I’m not best known for my love of cats, in fact, I’ve held a vehement dislike for them most of my life. I was most surprised with myself when I realised I’ve come to love Internet sensation Grumpy Cat (a.k.a. Tardar Sauce). We’ve shared many a meme of the mardy moggy at work, and one unfortunate member of the team is now known affectionately as ‘GC’.
I love making things from Hama beads (Perler), especially mug coasters. They don’t take long, make great gifts and you can replicate almost anything!
Our cottage has been rather freezing of late, and the girls feet getting colder so I went on the hunt for a crochet slippers pattern. I was delighted to find this free crochet slippers pattern from Megan at Tampa Bay Crochet (adapted from a pattern by Nikki Kirkwood) and promptly worked some up for my girls.
Merry Christmas! We’ve had a relaxing festive season thus far, and I’m really enjoying having some extended time off work to spend with the children. I thought I would share some of the crochet projects I worked up for Christmas, so today I am sharing the pattern for a child’s scarf. It’s made of trebles and can be crocheted for any size by adjusting the initial chain length to suit.
Childs Crochet Scarf Pattern
I made this amigurumi caricature doll for a colleagues birthday earlier this year, and it received great comments (especially the pouty lips!). So I thought I’d share the crochet pattern here on the craft blog.
The crochet terms used throughout this pattern are UK, if you want to convert into US crochet terms, please see my crochet abbreviations and conversion guide. This project is worked in rounds.
