Fall crochet and some jewelry

I didn’t post lately, but I had some time (and nice yarn) to #crochet and #bead.

This project took me a while to accomplish, but I made it (finally). It is a #tunic or #dress in #fall colors (green, beige, and orange) with some nice spirals in front:

#fashion crochet

It is olive green and a bright orange (but not really neon). Link to my etsy shop. Available in my alittlemarket boutique too.

And a huge #granny square blouse or vest for #winter or fall:

#black granny square hippie boho blouse / vest

It is soft and warm acrylic yarn (mostly acrylic, it might have some wool), and a pretty pattern:)) On the back same granny, minus those 2 flowers from shoulders.

And some cuties in pink or just nice bright colors:

spiral earrings with copper findings

And an assorted bracelet with flowers and beads:

And a pink #purse with a little tatted doily

#bag #purse #pink

It is green, pink, lilac and some light yellow with a flower button. More pictures you can find on links  or in my shops, this is a free account, so limited space I’m afraid.

And I said beading… Just one bracelet, a freeform peyote stitch bracelet in fall colors (yellow, orange, brown)

Crochet & beading

Some new jewelry in my shop and a new halter top in some baby yarn.

Let’s start with the jewelry.

I exercised herringbone stitch with different size beads, and the result is this bracelet:

herringbone stitch #bracelet

The main color beads have some metallic irisations, but they are glass beads.

a little bit too much photoshop here I’m afraid.

And an ocean theme freeform bracelet with some pink quartz chips and sea shells:

and triple spiral necklace:

I added some suggestions for the white dress, diagrams I’m afraid. I don’t have yarn to try all at the moment. I will this month or maybe in July, so… this is all I can do right now.

Cristina My Crochet

wedding dress crochet dress

found on pinterest. Use a 5-6 mm hook (H/I) for something similar with the blue dress. It’s not the same, but close enough.

for the white dress, you can pick any of the ribbon lace/ stripes you like.

Crochet news

Hi there,

I didn’t have enough time to post lately, but I did crochet;)

I made this huge doily, in organic cotton, thick enough to be used as a decorative rug, doily or center table/mat:

2 doily rug3 tapis au crochet

I didn’t block it yet. I wanted to make something repetitive, I was too tired to think:D But I love the result.

And my other doily rugs:

crocheted rug

And a gray version, made to order,

And a cute necklace, on purple with a little flower:

crocheted necklace

And some beaded earrings:

21 22 24 26

Variations on same theme… Tear drop earrings in light purple and white, and golden seed beads and white pearls (faux).

About the white dress, I didn’t have time to make something, but I found this nice motif (works better in smaller size, for large you will need a bigger hook or more stripes…).

Better quality image, black points are picots. You can mix those 2 motifs or use a single one, or just another one similar.

(link to Pinterest, where I found this one), but you can right click on image and search with google for more similar motif (some millions will result, so have fun picking one:)

Happy crafting everyone!
