Campanula Hat: A new colourwork knitting pattern

Hi everyone!

I know I’ve been a bit quiet on the knitting front lately but I promise you this one is worth the wait!

I’ve got a new knitting pattern for you!

Campanula Hat Knitting Pattern from HsHandcraftsThe Campanula HAT

Campanula is a new colour work knitting pattern to create a fun and quirky hat. You can change the colours to suit any personality. I started here with a traditional and stylish red, white, and blue colour combination but the fun combination of scallops and stripes mixes up this traditional combination and injects a load of fun into it!

Me-Made-May 2017

me-made-may'17

I Helen of https://hshandcrafts.wordpress.com (Instgram @hshandcrafts) sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’17. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made item of clothing for each day in May 2017 with non sneaky cop-outs like scarves, unlike last year.

It’s that time of year again!!

Me Made May is the creation of ‘So Zo…’ . It is a brilliant endeavour to encourage people who sew/knit/crochet/refashion/upcycle garments for themselves to wear and love them more. If you want to find out more about it there is a great page and sign up sheet over on her blog.

Last year was the first time I participated in the me-made-may challenge. I pledged to wear something me-made everyday. It was really fun but quite tricky with only one year of sewing under my belt so I think there were a couple of cop-out days where I counted my pyjamas or an accessory or two. Now I have a more extensive wardrobe I will be fully committed this year and am determined to wear at least one item of me-made attire every day for the duration of may.

As I did last year I will be keeping a daily log of the me-made items I am wearing each day of May over on Instagram so if you want to follow me and my challenge that’s where to do it.
