Star stitch marker pattern

I’ve been busy making stitch markers for my #rainbowshawlcal which runs July 6th – October over on my instagram account. I’m having loads of fun with them and here I’m going to share my pattern for this star.

Make a magic loop.
5dc into magic loop, Ss to join.
2dc in each DC around.
*DC, DC 3tr DC* repeat 5 times. Ss to join and fasten off.

Add a twist of wire or a bent paper clip to the top.

That’s it! really easy and quick to make. I made mine with paintbox cotton DC yarn but any cotton yarn would work. Let me know how you get on 😉

Tropical crochet bowl

A while ago I made this free pattern to celebrate 100 instagram followers. Since then I’ve passed 250! Anyway it’s high time that I put this pattern on my blog since I know that not everyone uses ravelry. Here are my tropical bowl instructions (click on link to get the pdf). Happy making.

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. Here is the pattern for my Daisy chain headband.
