Crochet Fan Lace Shawl, Wrap, Scarf Pattern

My newest Crochet Fan Lace Shawl/Scarf/Wrap Pattern is a little different from the norm in that it’s worked from the bottom up, which is fabulous when you have a limited amount of a particular yarn & you’re unsure just how far it will go – just start at the bottom & keep going until you run out of yarn.

The crochet fan lace shawl/scarf/wrap pattern works up quickly & can be worked in your choice of yarn & hook size

I used Scheepjeswol Granada 100% 8 ply cotton for the pattern photo item.

  • The pattern includes:
  • the shawl/scarf pattern
  • both UK & US terminology
  • clear stitch drawings & pattern diagrams (charts)
  • step by step instruction for the Clone Bobble tassel

My Mum gave me 2 x 50 gram balls of this yellow & what I can only  guess to be some kind of acrylic mohair…  demanding I make something…. my first thoughts were ‘eeegads…!!’ Really? It’s so very bright & garish… &, well,.. so yellow…. nevertheless I did as I was told & to my surprise it worked up beautifully &  Mum  is super delighted… so it goes to show… you never know until you have a go….

And then, I simply had to have another go with the crochet fan lace shawl/scarf/wrap pattern this time using 4 ply Mini Mochi by Crystal Palace Yarns. Don’t you just love this yarn? Colour way, texture & workability… all of it, gorgeous…

So there you go folks.. a ‘can do’ for beginners & a quickie for the more experience… have lots of fun with this newbie

Sunflower Happiness – a crochet rug (afghan) pattern

I was in need of a bright, happy rug for a special gift – something quick & easy & a little different that I would be proud to give.

The original idea came to me as a traditional sunflower, you know, bright yellow/orange petals, chocolate brown centre, surrounded by a lovely creamy white… Hmmm… it looks OK but not really what I was hoping for… I wanted something a lot more cheerful & so, after much fiddling about, this is the result… Yep.., I’m very happy with it…

This is a nice & easy scrap yarn crochet rug (afghan) ideal for the less experienced.

Each square measures approx 16.5 cm (6 ½”) x 16.5 cm (6 ½”) – make as many squares as you need depending on your project – a little cot cover, a medium TV knee rug or a king size bedspread

Requirements: for the 5 square x 6 square rug I used: scrap yarn from my stash for colours & approx 230 grams 8ply cream acrylic (Panda, Magnum soft) for main colour – Hook size 4.00mm (US G)

Although I’ve given yarn & hook requirements, this is your project & you know how I always like to encourage you to work with your own preferred colours & appropriate hook to make the project your own – enjoy!

  • The pattern includes:
  • afghan square pattern
  • joining squares together & border instructions
  • both UK & US terminology
  • clear stitch drawings & pattern diagrams (charts)

The pattern is available from here or, if you prefer, from Ravelry ~ Etsy ~  Zibbet



Crochet Scallops & Spirals Ebook.

Happy, happy days… the Crochet Scallop & Spiral Ebook is finally finished & ready for sale – it took a while but I feel sure you’re going to enjoy the variety of patterns I’ve included.

If you’re familiar with my work you will know that I really like scallops & particularly love spirals; I incorporate them into my freeform work all the time.

So it comes as no surprise that if there’s one thing that I get asked about, more than anything else, it’s crochet spirals & scallops – how I vary them from pattern to pattern, how I embellish & keeping them interesting.

Hence, I’ve put together this Ebook (17 pages) in the hope that the collection of 7 crochet scallops & 6 crochet spirals will address & answer the many questions you have passed on to me & perhaps even a couple you haven’t thought of yet….

All the patterns are complete in their own right but they also lend themselves beautifully to experimentation & freeform crochet. Spirals are made as separate motifs – Scallop motifs are made separately but I also give instruction for working them directly onto your fabric.

I’d like to encourage everyone to play around with your own ideas, substituting suggested yarns / stitch size / hook size & what ever else you come up with

  • The patterns include:
  • written patterns with both UK & US terminology for each motif
  • pattern diagrams (charts) for each motif
  • clear colour photos of each motif
  • special stitch drawings & instruction
  • a quick bullion tutorial
  • embellishment suggestions
  • Suggested Requirements:
  • assorted hooks (4mm – 4.25mm (US G) – 5mm (US H))
  • assorted 8ply yarn
  • assorted ribbon yarn
  • assorted metallic thread
  • assorted crochet cotton 

you can read my personal thoughts on spirals on this Ideas & Inspiration Page
