Hexagon flower baby blanket - new pattern

Pin It





I finally managed to complete the hexagon blanket that I started ages ago and list it in the shop. Actually it was the photographing and editing the pattern part that was pending for a long time.  I used the join as you go method to join the hexagons. The pattern includes lots of photos. As always they are available in my Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry shops.

Carrot boy

Pin It



After a long gap I added one more pattern to my amigurumi shop. His name is Cary and he is a sweet little carrot boy. I finished him long time ago but then forgot about him. This is what happens when you work on so many projects at the same time. Actually I was planning to create few other veggie friends for Cary but got distracted with other things and so for now Cary is left alone without any veggie friends.

You can buy the pattern from here, here and here.

Spring flower headband - free pattern

Pin It

Our part of the world has said goodbye to spring. This year we enjoyed an unusually extended period of spring but now the temperature is steadily rising and day by day it's getting hotter and hotter.


Here is a pretty spring inspired headband pattern for you to enjoy. The headband can be made to fit any head size. I used sport weight yarn in 4 colors and 3.5 mm hook. You can use any yarn and a suitable hook.

The pattern is written using American terms.

Abbreviations used: ch - chain, sl st - slip stitch, sc - single crochet, hdc - half double crochet, dc - double crochet, ch-sp - chain space

cluster - 2 dc stitches worked together in same space.

Instruction  
Headband

Row 1: Using green ch 5, cluster in last ch from hook. Turn.
Row 2: Ch 5, cluster in top of cluster. Turn.

Repeat row 2 until you have reached the desired length. Fasten off yarn. You can either sew the ends together or sew a button to one end. Weave in the loose ends.


Flower 
Round 1: Using yellow, make a magic ring (or) ch 2 and 8 sc in 2nd ch. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Fasten off.
Round 2: Join red in any sc and sc in same sc, [ch 5, sc in next sc] 8 times.
Round 3: [sc, hdc, 3 dc, hdc, sc] in each 5ch-sp. Fasten off.
Round 4: Join pink and sc in each st around. Fasten off and weave in all the loose ends.


Sew the flower on the headband.


Happy weekend!

Tapestry crochet phone case and discount sale

Pin It

Before I tell you about the sale offer in my shops let me show you the phone case that I made. I love tapestry crochet. It's such a great technique although quite messy. My dream project is to make a colorful tapestry wall art but what holds me back from starting one is the thought of messy heap of tangled yarns that I'll have to deal with. 

   
Anyway for now I have this phone case to admire. The design is my own. 


I'm giving 50% off on all the scarf, cowl and shawl patterns in my online shops at Etsy, Ravelry as well as Craftsy. You can buy them at the discounted rate as low as $1.50. There are 13 patterns to choose from. This discounted rate will be available until the end of this month. If you are interested you can make use of this offer.

Have a great day!

Hooded cape - new pattern

Pin It

The latest addition to my shop is this gorgeous cape with hood pattern. Though I had completed it long time ago I had been occupied with other things and found the time to list it only now. I used light worsted weight yarn and H hook and it would fit a baby of 6 months to 1.5 to 2 years. The pattern is now listed in my EtsyRavelry and Craftsy stores.


I love this! I never thought that I would enjoy designing baby clothes. I am working on a couple of more baby clothes right now. I am trying very hard to stay away from starting any new project until I finish all the pending ones. 

By the way my textured ripple blanket is finished. I completed it ages ago but I'm still not able to photograph it due to lack of suitable place and time. Some major renovation work has been going on around here and on top of that my in-laws have been visiting us and I have been a little busy lately. I do remember that I promised you a free pattern for the textured ripple but the thought of a lengthy step by step tutorial is just overwhelming right now. I'll do it when I'm more relaxed.

     The hexagon blanket is also at the final stage of completion. I hope to finish it soon. 

Have a nice day!
