A Twist on Tartan

We have been pretty busy over the past few weeks creating some new patterns. This is my latest blanket design, A Twist on Tartan.  I really enjoy making these, it is quick to do and they look very effective.

I have also done a video to show how to crochet the twisted fringe.

Around June I always start thinking about new designs for Christmas. I have decided to create a Christmas doll this year. The pattern will be available soon...

How to crochet videos


I had a stall at a local craft fair at the weekend. It was a lovely day but I had so many people saying they would love to learn to crochet.

I have decided to do some simple how to videos.  I have just started with the basics but will progress to more advanced crochet techniques.

How to make a slip knot...

Very important we need to know how to get started.

How to crochet a chain stitch...

How to crochet a double crochet...

Is there any stitch you would like to know how to do? Let me know and I will try to make a video of how to do it.

Happy crocheting,

New pattern tag baby blanket

I have just put a new pdf pattern onto my Etsy shop...Tag Blanket 

This is a textured blanket approx. 30cm square. You can add as many tags along the side of the blanket as you want.

I used double knitting yarn, the stripy blanket is Stylecraft Merry go round which is really effective.

There is a choice of eight different tags that you can add to your blanket.

Happy Crocheting, Alison
