One of the ladies who comes to the Wool Haven crochet classes is interested in amigurumi and brought a pattern she purchased from Etsy to show me.
Of course I wanted a shot at it.
These squares have been made in Stylecraft Special DK, the larger 30 cm /12 inch in Spice, the smaller 15 cm / 6 inch in Boysenberry. (It looks pinker in real life)
I’ve done patterns for 2 different ways to do a popcorn stitch and for 2 different sizes. Continue reading “Popcorn Granny Squares”
Another impulse buy from Wool Haven; this time Debbie Bliss Cotton DK Print.
Sometimes a yarn is so nice you buy it without knowing what you want it for. That is how I was when is saw the new yarn cakes stocked at the Wool Haven. It’s so squishy!
This has been worked with Anchor Creativa Fina 100% cotton
Last Saturday was World Wide Knit In Public Day (us crafters do like our acronyms) so I tootled down to Dalgarven Mill in Kilwinning to catch up with some very lovely ladies I haven’t seen in far too long. (It meant I missed the Wool Haven’s first birthday and their WWKIP event – so it would be appreciated if someone could invent either a time machine or cloning device)
This started as a “can you translate the pattern” project although I’m pretty sure the lady who asked would have worked it out the tricky bit by herself in time.
This is the second pattern used in the amigurumi class and was used to introduce the bobble stitch.
