Coastal Fog Chunky Cardigan - Giveaway + Crochet Pattern


How many of you are always looking for cosy blankets, cardigans and fluffy socks to protect you from the cold and keep you warm? *raises hand*
Since I can remember I've always felt the cold much more strongly than anyone else around me, which isn't that fun when you're in the middle of winter and feel like your itty bitty toes are about to freeze off!

To combat the cold this past Winter I readily armed myself with a crochet hook and extra chunky yarn. Within moments I had a "light bulb" moment and realised that the perfect way to stay nice and toasty would be by snuggling inside an oversized cardigan. With this thought in mind, I excitedly turned on my creative juices and designed this cuddly Coastal Fog Chunky Cardigan!

During Winter as strolls along the ocean turn brisk and foggy, and the weather rapidly turns cooler, having a cosy (and might I add, beautifully textured) cardigan on hand would not only be practical, but also a stylish accessory to wear!.. For all the cardigan lovers out there, it's your lucky day as I've just added the pattern for this design to my Craftsy and Etsy Shop

Love crocheting chunky accessories as much as I do? Then be sure to give this chunky Wisteria Vine Scarf a whirl on your hook, or even try crocheting my Popcorn Tassel Scarf!

Candy Cane Christmas Bauble - Free Crochet Pattern


This past Saturday my family gathered around the Christmas tree, ornaments in hand, and eagerly started decorating our tree from top to bottom. Carols were playing in the background, which made the proceeding even more festive and enjoyable!

Christmas is my favourite time of year, so of course I'm going to incorporate my love of all things merry into my crochet, which is exactly how these Candy Cane Baubles came to be!
I've had this idea for quite some time now, but it wasn't until I spotted Sirdar's bright red and pure white Cotton DK yarn that I knew I had found the perfect pair of colours to replicate candy canes.

Gingerbread Man Baby Booties - Free Crochet Pattern


Back when I was a tiny tot I would always end up covered in flour from head to toe as my family baked a bunch of Christmas gingerbread cookies! 
This has been a tradition since I can't remember when, so till this day I still get outrageously excited when I get to put on my apron, grab my cookie cutters out of the cupboard and bake an array of differently shaped cookies... I can't wait for the day when I'll be able to pass on this special memory to my own children (even if they make a catastrophic mess like I always did)!

Christmas is still a few weeks away, but I couldn't wait any long to get my hands into some dough, which is why I'm planning to bake some cookies in a couple of days time!

In an attempt to behave and not start baking too early, I ended up quickly grabbing some Paintbox Yarn skeins in warm fudge tones and rosy reds out of my stash. But as you can see, my cookie obsession flowed over into my crochet which is how I came up with this darling (and scrumptious pair) of gingerbread man baby booties!

With the festive season in full swing, be sure to crochet some adorable Baubles or a sweet pair of Santa Claus Baby Booties!
