This is my favorite granny heart! It’s an old pattern that I learned to make as a child. In the more conventional granny heart the arches are made in the chain spaces between the double crochet clusters. This one has them higher up, making the heart taller. See photo for comparison:
The Train Socks are cute, fun to make, and they stay on well on little, kicking legs! They look like they have train tracks on them, but that is not why they’re called train socks. Nor do you have to ride a train in order to wear them. The name refers to a very specific train ride! And it’s a sweet story …
Higgle has made her first ever written pattern and photo tutorial! She decided to share it for free here on the Snovej blog as a way to give thanks for the support and cheers she has received, or in her words; “a little gift to the wonderful friends and online crochet community, that inspire, teach, and make me smile and laugh every single day 🙂 “.
It’s my pleasure to introduce my first guest blogger, Donna Walker.
Donna has made some incredibly fun baskets by crocheting around bulky cords. When she showed a photo of the first one in the Snovej Circle, we went almost nuts! Several members have now tried their hands at this technique and Donna decided to write up a proper tutorial to help us out.
