So I think I have been super diligent in my crochet physio… I’ve been doing it every day, and I’m feeling much improved!
As an added bonus, I have created a whole heap of new, beautiful things!
I modified this pattern: http://blog.hobbycraft.co.uk/twinkle-toes-the-unicorn-crochet-pattern/ to make Quinn and I made a crochet scarf and tail bow for her too!
The bow pattern I got from this YouTube video from Pinterest: https://au.pinterest.com/pin/371195194272179528/
For the scarf, I just made a chain the length I wanted and then placed a single crochet around the edges (up the long, across the short back to the beginning) and then put a little fringe on it. There are plenty of other ways to make toy scarves, Pinterest if your friend! haha 😉
I also tried my hand at some play food! My 4yo son LOVES these!

I had time for a Mini Mermaid too!
This Mini Mermaid was a little bit confusing with the translation but easy enough to follow (just open in your browser and translate the page) http://blog.blackhatllama.com/2015/08/mermaid-free-pattern/
- 10 sc in a magic ring.
- * 5 ch, in the 2nd stitch from the needle of 1 sl st, in the following 3 stitches each 1 sc, 1 hdc and 1 dc, skip 1 sc and fasten with 1 sl st in the next sc space. *
Repeat from * to * x4.
- sc = single crochet
- ch = chain
- sl st = slip stitch
- hdc = half double crochet
- dc = double crochet

And lastly…. I started on this mammoth floor rug using t-shirt yarn!
THIS one has been a bit more challenging on my wrist, and thus, has taken longer to complete than I would’ve liked! Slow and steady and all that!!! 😉 😀 But it’s looking good and feels pretty sturdy and the t-shirt yarn is soft but weird to work with! 😉 haha (the first time I’ve worked with t-shirt yarn)
I used this pattern, which is pretty simple!
After round 6, I just continued the pattern by increasing the “dc in next 4 dc” to a 5 dc, then 6 dc etc each time I started a new round.
So it looks like crochet for everyone for Christmas this year! 😀 😉 hahaha
If you have any questions about this post, please feel free to ask and I shall try my very best to answer or point you in the right direction! 😀
