Lucky Monkey Purse

31.7.16
I've just finished working on my new crochet design - Lucky Monkey Purse.



My little daughter loves all sorts of bags and bag-packs. So I decided to top up her little collection with this fancy crochet purse in shape of monkey face. I'm so happy she loves it.







Yesterday we had a nice day out in local park and took some pictures of my little model with her new purse.





The purse is knitted with my favorite cotton yarn from Lana Grossa. I inserted a zipper on the top of the purse to keep all little things safe. The crochet pattern in format of photo-tutorial with step by step instructions is available from one of my pattern stores:

Dandelion Dream Romper

24.6.16
I don't knit a lot during summer days. It is so nice to spend time outdoor, take some walk and enjoy nature. However I've managed to finish my new knitted design recently - Dandelion Dream Romper. I made it for my little bundle of joy :). I'm so happy how it turned out. The romper is so comfy and stylish!




I used my favourite simple Dandelion fluff lace pattern together with textured pattern around chest. The romper is decorated with knitted bow and tiny pearl beads. It has I-cord ties on the top and fastening press studs between legs for easy nappy changing.








Dandelion Dream romper is knitted with DK weight cotton yarn from Rico in bright blue colour. The legs are knitted back and forth but the body of the romper is knitted in the round.

The knitting pattern for it is available from one of my pattern stores:

Sundae Bonnet

12.5.16
Please welcome my latest spring design - Sundae Bonnet. I knitted this super easy hat for cool spring and summer days for my little baby. She is modeling her new bonnet together with her lovely dad :)


I used my favorite DK weight cotton yarn from Rico Design in beautiful Magenta color.



This bonnet is quick and easy to knit and it is completely seamless. The front of the bonnet is knitted back and forth while the crown is knitted in the round. An attached I-cord ending along neck edge is made between two I-cord ties. 



The knitting pattern for it is available from one of my pattern stores:

Cross-Bow Vest

1.5.16
Today I would like to share my latest knitted design - Cross-Bow Vest. I have been thinking about this beautiful bow stitch for a couple of months. I wanted to knit something simple and stylish at the same time. I also wanted to keep the bow pattern through the whole garment. So I came up with an idea of t-shape vest with boat neck shape.



This vest is very easy to knit. Both parts front and back are knitted similar but it takes some time to make up each bow and fix their centers with couple of stitches. It requires a bit of time and patience but the result is worth it.




Also this vest is perfect garment for all seasons. It can be knitted with wool yarn and combined with long-sleeve top for cold autumn/winter days. Also it can be knitted with summer cotton yarn and be a perfect spring/summer top for any outfit.




The sleeves edge is decorated with I-cord which match the pattern and looks really beautiful on this vest. I used sport/5-ply weight merino wool for my vest.







I wrote a knitting pattern for my Cross-Bow Vest. It is very detailed and contains row-by-row instructions for all sizes and very detailed assembly process in pictures.

The knitting pattern can be downloaded from one of my pattern stores:
