Crocheted rings {how-to}


Lately I have been quite busy with my shop. After I was spending a long time with crafting and receiving postitive feedbacks, I decided to open a shop on Etsy. Now I am trying to figure out how to make my little shop more popular and what items would be interesting for my future costumers. My business will be specialized in crocheted and sewn goodies, I listed a few ready to ship bags and crocheted rings into my first collection.
Now I would like to share a little tutorial for the rings {because I don't want to stop sharing my projects :)}. 

But at first if you would like to recommend you one of my favourite blogger, Donata for more inspirations. She has also made a few rings lately and shares a great tutorial for this cute one:

Visit her blog to see more variations!

I made the rings with different crochet threads and yarns. I was working with thicker and thinner threads too, so instead of writting a crochet pattern, I took a photo strip. 



I simply used a wooden half ball, what I crocheted around with simple crochet stitches. It is 3 cm wide and 2 cm tall and isn't heavy at all, so it is comfortable to wear.

If you would like to have one for yourself, but don't want to make, you can buy these colorful ones in my etsy shop.

Wish you happy crocheting!

  3. Thank you so very much, Hanni, for mentioning my rings here. So kind of you!
    Your rings and bags are beautiful and well done and I'm sure they will sell on Etsy. I love the colors you use.
    Your how-to photos are great. I thought I knew how you did it, but I was wrong. - Very smart to glue the ring before the crochet 'phase'.
    Thanks again! xox

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
Materials:
•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…
