Chunky crochet – my Fluffy Puffy Pillow. 

So I ended up making a new design last night: my Fluffy Puffy Pillow. 

After craving and searching for that perfect chunky pillowcase for such a long time I finally caved and decided to make my own. And oh, I couldn’t possibly be any happier with the result. It shurely lives up to its name being all super duper fluffy puffy, and in the creamiest of white wool. I absolutely adore it! 

Now I need to make a few more in grey, beige, pale blue, and maybe some soft shaded pink.. 🤤

Every summer needs a boho-bag…

..and this year I’m crocheting one. 

I’ve had the same thing the last couple of years. As soon as it starts to feel a tiny bit like summer – I go all in for the romantic boho-look. Floral prints, long flowing dresses and fringes. I feel totally free, happy and easygoing. It might be a kind of rebellion against my corporal persona (which I also love) as my day to day job is in the science of public health. No matter the reason, it just happens. 😇 


I have this little gorgeous white creamy dreamy crocheted bag I got many many many years ago, I might actually have been 13, from my aunt and it’s still going strong. But after becoming a mother I find it to be just a little too small for all those essentials. Other than my phone and lipgloss I now also carries pacifiers, napkins, sunscreens, a toy or two and so on.. There is definitely room for adding an extra love to my bag collection. I just like that I found this simple yet gorgeous pattern on Pinterest for the Urban Gypsy Boho Bag by Make & do create. Fringes, grannysquares and cluster stitches – what’s not to love?! 

For my version I’m using my trusty 4,00 mm from Tulip Etimo and Drops Muskat yarn in the three shades; Light pink (06), White (18) and Light beige (61). 


Isn’t it just the perfect shade of dusty pink?!


To be continued! 😄

A chunky baby blanket 

Sorry for being a bit absent lately but this pregnancy is kicking my but right now. However, I do get some crocheting done! 

Take a look at this baby blanket I just finished trying out for Grandmaskills (whom you can find on Instagram). It’s so easy, quick and with a gorgeous texture that you can look at for days. It’s definitely my new go to when it comes to baby gifts. 


As I worked with Drops Andnes, which consists of 65% wool and 35% alpaca, it snugged a bit and became smaller than the gauge but I really don’t mind. It ended up being approximately 60*75cm which works perfect for a stroller or a cradle. 

What do you think? Isn’t it a beauty?!
