Yarn Along

I was taking a little break from blogging in the last couple weeks. But I am not away from my knitting. In these weeks the only craft I do is knitting.
After Christmas I completed my long-time bedside project Ochre Leaves Cowl.
Yarn: Malabrigo Lace (Frank Ochre)
Pattern: my head. The pattern is currently under testing, it will be available on Ravelry very soon.

There is no more relaxing activity at night than knitting something mindless, I've just started a new bedside project Lace Pullover.
I would like to keep this project in secret for a little while, so I don't cover the whole piece. This photo was taken on Saturday. I am currently a little bit obsessed with baking and cooking sugarfree and glutenfree or organic (if I glutenfree version would have too different taste from the original one I just choose organic). On Saturday I made very healthy rolled pancakes and cuddling under my blanket I finally had a very lazy afternoon.

There is starting something really exciting on Ravelry now. I am challenging myself on Ravelry Winter Games 2014. I am participating with two projects. This sweater will be one of them, the other one will be my first felted slippers. I haven't decided which pattern to choose: knit or crochet... slippers or balerinas or loafers... huhh. Not easy to pick one!

I am so excited to see what were you doing during the last couple weeks. Wishing you happy creating!

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
