Knitted Rainbow Colour Wheel Clock
Whilst perusing Poundstretcher the other day I spotted a cheap and cheerful clock. Thinking perhaps that I could “bling” it up a bit I made my rash purchase (£1.99!) and headed home to rummage for inspiration amongst “The Stash”. This is the end result, a Rainbow Colour Wheel Clock. I’m sure you guys will come […]
Noggin 🙂 Super Chunky Hand Knitted Campervan Beanie Bobble Hats
I love super chunky yarn! I loose interest far too quickly if I knit with anything less than Double Knit weight yarn so Super Chunky is a firm favourite. I’ve made up many designs for patterns using Wendy Serenity Super Chunky, a mix of Alpaca, wool and acrylic. Sadly, it is now discontinued but I […]
Campervan Travels Cushion goes supersize!
I’ve been itching to have a go at knitting the Campervan Travels Countryside Cushion in super chunky yarn on big needles, no change to the pattern size just BIG! This is the outcome, knitted in a super chunky yarn on a pair of 10mm needles. I’ve added a simple border and I’m now the happy […]
Party on Girls!
‘Tis the season for partying so Anna-May and Elsa-Beth have cast aside their winter woollies in favour of party dresses, new shoes, bags and of course a wrap so they don’t get completely frozen! This knitting pattern is available FREE throughout December 2016 when you purchase the knitting pattern for the dolls, “Here Come the Girls” […]
Stash busting Pop Art campervan cushion cover
I’m pretty sure most of us can’t resist squirrelling away lots of yarn, even those little bits and bobs that have been rescued from partially created items. It seems such a waste to get rid of them yet they aren’t quite long enough to make into “proper” items. That’s when stash busting patterns are perfect! […]
Here come the Girls – Doll knitting pattern
I have two teenage boys and a husband so, other than the cat, I’m the only female in the house. Though I don’t think of myself as a girly girl, I do have the occasional rebellious inclination to make something which could be construed as “girly”. The “Girls” are my current project! I’m having lots of fun […]
Hug-a-Bug, the crocheted Beetle
Who can resist the classic VW Beetle? My Husband had an orange Beetle as his first car. My eldest son, now 17, wants a Beetle as his first car too! With it’s friendly shape, the VW Beetle was the inspiration for my latest crochet pattern, the Hug-a-Bug. As with most classic cars, he has been […]
Knit your own Campervan
Have you ever wanted to knit your own campervan? I couldn’t resist having a go at knitting a 3D campervan. The campervan is made using double knitting yarn and surrounds a framework of plastic canvas. At 30cm long there is plenty of room in there for a mini teddy or two. Just think of all […]
Crochet your own Campervan
Up until now most of my Campervan projects have been knitted so I thought it was time to give crochet a go. I’ve had the idea of making a 3D model of a Campervan in the back of my mind for a while and crochet seemed like a great way to make something pretty structured. […]
Campervan Hot Water Bottle PDF Knitting Pattern
If you’re quick at knitting there is still just about time to make up one of these Campervan Hot Water Bottle covers as a Christmas Gift. It takes lots of love to make it but only one 50g ball of double knitting yarn (plus some oddments) so it’s very affordable AND very personal! The perfect […]
