Crochet Costers

For my boyfriend’s mums birthday I decided to make her some crochet costers as I love giving handmade gifts ☺️ 

These costers can be made to be super colourful like mine and they have a frilly outer edge that wraps around the mug or cup and helps to hold it in place whilst also looking cute! It gives the costers a floral appearance 🌻🌹 



To begin select some colours that you want to use! You can use as many or as little as you like and I will tell you below when to change them 

Round 1: 

  • Chain 4 
  • 13 tr into 4th chain from the hook (14 sts)
  • Slip stitch into final chain to join together
  • Join in new yarn and tie off old one 

Round 2: 

  • Chain 1 
  • *1dc, 2dc* rep to end 
  • Slip stitch into chain 1, add in new yarn, tie off old one 

Round 3: 

  • Chain 1 
  • *1dc, 1dc, 2dc* rep to end 
  • Slip St into chain 1, add in new yarn, tie off old one 

Round 4: 

  • Same as round 2 

Round 5: 

  • Chain 1 
  • *1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2dc* rep to end 
  • Slip stitch into chain 1, add in new yarn 

Round 6:

  • Chain 1 
  • *1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2dc* rep to end 
  • Slip stitch into chain 1, add in new yarn 

Round 7: 

  • Chain 1 
  • 1dc, 1dc, *2dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc rep from * to end 
  • Slip stitch into chain 1, add in petal yarn 

Petals: 

  • Chain 2, 4 tr into next 4 sts 
  • Chain 2, slip stitch into next St 
  • Chain 2, tr into same St as slip St 
  • 3 tr into next 3 sts, chain 2, slip stitch into next St 
  • Rep last 2 points all the way around to form the coster 

On the last 2 petals make them 1 tr smaller if the pattern doesn’t quite fit

Updates!!!

I know I havent posted anything in a while, I honestly just haven’t got around to writing the posts but i have been up to lots of crafty stuff lol 👏🏻✨ 

Here’s some old work I did for college that I thought woild be good to add: 


This was me experimenting with typography using knitting for a graphic design project. I used 2 unusual yarnsi had left over from my ‘project of the year’ (which i’m still working on). One of the yarns is called firecracker and it’s like fuzzy silk. And the other changed weight and I like to think it looks a bit like mermaid hair!!! 


Also here is a picture of a massive phonotrope I made for my 3D materials project. I crocheted some sunflowers and progressively added more and more petals to create a ‘blossoming’ effect when its animated. 

More updates to come soon!!! Merry christmas 🎄 🎅 ❄️

Crochet Crochet Shantay 💁🏻

For my birthday I got the amazing gift of last years Stylecraft crochet along project- Lily Pond 😊 

I’ve recieved all the wool and patterns to make this beautiful lily pond blanket: 


I would highly recommend taking part in one of these projects as each month they will send you new patterns and wool ( much like my other knitting project with the blanket). I also find the stylecraft wool very soft and easy to work with- plus its cheap!!!! 😵💸 

So, for a student like me with a budget who likes viberant colours and patterns, stylecraft is a godsend! 

I’ve just started working on my first panel and am looking forward to learning new techniques 💘
