Crochet Vagina

Hopefully you’ve read the above warning! I was talking with a friend who is a midwife about how upset people get over body parts such as breasts (there was an upsurge in angry Facebook posts a while back).

Unicorn Basket

Remember that project I took apart in this post? I used the leftovers and a tiny bit more to make this cutie. The pattern is free! Yarn is Drops Paris (100% cotton, Aran weight) with the recommended hooks for the pattern. The flowers were harder to do than I thought they would be, I must admit! Think I’m going to…

Ribbed Hat

For my other half’s birthday I decided to make him something and as it was getting cold – I thought a hat and scarf set would be ideal. Let’s ignore the fact that he doesn’t really feel the cold. I was stuck between a cable hat and a ribbed hat but with some careful questioning I found out that he…
