And a very happy December to you all. :0)
I cannot believe how long it has been since I posted here. I’ve been so caught up with the usual seasonal rush, and getting Christmas gift projects finsihed, that the time has just whizzed by.
The biggest project by far (ever, not this Christmas time or even this year!) has been the Stormtrooper Blanket.
I created this masterpiece from 625 little solid granny squares at 3 rounds per square (11 sts each side on the final round.) I used Stylecraft Yarns Special Double Knit in Black, White, Graphite and Silver. You find the yarns here.
If you’re crazy enough to want to try this one for yourself ;0) you can find the graph on Ravelry here for it.
The main reason I’m blogging today, is because I wanted to share this free pattern with you all.
If you’re a true Harry Potter fan I won’t need to explain what this is. But for those of you who have been living in a cave in recent years, this is a Golden Snitch Chocolate Orange Cover.
If you’re not a HP fan, then you probably have no interest in making this at all, unless you are lucky enough to know a HP fan! Smiles.
This is really a very simple Christmas project to make, and last year I created 5 of these.
They went down a treat!!
Anyway, here is the pattern for you all. Please do not sell the pattern or any part of it as your own. Copyright remains with me (Kernow Designs.) Including my photographs without prior permission.
You may sell your finished items but not the pattern. Please link back to me (or my blog) if you post pictures of your finished makes online. Thank you.
