A warm cape…

2nd February 2015, Pennsylvania – It’s Groundhog Day there and hundreds of people are waiting excited for this cute, fluffy furball to know when the winter will be over. The tradition says that if the groundhog goes out from her burrow and it is cloudy, spring will come early; if it is sunny the groundhog will see its shade and scared will go back again into her burrow, meaning that winter will be around for at least other six weeks.

Same day, Italy – It’s Candlemas Day here and all the people are staring at the sky because we’ve a saying too for this day. If it is cloudy or rainy it means we’re still into winter time, otherwise a sunny day means spring will come soon.

Well this year it looks like we both got disappointed since the little groundhog went back sleeping into her burrow and here in Italy it actually snowed. So I realized there’s no escape and we’ll have to deal with this freezing winter still for a while. For this reason I decided to turn my disappointment into the chance of crocheting something warm and for me, and this beautiful cape came out.

cape1I love crocheting wearable accessories, they make your look so personal and unique. To make this cape I chose a light grey color which I think looks very elegant and versatile. You can pair it with a dark shade coat or even with a shirt.

cape2For this pattern I was inspired by a crochet magazine I bought in a shop, close to the office where I work and if you are thinking that it won’t be easy to make, you’re wrong! Even if you are a beginner, you’ll be surprised by how simple and fast this project is.

What you’ll need :

  • 4 skeins of yarn (400 gr) in the color you prefer
  • 6 mm crochet hook
  • yarn needle
  • scissors

Stitches used:

  • chain stitches (ch)
  • single crochet (sc)
  • double crochet (dc)
  • triple crochet (tr)
  • slip stitch (sl st)

Start chaining 80 stitches then join to the first ch to form a circle making sure your work doesn’t twist.

row 1-10 : ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Sl st into the first ch.

row 11 : ch 1, sc into the next stitch, *ch 4, sl st into the first ch, sc in the next 3 st*. Repeat from * to* until the end of the row. Sl st into the first ch.

row 12 : ch 5, *dc into the 3rd stitch, ch 2*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Sl st into the third ch.

row 13 : ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Sl st into the first ch.

row 14: ch 6, *tr into the third st, ch 2*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Sl st into the fourth ch.

row 15: ch1, *sc in the next 3 st, 2 sc into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to* until the end of the row. Sl st into the first ch.

row 16 – 17 : ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Sl st into the first ch.

Repeat from row 11 to row 17 two times, then again row 11 and at the end of it fasten off your yarn. Ta-da here is the result.

cape3cape4I hope you guys like this pattern. Let me know if you are going to try it and if you do, send to me the pictures of your works, I always enjoy seeing them. Also I am very curious about your traditions to say goodbye to the winter season , so feel free to share them with me, I am always looking for cultural exchanges. I thank you all guys from the bottom of my heart and I wish you happy crocheting…bye!!!!!

Baby hat and matching mittens…

Could you think of a better way to enter the new year than the arrival of a little, soft, pink bundle? At the beginning of the month, my cousin gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Aurora, adding a new branch to our family tree. My gift for her was the project I am going to share with you today, a cute baby hat with matching mittens. Aren’t they simply adorable?

fotoIIf you give a look around you can certainly notice that pink in all its shades is my favorite color and when I saw this light pink yarn I couldn’t help thinking about anything more delicate and perfect for a newborn lady. One ball was enough for both the hat and the mittens and since I had some white yarn left, I used it to make a flower to embellish the hat. Here is the pattern I made up for these projects, it is in the size 0-3 months and to make it easier I also took some row-by-row photos. Well, what more…let’s begin !

Cat-Hooded Cowl…

Every wish of my little niece is my command! This is what I said to myself when she started pointing a picture on a crochet magazine I was reading. She got excited by one of those hooded cowl with animal ears on top which I think look very funny and cute especially on babies, who are cute, sweet and funny by their own. Despite her mum always telling me I am spoiling the baby too much, I instantly took the chance to crochet it as a Christmas gift for her. Since she loves cats I wanted to make this gift more personal, crocheting cat ears on top of the hood and a little nose and whiskers on the cowl. This is the final result and…oops it looks like I have to make some presentations first…Ladies and gentlemen I am honored to introduce to you my model Cicciobello doll, wearing this beautiful cat-hooded cowl!!!

hoodie

hoodie1

Before starting your project the only thing you should know is the head circumference of the person who is going to wear the hoodie. If you have the chance to take this measure directly, it would be perfect, if not (like always happens to me) you can follow the measures below.My niece is two years old so I considered a head size of 50 cm.

0-1 year : 45 cm

1-2 years : 50 cm

3-10 years : 53 cm

Women : 56 cm

Men : 60 cm

To make the hoodie, I’ve used 2 skeins of yarn (200 gr) in a dark blue color and a 6 mm hook. You also need a small amount of white yarn, a needle and a pair of scissors. We are going to work three different pieces to be assembled , the cowl and two squares for the hoodie.

Stitches used

sc : single crochet

dc : double crochet

COWL

Make a foundation chain as long as the head circumference you got from the table. It took for me 60 chains to reach a total length of 50 cm. Then join to the first stitch with a slip stitch to form a circle making sure your work doesn’t twist.

Row 1-end : ch 2 (it counts as the first dc), dc in each stitch around. Sl St into the second chain.

You are going to repeat row 1 until you reach the desired height of your cowl. I repeated it 7 times for a total height of 15 cm. Then fasten off your yarn thread.

HOODIE

Make a foundation chain equal to the half number of the chains crocheted for the cowl. In my case for the cowl I crocheted 60 chains, so now for the hoodie I made 30 chains.

Row 1: ch2 (it counts as the first dc), dc in each stitch across.

Row 2-end : ch2 and turn your work. Dc in each stitch across.

You are going to repeat row 2 until you have a square shape. Make another square in order to have two pieces to form the hoodie.

EARS

For the ears we are going to work 4 triangles, 2 with the blue color for the outer part of the ears and 2 with the withe yarn for the inside part.

Ch 7

Row 1 :ch 1, 2 sc joined together in the next 2 stitches, sc in each stitch. (6 st)

Row 2: ch 1 and turn your work, 2 sc joined together in the next 2 stitches, sc in each stitch. (5 st)

Row 3: ch 1 and turn your work, 2 sc joined together in the next 2 stitches, sc in each stitch. (4 st)

Row 4: ch 1 and turn your your work, 2 sc joined together in the next 2 stitches, sc in each stitch. (3 st)

Row 5: ch 1 and turn your work, 2 sc joined together in the next 2 stitches, sc in each stitch. (2 st)

ASSEMBLING

hoodie3Start joining the two squares for the hoodie. Put the two pieces one on the other and sew them along the two sides as it is shown in the picture below.

hoodie4

Once you’ve sewn 2/3 of the upper part of the hoodie, fold inside what is left and it will look like 4 layers to be joined, keep sewing them also. In the lower part of the hoodie we are going to attach the cowl. Once you’ve finished sewing, turn inside out your hoodie and voilà, here is the result.

hoodie5Assemble the two ears by sewing the white part on the blue one and sew them on the hoodie. For the little nose, whit the white yarn, in a magic ring make 6 sc joined with a sl st and sew it in the center of the cowl. For the whiskers insert your needle in the nose from the back and insert it further, the first time following a diagonal direction, then horizontally, then again diagonally. Always remember to pass by the center of the nose every time you change direction. Repeat it on the other side of the nose.

I hope you guys like this pattern, I tried to make it as simple and clear as possible. Now it’s your turn, make it in any size you want and share your results with me. I would be so happy to see how you customized your hoodie and the animal you have chosen. I love you all…byeeee!!! XX

‘Knit-like’ infinity scarf…

Hi my lovely friends, it’ s been a while since my last post , but a lot has happened! As some of you may know, last September I graduated as a civil engineer and I started looking for a job. At the beginning I felt a little discouraged, I used to spend almost my entire days in front of my laptop searching for companies, sending CV and it seemed no one was looking for me. By the way I didn’t give up, I kept looking with a more positive attitude and now I am super excited to tell you that I’ve been working since almost two months!! I am officially a civil engineer in a private company, even if I still didn’t get used to people calling me in this way. I love my job, it makes me travel a lot and every day I can meet new people who can help me growing up personally and professionally. Even if my job makes me very busy and some days really tired, I always have time for my biggest passion, because as they say in one of my favorite movies ‘passion is what keeps us alive’. So today I am here to share with you my last project, which is a ‘knit-like’ crochet infinity scarf.

DSC_1117You know what I think about infinity scarves, I love them, they go with every outfit and enrich also the simplest ones, even a basic white T-shirt with a jeans. To make this infinity scarf I have used 5 skeins of Roby Hobby (it looks like the website is still under construction) yarn in the grey color and my 8 mm crochet hook.

DSC_1051The yarn is incredibly soft and warm, it is the chunky type and you’ll be able to make three rows with each skeins. Be sure to have an enough big yarn needle and then just make yourself comfortable, maybe with a hot cup of tea (considering how freezing is outside ) and enjoy my super easy pattern.

Row 1 : ch 100

DSC_1083Row 2: ch2, hdc in the back loop of the 3rd chain. *Hdc in the back loop of each stitch around*. Repeat ** until the end of the row.

Crocheting in the back loops only, is what will give the knit like look to your scarf.

DSC_1087back loopsRow 3-15: ch 2 and turn your work. *Hdc in the back loop of each stitch around*. Repeat ** until the end of the row.

DSC_1088

DSC_1096Once you have your long ‘rectangle’ just sew the two ends together and you’ve done !!! It couldn’t be easier, am I right? Now twist your scarf twice around your neck and you won’t be able to take it off.

DSC_1132I hope you guys like this pattern, as you have seen it is super easy and super super (other 100 super) quick. Since the yarn is very thick your work will go very fast and you’ll be able to end it in an afternoon if you have a free one. Moreover, since it’s holiday season, you can use this pattern to make scarves as a gift for your dearest friends. They will appreciate it because it didn’t come only from your heart, but also from your hands.

Now after this long talk , it’s time to wish you happy crocheting, happy holiday season and whenever you have any questions, or just want to say ‘hello’ feel free to leave me a comment.

I love all my readers…kiss u

P.S. The movie I was talking about is ‘Dead poets society’ aw *.*

 

Infinity scarf…

Here comes the fall, my favorite season. It’s the time of the year when the nature acts like a painter and dyes everything around us with thousand perfectly mixed colors. The results are beautiful landscapes of trees no more green, but tinged with yellow, red and orange leaves. The sky is of a very intense blue and you can appreciate more the light and the warmth of the sun. However the days get shorter and when the sun goes down, the wind rising reminds you that winter is just a matter of weeks. With these feelings I decided to crochet a warm scarf to wear during the chilly autumn days. Infinity scarves are my favorites, I love them, they are so versatile and complete your look. I made mine in a cream color, I put it on , went to the park and had fun taking some pictures!

To make this scarf I used the tropical lane carisma yarn. It’s incredibly soft and it has a lighter shade which mixes to the white cream for a really fine and unique color combination.

What you’ll need:

  • 250 gr of tropical lane charisma yarn, in the color 401
  • 6 mm crochet hook
  • yarn needle

Stitches used :

  • chain stitch (ch)
  • double crochet stitch (dc)

Start chaining 34 + 3 to turn your work.

 Row 1 : 1 dc in the 5th ch from the hook, *ch 1, skip the next stitch and 1 dc in the next one*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

 Row 2-100 : ch 3 and turn your work. *1 dc in the very next ch 1 space, ch 1 , 1 dc in the next ch 1 space *. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

Soft baby blanket…

Hi my lovely friends! Today I have a great news to share with you…In few months I will become an aunt again 🙂 !!! My best friend is expecting a little baby girl (her name will be Chiara) and now that she is at her sixth month of pregnancy there’s absolutely no time to waste. Thanks to my boyfriend I didn’t buy all the purchasable yarn in the store, but I started with this beautiful and delicate lavender color to make a soft and warm blanket.

DSC_0994DSC_0974

I was inspired by this chart I found on the net . It took few hours to understand how it worked, because the instructions are written in Russian, but with a bit of imagination I finally succeeded!

2-1

Well, if you too have a baby girl on the way and want to gift her with something personal and special, make yourself comfortable and follow my ‘row by row’ tutorial.

What you’ll need:

  • 400 gr of yarn for baby items in the color you like
  • 3 mm crochet hook
  • yarn needle
  • scissors

Stitches used :

  • chain stitch (ch)
  • single crochet stitch (sc)
  • double crochet stitch (dc)

 TIP : Choose always the best for babies! Their skin is very delicate and sensitive so be sure to buy soft and anti-allergic yarn, plus do their mums a favor buying also a washable kind 🙂

 Start making a foundation chain multiple of 7+3 until you reach the desired width for your blanket. Mine was about 24’’ (60 cm) then I chained 154+3 = 157.

 Row 1 : ch 1. Sc in the next 3 stitches from the hook, *ch 4, skip the next 4 stitches and sc in the next 3 stitches*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

 Row 2 : ch 1 and turn your work. *Sc in the next stitch, ch 1, skip one stitch and sc in the next one. 9 dc (fan) in the 4 ch space*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

 Row 3 : ch 1 and turn your work. *Ch 3, 1 dc in the very next ch 1 space. Ch 3, sc in the 4th, 5th , 6th fan stitches*. Repeat from * to * until the last ch one space of the row. Then ch 2 and dc in the last stitch.

 Row 4 : ch 1 and turn your work. Sc in the next 2 ch space. *Ch 4, sc in the ch 3 space. Ch 3 , sc in the next 3 ch space. * Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

 Row 5 : ch 1 and turn your work. Ch 2 (it counts as the first dc) , 4 dc in the same stitch. *Sc in the next 3 ch space , ch 1 and sc in the same 3 ch space. 9 dc in the next 4 ch space*. Repeat from * to * until the last 3 ch space. 5 dc in the last stitch to end the row.

 Row 6 : ch 1 to turn. Sc in the next stitch.* Ch 3, dc in the next ch 1 space. Ch 3 , sc in the 4th 5th 6th fan stitches*. Repeat from * to * until the last ch 1 space of the row. Ch 3 and sc in the last stitch.

Row 7 : ch 1 to turn. Ch 4, sc in the next 3 ch space. *Ch 4, sc in the next 3 ch space. Ch 3 , sc in the next 3 ch space*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

Row 8 : ch 1 and turn your work. *Sc in the next stitch, ch 1, sc in the 3 ch space. 9 dc in the 4 ch space*. Repeat from * to* unit the end of the row.

Keep repeating the sequence row 3-row 8 until you reach the desired length of your blanket. Mine was about 32’’ (80 cm). Then fasten off your yarn and start making the edge.

DSC_0950

Edging : The original pattern is multiple of 20 chains, but I am too lazy to count and I decided to make it easier 🙂

Row 1 : sc in each stitch around. 3 sc in the corners of your blanket.

Rows 2-7 : ch 3 (it counts as the first dc), 2 dc in the same stitch. Skip one stitch and sc in the next one. Skip one stitch and 3 dc in the next one. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Slip stitch in the third ch.

I also had some yarn left, so I decided to make these cute and warm baby booties. You can find the original pattern in http://besenseless.blogspot.com/ blog. Then I added a little bow for a more personal touch.

DSC_0947

Bow

In a magic ring, *ch 3, 3 dc, ch 3 and slip stitch in the very next ch from the hook*. Now you’ve done the first side of your bow. Repeat from * to *for the other side. Cut a long thread of yarn and start wrapping it around the center of your bow. Secure it on the back with a knot. Sew the bows on your booties and that’s it !

I hope you guys like this work. If you are going to make this blanket or if you have already made one using other patterns, feel free to share your pictures with me. I can’t wait to see them! I wish you happy crocheting and see you to the next post! Ciao.. 🙂

Timeless doily…

Hi my dear friends! Today I am here with a new project I made for one of my grandma’s friends. She wanted a white doily for a white long table in her dining room so I chose an oval shape with an edging pineapple motif and I tried it on the white furniture in my bedroom. I can say that she had a really good taste because I absolutely love the effect . It’s really delicate and elegant and I think I’m gonna make one for me too.

DSC_0026DSC_0018

Here is the free pattern I followed. It comes with some instructions on the left side of the page, but basically the work starts from the central 97 chain stitches and continues working around. (Just remember to fasten off your thread at rows 4 and 10). To make this doily I used 150 gr of white cotton thread crocheted with a 1.75 mm hook and the final size that came out is about 24’’x16’’ (60cmx40cm).

DSC_0077

I also took some extra pictures so that you can see the details of this work.

DSC_0032

I hope you guys enjoy this pattern. It’s really easy and it will take approximately one week of no hard working. Well, give it a try and if you have any questions or problems don’t hesitate to leave a comment and I will be more than pleased to help you. Happy crocheting and see you to the next post!!! Byeee

Vintage Ruffles…

Hi my dear friends! It’s sale time here in Italy and I couldn’t miss a tour in my favorite yarn store. Everything was half priced, so what a great chance to buy all the things I liked and even more ! When I saw this ‘crochetable’ polka-dots fabric, it was love at first sight! No way I would have left it in there!! As a vintage style lover, my mind went to 1950s fashion straightaway and I decided to use it like ruffles for a skirt. Here is the final result and believe me, I can’t help running my hands through those ruffles . They are incredibly soft!!!

DSC01886

Here is the pattern I made up for this work and I can ensure you it’s really easy, quick and beginner friendly (that was my second skirt project ). The final size fits a 3 years old child ( waist circumference of about 55 cm and a total length of 21 cm), but I am gonna give you some tips to customize your size. Well, keep reading and if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment, I’ll answer as soon as I can. Happy crocheting !!!!

What you’ll need :

  • 250 gr of yarn in the color you prefer; I chose the white cream.
  • 3.00 mm crochet hook;
  • 2 balls of dark red dots fabric (400 m)
  • elastic band ;
  • yarn needle;
  • scissors.

Stitches used :

  • chain stitch (ch);
  • single crochet stitch (sc);
  • double crochet stitch (dc);
  • slip stitch (sl st).

The first thing you need to do is to take some measurements. You should define waist circumference, hips width and total length of your project. If you’re crocheting this skirt as a gift and you want to surprise the person who’s gonna receive it, you can find in this post the size table I usually use.

Once you have all your measures, start crocheting a foundation chain as long as the hips width you want to reach. Then, join to the first chain with a slip stitch to form a circle, making sure your work doesn’t twist.

Rounds 1-10 : ch 1 (it counts as the first sc), sc in each stitch around. Sl st into the first chain.

 Rounds 11-15 : ch 2 (count as the first dc), 1dc in the back loop of each stitch around. At the end of the row sl st into the second ch.

 Rounds 16 : ch 2, *1 dc in the back loop of the next 13 stitches, 2 dc in the back loop of the 14th stitch (increase)*. Repeat from * to * until you reach the end of the row. Then sl st into the second chain.

 Rounds 17-20 : ch 2, 1dc in the back loop of each stitch around. At the end of the row sl st into the second ch.

 Rounds 21: ch 2, *1 dc in the back loop of the next 16 stitches, 2 dc in the back loop of the 17th stitch(increase)*. Repeat from * to * until you reach the end of the row. Then sl st into the second chain.

 Rounds 22-26 : ch 2, 1dc in the back loop of each stitch around. At the end of the row sl st into the second ch.

 What’s working in back loop?

As you can see the upper part of the stitch is defined by 2 loops. Working in back loops only, means that you are going to insert your hook underneath the loop on the back to make your stitch.

backloop

How to attach the fabric :

Once you have the ‘body’ of your skirt, you need to attach the fabric. As you can see it comes with big holes in the upper part to be crocheted.

  1. Insert your hook into row 11 from the back, grab the entire fabric and pull it through
  2. In the back of the work, go few stitches over, grab your fabric and pull it through
  3. Sew the fabric to secure
  4. Insert your hook in the front loop of row 11 and in the first hole of your fabric and pull I through.
  5. Insert your hook in the very next front loop and in the second hole of the fabric and pull it through the two loops you have on your hook.
  6. Keep repeating point 5 until the end of the row
  7. Sew the fabric to secure.

 Attach your fabric to rows 11-16-21-26.

I put an elastic band to make the skirt more comfortable to wear. To create the elastic casing, fold the waistband in half and sew all the way around, leaving a 10 cm opening to add the elastic. Cut it to be the length of the waist circumference minus 10 cm. Slide the elastic into the casing, using a pin. Pull it through the loop until you reach the other side where you are going to sew the two ends together. Close the opening left and that’s it!

 I hope you guys enjoy this pattern. I tried to explain step by step what I have done, but if you have any doubts or questions leave a comment and I’ll be happy to help you. Also I will be pleased to see the pictures of your handmade projects using this pattern and the fabric print you chose. Now I can only wish you happy crocheting and keep in touch! Byeeeee.
