Crochet – Hækle -Heklað

Octopus

How cute is this one… made it for the daughter of my husbands cousin.

The pattern I found here: https://lefthandedcrocheter.com/2016/08/16/octopus-frenzy/

and the flower I don’t remember, found some flower via google and picked one.

Bumblebee/Butterfly rattle

I found images of some totally cute crochet butterfly (rattle)… and free patterns that are similar on hobbii.dk / hobbii.com and amigurumi.today (and these ones in danish opskrift på hæklede insekter/bricksite.com), that I used as inspiration to do the pattern.

When I found the images, I wanted to make some but I could not find the pattern for them… I looked and searched… but no luck (at the time)!

So I had to figure out the pattern myself.. it went ok… if I say so myself…

The original pattern/image that I found is much cuter and I just couldn’t figure out how to make it as cute. My version is just a sad little thing compared to the pattern I wanted. But luckily the baby’s that got them don’t care.

Here bellow you can see that at this point I was still working on the pattern as there were some details I did not think were good enough… And the mouth I need to learn to do better!

I will get there…

This is the second version of the pattern and I like it so far, the butterfly/bumblebee is not big but has the perfect size for a very little one.

You can find the pattern, along with other free patterns, in English in the free pattern section.

Later I found the original pattern for sale here.

GIRL’S COAT BY MAJOVEL

I found this TOTALLY cute coat on YouTube and as my husbands cousin just had a baby earlier this year, I had to make this adorable coat!

I had of course make some adjustments as I had different yarn and the smallest size was for a 1 year old.

The written pattern is here: https://www.majovelcrochet.com/2018/09/pattern-crochet-girls-coat-by-majovel.html

And the Youtube video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV14X4G2Tuw&feature=youtu.be

Star Rattle

Pillow – c2c crochet

I made this pillow for one of my sons, the pillow has 2 different sides and is crochet in c2c. Using my favourite acrylic yarn scheepjes color crafter.

I just found a youtube video on how to do this and went to work.

I will say it was fairly easy to learn, took a few tries to get the hang of it but luckily I did not get far each time but when I had the concept down it was rather easy to do.

Using the image I found with the pumpkin and then I made the other one inspired by images I found.

For this one I used a drawing program on the internet (do not remember what I used), something that was suggested on some website with info about how to do c2c crochet.
This image I found on the internet making small alterations to make it fit my project and look the way my son wanted.

Blanket – Pumkin

Using my favourite acrylic yarn scheepjes color crafter.

I made this doing granny squares, the insane work that went into assembly got me to the point of ‘never will I ever, do this again’!

The picture I found on the internet and altered it a little to fit what my son wanted and resize so I could make this.

Baby Groot

I made this Baby Groot for my boys…

I found this pattern for free, had to make it… the pot, they are in, I made myself.

I do not even remember what yarn I used… Pretty sure it was just some Drops cotton yarn with some Hobbii cotton yarn I used and some leftover cotton yarn that I had.

The pattern I found via Ravelry, can be found on Twinkie Chan’s blog.

Kay Bojesen bird

I have been doing some more work but not sharing it here… so… here goes…

KAY BOJESEN BIRD (SANGFUGL)

I like the bird more than the Monkey but still have only made these as gifts, so far… and on the plus side, it is much easier and faster to make.

I chose to add wire so that it was possible to alter the legs and the position of the head if one wanted.

Bending the wire and tugging it inside the head similar to the legs.

The recipe I used is in danish: http://masjasblog.dk/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/haeklet-kay-bojesen-sangfugl-.pdf
