Virkade en till Trondheimsjal åt en väninna i ett annat garn och så här blev den 🙂 Continue reading “Trondheim no 2!”
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!”
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…
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!
Sorry I haven’t posted for so long but I have been busy crocheting! I will participate in one of the christmas fairs in my town, Sigtuna Julmarknad . So if you by any chance are in Sweden and Stockholm the first sunday in December, come and see me!
One of my products is this lovely cowl that I have named after my beautiful daughter Lena. It is a quick and easy project, perfect as a christmas present! And my early christmas present to you is a free pattern!
I don’t know if you use these cork trivets from IKEA? In Sweden you will find them in almost every household. IKEA has sold them for ages, they are handy and durable, and they have always been really cheap you can replace them when they get dirty.
Downside is they aren’t that stylish… Lately I’ve been seeing crochetet covers for these trivets on Pinterest and I decided to make one that matches my Mandala Style Placemats.
A trivet with a cover would make a very nice gift or christmas present and since the trivets are 3,99 $ for three (and probably just as cheap in all countries that have IKEA), this project doesn’t ruin you. So here is the pattern!
I wanted some new place mats for my kitchentable and searched the internet for a pattern but I couldn’t find one I liked. But in the search I stumbled upon this pattern, Little Spring Mandala, and fell in love!
I decided to try go grow it into place mats and I have to say I am really pleased with the result, being the first time I try to grow a pattern. So I desided to share the pattern with you guys!
It has been a long time since I wrote something for my blog, life has been busy 🙂 But there has been time for crochet and I recently posted a pic on Facebook of this skull bag I made for my daughter.
There were quite a few requests for the pattern so I thought I would try to describe how I made it.
