NEWS: Blog upgrade! CAL Updates! A Question for You!

Hello everyone!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on Anne's story about Mr AlienBunny and Ms Long-Ear! I love all the photos, and I hope they get to live happily ever after!

If you can't wait for our twice-weekly blog posts, you can also find us on Facebook and Instagram where we post pretty often with WIP updates and pretty things that pass by during the day :)


You might have noticed that we have a brand new blog url!! Our new home is 

The old URL ( still works of course, but we found that some people trying to find the blog, and us sometimes, forgot that although our blog name is Crochet Between Worlds, the old URL said Crochet Between TWO Worlds! Hopefully now it will be easier for people to find us :)


In other news, we have been doing some pattern designing and testing this week - what do you think? 

I made a little coin purse with this pattern, and Anne is working on a pattern for a flaming beanie! 


I've now finished my rainbow version of Julie Yeager's Mystery CAL Afghan Square! The full pattern is now available on Julie's website at This is the best kind of CAL for me - only a few rows a day, and one square at the finish line! Now I'm trying to decide what to do with it - do I make more squares but change the colour order? Expand it further to make a bigger square? Turn it into a cardigan back? Do you have any more ideas? 


Phew, we are now halfway through the Sophie's Universe CAL! There were so many single crochet stitches in this week's pattern - 520 alone in the last row! 


Nicole's (she's up to Part 6, but catching up quick, especially since she only picked up a hook for the first time 2.5 months ago!):

and Kathryn's:

I love them all!


Anne and I want to do a Christmas Market towards the end of the year - we've looked at real life markets around Sydney for when she comes to visit me in Australia, and also markets around her area, and such things are just going to be too difficult, being in two different countries.


We thought maybe a Facebook Christmas Market including all our wonderful blog friends might be fun! It would probably be in late November to allow for postage times, and can include all sorts of arts and crafts that people can buy for decorations, Christmas presents or even just for themselves ;) 

Would you be interested in putting some of your items up for sale at the Crochet Between Worlds Christmas Market? If so, send us a message on our Facebook page at Crochet Between Worlds

We look forward to hearing from you!


  1. Wow congrats on the new URL, very exciting! The pattern designing also looks very exciting, and the CALs are great what wonderful colours on all of them! You could make the square the centre of a cushion?? I'd be interested in joining a Christmas Market enterprise, I've never done anything like that before! Have a good weekend

    1. Thanks Helen! Cushion is a great idea :) I'm starting to think I need to make more of these squares just to try all the different ideas!

      Can you send us a message on facebook ( so that I have your correct facebook contact details for the market thing?

    2. I really like the cushion idea because, as a cushion, it is displayed in your home for you to enjoy every day and when you have visitors, it is showing off your wonderful work. It is a beautiful talking point. Great idea Helen!

  2. Yes maybe possibly to the market idea. I may just be in the mood for a few more pairs of baby summer sandals by then lol.
    All the Sophie's are gorgeous well done Michelle's friends :D
    I think our squares want to be either the feature in a bag or yes the back of a circle vest.

    1. A bag! Another great idea. Definitely need to make more of these squares :P

      Can you send us a message on facebook ( so that I don't forget that you're interested in the market?

  3. These crochet patterns are so intricate and wonderful, lovely colors.

  4. Sounds like a great idea with the FB Christmas market.

    1. I'll add you to the "interested" list Andrea, thank you :)
