Hats for the girls

My knitting needles are so busy now since I started winter knitting for the family. Now I would like to recommend you some quick and decorative knitting pattern.

#1 Last weekend my niece, Alice had her birthday (14 yo) and received a lace hat with a matching cowl from me. 
Here is my version for Milanese Lace Topper:

I choosed a grayish blue yarn and 3 mm knitting needles (a size smaller than recommended). I love knitting lace and this one was faster then I expected. 

#2 I picked an other popular pattern for my other teenage niece, Hannah. I bought a skein of Schachenmayr SMC Aventica for a quicky cap project. In my previous post I have already written about how perfect this yarn was: so soft and flexible in beautiful shades

This hat was very simple: it contains just seed stitches and knit stitches. I am really satisfied with the result.
Robin's Egg Blue Hat is extremely popular on Ravelry, it has almost 4000 projects! I highly recommend for beginner knitters (just have to know how to knit in round with double pointed needles).

My elder nieces are too shy, although before they were modelling for my crochet hat patterns, this time I couldn't bring them to take a few photo. But their little sister, Juci is very brave and she like showing her outfits, posing in pictures and watching herself. This time couldn't resist pulling it on her head and smile for us in her beret she received from me a couple months ago:

Wish you happy knitting!


  1. I really like that second hat, the button gives it a little flair.

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
