1. Cute hoot
Start Helen Ardley’s cute Christopher owl pattern by joining six granny squares into a strip.
Ponchos look incredibly cute on babies and are also really easy to pop over little wriggling limbs. Jackie Carreira’s colourful cape uses six calming colours – have fun choosing your own colour combo.
Make an octopus, a snail and even a platypus with this cute collection of amigurumi toys by Irene Strange.
Karen Wiederhold’s crocheted doilies are a great way to brighten up your coffee table this summer. They’re really easy to complete too!
Jackie Carreira’s gorgeous hot water bottle cosy is a great opportunity to try making bobbles, which are much simpler than they look.
6. Snap happy
Mister Snaps by Irene Strange is mainly worked in four row colour stripes. Little ones will love stuffing him with pencils and taking him to school.
7. Case closed
With its pretty floral details and rainbow shades, Jackie Carreira’s charming hook holder is the ideal way to keep your favourite tools in tip-top condition.
When she’s not writing about knitting and crochet for work, she can be found at home with her needles, hook and a vast yarn stash that threatens to take over her home.
On behalf of Oombawka Design readers and myself I would like to thank Elaine for contacting me to let me know about the new free crochet pattern site : Top Crochet Patterns! and offering to introduce it to my readers. There are so many fantastic patterns available on the Top Crochet Patterns site – many of which I have not seen before – I encourage you to go and take a look at what other patterns are available. There is only a small difference in the terms between UK and US – so use the handy chart included in the post (or PIN it for later!) and before you know it you will be able to crochet in 2 different crochet languages easily!! Just think of all the new crochet patterns you will be able to try!
