crochet projects: 2 done and 2 in the works


hello, good to see you!


lilac cowl

a small and fun project and easy to make (to my opinion).

i used one ball of 100 gram saskia yarn with hook size 4.5 mm and worked a little loosely.

for a basic ‘how to make’ you can use this explanation for the curly bracelet. for this lilac cowl i made 151 chains per curl and made all single crochets.

cat bed

for the cat of my cousin who loves to sleep on soft and crochet things, i made a cat bed that measures about 50 x 50 cm and about 10 cm high. it is a little wobbly and feels really soft and comfortable (inside a children’s comforter which is easily washable) so i hope the cat will love to relax on it.


cushion cover

both sides of the cushion cover made of ‘another squares’ are done. all the squares are sewn together, i have crocheted one row around and fasten off the yarn …. and i think i measured something wrong because the sides are to small for the pillow, so i need to crochet more rows around them. no problem.

if you like, you can find the pattern for the squares here. the yarn i use is scheepjes ‘softfun’ and crochet hook size 4.00 mm.


some evenings were a little cold but for me those evenings were a good opportunity to work on my orange spider blanket.work in progress orange spider blanket by elisabeth andrée

  5. I have to add that, beside the blanket, I really love the pillow-to-be!!!!!! xxxxxx Ale

  6. I love your blog, Elizabeth – it’s so clean and calm. The orange spider blanket is my favorite of your projects this week. I’m not normally an orange gal, but your blanket looks so scrumptious – it makes me want to find some really great orange yarn and make something for my home with it. It looks perfect in that yellow basket. :^)

    • Hello Becki,

      The orange is a yellow kind of orange, it is Stylecraft Special DK and the name is Saffron.
