Deramores | Wood Green Dutch Bunnies

Hey folks, hope you are all well, I’ve got an ear-resistibly cute pattern to share with you today, some cute Dutch Bunnies! These little guys make me so hoppy!

This pattern is another pet included in the Deramores partnership and Wood Green, The Animal Charity – you may remember I previously designed the Wood Green Deradog.

The partnership has been designed to bring crafting communities together to support animals in need. Wood Green is a pet charity that makes a difference to the lives of pets and people across the UK.  As a charity they help rehome pets into loving homes and also educate and supports pet owners, so that they can enjoy a mutually rewarding and happy relationship with their pets.

With every purchase Deramores will donate 50% of the RRP, excluding VAT, from the sale of the crafting pattern and 10% of the RRP from the sale of the crafting kit is paid to Wood Green Enterprises Limited, who covenants all its taxable profits to Wood Green, The Animals Charity – registered charity number 298348.

Easily identifiable by there characteristic colour patterns these little bunnies are ready to be ad-hop-ted! Essentially, Dutch Bunnies are a white rabbit, with a colored base coat like black, brown, grey or tortoiseshell.

For my little Dutch Bunnies I used Deramores Studio DK in Frost (White), Chocolate and Gingerbread with a 3mm hook. But it would be easy to match your own pet colour if that’s something you wanted to try, as there are lots of different natural shades, in the Studio DK range, to choose from.

If you aren’t familiar with Deramores Studio DK it’s 100% acrylic anti-piling yarn which is fab for any projects that might see a lot of wear and tear – like cuddly bunnies!

Crochet Pattern Release & Discount Code| Battenburg Bunny

Hey folks, how you all doing out there? Today has felt like a looooonnnggg day! So in an aim to focus on more positive things, I’ve got a brand new pattern release for you today! Meet the Batternburg Bunny, she’s as sweet as marzipan and some’bunny’ you should really get to know better!

Do you like Battenburg cake? It’s one of my eldest girls favourites, but I think marzipan in a bit like marmite isn’t it, you either love it or loathe it!

This is one of those designs that I had around at least a year ago which popped up into my head again, and then I couldn’t shake it, I really wanted to try and combine some tapestry crochet and amigurumi to make something new!

She’s a fun project to make, and really not too tricky once you get into the flow of things.

I was actually going to call this bunny the Patchwork bunny until one of my friends suggested it looked like a Battenburg cake and then it just had to be the name!

My bunny is made from Scheepjes Catona that I’d got in my stash (I have a lot of Catona in my stash! You may have noticed it’s one of my favourite yarns to use for amigurumi), but the pattern will work with other yarns.

The 6 page Battenburg Bunny pattern is now on sale over on Ravelry (available in UK and US terms).


In fact if you are looking for something to do I’ve put ALL my patterns on sale in my Ravelry store until 3 April 2020. Just enter code: LOCKDOWN for a discount off all patterns you add to your basket.

I hope you’ll tag on Instagram or share your projects on Ravelry or my Facebook page as I love to see your finished work! Happy Crocheting!

Until next time folks! Happy hooking and keep calm and crochet on my friends xx


Crochet Now Magazine | Tulio the Toucan

Have you picked up the latest issue of Crochet Now magazine? The new colourful issue hit the shelves on 12 April and I’ve got a brand new pattern featured inside. See that cute little toucan on the front cover, well that’s my Tulio.


Nature is a constant source of inspiration for my designs and, although I’ve been designing for awhile now, a toucan was on my (long) list of creatures I wanted to try and crochet. 


Birds are such a wonderful subjects to recreate in yarn as they often have such wonderful colouring. They also lend themselves so well to a bit of creative licence; I love rainbows too so the combination of the rainbow beak makes me feel very happy.


Now you may notice, if you have the magazine, that there is a picture reference to the right side and wrong side of crochet, unfortunately there was a ‘layout error’ and the images were swapped, picture 1 is the wrong side and picture 2 is the right side and it should have been the right way around.

I know a couple of people contacted me asking about it and, don’t worry you haven’t been crocheting wrong, it was just a little mix up and the magazine has passed on their apologies for any confusion. 


I really enjoyed leafing through my copy of Issue 27 as it’s is such a lovely bright edition! Along with Tulio the Toucan there’s tons of fabulous patterns, inspiration, offers, giveaways and interesting articles to read – and this issue also comes with a super fun fun addition to your crochet kit;  a sparkly unicorn hook gauge.

Crochet Now magazine is available in major supermarkets and newsagents across the UK.  If you hook up Tulio the Toucan be sure to share your photos with me on social media (facebooktwitter or instagram) – I love to see what your finished projects! 

Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx



LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine | Isabella Bunny and Bow Tie

Anyone else just longing for Spring? It’s been so cold here recently that it’s been distinctly unpleasant to even go outside! Now it’s March I’m beginning to feel that we are heading out of winter and onto warmer days filled with Spring lambs, chicks, Easter eggs and bunnies! So I was super exited to see the lovely and bright new LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine (on sale now) with my sweet and stripy Isabella Bunny as the cover star! 


The fun amigurumi pattern will help you to create a wonderful crochet bunny with interesting striped details.  She has a removable fluffy dress and of course is wearing underwear to preserve some of her modesty! And you can use the length of free pink ribbon tied around her ear to finish off the project,


As well as Isabella Bunny I worked on the most fun pattern imaginable! Who in their lifetime gets to say that they’ve designed a bow tie for a rabbit! Well I can now claim that moniker and I couldn’t be more pleased! I adore how Reeces the rabbit looks in his smart formal wear – all dressed up ready for Spring. Of course humans could wear the bow tie too but you’ve got to admit it looks awesome on the bunny!


The free yarn kit with issue 99 includes six lovely bright colours:

  • Six hoppy yarns…including a special yellow fluffy yarn and pink ribbon!
  • 4.5 mm hook & 4.5 mm knitting needles
  • 47 exclusive patterns
  • Plus… a 68 page magazine

LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine is available in major supermarkets and newsagents across the UK.  If you hook up either Isabella Bunny or the Bow Tie be sure to share your photos with me on social media (facebooktwitter or instagram) – I love to see what you make! So why not hop to it and get your copy of the magazine now! 

Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
