Knitting & Crochet Inspiration: Sweet Treats

Knitting and crochet inspiration

After some very mild weeks we have suddenly had a few colder days again, but this doesn't stop me from looking forward to sunshine and proper spring weather. It does make me hesitate to leave the house without a scarf and hat, though. Time for an edition of knitting and crochet inspiration that is full of sweet treats!

1. Luckily, the cool temperatures don't mean you need to stay away from ice cream. Thanks to Melanie Berg's Ice Cream and Soda Mitts, you can enjoy them all you want without your hands freezing. The great thing is they're easy to knit and ideal for beginners. Give them a go!

2. If you are as much of a fan of ice cream as I am, but need to pace yourself, perhaps crocheting some ice cream cones in lots of flavours will keep away the cravings for a little bit longer. This free pattern is perfect for crocheters wanting to use up leftover yarn in a variety of colours. 

3. Aren't these little cotton candy buddies the sweetest you've ever seen? Just ignore that they are described as Christmas decorations - they are perfect for anything you may have in mind for them. I especially love how fluffy they are, an effect created by brushing the finished crocheted form.

4. Your Ice Cream Shawl will keep away the cool wind sweeping through our parts lately. Lace lovers will enjoy the delicate pattern and as far as I can see, the repeats should be easily memorised after a few rows. Like many of today's patterns, this one is free.
