Even though I design all my crochet items with functionality in mind and use vast majority of them daily in our home, every now and then I make something just for me. It may or may not be practical or needed, but it makes my heart smile.
Usually, these items are the easiest to create. Perhaps it’s because there’s no second-guessing myself when I crochet something just for me. I know what I want, and I know how to create it – or I keep on trying until I get it right. Without the need to take meticulous notes, the process is quick and almost effortless, and thoroughly enjoyable.
So, allow me to share with you a few projects I completed over the last three months. They were all designed with one customer in mind. Me.Continue reading “crochet: just for me”

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.Continue reading “crochet snowflake 2019: free crochet pattern”
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.Continue reading “crochet rainbow wall hanging pop up shop”

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.
