Mandala Madness CAL English!

Last week I finally completed the Mandala Madness CAL that I started in the beginning of 2016. I have been working on it inbetween other projects and sometimes it has been resting due to me knowing I made a mistake and mustering up energy to frog 🙂 This is by far the most fun crochet project I have ever made and I thought I would do a quick post to brag about the result 🙂 Continue reading “Mandala Madness CAL English!”

The Trondheim Shawl!

Klicka här för svenska

A couple of years ago I spent some weeks in a beautiful Norwegian city called Trondheim, working as a nurse. In my free time I explored the city and surroundings and I found a fabulous yarn store. Norway is famous for wool yarn and knitting, and I brought home some gorgeous Norwegian wool yarn. This Christmas I finally got to try some of it out and the Trondheim Shawl was born. I am so happy with the result I want to share the pattern with you guys! Continue reading “The Trondheim Shawl!”

Kajsa’s Clean Afghan Border and trying to get CAL blocks the same size!

Svenska här

Finally I’m done with the Moogly CAL 2015 and my cat Smirrnoff is super happy with the result, and so am I! The afghan is really big because I wasn’t able to figure out how to get all the blocks the same size. I measured and measured but after blocking they still came out differently so at the end I had to use the largest one as a template and add rounds to the other ones…

Tutorial standing half double crochets and double crochets made easier!

Svenska här

When starting a new round/ row you usually start with chains to build hight for your stitches. This method makes it pretty obvious where  the row or round starts.

I have been using this method when starting a round or row of double crochets and half double crochets in a new colour to make the start invisible. I like this method a lot but find it difficult to crochet into this particular stitch.

Pattern for Annette’s Beanie!

Svenska här

Now we have winter in Sweden and the last days have been really cold, like -20 degrees Celcius (-4 degrees Farenheight) so it is really time for warm and cozy hats and beanies.

The other day I saw this really cute hat at All About Ami’s blog, and I loved it!

And since I hade the perfect yarn just lying around I decided to give it a try! But I soon realised I didn’t really care for the visible join in the back, and I wasn’t too fond of the edging either.

So I tried to make my own version and was so happy with the result I had to share the pattern with you!
