Yarn along

I've almost finished my yoke sweater, but I've decided to reknit the sleeves, because I felt the garment too bulky. Longer, fitted cuffs make it a bit smoother and more flattering. I am also thinking to reknit the lower part of the body with a longer ribbing.

During the past weeks I completed a few small crocheted items.
Here is a super cute apple cozy designed by Kara @ Petals to Picots. I showed you a progress picture before and asked your advice in choosing the perfect color for the wings. I totally forgot that I had a fun yarn  in my stash with slow lilac color-transitions which could be the right one. So here is my finished cozy:

I'd also finished a pumpkin basket as the part of my CAL. On Sunday it had been gifted to my mother-in-law.

Wishing you happy creating!

Sharing on:


  1. I think you're very right to make the cuffs longer.
    Nice apple-cozy-owl and beautiful pupkin!

  2. Hee-hee, I love the owl! It's adorable!

  3. Your sweater is very pretty and that owl, so cut.

  4. Your sweater is coming along really nicely, just in time for the cold weather! x

  5. I am so in love with that sweater! Well, and that little apple cozy is the bee's knees (sorry, I've just gotten a new med for my fibro and it's making me a little silly)! I think I need to pop over to get that pattern, after all everyone needs at least one apple cozy! :D

  6. Your sweater is amazing! and the other two projects are very cute ;-)

  7. I am just blown away by your talent! (coming over from Ginny's blog). I've been trying to teach myself to knit for a year now and I haven't made it past a simple scarf! Maybe one day when the kids are a bit bigger... dreams... Anyway, well done!

  8. I love the cuff stitch on that sweater.
    Beautiful job!

  9. love the adaptations to your sweater, looks perfect hanni!

  10. I am always impressed with knitters who can adjust a pattern. Beautiful sweater and pumpkin.

  11. I always like my cuffs extra long too.
    And that apple cozy is just the cutest thing!

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
