Hermione hearts Ron hat

Before Christmas I was so busy with my crochet, knitting a sewing although I didn't plan too much handmade. I made the choco spoons for my cousin, knitted a hat for my husband and for an other cousin (baby Lili's mother), sewed two pillows for Juci and baby Lili and crocheted a purse for my sister-in-law. Plus almost each wrapping were decorated with crocheted snowflakes and made some garland too. It didn't seem to much at first, but I had to realize, that knitting a beanie on 3 mm needles is not a one-night adventure and although a snowflake is really quick to complete, but 30 of them is a nice crochet-along program. 
Time to share with you my creations. This post is dedicated to my cousin's beanie. The pattern is available for free on Ravelry. It is so delightful I had to make it. I owned the grey yarn from months, it was bought for a hat for myself, but Christmas changed my plans :)

This beanie was really a last-time project, I started to knit on 22th December and the blocking was ready on 25th December evening. I met with my cousin on 26th. 

The hat was inspired by Hermione's hat from Harry Potter. And I must tell, this beanie exactly looks like Hermione's hat!! So lovely! 
Do you like Harry Potter novels? I love them, I will never be enough grown up from fairy tales.... 

The designer of the pattern asks us to make an upside down photo. So I  asked husband to take a photo from me. I am a little bit scary on the picture:

But my favourite pictures are those where baby Lili is modeling. See how cute she is in this oversized hat:
The owl pillow she is playing with was my gift for her :)

Wish you happy crafting!


  1. So sweet! The hat and the cuties modeling it :)

  2. The baby makes me laugh! :-)
    The hat is very nice!
    I think your needles are much thinner now you have crocheted and knitted so much and so fast.

  3. It's a lovely hat and looks so cute on Lili :)

  4. This hat is so pretty. I love the yarn you picked!

  5. Such a lovely hat! I love everything about it: cables, some lacy details, and grey. It is perfect, in my book. I will save it in my "favorites" to make it one of these days. The baby is SO cute, and I think you look very cool in the up-side down pic ;-) a very creative idea.

  6. You are not scary upside-down!!!
    the beanie is so nice on Lili, too!!!

  7. Gorgeous dear Hanni! Love the baby with the beanie :-)

  8. The hat is gorgeous and looks very cute on your little model, who is cute too of course.

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
