round bolero for summer

il_570xn-992972425_2zmt

As you can see I have a new friend modelling:))

For this one I used a 6.5 mm hook (K/10 1/2) and cotton, Catania works great I think.

For the middle: I used a doily diagrambolero center doily

You leave 2 holes for arms when you reach the distance between shoulders + 1 inch (2-4 cm) – I used 39 chains for S/M size (x2), then 2 rounds V stitch and an pineapple motif edging: (you can pick up any edging, I used the last one)

found on pinterest, obvious. Anyway, it’s a round bolero, or doily bolero, and it’s pretty!

Also I made a sunny dress with 3 cute flowers with buttons:

For the top I used this stitch:

And some block stitch for skirt, repeating spiderweb motif:D Any edge you like, see above. I used simple shells.

I hope you like it!

I have some wips but, I don’t have enough time right now….

Anyway my summer collection looks pretty well (my opinion, anyway:D)

New jewelry and crochet

Happy New Year everyone!

I was so busy crafting that I forgot to post lately. I’m sorry for this. Let’s start with my new bracelets and necklaces. Some are listed on etsy or alittlemarket, some, not yet. I didn’t have time.

I hate when they try to translate your website and/or make “improvements” to help you. Grrrrrr. I hate when I want to post and things look different. This is an amethyst necklace with crystals and fimo beads, gemstones and chips. The second one is a Y-necklace, still amethyst:

il_570xn-904619162_3sj3

this one is already listed in my etsy shop.

And some nice bracelets I made

all made in the last two weeks.

About crochet now. I made a cute circular bolero with long sleeves in shades of grey, purple, pink and white:

this one is listed on my etsy shop. It seems that I can’t link anymore, or I don’t know where because they try to translate in Romanian (just trying, the result is a full bullshit). So, next time maybe I will post in my brand new website… I don’t have a pattern for this bolero. I will make another one to see how it works.

 

 

 

 

 

Freeform crochet hats and more

Hi everyone! I didn’t post lately but I worked hard: 2 freeform hats with flowers and spirals, and a skirt, a lattice bracelet and more.

Let me introduce you my hats first:

this one is sold, somewhere in transit. It is a double #freeform #crochet #hat, the back side is dc green.

And the second one, same colors, different shape and flowers:

this one is still available in my etsy shop here. I will double it, I think.

It was really fun to make them. How to do it? Hmm, first decide the color palette and the shape. After these steps, just be crazy, play with yarn, anything is allowed, no more rules. For tips and tricks use any available resource: some free resources are on internet: embellishments on Renate Kirkpatrick’s blog or on Pinterest.

Now my crazy #winter #crochet #skirt:

available here and in my etsy shop.

And a pretty lattice #bracelet, red, obvious, for Christmas:

bracelet-bracelet-joli-en-perles-faux-roug-16521175-bra4-jpg-156d0-0e432_236x236 available on my a little market shop only:here.

About my mittens and some little snowflakes feel free to brows my shops and/or my old posts:) I will be back soon I hope with news!

 

 

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:

#freeform #bracelet

and triple spiral necklace:

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

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:

purple scarf

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:

purple hat 2 purple hat 12

 

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.

 

 

 

Bolero

Fresh from the hook, a new bolero with flowers:

crocheted bolero with flowers

This photo has a link to my etsy shop:) You may visit it for more photos, I will upload here too:

Without links:

bolero front bolero st bolero stt bolero bolero det

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!
