The technique does not actually use normal knitting needles, not does it use a conventional crochet hook, but a differently shaped, wooden one she calls a 'pen'. I've written this tutorial on request of many avid knitters and crocheters on BurdaStyle and elsewhere who want to learn this variation. A lively debate on the technique and its origins can be found on www.ravelry.com (search for 'Dutch Knitting Pen') where it was established that the technique is probably neither Dutch nor knitting. In honour of my mum I am going to be following our family tradition and continue to call this knitting in this tutorial. If you are a purist, look away now!

Kira can be seen from afar by her long scarlet colored scarf - so the koalas sometimes call her the “Red Kira”. In her spacious pouch she keeps everyday things and her impressive collection of antique cushion springs - and of course her baby kangaroo feels most at home here. After a furious victory in the shadow boxing championship, the two prepare themselves for the world championship in long-jump. Kira is approximately 10,5 inches tall.
Porch pouf Crochet is perfect when you want to shape the yarn into certain shapes, and here´s a big round pillow dressed up with slip stitches. The pattern can be adjusted to fit any size round pillow. We crocheted the top and sides, and just pulled together in the bottom to avoid crocheting with the pillow inside. (The pouf is open under) It is important that the pillow you use for filling is big enough to stretch the cover properly, if you have a really soft and squishy pillow it has to be much bigger than the cover, or use more than one stacked on top of eachother.

Pretty Little Petals [Free Pattern] Strictly speaking, this post was intended to be the "Part Two" section of the Granny Oblong saga. Except that I went on a frogging spree, and now the whole thing is sitting in the "in progress" box (which has a lid, so I don't have to look at them for a while! :P) But since you were promised a pattern, and since this is called "eggbirddesigns" not "eggbirdthefrog", a pattern ye shall receive!! I hope you like it :) Pretty Little Petals Making a picnic dress Several people have asked me how to make my Picnic Dress. It’s a bit too complicated for the step by step instruction on how to draft a pattern I gave for the draped t-shirt, but I hope this will be enough detail for anyone who is familiar with how dresses are made. You will need 4 yards of 45″ fabric and an 18″ zipper. These are the pieces of the pattern. Mark out the measurements listed and the distances between them.
