Hi Happy Crocheters! Here comes my new free amigurumi pattern for a crocheted Gunther the Goat. Its been a busy year, I’ve gotten a puppy and she is taking up all my time and has a very bad addiction to yarn so its hard for me to crochet lately.
Here is my Sophie’s Universe Adapted Footstool cover. So if you’ve never been introduced to the Sophie’s Universe Blanket CAL (Crochet Along) it’s a beautiful colourful afghan blanket which uses loads of different crochet techniques to make a mandela like pattern. I’ve always wanted to do it, but as an avid crocheter I have way too many blankets around the house.
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.
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/
