I decide to try my hand at crochet flowers, particularly daffodils. I search for (and tried) a few different patterns, but none of them look right to me.
So I decide to design my own pattern. After lots of tries I came up with this pattern.

Free Crochet DaffodilFree Crochet Daffodil

This pattern is made in two parts and sewn together afterwards.
I used Crochet thread NÂș. 8 and a 1 mm hook.

Pink Daisy Baby Blanket

This pattern is written in 3 parts: The Granny squares, Joining and the border.


V-Stitch scarf

This scarf is pretty, easy and fast. It only took me 2 evenings (while watching TV!).

It is basically all V-Stitches!


Make the starting chain as long as you would like the width of your scarf to be. Keep in mind should be a multiple of 3 + 2 (3 per V-Stitch and 1 each end for turning).

Blocking 4. Small 3D bells and tubes.

The easiest way to block 3D objects is to stretch them over something the perfect size and shape. Now if you are lucky enough to have something at hand perfect use it, but if you don't it's time the get creative!!
When I was making my bells I couldn't think of anything (well nothing that worked!) so I decide that they looked good without blocking!! But when I was making my daffodils I needed to block the trumpets. No way around not blocking!!
So after many ideas, tries and searches around the house I finally came up with this idea. It's simple and requieres no new objects!!

Bocked 3D bells

What you need:

-Pins (Lots of)
-Baking paper (or something similar)
-A blocking board (a thick piece of cardboard, styrofoam, etc)
-Something to use as stuffing. (cut off ends of wool, cotton wool, stuffing, etc)
-A sheet of paper (if you wish to draw out shapes to pin to)
