Five Favourite p/hop Patterns


I thought we would kick off this week with some of my favourite p/hop patterns. Over the years, we have had some great additions to the p/hop collection. Every pattern is unique and great fun to work with! So many amazing patterns donated by many generous designers.

Designers donate their time and knitting/crochet patterns to p/hop. There are over 65 to choose from and when you find one you like, download it and make a donation 🙂

So, here are five patterns that I have particularly enjoyed reading through, and can’t wait to try!!

 

Retro Baby… Buggy Blanket donated by Heather Westerby

A lovely easy crochet blanket, definitely a good project to get stuck into! Such a well written pattern, I can’t wait to share pictures of my completed blanket! Definitely one of my favourites!

What you need to get started:

  • Yarn: Approx 300g DK/Light Worsted
  • Hook: 4mm/ size G-6 hook

 

Quick and Easy DK Socks donated by Erssie Major

One to keep in the back pocket for Socktober! It’s always a pleasure to knit some socks! It may be a little warm for woolen socks, but as the name of this pattern suggests, it is quick and easy… and ready to be knitted!

What you need to get started:

  • 100g or 272 yards (248 meters) DK Sock Yarn
  • 1 set of 5 double pointed needles size US 6 (4mm), or size of needle you need to match the gauge given
  • 2 Stitch markers, 1 wool darning needle

 

Jacqueline Mitts donated by Bronagh Miskelly

I know, I know… it’s Summer, but it’s always good to get ideas for the cooler months! I will be getting my mitts and socks ready for Autumn!

What you need to get started:

  • 40g/ 1.4oz 4-ply sock yarn (160m/ 175yards), lighter and semi-solid colours will show the pattern best
  • 25mm/ US1 double pointed needles
  • 2 stitch markers
  • Small cable needle

 

Cricket Tea Cosy donated by Ros Clarke

Who doesn’t love a tea cosy? This is an adorable item to put together, I can’t wait to stick my needles into this project! As someone who hails from Australia, I particularly love the cricket theme 🙂

What you need to get started:

  • DK weight yarn main colour (MC): approx 50g
  • DK weight yarn scraps of contrast A and B: approx 10g each
  • 4 mm (US 6) straight needles
  • 4 mm (US 6) circular needle/dpns for collar and armholes (optional)

 

Chic Spring Beret donated by Jane Crowfoot

This beret is, indeed, very chic! We may have just missed Spring, but probably still fabulous on a cool Summer’s day. Watch this space, for socks, mitts and the chicest of berets!

What you need to get started:

  • DK weight (100% acrylic, 100g/200m balls) Yarn A Cream 1 x 100g ball

Over the next few weeks and months I will be trying out lots of the patterns on p/hop, and sharing the results on our social media channels. Follow us to keep up to date! 

When you download a pattern from the p/hop website, remember to donate to the p/hop Just Giving page, as much or as little as you like! There is no set price for a pattern; you can donate 50p or £50. 

If you have a pattern you would like to donate to p/hop, please get in touch! p-hop@london.msf.org.
