Black Sheep Free Crochet Pattern

Black Sheep Wool Crochet

 

Free Crochet Black Sheep Wool Pattern up ahead for you brilliant crocheters! I had lots to crochet and only a week off work to do it in, so I focused my efforts on this little lamb! I was asked by a friend of mine who works at Black Sheep Wool (I love that place! They even have a comfy leather couch that all the guys sit and wait on) to create a Black Sheep Free Crochet Pattern for them.

Over coffee in their onsite coffee shop we decided that I would have to design and crochet a Black Sheep!

Piglet Free Crochet Pattern

Piglet free crochet pattern

Hello Happy Crocheters!! As it’s been a while since I’ve provided a free crochet pattern, thought I’d be good and get one sorted for you all. One of my colleagues at work is having a baby and mentioned that his wife loves pigs, so I decided to crochet a big Piglet and a little Piglet for the mummy to be. One day I’ll have to crochet Pooh Bear and Tiger too! These were really quick to do, I’m not sure whether I’m just getting faster, or the new Happy Crocheting Hooks are improving my crocheting speed, but I did them both in one night! I used yarn specific for babies as I wanted them to be perfect and babies tend to put anything within reach into their mouths so better safe than sorry.

Happy Crocheting Ergonomic Hooks

ergonomic crochet hooks

 

I’m so happy right now. Mr. Crochet-Widow and I have joined our two talents together and created some Happy Crocheting hooks. We had the idea months and months ago but wanted to spend time testing lots of different crochet hooks before we committed to putting the Happy Crocheting name on one. Well the one’s we’ve chosen not only are super colourful and cute, but they’re also really easy to use. I have literally just come back off holiday were I was crocheting 5+ hours a day and even with my arthritis my hands didn’t ache one bit and they come in a 9pcs set, 2mm to 6mm). Oh and I have created a free crochet pattern of the Happy Crocheting bunnies that you get when you purchase a set of hooks from us.

They have an Ergonomic grip – this is silly, but I had never heard of the word ergonomic before we started all this, so for those who don’t know it means ‘designed to minimise physical effort and discomfort’. They really are brilliant to work with, they’re soft yet don’t have any discoloration after lots of use. They come in a little transparent organiser with the cute Happy Crocheting bunnies on (I designed the flyer bit). They also come with a one year’s guarantee, but I am sure you’ll love them.

Crochet Baby Booties

As a little side project I have been crocheting some baby booties for a friend of a friend. They only took me two hours to do which was brilliant as lately I’ve been working on some quite time consuming projects. Normally for Happy Crocheting I try to write up my own patterns, but this time I used a Crochet Crowd pattern which can be found here: http://thecrochetcrowd.com/sweet-high-tops-video-tutorial/
