Pink crocheted tank top

Long time no see, but I have news for you:)

Tonight I finished this beauty:

I used a diagram found on Pinterest, but I modified first rounds.

I started with 90 chains and a 5(H/8) mm hook for size M/L. For smaller/bigger size change the hook and/or change the number of beginning chains (80 for S/M, 120 for XXL and so on).

Work in circle:

Round 1: 1 dc crochet in each chain around, close ring.

Round 2:  ch 3, *cross stitch, ch 1 (to increase)* in each st, and repeat, close circle.

Round 3: ch 3 (counts as a dc), 1 dc in each st around.

Split your work in 4 equal parts.

For the front:

Chain 4, sc in 3rd st, repeat 9 times.

Row 1: ch 3 (doesn’t count as dc), 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc around first ch 4, ch 3, 11 dc around 3rd ch 4 from previous row, ch 3, 2 dc, ch2, 2dc around 5th ch 4, ch 3, 11 dc around 7th ch4, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc around 9th ch4.

Row 2: ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2dc in first ch 2 from previous round, *ch 3, 1 dc, ch 1 in each next 11 dc, ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in next ch 2*, repeat * * one more time.

And now you can follow the diagram.

I’ll be back with some new dresses, shortly I hope, because I have few days off and I can craft:D. Maybe some jewelry too…

Jar cover

As I promised, small projects;) What about a jar cover or jar candle cover? It can be used as a glass cover or mug as well.

Let me show you:

jar cover black jar cover day light glass+black jar candle cover jar candle cover 2 jar cover 3

It fits to 350-450 g jars and a normal water glass or an x-long one.  height 10 cm (4 inches) for the cover and the stitch is stretch, if you don’t work too tight, so check your tension:) ( I mean check with your jar or glass):

I used a 3 mm hook and crochet thread Num 6, says on label:D

Chain 8, form a ring:

ch 8 form a ring

 

Round 1: ch3 (count as a dc), 15 dc in ring, join in 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3. (16 dc)

ch 3 15 dc in ring

Round 2: ch 4 (1 dc +ch 1), *dc in next st, ch 1*, repeat 14 more times (16 dc, ch 1 groups); join with sl st in 3rd ch from the beginning ch 3.

round 2 ch 4, dc in next st, ch 1, repeat 15 more timesround 2 join

 

Round 3: ch 4 (1d+ch 1), dc in next ch 1 space, dc, ch 1, dc in next ch1 space- it’s the V-stitch- and the ch 1 space means the hole formed between those 2 dc from Round 2. Anyway, dc, ch1, dc in each ch 1 space around. Join. (16 V-stitches).

round 3

Round 4: ch 3 (count as dc), *3 dc , ch 3, 3 dc in next V-stitch (in the ch 1 space), dc in next V-stitch,* repeat around and join: you will have an 8 petals flower (which can be used as a potholder):

round 4 joined

 

Round 5: ch 3, 3 dc, ch3, 3 dc in next ch 3 space, *dc in next dc, 3 dc, ch 3, 3dc in next ch 3 space*, repeat *_* around.

*Rounds 6 – 16 repeat Round 4.

Finishing: Round 17: ch 1, sc in same st, sc in each next 3 sts, 2 sc together, and repeat around. If you work very tight, you don’t need to decrease.

I hope that I didn’t miss anything. If you have any problem, just let me know…

Now, I finally finished  my yoke dress. (Finally, because I started it last year…)

It is full handmade:

rochie 1rochie 2

rochie 3 yoke back yoke detail cup

And I will make an assorted purse for it:D And this is for myself.

 

Shrug

I use crochet thread (label says Nm 6, 34 sc x 10 rows = 10 x 10 cm, 4 x 4 inch) and a 3 mm hook. I have 4 skeins, 327 yds per skein (or 300 m).

First I found a nice granny with a little flower in the middle. It is a 6 cm granny ( this is the gauge:D), that means 2.2 inch.

and the #pattern for it:

shrug granny

 

I made  few, 11, and then I joined 5, for a XS – S size (31 cm after joining) ( for M-L you will need 6, and maybe some extra rounds of dc/sc, depends on your size, XL or more 7 grannies and so on):

After joining I made 2 rows of sc to equalize, and 1 row : cluster of 3 alternating cross stitch ( just in case I want to use a ribbon or a belt), then I started pattern:

For the shape, this is the back, I don’t know yet, you can choose your favorite, same for edgings

Fingerless mittens pattern

Sorry for the delay! About the fingerless mittens pattern:

manusi mov

I used Angora Alize 2 strands first time, now I will use Red Heart Margareta or Mohair 2 strands, 50 g / 300 yds per skein (you need a medium weight yarn), and a 5 mm (H/8) crochet hook.

Level: Beginners intermediate. 2-4 hours project, so I hope it isn’t too late for last minute gifts:D

A new raid on Internet looking for something cute to make this weekend

Let’s see what I found :pendant or earring

First some beaded earrings or pendant, looks good for me, I will give a try later.

Next, 104563418_large_a99857f2489a89e35972ee2ee12f5273 (1) is a very nice shawl, lace crochet with fans, my favorites.

And the last one for now should be a tatting something I guess, but I prefer this:

0_8f592_c592aefa_XLwith a chart which says it belongs to someone from Russia, but I found it on a brazilian image host site…0_8f595_3de3ee77_L

And other cute things, with charts or only for inspiration100717166_large_77100717167_large_78100717168_large_7998904641_large_065459e095e1e29ed5f821f38e3f5bef100279995_large_35894530481_large_441567694530483_large_1778253pp-zelpp-zel2

The dress and the sunflower blanket, vintage or not, are absolutely gorgeous!

Now choose your project and have fun!
