 Spoke Flower Blanket by The Crochet Fix.This pattern was something I’d wanted to do for a long time so was really happy when I got time to get started.It did start off a bit of a nightmare, nothing to do with the pattern which is extremely well written by the way, no it was me not reading it properly!I got through the first full pattern repeat and all looked fine, it was nice and flat and looked really nice in the colours I’d chosen.So I continued on but it started to pucker at one side of
Who doesn't love Rudolf!Using the Reindeer Ralf rattle pattern which is free on Ravelry from Stip and Haak https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rammelaar-rendiertje-ralfThe pattern is really easy to follow and has photo instructions as well as written ones. I made a Christmas tree decoration by using the basic pattern for the head but not attaching it to the rattle part. I made a tree hanger by making  a loop between the antlers.

Pookie_DoodleI love C J Brady patterns so when I saw this one called Shine On I wanted to make it. Quite often she has special offers where you can buy one get one free and I got Shine On when buying another of her patterns called Plot Twist, I’ll review that in another blog post. Shine On is an infinity type scarf /small cowl crochet in one long piece and joined with a short seam to make it circular. The decorative lace edging gives a lovely drop at the centre front.I loved the lace sectio

Plot Twist. C J Brady pattern review
I couldn’t find the yarn locally but found a lovely 100% cotton yarn by James C Brett. Although it is a DK and not a blend of cotton and alpaca it still feels lovely, soft and silky.The pattern is, as always, well written and easy to follow and can be found on Ravelry or CJ Brady’s Etsy shop. The cross stitch seems tricky at first but stick with it, it’s easy once you get used to it. It feels wrong to be going backwards and I found my fingers didn’t want to obey but it didn’t take long befo
I think this is one of my favourite C.J. Brady patterns, so quick and easy it can be made in a couple of evenings. It is a cowl/infinity scarf which can be made larger around the neck if necessary, instructions in the pattern although I just did the basic pattern instructions and it fits me fine.It has a panel in the centre with patterned edge which comes down to a point at the centre front.I did make a mistake on my first one, on row 41 it gives the row instructions then says repeat twice Cowl Pattern, Crochet Cowl Pattern, Crochet Scarf

Crochet Lamb pattern review
Pookie_DoodleI made this little lamb from the free pattern I found via Ravelry.The pattern is very easy to follow and well set out with clear instructions. I made it in a couple of evenings.I couldn’t get the recommended yarn but did have a ball of Drops Boucle which I thought would be good for the fleece effect.I found the Boucle impossible to crochet with though. I just couldn’t see the stitches and kept missing them and getting holes and mis counted rounds.So I tried holding the yarn al

Fire and Ice Shawl Pattern Review
Pookie_DoodleThis pattern makes a lovely shawl, I used the recommended yarn Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball metallic. "Moonstone" shade. It is beautiful to work with and although described as an aran yarn it is much thinner, works more like a double knit to me. It is cotton and acrylic with added metallic thread. I used a 6mm crochet hook to get the recommended gauge. The pattern is by Marie Segares and is easy to follow, a free version is available on Marie's blog or you can buy a pdf ready made cop
