Coffee Cup

This is my free pattern for how to make an amigurumi Coffee Cup! It’s the same size as a regular coffee cup and there’s lots of scope for you to decorate it however you want. This pattern is a great introduction to amigurumi techniques and it is suitable for a beginner crocheter.

How to use Idea Pins for your Business

I posted this blog post yesterday as a way to use Story Pins for your business. Well, today Pinterest changed the name to Idea Pins and rolled it out for everyone! So this is my updated blog post. There are lots of new features on Idea Pins that I haven’t tried yet so I may do a Part 2 sometime. In this blog post I will tell you my experience of using Idea Pins for my business so far and why there are benefits to using them.

Flame Ear Warmer

I released the Flame Ear Warmer over a year ago and now it’s available for free on my blog! This ear warmer was inspired by the colours of flames. I used a crochet stitch called spike stitch.

To give the effect of little flames I turned the whole project upside down so that the spike stitches point upwards instead of down.

Geometric Headband

The Geometric Headband is a simple, pretty headband.  This is a free crochet pattern on my blog.  The pattern uses simple crochet stitches in a unique way to make a comfortable headband that isn’t constricting on your head. Perfect for hot, summer days when you want your hair out of your face!

Knitting Books from World War Two

Anne of Green Gables

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” – Anne of Green Gables When I was a child, I read Anne of Green Gables and I remember enjoying it.  I think I was probably sat down in front… Read more Anne of Green Gables

Summer Ravelry Roundup

This post contains links to Ravelry. The Autumn equinox has passed and it’s officially Autumn but there are few signs of the season in the UK. The leaves on most trees are still green and we are experiencing an Indian Summer this week.  So I thought, as I sat in the garden listening to bird… Read more Summer Ravelry Roundup
