Amigurumi Bunnies

I have been working for some time now on this amigurumi bunny pair ! They make the cutest couple; he with his little blue bow tie and she with her pink bow and cheeks!:)

These would definitely make a lovely gift to a newborn baby or a toddler! I used 100% cotton yarn to make them in off-white, pink and blue (Catania is the yarn used in the sample) and a 2.5 mm crochet hook! They work up pretty easily as they are crocheted in one piece, with the ears and arms attached later on!

If you fancy making your own you can get the pattern over at Ravelry, Etsy and Craftsy! The pattern includes instructions and pictures to make your own pair of bunnies!:)

If you decide to make some bunnies make sure to post a photo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! I'd love to see!
Hope you're having a lovely week so far!:)

African Flower Stocking For I Like Crochet

Oh my! Time flies! It's almost Christmas, can you believe it? 

I recently shared this African flower hexagon stocking in the December issue of I Like Crochet! The pattern is really fun and works up pretty quickly, plus it would make the perfect stocking to hang beside the fireplace! I used traditional Christmas colors in white and red (Drops Karisma is the yarn used in the sample)!

You can get the instructions to make your own in the latest issue of I Like Crochet here, which is packed with Christmas crochet projects, from wreaths, ornaments, to cozy scarfs! :)

Wishing you a great start to this new week!
Enjoy the rest of your Monday!

The Urban Stripy Knit Beanie Pattern

At last, everything has come together , photography, the pattern and all the details to present the Urban Stripy Beanie, a knitted slouchy beanie!

I have been knitting a lot lately; of course crochet is still my big and first love but I have to admit that knitting is really exciting and fun as well! 

I used circular knitting needles and a lovely soft superwash yarn in shades of Green  Apple and Silver to knit this beanie! It's a fairly easy design, but really fun to work! I have already worn it a few times and it has become one of my favorites this year!

You can get the pattern on Ravelry, Etsy and Craftsy to make your own beanie! I hope you enjoy making your own and share some photos for me to see!

Enjoy the rest of your day!

The Dream Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

These last weeks have been really crazy! I am currently working on far too many projects: again! Haha! One of these projects includes the Dream Baby Blanket (thank you Jane for the name by the way); this blanket is great for newborns and especially for baby showers! 

I crocheted the blanket with chunky yarn and a 6mm (J/10) crochet hook and a really soft baby yarn in blue, pink and creamy shades! The chunky yarn makes the blanket really cozy and soft! I love the feeling! The blanket consists of granny squares joined together and a granny style border!

You can find the pattern on Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy . The pattern is also suitable for beginners!:)

If you decide to make your own don't hesitate to post a photo on Twitter , Facebook or Instagram. I'd love to see!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
