The Sunflowers Scarf Pattern - Inspired by Van Gogh's famous painting... Including my first video tutorial!

Image
Inspired by Van Gogh's famous painting, the Sunflowers scarf is made from 100% new wool making it super cosy for autumn and winter.  Sunflowers always make me feel so happy, I love the cheery brightness of the petals and the intricate honeycomb effect of the seed head.  I used 12 Sunflower Granny Squares joined together, with big poofy tassels at the ends.  Treat yourself or make a last minute gift for someone you love. As always an ad free pdf version of this pattern is available in my online stores, thank you for helping to support my work...

Hello everyone, it's time for our final instalment of our Mini Mother's Day pattern series.  If you are from the UK, happy Mother's Day, take some time out of your day to treat yourself and make this quick and easy cowl. If you are from the US you still have plenty of time to make this as a gift.  I hope you enjoy the pattern... You can find  part 1 ,    part 2  and part 3 here... I have used Stylecraft Batik Elements DK in the shade Titanium and matched it with Jarol Heritage DK in Winter White.  Although I have used different colours for some of the patterns, they are all designed to be a matching set and you can of course use the same colourway for each one.

Image
Hello Friends.  It's time for part 3 of our Mini Mother's Day pattern series and this week continuing on with the granny square theme, we have the Granny Square Beanie.  I'm sure any mother would love this for Mother's Day or you could even make a head start on your Christmas gifts. You can find part 1 and part 2 here... The hat is designed to fit an adult and is quite snug around the brim and slightly slouchie at the top.  4 squares are joined together with ribbing added at the brim and granny stitch shaping at the crown.  It works up pretty fast, making it a great quick and easy gift. I have used Stylecraft Batik Elements DK in the shade Titanium and matched it with Jarol Heritage DK in Winter White.  Although I have used different colours this time, all of the patterns are designed to be a matching set and you can of course use the same colourway for each one.
