A Few Changes

Happy New Year all! Hope you had a good one. Just a quick update to let you know a few things.
Having discovered a better way of doing the chainless foundation row. I will be updating both my posts on this in the coming weeks.
I now have a Facebook page! Search SweetHomebody and you should find me there. I’d love it if you’d like my page. I will put up a link as soon as I figure out how!
Finally, I fully intend to be around much more this year so here’s to lots of hooky fun!

I am currently making a cushion cover out of some hexagons I made last summer from the left over Stylecraft yarn from my granny stripe. I couldn’t find a solid hexi pattern, that fitted with what I had in mind so after a few attempts I came up with this and I’m really pleased with how it has turned out.
Using 4mm hook uk terms
●Chain 4 and join to form a ring.
●Ch3 then make 11tr into the ring join with ss.
●Ch3, tr ch2 tr into next stitch, tr in next st, *tr ch2 tr in next st, tr in next st* repeat from * to * 4 times join to initial ch3. (3tr on each side)
●Ch3, tr in next st, *tr ch 2 tr in ch2 corner space, tr in each of next 3 st*, repeat * to * 5 times. Join. (5tr on each side)
●Ch3, tr in next 2 st, tr ch2 tr in ch2 space. tr in top of each stitch tr ch2 tr in corner spaces. Repeat around. (7tr on each side)
Join.
●Ch3, tr in each stitch then tr ch2 tr in each corner space. Join and finish off
(9tr on each side).

Teeny tiny crochet heart

I wanted to make a little crochet heart, as you do, but being unable to fid a pattern I made my own. Now I haven’t found this pattern published anywhere else but if you do please let me know and I’ll link to it. It’s only fair after all!

So here goes. UK terms as usual. Using dk and 4mm hook.

Starting with a magic ring, make 6 dc in to the ring. Pull to close the loop and join to 1st dc.

Ch1, into next stitch do htr 2tr, then tr hrt dc, htr tr htr, dc htr tr, 2tr htr, ss to ch1.
