I am very proud of it as it the first pattern I have written – so I hope you enjoy making it !

I designed the banana a while ago for a knitting competition, but I didn’t write the pattern out properly then. So when I came to writing up my notes, they were all a bit confusing, so it took a while to finally write it up. I have tested the pattern by knitting it out again and it doesn’t take too long to knit 🙂

Here is the link to my first ever pattern Cabled Banana Pattern !

I hope this will soon be one pattern among many 🙂

Happy banana knitting !

Sunbursts

I was reading Crochet Saved my Life (well I think that is where I read it) and this book suggested that using colourful yarn can boost your mood, so I though why not I will see if this works! So I bought a whole lot of Women’s Institute yarn from Hobbycraft because I think it has the nicest colour palette.

I love granny squares but I knew that I wanted to try something new, and I spotted a beautiful square called Sunburst and followed a pattern by Nittybits. The pattern is very easy to follow and I just love sunbursts ! Very addicted !

I started off by making one up fully and then I made a few of each colour in round round.

Once I had done round one, I moved on to round two. Just look at the colours! I just love looking at them in my plarn basket 🙂

I now have almost completed round three of all my sunbursts and will have 21 of each outer colour. I will do another post soon once I have all of them done! But for now just look at my pile of sunbursts at round two below and imagine how long it took me to get that far!
