Nisse the House Spirit
A nisse (also known as a tomte, tomtenisse, or tonttu) is a mythological creature from Nordic folklore today typically associated with the winter solstice and the Christmas season.
Plain, simple and functional crochet gloves.
I have searched high and low for a pattern that was not mittens, or as not lacy and delicate and ended up writing one myself after seeing this roman contraption for knitting gloves.
Will fit most adult hands, can easily be altered to account for longer/shorter/wider/slimmer fingers.
Ice Princess corset
Heavily inspired by the Frozen franchise, become an ice princess with this crochet corset pattern.
Another pattern inspired by the TV show “Hilda”.
What is a Tide Mouse?
Tide Mice are magical creatures summoned by witches for people to grant them good luck, but eventually take their souls and give it to the witch.
Angel tree topper
After trawling the internet, I could not find the angel tree topper I wanted to make, so I just made one myself.
I used a star-shaped hoop to give her a sturdier base, you can find these in craft shops or online.
Watermelon clutch purse
Get a fresh and fruity look this summer, with this juicy clutch purse.
I developed this pattern when I realised that my regular handbag was too big to lug around everywhere. Once I had devised the shape for the bag, I couldn’t help but think of food.
Get festive with this 3-for-1 pattern collection of snowflake scrunchies.
Bring me sunshine crop top
I recently saw a top like this in a shop and decided to make one for myself (for much less!). All in all it’s 8 granny squares sewn together to make a trendy crop top.
Mystery Hunter Dress
Stay warm and look stunning while you catch ghosts and ghouls that all turn out to be old white men in disguise!
Mountain man trousers
Made as part of our upcoming Kristoff (from Frozen) cosplay, some hardy wool trousers for the intrepid mountain man!
After moving to a new apartment and becoming overly paranoid about leaving stains on tables, my boyfriend and I whipped up this quick cat coaster pattern.
“If you ask me, all houses are basically the same. Roof, floor, walls… People saying “Stop walking in like that, Woodman!” “
I absolutely love the Netflix animated TV series Hilda, and when I saw Woodman I knew I absolutely had to make him.
This is probably my most advanced amigurumi pattern so far, making use of surface crochet for smoother joins.
Lace-up fingerless gloves
Add a touch of steampunk to your winter collection with these quick and easy gloves!
Formidable tote bag
A fun, summery tote bag, with the inspirational French message “Formidable” (“Wonderful”). Ideal for taking to the beach, the pool or the fancy new bar.
This design was made for a coworker, who showed me the same bag on eBay, used, for 60€
So using the photo as a guide I wrote my own pattern and made this gorgeous beach bag!
Dogbert & Catbert
Ever wanted your own Dogbert or Catbert from the Dilbert cartoon strip? Of course you have! Well, here's your chance, with some yarn and some patience, you too can adopt these cynical critters!
Add some vintage flair to your autumn look!
Crochet pattern for this simple yet elegant ascot scarf.
This pattern is super easy, and can be made to fit any size!
I made mine with acrylic as part of my Ice Princess cosplay, but you could just as easily make it with a different fiber in a more subtle colour for a comfy and stylish summer skirt.
Make your own baby troll, as seen in Hilda - just be careful not to leave it unsupervised at night!
Fifties style shrug
This pattern was heavily inspired by the Pearl Pal Shrug pattern from Stoles & Shrugs | Spinnerin Volume 122 (1953). The original design can be found here but I rewrote it with some alterations in order to modernize the pattern and accommodate it to the larger 21st century wearer.
It’s not often that I’m honoured to get a request, but this time I am.
My fellow intern and general partner in crime from nine to five wanted an extra special birthday gift for his girlfriend. He sent me a photo of her beloved childhood toy, you know, the one you take with you everywhere and end up battered and well loved, and asked me to crochet a shiny, new replica. I wrote this pattern based off the picture he sent me, and wanted to share it with the world.
Having only at the ripe old age of 23 begun investing in make-up and the required tools, I realised I needed somewhere to store my brushes and other potions, so I devised this cunning solution using leftover cotton yarn from other projects.
It has 10 brush holes as well as a lower pocket idea for eyeliners and the like, and is made to be wrapped around a clothes hanger.
Summer breeze tunic
Free pattern for a light summer tunic, perfect for wearing over a swimsuit.
