work in progress: stacking baskets

The new pattern is almost here! I am quite proud of this one. It’s more like a three-in-one instructional booklet than a written pattern. It contains twenty pages filled with crochet basics needed to complete the project as well as many useful tips, photo tutorials, and illustrations to make three stacking baskets. They are both functional and beautiful, crocheted in a unique combination of jute and cotton. They look so great in my son’s bedroom, and I have a set in my office – they are perfect for storing things big and small!
Look for the pattern in my store.

crochet pattern: picture frame with fan edge

Crocheted picture frame with a fan edge – now available for download in my Etsy shop.Crochet Picture Frame Pattern by JaKiGu
I designed and wrote this frame pattern in the spring. I crocheted more than forty of them in this lovely lilac purple for the custom order I was working on at the time.

I love purple, I love lilac, and I love spring.

But recently, a different season and different colours have been on my mind. Christmas with its trademark pine green, cardinal red, and golden yellow, and of course, the classic candy cane red and cream white.

I crocheted a couple fan-edged frames in the red and white combination, inserted zen snowflake art, hung them on the wall, and it immediately felt like the air was a little crisper, and the mood was a little more magical. I swear I can almost hear the jingle bells.

Whatever colour you decide to crochet these frames in, my pattern is super easy to follow and even a beginner crocheter can finish a frame well in under an hour. In addition to the pattern itself and useful, close-up images, the downloadable PDF comes with stitch knowledge base, and tips on finishing, blocking, stiffening, and cleaning crochet frames. Each purchase also comes with a bonus PDF with several ideas on how to finish the back of the frame to hold miniature art securely in place. And while you’re there, see what else is available at JaKiGu on Etsy!
