Leafly autumn hat

    My latest design: the Leafly autumn hat! When I made my third Frozen winter (bun) hat last year, I noticed the extreme drop stitch looks like a leaf upside down. Especially when you use a brown color. So I decided to reverse the pattern, starting from the top working to the bottom, to make an autumn version of my Frozen Winter hat! I love how one stitch can be used for different seasonal projects. Continue Reading

    Never ending shawl

    never ending shawl free crochet pattern 3
    I made another crochet shawl! Again I used a pretty yarn cake. Actually no matter what crochet shawl you make, every shawl will turn out great with yarn cakes that change colors in a subtle way ghehe. As summer is over, I decided to use darker colors for this shawl. Blue is one of my favorite colors, so I chose a blue/grey/black cake! I think the colors look very chique and it looks great with a simple black (or blue) dress.

    The Never ending Shawl is called ‘never ending’ because you can work on it till you think it’s done! …Or till you run out of yarn like I did. The best thing about this crochet shawl is that you don’t have to focus on following a pattern. All the stitches you need to know for the shawl are single crochet and half double crochet with an increase in the first and last stitch. That’s all! This makes the Never ending Shawl a great project to work on while traveling. I worked on it in the car (while Koen was driving) and train – and of course while watching my favorite Netflix series. Also, if you’re a beginner, this shawl is a very easy and great project to start with! Continue Reading
