New crochet bucket bag

I must say I liked crocheting this bucket bag with this lovely orange chord yarn, then adding the purple "brimming" and signature heart charm with my logo. It's a shoulder / crossbody bag, just as I like them, rather small but compact, and stiff. I also added an automatic button to safely close it. So would you like to see more of this? 😉

Crochet infinity scarf

In spite of it being so hot here, let me show you how my crochet infinity cowl in jasmine stitch turned out. I used a whole 150 g. cotton yarn cake of ICE Yarn to do it, but it was fun, and the colour blending fantastic. Don't you think?

Crochet: EASIEST way to make the magic ring

How do you make the "magic ring" in crochet? There are a couple of ways, not all of them easy... I remember when I first learned it how difficult it was for me, having to wrap the yarn around your fingers in a specific way, and I don't know, maybe because I was a beginner, but it never came out quite right, or I had to try it a couple of times before it did, so much so that I avoided projects starting with a magic ring. Until I found this method! Let me share this with you. :)

Crochet cowl in jasmine stitch

Now now now... I know I am using this yarn for almost all of my projects, lately, but isn't it stunning? Also, I want to see how it looks with different stitches. This time, the amazing star/jasmine stitch: you don't know how much time and nerves it cost me learning this stitch, but now I master in perfectly, and I think it was worth the trouble. Don't you think? This is another woolen cowl. cowl

NEW crochet log cabin blanket!!

I've been meaning to create another crochet log cabin blanket for a long time now...and now it's here! Well, not overnight, exactly ;). It took me quite some time to complete it, but I got to work on it with no pressure, so I really enjoyed the process. Also, this time I made some slight variations: the blanket is worked with log cabin motifs in the centre, but has 2 colourful lateral bands (worked in moss stitch) on the sides. It is in quality cotton and measures about 185x95 cm. And guess what? It's AVAILABLE in my shop: log cabin blanket

PATTERN Impressive crochet neck warmer back loop slope

Long time, no hear! But here I am again, and with a brand new pattern. I must say I am really enjoying my new activity of pattern maker, and I promise I will always try to bring something new and original to the crochet market.
This impressive neck warmer worked in slopes of single crochet back loops is so much fun to do you almost do not want to finish crocheting it! But once you put it on… what an incredible effect. The neck warmer can easily be adjusted around your shoulders, too, as a cape. I truly hope you will have fun, just like I did, when you create this beautiful item through my pattern. neck warmer

Arm knitting wool blanket

This is a super creative period, for me. I am doing new things, finally I got started with patterns, I am having some good results, at last... Maybe the reason for it is that I always find new things to do with crochet that inspire me, new challenges, and that's what really makes me happy :-). Having said this, you know I did some arm knitting in the past (infinity scarves), but what I really wanted was try it seriously with that beautiful thick wool I hadn't tried sofar. And now I did! This mini blanket (86x60 cm) was knitted using 3 strands of big wool yarn at the same time, and changing colour in the middle. I am quite happy with the result! What do you say? I could put on a pattern for it soon, so watch out ;-). For now, the item is available in my shop: blanket
