1  ❅Snowflake Garland pattern link❅ in Crochet: Completed Projects by lainsie on: November 18, 2011 09:08:18 AM

My youngest son's class at school are studying 'polar lands' as a topic this term and are decorting their classroom with all things snowy and frozen, so i have crocheted up a garland of snowflakes for him to take in.  I used a ball of crochet thread and a 2mm  hook to make this particular one, and maybe because of the fineness of the thread, ended up having to block the flakes and spray on fabric stiffener.

I have written up a quick tutorial for anyone who is interested in having a go - the snowflakes are really quick and easy to make (only 2 rounds each!) - I think i will try another in a heavier yarn too.

3  Cotton Bangles in Crochet: Completed Projects by lainsie on: August 08, 2011 11:41:23 AM

Simple cotton bangles, made by crocheting 2 (or 3) strands of cotton to make it super thick and rigid.  I used a 'puff' stitch to make the bangles a little more 3d - 3 rounds and you're finished for the pink one, double that for the brown one.  Still working on a pattern...

4  Flower Frames in Crochet: Completed Projects by lainsie on: January 27, 2011 03:17:46 AM

I have a set of butterfly prints I wanted to for a while, so thought these little flower frames did the job nicely - I used an old ring shaped bag handle to crochet around, added another round of double crochet and then made the petals around (7 dc into one stitch).

To give the print a bit of protection I cut out a piece of acetate and hot glued it to the frame first.  The second frame is a mini one, same idea as above, but I used an old wooden curtain ring to crochet around - seeing it up on the wall, I think it would look better with a whole group of them, might give a bit more impact?

5  Pretty Picture frame in Crochet: Completed Projects by lainsie on: December 22, 2010 04:08:56 AM

I have been knocking out a few last minute Christmas gifts lately, and I'm pleased with the way these crochet picture frames turned out.  All you need is a plastic ring to crochet around, I used a couple of hoop bag handles, but you could use an old bracelet or anything ring shaped.

I am a bit card/postcard hoarder, so a perfect way to use up favourite prints and pictures.  i glued a circle of acetate to the back of the frame, and then added the print - very addictive, you could knock one of these up on less than an hour!!

6  Cardigan for my mum in Crochet: Completed Projects by lainsie on: December 22, 2010 12:02:12 AM

Finally finished just in time for my mums December birthday - this is the 4th time I have made this cardigan, the pattern is amazing, top down with no seams.  I made this one using  silky grey bamboo tape which has given the cardigan a nice heavy, drapey feel.  Because the pattern consists of a lacy chevron stitch it makes up very quickly using surprisingly little yarn. It's tricky to find wearable crochet clothing, but this pattern is a must to make.

7  Cheery jam Jar Covers ♥Update - have added pattern link♥ in Crochet: Completed Projects by lainsie on: October 24, 2010 07:49:11 AM

A quick and easy way to turn old jam-jars into pretty containers - crochet a circle the diameter of the base of your jam -jar and then continue round in a spiral (don't bother joining rounds) until you have crocheted the height of your jar - I crocheted a frilly edging around the top (sc, hdc,dc,hdc,sc into first stitch, s.s into next all the way round) but you wouldn't have to bother.  A nice way of adding a bit of colour to a corner of a room, you could even use then as tealight holders - Easy Christmas gifts?

8  Chubby Panda bear in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by lainsie on: October 23, 2010 06:15:05 AM

I'm busy crocheting like a mad thing at the moment, trying to make enough things to sell at a Christmas charity sale next month.  I made this cute little Panda this week, and was really pleased to see how well he went together, as I was a little concerned about the large size of the head when I followed the pattern.  His strange proportions add to his cuteness though I think, and I loved the quickness of adding felt details for his face

9  Mummy & baby Deerstalkers in Crochet: Completed Projects by lainsie on: September 15, 2010 06:59:31 AM

I have been experimenting with hats lately and came up with a matching pair of deerstalker hats - both made on the round, I used chunky (worsted) yarn for the adult hat, which made up super quick, and for the baby one, a softer finer yarn using small hook. The ear flaps can be tied on the top, or down and under your chin for extra cosiness!  I made a button hole and added a vintage looking button for the brim.  Now the question is -am I brave enough to wear it walking down for the school run??

10  Ray of Sunshine (with pattern link) in Crochet: Completed Projects by lainsie on: August 02, 2010 09:10:57 AM

Our Scottish summer has been rubbish so far, rain and clouds for the whole of July, so i am cheering myself up by hanging these sun motifs up around the house -an attempt to encourage a nice sunny, warm August!

the motifs were quick and fun to make, using any brightly coloured yarn, these little suns were made in only 2 rounds using a combination of both SC and DC
