This giveaway is all mine, and is not sponsored in anyway.
First off; thank you so much for all your encouraging words on our premiere episode of Sip Stitch. We had such a blast even though it started of totally crazy with me being totally side shown, some malfunctions and then the already epic imaginary hostage taking by @crochetingkay (!!!). We shared so many laughs, yarn talks and lots and lots of tea. Can’t wait for our next one.
Oh and if you missed it; you can very soon catch it on our YouTube-channel. I’ll post the link when it’s all up and in place.
But on toward todays sweet little upcoming pattern.
While I was sitting oh so comfortable in my chair working on yet another square (yes I’m totally hooked), my husband walks by carrying little baby Lo who in his turn is carrying his beloved wooden teether. He sees me and lights up with the biggest of smiles and….
..drops it hard on the floor. As it is one inherited from little E; it has for sure seen better days and must’ve dried up completely cause it snaps in two pieces and the four rings that was placed on it scatters all over the place. Such a mess.
So any non crafting person might probably just have tossed the old thing, but as for me I saw the opportunity to make new little teethers out of the four rings. And after falling madly in love with them myself I ran out to the studio to get a bigger sized as well and did a “winged” version too. Don’t know which size I like the best but Lo loves them all and that’s all that matters. He’s such a little crochet and yarn lover. The sweetest ever!
But yeah, that’s the background on how the LoLo Loop was born. It’s such a quick little make so I’ve already written up the pattern and sent it to my amazing testers! And one of them has already finished. That’s how quick it is.
And I can proudly say that I’ve made my first diagram/chart with Crochetcharts. It was a bit tricky but with a little practice it might just be my new best friend. Only time will tell.
So stay tuned cause the LoLo Loop Baby Teether is coming real soon.
✨💕☀️ Wish you a lovely weekend and lots of sun. ✨💕☀️
Hope you are doing well and have cozied up in the sofa with some lovely yarn. I’ve been having such a crojo lately and I’m so thrilled about it. And so I wish to share two new designs of mine: The Loopy Little Flower and The L.A. Sunshine.
The Loopy Little Flower was my first contribution to the lovely Instagram initiative #365daysofcrochetflowers by Emily from @theloopystitch and her new gathering account; @thecrochethookup. In short it’s about making a different flower for each and every day. Please place her a little visit and check out so many more lovely (and free!) flower patterns.
With it being simply 3 little lovely rounds it makes for a quick and fun introduction on how to create 3D flowers.

The L.A. Sunflower was my second contribution and this one is a bit trickier than my first but it’s well worth the effort. And a little spoiler: It will be turned into a bag (yes you read write), and I’m working on the pattern as we speak.

Both patterns are written in US terms but I’ve also included UK and SW-terms in the abbreviations.
You may also find them on my Ravelry page if you wish to bookmark them and save for later.
I hope you’ll have fun.
This is the written pattern for the overlay mini mystery CAL I hosted on my Instagram between the 19-21/3, 2018, named after my two brightest little stars; Evy and Lo.
With this CAL I aimed to make overlay crochet a little bit more approachable (not as scary) in hopes that more would like to try this amazing technique.
So for three days in March hooks were on fire and it all ended up to being Sea Star Coasters. This pattern can of course be used for so many other things. Joined together you can make buntings, pillows, a baby blanket perhaps? A little wall hanging? Only your imagination sets the limits. And the amount of yarn you have…
Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced crocheter; I hope you’ll like it and have a good time.

Lots of love,
When I first heard that my sister it was expecting it was a complete surprise. Especially since we just had let everyone know that we ourselves were expecting too. What are the odds?! But the months passed by so very quickly and in the beginning of November I got to meet my first little niece: Emilia. She is just as tiny, sweet and amazing as she possible could be.
So being a creator; my mind went straight on thinking about all the things I wanted to make for little Emilia. But her mother, whom I love very much, doesn’t really share “my passion for homemade things” as she puts it. So therefore it was a bit tricky to sneak a project or two pass her well kept guard but then I came up with the idea of a modern, stylish, and nothing even close to being sugary sweet, chunky baby blanket. It’s completely done in the gorgeous moss stitch and I named it after my beloved little niece of course.
I really hope you’ll like it and want to give it a go. It’s such a quick and rewarding project that can easily be done in a day. I believe this version took me approximately 3 hours. If you want it bigger or smaller it’s easily done!
So with no further ado – let me present: The Emilia Blanket.
PS. Do note that the pattern has not been tested yet so if you find any errors or have any questions please let me know.
..is such an amazing feeling.
I actually started this pillow as a CAL last year. And yes, it was my first attempt to follow a pattern. I had only started crocheting a few weeks before that so you can definitely say I like a challenge. Hihi.
Well I came a long way but somewhere around the popcorns I just suddenly stopped. I have been trying to remember why but somehow it got placed upon a shelf and has been resting there until this very week when I saw that funny hashtag frogorfinishline. So I decided to pick it up again and actually finish it. And I did: yeay!!
This pillow is an absolute stunner and I love it so much. It’s never to late, not even for the most longgoing wips.
The pattern (which you can find here) was made by the talented yarn magician Mijocrochet as a free CAL for Favoritgarner. We used a gorgeous cotton yarn from Scheepjes called Catona that are available in over 100 different shades. And oh it has the most incredible shine to it. Please check it out!
Back to the pillow process. 😉
I learned so much and met many amazing creators by doing this CAL. And yes.. There will actually be another In Bloom-pillow in the making as I’m doing one for my mother. Lets hope it doesn’t take me half a year to finish this time. 🙊
Wish you all a great weekend!
..and just have to wing it to make it work.
This was my morning today. As I woke up the sky was grey and the rain was falling down. A perfect day for some fall inspired crochet you might think. But no, I totally got a picture stuck in my head of a flower-balloon-with-a-basket-kind of thing. Lol! Have no idea where it came from or how it will eventually end up.
Started with the flower and now I’ll try to make it up as I go, a top down approach. Exiting? Or just crazy.. We’ll see! 😅
Yarn: Scheepjes Catona.
Crochet hook: Clover amour 3,5 mm.
Flower pattern: Make my day creative.
Leaf pattern: My own improvisation.
..with the repeats. It’s gonna be so gorgeous!
The yarn, Drops Muskat, works absolutely perfect for this pattern and I couldn’t be happier with it.
Have a lovely creative Sunday cuties!
You just got to love popping those gorgeous stitches. This pattern is by the fantastic creator @crochetbyaredgrape. She does the most amazingly colorful things and this pillow is certainly no exception! It’s so much fun and very easygoing. I’ll keep you updated on the progress! 😉
Pattern: find it here!
Yarn: 7 shades of Drops Muskat (100% cotton).
Hook: Tulip Etimo Rose (4,0 mm).
..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! 😄
