Free pattern for subscribers!

I have some fantastic new for those who are subscribed to my blog!  Go and check your mailbox, because you should have received this gorgeous pattern for a crocheted scarf.  And you didn’t had to do anything for it.  How awesome is that!

If you would also like to add the flower brooche, to give it your own personal finishing touch, then just make your own gorgeous flower brooche and pin it to your scarf.  My flower was a free pattern from Simply crochet, Issue 43, but there’s thousands of free patterns available on the internet.  So go and explore and choose one that really defines you.

A lovely pattern with photo instruction can be found on the website of Molly makes.  You can find the pattern here.

Pattern release: Lennard, the frog prince + free extra’s!

Lennard,the frog prince BANNER
Yay!  Today Is a lovely day.  Today is the day that I launch the English version of my new pattern, Lennard the frog prince.
Besides that, I have some lovely extra’s for today!  Starting from today up until April 30th, 2016 I give you a 10 % reduction when you buy this pattern.  Go to my ravelry webshop and fill in the coupon-code P52kWmU when you check-out to enjoy your 10% reduction on the Lennard, the frog prince pattern.
I am so excited to see all of your little princes and princesses!
After a while I started noticing that Lennard was in search of a princess.  So I created Lena, the frog princess!    The good new is, that you only have to adapt the pattern for Lennard a tiny bit to create this beautiful princess.
This is how you do it :
used stitches (US terminology)
l = loop
sl = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
st = stitch
(…) = everything between brackets has to be crochet in the same stitch
Lips for Lena the frog princess

  2. 1 sl, 1 sc, skip 1 st, (5 dc in the next st), skip 1 st, 2 sl, skip 1 st, (5 dc in the next st), skip 1 st, 1 sc, 1 sl
