Textured Circles 3 Textured Circles Blanket – Third version made for a sweet lady in Alabama! Find my free pattern here, or look at this blanket to order a custom, handmade piece. When I started on this blanket, I couldn’t help but set up an evolution shot. This is one of my favorite blankets to make – you can use any colors and the effect is gorgeous. Amigurumi I found a Koala 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 koalas 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 4.

Dorothy Crochet Hexagon Motif Ready for something a little different from the usual crocheted square? Try a hexagon instead. This pretty one features a little bit of overlay crochet with the treble crochet V-stitches dipping down into previous rounds. Dorothy Hexagon Motif Size 8 ½” across side to side; 10” across point to point rose hip View from Blarney Castle, Ireland ...I am by Ireland after our little jaunt there -- by its countryside, coastline, cities, villages, and especially, by its people who charmed me in a big way with their warmth, helpfulness and, to be sure, their infectious sense of humour... If it wouldn't be for missing my children a whole lot, I would have loved to stay on longer and keep roaming through this wonderful country; I definitely want to go back, perhaps with my children this time, to explore more of its many bewitching corners...

O is for Owl: Crochet Owl Applique If you've been a long time follower of my blog you know I have a little obsession over owls :) Whoooo can resist their cuteness! You may recognize this pattern. It's the beginning part of my Owl Granny Square. You can find the original pattern HERE but I am re-posting the owl portion below. Feel free to make this little cutie in multiple colors or crochet in one color and stitch on embellishments as I did. Maybelle Square Crochet Pattern Let me tell you the story about this Maybelle Square. A couple of months ago, or even longer, this idea of turning the Maybelle flower into a crochet square started to take form in my head. I had a few goes without luck. I am telling you, you do NOT want to see my terrible trials...

Alien Hominid, Chibi Kawaii Cat, Bunny and Bear Amigurumi Patterns The gang is all here. I was working on a new pattern for a flexible pattern that could be made into various cute, chibi-style animals or humanoid forms, when my husband pointed out how well suited the head shape was to make the pattern into an Alien Hominid. Not content with just a kitty, bear and bunny rabbit, and eager to implement any aspect of nerdery possible, I endeavored to make his dreams come true and set about crafting him his very own Alien Hominid, which he adores. This pattern is a flexible chibi-style pattern that can be modified to make any cute chibi style animal or humanoid.

How to Seamlessly Change Colors in Crochet Today I want to show you how you can seamlessly change colors in crochet. Changing yarn colors within a row can be neat and easy. The trick is to prepare for the color change while working the stitch before the one that you want to show the next color. Put another way, the new color is introduced on the final yarn over of the stitch before. Let’s use some photos to make this easier… Crochet Watermelon Coin Purse For the rest of the pattern do not join, use a stitch marker to keep track of your rounds. Sew on small black buttons on the front and back and your done! You can purchase the Sharp Crochet Hook at www.sharpcrochethook.com.

Crochet Blooming Flower Pillow Last week I saw the most adorable Blooming Flower Pot Holder made by Days of Yarning and featured on Hookin on Hump Day. I knew immediately I needed to make this into a pillow for my baby girl (I'm 23 weeks pregnant this week). I had just purchased the Daisy Garden Nursery Bedding from Pottery Barn Kids and this blooming flower would go perfectly with my theme! The pattern for the pot holder is almost the exact same pattern as the Blooming Flower Cushion made by Attic 24 (another favorite pattern of mine!).
