So It’s the 4th of July tomorrow, a day where the USA celebrates getting rid of us British. In honor of my American friends and followers here is my Top Ten USA themed crochet patterns. I hope you enjoy!
I hate cardigans!
Unless they are really chunky and baggy I think they should be banned!
So I always have a dilemma! You are going out on a spring (or summer in the UK) evening and its not hot enough to go without a jacket but not cold enough for jacket so what do you wear, especially if you are going to somewhere reasonably nice with a dress code?
With just under a week away from fathers day, there is still plenty of time to whip up your dad one of my favourite patterns below. If he is like mine and terrible to buy for then the handmade touch will add that extra little something to your present.
I have always had an interest in the zodiac signs, constellations, astrological symbols and how it all ties in with Greek mythology. So I thought what better than to channel this into my first love crochet! I have wanted to do a CAL for a long time so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
It was St George’s day yesterday the patron Saint of England, famous for dragon slaying, being the ultimate knight of the realm and gentleman. Being English through and through (sort of!) I thought I would publish a simple yet effective English Rose pattern in his honor as I have patterns already up for St David and St Patrick!
As my son is only 2 this is the first time I have been inflicted with the terrible last minute “find a special outfit day” for school or nursery. As I mentioned in my Top Ten Easter Patterns post I had to make at short notice an Easter Bonnet for a boy who is completely not interested in bunnies, chicks, or anything remotely Eastery apart from the chocolate.
It’s that time of year again where the pressure is on to decorate your home with bunnies, eggs and chicks, and in some cases (mine!) to knock up a winning Easter bonnet for the school competition with only a weekends notice. These are the days that I am glad I crochet!
For ages I have been trying to come up with a pattern for a market style tote bag pattern that is quick to work up, is a decent size but is still economical on its use of yarn. This is so I could create loads of bags easily and cheaply in different colours to suit my outfit or mood!
Need last minute ideas for Mother’s day presents? Here are my top ten Mother’s day patterns, which are also stash busters, that any mother would be proud to receive.
Whats the Craic?! I hope everyone is raring to go and get into the Irish spirit on the 17th, if not here is a few of my favourite St Patrick’s day themed crochet patterns to get you in the mood of the season! Read more
This year I didn’t fancy going full dress up for St. Patrick’s day but I still wanted a little touch of something as nod to the day in my outfit. As I didn’t have a boot cuff pattern yet I thought this would be a great time to design one that could be used any time of year as well as in the 17th of March! Who doesn’t love a Shamrock! Read more
In celebration of me finally restarting my blog I decided to share with you one of my favourite patterns. This pattern emerged from me tweaking my soap saver pattern and it is now my go to pattern or any small gifts. It’s a great way to use up yarn scraps and any beads you have laying about!
