Leg Lamp Ornament

I woke up one morning and just knew I had to make this!So I sat down, made my sketch to gauge my size by and began to crochet and write.

This pattern is free in my Ravelry store(link is below). I figured since its a Christmas ornament then it could be my gift to you for the holidays.

I used number 10 crochet thread in skin tone, black, gold and yellow. Everything is made with a 1.5 mm crochet hook.It’s all done with simple stitches,and should be a very easy make even for beginners. The trickiest part is the heel on the shoe and while there are plenty of picture in the pattern I have provided a video below to help anyone who may have issues with that part.

Happy Holidays!I hope you enjoy making the ornament!

“Warmness Managed” Pocket Shawl/Wrap

Hello! Its been a crazy few weeks. I’ve been working on this pattern for my “warmness managed” oversized pocket/shawl/wrap,and to say its been an adventure is and under statement.I’ve had tantrums, frogged, recounted, trashed graphs, plain made myself bonkers, but I’m very pleased with the end result.

The pattern can be found here on my Ravelry https://www.ravelry.com/stores/holly-bailey-designs

Or here on my Etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/SimplyMeHolly?ref=profile_header

If you purchase the pattern from my Ravelry use code Warmness and choose a 2nd pattern for free!

I tried to make this pattern as user friendly as possible. I did away with the graph and wrote it all out so it would be easier for everyone to follow along with. Below are some helpful videos that show the technique I used for the color changes, and working the cable stitches.

If you have any questions or issues please feel free to reach out to me.You can pm me through my Facebook page http://facebook.com/simplyme.hu Also please feel free to share pictures of your work on my page.I love to see what people create from my patterns!

This pattern can be made with or without the hood. I used about 3000 yds of Lion Brand Pound of Love( 2 skeins of gray and 1 skein of black) most worsted weight 4 tarns or aran weight will work well. I also used a 6mm crochet hook.

Lots of writing!

I used 2 different types of cable patterns.One on the pockets and one on the trim. The trim sections are made seperate from the body of the shawl and sewn or crocheted on.

I hope you enjoy my pattern! I can’t wait to see your completed work!

His wings are attached at the back and to his arms.

He can be made in a worsted 4/aran weight, a worsted 3/dk weight,or a worsted 2.The one pictured is done in a thinner worsted 4 with a 4mm hook.

His ears are free standing,sewn on across the front and tacked at the back.

Day of the Dead Mask Pattern

Hello all! I finally finished my Day of the Dead masquerade mask pattern!

It took me awhile to complete.I had to get my hands used to the tiny stitches and get a good idea on size.So I did research and a trial run making the mask pictured below.Its a free pattern found on yarnspirations.com

For my pattern, I used #10 crochet thread and a 1.5mm hook.I took inspiration from all the beautiful day of the dead masks I’ve seen for sale in stores lately. I knew I wanted to incorporate a spider web ,so I made that the center of the mask.

It took alot of trial and error to get it added in,but I feel it was worth it.

I tried to use lots of colors,by adding the flowers.I didn’t want to make them to big, I was trying to keep the mask light weight. I also added ribbon and lengths of the thread I used.

I hope you all enjoy!

Unicorns and Dragons

Hello all!I’ve been very busy in the craft room this month.So many ideas,so little time.

About 2 years ago I had a customer request I make a few unicorns for her.She told me what she desired and the Unicorn pictured above was born.Ive made her several times since then,but just recently I have gotten around to actually writing a pattern out for her.

As I was working on writing the pattern up,I thought to myself,this pattern would also make a cute dragon,so of course,I got side tracked,and had to experiment.

Today I have finally gotten back on track.My Unicorn pattern is finished and ready for testing.So it will be available on my Ravelry and Etsy soon.

The dragon,made from the unicorn base pattern, should be ready in about 2 weeks.

Enjoy your week and look for my blog post in the next day or two about the release of my unicorn pattern!

Skull Backpack

Hello everyone!Just finished work on the Skull Backpack pattern to match the pocket shawl that I recently released!

It uses the same skull pattern as the shawl.I made the bag a bit bigger than I had planned,but it worked out well. I love the size and the shape.

The body of the bag and flap are all one continuous piece worked up from the bottom base of the bag.

I made the straps so that you have the option to choose 1 over the shoulder or cross body strap or 2 so it can be worn on your back.
