PATTERN DETAILS

I love my threads all in my floss box and the rainbom they make, and I have always been interested in knowing what the actual names are rather than their simple colour codes. Plus, I love crosswords!! Feel free to add your own clues and words.. Mix it up a bit! Note: Where the letters cross over in the puzzle, I have written the letter with single stitches in the opposing colours. I would actually recommend using a single strand of each colour held together to create the crossover, rather than individual stitches. I simply designed it this way to deomnstrate using both colours in the letter. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Back Stitch Cross Stitch

Mid 2011 in the middle of winter, I was sitting at home one day trying to think of a craft that would not take over an entire room. My sewing is in its own room, my scrapbooking has its own cupboard. My fiances canvases are stacked in the wardrobes with his paints. Next day we went to a local store (The Warehouse) and I went down the crafting aisle. I found a 4-pack of crochet hooks for $4. Grabbing them and a couple of balls of yarn, I went home and jumped on youtube to learn. A few days of different stitched swatches later, I headed to Etsy and found the wonderful array of gorgeous crochet patterns. Buying a 6-pack discount listing from someone I have now returned to a few times, I picked a hat and got started. So began my love of crochet. Unfortunately I hadn't quite figured out exactly how important gauge was. Surely the 5.5mm hook they called for could be replaced with the 4mm I had? Needless to say, the first hat I created did not fit my son. The 2-5 year size hat barely fit an orange. Now, a year on, I can honestly say that my crochet is not an in-the-corner project. Yarn is cheaper than therapy and my therapy has its own cupboard in the lounge room, a pencil case full of hooks and yarn in various plastic bags and bins through the house. It has also extended to knitting needles and am an avid pattern hoarder. I have begun to design and ideas are coming to me quicker than I can mock up, type, get tested and released. But I am working my way though my ideas book, one pattern at a time.
