How to pass an hour or three, crochet style

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

Chain 2

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
