You can crochet this! Pattern translation

This outstanding pattern is ALL double crochet! And it’s much easier than you think! My fourteen year old recently took on the challenge of making a bunny, so if she can do that, you can make this YORKIE from Crochet Parfait!!!

Now, before you say “Nooooo, I can’t make that!”, bear this in mind: when my daughters asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day less than 2 years ago, I randomly said “a crochet hook”. I was half joking, half wanting to have a go because I’d never done it before. I’m not the least bit crafty and really don’t have a love for knitting. Now look at me – I can’t go a day without crocheting something, this blog is becoming a much-loved job and people actually pay me a bit of money for my creations! Whodathunkit!?

The lesson that I learned here is an old cliche, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true: You don’t know until you try!

The beautiful tutorial for this cutepie at Crochet Parfait is filled with easy instructions and loads of photos. Just imagine how you will feel when you’ve finished!

You can do it!

Easy Peasy beanie hats – pattern translation

The designer of these patterns calls them “easy peasy” and they really are! They’re all made with UK triple crochet. I made a quick yellow one last night (pikapi!) while I was watching the TV. They use a “Magic Ring” to start with. Check out the next post if you don’t know how to do that!
