Hello my lovely friends and readers! Summer has finally arrived here in North Wales, and as I was just catching a ray or two in my garden over a cup of tea, I thought what a perfect time this would be to introduce you to my latest FREE Pattern…


…Grannies Summer Folly – A Crochet Basket!

What do you think? Do you like it? I do so hope you do and might want to make one too. It’s really not difficult…no honestly, even a beginner can achieve it. Every detail on how to make it is included in the pattern, and I am sure you all have a ball of yarn…or two…that would be perfect for this project. It really truly is a fairly quick project that can easily be made over a weekend…maybe whilst sitting in the summer sunshine in your garden or local park.

This is how it all started…

One day I was playing around with colour and the traditional granny square…


…I made twenty seven of them and thought “What next”! That’s when the idea of a summer basket struck me, so I continued…


…and the whole time I was enjoying myself and getting just a little excited, and then I finished…


…and I am loving it!!

Immediately I thought that you will love it to, and that you might like to make one. So today I want to give you the opportunity to make your very own Grannies Summer Folly basket, because we all need a little folly in our lives now and again…don’t you think!

You can download the pattern, which contains everything you need to know, by simply clicking HERE!

I hope you will make one and share it with me by sending me a photo to my e-mail (in the right hand side bar), so that maybe I can share it in a post at a later date.

My basket is going on a lovely summery trip this weekend…I will tell you all next time.

Enjoy!ย X.
