• Apple Tree Crochet Pattern

    Happy Earth Day! To honour and celebrate Earth Day this year, I thought we’d chat about the three Rs – reduce, reuse, recycle – and how we can apply them to crochet. I’ve also got a fun apple tree crochet pattern for you which is a great example of how to recycle an old item and give it new life. REDUCE Don’t buy more yarn than you need (easier said than done I know!) but this is a great opportunity to do some stash busting. Hang onto those yarn ends. Here are a few ways that you can use them: Make a scrap blanket. This is a perfect use for…

    Easter is almost here, are you ready? I don’t know about you but hot cross buns are my favourite Easter treat.

It’s also a great piece for practicing colour changes and reading crochet charts. *You can purchase an INEXPENSIVE AD-FREE PDF on Etsy HERE. The PDF includes detailed instructions…

  • Mini Carrot Crochet Pattern

    Easter is just around the corner and this mini carrot crochet pattern is such a fun and quick little make. It was one of the patterns that didn’t make the cut for the 12 Days of Crochet Christmas event (while the thought of hanging carrots on the Christmas tree cracks me up, it wasn’t quite the vibe that I was going for). You can use this little carrot for keychains, magnets, brooches, garlands, as an accessory for other amigurumi or for a play kitchen.
