Easy chunky shrug…

I have been crocheting for a while, but until now, except for some accessories like scarves and hats, I never tried to make something I can actually wear and use as a fashion piece. I thought it was too difficult and it required much more experience and skills. That turned out to be wrong when, searching on-line for some directions, I run into the Lion Brand free pattern called “ simple shrug” and I was incredibly surprised at how simple and easy it was instead. It only took few days for me to have my cozy shrug done and I couldn’t resist to try it on and enjoy it during the last sunny autumn days.

easy shrug1

easyshrug2

easyshrug3The shrug is worked as a big rectangle folded in half, sewing its sides to create the arm holes. Could you think of something easier than that? Since I wanted a softer texture, I worked my shrug holding two strands of yarn together and to give it a nice ribbing look I worked in the back loops only.ribbinglook

Choosing the color for my shrug was the most difficult part of all the work, but at the end I went for a white yarn to make it combinable with most of my outfit.

 What you’ll need :

  • 800 gr of Nordika yarn in a white color
  • 12 mm crochet hook
  • 6 mm crochet hook
  • scissors

ProvaHolding two strand of yarn together, the first step is to make the foundation chain. Remember that the initial number of chains will be the length of your shrug (from your shoulder to your waste). In my case I chained 50 for a total length of approximately 25’’ (63 cm).

row1 : ch1, sc in the back loops all the way around.

row2-end : ch1 and turn your work, sc in the back loops all along.

Keep repeating row 2 until your piece measures approximately 30’’ (77 cm). Remember that the number of rows will affect the width of your shrug, meaning that adding rows you will have a longer sleeves shrug, reducing them you will have shorter sleeves.measuresOnce you have your rectangle ready, fold it in half paying attention to the fact that your rows run vertically, otherwise your shrug will be very short and wide. For the arm holes, make 10 sc into the two shorter sides of your rectangle and once you have done turn it inside out.foldedshrugTo finish my shrug, I used my 6mm hook to add four edging rows of sc worked into the back loops as well.crochetshrug

baackshrugTo be my first attempt, I am really proud of how my shrug came out. It fits me perfectly and it looks exactly the way I expected. There are also so many ways in which you can customize it, like you can make it using a single thread, you can add more edging rows and create a warm collar on your shrug or you can add some edging rows to the arm holes too. I hope you guys like this pattern too because I am already thinking about making a new one on a different color! Happy crocheting my dear and see you to the next post…bye XX.

Crochet coin purse pattern…

I have always had a weak for kiss clasps! They remind me of my childhood when my grandma used to open her leather kiss clasped coin purse and gave me money for ice cream or candies. Since then the nice ‘click’ sound of the frame’s opening became for me totally addictive and growing up I couldn’t resist to their romantic and vintage look.

crochet coin purse 1

crochted coin purseAfter having looked around all the craft stores in my hometown and never found it, I finally bought the frame from an online shop on Dawanda.com. I have never used this website before, but my first experience with it was absolutely positive. The shop’s owner, a Portuguese lady was so kind and also helped me in the purchase ( I had some problems with my pay pal account). She has such a great selection of items for your craft projects, that I felt overwhelmed and wanted to buy everything. This bronze curved frame just caught my heart and I thought that it would have been the right combination of romanticism and vintage.

sew on frameThe pattern for this coin purse is very easy and it is worked holding two strands of cotton thread together. I also used two different shades of green color and two different thread thicknesses. This is completely optional, but I like to experiment new techniques and the mix of color and thickness that came out made me very proud!

What you’ll need :

  • 8.5 cm coin purse frame
  • 50 gr of cotton thread in the color you prefer (A)
  • 50 gr of cotton thread thinner than (A) and of a lighter shade (B)
  • 3.5 mm hook
  • needle

Holding (A) and (B) in a magic loop make 6 sc

row1: ch1, 2sc in each stitch around. Sl st into the first ch (12)

row2: ch1, *1sc into the very next st, 2 sc into the next one*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row, then sl st into the first ch. (18)

row3: ch1, *1sc into the next 2 st, 2 sc into the next one*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row, then sl st into the first ch. (24)

row4: ch1, *1sc into the next 3 st, 2 sc into the next one*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row, then sl st into the first ch. (30)

row5: ch1, *1sc into the next 4 st, 2 sc into the next one*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row, then sl st into the first ch. (36)

row6: ch1, *1sc into the next 5 st, 2 sc into the next one*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row, then sl st into the first ch. (42)

row7: ch1, *1sc into the next 6 st, 2 sc into the next one*. Repeat from *to* until the end of the row, then sl st into the first ch. (48)

row8-18: ch1, 1 sc in each st around. At the end of each row sl st into the first ch. (48)

Fasten off the cotton threads

At the end of row 18 your coin purse will look like a little basket 5-6 cm high and that will be the time for the frame to be attached. Open your frame and fit it with the top of the coin purse just crocheted making the holes of the sew-on frame match the stitches beneath. Insert your needle in one stitch and in the hole of the frame.

crochet coin purseI love how cute is this coin purse , I can’t wait to make others using other frames from la mercerie portugaise trying different shapes and patterns. I will update you as soon as I will make them, in the meantime try to make your own little purse and let me know if once you have done it you find less unpleasant to use your coins!!! XX

Slouchy beanie…

Looking at my hats collection I then realized I do not have one in a black color. This surprising observation came with the unexpected finding of two balls of black yarn completely new into my yarn storage box. Just coincidence? My mum would probably call it ‘a cosmic mess’ , but anyway I decided to kill two birds with one stone giving to those balls a reason to exist and filling my closet gap 🙂

basco1To make this beret I have used 100 gr of Witico black yarn ( 50% wool, 50% acrylic) and my 3.5 mm crochet hook.

basco2The final size that came out fits an adult head circumference of approximately 54-56 cm. Here below is the pattern I made up for this cute beanie, give it a try and let me know if it is clear enough. Personally I found it a bit difficult writing the pattern in words, but I did my best! However if you are more a ‘chart-type’ I will improvise a drawn pattern! Have fun my loved crocheters and see you to the next post ! XX

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.

hoodie8

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 *.*

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_0033

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

Lovely Ruffled Skirt…

My little niece is my favorite model. She is 2 years old and she loves ‘flying skirts’. When I heard it for the first time, my only thought was about how surprising can be a child’s imagination since this is the name she uses for ruffled skirts. Until that moment I never crocheted a skirt, especially a ‘flying one’, but I took up the challenge and tried to make one for her. After three weeks working, here is the final result and judging from her excitement I really can say that the mission was accomplished!

DSC01828

Here is the pattern I made up for this skirt and if you are a beginner don’t give up! This was my first skirt project too, so let’s get started!!

What you'll need:

  • 250 gr of cotton in the color you prefer. I chose the green mint color.
  • 1.75 mm crochet hook;
  • elastic band ;
  • ribbon;
  • 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 the total length of the skirt. If you don’t have the opportunity to take these measures directly from your model this can be the most difficult part. This is why I usually follow this table especially when my project is a gift.

Senzanome

Once you have all the measures, make a foundation chain long as the hips width you measured or you got from the table (in my case it was 55 cm). Join to the first chain with a slip stitch to form a circle, making sure your work doesn’t twist.

 Rounds 1-12 : ch 1 (it counts as the first sc), sc in each stitch around. Sl st into the first chain.

Rounds 13-20 : ch 3 (the first 2 ch count as the first dc), skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch.*Ch 1, skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Sl st into the second ch.

Round 21: ch 3 (the first 2 ch count as the first dc), skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch. *Ch 1, skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch. (repeat 5 times). Ch 1, skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch, ch1, dc in the same stitch*. (first increase). Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Sl st into the second ch.

Rounds 22-28 : ch 3 (the first 2 ch count as the first dc), skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch. *Ch 1, skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Sl st into the second ch.

Round 29: ch 3 (the first 2 ch count as the first dc), skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch. *Ch 1, skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch. (repeat 5 times). Ch 1, skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch, ch1, dc in the same stitch*. (first increase). Repeat from * to * until the end of the row. Sl st into the second ch.

Rounds 30-36 : ch 3 (the first 2 ch count as the first dc), skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch. *Ch 1, skip the next stitch, dc in the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * until the end of the row.Sl st into the second ch.

For the ruffles I was inspired by the pattern I found on Olga Verenich blog http://www.liveinternet.ru/users/4768064/blog . They will be attached to rounds 13-21-29-36.

ruffles

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 you’ve done!

You can leave the skirt like this or you can add some belt loops and embellish them with a ribbon. I also bought a white t-shirt and I sewed two little crocheted butterflies on the collar. And here is the final outfit!

skirt ruffles

 Now I can only wish you happy crocheting! I can’t wait to see all the pictures of your handmade skirts and the way you customized them. If you have any questions about the pattern, leave a comment and I’ll be pleased to answer as soon as I can. Keep in touch my dear friends and see you next time!
