• Shark Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern

    It’s Shark Week! I know I’m a little late to the party but I couldn’t resist making something fun for it and this Shark Wall Hanging fit the bill perfectly. I mean, what’s not to love about that goofy face? The design is pretty simple but it does require some sewing and colour changing experience. How you deal with the ends is completely up to you. My preferred method is to knot and tie them, nothing fancy here. Before we get stuck into the pattern let’s get real for a moment and talk about fringe… you either love it or you hate it and unfortunately I hate it, with a…

  • Invisible Decrease for Amigurumi

    Take your amigurumi to the next level with the invisible decrease! Say goodbye to unsightly holes, bumps and ugly stitches.

INVISIBLE DECREASE Insert hook in the front loop of the next 2 stitches (3 loops on hook). Yarn over and pull through first 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook). Yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.…
