A new blanket and Bellossom

Hey hey crochet lovers. I hope your 2018 is getting off to a good start. I’m keeping up with my creative resolution so far and this has been a busy week of crafting – assembling a new display shelf counts, doesn’t it?

Part one of the Solar System blanket CAL is underway

Before Christmas I signed up to the new Solar System Blanket CAL by Two Hearts Crochet, and the first part of the pattern dropped this week. This is a bit different to most crochet-alongs, with its geeky theme and in-the-round construction – both of which suit me down to the ground. I’ve made a good start on the first part, and with a weekly release schedule on new sections, I don’t want to fall behind!

Bellossom is a joyful little creature

My ticked off, completed project of the week is an adorable Bellossom Pokemon I started on New Year’s Day. The pattern for this doll is from Sabrina Somers, who also designed the Hoppip and Pikachu patterns I have made previously. I think her patterns are excellent as they’ve got a great cuddly feel to them and represent the intended Pokemon very accurately – a key criteria for me.

Bellossom in all her beauty

There are quite a few elements to this one with all the leaves and petals, but none of those elements are very complex, so it’s an easy enough pattern for someone with a couple of Amigurumi under their belt.

Pattern: Free from https://www.sabrinasomers.com/amigurumi/crochet-pattern-bellossom/

Yarn: Pale green Wendy cotton DK, bold green and yellow RICO cotton DK, Sirdar red cotton DK
