ROUND YOKE SHORT JACKET CROCHET PATTERN

A close-fitted classic with round yoke!
Originally I called this pattern Chanel-Style Jacket with round yoke, be-course of the short and shaped tailoring. Then I had an e-mail from the Chanel-Trademark-Patrol (Yes there is one!!), telling me this was absolutely not legal!!
So designers; Be aware of what you call your patterns! Stay away from famous brands as part of your pattern-name!
I’m very fascinated by round yokes, so finally I've made my own! 
I'm very happy with the final jacket!
Love how the round yoke turned out!
PATTERN HERE

Detail of back.


I love the colored dot-pattern on hem-line and sleeves!
Gives an extra touch to the simple shape.

Front-band with handmade buttons.

MY TOP 10 CROCHET PATTERNS FOR 2014

It's only a couple of days left of this year, so I did a little glance back on which of my patterns was the best selling. 


This is the result!



CROCHET-KNITTED RIBBED SOCKS

Normally I work any foot-wear, slippers as well as socks, from toe/up.
I wanted however to find out how close I could get to work a pair of crochet-socks in the same manner as the classic knitted ones; Top/down, with heel, gusset and all!
My conclusion is; It’s much easier and faster!
First of all you don’t have to fight with 5 needles! And the heel with gusset is also very neat and easy. PATTERN HERE
The ribbed crochet-stitch is the same as used for the Ribbed Pullover for Kids. See previous post


I'm really happy with these socks!
The cuff-ribbing that continue to the toe, creates a good fit and shape.

I've never worked a gusset into slippers or socks before,
but it's really quite painless!
Make a pair for HIM too!
Sise L is good for men-sizes!
And size S can be adjusted for kids!

The top shell-edging is optional, but a cute detail.

RIBBED CROCHET SWEATER/PULLOVER FOR THE KIDS!

I'm always searching for look-alike-knit-stitches in my crochet patterns. I love knitted ribbing, and have tried lots of VERTICAL methods in crochet to achieve the look!
There are very good horizontal (worked side-ways) crochet sts for ribbing, but not at all for vertical!

This little ribbed pullover is a neat substitute I think! Not as stretchy as knitted ribbing, but you can't have it all!
Find the Crochet Pattern HERE

Sizes: 
Small: 2-4 years 
Full chest width finished garment = 72 cm (28.3 in) 
Medium: 5-7 years 
Full chest width finished garment = 78 cm (30.7 in) 
Large: 8-10 years 
Full chest width finished garment = 82 cm (32.3 in)

Many possibilities for color-combinations with stripes,
but very pretty in one-color too!

I've designed hat and mittens for the sweater!
Not sure if, or when, I'm going to publish them!
Not special enough I think. Or may be they are?

The shape is very simple, with straight body and sleeves.

Vertical crochet-ribbing, created by *1 sc2tog, 1 ch*.
NOTE: Worked on the round only, and top/down!

LACEY WOOL WINTER CROCHET SLIPPERS

I wondered how it would be to crochet lace with chunky yarn and large hook, on slippers!
I think it looks very feminine and pretty! And warm!
PATTERN HERE!

On a small space like a toe-piece, it's limited how much lace to work!

With some simple stitches, it achieved a lacey enough look!

Edged with dc-Picots make a final lacey finish.

Yeahh! Super-comfy and warm!

And as usual; Protecting my home-shoes with Crochet-Soles!

This time I worked the soles with triple-stranded
scrap-yarn of different natural shades!

A little bit over-sized!
But I need to have space for socks in them!!


And with tailored, handmade and fabric-covered insoles!
So sturdy and warm!
Great gift-idea! Personalize the insoles with pretty labels!





GREY RIB CROCHET SOCK-SLIPPERS WITH PEBBLE-PATTERN

Light sock-slippers for chilly days!
The ribbed section make these slippers comfortable for any foot-shape.
Four flexible sizes. The S-Size can be adjusted for kids.
PATTERN HERE!
Sizes: 
Small = US 2 - 4 / EU 34-36 
Medium = US 5 - 6 / EU 37-38 
Large= US 7 - 8/ EU 39-40 
Extra Large = 9-10 / EU 41-42

Kind of Japanese-ish style for these slippers!
I think the small pebbles make these slippers special.

As usual, I've inserted my tailored, fabric-covered insoles!
Protects and shapes the slippers, in addition they keep me warm!

Inserting insoles to slippers, is a very good gift-idea!
Personalize them; Tag them with cute labels!


Yes! Lovely shape, nice and warm!

TRADITIONAL NORWEGIAN TALL SOCKS - IN CROCHET!

GET THE LOOK! CROCHET SOCKS, Inspired by the traditional, Norwegian stranded knitting-patterns. 
These are made to match my Norwegian Sweater, see it 2 posts ago, or click the link for pattern-info!
Being Norwegian, I've learned to appreciate these traditional patterns as part of my cultural inheritance. 
The patterns were knitted in the wool’s natural shades. Fancy color combinations, like my red and white socks, have been used only the last 5 decennial or so. 

Like to make a pair for yourself, or as a fab gift for the up-coming holidays?
HERE IS THE SOCK-PATTERN!


The socks came out real comfy and warm!
Very happy!!
Here my Norwegian Sweater is visible!
I could not make up my mind for red or white foot piece,
so I switched the colors on one of the socks!

Why not make two different pairs, and share an odd one with
your sis, or your mom, or best friend!

Cozy and pretty!

And practical for boots!
