R23-R24, HDC in each st around

R25, Count your stitches, divide by 4.

For example, the blue bag I have 55 stitches at R24, as 55 can’t be divided by 4, I add a stitch and make it 56 = divided by 4 is 14.
For the color bag, I had 45 stitches, I removed a stitch at R24 to make it 44 =  divided by 4 is 11.
For the bakers twine bag I had 40 stitches = divided by 4 is 10.

For the handles I add half of a quarter of the stitches  to the handle Chain.

HDC in next 14 st, CH21, skip 14st, HDC in next 14st, CH21, skip 14st, SLST to first HDC.
HDC in next 11st, CH16, skips 11st, HDC in next 11st, CH16, skip 11st, SLST to first HDC
HDC in next 10st, CH15, skip 10st, HDC in next 10st, CH15, skip 10st, SLST to first HDC

R26, SC in next 14st, 21SC around chain, SC in next 14 st, 21SC around chain
R27, SC in next 14st, 21SC around chain, SC in next 14 st, 21SC around chain, join with invisible join.

April Square is here!! Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 by Pukado

OMG, it's already the last day of March! Time flies, crazy!!

So a quick post as I'm busy with the prep work for my little girl's 6th (!!!!) birthday party this weekend.

Lots of baking, cooking and cleaning and no time for crocheting (hahaha as if...) and other stuff!

So I already had the square done 2 weeks ago, but haven't gotten around to write it down and take pictures.

The pattern will be available on Ravelry as well, so please add it to your favorites and queues!!
I made a special one for my girl's birthday, you can't see the glitter and sparkle really in the picture, but it's there!!

Jasmine Top by Pukado - Crochet pattern Jasmine Stitch

My girl is turning 6 soon and I wanted to make something for her. I have never really made clothes before, except the chevron skirt I made last summer. She still loves it and is waiting impatiently for summer to wear it again.

I fell in love with the Jasmine stitch or daisy stitch. But for clothing I think puff stitches are not the smartest way to go, especially not kids clothing. So I made a variation on the stitch and I was blown away!! I love how the top turned out and I'm very happy!! So is my girl!!

You can buy the pattern in my shops:

Tulips from Amsterdam - New Pattern!


I haven't posted in a while.. the winter blues had hit me hard and basically I couldn't find any energy to do whatsoever! Except crochet that is... always have energy for crochet.

I have so many ideas running around in my head, I just couldn't make a choice what to make and create. I was focussing on my Mood Blanket for a while and then it hit me. I must make it spring time!!! This will get my energy up! (oh and vitamin D! Helped a lot!)

What better way to say spring than some lovely tulips! Real ones die on me too quickly, so I crocheted myself  a lovely bunch of tulips! It gave me blue fingers, but they are so pretty!!! I'm so happy with them!

And then I thought, wouldn't it be supercute to have a pillow with lovely flowers on them. So I experimented with some stitches and tadaaaaa a lovely row of flowers appeared. I made the first one with Stylecraft DK and the second one with Phildar Phil Coton no 3.

It works up pretty quick and I can see lovely blankets, pillows and bags made with these. Not to forget lovely happy dishcloths and pot holders for in the kitchen!!!

And I had to make a hat off course. A summer hat! (I'm so done with hats at the moment, I can't even get a normal slouch hat finished!!!)

These are extra bonus patterns you get for free with the Tulips pattern.
With patterns for working in a row, working in the round and the hat!

And I leave you with the famous Dutch song: Tulpen uit Amsterdam:

Crochet Your Mood Blanket 2014 - March Square - Free pattern

Yes, it's time again for a new Square for March!

I was pondering what to do for this square. In the meanwhile I was working on a few other projects, My Watermelophant, a new spring flower project and my Color Explosion Ottoman.

I was watching the kids play and their inflatable ottomans were just bugging me. I don't like stuff with popular characters on it. I think it's ugggggly. But the kids like it and I can't stop other people from giving it to them. So I told Aoibhinn I will make a pretty rainbow cover. She wasn't to sure. But as soon as I finished it, she loved it! Now I have to make another one for the boy. Because he likes the lovely colours as well! And I have a few more requests, but I have to figure out supplies and price first before I can commit to orders.

I love it. It lights up the room by just sitting there!!!

But we're here for the March Square and it's a beauty!!
