I decided to try the Bertie pattern using chunky wool so he’d be big and it worked a treat! I love them 🙂
I really do love this pattern by Ilaria Caliri! You can check out all her patterns on Ravelry here
I’m currently working on the Mandala Blanket from the simply crochet magazine – designed by Hannah Cross ( the Ravelry link is here ) and am loving it – I’m enjoying the way each round is different.
I’ve tried something a bit different with the colours. Still not sure about the gold next to the burgundy but overall I’m likeing it!
I still have over 20 rounds to go – this blanket is going to be big!
I LOVE this pattern by Ilaria Caliri! It was available in issue 31 of Simply Crochet Magazine and I couldn’t wait to make one! It is also available to buy on Ravelry here
So here is my Bertie…
Of course, I thought he might be lonely so I made him a friend…
I named her Bernadette. I’m not sure about her dress – it didn’t turn out quite as imagined but I still think she’s cute.
I have the feeling I will be making many, many more of these!
It’s official! I love Hello My Name is Amineko: The Story of a Crafty Crochet Cat by Nekoyama and I adore making sleepy kitties 🙂
Here are some that I’ve made.
Big kitty! See picture below for size difference. I didn’t realise he’d be that big lol
See? I’m completely addicted.
It’s a great pattern and I love the book. It gives you great ideas for different facial expressions / how to make the kitties have different personalities! It made me want to make a whole bunch.
Plus I’ve found they go down a treat as gifts!
