Pinwheel cushion

Wow I'm just loving this new pattern, isn't it fabulous? The first 9 rows set the pattern then its quite easy to follow without the need for a pattern. It looks so cool in mustard and I plan to make more.

You can find the pattern on Etsy under Ivy and Mabel (Angie)

And some of my mustard makes on my Instagram account

Love the pattern of the pinwheel cushion and such a beautiful colour.
Very clever design, a bit like an optical illusion :)

Hello. I just found your lovely blog and I've been reading some of your posts. I only just learnt to crochet this summer and I have been looking for crochet blogs to add to my reading list. I made a granny square blanket as my learning to crochet project and I'm absolutely hooked on crochet now! I have a lot of learning to do as granny crochet is all I can do at the moment. I'm looking forward to following your blog. Regards Jane :)

cables without the cables (Birch Trees scarf)

Earlier this year I came across this lovely Birch Trees Scarf knitting pattern over at Hand Knitted Things. Its one of those patterns that you just have to try because its so pretty and very practical and looks far more intricate and complicated than the 4 row pattern suggests. I like to call it cables without the cables, such a clever pattern thank you Julia Marsh.


 I'm knitting mine on vintage no. 7 needles (kindly given to me by my mother-in-law) and using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino charcoal out of my yarn stash that was meant to be for Ian's scarf! shh don't tell him! I use DB yarn all the time, picking up bargains in John Lewis and eBay but its the first time I've knitted with Cashmerino, and it isn't going to be the last. It gives you great stitch definition and the softest yarn ever, I love it. So here is my scarf in progress. It has been sitting in my car waiting to be loved again after I accidentally knitted the moss stitch border wrong. I know how can you ge…

traffic jam (crochet simple granny triangle shawl)

I got stuck in the office on Monday night, not the best of situations but this estate I work on does get congested frequently and not helped by lorries breaking down blocking one lane of two. Anyway all was not lost because I'd had a new yarn delivery that morning and I needed an excuse to stop and crochet. And this is how this granny shawl got its name. Isn't it gorgeous? It's crochet in the new Sirdar Colourwheel DK yarn. On first inspection I wasn't that taken with it, but now I love it. No more colour changes, yipee.

If you'd like to know how to make this here is the Simple Granny Triangle pattern I'm using or this link. Happy crocheting!


free knitting pattern - baby cardigan Twilleys Freedom Sincere DK

I have been looking for a pattern for a lady at my hairdressers so I've ordered the yarn today. I haven't knitted any baby things since Jack was a baby (many years ago and makes me sound old!) You can find the baby cardigan knitting pattern courtesy of Deramores.
