It’s been such a long time between posts! 

2015 was a busy whirlwind of a year!

Emma and Robert were married in August, I’ll share some more photos in another post. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful.

 

We celebrated my Nan’s 93rd birthday in December. She’s doing wonderfully for 93!

Christmas was lovely. A time to relax and unwind after a busy year. 

I have some new patterns in the works which I’m currently writing up, I’m looking forward to sharing them with you very soon!

I’ve de cluttered my bookcase! If you’d like to grab a bargain check back in shortly, I’ll be posting many craft books here in the next post. There may be one or two you’d like. My bookcase was overflowing!

A PDF pattern party soon also for those asking before the launch of my new patterns, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Wishing everyone a fabulous 2016!

Sarah London

Wow! I guess I’ve taken a very long unexpected hiatus. It wasn’t intentional, life got busy I guess.

I feel rejuvenated and ready to move forward!

To swing things off a PDF pattern party is long over due.

You know how it works… 10 for $10, 20 for $20, 30 for $30 etc.

NEW eMag! Spread the word!

An idea came to me a few weeks ago and I’ve been busily working on the foundations behind the scenes.

It’s now time to put it out into the Universe, into the Crochet Community!

The idea is, to compile the best free crochet tutorials/patterns that have been blogged in 2014 into a fabulous emagazine!

The publication will be presented on Issuu for FREE, for all to enjoy.

We are looking to showcase 52 projects!

If you have published a free crochet tutorial/pattern on your blog in 2014 we want to hear from you!

Please email through a link to your tutorial/pattern to, sarahlondontextiles@gmail.com

Our Crochet Community spans very wide, it’s global. This publication is going to be multilingual, so that across all continents we can all enjoy and participate.

English, Spanish, French, Russian, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Danish, German, Arabic, Japanese, Greek, Chinese, Portuguese, Polish.

If I’ve left out a language then please bring it to my attention. We are looking for submissions, globally! We wish for all languages to be represented.

We are also looking for fantastic sponsors for this publication. Full, half and quarter page adverts will be available. If you are interested in advertising within the pages of this publication please email, sarahlondontextiles@gmail.com

More new Patterns!

Marisol | Sarah London

Colour, colour and more colour!

The first pattern off my hook is Marisol. I’m thinking this one is my new favourite!

Eighty squares of saturated colour edged in neon . . .

Included in the pattern is my step by step visual tutorial for ‘joining-as-you-go’!

Surprisingly, this blanket works up quickly, with my quick construction method you’ll have a cheery colourful blanket made in no time at all.

The second pattern fresh off my hook is Alina!

Rows and rows of colour, vertical or horizontal the choice is yours.

This pattern is perfectly suited for a blanket also!

Alina | Sarah London

Lastly, especially for my American friends, with the Fourth of July a week away there is just enough time to hook some red, white and blue stars to celebrate Independence Day!

Each Lacy Star measures from point to point 8 1/2 inches, they would look lovely strung as bunting or incorporated into your table decorations.

All patterns are now available in the Store!

 

Crochet a Yo-Yo Cushion

Yo-Yo Cushion | Sarah London

A pop of colour today!

It was around this time last year that I blogged about utilising your tiny left over scraps of yarn by making yo-yo’s! You’ll find that post here.

Too precious to toss . . . those tiny fragments of left over yarn!

Crochet a Yo-Yo Coverlet | Sarah London

Instead of continuing with a coverlet, I worked a few more yo-yo’s and transformed the piece into a cushion.

It’s a nice injection of colour, especially on these chilly Winter days.

You’ll find the instructions below if you’d like to start hooking a few yo-yo’s too!

Crochet a Yo-Yo Coverlet | Sarah London

To make a Yo-Yo:

Ch 6, join with sl st to form a ring.

Ch 3, work 15 tr into ring, join with a sl st into top of beg ch-3.

Fasten off.

Use your preferred method of joining . . . for this project I joined as I went.

Pixel Pillow | Sarah London

I can not believe that we have been in our new house now for 6 months. What’s even more unbelievable is that I am still unpacking boxes!

I’ve slowly been decorating/dressing each room . . . our new bed has been delivered, much excitement! I’ll share some pics next week with you.

Happy Weekend and New Moon!

I’ll be back later tonight with three new patterns!

New Patterns for June!

I can not believe it’s June already! In a blink of an eye July will arrive. This year is going super quick!

Today I’ve got three new patterns to share with you, fresh off the hook.

First up, Giselle!

A riot of vibrant colour! I utilized oddments of yarn whilst working this one, introducing a splash of variegated yarn also just to add some jazz.

Giselle | Sarah London

I also worked a Giselle cushion! Instructions for both blanket and cushion are in the PDF.

Giselle Cushion | Sarah London

If you prefer less colour Giselle works up wonderfully in three harmonious hues!

Next up, a colour rich Chakra Blanket!

All colours of the rainbow! If you meditate or do heaing work this would be a lovely blanket to have in your collection.

I selected a stitch that is more than a dc (sc) but less than a htr (hdc). It’s a stitch with a twist somewhere in between!

I’m currently enjoying a wonderful 5 week meditation course. Every Saturday afternoon, I pause, and go to my meditation class, and breathe.

Chakra Blanket | Sarah London

Lastly, a woven little number, Turkish Delight!

Rows and rows of colour running across a neutral base.

This pattern works beautifully for a blanket, a cushion, or even a scarf!

A small quantity of Chakra Blanket kits will be available within the next week. If you would like to reserve a kit please send through an email and I’ll set one aside for you!
