Knitting and crochet is growing increasingly popular in crafting circles up and down the country, and there are so many beautiful patterns out there it’s easy to see why.

There’s also a new knitting and crochet yarn on the scene from the Women’s Institute (WI), the colour range is great from beautiful brights to earthy rustic tones, I couldn’t resist getting my knitting needles and crochet hooks out and get busy making . . .

Spurred on by the success of the brooch I made another of the roses and stitched a hair elastic onto the back to make a pretty hair tie.

Helpful Hints and Tips

When holding the crochet hook, if you hold it like a pencil, you then have your ring and little fingers free to hold the crochet while working on the next stitch giving more stability and better tension.

Hobbycraft Inspirational Content Marketing Assistant, I'm in love with all things craft, vintage and floral. I spend my spare time visiting craft fairs in the south on the look out for something that's a little bit different. When not out exploring by foot I'm on my bike riding around the country side or down by the beach.
