Plant pot covers-free crochet pattern

This quick little make is a great use for any leftover bits of t shirt or chunky yarn. I used the Hoooked ribbon and zpagetti yarns to make these cute little gifts for my little boy's pre-school teachers. The pattern would suit any yarn that has a small amount of stretch in it and it's really simple to adapt. I've made these using paintbox yarns chunky acrylic too and it works perfectly!

You will need:
Just a small amount of yarn and a hook size to match (with the t shirt or ribbon yarn I use 9mm or chunky acrylic with a 6mm)
a small plant pot. Mine measure approx. 2 inch diameter at the base, 2.5 inch diameter at the top and height = 2.5 inches
scissors and darning needle to weave in ends

Follow the basic pattern below increasing the number rows to adjust height or diameter

mc = magic circle
st= stitch
hdc= us half double/uk half treble
ss= slip stitch
ch = chain

note-ch 1 does not count as a stitch

with t shirt yarn and a 9mm hook:

Amigurumi dolls and the dreaded CE testing

I have to admit, I was quite naive when I first started to make my crocheted dolls. Amigurumi was the ultimate crochet level up for me and when I successfully achieved it I was so pleased with myself, the legalities of selling them didn't really occur to me.

When you first hear about CE testing, a legal requirement to sell your soft toys within the EU, it can be a little off putting to say the least. As a maker you just want to be able to create but it seems there's so much red tape to get through first. It can be totally overwhelming but, having recently gone through the process of self certifying, it absolutely can be done

Don't give up!

It's a lot to take in at first but there's plenty of support available. A wealth of information can be found on dedicated Facebook groups, created by people who have been through (and survived!) the CE process. Downloadable packs, such as the Conformance self certification pack for handmade soft toys, are incredibly useful and reall…

Easter Bunny Eggs- Free Crochet Pattern

These cute little bunnies are quick, fun to make and are a great way of using up your yarn scraps. Make them with or without the hanging loops to make your perfect Easter decoration.

I originally designed these for Simply Crochet magazine last year using 2 contrasting strands of cotton 4 ply yarn held together. Pictured above is Stylecraft Classique Cotton 4ply (100% cotton 50g/182m)1 ball of each in Sky blue (3667), Fondant (3094), Soft lime (3663), Lavender (3673) and Sunflower (3662)
You can also use 1 strand of dk yarn instead or go chunkier with a larger hook to make a bigger egg. I recently made some using King Cole Stripe DK in pink. I really like the way the colour changes work up differently in each egg. Have fun using different yarn weights and hook sizes to create your own unique decoration.

You will need:
Any dk weight yarn or 2 strands of 4-ply held together.
2.5mm crochet hook Stitch marker
Polyester toy stuffing
