Crochet balls are incredibly versatile. I infuse mine with essential oils and use them for a room freshener/stress reliever. What would you use them for?
This is a free crochet shawl pattern for the Monday Blues Shawl. Made with Scheepjes Noorse Sokkenwol, it can be worn as a scarf too.
This lazy waves shawlette is worked from the top down. It lends itself perfectly to using a slow colour change yarn.
This continuous crochet baby blanket is perfect for a preemie or for a car seat blanket. It is worked in a spiral.
This is the pattern for my ‘Summer in Swanage’ crochet blanket. It contains plenty of photos and helpful tips. Enjoy!
This Lazy Waves Dishcloth is easy without being boring. The simple stitch pattern is soothing and looks great!
This crochet Water Buffalo is part of our Little Zoo series. The horns, ears, and legs are joined as you go, making for very little sewing.
These chunky crochet slippers are super comfy and they work up quickly. You can make them with yarn, t-shirt yarn, or plarn, so they suit every budget!
I love this Winter Cottage Square. The busy center is off-set by a simple (peaceful) border. For me it is the calm after the storm.
