@lyndascraftroom and I have to pinch ourselves sometimes, these patterns came out of our heads! And people are actually making them, not only are they making them they’re learning something new and building they’re confidence, it’s so heartwarming it really is.

As you may know from a previous blog post, I was very lucky to visit New York City with my family back in October. And being a self confessed yarn addict, of course no trip to New York for me would be complete without a visit to a local yarn store…
I did my research before we went and I found this blog post from fellow blogger Marie of ‘Underground Crafter’ absolutely invaluable!

As my birthday is Christmas Eve, I can totally relate to this.
Many a time, family members have asked me what I would like for my Birthday/Christmas and I’ve found it very difficult to come up with an answer.

For the head, I used the pattern from Edward’s Imaginarium by Kerry Lord, with the rabbit ears (H4 if you have the book). For the blanket part, I used a free pattern from the Hobbicraft website, the Bernat Star blanket and stopped when I thought the blanket was big enough. All that was left to do was to sew the two together and to add details like the nose and eyes (making sure to secure everything really really well). I really love this softy, it’s super…
