Marvel Graphghan Square #4 – The Incredible Hulk

This minimalist Hulk pattern I've made up is a little more cute than incredible. He doesn't look quite as fearsome as I was going for, but it's hard to work with only 20x20 pixels! I tried to stick as close as I possibly could to the traditional feel of the Hulk. Angry face. Black hair. … Continue reading Marvel Graphghan Square #4 – The Incredible Hulk

Square #3 of the Marvel Graphghan

After a bit of a wait, I finally have the third square ready! It's the weapon of choice for everyone's favourite Norse God, Thor's Hammer. We are mixing things up a little with this square by adding some burgundy and more muted tones. I want this blanket to just be a rainbow of colours once … Continue reading Square #3 of the Marvel Graphghan

Marvel C2C Graphghan Square #2

Hello again! I hope you all enjoyed the first square of my Marvel Graphghan, Iron Man (a personal favourite of mine). I'm still on a bit of a Civil War hype, so I'm going to run with it. Square #2 of the blanket will be Captain America's Shield! I wasn't totally sure how I wanted … Continue reading Marvel C2C Graphghan Square #2

Marvel + Yarn = Happiness

Hello everyone! I am starting something very special today, something I have been planning out for a long time. It seems fitting, what with Civil War coming out today for early viewings, to share this after so much planning. I've been in love with anything super hero and/or comic book related for a good chunk … Continue reading Marvel + Yarn = Happiness

New pattern released!

Finally, I've got this pattern written down. One of my worst habits as a knitter/crocheter is that I routinely make up patterns and never write them down, so I can never go back to them. I actually took the time with this pattern to test and size 6 different sizes! I have named this beanie … Continue reading New pattern released!

New month, new beanie

It's been a while. I have to say I've been in a bit of a yarn slump. To me, March is the beginning of Spring. Spring generally means the end of cold seasons, which means no more chunky squishy knits. Spring is so bittersweet for knitters and crocheters. Who doesn't love chirping birds and budding … Continue reading New month, new beanie

Chunky Puff Stitch Cowl – Free Pattern

I am back with another free pattern! This is actually so easy it's sad to believe I only came up with it now. I've never understood why some pattern designers try to sell patterns that are so easy. I personally don't think it is fair. This pattern took me maybe 10 minutes to figure out … Continue reading Chunky Puff Stitch Cowl – Free Pattern
