September Favourites


I reposted the Solaris sweater from @thenewmoondesigns on @crochetgirlgang because, look at it, right? Isn’t it amazing? What a talent Luisa is and I love that she has a moon-themed shop and name. I love all her designs and colour palettes which you can find in her Etsy shop here.

There are so many amazing CALs running at the moment (see last month’s lust list), and just after I hit publish on that post this new CAL from Scheepjes designed by Tatsiana @lillabjorncrochet came out.

Lovely, huh?

This midnight colour way is my absolute favourite but there are tons of other more colourful options and you can find all the yarn packs and colours here.

Vintage Waves

If you follow me on instagram, you will know that I am finally (only after eight years of crocheting), making my first pair of crochet socks.

I was tempted by Clarisabeth’s @crochetcakes lovely free Vintage Waves sock pattern which she showed off in a recent podcast. I just love the way the waves are created from such a simple stitch pattern. Clarisabeth uses a very short striping yarn which I didn’t have in my stash so I copied Tamara @craftyescapism and striped my with two different colours of Cascade Heritage.

You can find the pattern for free at

I also love this taroko pattern from @nomadstitches.

I first saw the design when @madebyhaileybailey posted her test version which is fab.u.lous.

I really want to carve out some time to attempt something like this, I expect it really feels wonderful to see the patterns coming to life as you hook away.

You can find the pattern on Ravelry or via


And finally, if you’re looking for a quick and easy cowl project that’s a perfect present hook (erm, Christmas anyone), then look no further than my callie cowl which now comes as a free written pattern, available here and now as a video tutorial too which you can watch here. What makes the pattern so great is the fact that it hooks up ridiculously quickly (yay for super chunk yarn y’all), and at the same time looks a lot more difficult than it actually is. Who doesn’t love that?

I hope your September was as productive and fabulous as mine, I always get a big surge of energy at this time of year, honestly I could happily live in a world made up of only Septembers and Octobers.

Have fun with your yarn this month, be creative and happy and I’ll see you at the end of October, happy crocheting yo!
