Cute Bunny

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.

Crochet – Bumblebee/Butterfly rattle

I found images of these totally cute crochet butterfly (rattle)…

I wanted to make some but I could not find a pattern for them… I looked and searched… but no luck!

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

at this point I was still working on the pattern as there are 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 bug/butterfly/bumblebee is not big but has the perfect size for a little one.

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

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

Crochet 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.

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.

Crochet 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 but can be found on Twinkie Chan’s blog.
