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 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.
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.
This week I am honoured to bring you Part 14 of the Wonder CAL 2016, hosted by American Crochet and the Crochet With Us Facebook Group. My mom and I can’t agree on whether this stitch looks more like quiver trees or Egyptian fans. What do you think?
The Really Lazy Popcorn is a simple way to crochet Popcorns without having to remove your hook from your work. It is made over 2 rounds and can replace Popcorns in any pattern, provided that the pattern requires you to work into the Popcorns in subsequent rows/rounds.
I am very excited to bring you my latest 12″ square: Wishing Well. Designed for the Moogly CAL 2016, it was inspired by a flight of fancy.
Today I am sharing the pattern for the ‘Joy’s Journey Crochet Blanket’ with you. It is an extremely simple, meditative pattern, enhanced by the colour-change yarn and rounded off with a fun pompom edging.
