Weight-lifting Amrigurumi Bear: Chubby Bear Crochet Pattern


The new crochet pattern for the weight-lifting bear is available. The bear is for my husband: to remind him to exercise. The bear is called "Chubby Bear" and the pattern is sold on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and Kobobooks. It will soon be available on Google Play, Barnes & Noble and the iBookstore.

The pattern includes how to make the barbells and the base.




I will stop selling PDF patterns on Etsy, Craftsy, Ravelry and Dawanda soon. The reason are the new European Union VAT rules. They're so complicated that I'd rather sell my patterns elsewhere. I'm looking at selling my PDF patterns at Loveknitting.com

Hat and Cowl


The hat and cowl patterns are from Crocodile Stitch Fashions : Amazon.com

For the cowl: I used the neck warmer pattern in the book and made it till the length I wanted, then sew the first and last rows together to make the cowl.

Tudor Rose Necklace

My son has Tudor Banquet at school tomorrow. He would like to have a jewellery to go with his costume. I crocheted this Tudor Rose necklace for him.

I used metallic yarn to crochet around plastic rings to make a chain.
