How cute are these? Perfect for keeping baby’s feet snug and warm at any time of the year.
Crocheted in the round there are no seams to upset baby’s comfort (which as any parent can tell you is one of the most important things!)
These boots come slightly higher up the leg than normal baby booties for added comfort, warmth and stay-on-ability.
There is a single button fastening allowing for easy putting on.
Sized for 0-6 month old babies there should be a fair amount of wear out of these boots.
Made from 100% acrylic yarn for both comfort and ease of care, these boots are fully machine washable on a 40 degree wool/delicate cycle.
If you love this item but would prefer a different colour to what is available then please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements as I can make any item to order for you.
These little butterflies have been hand-made using crochet. They are light and delicate and will look beautiful in the hair of a girl of any age.
These delicate butterflies would make a wonderful decoration for a bride or bridesmaids and could be made in any colour to match the theme of your wedding.
Each butterfly is crocheted from 100% crochet cotton with a 1.5mm hook before being fastened onto the hair grip with the ends then being finished with a touch of glue for added security.
Not only can these little butterflies be made in your choice of colours, I have reds, blues, greens, pinks and many variegated colours and shades but you can also have your choice of hair grip colour, blonde, brown or black to make the grip less noticeable when being worn.
If you like this item but cannot see a colour combination that you like, either in the thread or the hair grip colour then please do not hesitate to contact me as I can make any item to order.
Hello there, fancy another square?
This is the square for today, the Sweet Sixteen square, a really easy pattern to follow and an effective looking square.
I worked as per pattern instructions then added 2 rounds of UK dc in the same colours to bring my square up to size.
(This is a US pattern so remember the name changes for stitches)
Hello and good morning to you,
Here is today’s square, Centred Square.
This is from the book 200 Crochet blocks for blankets, throws and afghans and the instructions can be found on pg61.
As with most of the patterns in this book I had to miss out a couple of rows to keep my square to size, in this instance I worked up to and including Round 6, I then did 2 more rounds of dc, one in each colour.
Hello there you, how is it going? Good I hope!
Here is today’s square which I have called Calypso, the reason for this is that the square is from a free pattern for an afghan which is called Calypso.
You can find the instructions for the Calypso Afghan by clicking on the link, this will take you to the American site, Lion Brand Yarns where there is a wealth of crochet goodness, most of the patterns are free too! You have to register to view the patterns but this is a quick process and totally free, patterns will obviously use US terminology.
I worked as per pattern instructions but did one more round of trebles (US – double crochet) before finishing off with a dc round (US – sc)
Hello again you..
Here is another square for you to like and possibly do, today’s square is called Flower Love. There is also a 3D version of this flower square available on the same blog.
The instructions can be found here for Flower Love Square, I worked as per pattern up to and including Round 6, for Round 7 I worked another round of (UK) tr’s before doing 2 rounds as per Round 7 of the pattern.
Today we move back to 200 Crochet Blocks… and to pg 99.
This square is very easy but looks a lot more complicated!
I worked as per pattern instructions up to and including Round 6 and went straight to Round 8.
Today’s square, Quater, has been named this because the pattern (another charity shop find!) has a stitch/loop with this name and I have never heard of this before!
Pattern uses UK terminology throughout;
Special Stitch : Quater – qtr
- insert hook into ring/indicated space 2 rows below from front to back and pull up yarn, twist loop twice and sl st to complete.
- with A, 6ch and sl st to join into a ring
- 3ch, 3tr, 3ch (4tr 3ch) 3 times, sl st into 3rd ch to join, break off A
- With B (always work 3ch to counts as 1st tr on every round)
- ( 2tr in ch 3 sp, 1 tr in next 4tr, 2tr in next 3ch sp, 1qtr into ring in between groups of 4tr on prev round) 4 times, sl st to top of 3ch, fasten off B
- With C, (2tr in corner ch sp, 1tr in next 7tr, 2tr in next tr, 3 ch for corner) 4 times, sl st to join, fasten off C
- With D, (2tr in 3corner ch sp, 11tr, 2tr in ch3 sp, 1qtr 2rows below) 4 times, sl st to join, fasten off D
- With MC (2tr in 1st tr, 1tr in next 13tr, 2tr in next tr, 3ch ) 4 times, sl st to join
- 1ch, dc in same (dc in each tr, 2dc 1ch 2dc in 3ch sp) 4 times, sl st to join.
I decided to do today’s square, Textured Bluebells using a blue yarn so the name matched the square (unlike day 110 – Sunshine Lace!)
It took me a while to work out the correct chain length for the pattern but it works out as multiples of 3 + 1 (add 1 for base chain) so I started with a chain of 23 and then worked as per pattern instructions found on pg 36 of 200 Crochet Blocks, before finishing off with 2 rounds of UK dc.
Very easy pattern and quite rhythmic once you got going, would be a good stitch for larger projects too.
Hello and hiya!
Today’s square, Twin Stripes is another simple and effective square.
I started with a chain of 24 and then followed the pattern instructions found onpg 36 of 200 Crochet Blocks, before edging with 2 rounds of UK dc.
This stitch pattern gives a light soft lacy fabric which would lend itself to many uses.
