Crochet takeaway

Crochet takeaway

I have been trawling my crochet Pinterest board as inspiration for a holiday crochet takeaway.

I want something that doesn’t require me to refer constantly to a pattern and something that doesn’t require too much counting for when I pause to accept a glass of wine, or perhaps an olive or two, whilst I sit and gaze across the shimmering turquoise sea, adjusting my hat and my lounger as the sun moves around the bay. 

Ahem! Back to the reality of a my day job in a cloudy chilly Leeds.

So I think I’ve decided upon this

Crochet cushion inspiration

Crochet cushion inspiration

Or at least I will use this for inspiration.

There are lots of examples of this type of work on this website here

A cushion cover crocheted in natural dishcloth cotton.

I’ll probably close up the gaps to the background grid slightly. I will incorporate some minky coloured crochet cotton to make some of the featured swirls. I might even design/makeup the swirly pattern in a more free hand way. 

It depends on how how chilled I am and which way the sun is shining………..

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  2. What a lovely idea to take your crochet projects away with you. I love the idea of being creative and productive whilst enjoying the sunshine! xXx


    • But strictly only for the plane and the balcony. I have a new stock of books on my kindle and some crafty/home design magazines saved up for the pool and the beach. Crochet cotton and suntan lotion shouldn’t mix.
      And I would be accused of ‘not switching off’ however bizarre that sounds!!!


  3. Great choice, that rug is amazing. I just took some cotton to make simple dishcloths, no pattern required. They don’t get so anxious about a crochet hook at the airport. Knitting needles, even wooden ones are at risk of being removed.


  4. I look forward to seeing your work on this. Hope you have a great holiday 🙂


  5. I can’t go away without projects to do – they are my comfort blanket! These have inspired me to do something in crochet now – you wicked woman you! I do love the idea of the rug and am just going to go and have a look…..
