This Emma Square was designed for the June 2017 Devon Sun Yarns Retreat and named after a very courageous friend of mine. It is easy to memorise once you have made a few and is small enough to use with scraps of 10g.
This crochet thimble and scissor keeper has been affectionately dubbed ‘Aunty Mary’s Thing’. This is a relatively straightforward pattern and doesn’t take long to make.
This ammonite crochet hook roll is my nod to the beautiful ammonites and sparkly iron pyrite that grace the shores of the Jurrasic Coast.
I am very excited to share the pattern for the Memory Lane Blanket with you. The pattern consists of a simple six-row repeat. The border is simple but elegant, rounding the blanket off nicely.
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.
