2015/1 – gecko plushie

Say good-bye to January Blues with this cute, colourful project, courtesy of Raphael Blumenbunt.

Lots of repetition makes this an easyish pattern, with lots of customisation options. I love the colours they’ve used here – nice and bright and not wintery at all! 🙂 plus, if you make the distance between the front legs and the back legs larger, you get an awesome kids’ scarf!

Here you go…

2014/88 – make a bunny!

This one is an absolutely adorable pattern – for a stuffed bunny!

Unfortunately what you see in the image to the right is all that is available on the website, no tutorial or description of the size of the panel you need to make etc.

Have a go, and post in the comments below what dimensions and hooks you used and maybe include a picture 🙂

2014/87 – snowman greetings card

This one is a bit more Christmassy, and really really easy! J Peggy Taylor has designed a gorgeous greetings card with a snowman on it. I think it looks really cute.

You could add in your own backgrounds, or keep it really simple like she has. Lots of customisation options, and pretty quick!

Find out how she did it via the link below.

2014/86 – Christmas stockings by Grace@WhileWalkingMyDogs

So following on from our previous share-post, the second competition winner is Grace of WhileWalkingMyDogs.

She shared with us her 30 Christmas ornaments, and my favourite is this one – these gorgeous Christmas stockings. I know we’ve posted some a pattern for stockings already, but I really like Grace’s interpretation. It’s so simple and effective and traditional. I really recommend taking a look!

I love the tinsely top and the use of the Christmas button to glam it up a bit. A really simple and easy idea which is so versatile with just some mixing and matching of colours. You could add all sorts of buttons, beads, sequins, shiny yarn for the toes/heel…

2014/85 – Fraggle amigurumi pattern by competition winner, epicyarns!

So a few weeks ago we posted a competition to get your blog shared, here on UK Crochet Patterns. I really liked doing this and seeing what you guys have been making so will probably do this again sometime.

Anyway, the first one I want to share is an amigurumi pattern shared by epicyarns, who were first to respond to our original competition post. Look at this Fraggle pattern! Aren’t they gorgeous?!

Fans of Fraggle Rock are really going to enjoy this. Take a look!

2014/84 – mittens!

Here’s a practical one for you – mittens! Oombawka design’s pattern for mittens looks easy enough though might take a little while (it comes in multiple parts).

But don’t they look great? And so warm too. Plus the cuff is narrower and the hand so it’s comfy, won’t slip off or let the cold in.

Go ahead and take a look, but remember it’s in USA terms so check our translation guide.
