Let’s Celebrate (a free pattern)

Well 2018 has started well, with a new design published in this month’s Inside Crochet and the new book is progressing well (fingers crossed it stays that way). So, I thought I’d share an old favourite of mine, perfect for cheering up those dull days before spring really does bring sunshine and flowers. These little garlands are so simple and you can easily personalise them … Continue reading Let’s Celebrate (a free pattern)

They captured the fun but practical design perfectly. I chose Erika Knight’s British Blue Wool for these. Not just because it’s grown, spun and processed in Yorkshire, but because it’s … Continue reading Free Pattern for Wool Week

Free pattern: crochet gift bag

Welcome back to the little crochet gift bag!  I “retired” this project from Ravelry as I hoped I would find time to update the pattern in a new yarn sample (Rowan Calmer has now been discontinued).
