A huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone who supported me throughout 2020.
2020, what a shocker! My hope is that everyone fared well through lockdowns & isolation. I know this isn’t the case for many & my sincere condolences go to you if you’ve lost family & friends in this pandemic.
2021 is just around the corner & not a moment too soon. It’s going to be Awesome! Nothing else will do after the frightful year we’ve had. Stay well, stay safe & be happy. We have so much to be grateful for.
Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas & every happiness for the new year… cheers Renate

Hi everyone, how fast has this year galloped ahead? It’s already October, with the holiday season just around the corner.With that in mind, I’m offering a classic ‘Corner 2 Corner’ crochet rug (afghan) pattern as a free download in time for gift giving.
The pattern includes:
both written & diagram (chart) form
both UK & US terminology
This is an easy pattern so even beginners can have a go. Gauge isn’t important, neither is your choice of yarn; just use an appropriate hook for your chosen ply.
Use up your scrap yarn stash, change colours as you like, work with variegated yarns. The choice is endless
This is a free pattern, it begins in a corner & worked diagonally, increasing on each row until your desired size, then decreased down to the opposite corner; therefore you are able to make your rug (afghan) any size you want: from a small cot blanket to a bedspread.
Just be aware that you’ll need to divide your yarn in half; one half for the increase & the other half for decrease. And, if you plan a border, you will require additional yarn for that; I personally don’t think this rug (afghan) needs a border but of course, it’s up to you, this is your project have fun with it.
From the beginning, when I first became interested in freeform crochet, Coral forms & textures became inescapable inspiration.
The 4th Tea Cosy, of a number I’ve been working on these past months. This is the last one of the collection. I hope you’ve enjoyed these posts & they’ve inspired you with ideas to experiment & have a go too.
