Crochet Tiara pattern

Today I will share the pattern for this adorable crochet tiara!

Specially for Samantha! :) 

So to  make it you will need super fine yarn and crochet hook # B/2.25
Originally my idea was to make two crowns, one in blue and one in pink, for newborn twins. 
I couldn't find any super fine yarn in blue, so I decided to try embroidery floss and I really like how it turned out! 

sc-single crochet
sl-slip stitch


Chain 72, join carefully not to twist. 

Row1: ch1, sc in every stitch till the end of the row, join with a sl st.

Row2: ch1, sc in the first st, ch5, skip 4 sts, 1sc in the next(5th) st-repeat till the end of the row.

Row3: {3sc, ch3 and sl st in the 3rd ch from the hook to form a picot, 3sc} repeat this into each ch5 space till the end. 

Fasten off and you are done! 

Easy, right? 

After finishing this tiara, I put it on a jar, making sure it fits snugly, and sprayed it with fabric stiffener.

I hope my instructions make sense:) 

Please feel free to post your creations  on my FB page!

As always,

Phone sweater pattern

One of my New Years Resolutions was to post at least once a week. It is only the second week of the year but I am already behind. I just feel that there are not enough minutes in an hour, not enough seconds in a minute. There are so much that needs to be done and so much to be said. Well, I think I just need to learn to focus on thing at a time!  

Today I want to share a pattern- a sweater for a cell phone. :) 

I know it is silly, but it is cold out and everyone needs to feel warm and loved, even the phone!

To make one you will need:

Scraps of worsted weight yarn
Knitting needles #3
Crochet hook # F/3.75
Any embellishment you like (or not, it is up to you)

I will be using these abbreviations:

K- knit
OY- yarn over 
Sc- single crochet


With #3 needles cast on 24 stitches.
Row 1: Knit 1, Purl 2- repeat till the end.(24 stitches)
Row 2-8: Knit all knit stitches and purl all purl stitches.
Row 9: K2, YO, K2, YO, K3, YO, K2, YO, K6, YO, K2, YO, K3, YO, K2, YO, K2 (32 stitches).
Row 10: Purl all stitches.
Row 11: K3, YO, K2, YO, K5, YO, K2, YO, K8, YO, K2, YO, K5, YO, K2, YO, K3 (40 stitches).
Row 12: Purl all stitches.
Row 13: K4, YO, K2, YO, K7, YO, K2, YO, K10, YO, K2, YO, K7, YO, K2, YO, K4 (48 stitches).
Row 13: Purl all stitches.
Row 14: K5, YO, K2, YO, K9, YO, K2, YO, K12, YO, K2, YO, K9, YO, K2, YO, K5 (56 stitches).
Row 15: Purl all stitches.
Row 16: Bind off all stitches.But Do not cut the yarn off. The first part of the project is done:
Now you will need to rearrange you finished piece, so you can visualize the "sleeves" and the main part of the sweater. I am using stitch markers just to show where these parts are.

Now take the hook,and starting from the middle(it is going to be in the front of your piece) single crochet all around it, joining two it together. 

In next and every single row after that, sc in every stitch, working in the back loops only.

But you can choose any pattern you want, play with it!:)

Here is my finished sweater:
And this is the back view:
I added a heart button on top of crocheted heart. I used  this great tutorial to make one! 

It is very simple but what a fun project to do! 

I would love to see your creations! 

Please feel free to post them on my facebook page! 

Happy Crafting, everyone! :)
