crochet projects: 5 done and 3 in the works


welcome and thanks for stopping by!

below may be an overload of photos, but i hope you like to take a look 🙂

do you remember this picture of my post of the 6th of may?

side tables and inspiration board elisabeth andrée

a small and simple sidetable that i found in my mother’s house and this is how it looks with it’s new cover.

the yarn is softfun of scheepjes. on the floor you see a vase which was also my mother’s and although i think it is very ugly i know my mother has it for years and years, so i took it home with me. 

for an empty glass jar i made a ‘dress’ in the same style as the (super)market bags i have made lately. to make the rope i crochet foundation half double crochets and attached it to the cover with two large keyrings. with some led lights in it, the shadows look wonderful in the evening. used yarn is a combination of catania and phil coton 3.

for no reason i tried a vintage pattern. it is a large motif of the irish crochet doily number 7635 which you can find here

used yarn is phil coton 3.

just because i love this yarn – which is better for knitting – but it is so beautiful and it is the best yellow i have seen for a while. two balls of katia creta, crochet hook size 5.00 mm and very loosely made double crochets, some slip stitches along the short sides and four wooden buttons. voila, a simple and super soft cowl for my sister in law.

finished too is my lilac shawl, more photos and notes how i crocheted it you can find here. the bright green bag is made with the same stitch pattern (years ago) and it has a complete other character because off the yarn and color.

….. and these rectangular grannies.

for quite some time i was looking for a pattern and although there are many great patterns available, when i saw the diagram i thought yes, that is the rectangle i like to crochet. the pattern is written but it also has great diagrams. a small adjustment, i make 2 chain spaces in the corners instead of 1 chain spaces. i don’t like to squeeze 6 stitches in such a small space. direct link to the pdf is here.


last but not least, 42 ‘another squares’ are all blocked and ready to be sewed together. pattern for the squares here.

will be continued….

well that is all i have to show you today. if you have time, leave a small note with what you think is your favorite project.

have a wonderful day, rest of the week and until next time!
