Crochet Pattern Testing...

I like to do a little pattern testing for others now and again and this month I have been helping out the lovely Marta ( with her fab new pattern for a Child's Crochet Cowl.

 Hooked up in bright coloured stripes, this cosy cowl is made with a really simple but very effective zigzag/ripple stitch that pulls the fabric together in a concertina effect to make it extra snugly!

The pattern was wonderfully easy to follow and Roo loves his finished cowl.

Marta tells me she is hoping to submit it to a crochet magazine. I can't wait to see it in print!! You can check out more of Marta's work on her beautiful Instagram feed too - she's @MrsDaftSpaniel 

Another pattern I have been testing is this lovely little daffodil for my sister-in-law Michelle over at Lost on the Cloud.

I love daffodils (especially the miniature varieties) and these little crochet beauties are perfect for adding some spring colour to your room.

I really enjoyed making these two - in fact I may have to make more. And maybe some little blue forget-me-nots, purple pansies and white daisies too...

If you would like to have a go at hooking up some pretty little daffodils to herald in the Spring you can find the pattern here.

I've not just been testing patterns for other people this month, I have also been coming up with a few of my own. Here's a little teaser for a new granny square pattern I have been working on.

I hope to share the basic granny square pattern here in a few weeks but I am also working on a full pdf cushion pattern which will be available via Ravelry and my Folksy shop soon too! 

Don't forget to subscribe to my blog (there's a box for that in the column to the right) or follow me on Bloglovin so you don't miss the free granny square pattern when it is published.
