Interview: Thistle Dubh Ewe

I had the pleasure of going to Perth Festival of Yarn at the start of September, and I met a wonderful and inspiring bunch of people, including Louise from Thistle Dubh Ewe. Lou is a 45-year-old Scot, which are two facts that are very important to know about her. “It informs everything I am and everything I do, including my business. And my age? Well, I’ve reached that point in my life where I’m finally pretty comfortable in my own skin; happy with my choices and the person I’ve become. Not an easy place to get to.”

Make a Hat Day: Reversible Pom Puff Hat

Happy Make a Hat Day, crocheters! Free for the next week, is my Reversible Pom Puff Hat. I had great fun making it, and it doesn’t take much time at all.

The Reversible Bobble Hat is made to fit the average adult head – there is a certain amount of give in the yarn, so should fit all.

You will need:

King Cole Timeless Chunky (or any Chunky yarn will do!)
1x Rosebud (A)
1x Peppercorn (B)
7mm hook
Pom pom maker (or cardboard)

Available to download on LoveCrafts | Etsy | Ravelry

 

 

Coming Soon: Updates and Upcoming things!

Hey all, it’s been a mad few months working full time and studying for my Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing, and I am pleased to say I passed my exam on Thursday with 74%. Hurrah!

So now I have a bit of time to apply these new learned skills to Crochet Bouquet, and I’ve got some fun and exciting things coming up.

Christmas Tree

Kits!

I’ve noticed that my Christmas Tree pattern is the most popular, and with Christmas coming up I’ve put together some kits to sell, which will be up on Etsy in the next few days. Included is the tinsel, some decorations (little wooden ones) and the yarn for the tree and the star (but also a little wooden star if you don’t fancy making it!) I’ve only got a handful at the moment, but if they go well I’ll definitely be making some more!

I was also talking to a lady at a craft fair and she said she would like to see some kits for beginners, a basic scarf, hat and mittens sort of things, so I shall be designing and making up a couple over the next month and hopefully get these up soon.

Christmas Cards

Both to buy made and to make yourself. I’m in the process of designing them and writing up the patterns, so the patterns should be available in the next couple of weeks, followed by some kits to make your own as well! I’ll also we working on some floral designs as well over the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for those! There is a quick peak below at one of the designs!

Reindeer Card

Tutorials

Along with the beginner kits, I am going to start putting up some how-to videos, starting with the basic stitches, and then ranging into the more fun and complicated stuff, so if there is anything you want to see, let me know by sending me an email, or sending me a tweet or Instagram message (Links on the side!)

Advent 2018!

After an accident put a halt on Advent last year, I plan on doing a Christmas Blanket Crochet Along for advent! There will be a square a day, probably worked in a chunky yarn, with some motifs and things, but I am currently working on it and coming up with the motifs!
