It was really hard to narrow down all my projects (most are listed on my ravelry page if you want to have a nose at more) to just my top five, so I went with seven. Seven is a lucky number after all!
But here goes, my favourite finished crochet items (so far):
7 – Monster Hook Case
At number seven is one of my first projects. It was a small project, but for my first lesson in pattern reading it had to be small. I like to make practical items, things I can use and enjoy for years to come. This monster hook case was made to keep all my hooks nice and tidy. Two and a bit years on and it’s a little too small for all of my yarny needs and I now use a large pencil case as my collection has grown, but I still keep this in that new case for my first few hooks. It’s a great reminder of how much I have learned.
6 – Eeyore
Next up is my favourite Amigurimi project. I started making stuffed toys last summer and LOVED it! My sister is a huge fan of Eeyore and this pattern (Paid for but totally worth it) was super cute and easy to follow. I’ve made a few of these cuties now.
5 – Ripple Blanket
At five is a simple but beautiful ripple pattern is by Attic24. I made this lap blanket for my Nana last Christmas and I definitely wanted to keep it for myself. It was soft and warm and those peaceful calm waves were so relaxing to do.
4 – My Happy Jumper
Number four is a chevron jumper by Esther Chandler. This jumper was my first ever attempt at making an item of clothing. It was made from the top down and is a very close fitting jumper because my gauge was off (as usual), but thankfully it stretches to fit and always brings a smile to my face when I wear it.
3 – Tunisian Crochet Shawl
In third place is one I have already shared with you – my Tunisian Crochet Shawl. I had never tried Tunisian Crochet before this and loved the way it worked up and my eventual choice of yarn. I’m looking forward to some cooler weather to get this beauty out.
2 – BAMCAL 2014 Blanket
This mammoth project had to make an appearance again. I’m super proud of my BAMCAL blanket. The size of this project or how long it took hasn’t even put me off making blankets – I can’t wait to start on my next one … which I am already planning!
1 – Fit anything Bag
It was tough to choose my number one favourite project, but I have gone for the market bag. I use this every week! I take it to knit and natter with me and it’s always bursting full of yarny goodness. It’s huge, it’s practical and I love it.
So there they are. My seven favourite projects to date. Do you have a favourite project of yours?
