Between you and me, I really can't believe I made this! I'm just thrilled, totally and completely, as you will be too if you decide to make one! A crocheted bowl that's actually usable? Yes!
I sort of think it does. Or at least it seems so to me. And I've definitely got the crochet bug these days. I've got a little monster running around my house these days, so I thought I'd create a hat to reflect his wild insane out-of-control hilariously adorable personality.
I love the Android logo guy. He’s adorable. So I thought I’d make a stuffed one!
I found a Koala Bear Amigurumi Pattern in the Woman’s Day website and I have some off-white and gray organic cotton yarns on hand, so I made a pair of these small little stuffed koala bears for my kids in reverse color. Some ideas to make it differently: 1. This adorable little koala is about 3-5″ tall only (depend on your yarn and the matching hook size), install a key ring on it’s head and turn it into a key chain, hang it to the bag’s zipper. 2. If we sew the limbs closer to the center of the body and insert 4 small strong magnets to the tip of each limb, you can make it “huggy” and hug on a tree branch or at the edge of your curtain or your pencil, ruler etc… 3. And, and…. instead of poly-fills, stuff beads into the body to weight it down and with the magnets of it limbs, it can be a cute memo holder on your desk too
Often, I received feedback from readers asking me where to get the yarns I used for my crochet and/or knitting projects. Frankly speaking, I bought most of my yarns from the local yarn shops around here and I do understand that it is hard for many of you to get the exact one. This time, to make my pattern more yarn-search-friendly, I used Lion Brand , a well known yarn company where you can order online or buy them from shop if they are available. This blanket is made from cotton medium worsted yarn, the basket weave pattern makes it warm and cozy in cold weather. If you need a very warm version for snowy winter, change the yarn to wool.

The crocheted Woven Stitch is one of my favorites to use for baby blankets and afghans since it is easy to stitch, using only chain stitch and single crochet, and it works up quickly into a nice single thickness lightweight blanket. It can be worked in one solid color, in a variegated yarn or in stripes and each combination looks great. Here's how it works: Start out with a beginning chain in multiples of 3, plus 2 extra. For the first row, skip the first 2 chains and work a single crochet into the third chain. Then chain 1, skip 1 chain, work 1 single crochet, as shown above.
The honeycomb stitch is an classic stitch mostly used in vintage patterns for lace coverlets and tablecloths. Use this stitch for a long table runner in a fun, bright color and bring a classic stitch out of antiquity! Chain a multiple of 5 plus 2
Grandma All Square... This tutorial is using a favorite of mine The Grandma All Round pattern... I have used the first 3 rounds and added 2 rows as a boarder to make it into a square... It is a perfect way to use as many scraps of wool you have and I haven't really thought about following any colour combo apart from the white boarder... Do try to buy your boarder wool in one go though as I was stuck with a wrong dye lot which was totally out of whack with the one I had and only managed to get back to the shop and find 2 balls that were the same...
