Another Patricia

Yay, spring is finally here! And I just finished knitting another Patricia shrug, this time for me, with the knit border in the beautiful deep red Illimani Santi. I like shrugs, they are so chic and easy to wear, and are perfect for the cool spring weather. The Patricia shrug has all the elements I love: leaf lace, bobbles, eyelets and texture ribbing. I especially love the pretty leaf pattern on the sleeves. What do you think?

10000 hearts

Today I have accumulated 10000 hearts at Ravelry for my design Jordan, since the 5000 hearts milestone on . This is one of my favourite designs, and I have crocheted another Jordan in early January (with Euroflax Sport to replaced the discontinued Allegoro). Each heart means an additional special encouragement to me as I continue to design.  Thank you so much to all of you for your kind support!

Reversible Hat – January 2018 Release

Sherry – reversible hat with floral pattern

Playful integration of daisy stitches and simple twisted ribs makes the Sherry hat a fun quick knit. Use different colors for Sherry and let the motifs translate to dainty blooms, carefree dandelions, spiky seedpods or tropical palm trees. You can easily turn the slouchy hat into a close fit beanie by knitting it shorter or simply wearing it folded for a pretty brim. The decorative backside also makes for a pert reversible hat. Knitted seamlessly in the round from the bottom up, the hat stretches to accommodate most adult heads.
