2 weeks agoby conceptcreativeI bought this mohair yarn because of its vivid color, but it was difficult to find the right stitch pattern for it - mohair is notorious for its poor stitch definition because the hairs obscure the appearance of the stitches. It usually looks good in plain stitches, but they are just ... not catchy. I had to undo a lot of rows while trying to achieve a more dynamic look, finally I have opted for constantly repeated WAVY rows. . . This yarn is notoriously troublesome when ripping back, so I've used a long tapestry needle for untangling my stitches.
6 days agoby conceptcreativeSo, I'm back from my 3-weeks holiday, full of energy and excitement to start the usual working routine . I have not crocheted much on holiday - whenever we were not visiting monuments or museums we rented bikes and rode along the shore. The 4 pine cones are to remember 4 wonderful cities (and to add to my growing collection of other cones that I bring from every journey:)). This is what I have managed to crochet during last 3 weeks :). Do you think it will look best as a bag or a cushion cover?
3 weeks agoby conceptcreativeIt's being such a wonderful year with so many new friends and amazing places! And if 2019 was somewhat rough for you I hope that everything will be better in the years to come! Happy New Year!
20 hours agoby conceptcreativeYou asked whether I crochet dresses with bigger hooks. Yes, sometimes For this crochet dress I have used DK-weight cotton and 4 mm hook (hook G in the USA) and next hook size for the foundation chains. . . Links to all crochet patterns are in my bio (as usually ). Have a great crocheting weekend!
