DON'T BLINK.


Don’t even blink. Blink and you’re dead.

After looking at a few patterns I wasn't 100% happy with any of them ... so I made my own.

Free Pattern Tiny Crochet Xmas Wreath


 Perfect as a tree decoration using oddments, or for leaving little seaonal  yarnbombs around your town

For the pictures I used an Aran weight (worsted/10ply) dark green yarn and a 5mm hook, but changing the yarn weight and hook size will determine the size. ie if you would like REALLY small ones using 4ply and a 2.5 hook, for larger use a bulky yarn and a 7mm or larger hook. You may also need to add or remove a DC or so at stage 3 to get a neat round wreath.

American terms used, for UK use Treble Crochet instead of DCs at stage 2 and 3



1. Chain 4, slip stitch into 1st chain to make a circle, chain 2


2. work a double crochet into the middle of the circle


3. Work a further 19 DC into the circle (total 20DC and the 2 chain)


4. Slip stitch into the top of the1st DC ... sew ends in neatly at back


5. Cut a length of contrast yarn for bow, knot around one of the DC make a bow, pull the bow loops to size and neaten.
Double knot the bow again to secure firmer if wished. Cut a length of contrast yarn for hanging (about 20cm), hold yarn in center and feed through top edge opposite the bow, pull both ends through loop and pull tight to create a hitch knot


6. either leave hanging loop ends open to tie to tree or knot ends together to create a loop. Further decorate with some glue and glitter or sequins if desired for that snowy/iced effect

I'll be back ... okay so i never really went away but the title will make sense further down :D

Around 4 years ago there was a few of us who blethered away regularly on the Red Bull F1 teams forums. There were a few competitions put on and that inspired me (with a few other influences) to make the Motorsport Dudes

Time has continued, faces have come and gone ... but every once in a while something works it's way onto your newsfeed or a blogpost and you think ... OH, I could do that.

So what has been the creative kick up the jacksie... THIS circulating again after Toto Wolff took a tumble off his bike and ended up with metal holding his wrist back together with the #Totonator tag


OOOOOHHHHH .... i have silver yarn said the wee seed that popped into the brain ... and in between the other ridiculous amount of projects i already have started I felt it was a great idea to just add another one to them :D

So for the last couple of days, I've taken the odd few minutes here and there and come up with

The Wolffs
