PopBerries–a bowlful of berrylicious treats!

A set of 9 adoreable crocheted PopBerries & a little bowl, too! PopBerries are each approximately 1 & 1/4″ to 1 & 1/2″ in diameter; bowl is 3″ across bottom, 4″ across top, 2 ” high.

Buy the pattern and crochet your own, or order a set made just for you! Acrylic yarn–may contain some wool  or other fibre; if allergies are a concern, please contact me and I will make a set that is 100% acrylic.  $14.95 plus shipping (bear not included!)

Your children will play with these adorable little Berries for hours, and you can make a set in no time at all. They make a perfect present for a birthday–be ready to make additional sets when your children’s friends see them! They make fun play food–who could resist a bowlful of PopBerries for breakfast?–and are fun to use as mini balls to roll and toss around without fear of hurting anyone, as they are so tiny and light! They also make great pocket pals to take along on walks and car trips.

Each little treasure only takes a few yards of yarn, and you can adjust the size by using thinner or thicker yarn, and larger or smaller hooks. I actually used a 4.25mm hook for the Berries, but Ravelry doesn’t list the option in their chart.

Watch on Facebook and my blog for new PopBerry patterns and other play food items to keep your little ones happy!

If you find any errors, need any help, or would like to comment please contact me on Ravelry, my blog, or FaceBook. If you enjoy this pattern please add it to your favourites on Ravelry (heart!) and if you make some PopBerries please link your project to the design–thanks so much!

NO REFUNDS ON PATTERNS!

Inspired by that wonderful Canadian children’s show, Toopy and Binoo, I am delighted to present the latest EGGSES crochet pattern for a Ragdoll Cat and his Patchy Friend!  They take only very small amounts of yarn, small amounts of time, but provide many hours of enjoyment!  Though they are Egg Cosies, designed to keep your soft-boiled egg warm at the breakfast table or to keep your hardboiled lunchbox egg protected from bumps, they will also be popular as a toy!  You can make a stuffed toy egg to use as play food, and they also make marvelous pocket pals to take along and play with on car trips!

I will also be selling a few sets, which I will post on my Facebook Page–as well as other EGGSES sets! So be sure to check there if you are interested in purchasing some.

All the Eggses Parents are worked flat then sewn or crocheted together (you can crochet together with slip stitch). The crocheted Eggses Babies are worked in the round; the knit Babies are worked flat then sewn.

These crocheted and knitted children’s toys are quick and fun to create from oddments of yarn left over from other projects. The size of yarns, needles, and hooks will determine the size of your finished Eggses.

I used a variety of worsted weight yarns, with 3.5, 4, 4.25 & 4.5 mm hooks; and 4.5 and 5mm needles.

Though these are perfect for Spring & Easter time, your children will play with these toys for hours and their imaginations will soar as they incorporate other toys and collections into their games!

Lady Edith’s London Nights & Tea With Lady Grantham Patterns

CLICK ON PHOTO TO PURCHASE “LADY EDITH’S LONDON NIGHTS” PATTERN $5.00

Lady Edith’s London Nights Shawl pattern is now available as a paid pdf download.  As with some other patterns I’ve designed, it was free to follow along on my blog, row by row, as I designed it.  Once these “work along with me” patterns are complete I leave the free version online for a few days (or a few weeks) until I consolidate it into a pdf file:  then the free online version is removed, and the paid Instant Download Pdf file becomes available.

I’d like to thank designer of the Jimmy Beans Wool “Downton Abbey 2014 KAL” shawl, Kristen Ashbaugh-Helmreich, who graciously gave me permission to design a crocheted version of her shawl, inspired by its shape and style. If you have any questions about the crochet shawl “Lady Edith’s London Nights” please message me, not Kristen, as she did not participate in the design of these crocheted shawls and would not be able to help you–nor have the time to!

This crocheted shawl was inspired in particular by the dynamic personality of Lady Edith Crowley. We see her personality mature and emerge as a strong, vibrant woman who embraces change and lives life with passion.

ALSO AVAILABLE:  Tea With Lady Grantham Shawl Pattern.  This design is the same shape as the Lady Edith shawl, but is a little larger.  It uses stitches that are based on double crochet, and has a more textured appearance as it uses back post and front post double crochet stitch patterns.  Like the other shawl it is made with fingering weight/sock weight yarn and a 3.5mm hook.

Please see my project page for the second shawl, Tea With Lady Grantham for photos/yarn information, and visit my blog for further photos and information. The Tea With Lady Grantham Shawl is based on (Canadian/US terms) double crochet stitch patterns, while Lady Edith’s London Nights is single crochet stitch patterns.

This pattern is written out row by row, and does not include charts. If you need any help, find errors, or would like to comment, please contact me here on Ravelry, on my blog, or on Facebook.
