Patterns for Nature Lovers

Those who have followed my crochet blog and pattern designs over the years, would know that I believe in a magical world. One of nature, kindness, surprise and delight! I wanted to share with you a collection of crochet patterns that are practical, pretty and a little different, for those of us that are drawn in some way to the mystical part of the natural world. 

We’re not talking of darkness, potions, nor spells. I’m thinking re-usable, good for the environment, being outdoors, embracing the wild in each of us! In many ways we are all too often disconnected from the natural world that surrounds us. We throw away weeds from the garden that may actually hold high levels of nutrients if we ate them, or have medicinal properties if we understood how to use them. We stare at bright screens when our body wants to sleep. We miss the sunrise and sunset, because our bodies are out of rhythm, due to artificial light. We eat foods that aren’t in season, nor grown locally to us. We always wear shoes, so our bare feet seldom touch the raw earth. Our minds are rarely ever still.

I do see myself the irony of writing about this on the web, and you reading it on your phone or computer! However, let’s put that aside and just for now, think about all that is wonderful about the natural world and womanhood. Let’s embrace our inner Earth Mother, Witchy selves and create intentionally with our planet and the celestial in mind.

Did you know that I am one soul of a like-minded community of crocheters? Everyday (new) friends are joining together to discuss our mutual love of all things yarn and crochet, crochet obsessed humans just like you and me! My facebook group 👉  facebook group is a safe and friendly space to chat crochet, discover free patterns and discounts, and share your own project photos.

I look forward to seeing you in the group and as ever, 

Happy Hooking my friends!  💜  Lisa

Fly Agaric Mushroom

Mushrooms and Toadstools and Fungi – Oh my! There’s just something about these little fruiting bodies that feels very alien and magical to me.
