Crochet Flower Puff Stitch Pattern

By MyPicot

These puff stitch flowers are so satisfying and look great in a mercerised cotton.

Blanket in Bloom

By Alice by Day

It’s the way that these all come together to make a shawl that I love the most about this one.

Taanvi’s Flower Crochet Motif

By Pink Mambo

You can easily make this with a chunky or lace yarn and it will be beautiful regardless.

Japanese Flower Motif

By Happy In Red

The Japanese Flower was one of my first ever motifs when I relearned to crochet.  I skipped the grannies and went straight to this.  Not very well, obviously!  Esther does a much better job.

Egyptian Star Flower

By MissNeriss

I made this tapestry motif, inspired by a trip to Egypt.

I love mandalas, but I especially love open lacy mandalas.  This one is a fantastic example.

Sophie’s Universe

By Dedri Uys

The Game Changer. If you haven’t made a Sophie you’re missing out on the Trans Siberian of crochet – glorious surprises with each leg of the journey.

And Dedri has worked tirelessly to turn Sophie into a book!  I’m getting my copy in a few weeks when I see Dedri in person (I must tell her), I can’t wait!  You can get your own copy at Wool Warehouse*.

Pinspiration #1

I am a massive fan of Pinterest.  The amount of time I spend there is ridiculous.  Pinterest is now to me what Facebook was a couple of years ago.  I will have a quick browse before I go to bed at night and am wondering what cool projects I can find first thing in the morning.

I especially love the global society we live in.  It means that first thing in the morning I’m being flooded with ideas Americans have been pinning while I’ve been sleeping, and when I get home from work I have the same guilty pleasure courtesy of the Australians.

Here I am going to share some of the coolest Pinterest crochet projects that I have found over the previous week or so.  Thanks to the new Pinterest look and feel, it’s easy to link to the source of the pins which is a wonderful addition to the site.  No more clicking through thirty pins to get to the origin!

My faves for this week:

 

Bitty Flower Hat

This is a hat that I’m biding my time to get stuck into. Aren’t the colours just gorgeous?

 

Granny Stripe Messenger Bag

Granny Stripe Messenger Bag, found on Craftsy. I’m wondering where I can pick up the extra bits and pieces for the handles and snap closure, so I can make something just like this.

 

Roses and Lace scarf

Roses and Lace scarf from Crochet World magazine. I just love the roses. Why aren’t there more hours in the day?

 

Crochet deer head

Crochet Deer Head from ManafkaMina on Etsy. These just make me laugh. I’d love one on my wall. I can just imagine my library with all my crochet trophy heads….

 

Ribbed newsboy hat

Ribbed Newsboy Hat by Posh Patterns on Craftsy. I’ve just bought this patern and am busy making a couple for a friend (I’ll link them when finished). It’s a wonderful pattern, highly recommended.

I’d love it if you took a moment to browse my pins and you’re more than welcome to follow me.  I’m always hunting for more inspiration, so I’ll definitely follow you.
