Daisy chain headband crochet pattern

I’m trying out a few different things as I figure out what direction I want to go in. This week I’ve tried writing and publishing a crochet pattern. It’s a quick to make daisy chain headband, perfect for flower girls or dressing up. I started with a pile of these little daisies.IMG_0277

And then stitched them all together to make a lovely headband. The wool I’ve used (Stylecraft special DK acrylic) gives a stretchy result which works well in a headband. IMG_0295

Writing and publishing the pattern was easier than I expected. I published on love crochet I’m hoping to do it again, although it remains to be seen if anyone will actually buy my patterns. I’d love to hear from you if you’ve published your own crochet patterns. Which marketplaces worked for you?

New beginnings

Spring is here and easter is just around the corner and it’s a time of new beginnings in my life too. It’s just over 6 months since I last posted here as I had been busy on a teacher training course. Unfortunately I was just too busy and was not able to continue with the course and have energy left for my family and so I have left the training. This will give me time to explore some other ideas and see where I end up. I hope to also get back to updating this blog regularly!

In the meantime I’ll be restoring some order to my garden (you can see here on the left that it has been neglected) and enjoying a bit of time out to crochet.
