I've been asked to crochet a couple of baby blankets for a charity event in the summer, so I decided to stay with my favourite star shaped afghans which are so easy to do and they always look really pretty.
Both are crocheted in acrylic double knitting yarn
There's one for a girl
And one for a boy!!
They look like five pointed star fish and once you get the first few rounds completed they are really easy to do and can be done in any size.
Since there is always a need for an extra bag or two I decide to experiment with crochet string bags in different yarn thicknesses. These fold up into your handbag and hold more than you think, although they do STRETCH quite a bit !!
The green bag is crocheted in Debbie Bliss Mia wool/cotton mix and the multi-coloured bag is crocheted in a thick variegated double knitting acrylic weight yarn,
