As one of the many wedding gifts I have been making recently, I chose to make a super chunky chevron queen bed sized blanket. This blanket works up quite quickly and in incredibly warm! The look I was going for here was geometrical, yet random at the same time. Due to this the stripes of blue are all variable thickness and spacing. The pattern is written out below in both US and UK terminology.

My little niece is absolutely obsessed with dinosaurs. With the theme of dinosaurs, I set out to find any clothing patterns for a 2-3 year old that were adaptable for tailoring. This was when I came across this beautiful pattern by heart hook home. I loved the two tone pattern and I loved the simplicity. In this post I detail the process of adapting this pattern to create a Dinosaur themed Jacket.

The ability to crochet in the car, on the train or your commute requires you to carry some essential items.

The best part is these don't take up too much room!
The inspiration for this lanyard is my adorable little niece Aria. While she is a fully fledged toddler now and no longer uses a pacifier, this design is inspired by her. The pattern is available on my Ravelry store. I am releasing a simplified version of the pattern for free today to accompany the teether lanyard.
What is a better combination for a girls beanie other then rainbows and cupcakes? This pattern makes for the perfect stash buster. You can pretty much use any combination of colours for this pattern.
With the world returning to a state of "normalcy" after COVID-19 there are certain changes that will be sticking around. For example the consistent use of hand sanitiser on pubic transport has become essential for commuters, especially those in the high risk categories like myself. Easy access to hand sanitiser without digging through (and potentially contaminating!) my bag is important. To solve this I have developed this easy clip on hand sanitiser pouch. The pattern has just been released on my Ravelry page and you can buy an add free pattern for the frog version here. To celebrate the release I am sharing the base of the pattern for free on my blog.
