I'd like you to meet my new friend. This is Miranda and she's my new dress form.
It was serendipitous as that day I'd had a commission for a crochet top so she was put to work straight away, and since I've had more clothing commissions come in so shes defiantly earning her keep.
I'll share all the clothes I've been making when magazines come out.
In the pic above shes wearing my three row scarf. Its such a simple pattern (UK abbreviation)
use chunky yarn and a 6-8mm hook. chain a length as long as you want the scarf to be.
one the first row treble stitch in each ch st.
row 2 and 3 - 2treble in each st.
that's it, fasten off, weave in your ends and you have a scarf in an hour or so.
My head is full of interesting patterns to design, make and adorn Miranda in and I'll be adding some new patterns to my etsy shop soon.
So many people have commented on it and asked for the pattern I thought it was time I wrote it up. It'll be posting it up soon.
the other new pattern is for this asymmetrical cowl necked poncho. This is another of those ideas I've had rattling around in my head waiting for a chance to give it a go. Yesterday some new yarn had come in to the shop, I loved the colour and knew it was perfect for this design. I had to buy it and start it straight away.
Its a really simple design and it actually doesn't take long to make. I hooked up this in a few hours this morning. The pattern will be in my etsy shop by the weekend.
