Pattern notes: The pattern is written in U.K. terms with US terms for ease of conversion. My floral mandala is made of 7 rounds, Round 4 uses cluster stitches, this is where several stitches are grouped together (worked in the same space or stitch) by not completing the final part of the stitch and leaving all loops on the hook, before pulling the hook through all the loops of the incomplete stitches at the end, and forming the cluster stitch. It’s much the same as a decrease is done .I used Stylecraft classique cotton dk, but any double knitting preferably cotton yarn will do, and a 4mm hook. Additional stitches UK 3dtrcl = 3double treble cluster stitch only used at the beginning of Round 4. Skill level for this pattern intermediate.

My Flower Mandala pattern is a gift for you to make for birthdays, Mother’s Day or may be even Easter it looks beautiful with a vase of flowers in the centre or frame it in an embroidery hoop to make a dream catcher, I hope you have fun making it and gifting to your friends and family, Happy crocheting.

Hope Rainbow Blanket Pattern

Hope Traditional Granny square blanket pattern :Rounds 1-10

Hope blanket pattern notes:The main part of the blanket is large granny square with traditional granny square stripes. To keep your square from twisting and corners neat, your square is flipped over after each round alternating from RS and WS rounds, start each new round with the change of colour in a different corner to the previous round, we like to start our next round in the corner to the left of the shade you fastened off in the previous round. This will keep your square neat when your ends are stitched in. ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020

Christmas Pudding Bauble

©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020

Here’s a couple of really cute Christmas decoration, they whizz up in no time at all.

Free patterns are written in my spare time and not nearly as detailed as patterns in my Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewHappyCreative I have included as many photos to help you and there’s pattern notes below. I always recommend reading all patterns notes prior to starting your pattern, I hope you have fun making your Christmas decorations. You are welcome to sell your finished creations made from my pattern, however you may not copy, share, reproduce in any way including video tutorials or sell the pattern itself and we kindly ask that you link to our Etsy shop if selling online https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewHappyCreative ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020 So let’s get started, Happy crocheting 🧶

Pattern notes: Ch1 at beginning of each round does not count as stitch throughout, all rounds are joined with a slip stitch although you could work the pattern without joining the round as a spiral but when you change shades you will get a “jog” rather than a smooth colour change. The main part of the crochet bauble is worked without being attached to the bauble, after Round 17 the bauble is placed inside your crochet and the remaining rounds are crocheted around your bauble. It’s important to fasten off all yarn ends prior to Round 17. Note your decreases are worked as 2dctog.

You will need: 3mm crochet hook ~ Dk cotton yarn, I used Rico Ricorumi in shades nougat, cream, ivy green, wine red,~ plastic baubles approx 5cm diameter these are available at reasonable prices in supermarkets ~ wool needle for sewing in yarn ends ~ scissors ~ glue gun or fabric glue for attaching holly leaves and berries. 🎄

Note : your decreases are worked as 2dctog ( US 2 sctog)

Round 1 Using nougat Ch2, 6dc in 2nd ch from your hook, ss to join in first dc (6sts) Round 2 Ch1, 2dc in each stitch around, ss to join in first dc (12sts)

Round 14, 15, Using cream Ch1, dc in every st around, ss to join in first dc (30sts)

Round 16 Decrease round , Ch1, *(2 dctog, 3dc)* repeat from *to * around, ss to join in first dc (24sts)

Round 17, Using cream Ch1, dc in every st around, ss to join in first dc (24sts )** Insert your bauble next making sure you fasten off your yarn ends before placing your bauble inside your crochet. The remainder of your rounds are worked with the bauble inside .

I find it handy to remove the top of the bauble and replace it after you complete your bauble. Round 18 Decrease round , Ch1, *(2dctog, 2dc)* repeat from *to * around, ss to join in first dc (18sts )

©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020

Round 19 Decrease round , Ch1, *(2 dctog, 1dc)* repeat from *to * around, ss to join in first dc (12sts)

Round 20 Decrease round , Ch1, *(2 dc2tog,)* repeat from *to * around, ss to join in first dc (6sts) Fasten off cream work a couple of stitches to secure the end of your yarn and cut it leaving about 4cm, post the end of the yarn inside the bauble and replace the top. If you want to secure the top use a fabric glue or glue gun to attach.

To make your berries: make 2, Round 1 Ch2, 6dc in 2nd ch from your hook, ss to join in first dc (6sts) Round 2 Ch1, dc in every st around, ss to join, cut yarn leaving a long length of yarn to thread through the last round, pull up tightly and fasten off. To make your Holly leaves: make2 ,Ch 8, ss, in 2nd & 3rd ch from hook, *(htr, in next st, ch2, ss in 2nd ch from hook (makes the point of your holly) ss in base of htr),* ss in next st, repeat from *to *, ss, in next st, work from * to* in the last stitch, turn and work down the opposite side of your chain like a mirror image , ss, in next st, work from * to* in next st, ss in next st, work from * to * in next st , fasten off and weave in your ends or leave a length of yarn to attach .

Granny Square goes Diagonal 💗

Diagonal Granny Square

There’s so many ways to do this pattern and believe me I’ve tried quite a few. It’s a fun design and very versatile, I’m including some basic instructions for making it into a square. Just like a traditional corner to corner blanket it can be shaped into a oblong by not decreasing evenly on both sides. When I first made my square I hadn’t yet decided on wether or not I’d add a border, so when I did decide to add the border I needed to change my design slightly to allow the corners to be added with ease . Here’s how I made my square and I will be adding a more detailed pattern to my Etsy shop soon. If you want to make it into a blanket, complete more rows and decrease in the same way as my motif.

Free patterns are written in my spare time and not nearly as detailed as patterns in my Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewHappyCreative I have included as many photos to help you and there’s pattern notes below. I hope you have fun making your granny squares diagonally. Happy crocheting 🧶

You are welcome to sell your finished creations made from my pattern, you may not copy, share, reproduce in any way including video tutorials or sell the pattern itself and we kindly ask that you link to our Etsy shop if selling online https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewHappyCreative ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020 So let’s get started you will need to be familiar with the following stitches.

Row 1 Ch7, into the 5th chain from your hook 3tr, sk 1ch, 1tr, in last stitch, turn.

Row 1 ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020

Using the photo below to guide you, Row 2 Ch3 (counts as tr), 3tr in space before 3tr group , 4tr in space after 3tr group, turn. Row 3 ch3 (counts as tr), 3tr, in sp next to ch3, 3tr in next sp, 4tr in last sp. Row 4 7 ch3 (counts as tr), 3tr, in sp next to ch3, 3tr in next 2sp’s, 4tr in last sp. Continue working ch3( counts as tr) 3tr in sp next to ch3, 3tr in spaces between and 4tr in last sp, see photo . You can make your square as large or small as you like using this method. To make your square like mine continue to Row 8

Round 2 onwards ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020

To decrease your square Row 8 Ch3 (counts as tr) skip 4tr group from previous row and work 3tr in next sp and every sp, at the end of your row, work 1tr in the top of your ch3 from previous row, continue working Ch3, sk first 3tr group, 3tr in next and every sp, at the end of your row, work 1tr in the top of your ch3 from previous row, just as you did before. turn and repeat round 8 until you have completed to Row 13, at the end of this row, Ch2, turn and ss into your beg ch-3, this creates a small loop to make the corner when you add a border.See photo below. To add a border work (2htr, ch1, 2htr,) in each corner and 3 htr in the row ends between treble or beg ch3,

Row 13 ch-2, ss into beg ch-3. ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020

To work a multi coloured square, change colour on every row by completing your final part of your stitch from the previous row with your new shade, use a reef knot at the end of each row and sew in your ends after you complete the border, this way, you can crochet over the top of your yarn ends and weave them neatly into the border edge. Have fun and enjoy getting creative 💗🌈🧶. ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020

My Rainbow Sunflower is made using my sunflower granny square motif which is free here on my blog page https://sewhappycreativeuk.wordpress.com/2019/07/20/sunflower-inspired-granny-square-motif/ or available in my Etsy shop as a handy pdf pattern https://www.etsy.com/uk/SewHappyCreative/listing/708889306/sunflower-granny-square-crochet-pattern? To make your rainbow sunflower complete exactly as Rounds 1 & 2, of the pattern .

Round 3 You will need to fasten off each shade as you go and weave in your yarn ends and believe me there’s a lot of yarn to weave in 🙈,the petals are worked all as the original pattern with an extra ch1 when you join in your new shade. Choose whichever colour you like to start your first petal and work the first petal exactly as Round 3 of the pattern, then ch2, as the pattern, pull your next shade through the loop to join, ch1, with your new shade for your petal, fasten off your shade from your previous petal and tie a little knot to secure it, ( I’m not a fan of knotting yarn but needs must for this project ), complete your petal as the pattern, ch2, as the pattern and join in your next shade by pulling a loop though and ch1, knot to secure. Repeat this until all 12 petals are complete remembering to weave in your ends as you go. My yarn that I knot at the top I weave along the chain and diagonally across the back of my petals to fasten off. There’s some photos below to help guide you .Each petal takes about 1metre of yarn so handy to use up small amounts. Happy Rainbow Crocheting 🧶🌈

Sunflower Star Coaster

I absolutely adore sunflowers and plant some in my garden every year, I thought it would be fun to make a little sunflower coaster to brighten up my patio table during the summer months. They take no time at all to make and are perfect for using up small amounts of yarn from your stash. They look fab in all shades and you could try bright pinks and mustard or for a beach themed set of coasters blues and soft pink and brown shades. Enjoy getting creative, with different colours, happy crocheting best wishes Fiona xx

Granny Rainbow 🌈

During the Coronavirus pandemic rainbows have become a symbol of hope and thanks to key workers. There have been some truly wonderful rainbows drawn by children and displayed in windows and on doors during lockdown, they have cheered people up as they pass by and helped keep us all positive. I hope my granny rainbow will make you and others smile as you make it and share in your windows afterwards.

Here’s how I made mine. It’s based on a traditional granny in the round mandala and then folded in half afterwards, I used a round of dc to join my circle, and added a little loop on my last round to hang it up by. It’s a really simple little pattern and easily adjusted by the number of rounds you work to get the size you like. Try working in 4ply for a smaller version or adding a picot edge on the final round. We recommend reading all pattern notes before starting the pattern.

Pattern notes : I flipped my circle after each round and worked my rounds RS & WS. Ch 3 at the beginning of every round counts as treble throughout the pattern. Ch 1 is worked between 3tr groups unless otherwise stated. Change your shades on every two rounds or every round. I used Stylecraft dk classique cotton in shades Fondant, Ivory, Peppermint, Soft Lime, Saffron, Shrimp, Wisteria and Pomegranate. Any Dk yarn will do, raid your sash and let’s get started. ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020 My pattern is written in Uk English crochet terms with US terms in brackets in the key.

Round 5 Ch3 (counts as tr), 3tr, in same sp , *4tr, in the next sp,* repeat from * to * around ss to join into beg ch-3sp. Flip your rainbow over.(RS) ( 16 x 4 tr groups)

Round 6, 7, 8, 9 Repeat Round 4, changing shades as desired and joining where you finished your last round, remembering to flip your rainbow over for each round. All the treble groups have ch1 between them, if you find your circle is curling add an extra ch between your groups as your circle should be flat, you will fold in half later and join it together with a round of dc.

Round 10 & 11 As Round 4 but with ch2 between each treble group.

Round 12 As Round 5. After Round 12 make sure all your yarn ends are sewn in before completing your Rainbow 🌈

Round 13 To complete your rainbow fold it in half making sure all your treble groups match, I tacked 4 of my rounds together to make it stay in place while I completed my joining round. Dc both sides together matching your 4 treble groups, turn, work a second row of dc to complete your rainbow if you want to hang it up, add a loop on this round at the centre of your rainbow by chaining 6, dc into the chain and ss over it. This way you won’t have to break of your yarn, ss either side of your loop before completing the row. Fasten off, weave & stitch in yarn ends.

Granny Hexagon Love

In these uncertain times I’ve so enjoyed the simple things in life and crochet is no exception. My granny hexagon is relaxing and soothing to make. It can made with as many rounds as you like, by adding just a few rounds to make a small motif for joining into a blanket or make as a much larger hexagon like mine, that I’m making into a summer cushion for my garden bench. I’ve used Stylecraft classique cotton dk, but any dk yarn will do. It’s a fab fun way to use up your stash too. The pattern below follows a traditional granny square stitch but instead of using 3tr group stitches together I’ve used just 2tr groups stitches, there’s also an alternative method at the bottom of the pattern for using treble cluster stitch which gives a very pretty effect but you will need to remember to add a chain stitch between your 2 treble cluster stitches . ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020 For my patterns pop over to our Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/SewHappyCreative

You will need:
4mm hook
Used Stitches:
UK English. US abbreviations below in brackets.
ch = chain
ss = slip stitch
tr = treble (US double crochet
sp = space space
sk st. = skip skip
beg = beginning. beginning
2trcl = 2 treble cluster see notes below ( US 2 double crochet cluster) RS = Right side WS = wrong side

2 treble cluster stitch: (Yoh, insert hook into magic loop or ring, yoh and pull through a loop, yoh and pull through 2 loops,) twice, yoh pull through remaining 3 loops on hook.

Pattern notes: To keep your hexagon flat and minimise the need for blocking, I have flipped my hexagon over after each round, alternating each round from RS and WS rounds, start each new round with the change of colour in a different corner to the previous round, and from where you fastened off . This will keep that back of your work neat and less bulky as sewing in your yarn ends will be evenly distributed on the back.

Foundation Round: using a 4mm hook, make a magic loop or ch5, ss to join in to a ring.(RS))


Round 1 In the magic loop or ring, ch3 (counts as tr), 1tr, ch1, (2trcl, ch1,) 5 times, ss to join to beg ch- 3, fasten off. (6trcl groups, 6 x ch-1sp’s) flip your hexagon over as described in my pattern notes above. (RS)


Round 2 Attach a new colour yarn in any ch-1sp of previous round, ch3 (counts as tr), 1tr, ch1, 2tr, in same ch-1sp, (2tr, ch1, 2tr,) in each ch-1sp, around, ss to join into beginnings ch-3, fasten off. Flip your hexagon over. (WS)

Round 3 Attach a new colour yarn in any ch-1 space of round 2, ch3 (counts as tr), 1tr, ch1, 2tr, in same ch-1sp, 2tr, in the next sp, (2tr, ch1, 2tr,) in next ch-1 sp, 2tr, in next sp repeat from * to * around ss to join into beg ch-3sp. Flip your hexagon over.(RS)

Round 4 Attach a new colour yarn in any ch-1 space of round 3, ch3 (counts as tr), 1tr, ch1, 2tr, in same ch-1sp, 2tr, in each of next 2 sp’s, (2tr, ch1, 2tr,) in next ch-1sp , 2tr, in each of next 2 sp’s, repeat from * to * to complete the round, ss to join into beg ch-3. Flip hexagon over.(WS)

Round 5 Continue as round 4 by working (2tr, ch1, 2tr,) in every ch-1sp and 2tr in every space between, remembering to flip your hexagon after each round.

Alternate way to make your hexagon like mine below is to work exactly as the Foundation round and round 1 above, then for Round 2 instead of working (2tr, ch1, 2tr,) in each ch-1sp, work ( 2trcl, ch2, 2trcl,) ch1, and 2trcl, ch1, in every sp between, flip your hexagon as above. Continue working 2trcl, ch1, in place of all 2tr, in the spaces between and (2trcl, ch2, 2trcl) in each ch-1p instead of (2tr, ch1, 2tr,) ©Copyright SewHappyCreative 2020
