Horizon Shawl - Textured Crochet Pattern by Make My Day Creative

Horizon Shawl

I’ve had this one under wraps (haha) for ages and ages, so it’s great to finally be able to share it with you! I was commissioned by Yarnbox to design for their October 2016 yarn collection, which was a lovely way for me to be able to try this yarn. I have not worked much…

Strata Cowl - free crochet pattern by Make My Day Creative - Tunisian Crochet

Strata Cowl

This is my first proper make using Tunisian crochet.  It’s really a stitch sampler cowl because I wanted to try out lots of stitches, but was a bit fed up with swatches so I just experimented on a slightly larger scale hoping to make something wearable! I was intrigued to try Tunisian in the round…

Colour Pool Cowl - Free Crochet Pattern from Make My Day Creative specifically for short colour variegated yarn

Colour Pool Cowl

If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook you’ll have spotted me working with this amazing hand dyed yarn.  Of course it is one of those skeins that I fell in love with and had to buy even though I didn’t *technically* need more yarn. I do love colour and so variegated yarns are…

Mediterranean Lace Shawl

I’m so pleased to have this pattern ready to share with you at last!  I’m continuing the theme of ocean inspired shawls (click through for Atlantic Lace and Pacific Rim shawls) and, as I began this one while on a plane to Morocco I have called it Mediterranean Lace. I know that I have been…

Crochet Rope Basket 3 years later - free pattern by Make My Day Creative

Crochet Rope Basket Update

When I first made this crochet rope basket back in June 2013 I really wasn’t expecting to get much of reaction.  To me it was just something I made for a specific space and use.  However, it turns out that people like baskets a lot more than I thought – this is easily my most…

Arrow Tails Shawl - A free crochet pattern from Make My Day Creative

Arrow Tails Shawl

I’m really excited about this design and so I hope you like it as much as I do!  I had a bit of a delay in getting it to you, having run out of yarn for the fringing with only 2” to go…  It’s worth the wait though, as this shawl is so lovely and…

Bubble Wrap Cowl - a free crochet Pattern from Make My Day Creative

Bubble Wrap Crochet Cowl

  This cowl was one of my husband’s Christmas gifts so I have been waiting to share it for a while.  When I was making the plaid cowl for my brother I fell a bit in love with this yarn.  Not a surprise because I am a fan of chainette construction yarns.  (Read more about…

Is it too late to wish you all a Happy New Year?  I hope not! Somehow time seems to have gotten away from me more than usual recently.  This post was actually intended as a pre-Christmas bonus post, but I guess it’s better late than never!  On that subject – I do hope you all…

Linen Stitch Cowl Mk 2

I have been wearing this Linen Stitch Cowl and Linen Stitch Gloves set a lot so far this winter.  It seems to go with a lot of things in my wardrobe and is snuggly and comfy to wear.  I’ve been getting annoyed when the weather is too warm to wear them! I really loved the…

Simple Origami Baubles - free crochet pattern with video from Make My Day Creative

Christmas Crochet

Isn’t it great how so many Christmas projects lend themselves to stash busting?  I think it’s because Christmas items tend to be smaller and involve using lots of colour.  It’s great because we can keep crocheting away even though we are spending on all those Christmas gifts (which we aren’t making) and festive food and…

Plaid Cowl - A super easy free crochet pattern from Make My Day Creative

Plaid Cowl

I’m glad to be back in blog land after a few weeks away on holiday – more on this later! I’ve seen a few plaid or tartan effect blankets done using this technique and I really like the effect.  This is a great way to try it out and make a great guy gift at…

Linen Stitch Gloves and Cowl set - Free crochet patterns from Make My Day Creative

Linen Stitch Fingerless Gloves

I had quite a bit of left over yarn from making my Linen Stitch Cowl so it clearly was meant to be a matching set! These fingerless gloves are made in the round starting with the arm and increasing over the hand before splitting for the thumb and finger holes. You can adjust the pattern…

Linen Stitch Cowl - a free crochet pattern from Make My Day Creative - so easy, no ends!

Linen Stitch Cowl

I have had these two yarns in my stash for a while.  I wanted to use them together but have spent a while thinking it through because the red and white/cream colour combination can look very Christmassy.  Although I love Christmas, I wanted whatever I made to be wearable the rest of the year! I…
