Vacation and huge discounts

Pin It


These are two new additions to my security blanket patterns. They are available in my Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry stores.  

Also I am taking a break from blogging and crocheting till the end of June. I am leaving tomorrow to visit my parents and relatives and will be back by the end of next month. So far I haven't planned on taking any crochet stuff along but tomorrow at the last moment I might pack something because I am not sure if I could survive 40 whole days without crocheting. 

Now moving on to the best part, when I'm gone you'll be able to enjoy 50% discount on all my patterns purchased from my Etsy and Ravelry shops. You have to use the coupon code OFF50 at the time of check out and your price will be automatically reduced to 50% of the original price. 

When you are buying on Etsy, add the pattern you wish to purchase to the cart. If you are purchasing more than one pattern, add them all to the cart. 


Then click "Apply shop coupon code" and type OFF50 in the box and click Apply. Your total price will be reduced by 50%. 

If you are purchasing from Ravelry add the pattern/patterns to your cart 


Then click "Use a coupon code"


Type out the coupon OFF50 in the box and click apply. Then when you checkout your price will be reduced. As mentioned earlier these discounts will be available till June 30. 

I hope I have explained everything in detail and you won't face any trouble since I won't be available to answer your questions for at least the next couple of weeks.

Also please not that the discount offer is available in The Lazy Hobbyhopper etsy shop and not in the Whimsical Little Fox shop. So if you want to purchase amigurumi patterns you can do so from my Ravelry shop.

In my Whimsical Little Fox shop I have a different form of discount which you can view by clicking on the link. 

Now off I'm going to enjoy my vacation. I hope you all have fun too.

Security blankets - new patterns

Pin It

I have been having problems with my internet connection for the past couple of days and I'm now working from a borrowed data card. So this is going to be a very short post. These are the new security blanket patterns available only in my Whimsical Little Fox Etsy shop for now. They will soon be available in my other shops too.

Have a great day!

Zigzag wrap - free pattern

Pin It

Here is the pattern for the wrap that I mentioned in my previous post. It is called the Zigzag wrap. I used light worsted weight/DK yarn and size G/4.00 mm crochet hook. This wrap needs careful blocking. I didn't do it properly. I wanted to photograph it before the natural light went out and so removed the pins even before it was completely dry. 


Zigzag Wrap
Materials required 
DK/light worsted weight yarns approximately 575 yards
Crochet hook size G/4.00 mm
(or)
any yarn and a suitable hook.

Size 
The wrap measures 60 inches long and 16 inches wide after blocking.

Betsy hat and a peek into my next free pattern

Pin It

Betsy is my latest hat pattern. I have written the pattern for adult size. It is worked using a heavier worsted weight yarn and size J/6.00 mm hook. The pattern can be purchased from my Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry shops.

Now moving on to other stuff, I have a free pattern for you which I will hopefully publish in my next post. But before you can get a glimpse of that I want to show you some pictures of flowers and tomatoes from my terrace garden (not actually a garden, we just have a few potted plants)




This is going to be my next free pattern...

Olivia scarf

Pin It



Before I introduce my new pattern I would like to thank you all for your lovely comments on my spring flower coasters. 

Olivia is my latest scarf pattern. It measures about 65 inches from tip to tip and about 11 inches wide in the middle.  The crescent shaped scarf is worked from tip to tip and you have endless colour options. I used 5 colours alternately for one and 2 shades of green for another. One half of the scarf is worked using dark green and the second half using 2 shades alternately.  I used sport weight yarn and size H/5.00 mm hook.    

The pattern is available in Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry stores.
