Sometimes, when sitting, it’s good to have a hobby.
That’s my theory anyway. Thanks to the internet and to the wide variety of occasions covered by pinterest, I’ve managed to create some cute little pieces to adorn our home.
Bear requested a voodoo doll (for halloween I’m assuming) and the daisies for a supercalifragilistic costume (my very own pattern on this one…look at me getting all fancy with my crochet), Lil D inspired the mermaid (Mollie Makes pattern), the donut is all me, and the flowers are for a special occasion in the not too distant future for a good friend.
I’m open for suggestions on what comes next. I’ve plenty of Christmas ideas, but not quite mentally prepared to start that count down.
Daisy crochet pattern (it worked for me, but I’m not an expert at patterns, I hope it makes sense to others!)
In yellow wool:
Chain 4 and slip stitch into the 1st chain to create a ring
Half treble crochet into the ring, 7 times
Slip stitch in the starting 2 chain, and fasten off
In white wool:
*Chain 5 in an outer stitch on yellow ring
Double crochet in 2nd stitch from needle
half treble crochet in 3rd stitch from needle
treble crochet in next 2 chain stitches
slip stitch into original stitch
slip stitch into next stitch on ring
repeat from * until you have filled the ring with petals
Still love pompoms.
These little balls of joy are getting trimmed and then going up on my wall.
Love the cozy texture and colour they give a room.
Plus making them added thousands of extra steps to my fitbit total (^-^)
