Hello beautiful people, you may have noticed I didn’t have a Wednesday WIP post this week, and that is because I have actually been spending some time finishing up this Minecraft TNT Graphgan for my 7yr old.
I am so happy that it is done, and no longer taking up space in my craft room/study. I may have even done a little happy dance after the last end was sewed in. My Son is also happy it is finally finished, even though the first words out of his mouth when he received it were “it’s pretty small”! Kids huh.
The end results of all that work is a pretty heavy blanket that measures almost 110cm each side. It was crocheted in the C2C technique using Spotlight USA Style yarn, using a 5mm hook. Unfortunately, I am not 100% sure of the amount of yarn I ended up using as I wasn’t keeping track. It was probably only 1 skein of black, not quite 2 of white and 3-4 of the red. Though you can make this in any yarn you like with any hook.
Now that it is finally complete, I am happily sharing the graph I created to make it. Below you will find the whole graph, as well as smaller ones with it broken down into 4 parts for easier printing and following.
To save the images, just right-click on them and select save image/picture as…
If you use the graph, please let me know, either in the comments below or tag me on Instagram (crochetbycarms) with your creation. I would love to see it.
Hello and welcome to My First Wednesday WIP, where I show you 1 of the (many many) projects I have on the go.
I have heard rumours that there are people out there that finish off a project before starting another one. That is not me. At a guess, I have approximately 8 long-term projects going at the moment.
Today’s project has been a labour of love. I had a request for a Minecraft a blanket from my then 6yr old son, And with my newly found skills at C2C figured I could easily do a graphgan. Over a year later this baby still isn’t finished, though it is close.
I had to go looking through my Instagram posts to see when I started it, and my First post about on May 8th last year.
I think I was going to give it to him for his Birthday in October, that never happened. I get distracted too easily. Though I have been warned by him that it had better be ready for his birthday this year!
As simple as this graph looks, the multiple small colour changes did my head in. Lesson learnt, even if I do have to sew in a million ends, next time (if there is a next time) I will use bobbins to contain the mess.
In the meantime, it is sitting in a basket in the living room reminding me to finish it every time I go in there. Think I need to choose a TV show to binge and just sit down and do it. Soon, I promise.
I would love to hear what other projects people are currently working on. Let me know in the comments
