April Inspiration

Good Morning everyone!!!!
I am super excited to tell you about the next 30 days here at Crochet Chiq! I am been watching #moodblanket posts on my twitter and instagram feed and I have been inspired, For those that don't know mood blankets are made by crocheting 1 square a day depending on you mood and at the end of the year you have an awesome blanket!!! 

I want to do something quicker than that :) I am going to be making 6-7 inch squares Monday-Saturday this month and then add an edging and joining on Sundays! I will be using colors in Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice line. I will use all sorts of hook sizes to get which ever stitch to the size I need. I also want to do more of a inspiration type square for example below is a photo of my first day's square
When my boyfriend wanted to go out for pasta I knew I had these exact shades!

I will link every square to this post and I will be posting daily! Are you excited? Do you want to crochet your own #aprilinspiration blanket?

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here

Easy simple no shaping stocking ornament

Step 1 This is the star stitch but you can make these any size and any stitch just make it in this shape. The above sample has 19 star stiches on the bottom ( 2 rows plus beginning hdc row)and reduces to 10 star stiches ( 3 rows) step 2 turn so the right sides are facing each other, and sew them together like the above picture,. isdsjfklajlkdsjc step three turn right side out! attach a chain 5 if desires so you can hang it. I am making about 30 of these for my 6 year old to hand out as Christmas gifts at school with mini candy canes in them!
