Blue and Round Bunny Rug

I just don't remember when I made this, but it must have been months ago, maybe even last year. I've just sewn in the ends this morning and took some photos! I used a 3.5mm hook and 4ply acrylic yarn. I didn't make it for anyone in particular, just did it for fun!

Water Bottle Cosy

I just quickly made this cosy up for my water bottle, it was easy and quick. I used 8 ply cotton and a 4 mm hook. The base is just a flat circle of 3 rounds, then straight up the sides with mesh. Lastly, I finished with a length of chain to weave in and out of the last row of stitches to form a string pull. Fun!

Crochet spiral bunny rug in leaf, stone and lavender

Well this year is almost over and I haven't written here since January! Where has the year gone?? I just finished this spiral bunny rug that I have been working on for years. It doesn't lay flat because I think I may have changed size hook midway. I was sure I used a 3.5mm hook, but maybe the beginning was done with a 3mm hook? The yarn I used was 4 ply luxury wool from the Bendigo Woollen Mills. Its just a pattern I made up and I can't remember where I found the edge pattern. I don't know what I will do with this bunny rug, its imperfections make it unsuitable to sell. I guess I will just hang on to it in case I ever meet a baby that needs a woollen bunny rug!
