I cannot tell you how hard it has been for me to keep this Sophie Stool a secret!! Every time I walk past it (or steal it back from the boys), I get such a rush of happiness. I’m so pleased that I can finally tell you about it :)
Mandala 21 was designed by my friend John Kelly 3 years ago and remains one of my most feel-good crochet makes. The pattern is suitable for adventurous beginners.
The Midnight Garden Lapghan I designed for Yarn 2 is a celebration of moonlit walks and simple crochet pleasures. The pattern is easy to memorise and the motifs are small, making it the perfect choice for an on-the-go project. Although the colours aren’t traditional baby colours, this blanket would be great as a gift for a new baby.
Yay! It’s Friday and I can finally share the pattern for the My Story Shawl with you. This last week has been full of stories for the Lookatwhatimade family and I am still debating which ones I can share with you. So, while I keep myself busy with pondering, you are welcome to start making this shawl.
At last! I am finally getting around to sharing the Namaqualand Shawl pattern with you. The Namaqualand patterns are very dear to my heart (you can read more about that HERE) and I wear my shawl often! Every time I do, I am reminded of last summer’s lazy walks to and from the station, crocheting this shawl as I walked. […]
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’?
