2014/65 – lots of earwarmers!

In preparation for winter (which is practically here already, if you live in the Northern UK like me),  I thought you might like a few patterns for ear warmers. Tamara Kelly at Moogly has assembled a collection of 10 different patterns which all look pretty easy.

There are lots of different styles too, so no matter your preference, there’s something for everyone. Plus some of these would look great with the flower or heart embellishments (that we’ve posted in the past) sewn on top.

2014/65 – baseball coaster

While looking at everything pinterest has to offer, I stumbled across this really cool pattern (by Katie Cooks and Crafts) for a coaster that looks like a baseball!

It also occurred to me that if you scale this pattern down, you could adapt it into anything, like clothing embellishments, buttons, badges or pins. Of course it looks great as a coaster too!

Take a look but remember that this is in US terms so don’t forget to check our stitch translation guide before getting started.

This weeks post will be on a variety of topics covering some mistakes that new crocheter’s often make. Needless to say this post will be a little long. To help minimize the size of the post the first four mistakes I have already covered in earlier posts so I just added the link next to each of them for easy access. I also cannot get into as much detail with each one as I would…
