Granny squares pillow

Spring is blooming everywhere around. Cherry trees are showing their beautiful, delicate pink flowers while fragrant roses decorate and perfume all gardens. Strawberries, apricots, peaches are making their first appearance after the cold, monochrome winter and it feels like all nature around revives. I wanted to bring this general rebirth also in my home, making something that cozes the environment and brings color and brightness at the same time. This is how my granny pillow came out. Don’t you think that the yellow color in the pattern resembles some little, cute daffodils?

While I was working on it, I realized it was my first time with a granny pattern. Before that, I have only read some posts about this technique and how it may be a bit annoying joining all the squares at the end. Well, considering that I only made 12 of them, I handled the stress 🙂 !!With the season changing, it also changed the texture of the material I used. For this project, I went for  Katia  Monaco Yarn in the shade 16 (yellow color) and 25 (light grey color), and a 3.5 mm hook. This yarn is perfect for spring/summer projects !

Here is the pattern I followed for my granny squares. I found it on the internet and just to give it more personality, I added one round and decided to create a contrast by making the first one in a different and brighter color than the others.

My pillow form measured about 50×30 cm and for it I liked the idea of a case with two different faces, one with the granny pattern and the other in a simple, bright yellow double crochet pattern.

For the ‘granny face’, I made 12 squares. Once you have done them, it is time to join them  togheter. You’ll see that the front face and the back face of your granny square look different.

To start joining them, put your squares front face to front face and single crochet along one side.

When you unfold the two squares, this is the look you are going to see.

Repeat this procedure until you have three strands of 4 squares each.

Now put two strands front face to front face and single crochet along one side. Repeat the same procedure with the last strand and that’s it! You have done your front pillow face.

To start making the back face, let’s attach the yellow yarn on the last row of the grannies and single crochet in each stitch below.

At the end of your first row, make 3 single crochet and turn your work. Double crochet in each stitch below. Repeat this pattern until you are able to cover all the back face of your pillow. In my case that was done after 26 rows.

Then I joined the two short sides of my pillow case together , while on the third size I sewed a zipper, since I thought this can be more convenient all the times I feel to wash the case, instead of unstitch it.

As you can see, to complete the look and give my pillow a nice oriental touch, I applied tassels at the corners. Don’t they look so cute!!!

I used my pillow to decorate this cute bench, with shoes storage underneath, I have right in the entry way of my apartment. I wanted to create a cozy corner to welcome everyone who is coming inside my home and also a comfy place where I can wear my shoes before leaving the house. I feel enthusiastic about how it came out!  

I hope you guys like this pattern and let me know if you too think that pillows and cushions give a cozy look to spaces and make them more warm and homey. Also let me know if are familiar with granny projects or this pattern will be your first time with this technique too. I can’t wait to see your version of this pattern and how you will use it to decorate your place. See you to the next post…bye !!!

Crochet heart socks

The feeling of cold feet? It is not for me, thanks. Warm socks are what make me go through winter, I literally live in them all season long. Whether I am at home or in bed, or watching a movie on the sofa, you will always find me with a cozy and comfy pair of socks at my feet. Even if they are very popular among knitters and crocheters, I have never tried them before. Anyway the thought of wearing wool socks, handmade by me, pushed me to take the chance of making them right away!!

I am super happy with how my first pair of socks came out and I am even happier because, together with the crochet socks technique, I also tried my hands at the tapestry crochet technique. If you are wondering what tapestry crochet means, this is a crocheting technique which consists in using several colors of yarn at the same time and changing them to create beautiful and colorful motifs and graphs. At a first look, this technique may look a bit difficult and tricky, but you will see that it’s all about getting the rhythm of the color changes. HERE you can find a useful video tutorial about this new technique and for those of you who prefer written instructions, HERE is the link to an easy tutorial made by RED HEART YARN.

Amongst the variety of patterns and graphs you can choose, I found the heart pattern the easiest to follow. I personally was inspired by this pattern I found on internet. Just remember that each square represent a single crochet.

About the yarn, I went for KATIA CONCEPT GOBI LACE, which is a 73% vergin wool and 27% elastic fibers. I found it to be the perfect mix to give my socks the right amount of elasticity especially in the cuffs zone.

Each ball is 25 grams and 160 meters long; so I only needed two red balls in the shade 107 for the body of my socks and one white ball , in the shade 100 to make the heart graph.

The pattern I made out for these socks will fit a 37-39 size foot and it is worked using a 3.5mm crochet hook.

To get started, let’s make 6 sc into a magic circle.

round 1: ch1, make 2sc into each stitch below. (12 sts)

round 2: ch1, *1 sc into the same stitch below, 2 sc into the next stitch*. Repeat from  * to * until the end of the round. (24 sts)

round 3: ch1, *1 sc into the next two stitches below, 2 sc into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to* until the end of the round (36 sts)

round 4: ch1, *1 sc into the next three stitches below, 2 sc into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round. (42 sts)

This is how your work will look like at the end of round 4.

round 5: ch1, 1 sc in each stitch around (42 sts)

rounds 6-37: ch1, 1 sc in each stitch around (42 sts)

To make the heel we are going to work in rows back and forth.

row 38: ch1, 1sc into the same stitch below, 1 sc into the next 20 stitches. (21 sts)

rows 39-53: 1sc and turn your work. Make 1 sc into the next stitches below. (21 sts)

To close the heel, we are going to turn on the outside the part just worked and make a row of single crochet into the last row stitches.

From round 54 to round 57 (4 rounds in total) we are going to work single crochet all the way around, except in the angle area where in each round we are going to work a decrease by making two single crochet closed together. At the end of my 57th round I had 48 stitches.

From round 58 to round 70 I worked the tapestry heart by simply following the pattern I showed you. Just note that the pattern repetition is multiple of 15, while we have a total of 48 stitches around. This means that between one pattern repetition and the other I made a single crochet.

If we call “A” the red yarn and “B” the white yarn, the first round of tapestry would be:

round 58: ch1, *1 sc into the next sticth (A color), 7 sc in the next stitches (A color), 1 sc into the next stitch (B color), 7 sc into the next stitches below (A color)*. Repeat from * to *  until the end of the round.

Here is a picture with the tapestry pattern going on

At the end of round 70 we are going to end our project by making the cuffs.

round 71 : ch1, 1 sc in each stitch around (48 sts)

round 72 : ch2, 1 dc in each stitch around (48 sts)

round 73-76 : ch2, 1 front post double crochet into the same stitch below, 1 back post double crochet into the next stitch. Repeat from *to* until the end of the round (48 sts)

I really love the ribbing look you can achieve by alternating front post and back post double crochet. It almost looks like knitted.

Right foot and left foot are worked the exact same way.

Considering that this is the first pair of socks I made, I feel really proud of how they came out. They look super cute and the heart details, they are just so me! I am also really happy I had the chance to experiment tapestry crochet. It is such a creative technique which gives so much options to customize your handmade items. I hope you too like this project and will try this pattern as well. Let me know if you are going to try tapestry crochet too and how you customize your own pair of socks.

Braided earwarmer

Earwarmers are being very popular during this winter season. They represent a cute alternative to beanies and hats, especially for all those days when you feel to wear your hair up but you don’t want to give up on warmth and coziness. Among the variety of types and patterns fashion proposes, I decided to create myself the braided kind. I really love their texture and the romantic as well as bohoo look they give to all your outfits and styles.

The pattern for this accessory is ridiculously easy and quick, that you’ll be able to end it in an hour or so. Also, since it doesn’t require a great amount of yarn, it is a great pattern for leftover yarns. I only needed 70 grams of some mustard color yarn I had stored in my ‘yarn keeper basket’ and my 4.5 mm crochet hook.

I didn’t want my earwarmer to be too oversized around my head, on the contrary I wanted it to look more stretchy and well fitting. So after many trials and frogs I came up with the right amount of initial chains number, 85.

row1 : ch2, 1 sc in the third ch from hook. then work 1sc in each stitch below

rows2-6: ch2 and turn your work. 1sc into the back loop only of each stitch below

row7: ch2 and turn your work. Work 1 sc in the next 3 st below. Ch 79. Finally work 1 sc into the last 3 st below

row8: ch2 and turn your work. 1sc in each stitch below

rows9-13: ch2 and turn your work. 1sc into the back loop only of each stitch below

row14: ch2 and turn your work. Work 1 sc in the next 3 st below. Ch 79. Finally work 1 sc into the last 3 st below

row15: ch2 and turn your work. 1sc in each stitch below

rows16-20: ch2 and turn your work. 1sc into the back loop only of each stitch below

At the end of row 20 you’ll have three strands of yarn ready to be braided.

A three strands braid is the basic and easiest kind of braid you can make. To achieve the look start to cross the right strand over to the center

Now take the left strand and cross it over to the center

Take again the right strand and cross it over to the center as well

Keep repeating these easy steps and you'll see your braid take shape

While braiding you will see that the ends tend to twist a bit, but I noticed that they unravel by themselves after the second braiding step.

Once you have done braiding, simply close the earwarmer in a circle and sew the ends together.

I really love how the mustard color brings such a pop of color on grey winter days. I also made another earwarmer in a more versatile, neutral and everyday color.

Here are my earwarmers together and I simply adore this beautiful color combination. Don't you agree with me?I am very proud of how this project came out. Earwarmers are very trendy lately and I always feel a sense of accomplishment when I can combine something traditional like the art of crochet with the latest fashion trends.

I hope you guys like this pattern and have fun making your own earwarmer. You can try the basic three strands braid or if you are familiar with braiding techniques, you can even try to make a four or five strands crochet braided earwarmer. Tag me on facebook , twitter , if you are going to use this pattern, I would love to see your version of these cabled earwarmers. Happy braiding time to everyone and see you to the next post!!

Snow white|Crochet ribbed beanie

Until now I have always made my pom poms using the Clover pom pom maker, but lately I saw faux fur pom poms are being very popular. You can see them used in thousand ways, as keyrings or charms for bags, as edging for long scarves and of course on top of chunky beanies. As a pom pom lover, I couldn’t help following this fashion trend, which inspired me to create such a basic, still cute accessory for the next winter season.

To make this beanie I used some Relax yarn I had left from my previous Valerie infinity scarf and I must say it was such a great choice since I was able to end my project using only a ball of yarn. Besides being cheap, which is always a plus for crochet projects, this pattern is also super quick and easy. Even a newbie knowing only the basic stitches can follow it without any problems.

Even if the recommended size for my yarn was a 6 mm crochet hook, I have used a 4.5mm size in order to get a more defined ribbed look and also a stretchy texture.

I started by chaining 46 and remember that the initial number of stitches you crochet will define the length of your beanie.

row1 : ch1 and turn your work. 1 sc in each stitch along.

row2-32 : ch1 and turn your work. Sc in the back loop of each stitch along.

At the end of row 32 leave a long tale to close up the beanie. Using a yarn needle start going in and out of each stitch along the short side of your rectangle shape. Then pull it tightly and you’ll see your beanie take shape.

Now we need to close the body of our beanie. To bring closer the edge of my beanie I used the clover stitch markers and then, I simply started sewing along.

Once you have done, just fold the lower part of your beanie for about 4cm to create this beautiful band edging.

Since the edging looked a bit unfinished, I also made a row of reverse single crochet all the way around to complete the look.

My beautiful long faux fur pom pom is from Cowling Country Crafts Etsy shop. I really liked this shop, it provides a great selection of fur pom poms in different sizes and different colors and shades.

Sandra the owner, has been very professional. I had my product delivered in only few days and I also appreciated the padded mailing envelope my pom pom came in. It showed care even if there was only a pom pom inside.

For my ‘snow white’ beanie, I chose the color ‘Autumn Mink’ , since I loved how the beautiful darker tips blended with the beige neutral color of the pom pom.

Looking for this kind of pom poms, my main question was about how to apply them. ‘Should I sew them or what?’, I kept asking to myself. Well, I was very surprised to find out they come with an automatic closure at their bottom, which makes the assembly easier than I thought.I really love the chunky look of my beanie. The soft rim makes it so comfortable to wear around the head, also the close pattern makes it super warm and cozy. I really think this is the warmest beanie I have ever made, perfect for the freezing winter days especially if you have to stay outside for long time.

I put it on for a walk through the Christmas market and had fun posing for some pics with all the lights and Christmas trees, enjoying the magical atmosphere of these weeks.

I hope you guys like this pattern too. Let me know if you are going to use it for Christmas gifts or for yourself. Let me know also if you are familiar with faux fur pom poms or if you use a different technique to make them. Meantime I wish you a happy crocheting time and see you to the next post…bye!!!!

Crochet mittens

Together with beanies and scarves, mittens are my favourite winter accessory. They look so cute, a glamorous alternative to gloves to protect my hands from getting super dry and scratchy, especially during the coldest and windiest days. This is why with some yarn I had left from my previous pumpkin cowl, I decided to crochet a pair of warm and cozy mittens.

The pattern I used is very easy and it works up really fast, since I was able to complete this project in a couple of evenings after work. This makes it perfect also for Christmas gifts or last-minute presents.

It is a pattern worked downwards, from the finger tips to the cuffs and the only stitches you need to know are the half double crochet (hdc) for the body of the mittens , double crochet (dc) and front post/back post double crochet (fpdc/bpdc) for the cuffs.

To make these mittens, I have used the shade 207 of Gomitolo200 yarn and my 5mm crochet hook.

At the beginning I had to deal a bit with establishing the initial number of stitches to make, so I developed a little trick that worked for me to find the perfect fitting for my mittens.

I started with a certain number of stitches worked into a magic circle and then I made two rounds of increases. If after these two rounds I was not able to cover easily the last four fingers of my hand, I came back and changed the initial number of stitches into the magic loop.

At the end here is the pattern I made up for my mittens , which fits an average range of hands sizes. If you have a smaller/bigger hand, simply reduce/increase the initial number of stitches  into the magic loop and you should find your perfect size.

Into a magic circle, let’s make 9 hdc

round 1 : ch2, 2hdc in each stitch around. Sl st into the first hdc. (18 sts)

round 2 : ch2, *1 hdc into the first stitch, 2 hdc into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc (27 sts)

round 3-17 : ch2, 1 hdc into each stitch around. Sl st into the first hdc (27 sts)

round 18 : ch2, 1 hdc into the next 13 stitches. Ch7, skip the next 3 stitches and do hdc until the end of the round. Sl st into the first hdc.

round 19 : ch2, 1 hdc into the next 13 st, 7 hdc into the ch7 space, then hdc until the end of the round. Sl st into the first hdc.

round 20 : ch2, 1 hdc into each stitch around. Sl st into the first hdc.

round 21 : ch3, 1 dc into each stitch around. Sl st into the first dc.

round 22-27 : ch3, 1 fpdc into the stitch below. *1 bpdc into the next stitch, 1 fpdc into the next stitch*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the round. Sl st into the first stitch.

Fasten off your yarn.

Did we forget about the thumb? Of course not. To make it just, insert your hook in any stitch of the hole space you made before. Start making 16 hdc evenly spaced around this hole.

round 1-2: ch1, 1 hdc into each stitch around (16 sts)

round 3 : ch1, *6 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (14 sts)

round 4 : ch1, *5 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (12 sts)

round 5 : ch1, *4 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (10 sts)

round 6 : ch1, *3 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (8 sts)

round 7 : ch1, *2 hdc into the next sts, 1 decrease (2 hdc joined together)*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the round, then sl st into the first hdc. (6 sts)

Fasten off your yarn and close up the little hole that remains.

I am really proud of how my pair of mittens came out. I love their rounded shape, it gives them such a sweet and cozy look which makes them simply irresistible.

They also make such a great set with my pumpkin cowl and I am sure I’m gonna wear them together.

Look how beautifully the front post and back post double crochet stitches combine together to create a nice ribbed effect on the cuffs.

I can already see myself walking through the street this winter wearing my mittens with a hot cup of tea in my hands.

I really hope you guys like this pattern. Let me know if you too find mittens adorable and if you are going to use this pattern for yourself or for a Christmas present. Meanwhile I wish you a happy crocheting time from the bottom of my heart and see you to the next post. Byeee !!!!

Pumpkin crochet cowl

Few weeks ago I went to my usual yarn store looking for something warm both in colors and texture and I found this beautiful yarn that matches so well the shades of this time of the year. The red and yellow nuances are indeed the same you can see in the leaves falling down and the orange tints, don’t they make you think about the so popular Halloween pumpkins?

So, right on time for fall season, I was inspired to crochet a big and warm cowl to ward off these first chilly and windy days.

Since I love infinity scarves and the way they look once worn, I tried to recreate the same effect on my cowl. I am not a big fan of  ‘choker-style’ cowls, this is why I went for a loose fitting to let my cowl beautifully fall around my neckline in a soft and comfy way.

The yarn I used is the shade 207 of ‘Gomitolo 200’ (yarn ball 200) even if you will need less than 200 gr of yarn to end this project. You are also going to need a 5 mm crochet hook, a yarn needle and some stitch markers, very helpful during the final assembly step.

Let’s begin by making an initial number of chains multiple of 6. Keep in mind that this number will determine the loosiness of the cowl around your neckline. I chained 102.

The pattern I used is  a variation of the very easy and popular V-stitch and it is called ‘no space double crochet V-stitch’ pattern. You might know that usually a V-stitch is made by working 1dc, 1ch and 1 dc all in the same stitch. Well, in the ‘no space V stitch’ there is no chain between one dc and the other, because the V-stitch is worked in the space between the two double crochet of the row below.

row 1 : 2 dc in the 4th chain from the hook (this create the V-stitch). *Sk 1 chain and make 2 dc in the next chain*. Keep repeating from *to* until there are two chains left. At this point, skip the next chain and make 1 dc in the very last stitch.

row 2 – 38 : ch3 and turn your work. 2 dc in the space between the 2 dc (V-stitch) of the row below. Repeat all across the V-stitches below. Then 1dc in the last stitch.

At the end of row 38 you will have a long rectangle. Fold it in half along the longest side of it and sew the ends along the shortest sides. You may use stitch markers to help keep the two ends together.

I am crazy in love with my cowl. I adore it, it came out just the way I had it in my mind. I put it on for a relaxing walk through a beautiful, wild path only few minutes away from our home and I had so much fun when I noticed I was perfectly in tune with the nature background. Don’t you think the same?

I am sure I’ll use this pattern again, it’s so easy and quick that will be perfect to make Christmas presents. I am already thinking about using different shades of this yarn and I can’t wait to try it and show you the result. I hope you like this pattern too and till the next post I wish you every good and a happy crocheting time. Love you all !

Fringe scarf…

Last year you saw me post a picture of this beautiful Katia cotton cashmere thread, with the promise of a coming soon blog post about the project I was making with it.

Well, it turned out I need to study a little bit more for ‘that’ project, and in the end after several trials and frogs, I let my yarn rest for almost a year. Few weeks ago I took it back and decided to use it to make an accessory very useful in this time of the year, a light scarf perfect to wear during the breezy springy nights out.

To make this scarf I have used the shade n.56 of KATIA CONCEPT thread, which is a mix of 90% cotton and 10% cashmere perfect for spring/summer projects. Usually 100% cotton threads result in quite rigid and tight works, while on the contrary this is very soft , light and gentle on skin thanks to the cashmere presence and since I have used it I cannot resist to the temptation of caressing it and squezze my face in it!!!

But now let’s move to the pattern. I have used 5 balls of thread (250 gr) and my trusty summer friend, my 4.5mm hook. I started by chaining 33 and then I followed this nice pattern I found on the net.

The pattern is multiple of 3 and I would call it a rivisited V stitch pattern, since it is practically a V stitch where one side of the V is made of a puff stitch and the other side is a double crochet. I really enjoyed making it and I absolutely love the openwork pattern that came out, I find it very unique and something you don’t see often.  

Ch 33

row1 :  ch3 (it counts as the first dc), ch1, 1 puff stitch into the 5th chain from hook. *Skip the next two stitches and do 1 dc into the next one. Ch 1 and do 1 puff stitch into the same stitch below*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row. Dc into the very last stitch.

row 2 : ch3 (it counts as the first dc) and turn your work. Ch 1 and do 1 puff stitch into the dc stitch below. *Skip the next two stitches and do 1 dc into the next one (it should be the dc below), ch 1 and puff stitch into the same stitch below*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Dc into the top ch below which counted as the first dc.

Keep repeating row1-row2 until you reach the desired length for your scarf. I did it for a total of 155 rows.

At this time I wanted to customize a bit my scarf by attaching some fringes at the ends of it. I never tried it before and I was so happy to learn a new technique and apply it to my brand new scarf.

Start taking a square shape which will define the size of your fringe. I took a simple notebook and started wrapping my thread around it.

The times you wrap your thread will vary the size and the chunkiness of your fringe. Since my scarf is very light and it is for spring outfits, I thought big fringes just didn’t suit it, so I wrapped my thread 5 times. Then cut your strands and fold them in half to form a loop at one end.

Take your hook and insert it into the stitch you want to place your fringe in and draw the loop through that stitch.

Yarn over the loose ends of your yarn and pull everything out.

That’s it!! I am sure you are really going to have fun doing that. I found it very relaxing to do while watching a movie  !!!!

Now my scarf is ready to be carried around and taken out every time I am out with friends, tasting the first summer nights out and a fresh breeze catches us by surprise.

I really hope you like this pattern. I found it a nice alternative to infinity scarves, which are the only ones I have made since I am crocheting. Plus, I was really proud to have learned how to attach fringes to crochet projects. It's a very useful technique you can apply even for blankets, vests or bags! Let me know if you are going to try your hands at this project too! I love you all and see you to the next post..byeee!

Mummy, baby…& me scarf

Few months ago, I happened to know a nice coincidence that links my colleague to her daughter. They were born on the same day, obviously in different years. So while my colleague is happily enjoying her thirties, her daughter blew out her first candle. My colleague set a wonderful b-day party hoping to make that day unforgettable for her and her baby. I wanted to contribute in making their day special as well, so I thought to gift them with matching mummy and baby scarves.

mummyscarfbaby-scarfscarvesSince my colleague is a very sporty type, I wanted an easy to pair color and this blue jeans yarn from Rugby (colour n.14) was just the perfect match. I have used 3 and a half balls (350 grams) and my 8 mm crochet hook.

yarnsFor the toddler scarf, instead, I used some yarn left from my Valerie scarf I really love the creamy color of this yarn and the fact that is extremely soft , antiallergic and delicate on baby skin. For it I used less than a ball and my trusty 6 mm hook.

Here are the patterns I made up for these beautiful scarves. They are very simple, and considering that I ended them in less than a week working on them only in the evening after work, I may say they are really quick.

Mummy scarf

For this pattern we are going to need an even number of chains. I made a foundation of 150 chains

row 1: ch1, 1 hdc into the second ch from the hook, *ch1, skip the chain below , 1hdc into the next chain*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row.

row2-18 : ch1 and turn your work. *Ch 1, skip the stitch below and do 1hdc into the next ch 1 space*. Repeat from * to* until the end of the row. Sc into the very last stitch

Once you are happy with the fitting of your scarf, join the two ends of it and start sewing them. Now your scarf should be ready to be wrapped around your neck and keep you extra warm!!!

Baby scarf

Begin your project by making a foundation of 146 chains. It may seem a little weird the fatc that for both the mummy and the baby scarf, the number of initial chains is almost the same, but it’s only due to the fact that the yarn we use for the toddler scarf is thiner .

row 1: ch1, 1 hdc into the second ch from the hook, *ch1, skip the chain below , 1hdc into the next chain*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row.

row2-12 : ch1 and turn your work. *Ch 1, skip the stitch below and do 1hdc into the next ch 1 space*. Repeat from * to* until the end of the row. Sc into the very last stitch

My colleague really liked their matching gift and her baby too, since she kept moving her head toward, proudly taking all the compliments of the party guests.

It’s been a long time since I haven’t made something for myself as well. For years my knit like infinity scarf it’s been my daily winter accessory but I really wanted a renewing. This is why I decided to crochet the ‘mummy scarf’ even for myself using this beautiful dusty rose yarn from Rugby.

my-scarfI really love the color of this yarn and was surprised to see how versatile it is. It matches perfectly my brownish coat and I think it will look adorable even with a giant, oversized neutral cardigan for more springy outfits.

me2mevalerioI am so proud of how these gifts turned out and the happiness on my colleague’s face when she received them was just priceless. She really liked the idea of her and her baby walking around , wearing the same accessory. For sure now they’ll have even something more to share together.

Anyway talking about sharing and coincidences, I have a similar story too since I share my birth date with my grandpa. Do you have similar stories too and do you think there’s some kind of explanation between them? I am really curious to know your experiences and opinions, in the meantime I wish you a happy crocheting time and keep tuned since sooner I’ll be sharing my first spring project!!!! Love you all byeeee
