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!

Standing Single Crochet Tutorial!

Svenska här

To get your work neat standing stitches are a great help. They eliminate the need for starting chains when changing colour and makes the changes almost invisible, especially when crocheting in rounds. You won’t be able to tell were a round starts.

Here is a pic of a square were I didn’t use the standing stitches tequnique. It is really obvious were my rounds start, see? The work is a bit crocked and knobbly and doesn’t look professional. Yes, I regret being lazy with this square 🙂

So I thought I would show you how to make standing stitches. In this post we cover standing single crochets. A post for standing double crochets is coming up right after this one. If you know standing double crochet you will be able to make standing triple crochet and so on.

Owl key holder!

Svenska här

I loose my keys all the time. So when I still had yarn left over after making my Sunburstbag and my toiletrybag I decided to use it to make a fairly large key holder to help prevent my keys from running away.

I had seen such a qute owl made for a baby decoration by Svarta Huset. I made just the owl skipping some rounds to make it a bit smaller.

Owls and balls decoration for baby carriage by Svarta Huset!

I wanted an owl for a project and found some really qute ones in this post, by very talented swedish blogger Annika hwo runs the blog Svarta Huset.

I wanted to share my project with you and asked her if I she would allow me to translate the pattern for the owl. She agreed. lucky for us!

The owl I made comes from a beautiful decoration for baby carriages. After some thought I realised I have to translate the whole decoration by Svarta Huset or you would miss out!

I will show you my project in a separate post.

I cannot stress enough, the pattern below is not by me, it is by Annika at Svarta Huset! I merely have translated it to english, using her original pictures. All credit for the beautiful design belongs to Annika!

Toiletry bag inspired by Bautawitch to go with my new bag!

Svenska här

I crochetet this bag a while ago. It is designed by a swedish designer called Bautawitch.

I did a post on it here but never translated it to english because there is no pattern for the bag in english.

I really love my bag but it lacks comparments for your odds and ends. So I decided to try making a small bag for this purpose from the left over yarn.
