Giant Flower Granny Square Bedspread

February 20, 2014

I have just finished making this fabulous bedspread for my daughter's bed using Mrs Moon's Plump Yarn.  It is super fast and took just under just under a week to do.  Florence's bed is a single, but it looks lovely on Molly's bed too, which is a double.  This size has taken 12 skeins of yarn, but if you wanted to make it smaller 4 skeins get you a square 64cm across and 8 skeins gets you 100cm across.  It is basically the Teddington blanket upsized, there is also a how to tutorial.

Finished measurements are 120cm x 120cm, and I used two skeins of each of the following colours: Clotted Cream, Pistachio Ice Cream, Fondant Fancy and Peppermint Cream


Knitted Ribbed Scarf in Plump by Mrs Moon

February 14, 2014

This is a very simple 2 by 2 knitted rib pattern but what better way to show off the texture and stuning softness of Mrs Moon' Plump yarn.  We have choosen Clotted Cream, a subtle and sophisticated colour, but Plump comes in a beautiful palette of colours, you could try something brighter like 'Rhubarb Crumble' maybe with some contrasting tassels, or a more manly Earl Grey or Blueberry muffin!

We have used 3 skeins, this gives you a lovely long scarf that you can wrap around you neck - 2 skeins gives you a scarf that you can tie, so if you prefer something shorter, go for that.  You could of course go for something wider and longer.. I was tempted to go for a throw, but that will have to wait for another day..... this yarn is very light and warm so longer would not mean heavier, you would just be enveloped in a soft fluffy cloud!

 When you are making a ribbed scarf as long as you start with a multiple of 4 stitches you always start every row with 2 knit stitches.

What you need:

3 skeins of Plump in Clotted Cream

10mm needles

What to do:

Cast on 24 stitches

Row 1: *K2, P2, repeat from *  to the end,

Repeat row 1, until you have about 1 metre of yarn left.

Now cast off loosely in pattern.

NB. If you slip the first stitch of every row knitwise this will make for a lovely neat edge



Houndstooth Crochet Cowl Pattern in Plump

February 14, 2014

This is a lovely and simple crochet cowl made simply by alternating doubles and trebles, this creates a really nice texture and could be just done in one colour, but by changing colour every row it gives a very effective and trendy houndstooth effect.  Mrs Moon's Plump yarn comes in a wonderful palette of 14 colours, try a contrasting colourway, here I have used 'marmalade' and 'clotted cream' but you could take a softer approach, clotted cream combined with fondant fancy or peppermint cream would be lovely and  very subtle.


The pattern here allows for the cowl to loop twice around your neck (you maybe able to still do this with 81 stitches and have a deeper cowl as mine is quite loose), alternatively you could make it smaller to fit snuggly once around, this is on my to do list (this will take 2 skeins), just remember you just need an even number of stitches, add 1 more on the base chain as you tend to 'lose' this when you join the chain in the round.


You will need:

2 skeins of Clotted Cream

1 skein of Marmalade

10mm hook 


What to do:

Using Clotted Cream make a ch of 91, join it with a sl st to the first ch to form a ring (be careful not to twist the chain) 90 sts.

Round 1: ch3 (counts as 1tr), miss st at the base of ch3, * work 1dc into the next st, 1tr into the following st, repeat from * to the end of the first round, alternating dc and tr, finish with 1dc into the last ch, join with a sl st to the top of ch3.  Fasten off.

Round 2: Change to Marmalade, (continue working the same way). Ch1, 1dc into the same place (ch3 from previous row), 1tr into the next dc, 1dc into the following tr, continue in the same way alternating sts to the end of the round, you should be alternating sts on top  of the previous row ie dc into tr and tr into dc.  Finish this round with 1tr into the dc, join with a sl st to the first dc. Fasten off.

Continue repeating row 2 and 3 until you have completed 4 rows rows of clotted cream and 3 rows of marmalade, then work 1 row dc in clotted cream, fasten off. Work one row of dc atound the bottom edge in clotted cream.  Fasten off and weave in ends.


Plump and Proud

February 03, 2014

At the end of last week we had the most exciting delivery we have ever had at Mrs Moon, and possibly the smallest!  14 perfectly formed hanks of the softest super chunky yarn imaginable... and they just happen to be ours!  Our very own Mrs Moon yarn which we've called Plump

We have been planning for Plump since last May.  A LOT of thought has gone into it and we are SO pleased with the result!  We wanted to create a yarn that is super chunky but also very soft and snuggly, which is oftern not the case with super chunky yarns.  Plump is a mix of ethically sourced Australian superfine NewMerino and baby alpaca.  It feels like a cloud!

It has been dyed and spun here in the UK.

We have chosen a beautiful palette of colours and continuing on the Plump theme have named them after some of our favourite sweets and treats...  can you work out which colour is which?  In the picture here we've got, amongst others, damson jam, pistachio ice cream, bonbon, raspberry ripple, cherry pie, marmalade, fondant fancy, rhubarb crumble.....
