So far I am still using one skein of each colours.

Approximately 150x75 cm

Project Start Date:

Progress Photos

I kinda alternate the puff stitch for the flower petals into 3dctog. Gotta learn puff stitch some other time.



Here is the continuation to the process of this project. :) As usual, I make a collection of the first round to be attached to the next colour on the pattern. It's really quite fun, as I can practice making my treble crochet --I am still having problems with tensions on my treble crochet---.


On-Going Blocking
Plus, here's what I have been working on so far, and I decided to block the some of them on to my bed. I can leave them in place during the making of other squares, and take them off when I want to use the bed. Not practical maybe, but I have this urge to see how the throw would or should turn out to be after the final blocking. LOL. Impatient me!

So the throw would be 6 squares x 12 squares long, with 1 square equals to approximately 9 cm.

I am soooo excited!!!
The sofa throw is nearing its final squares and finishing touches. I only have 8 more squares to attach and I kinda started the border on the fixed sides of the throw earlier, instead of waiting until every square is attached. Anyways, I photographed this earlier, when it has about 12 more squares to be attached.

 
almost all attached :)

FINISHED IT! :) :)
TOTAL WORK TIME: 2 weeks

For the conclusion:
The materials I am using are:
- Big Ply Cotton White = 3 balls @ 100 gr.
- Big Ply Cotton Fuchsia = 2 balls @ 100 gr.
- Big Ply Cotton Multicoloured: greenish-purplish = 2.5 balls @ 100 gr.
- border: Big Ply Cotton Light Purple = 1.5 balls @ 100 gr.
TOTAL BALL COUNT: 9 balls of yarn.
PHEW..... quite a lot yea? But imagine that I didn't actually whip a lot of money out for this project, because the skeins are available in my stash from 1 year ago. HA. Due to my current financial condition, I have to be very wise on spending my yarn fund. Tsk.. I know. I only needed to buy extra white skeins, as I am using a lot of white in other projects as well.

Tomorrow I will be doing the border, I'm still looking for inspirations although I know which colours I want to use. I can't believe that I did all this in one and a half week. Awesome! :)
