What’s the go-to pal for Pokemon GO trainers in need of a real life buddy to take on their Pokejaunts? A cute and cuddly amigurumi plushie, of course. In my quest to catch ’em all, I rounded up three of the best free Pokemon crochet patterns – an Espeon, an Umbreon, a Charmander, and a rotund Jigglypuff.
It seems like an age since EA Games first teased us with their physics-based platformer, Unravel, at E3 last year. However, the release date is now set for 9th February 2016 – just a few weeks away!

I picked up some more Hoooked Zpagetti yarn whilst on my lunch break from work, can you believe I only paid £4.99 each for two balls of 850g (233 yards)?
So, I thought I’d get to work on making some crocheted tubs (or baskets, I you prefer), and here’s the VERY easy crochet pattern:

T-shirt yarn is a fabulous choice for crocheting or knitting containers and tubs for around the house, handbags, gadget cases, or slippers. However, it can be quite expensive to buy, so why not have a go at making it?

Merry Christmas! We’ve had a relaxing festive season thus far, and I’m really enjoying having some extended time off work to spend with the children. I thought I would share some of the crochet projects I worked up for Christmas, so today I am sharing the pattern for a child’s scarf. It’s made of trebles and can be crocheted for any size by adjusting the initial chain length to suit.
Childs Crochet Scarf Pattern
I made this amigurumi caricature doll for a colleagues birthday earlier this year, and it received great comments (especially the pouty lips!). So I thought I’d share the crochet pattern here on the craft blog.
The crochet terms used throughout this pattern are UK, if you want to convert into US crochet terms, please see my crochet abbreviations and conversion guide. This project is worked in rounds.
Since summer took a holiday in England this year, winter has decided to marry autumn in a sneak revenge attack so it’s quite cold here at the moment!
This sudden decrease in temperature has reminded me I need to get on with crocheting some winter hats for all the children in my life – and make a little dent in my yarn stash at the same time.
Misty Autumn morning
The crochet winter hats have moved on from my post back in July, and I now have 3 completed girls beanie hats (all in wonderful monsoon wool), however, I can’t for the life of me find the picture I took of them, or that hats themselves!
We moved house in August, and I started Continue reading
Free Crochet Headband Pattern
I spent a couple of hours this weekend making crochet headbands for the children and thought I’d share the results along with the patterns. I made 3 different headbands for the girls and as I also made one recently for a colleague, I’m including a pattern for that too (which is the first one in this post).
I have written all patterns in British English.
