Free Pattern: Lucky Clover Appliques

 

IMG_2700Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Last month I shared my pattern for heart appliques. This month I am sharing a pattern for 3 and 4 leafed clovers. This pattern is great for scraps of yarn. Keep reading for the pattern. You can use these clovers to personalize clothing and accessories, or make them in to pins and magnets.

A Quartet of Mermaids

 

IMG_1867Recently I blogged about a calm colour palette: made up of a blue, pink, purple, and brown yarn. After a busy holiday season, I needed some time to wind down. This week I finished four mermaids inspired by these colours. Keep reading below for a neat characteristic of their hair.

Free Pattern: Heart Appliques

 

IMG_1567Noah loves practicing his colours, numbers,  and shapes. For Valentine’s Day I decided to use some scrap yarn to make these quick hearts. But I didn’t wait for February 14 to let him play. First there was counting, then hiding, finally throwing. I might also string them into a garland, bracelet, or necklace. Maybe save them to add to mittens or a hat.

Enjoy the pattern!

I have some pattern ideas on the back burners, but this week I have been inspired by colour. The holidays were hectic and 2013 was a hard year globally speaking. With the new year, I wanted to feel calm. Temperatures are well below freezing and looking outside, I am surrounded by Winter calm. Keep reading below for the colours.
