99 Days of Crochet - Day 83 Full Bloom

I actually quite like how this turned out. It didn't curl up, and didn't take forever to work up because it's in half double crochet. This color was a bit difficult to photograph with the popcorn stitch, but it looks nice in person.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Pumpkin yarn with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 82 Broken Stripes

I just had to pick some bright colors to keep this one lighthearted, since I couldn't take this so-called "stitch" seriously. It's literally just double crochet with switching colors every so often. Maybe it would make a better actual flag than a stitch.

I used a K hook with Red Heart Super Saver Pumpkin, Pale Yellow, and Spring Green yarns.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 81 Large Diamonds

This square was quite disappointing. It seemed like every row I was missing a stitch or couldn't find the stitch where I was supposed to work next, and the whole thing folded over so much it made the square much smaller than it should be.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Petal Pink yarn with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 80 Chiseled Columns

This is an.. interesting stitch. I'm not too fond of it, but it's different enough than other stitches to make it unique.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Burgundy yarn with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 79 Hourglass II

This Hourglass pattern turned out much better than the first! Though it curls a bit, the post shapes are more defined. That might be due to the thicker yarn, but also this one was single crochet so the posts weren't trying to stretch as far. This stitch might be interesting with two colors alternating or even multiple colors in the non-post rows.

I used Caron One Pound Blue yarn with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 78 Hourglass I

I wanted to like this stitch, but my version didn't turn out very well. The double crochet post stitches turned out too short and pulled the square into a curl, so I switched to triple crochet posts at the ends. That didn't seem to help much, though, and overall the stitch was quite disappointing.

I used Craft Smart Value Gray yarn with a K hook.

99 Days of Crochet - Day 77 Dynamic Diamonds

I was quite looking forward to this square, and I was not disappointed in it. I am however disappointed that I somehow did a row twice, and as a result the pattern got flipped to the other side at one point. There are an even number of rows in the repeat so it shouldn't have reversed, but I wasn't about to go back and redo half of the square to fix it.

I used Lion Brand Pound of Love Pastel Pink with an I hook.
