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…

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…

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…

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…

Icicles Baby Hat

I seem to be gravitating towards all things snowflake-y at the moment.  I think it’s a combination of watching Frozen and looking forward to Christmas time. We’re looking forward to the arrival of a new niece in December so I have extra wintery things to crochet! I used blossom stitch for the main portion of…

Remember my Flower Trails Fingerless Gloves?  Well this project is made using the left over single skein I had.  I love making the puff flower stitch with this yarn, so I’ve used it again here – so this is a matching item if you like to match your purse and gloves! I think I’ll be…

Flower Trails Fingerless Gloves

I’m very blessed to have a husband who remembers our wedding anniversary.  If it wasn’t for him reminding me I think I’d forget every year!  This year is 7 years for us.  A great year because traditionally the gift given is wool… and this is what he chose for me! A lovely textured alpaca yarn…

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…

Diamond Trellis Stitch Video Tutorial

I got an exciting new toy this week!  I’ve been wanting to get a new camera for a while.  It’s always a bit of a struggle using my old compact camera to get good photos of my projects, especially when it’s cloudy outside.  So I finally convinced my husband that now was the time to…

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…
