Yarn painting

Have you ever painted with yarns? Have you already tried tapestry crochet technique?

Basically you crochet with two or more colors of yarn traveling the other color always along "inside" the stitches. Tapestry crochet allows you to create a piece of crochet that plays with color changes and flat patterns.

Add crochet edging around just about any paper image and create a frame. Add it to a Christmas card and make your holiday mail more personal. Punch a hole at the top and tie some yarn. Use it as a gift tag or book marker.

An old idea back to life, vellum paper and crochet, sweetheart-ed ornament or decoration…..

When I started designing this blanket I didn’t have a clear idea of what I was going to do. This design simply unfolded as I worked.

I just wanted something different and elegant. What do you think?

Christmas Medallions Pattern

I love Christmas trees, Christmas lights and Christmas ornaments more than any other part of any other holiday.
My ornament collection keeps growing every year! I am so excited to add these sweet crocheted medallions to my Christmas ball and vintage snowflake granny.

Elegant in spirit, these pretty little medallions look wonderful on my tree and also on spare winter branch.

Pretty ornaments made with your own two hands seem to me to embody the very spirit of Christmas!
It will only take 10 minutes of your day. What do you say?

1st Round: start with a magic ring and work (1dc, ch1) 12 times inside the ring; (12dc and ch1-spaces)
2nd Round:  in every ch1-space work dc3tog [Yarn over, insert hook in same stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 3 times, ch3,  fasten off (12 dc3tog and 12 ch3-spaces)
3rd Round (new color): in every ch3-space work 4dc, fasten off (48dc)
I made a hook by crocheting 12 chains.

Zig-zags of dark and light grey together with the white run through this classic ripple afghan. It is  going to look stylish in modern home. I crocheted it with 3mm hook and used 700gr of cotton yarn. Measures 80x120cm. 

I loved crocheting this pattern, it’s relatively simple, rhythmic and soothing. The written pattern is available HERE, and for the graphic pattern see the photo bellow.

With white yarn Ch 6, sl st to the first ch to make a ring.
Ch 5, count as tr+2ch, *1tr, 2ch* 7 times, sl st to 3rd chain of beginning chain 5, in total 8tr
Sl st inti the first ch2 space. Ch3+3tr cluster into the same ch2 space, ch5, *4tr cluster into the next ch2 space, ch5. Repeat * 7 times. Sl st into the top of the first 3tr cluster. Fasten off.
Join red color into top of any tr cluster, ch 1, doesn’t count as a stitch.  *1dc into the same space, ch2, 1tr into the tr of the first round, ch2, repeat *7 times. Sl st into the ch1 of the beginning of the round.
Sl st into the ch2 space. 1dc into the same space, ch 3, dc into the next ch2 space, ch3 around, in total 16 dc and 16 ch3 spaces.
Sl st into the ch3 space. Ch 3, count as tr, work another tr, ch 2 and 2tr, all in the same space. You made a corner. *Ch 2, dc in next 3ch space, ch3, dc in next ch3 space, ch 3, dc in next ch3 space,ch 2, 2tr+2ch+2tr in next ch3 space. Follow this* scheme round.

My big crochet Christmas project this year is red and white Christmas tree.

Red and white cotton yarn
3.0 mm crochet hook
darning needle
ch – chain
slst – slip stitch
hdc – half double crochet
I worked this pattern in rounds, using two separate half circles to cover the ball. The two pieces are then slip stitched together.
Ch4. Sl st into the first chain to form a ring. Ch 2, work 9 hdc into the ring (10 stitches in total). Join with a sl st to the 2nd chain.
Ch 2 (counts as stitch). Hdc 2 times into each stitch (20 stitches total). Join with a sl st to the 2nd chain.

Ch 2 (counts as stitch). *Hdc 2 times in the next stitch and hdc once into the next stitch. Repeat from * around (30 stitches total). Join with a slst to the 2nd chain.

Ch 2 (counts as stitch). Hdc once into every stitch (30 stitches total). Join with a slst to the 2nd chain.

Ch 2 (counts as stitch). *Hdc in the next two stitches and 2hdc once into the next stitch. Repeat from * around (40 stitches total). Join with a slst to the 2nd chain.

Ch 2 (counts as stitch). Hdc once into every stitch (40 stitches total). Join with a slst to the 2n chain.
Repeat rounds 1-8 for the second half of the ornament.

Place the crochet half circles on the ball and pull it down as far as it will go. Line your joining seams for both halves to make your ornament look best..Sl st into the (back) loops of every stitch around the ornament.

Decorate your Christmas tree!
