My Most Recent Crochet Project

A few of you have asked what my most recent crochet project is called.

My current project is called Spanish Tiles and it is no walk in the park.

Spanish Tiles

This one is four colors and when colors are involved there is a lot of clean up to do with the little snippets of yarn. They all have to be weaved into the work and snipped. This is drudgery. See all the threads on the paper towel?

Tailings - AKA Drudgery

I imagine some crafter, somewhere could work them into a craft project.

The octagonal tiles are sewn together with smaller square tiles filling the gaps.

In the future, a triangular shaped tile will fill in the outer edges but I have not reached that part, yet.

The most difficult thing about this pattern is that I have to do maybe three rows then another row that dives back into the second row and joins another row to hold the petals down. The backside of this looks nothing like the front side.

I like to do these crochet things because working with a pattern and counting all the time does not free my mind to worry about things I cannot change.

Also, unless I put the item in show, there are very few people around who want to suggest edits and changes.

So, there you have it. This is the crochet project that has me doing week-end yarn runs.

  1. Oh wow, Sally, that really is a challenge you’ve set for yourself there.

    Now I can understand what you were saying about having to tie off all the ends.

    Looks a lot of work. Should be amazing when done.
