Hello, World!

One of my most recent projects
Welcome to my corner of the internet! 

On this blog, I hope to share my latest crochet projects, easy DIYs, and original patterns by yours truly. I've been crocheting for several years and crafting my whole life but decided I needed a place for all the creative overflow. I don't have much up yet but stayed tuned because I have several ideas all at various stages of completion. 

Join me on a wool-filled adventure! 



The Ewe Behind the Blog 

Andromache and her two-day-old babies


 My blog's name is inspired by my very own Ewe, Andromache. I love all sheep a ridiculous amount; some might say a sheep is my spirit animal. But that's simply not true -- I am the sheep's spirit human. Fortunately for both of us, Andromache doesn't mind being stuck with me in the slightest!

Although I hope to mostly focus on crochet and DIYs, rather than sheep, you can expect to see an occasional picture or post about my amateur shepherding experience with my much-loved sheep. 


(A quick note: Although the square in the picture is mine, the pattern is not. You can find Lise by Polly Plum HERE on Ravelry. )

Lucy's Kimono ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Believe it or not, I started this in June. I thought it would be a good early-summer-so-sometimes-it's-chilly-at-night piece. But summer came and went and it still never got finished. Then I thought it would be a good transitioning-into-fall piece. But here it is! If you're wondering why that's because this Kimono is over 12,300 stitches and made with almost 1500 yards of yarn. You read that right.  Fifteen-hundred yards.  So I feel slightly vindicated in this delay. 



I considered waiting for a more seasonable time to release this pattern but decided against it. I've worn it quite a few times and always get tons of sweet compliments. I hope you enjoy it! 




Before we get into the pattern, let's talk about the Diamond Stitch. 




Although the repeat is 8 rows, those rows repeat themselves so it's essentially made up of 5 rows. The repeat is a, b, c, d, e, d, c, b, a. In the back panel, this is rows, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.  Both of the front panels begin with d, so t…

Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Scrubbie

I haven't posted anything in a long time but I'm finally back with a simple flower scrubbie. It's a mere three rounds, requires little counting, and takes about ten minutes to make. You can make a bunch in a single sitting, making them perfect for Croflixing (Crochet+Netflix). They're also versatile-- I've been using mine as face scrubbies but they would be just as good in the kitchen. 

I included some round-by-round photos to help with construction. It's such an easy, straightforward pattern it probably doesn't need a photo tutorial but now it's got one anyway. I've been working on better photos and hope to eventually take good photos myself.  I don't know if I'm improved much but I certainly have been having fun. 



But enough about photos. Let get right into the pattern.

Tiny Flower Blossoms: A Free Quick Crochet Pattern

I have a doozy of a simple pattern for you. These adorable mini flowers take all of three minutes to make and use somewhere between 1-4 yards (The exact amounts depend on your gauge). 






This is a one-round instant gratification project. The size is a little bit bigger than a quarter.





Depending on how much yarn you have, hook size, and how many petals you make, they can end up very different. The differences add to the eclectic, handmade feel. 





I used yarn scraps between less than what I estimate is four-ish yards (left) and just under a yard (far right). So when I say you can use the tiniest scraps, I'm not exaggerating. 




They are addictive; before you know it you'll have a whole meadow of tiny blossoms.
