Teddy and Hearts Baby Blanket

I made this blanket for a pregnant friend. I thought a Teddy bear and hearts in white would be perfect for either a girl or boy. The only thing that would change is the colour of the ribbon and the corner hearts.

The pictures in this blanket are made using around-the-post treble stitches.

Easy Handbag

This bag is very easy to make. A great project for a beginner. And it can be made any size.

Free Crochet bag patternFree Crochet bag pattern

It's made from the bottom up, working in rounds then rows. The strap is added afterwards.
I made this using a thin yarn and a 3.5mm hook. But it can be made using any yarn that you like and the recommended hook.

Basic Warm Socks

I have just finished these in time for summer! Going to have to wait until next winter to use them!

Free knitted sock pattern

This pattern can be used to make socks of any size using whichever wool and needle combination you like. 
You start at the toe and increase until you have the desired width. Then you keep working in rounds until it's the right length. Add the heel and again keep going until it's as high as you like. You only need to count stitches and rounds for the second sock (just to make sure they are identical!). The only difference between the right and left sock is half a round on the leg.

Mesh Bag

This mesh bag is very handy. As it rolls up small it is ideal to use on trips that require a bag in only one direction, like the supermarket. It is also large enough to be used for anything.

I decide to try my hand at crochet flowers, particularly daffodils. I search for (and tried) a few different patterns, but none of them look right to me.
So I decide to design my own pattern. After lots of tries I came up with this pattern.

This pattern is made in two parts and sewn together afterwards.
I used Crochet thread NÂș. 8 and a 1 mm hook.

Pink Daisy Baby Blanket

This pattern is written in 3 parts: The Granny squares, Joining and the border.


V-Stitch scarf

This scarf is pretty, easy and fast. It only took me 2 evenings (while watching TV!).

It is basically all V-Stitches!


Make the starting chain as long as you would like the width of your scarf to be. Keep in mind should be a multiple of 3 + 2 (3 per V-Stitch and 1 each end for turning).

Blocking 4. Small 3D bells and tubes.

The easiest way to block 3D objects is to stretch them over something the perfect size and shape. Now if you are lucky enough to have something at hand perfect use it, but if you don't it's time the get creative!!
When I was making my bells I couldn't think of anything (well nothing that worked!) so I decide that they looked good without blocking!! But when I was making my daffodils I needed to block the trumpets. No way around not blocking!!
So after many ideas, tries and searches around the house I finally came up with this idea. It's simple and requieres no new objects!!

Bocked 3D bells

What you need:

-Pins (Lots of)
-Baking paper (or something similar)
-A blocking board (a thick piece of cardboard, styrofoam, etc)
-Something to use as stuffing. (cut off ends of wool, cotton wool, stuffing, etc)
-A sheet of paper (if you wish to draw out shapes to pin to)

Wavy Blanket

  I made this blanket full size. As the pattern has lots of puff stitches it is very warm! I really enjoyed having over my legs on cold evenings while I was making it! 
  This pattern has 3 parts the body (the waves), the border prepare and then the shell border.

Blocking 3. Blankets

  Now there are lots of ways to block blankets.
  Lots of people like to pin them to towels and lay them out to dry. I tried this with the 1st blankets I done, but I didn't like it. I found that the towels didn't stay flat, so the blankets didn't stay in shape. It also took them forever to dry as one side now had a wet towel stuck to it!
  So I decide to try something else. I prefer the use of a collapsible washing line and a load of pegs. This way the blanket stays in shape. It also means that it has air on all side so it drys faster. And as mine is easy to move I can move the whole thing in and out of the sun/wind.
