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!

Little pink dress

Pin It

Lately I have developed a passion towards baby clothes. I had been satisfied with designing accessories and had always thought that designing a clothing item was not an easy job, and to prove it right it took me a very long time to figure out how to construct a simple dress. I was not a determined learner. I gave up too easily. Then one fine day I decided to push my boundaries and once I learnt the nuances everything appeared so very simple.


This is my first official dress pattern. A very simple and easy one. I have written the pattern for 3 sizes - 3 to 6 months, 6 to 12 months and 1 to 2 years. I have listed the pattern in my Etsy shop. 

And that hanger cover that you see in the photo above was crocheted by me. I wanted something cute to display the dress. So I made it hurriedly. I have a few more small plastic hangers. May be I'll make  some more in different colors.

Hexagon with flower - free pattern

Pin It

My first post for this year after one long month shows what a lazy blogger I am. Actually by the beginning of the year we had taken a short vacation to visit our parents but even after coming back it took me such a long time to get back into the groove. Whenever I stay away from the internet for a considerable period of time I find it very difficult to get back to my blogging routine. I felt as if I had fallen out of blogosphere and was really lost as to where to start and what to say. So I decided to give myself some more time. Anyway I'm happy now that I have something to share with you.

  
I used fingering weight yarns and size D/3.25 mm hook. The finished hexagon measures approximately 6.5 inches across.

I have written the pattern using American terms.

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

Cluster - here means 2 dc stitches worked together in same space.

Instruction
Using yellow ch 4 and join with a sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 3, dc into ring, ch 4, (cluster, ch 4) 5 times into ring. Join with a sl st to 1st cluster.
Round 2: Join pink in any 4ch-sp, (sc, hdc, 5 dc, hdc, sc) in each space. Join to 1st sc.

Round 3: **ch 6, sc in next space between 2 petals** Repeat from ** to ** around. Push these chains behind the petals. Fasten off yarn.
Round 4: Join dark pink in any 6ch-sp and (sc, hdc, 4 dc, ch 1, 4 dc, hdc, sc) in each space.
Round 5: Join white and sc in same st, ch 7, **sc in ch 1 at the center of petal, ch 7, sc between next 2 petals, ch 7** Repeat from ** to ** around. Join the last ch 7 with a sl st to beginning of round.
 
Round 6: (cluster, ch 3, cluster) in same st, **(sc, ch 3, sc) in next 7ch loop, (cluster, ch 3, cluster) in next sc** Repeat from ** to ** around. Join with a sl st to the top of 1st cluster.
Round 7: **(cluster, ch 3, cluster, ch 3, cluster) in next 3ch-sp, ch 3, sc in next 3 ch-sp, (ch 5, sc in next 3ch-sp) twice, ch 3, ** Repeat from ** to ** around. Join with a sl st to 1st cluster.
Round 8: Sl st in next space, **ch 5, sc in next sp, (ch 3, sc in next sp) 5 times** Repeat from ** to ** 5 more times.
Round 9: Sl st in next sp, **ch 5, sc in same sp, (ch 5, sc in next sp) 6 times** Repeat from ** to ** 5 more times.   
Round 10: Join blue and **(sc, ch 5, sc, ch 7, sc, ch 5, sc) in next 5ch-sp (corner space), 3 sc in each of the next 6 spaces** Repeat from ** to ** around.   

This pretty lacy hexagon motif can be transformed into a potholder, doily or afghan. I hope you enjoy the pattern. If you come across any errors please do let me know so that I can correct it.
