New Pattern: Target Garland

target garlandThis is such a brilliant pattern for summer! Mine hangs along the roof line of the wood shed and made in wool, it seems to cope well  whatever  the weather (in fact it’s beginning to felt a little and looks even better than it did 3 months ago!)

It’s a proper “stashbuster”, of course you could choose specific yarns to complement the theme of a summer party (think out door weddings, school fetes or upmarket barbeques), but I think part of its charm is the simplicity.

If your kids have been asking you to teach them to crochet, this is just what you need, after this amigurumi will be a breeze and they’ll be tackling all kinds of projects. I know from experience, it’s a great portable project too, ideal for bus or train journeys as the little circles are so portable and it fits in the smallest handbag.

You can find the pattern on Etsy and Ravelry for the bargain price of £2. All you need is a hook and a ball of yarn and you’ll be on your way. If you are crochet beginner, these little garlands make fabulous gifts, I often make this (or a variation) as baby shower or new born gifts for distant friends or relatives as it is easy to post and you can’t get the size wrong.

#crochet #crochetgirlgang #crochetconcupiscence #crochetaddict #crochetgifts #freepattern #bakingandmaking Finally some crochet! Five years ago I designed these little bags for the  wool shop where I worked I  still make them for wrapping presents - so much nicer (& more sustainable) than paper or plastic.  Link in my profile for details & free pattern.

I've hung this on my kitchen wall, rather pleased with this simple print of 3 plants from my garden (the middle one is from the tiny christmas tree we were given in December at Delamere Forest)
