Elaborate Spring Beanie - 3-6 months {free crochet pattern}

Thursday 5 March 2015

Today, I let my creativity go wild and I created this really elaborate pattern for a spring beanie. I started with a small size for 3-6 month babies, and I will work my way up to adult size :) Don't get scared away by the pattern, after the first 6 rows, you just repeat 2-rows-pattern.

Puff stitch with 3 dc

This is a really easy and basic stitch that looks great in many crochet projects. So once you've learned it you can use it again and again :) I am not really a video-person so here is a written explanation:

Basically, you make 3 unfinished (only the first half) double crochet in one stitch, yarn over once more and draw yarn through all 4 loops that remained on your hook.

Step 1: Yarn over (yo), insert hook in st, yo, draw yarn through st, yo, draw yarn trough 2 loops (first unfinished dc, 2 loops remain on your hook)

Step2: Repeat Step 1 two more times, in the same stitch (3 unfinished dc, 4 loops remain on your hook)

Step 3: Yo, draw yarn through all four loops on your hook and your first puff stitch is finished :)

  • 5.0 mm crochet hook 
  • Yarn: 1 skein of Tiago from Schachenmayr original in custard yellow 
  • Gauge  4": 12dc in 4 rows 
  • Yarn needle 

Just a rainbow day {free printable}

Friday 27 February 2015

Make the small things matter and your life will be much nicer. We all have "not such great days" sometimes. So even if seeing a rainbow is the only nice thing that happened today, make it matter. Let the rainbow (or any other minor, seemingly unimportant event) turn your whole day into a "good day" :)

Schnuffi - The Litte French Dog (Crochet Pattern)

Thursday 26 February 2015

My newest addition to my crochet pattern is this cute little french dog, called Schnuffi. Do you know the series about Miffy the rabbit?  Well she has a little dog, and her name is Schnuffi in the German version. Elise loves the show and really wanted to have her own Schnuffi.

I don't think they look much alike, but that wasn't my goal anyway.I really love the small hat and scarf that can be taken off, which Elise loves to do. So a little hint: make sure the ears are sewn on really tightly, otherwise they might come off with the hat :)
