Crochet Love

Hands up if you love cool things to crochet that don't take long to make?

Oh my goodness me too!

What with this being the month that has the Day That Shall Not Be Mentioned in it I have been having a good old play with a couple of  patterns that I've had lying around on Pinterest and in this month's Simply Crochet magazine.

You. Are welcome.

These stuffed hearts from Mamachee are surprisingly easy to make and there are a couple of photos which come in handy for some of the trickier parts. (Note the instructions are in American crochet terminology - you can go here for a US to UK stitch conversion)

I am currently in the middle of making 100 of these one dimensional hearts from The Painted Hinge for a friend who is getting married this year. The title of the blog post is the Easiest Crochet Heart Pattern Ever and I have to agree. Again, it is in US crochet terminology but once you have that cracked these babies come off your hook at a rate of knots.

Finally I made this bad ass brooch, this month's free kit in Simply Crochet magazine (Issue 27 - on sale until 5th February) I have worn it most days at work because I am brilliant. I was a little worried that this would be too complicated but it didn't take that long at all and even though you don't stuff it, it would still look great if you did, making it a great alternative to the Mamachee pattern.


What are you waiting for? Get on it.

  2. Ugh I hate that day too, stupid commercialism :p I keep meaning to try those super easy hearts, I want to make a bunch and yarn bomb somewhere :)

  3. These are gorgeous! Not just useful for *that* day either, I have heart bunting up in my office all year round... Ahem! As I usually say I wish I could crochet, stupid old lady hands!


Go on. Say something. You know you want to...
