A Daunting Task


Crochet Sea Pennies Pattern for BlanketThirteen year old Jaydin requested a crocheted bed throw some time ago. She’s had her colors and yarn picked out for months now and we’ve finally found a pattern that she likes! Thanks for the link to the Sea Pennies pattern by Julia Crossland, Mom! Think of me as I embark on this penny journey. I’m afraid to even calculate how many I’ll need. I fear when I’m done, I will never look at a penny the same again. ;-)

    Love the colors you are using . . and, yes, you will still be working on this when you have great grand babies :0}

      LOL Paula! I told my mom my 13 year old better root me on otherwise I will never complete it. Believe it or not, they crochet up rather quickly – the pain, as always, is weaving in the ends so I’m doing it as I go otherwise that will be my last step that halts the whole project for years. ;-)

    Weaving in the ends sounds like a job for Jaydin! ;) Can’t wait to see your progress!

    As I read the post I immediately thought of all the ends! Good move doing it as you go along.

    Arghh, and they are join as you go, so you can’t even do a stack & then sit down to join them! Good luck! (looks great btw!!)

    I am trying to make a scarf with the sea penneys pattern. Could you please tell me what you do with the loop string after you pull the circle closed? Do you tie a knot? I am new to crocheting so any advise you could give me would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi Crystal, I just crochet over it – no need to tie a knot! ;-) Hope that helps!

    I am wondering how you are joining them? My first grand-baby is due in May and I am bursting at the seams to make one of these for him or her~
    Also, how many stitches are you making into the center?
