Tiny Royal Baby Blanket





Few months ago, I was browsing Pinterest, and I came across this new crochet technique called the Element CAL. what does it mean? I didn't know then, but I liked it so much that I started crocheting immediately, following the tutorial videos by: itsallinanutshell.com, which I thank so much for the gorgeous Element CAL design and clear instructions. This technique needs concentration at first, nevertheless, with time your work will go smoothly.

I had a small bag full of cotton yarn (catania and alize), so I wanted to make a project inspired by the Element CAL pattern, and now I proudly present to you my 
Tiny Royal Baby Blanket.

Black Widow Scarf










I've always been fascinated by the spider web crochet patterns, looking for them, saving them, in order that one day I would have the time and suitable yarn to make a project using the pattern somehow.
I'm glad that the time has come! so here is my new black widow scarf. It took a long time to adjust the webs into the scarf, but the result was nice and worth the effort.
It's really easy to crochet; for there are only three stitches in the pattern: chain, single crochet and double crochet stitches. If worked properly, you will see that time will fly, and webs will be constructed faster than a spider's own work.
I hope you like it too, and make one of your own, not necessarily in black.

Santa Club Coaster





Even though Christmas is many months ahead, I realized in recent years that most of the crafters start the preparations early in July and August. I’ve been fascinated by the Christmas accessories since I was a teenager, but recently I began to come up with ideas for doilies, coasters, shawls and other things for Christmas. This year came up with this Santa Club Coaster. I hope you like it. It’s easy to make if you just follow the instructions carefully.

Fall is coming Shawl





I had so many ideas for this summer, I've even finished many projects i had put on hold, and now they only need to be written, and posted. But time says its word, and summer is almost leaving us. So when I received this alize burcum yarn, I envisioned this shawl immediately, and began working on it. It's easy to make once you know how to crochet the six petal flower, which by the way, is popular. I incorporated it in this triangle shawl in a way that makes it almost unnoticeable at first glance, then, after a few seconds, you see multi colored flowers in between the mono repetitive clusters pattern. It's fun. I hope you enjoy making this fall welcoming shawl!
