crochet snowflake 2019: free crochet pattern

It’s December and that means it’s time for Crochet Snowflake 2019.

Like every year, I am eager to welcome winter. The start of every season brings a tingle of excitement and December is no different. The cool, shorter, darker days that replace the bright weeks of autumn mean only one thing: the nature is getting ready to rest, and so should we. Though it may seem hard to do, having wrapped up one holiday only to start getting ready for another, but December is the perfect month to slow down and enjoy the small things.

crochet rainbow wall hanging pop up shop

I’ve been wanting to publish a pattern for a simple crochet rainbow wall hanging since I first wrote about macrachet last winter. Back then, I almost absent-mindedly crocheted a simple rainbow, more to illustrate the concept than to create something particular. The rainbow came together so quickly and effortlessly I didn’t bother taking any process notes. After all, it’s a rainbow. An arc. A half-circle. Who needs to take notes on that? Plus, I thought to myself, if it turns out well, I will surely write and publish the pattern within a few days. There’s no way I’ll forget between now and then.

Being able to start and finish a task in a single day feels sinfully luxurious. Which is perfect! I have a bounty of jute crochet patterns coming your way this fall. Just have a look.

work in progress: black and white crochet

jakigu.com | black and white crochet motifs

Last Friday night, I grabbed my hook to quickly whip up a test black and white crochet spiral for a collaboration project I am considering. While I was working on the swirl, another black and white circle idea popped up in my mind. So, I made it – and while doing so, like bubbles, another two ideas popped up in my head. By Sunday night I had 16 different black and white motifs. And then I noticed I had been storing all these circles in a black and white polka dot basket. Clearly, there’s a theme going on; wouldn’t you say? Continue reading “work in progress: black and white crochet”
