Oopsie I haven’t updated in a while as I’ve had a busy, busy, busy week crocheting, playing with dogs, attending a steampunk exhibition and carbooting amongst other delights. I’ve been working hard on my own crochet jewelry designs, reading through and practicing different stitch designs from the stitch dictionary’s I recently purchased in order to increase my stitch knowledge. which I will share on here shortly.
Here’s a selection of some more wonderful designs that I have turned into creations for myself and family to enjoy. I’ve been busting through my 50 + que of patterns I must create from Ravelry. 🙂
Bowtie necklace – pattern by Sara Dudek available on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-bowtie-necklace
Amazingly funky. This was quick and simple to do as it only involved crocheting a rectangle and creating a tie and chain. A really fun project and I loved the bobble chain which added extra fun to the design. I used King Cole – Mirage yarn for the first time and was happy by how beautifully it worked up. I shall definitely be using again for some projects.
Mademoiselle’s Crochet Scarflet– pattern by Eva Wenig available on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mademoiselles-crochet-scarflet
Easy to follow pattern to make a wonderful little choker/scarflet. The photo’s and step by step instructions made this great for beginners. It didn’t take much yarn at all. I loved the combination of shell stitches and bobbles. I added pink glittery buttons to make this a really girly accessory for the autumn. I can see me making a few more of these in different yarns and colours for my autumn/winter wardrobe. This pattern was perfect for testing out my new grey King Cole haze yarn. Haze is wonderfully soft and fluffy but doesn’t seem to give good stitch definition. So I think this would work for winter scarf’s/hats and other items where you want warmth and are not worried about showing off an intricate lacy crocheting.
Scarflet (130 Drops scarf) – pattern by DROPS design available on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/130-29-scarf-in-cotton-viscose
Another simple pattern which created a beautiful scarflet. I made this as a gift to my mum to keep out the winter chills from an open necked coat.
