Open work crochet Top & Cardigan

I didn’t post too much lately, but I’ve been busy finishing some projects:)

First a new #cardigan / #jacket in shades of #blue:

with a link to my etsy shop

cardigan

and the back:

I used wool (bleu) and acrylic (bleumarine) yarn and a 6.5 mm (K) hook.

Made on length, on 92 stitches (it’s pretty long), double crochet and 2 rows of cross stitch. The cowl is double V stitch: 2dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the same st. It’s a 12 cm wide band around, and for the sleeves too.

And this is the top, in spring and summer colors:

Happy New Year and my purple obsession

New Year, new set:) On purple, but not only. I made some hats and scarves with the yarn which Santa gave me.

So let me introduce you my new creations!

First a hat with little flowers, on purple, green, and white:

and two assorted scarves:

esarfa 11

This is the first one. As you can see can be worn as a collar or necklace or as a neckwarmer.

It is also available on my etsy shop, I just listed it.

And the second one, in same colors:

scarf + hat scarf1

it’s a tubular neckwarmer worked in V stitch with a 6.5 mm hook (K/10/12)on 78 stitches;). I will list it tonight;)

And the hat for the challenge, ofc:

This is a lavender purple;) Looks great. I used Red Heart Baby soft 2 strands and a 6.5 mm hook (K/10/ 12) and 76 sts. (52 for visor) .

The pattern is on yarnspiration.com. Patons. I found the link: http://www.yarnspirations.com/women-s-peaked-cap.html

About my new WIP(s) next time:)

a doily rug or blanket and some slippers.

And you have the stitch I used. It’s a little bit tricky, those 2 dc are in the back of the treble on RS (right side) and in front of the treble on the wrong side (US terms).

Not too much for a month, but I will post more often I hope!
