Mary Jane Crochet Slippers Pattern

Hi Everyone!

I’ve recently been making a few items to keep my feet warm. I had some wool yarn around that I decided to use to make some Mary Jane crochet slippers. This pattern is another testing pattern that I just used my own feet to measure against. If you have larger or smaller feet you can adjust the pattern to make them fit!

DSC02914DSC02919

Note: My feet are about a Size 5.5/6 North American so you can increase or decrease after or before Round 5 to make a wider and narrower sock. For a longer or shorter sock you would do more or less rounds of Rounds 19 – 44.

I think these socks turned out well and would be perfect for these upcoming colder months.

Crochet Collar Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Today’s post will be a pattern I used to create a collar that can add a little change to your outfits. I used the pattern from Nicole’s Mindless One Skein Scarf and adjusted it so I could make it into a collar. The pattern is super simple and looks really pretty. I had made the scarf previously and liked the way it looked so decided to use the pattern for a collar.

PA292693.jpg

Here is the pattern:

Materials
5.00 mm (H) Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn
Yarn Needle
Scissors

Pattern
Nicole’s pattern says to chain in multiples of 3 then add 4 more chains to that. For this headband I chained 76 times (72+4) for a tight, but slightly loose fit. You can adjust the number of chains for the right size for your head. Once you figure out the number of chains you need, then you will follow Nicole’s pattern and do Row 2 from the pattern 2 times after completing Row 1!

That’s it! Easy peasy! You can choose any time of button you want for the front and sew the ends of the piece together with the button or use a smaller button so that you can use one of the holes from the finished collar as the button hole.

Enjoy making many of these for yourself or to give away!

“Chummy” from Call the Midwife Amigurumi Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Today I want to share with you Amy’s amigurumi pattern for Chummy from Call the Midwife! She uses cotton yarn to make this doll and it was really easy to work with. I usually use acrylic yarn to make amigurumis, but the cotton yarn was really smooth and the doll was worked up quickly. I used Bernat’s Handcrafters Cotton Yarn for this project. For the glasses I used some metal wire and my fingers to create the shape. I would recommend using thicker wire for the glasses since it is not that obvious with the thin wire I used.

Here are some pictures of this project:

Isn’t she adorable? I really love Chummy from the show and making her was a lot of fun. Amy’s pattern was also easy to follow. Head on over to her blog and make your own Chummy!
