The Namaqualand Blanket is very special to me for many (mostly sentimental) reasons. It is meant to reflect the colours of the beautiful flowers that grace the Namaqualand ‘veld’ every Spring. I am delighted to share the pattern with you.
Sophie’s Universe is more than just a blanket. It is a journey of discovery and confidence-building. Written specifically for beginners, it contains step-by-step photos and hints to help you master the art of crochet. It brings me great joy to tell you that the Sophie’s Universe book is now available for sale.
The Banksia Shawl was designed for the February 2016 yarn retreat with Devon Sun Yarns. It is a delicate, lacy shawl with floral detail.
The Smile of Joy scarf is textured and colourful. Although the pattern works best with Willow Yarns Dappled yarn, it will look great in scrap yarn too.
These floral crochet snowflakes take less than 10 minutes to make. What is your favourite quick Christmas ‘make’?
Jenny and I are very excited to bring you the pattern for Charlotte’s Dream, a crochet blanket consisting of 12 Charlotte Squares with a simple Popcorn edging.
These Christmas light flowers are the perfect stash-busting project. Each flower takes less than a meter of yarn and you can use as many (or as few) colours as you like.
Crochet baskets are one of my favourite projects, both to create and to use. They are great for stash-busting and useful too!
The Banksia Border is created by alternating solid and lacy sections to resemble Banksia flowers. Framed on either side by a band of back post stitches, it would make a great addition to any blanket. You can also use it to ‘grow’ individual squares.
My Little Froggy Helper is the perfect crochet companion. He guards my hook and needles so that I always know where to find them.
