Crochet blanket patterns that are suitable for little boys are actually quite rare to come by and I have been searching far and wide for something to  make.

I was considering just winging it and picking a stitch from  a stitch from my favourite book which has over 200 stitch patterns each one beautiful and unique to make a baby blanket with.  I Love this book it has lovely stitch patterns, afghan blocks, and lovely border patterns meaning you can mix and match and make endless unique crocheted blankets.   

As I was looking online I found this rather colourful circular 12 point star afghan/blanket pattern and thought it would look fantastic in the chosen colours of Greys that the mum to be had chosen.

I  suppose until we see something made we wonder how it looks so I carried on.

Diamond Crochet Blanket ( Ultimate scrap-ghan Project)

 The Ultimate Scrap Yarn Bursting Blanket Pattern.
diamond scrap yarn blanket crochet patternI actually started crocheting these diamonds one night, by sheer accident. But I soon realized I could use up all those little odds and ends of yarn, you know the little balls of leftover yarn that are too large to throw away yet not small enough to crochet any one paticular thing.

This is one of these projects I have at the side and when I just want to mindlessly crochet for the sake of crocheting something, not needing too big a project, but just keep those hands busy.... ( yup we've all been there) what's great about this is, I never get bored sometimes even when I am working another project and get to the end of it, I see I have enough yarn left and quickly whip up another diamond piece. Any color, the only thing I do need to watch out for is the difference in yarn weight. If it is thicker I go down a hook or finer I go up a hook, But I mostly work in double knit or Aran so it's not too much of a problem.
  Probably like a LOT of us , yarn-holics, I have boxes of small balls of yarn just sitting around in bags collecting dust. You know those ones you think you may need one day yet your yarn stash is just getting bigger and bigger.
I refuse point blank to throw away good yarn, so I wanted something I could make using these odds and ends of wool. BUT some of the leftover bits of yarn were not long enough for even an individual row to make a blanket, not even big enough to perhaps make into squares, so I wanted something that still would look attractive yet not all half-finished rows and join.
So Let me introduce the Diamond Crochet Blanket, perfectly symmetrical in its formation easy to make by simple increases and then decreases at the ends of your rows, this is an awesome way to use up those small scraps of yarn and those odds and ends that are just not enough to throw away, yet not big enough for another project.

Crochet Slipper Boots A Free Crochet Pattern (How To Crochet Slipper Boots)

Crochet slipper sock pattern- slipper socks for menMy Daughter Asked for a new pair of her favourite Crochet Slipper Socks. I love these funky pink and white striped cosy socks!
The slipper socks are really easy to make either in plain color or why not alternate whatever colours you wish!.

This is a very easy and  free crochet pattern to make these toasty cosy slippers which can easily be made into slipper boots or can be worn as thick cosy socks. 
Following the basic slipper pattern and choosing when you want to finish you can create several styles of crochet slippers from this one pattern.
 
It's nearing that time of year again when its time to think about Gift ideas!  
I swear I cant make enough of these as the men also love these crochet slipper socks. 
 I don't play around too much with sizing as I found this one size just about fits all (Well apart from hubby and my Nephew! whose a size 12! I just add more to the starting round and increase as per) or like for my nieces tiny feet I  went down a size in hook and yarn. 

I am asked every year to make these crochet boot slippers, not only for the ladies in the family but my hubby loves his pair too. 


Looks like Knit But its Crochet Warm Cosy Winter Hat (FREE Pattern)

Being Warm at this time of year is essential. I find a lot of the basic crochet hats quite drafty. Here in South West Scotland winds are strong and it's chilly. SO I am always looking for a good thick warm hat. It makes it even better when its a fast, easy pattern. 
Worked in Rows, using the amazing 3rd loop stitch of the HDC aka...Camel stitch. 
Which makes this hat look like it's been knitted. But Its definitely crocheted.
