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…

Mediterranean Lace Shawl - Free Crochet Pattern from Make My Day Creative

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…

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…

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…

Moroccan Hexagon Motif - Free Crochet Pattern by Make My Day Creative - use this to make a cushion or blanket or scarf

Moroccan Motif Cushion

Do you find Arabic geometry as interesting as I do?  It fascinates me how a minor change in a repeat pattern can give a whole different look and feel to the resulting effect. The repeats of Moroccan style tiles have an affinity with crochet motifs and I’ve been wondering if I could recreate the effect…

Atlantic Lace Shawl 161

Atlantic Lace Shawl

Happy New Year to you all!  After all that hard work crafting for Christmas, why not treat yourself to making one of my latest crochet patterns? I’ve named this shawl “Atlantic” because I crocheted the majority of it whilst on the plane over this ocean during my recent trip to North America.  I think it’s…

Free crochet scarf patterns for autumn from makemydaycreative.com

Scarf and Cowl Patterns

As you may remember from my earlier post on bracelet patterns, I’m currently going through my old posts and adding pdf downloads to my patterns (in both US and UK crochet terms). As the weather seems to have turned chilly recently, I thought I’d move on to these scarf patterns instead.  And I included the…

Multiplicity Shawl by Make My Day Creative - Why not commission a similar pattern?

Multiplicity Buttoned Shawl

I’m so excited to share this latest pattern with you all! I love it for its versatility – and possibly even more than my shooting stars cowl… It’s called multiplicity because there are so many ways to wear it.  So far I have counted about 10!  The other awesome thing is that this can easily…

Ways to wear it 2

Summer Sprigs Lace Scarf

I have wanted to try crocheting with some lace weight yarn for a while, and since it is nearly summer and I found a single ball of Rowan fine lace yarn in the sale bin I thought I’d go for it. I didn’t think working in lace weight would really be much different to working…

Shooting Stars Cowl - a Free Crochet Pattern by Make My Day Creative

Shooting Stars Cowl

This project is finally finished after having restarted it several times.  I am really happy with the result though so it was worth persevering!  The final pattern is actually very simple and quick to work up thanks to rows of broomstick lace. I am in love with this beautiful yarn which I treated myself to back…

2013: Your Projects

Christmas letters come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.  Some are funny, some are long winded, some contain lists of achievements that make you wonder if anyone in that family knows how to have fun.  I’ve never written one, because I’m fairly certain it wouldn’t fall into the “funny” category, and as I’m no…

Butterfly scarf crochet pattern

Butterfly Scarf

Those of you who “like” my page on facebook will know that last week I had the misfortune of fracturing my elbow.  (It was a bike/ice/corner combination of events resulting in me now needing to wear a sling for 4-6 weeks.) So I haven’t been able to do much crafting recently! :( Fortunately I had…

Love a matching set! :)

Easy Textured Cowl

As promised, here is the matching Cowl to my Easy Textured Fingerless Gloves, which I posted last week. Once I had decided what to do with this yarn this set worked up nice and quickly, and are keeping me lovely and warm this November.  I’m actually wearing them indoors to save putting on the heating…

A themed gift

Diamond Scarves

I mentioned in an earlier post about my grandparents upcoming diamond wedding celebrations.  Not being able to afford a gift of real diamonds, I’ve made diamond themed scarves instead! The heather coloured one is for my Nanny (who my shop is named after).  I used this diamond trails pattern, but made it longer and repeated…
