Crochet – Hækle -Heklað

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

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.
