Easter Weekend...

Monday, 6 April 2015
So how was your Easter weekend?  It was a busy one here at HOW HQ! We had Easter egg hunts, a spring clean, family visits and getting your orders done.  As well as that we managed to get a new crochet pattern up just for you.  This is another FREE one (Don't say we aren't good to you!)  Inspired by all the delicious food we consumed over the past week I give to you.... 

....the macaroon necklace.  This super quick statement necklace is the perfect way to update your wardrobe for summer.  Whip up a fresh batch in assorted colours using your yarn scraps.  These could also be used to make a macaroon collar, bracelet or brooch.  The possibilities are endless! So head over to our Craftsy store now and download your free printable PDF pattern.  

All of our downloadable patterns are super simple and are written in US crochet terms.  All of our patterns are also on 1 sheet of A4 paper where possible to save paper & ink! :)

Can't crochet and need your very own macaroon accessories? Then get in touch right here and we shall sort you out :) If you do make these send us over a picture as we love to see your creations :)

Have a glitter filled day Wonderlanders!

Make your very own crochet teething rings!

Saturday, 4 April 2015
This week has been a super busy week here at HOW HQ with lots of custom orders and potting and planning going on behind the scenes. (mwahhh ha ha ha) One of the makes from this week are these set of 3 wooden teething rings.

The teething rings are made from organic natural ash wood and coated in beeswax.  I sourced these from a responsible online retailer which plants another tree for everyone cut down. YAY!

So here they are....
fancy making your own? Scroll down for the free pattern :)

To make your very own you will need:

-Wooden teething rings,
-Oddments of DK yarn,
-3mm Crochet Hook,
-Scissors & Needle.

*This pattern is worked into the back loop only.*
1. Chain 31 stitches,
2. Skip the first stitch. Work 1 single crochet into every stitch across.(30) Chain 1.
3. Repeat row 2 for a total of 6 times. Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.
4. Hold your crocheted strip over the teether. (you may need to pull a little, you want a tight fit) Whip stitch closed to secure.
And ta dahhh! It's that simple.  I had a fiddle working this design in various yarns and hook sizes but found this method to give the best fit.   

These would make a fab little gift for any chomping little dude or dudette. Can't crochet and NEEEEED these? Then get in touch right here and we shall sort you out :) If you do make them send us over a picture as we love to see your versions :)

Have a glitter filled day Wonderlanders!
