I haven’t crocheted in 30+ years, but I would like to make this in a larger and rectangular for my granddaughter. Can this be made in rows instead to get a larger size and if so, do you have any guidance?
Thank you so much!
Have you ever tried this starting with a solid color in the center and then switching to the multicolor? Niece is expecting twins, boy and girl, so I was thinking about seeing if there was a multicolor that would match up with both blue and pink solids so they’d each have similar but distinctive blankies.
How to end it once you finish the blanket?
Hi Mikey I am using pipsqueak for the very first tie i haven’t crocheted for over 40 years and i thought this would be a good thing to start as i learnt to crochet doing squares when i was very young, just doing it in plain white and it is beautiful. like a cloud.. thank you keep up the tutorials,
I just did this one for my boss who is expecting. I did it in white and “sittin’ pretty” varigated. It turned out beautiful! Love it!
Great tutorial! So easy to follow and understand that I probably won’t need to print the pattern. You instill creativity and imagination. THANKS!
Hi Mikey and Cathy,
Is there ANYTHING ,ANY LITTLE THING you can tell me to help me learn to work with Pipsqueak yarn! I love it, but I am a tight crocheter and although I have tried to “loosen up!” I often can’t feel the next stitch and yada yada yada…… you’re probably going to tell me it takes time/practice, but I wanted to ask just in case you had a trick up your sleeve. Thanks
Increase your hook size if you know you are tight… It may help you to get bigger stitches… Sure practice will help but increase your hook size and try that. 😀
Mikey, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE is there a pattern for the fish? 😀
Our very own Cathy made that fish from scratch as far as I know. It’s pretty cute isn’t it.
Yes yes omg I WANT that fish as well please please!
