    Child’s cat hat & wristwarmers

    After making the sparkly cat hat, wristwarmer & cowl set I decided to make  smaller version for my daughter to use up the last bits of yarn. They are somewhere in her bedroom which is why there is no picture.

    Simple Crochet Christmas Bauble

    This bauble pattern can be adapted in a number of ways, plain, sparkly, striped and with a variety of adornments. I’ve worked this in a DK acrylic (as that’s what I had to hand) but it could be made with most yarns, each giving a different effect.

    Christmas Stocking

    I’ve done these in three sizes; standard, mini & large. And they all work on the same principle. They re good for bunting as well as for putting gifts in

    Crocheted Snowflake 1

    I actually made a pile of these a few years ago to use up some 4ply to make bunting but no matter how I strung them I wasn’t happy. So this year I plan to use them to decorate my Christmas Cards. The larger of the two in the image was worked in DK and measures 13 cm (5 inches) in diameter, the smaller is in 4 ply and is 8 cm (3 inches) across.

    Amigurumi Sloth

    I don’t know about other crafters but I find I don’t often have to go looking for projects, I’m lucky enough to have friends who show me ones they think I might find interesting or quirky.

      One of the ladies who comes to the Wool Haven crochet classes is interested in amigurumi and brought a pattern she purchased from Etsy to show me. Of course I wanted a shot at it.

    Popcorn Granny Squares

    These squares have been made in Stylecraft Special DK, the larger 30 cm /12 inch in Spice, the smaller 15 cm / 6 inch in Boysenberry. (It looks pinker in real life) I’ve done patterns for 2 different ways to do a popcorn stitch and for 2 different sizes.
