Easter Eggs – Ready

Easter_Eggs

I love doing those projects that use those last bit of yarns. This time simply some pastel eggs using this straight forward pattern here. I used leftovers of  Rico Creative Cotton Aran from LoveKnitting.com. Kids had fun stuffing them. Also I found the way of closing the eggs really good, it was really neat.

Perfect Fit: DragonScales Mittens

Those mittens fit fabulously on the hands. The increase and decrease create perfect curves on the palm of the hands. The Crocodile stitches bring extra warmth and leave free the fingers for allowing touch screen. Those are now my favorites. They are called DragonScales Gloves. I wish I tried this Pattern from ZarrinHandMade at Love Knitting before Christmas… but there is still next year. Probably good to do as well with a shorter version on the wrist. I used the Quality Ideal from Bergere De France

Only done a photograph of the left mitten I am afraid. I will try to photograph the right one too.

Cedric the Dragon – Arimigumi

Et Voila! My 1st Arimigumi. It wasn’t easy especially because it was in black. The Dragon Pattern is from Katalin Galusz and can be found here at LoveKnitting.com. It is not as neat as seen on the pattern but really pleased with this 1st try. The head looks superbe with the green eyes.

Pokemon the return! Eevee Hat

It didn’t take long to receive another request for a Pokemon Hat. This time Eeeve was favorite. The pattern is on the Etsy.com web site and can be seen here. Done in 100% cotton with the quality Rico Creative Cotton – Aran from LoveKnitting.com. The colors used are: Clay & Nature.

This cotton is finer that the one used in the pattern but it was really easy to adjust. Simply adorable.

 

Pokemon attack! Mudkip Hat

We cannot escape the Pokemon invasion. And so to support our young Pokemon Trainer, I crocheted a Mudkip Hat. Mudkip is a Water Pokemon. The pattern used is from Ravelry.com provided by Monique Wiles, Pokemon Mudkip-Inspired Hat . I have used a finer cotton Rico Creative Cotton Aran from LoveKnitting.com. This cotton is a true pleasure to crochet. On my favoroute list now.

Colours used were: Sky Blue, Light Blue, Orange, White – I had some left overs for the black.

I adjusted the design. It is very easy to adjust a crocheted hat as long as the future owner is available for constant size check. And I doubled the top of the hat to help it to stand-up.

It also takes no time to be made, a couple of hours here and there and here we go. How nice to see the result quickly take shape.

Mermaid Blanket

First  Time I experiment the “Point de Crocodile” (top rows of the mermaid blanket) . It is easier that it seems and very rewarding. This blanket is 100% natural (50% cotton, 50% wool) done with the quality Rowan Summerspun, crochet 4mm from Love Knitting (quick delivery). There is a high number of Tutorial under you tube for learning how to make the “Point De Crocodile”. I used this one Point De Crocodile (it is in French).

It is simply called the crocodile stitch in English and Bonita Patterns has the most beautiful suggestions to interpret it (Patterns are in English, French and Spanish). The baby booties are next on my list: love them.
