New Cowl WIP

Let me to introduce you another WIP. I've been dying in cowl-fever in these days so I started to knit a new lacy cowl.
Originally I purchased this yarn for a future shawl, but I prefer wearing something wrapped and cozy around my neck, so now I am making a cowl to my Fall wardrobe.
Yarn: Malabrigo Lace #Frank Ochre (yay!)
Design: moi 
 I wanted something lacy but still cozy with lace weight yarn. I was digging for a pattern for a long time, but I couldn't find anything that I truly loved. So now I am making my own improvisation (and maybe a sample for a future design).
Fall is finally here and I decorated the house with 'harvest'-related things. Is my sparkling rose yay or nay in this basket? {Normally I do not decorate with sparkling things, so don't know how it works there.}

I am sharing in these parties:



  1. Hi there, I just saw your cowl over at small things and had to come over and have a look. I love the colour of that yarn and it looks so soft. It'll be gorgeous to wear.

  2. Me too! Its a gorgeous colour!

  3. p.s. I am now following you via GFC so that I can see it finished!

  4. The knit cowl is looking lovely! I like the color a lot ♥

  5. That will feel great around your neck. I love the photo with the gourds!

  6. That's beautiful, and I'm sure it will meet your lacy and cozy requirements just perfectly.

  7. Your col looks already very warm and cozy! Nice colour, very nice pattern, so beautiful!

  8. so soft and yummy!!!!

  10. OMGosh! I am so envious of those who can design their own patterns! This is stunning... thank you for sharing it with us! I just popped over to Ravelry and will be attempting this one for sure... and in this color, which happens to be one of my favorite colors.

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
