2014/80 – in the spirit of Christmas…more stockings! (Miniature ones this time)

I’ve come to realise that I LOVE Petals to Picots. They’re constantly posting stuff I love. Take these stockings for example.

Absolutely freakin’ adorable. Super easy, very cute, and massive scope for customisation. Different accessories, different colours, different fluff, add some shiny bauble-esque beads (or actual baubles?!), or just coloured buttons, the possibilities are endless. These would look great hanging from the tree stuffed with sweets ;)

In fact if you guys make these then send us a picture and we’ll promote your blog, as part of our new ongoing competition for featuring blog posts.

Also don’t forget our free chocolate giveaway, courtesy of Serenata Flowers!

Happy crafting!

FREE PATTERN: Reindeer

Originally posted on drawn and hooked:

Reindeer_Amigurumi_1

I’m pleased to finally present to you my reindeer pattern! He was inspired by Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. :)

I first started working on this pattern almost 2 years ago when I first started crocheting amigurumi. I sketched up his design on the back of a receipt and scribbled the pattern messily on the back of scrap paper as I fumbled through the stitches to make up a prototype. Whilst I finished my prototype, it never saw this blog as I soon realised I had crocheted him inside out (this was before I knew about the “right” and “wrong” side of crochet). Time passed and I questioned if I had even written out the pattern correctly. But fast forward to a few weeks ago when I finally sat down recently with my scraps of paper and tested the pattern – and here we have my reindeer!

I hope you…

This cowl was so easy and only takes a couple hours to crochet.

It’s worked up with a bulky yarn and large hook, that gives it a nice loose pattern that drapes well and is nice and warm.

The Afterthought Heel

“Afterthought heels”. Genius.

Socks look funny without feet. At least mine do.

Anyhow, I finished a pair of socks with afterthought heels. They turned out really nice and supposedly they are very comfortable (according to a 10-year-old).

Plus, Regia’s self striping sock yarn is beautiful to work with!
