Crocheted Wreaths and Garlands

I picked up a great new crochet book at the weekend from The Works. It’s called Crocheted Wreaths and Garlands, by Kate Eastwood. There are some gorgeous things to create. Here are a few little samples… Looking forward to trying out these patterns!

On the Hook 4/1/20

I thought I’d try and do a regular crochet update, and a Saturday morning seems like a good time. So what have I been up to recently? While I was visiting family for Christmas, I picked up some Caron Simply Soft from Hobbycraft at half price. I was very pleased with this bargain! I’ve startedContinue reading “On the Hook 4/1/20”

Crochet Art

I created some crochet art for members of my family this Christmas and I can now finally show it off after they’ve all received their gifts. First off, for my sister I created a branch of cherry blossom, with some embroidery to create the branch: Mum had some Japanese Anemones, again with some embroidery forContinue reading “Crochet Art”

Ombre Jumper finished

Finished this today. I’m mostly happy with it although it’s not as nice as the one that inspired it. It’s a little shorter than I’d usually like and being as it’s bottom up I would have needed to add rows at the beginning but I didn’t so I shall just have to get used toContinue reading “Ombre Jumper finished”

Blue Circles

The Blue Circles cardi was finished on Thursday and I wore it to work on Friday. I did feel slightly overdressed as it’s so special, but I felt proud of myself for finishing it. Here are some photos taken immediately after finishing it. It was blocked again afterwards so the bottom corners are now moreContinue reading “Blue Circles”

Blue Circles Cardi

It’s called the ‘Golden Circles Cardigan’ by Juliette Bezold and it’s available from Annie’s Craft Store Website So far I’m enjoying it a lot – IContinue reading “Blue Circles Cardi”

Temperature Blanket

I’ve been making a temperature blanket since the start of the year. I made up the pattern – it’s row of htr (hdc US), then a row of tr (dc US) into the back 2 loops of the htrs (hdcs US). It gives it a bit of texture as well as the changing colours. ThereContinue reading “Temperature Blanket”

No longer secret crochet!

Now that Christmas has been and gone I can finally share pictures of the gifts I was making. Bags I actually made four bags, but forgot to take a photo of the one that was for my uncle! So here are the other three… I used the “Stylin’ Tote Bag” pattern by Cathy Phillips forContinue reading “No longer secret crochet!”

Orchid Cardi Progress

I have made it past the armholes!  Still a long way to go though. It’s so pretty! It’s not going to stay in this pattern all the way. It has a kind of waist band which is simple dc rows and sc rows (tr & dc in UK terms), and then it flairs out withContinue reading “Orchid Cardi Progress”
