Crochet: Throw, Baby Blanket
Definitely not a bland baby blanket! A multi-coloured stripy blanket made to suit any baby. I have used eight different colours but this can be used with any colour combination and is the pattern is suitable for a multitude of yarns. Empty that stash and make it up to please yourself. There was enough left over from 8 balls of DB Eco Aran to put...
Crochet: Beanie, Toque, Brimmed Hat
I saw this Snowball yarn and wanted to try it so here is the result. In reality this yarn is designed for knitters but I wasn’t going to let that stop me! It’s not the easiest yarn to crochet with so if you are a complete beginner maybe get used to working circles and changing yarns with another project or two first. I have made the instructions...
This cowl shape is based on the knit version of the bandana cowl (http://www.purlbee.com/bandana-cowl/) which I really loved and wanted to recreate in crochet. I’ve used a up and down stitch for some subtle texture without losing the well-defined shape of the scarf.
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
A quickest ever hat to match the quickest ever wrist warmers (my super chunky wrist warmers)! Made with less than 100g of the lovely Sirdar Big Bamboo this took less than an hour. So give yourself a couple of hours and a cup of tea and, voìla! a quick and easy present. Or perhaps you won’t be able to let it go….
Crochet: Fingerless Gloves
Perhaps the quickest ever wrist warmers to make and enjoy! Made with less than two 50g balls of the lovely Sirdar Big Bamboo I worked these up in around 40 minutes. As you can see a pair of warmers like this go well over thinner gloves keeping your hands warm without obstructing your hands at work. Equally good without.
Looking for something that looks much more difficult than it is? Want to experiment without worrying about ruining your work? Then look no further. Made in the yarn and to the size of your choice this is the perfect cowl to take you through autumn, winter and spring.
Two patterns for hair bands in the same pattern but with very different looks. These can be worked up in minutes and are a perfect quick present for the girls in your life. Or a super-quick matching accessory for a new outfit. Any yarn will work and they can both be accessorised with your choice of button, ribbon or flower.
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
This is the hat to match my Brick Stitch Scarf and my second crochet pattern. I really enjoyed designing something a bit more masculine but I think this could look good on either men or women depending on the yarn. It would work equally well with stripes, changing colour every one or two rows.
I designed this as a (very) simple scarf with a subtle pattern that won’t be too obvious and therefore suit a man of simple tastes. But not so boring that you lose the will to crochet halfway through. Of course this stitch can be adapted for use in a hat, cowl, sweater etc etc. Depending on the colourways and size it can also be adapted for wome...
