Basket Weave Scarf - Crochet Project




Hello Readers,

I am back from a short Maternity break! Yes we welcomed little boy in our family in MAY 2013. 

I am so glad to have completed this project, so now my Father-in-law can wear it everyday for his morning walks!
I love basket weave, but knitting it takes a long time. So I was browsing some easy patterns in crochet which won't go wrong. I found this beautiful picture tutorial on Pinterest.

I used Acrylic Panda Yarn about 200gms and used 3.5mm Crochet hook


Do share your winter crafts!

Crochet Baby Change Bag


Crocheted Baby Change Bag - Pictorial Given Below


Dear Readers,

I am very excited to share my  First Crochet Pattern YAAAY!!!
I adapted this pattern from a knitting pattern seen in Natural Knits for Babies and toddlers book by Tina Barrett.
 
This handy changing bag also doubles up as a changing mat. It is ideal for storing all the essential equipment and has useful front pocket too.



Knitted Baby Change Bag - Inspiration

I have tried to capture every step in pictures below, hope it makes sense to all you readers. I have also written some basic crochet pattern below. (Click to continue..for pictorial instructions..... long post)


Newborn Baby Crochet Set

 Hello Readers,

The great response received for the baby turban inspired me to make a complete set for our new member. So I was back to my pinterest Crochet board to find more patterns.
I love this baby cardigan pattern from  Yarny Days Blog as I wanted to learn the knack of making a continuous one piece sweater. The pattern was easy to follow, but I had to amend it as  I was using very light weight yarn and also wanted ribbed pattern to match with the turban.
Materials used:
  • Light weight acrylic multi coloured yarn.
  • 3.5mm Crochet Hook
Changes made to the original Pattern:
Started with 48 chains instead of 38.
The circumference of the cardigan measured 28 inches before beginning the pattern
I alternated between front loop and back loop for each row to get the ribbed pattern.
Used same colour yarn for the edging
space out the three buttons to close the cardigan completely
Baby Booties: I wanted to try this Baby Booties pattern for so long. Finally got a perfect reason to make these.
Again I made some changes to the pattern. I used 3.5mm hook for the sole and then 4mm hook for the side and top of the booties.
They seemed to be too small for newborn when I made using only 3.5mm hook as suggested in the pattern.
This was very quick project took me only 10 hours to complete the set. I hope it fits the new born perfectly.
Have you created something from Pinterest recently?

100th Post !!Crochet Turban for newborn baby




Hello Friends!!

Meet our little Sardar Teddy Singh! We are celebrating our 100th Post today!!





 I made this cute turban crochet for our new member who will be arriving soon in to our world. I used the pattern from pinterest pin. 


I just got this idea of adding some pearls where the four ribs are clutched together. Its very quick and easy pattern to follow. It took me only 2.5 hours from start to finish for this project. 


 I used baby yarn of 4ply instead of worsted, but crocheted it bit loose, so it matches the gauge required for the project .


Thank you for all your ongoing support and following...... 

Happy Crocheting

Crochet Bulky Skullcap



Sharing some more Pinterest inspired projects...

 I made this skullcap with folded flap for myself.... I loved this pattern  and was perfect for using all the bulky yarn. 

This pattern required 1.5 skein of yarn. So I had to use another colour for the flap. Coincidentally now it matches with my neck warmer project.

 Hello Readers!!

I have recently completed 2-3 crochet project which are quick and easy to make. I have selected few of my favourite pinterest pins and made these projects.

So while exploring one of my pin I stumbled on to this design and I have even tried to match the wool colour too.


Materials: 1 Skein of Bulky Yarn , 8mm crochet hook, tapestry needle, 2 wooden buttons.

Stitches: V stitch pattern is used to make this cowl.

Crochet Mobile Cover


Hello Readers!!

My mum recently crocheted this cute little mobile cover from some spare wool. I liked the bead combination she has used for the flap opening. She created it on her own without any pattern to follow, but she depends on her memory a lot...so no written pattern for the blog :(

Happy Crafting!!
