Lacy Scarf with Puff Stitches Crochet Video Tutorial

I find something really comforting in crocheting puff stitches! 

I've made quite a bunch of scarves with lace and puff stitch designs recently, and now I've made just one more! 

The pattern for this scarf has only two repeating rows! The pattern can be easily adjusted to many other crochet projects! 

I'm thinking of trying this pattern using crochet cotton thread size 10, and perhaps making a lacy table runner. 

The yarn that I used for this scarf is Soft Yarn by Red Heart, and the hook is size I (5.5 mm). 

My video tutorial is available on Youtube! 

And the written pattern is available in my Etsy shop

Easy Crochet Vest with Big Collar, Crochet Video Tutorial

Hello, hello crocheting friends! 

Are you ready for fall? I certainly am! 

Not only I made myself a comfy and cozy popcorns sweater (see my previous post here), but also a nice and stylish vest with a big collar! 

The pattern is very easy! And the construction of this piece is a simple tube with holes for arms! That's it! 

What plays a big role here is the yarn! We need a very stretchy and soft texture for this vest to fit nicely! But not every yarn will create such texture! 

The yarn that I used is Unforgettable by Red Heart! 

This vest can be made in any size! 

I created a detailed vide tutorial, and the written pattern is available in my Etsy shop

Happy October and Happy Crocheting!

Oversized Crochet Popcorn Sweater for Chilly Autumn Days

Hello Crocheting Friends! 

Autumn finally arrived to Northern California! And it was quite sudden! The temperature dropped from 90s to 70s! 

But that's ok! I'm ready for fall!

I crocheted myself several garments to keep me warm and cozy during chilly days! 

And one of them is this chunky, oversized crochet sweater with popcorns! 

Crocheting popcorns is so much! Yes, they are yarn-eaters, but they create such lovely texture and look! 

At first, I intended to make this sweater as something to wear around the house on cold autumn and winter days. But I really like the way it turned out! 

With jeans and boots, this is a quite decent outfit for running errands as well! 

I created a detailed video tutorial on how to crochet this sweater! 

And also the written patten is available in my Etsy shop

Happy crocheting and happy fall!

Crochet Women's Beanie Hat to Match the Cardigan, Free Crochet Video Tutorial

I really liked working with this stitch when I made my cocoon cardigan

So I didn't stop there, and made a matching hat too! 

I used the same yarn - Impeccable by Loops & Threads, and the same size hook - H (5 mm). 

Only about 150 yards of yarn are needed to make this hat! 

I filmed a detailed video tutorial on how to make this hat! 

And the written pattern is available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops. 


Happy Crocheting Friends!
