We hope to inspire your creativity with the projects we share here. We are home schoolers and love to be different, learn new things and have fun. We try to be as open minded as possible and when people say you should do something in a certain way, we ask why? Why should we follow suit? We are all unique and process things in different ways, so we should be free to express ourselves in our own way.

Crochet Action Man Blanket

Kameron is such a massive fan of Action Man. As he has a massive collection of toys, DVDs and books, I decided to draw out the Action Man logo on square paper and then followed this to make the blanket in the Half-Treble Corner to Corner technique. It ended up being so massive that it covers a double bed! But he loves it anyway. This is one of my favourite projects. I really enjoyed designing it and learning a new technique. Kameron also loves wrapping up in it and he can even make a tent with it because it is so big.


We love Action Man that much that Kameron and Korey have a blog about the History of Action Man - http://actionmanonline.blogspot.co.uk/


I worked in UK Half Treble Crochet/htr [US Half Double Crochet/hdc] stitch in the Corner to Corner (C2C) technique. This consists of working squares of ch 2 and 3 htr diagonally, from one corner to another. I also worked a UK Treble Crochet/tr [US Double Crochet/dc] stitch edge in grey.

Yarn

James C. Brett Top Value DK (shade - Black 8430, Orange 8443).

12 (each colour) x 100g (3.5oz/317yds/290m) ball.

Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light Worsted/DK].

Tension/gauge: 22 stitches x 30 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].


I would give the yarn James C. Brett Top Value DK a 4 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was extremely easy to work;

- There is a large choice of colours available;

- The feel of it is very soft once washed.  Although, for large projects is does get very heavy.

- I think if you are looking for a quality budget yarn this is one of the best yarns on the market for price, colour choice, quality, multiple uses and quantity on a ball.

- The cost of yarn is very cost effective - I paid about £1.65 per 100g ball.

- Would I use this yarn again? YES, DEFINITELY.


James C. Brett Chunky with Merino (shade - Grey 9).

1 x 100g (3.5oz/164yds/150m) ball.

Weight category: UK Chunky [US 5/Bulky/Chunky].

Tension/gauge: 14 stitches x 20 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 6mm/UK 4 [US J/10] hook.

The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].


I would give the yarn James C. Brett Chunky with Merino a 4 out of 5 for the following reasons:-

- It was extremely easy to work.

- There is a large choice of colours available;

- The feel of it is very soft once washed.

- The cost of yarn is reasonable for the amount you get on each ball - I paid about £2.95 per 100g ball.

- Would I use this yarn again? YES, DEFINITELY.
