Rainbow flower

I have always wanted to use our Rainbow Metro Collection - 24 perfectly graduated colours of the colourwheel - for more projects. This lovely Nicky Epstein crochet pattern is one of 8 motifs from the Medallion Medley pattern in Cocheting On the Edge. It is perfect for the rainbow yarn collection as is has 12 rounds of crochet - half the colour wheel. I am currently working on the blues and greens flower. I will put together a yarn kit for this one soon...

Benjamin's Bunny

My continued obsession with crochet saw me making this cute bunny rabbit for my son Ben for Christmas. It is the first project to use our new Lara Cameron range of fabrics with the colour-matched yarn. The pattern is from Erika Knight's "Essential Crochet" and has an adorable little pom pom cotton tail.

I have put together a kit which you can buy from our new shopping cart. It includes the yarn, fabric, wool top stuffing, ribbon and contrast yarn for the eyes (book with pattern is extra).
