Ruffles & rose scarflette

I am addicted to accessories: earrings, necklaces, hats, scarves, gloves, BAGs etc... Women can never have enough accessories. Am I right or am I right?
The other day I wrote about a new white&lilac cowl. Well, it is actually a scarflette and my favourite neckwarmer. Here it is:

Usually I don't wear purple, because I always thought, that it turned my skin too "pale". This ruffle yarn is leftover from the scarf I have knitted for my mother-in-law for Christmas. I love its colour and doesn't turn me white.
The white yarn is a very soft bulky yarn. It was originally bought for a cowl.

Let's see the pattern. This will be easy-peasy :)


  • 1 ball of bulky white yarn ( e.g.: Schachenmayr Silenzio)
  • 1/3 ball of ruffle yarn (e.g.: Steinbach Wolle Swing)
  • crochet hook size 6-8 (recommended was 8, but I didn't have that size and my craft store was currently run out, so I used a smaller hook. It worked.)
  • knitting needle size 6
  • button (This is optional. I used a button on the rose to fasten the scarflette.)
  • thread 

I skipped this step :)


I always find risky to use white yarn with some dark colour. So I gave them a try. I knotted two little pieces of the yarns together and washed it. They saved their colours, so that's why I like german quality (plus these brands have quite a modest price).


st = stitch
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
* * = repeat
shell= 3 dc 1 ch. Worked into the space between two 3 dc shell groups. 


chain 21
1. row: ch 3 (count as 1 dc) and turn, 2 dc to the same stitch, 1 ch, * skip 2, 3 dc to the next st, 1 ch * this row ends with 3dc on the last st (= 7 shells)
2. row: ch 3 and turn * skip 2, 3 dc to the next st, 1 ch *  end this row with 1 dc to the last st (= 6 shells + 1 dc and 3 ch on the edges)
3. row = 1. row
4. row = 2. row

Repeat 1-2 rows for 6 times.

The ruffle edges:

Start with 18 stitches.

With simple knitting knit 8 rows. Ruffle yarn has its own way of knitting, on Youtube you can find more useful video tutorials.

Sew on the ruffle edges.

I have already shared the pattern here. (See at the end of the post.)

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)

Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.

You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
Instructions The Head Chain 4. R1 Ch2, make 1hdc in the 3rd st from the hook. Hdc 1 in next 3 sts. In last (corner) st make 4 hdc's. On the back side of the beginning ch-4 make 1 hdc in next 3 sts, make 2 sts in last st. Join to the top of the beg ch2 with a sl st. R2 Ch2, make 1 hdc in sa…
