Morning lovelies!

I finished my blue shawl last week. It was a lovely shawl, easy pattern to follow and a wonderful yarn to crochet with…

Some infos about this shawl

♥ Yarn: Debbie bliss baby cachmerino blue (About 9 x 50g with the fringes )

♥ Hook: 3.5 mm

♥ Pattern: The pattern is by mypicot.com You can find it if you google: mypicot 10007 shawl. I followed the exact chart but did not crochet the fringes on the sides. Instead I crocheted 5ch 😉

7

The first bedspread I am crocheting for my girls room is mostly done too. I still have 18 squares to add and an edging of course :) I am totally completely in love with it ♥

8

and I am already planning the second one :) Grannies… yes… my eternal love ♥

*The yarn I am using for both bedspread is Stylecraft special DK and Stylecraft life DK*

9

And I am also knitting. I want to finish my “trendy chale” before the cold. I love the color sooo much. It is the burnt orange of the Debbie bliss cashmerino aran and the needles 8mm :) The “trendy chale” is a triangular very simple shawl and you increase just one stitch in each row. I love the simplicity of the design and the warm and snuggly look of the final shawl ♥

And I am still into knitted beanies. I am loving the chunky look of them knitted with chunky yarn. Here I am using the drops andes yarn ♥

That’s all my friends! All about my actual creative projects ♥

Stay safe, take care of yourself and see you very soon 😉

Much love,

Sucrette

The simple knitted beanie ♥

By |November 6th, 2015|"done", free patterns, knitted beanies, knitting|15 Comments

Good morning my lovely friends!

I learned to knit many years ago. I was around 11 years old. We were stuck in shelters during the civil war and my mother to distract us taught us how to crochet and to knit. I did not really liked it then. I prefered to play outside. But after many long years I felt in love with crochet again and now, three months ago with knitting ♥ It is my new addiction and I love to mix between crochet and knitting.

1

I learned lately with some youtube videos about simple knitting projects and tried out the simple beanie one and you can guess by seeing all these pics that I loved it. It is a french video and I can’t seem to remember the source :( I am very sorry. But I will try in this post to explain it to you a little bit. So simple you will be amazed by the result once done.

2

It is really easy to do. No increases and decreases :) And after many trials I came out with the perfect number of stitches to begin with for every age of my children 😉

3

You have to knit a simple rectangle with straight sides. You can begin with a few rows of k2 p2 rib like I just did and continue with one knit row one purl row until you reach the high you want.

Once the high you desire is reached. You stop. Leave a tail of about 40cm long and cut your yarn. Then you put a needle to your remaining yarn tail and pass the needle and yarn through every stitch of your last row. And pull. Pull very tight. And sew your knitted piece with the remaining yarn and your needle. And tadaaaa your beanie is done ♥

4

I knitted these beanies you see in the above pics with an aran yarn (Debbie bliss cashmerino aran) and 5mm needles.

For my oldest daughter (10years old) I began with 76 stitches

For my 8 years old daughter : 72 stitches

And for my boy (3 years old): 64 stitches

And yesterday I tried to knit with a very chunky yarn and 10 mm needles and I loved it ♥

5

I started with 44 stitches and it was perfect for my 10 years daughter.

6

I love how fast I finished it (2 hours) and the result. So cosy and cute.

7

I am planning now to make some beanies with chunky yarn. Soooo easy and fast and I looooove the result ♥

8

That is all till now about my knitted beanie’s journey ♥

I hope that this post will give you the “push” you need to start knitting or come back to knitting or even knit more :)

 It is very easy. Very soothing. Very relaxing. You will enjoy it for sure and enjoy the results too!

Happy day to all!

Autumn love ♥

Hello!

October is here. Autumn is here. I love autumn. I love the colors, the “normal routine” in our life, the back to school and the mummy free time I have back in October :) It is a lovely month not too cold not too hot in my part of the world. The light is beautiful. The perfect weather for crocheting and knitting too. I am working on 5 different wips and I am loving it :) Yes, maybe it is too much but I love it. I don’t ever get bored of a project.

In crochet, I am actually joining the last squares of this beautiful blanket ♥

1

I wanted it to be a bedspread for one of the girls bed but I changed my mind when I tried it on the bed…

I changed my ming and decided to give it as a wedding gift…

and start a new bedspread for the girls…

2

a classic kind of colorful squares joined as I go with a last round of 1sc 3ch 1sc all around the square and in the 4 corners…

3

I love the simplicity of this design and find it better for a bedspread. What do you think?

4

I love how colorful it is and how simple too ♥

And how about knitting? Knitting is now my new addiction and I am totally hooked… I loooooove it…

5

and I can’t stop making colorful beanies for everybody :)

6

I started also a “trendy chale” inspired by my IG French ladies. It is a triangular very simple shawl very cosy and warm. And the soothing effect of knitting this simple stitch and increasing one stitch in every row is wonderful. My favorite project for the evenings…

7

It is growing very fast and the color is a deep orange very automnal. It is really beautiful but I can’t seem to catch it correctly in these pics. The yarn is lima drops and I love it♥

I still have my light blue shawl that I did not show you in this post . I will show it to you next time. It is very slowly growing. I really wish I had 48 hours a day :)

Wishing you a beautiful thursday!

Sending you love and hugs
