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:

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!

Crocheted necklaces #2

Do you remember my finds for holidays? If not, try here https://cristinamycrochet.wordpress.com/2013/12/21/some-inspiration-for-holydays/

Why do I ask?? Because finally I tried one of those necklaces. And it works pretty good. I made it in black and sparkling grey with some magatma beads. I used cotton for embroidery and metallic thread (it’s not really metallic, it’s just sparkling grey with some black) and a 1.75 mm steel hook.

Let me to introduce you my latest creation;))

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:
