My Favourite Crochet Things - International Crochet Day 2016 | blog post by Homelea Lass


What’s not to love about International Crochet Day? I love nothing more than sitting down and creating with my crochet hook and I love that it has it’s own special day on September 12.

I’ve started a little bit of a tradition on International Crochet Day where I share my favourite crochet things (here’s my favourites from ย 2013 and 2014).

So here are my favourite crochet things in 2016.


Addi Swing Crochet Hooks

I’ve been crocheting with these babies for a couple of years now and I love their ergonomic feel. I first discovered them after getting pain in my hands and arms from too much crochet and now I’m able to crochet all day long with them.

I also love that they’re all different colours and range in size from 0.5mm (teeny, teeny, tiny!) through to 8mm.


My Uncommon Beauty Cowl Crochet Pattern

Uncommon Beauty Cowl Crochet Pattern | by Homelea Lass

Earlier on in the year I was squishing some yarn that had been naturally dyed for me and I was hit with a flash of inspiration for a cowl design.

It became my Uncommon Beauty Cowl and it is the perfect combination of warmth and softness.

I love how the colours and textures are unusual and intriguing.

This has been my go-to cowl this winter because it keeps the cold winter winds off my neck.


Silver Lining Merino Wool Yarn

I feel in love with Silver Lining when I knittedย my first jumper with it. It feels so soft, squishy and warm. Ahhhh yarn heaven.

I also love that it’s fully grown and made in New Zealand from coloured wool. It celebrates a line of merino sheep that are rare and geographically separate – it’s a very special yarn.
