2013 Crochet Review

2013 Crochet Review

A few of my favourites...

Happy New Year :) I'm excited for 2014, as always I have lots of ideas but before I start I wanted to share some of my favourite crochet projects from 2013...

Not everything I crochet makes it onto my blog. I often have to crochet lots of one item or, more recently, I'm working on projects for others that I can't post about until they're published. I sometimes feel I have very little to share here so I was happy to take time out and look back over what I had achieved this year.

These are some of my favourites:

2013 Crochet Review - Lululoves

1. Lulu's blanket - Probably what I am most proud of finishing last year. I'm yet to finish blankets for the other two children. 2. Skinny Hearts Pattern - I had so much fun making these for Valentines. 3. Bobble Bows Pattern - The secret is to make them BIG.


4. Giant Pom Pom Tea Cosy - What's not to love about rainbow colours and a giant pom pom? 5. Vintage Tea Cosy - I still feel the need to make more of these. 6. Mini Squares Tea Cosy - I've reminded myself that I promised to do a pattern for this one *adds it to brand new 2014 to-do list.* It appears I have a tea cosy problem, I made over 20 tea cosies last year!


7. Lulu's Hat - I loved working with this gorgeous Daisy Chain yarn from Knit Collage. 8. Lenny the Rabbit - The first time I'd bought a crochet kit. 9. Fair Isle Cardigan - This is another item I'm very proud of, I don't often make clothing items so it felt like a big accomplishment to finish it.

10. Wristwarmers Pattern - Made using Jeanette Sloan's Baby Alpaca. 11. Collars - Three new crochet collars for Knitcrate. 12. Necklace - Playing with Anchor Freccia Colorful World kit.


13. Crocodile Cushion - This gorgeous cushion was creating using Joyce Lewis' Crocodile Flower Square, it's one of my all time favourites. 14. Granny Square Cushion - Made using the flamingo inspired Granny Square I designed for Crafty Magazine. 15. Round Ruffle Cushion Pattern - I may have made one or two of these ;) 

I have been so lucky to work with some truly talented individuals and companies over the past year, I am thankful for every opportunity that has come my way. One of my proudest moments was being asked to write a monthly column for Inside Crochet Magazine. I've really enjoyed the process and still can't quite believe it when I read my words in print.

I hope you enjoyed some of my favourites, it was really therapeutic to look back at what I'd created last year. These images have definitely spurred me on, I'm excited all over again for another year of crochet.

Wishing you a 2014 full of colour.
