Got its name from hours of feverishly crocheting during Mad Men!

Pictured with it are two pillows my grandmother crocheted. ❤

Sick Crochet Couch Fest 2012

A little while ago I had the flu and spent 3 days on the couch

Producing many little critters and things…

This guy is not an original idea. It’s a recreation of a photo I found online!

Another online recreation. Brought to me by Pinterest.com!

Log! This was a project I started over the summer and had bigger ideas for but decided to finish it instead.

I’ve wanted to make little babushkas forever! These gals joined me on the couch.

Another Pinterest pattern!

It was the best sick couch fest ever.

Do you want fries with that?

I’ve had an obsession with tiny crochet burgers recently. It all started with the idea of making a tiny cookie. And when I finished the naked cookie (without chocolate chips) I thought, “This could be the bottom of a tiny burger!” And then came the creation of a tiny burger which led to the accompaniment of fries and other toppings!

Hoorah!

Granny Flower Square Tute

Last year I finished this afghan (my first)

Recently I revisited it and was asked for a tutorial of how to make the flower square. So ask and you shall receive.

Flower Granny Motif:

Magic Ring

Rnd 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc) 11 dc (12 st) Join with sl st at top of ch 3

Rnd 2: Ch 3, dc in same stitch space, 2 dc in each space (24 st) Join with sl st in 3rd ch of ch 3

Rnd 3: Ch 8 (first 3 ch counts as dc) skip two dc spaces and dc in next space. Ch 5, skip 2, dc in next space

continue around until you have 8 chain spaces. Join with sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch 8.

It resembles a slice of tomato at this point!

Rnd 4: sc, hdc, 5 dc, hdc, sc in next ch space.  Continue around until you’ve made all 8 petals. Sl st in first sc. BO

With Leaf color:

Join yarn in any 3rd dc space in middle of petal. Ch 3, 2 dc in same space, ch 3, 3 dc in same space. This will be your first corner. Ch 2, triple crochet in sc space above the dc post of rnd 3.

Ch 2, 3 dc in the middle of the next petal, ch 2, 3 dc in same space. Ch 2, tc in next space above dc post, ch 2, 3 dc in middle of next petal , ch 3, 3 dc in same space (2nd corner). Continue around. The only difference in the pattern is for the corner leaves you ch 3 between the cluster of 3 dc. And the other leaf clusters only have 2 chains between the 3 dc. Join with a slip stitch in the 3rd ch of original ch 3. BO

With border color:

Rnd 1: Join yarn in one of the corner ch 3 spaces. Ch 3, 2 dc in same space, ch 3, 3 dc in same space. 3 dc in next ch 2 space, sk tc, 3 dc in next ch 2 space. 3 SC in next ch 2 space (of leaf cluster- the shorter stitch helps create more of a square shape).

And repeat- 3 dc in each ch 2 space, 3 dc, 3 ch, 3 dc for every corner, and 3 sc in each leaf cluster. Join with sl st in 3rd chain of original ch 3.

Rnd 2: Ch 3, dc in next 2 st spaces. Corner cluster: 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc. Dc in each stitch space until you get to a corner and repeat corner cluster. Continue around and sl st in the 3rd ch of original ch 3.

Rnd 3: Ch 3, dc in each stitch space until corner. Corner cluster: 3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc. Dc in each stitch space until you get to a corner and repeat corner cluster. Continue to dc in each stitch space. Sl st in the 3rd ch of original ch 3. BO

Finito!

Lion Bunny!

I made this for a special little buddy of mine who recently moved away. He and I bonded over the past year and it was sad to say goodbye. He especially loved bunnies and lions so I combined the two. Probably one of my more successful freehand amigurumi patterns. I definitely had the image of Miffy in my head…

I super love him ❤
