Worldwide Knitting in public day 2018 and Free Flower Pattern

Hello, Free Patterns I am slowly adding the free patterns that used to be on the old website onto the new platform but it is taking some time.

I have just added a pattern for this super simple flower.  This is a great crochet flower which could be used as an embellishment on any project such as hats, headbands or bags.

    New sock cast on Half term was a little stressful so I decided to cast on another Rose City Roller sock.  I wanted to test the pattern using 2mm needles and I have my gauge seems much better on a smaller needle. I love this pattern and it really makes cute quick and easy socks.

    Worldwide Knitting in public day 2018

    Over the weekend Mam and I were lucky enough to have a day off and go to Woolaballoo for a special day celebrating Knitting in public day. The shop has a beautiful courtyard and we were able to sit out all day and work on making crochet mandalas.  We followed a pattern by Attic 24 which was easy to follow.  The mandalas were made using Rico Creative Ricorumi DK. These cotton yarns are available in 60 amazing colours and it was so great to see all the mandalas in so many different colours.
