Dear Crochet Maniacs it's me again! The crazy one looking for autumn in the end of August! :)
I couldn't resist to post this lovely pumpkin beanie FREE crochet pattern, which just became the number one in the list of the next to do projects.
Easy to make, with detailed step by step instructions will be perfect also for beginner Maniacs.

Am I the only one looking forward to the fall arrival?
I've always been a total supporter of the summer days, the walks with the evening breeze, exploring the coast surrounded by nature,... However, I have to admit that the more the years pass the more I like and enjoy also the rest of the seasons... and fall is surely one of them!
You probably just came back to the daily routine, like me, or you are maybe one of the lucky ones who still is enjoying the holidays. So I found myself these days looking for new crochet ideas and projects, already starting to think about Christmas presents (hehe I am a bit crazy, I know), and I found this lovely free pattern, designed by Michele Wilcox and published by www.redheart.com
Starting to work to winter projects can be still complicated, especially if you live like me in a warm Country... so why don't we start with a lovely free crochet pattern in cotton? An easy jet truly beautiful wreath that you can hang to a window to enjoy it from the inside of your home, or you can use it to add a touch of autumn to your front door.
Follow the link below and... Have a lovely day crocheting!
But let me get back on track hehe. You will fall in love with this backpack, one thing I wanted to try is also to adapt it maybe using cotton yarn or even better old t-shirts, what do you think? Feel free always to share with us your doubts, thoughts and why not, show us your work!
Happy day crocheting!
Dear crochet maniacs,
today's project has something really special, I can say I have the honor to publish one of my mother projects.
You have to know that my passion from crochet comes from my mother, she is the best crochetter I know and since I have memory she made beatiful projects come true one after the other. She really is an artist, the one that can crochet, knit, make dolls, design clothes and even paint! I know you will think that it's my mother and it's kind of normal that I KNOW she is the best one (hehe) but seriously, I can probably make a blog only with her projects and going on for a looooooot of time.
She lives in Italy and some months ago she sent me a beautiful dress that came together with matching crochet earrings done by herself.
The result with the pearls it's really elegant and perfect for these late summer evenings.
Good morning lovely crochet maniacs.

Today's project is all about the Carnival, and don't worry, it's super fast to make so you plenty of time to finish it before this amazing festive season is over.
It's a simple video tutorial which also has written instructions for a basic beanie if you feel lost with it. Very well explained and easy to follow.
They could then carry the mask, thankful to find a measure of equality lost in the course of time later, when under borrowed clothes; the noblemen still fraternized with the people.
In return for political inaction, the people became attached to this glorious pomp which characterized memorial holidays of Venice, when conflicts between the big families were forgotten; in hunt of bulls and of course the festivals of the carnival, which served for showing all seductions of wealth, all fads of fashion.
Venice carnival masks for all! During the holidays, and especially carnival, ardor and joy burst with life, harmony of colors, pomp and emulation of luxury.
To avoid public resentment, a law forbade the rich men Venetian to wear their jewelry publicly, except during official holidays and during the last carnival days! Carnival allowed them to finally satisfy all their affectations.
In the middle of active, mobile, cheerful multitude, among the flickering torches and the noise of the trumpets, circulated masks of a thousand disguises in fancy scintillating dresses of gold and gems, and matrons in precious dresses with trains so immense they were carried by maidservants.
In the middle of this mélange, the people were rather good and peaceful. Seldom did the huge crowd have any brawls or menacing gestures. There was no need for police officers or security forces: the throngs passed peaceful and merry across calli, like a true family celebration.
Now let's get started and Happy Day Crocheting! :)
Written pattern but very well explained to make this lovely crochet hat with a 1920's feeling.
Today’s project is a nice and very well explained video by Esperanza y Ana Celia Rosas, from Peru. A really nice super easy and super fast DYI project, just as we love it!
It’s a perfect crochet hat for wintertime which completes the gloves from the other day click here! :) Plumb braids and crab edges which comes in ALL SIZES!
The video is in Spanish however, I’m pretty sure you’ll realize you won’t even need the audio to go on fast with it. Still, to help you a bit here you can check out some important points translated, especially in terms of sizes, which goes from a newborn up to adult!
You will need…
3mm crochet hook
Yarn: recommended for a 4mm
45g // newborn
60g // 3-6 months
80g // 6 months - 2 years
100-300g // kid
160g // adult
Start your project with…
46 chains // newborn
56 chains // 3-6 months
64 chains // 6 months - 2 years
72-76 chains // kid
84 chains // adult
Then the work goes on with the same system for all sizes so you can just continue the rows as you worked the first ones.
When it comes the part of the reduction to close the top of our almost finished project take into account that the first 3 rows are actually the same in every size. However, if you are working on a newborn size you have to stop the standard reduction at raw 3; for an adult size, you’ll have to continue it until raw 7!
….plus 2 last raws in the end, again common in all sizes.
Christmas is gone... but winter we can say that basically just started!!! So well... if you like this season but especially if you don't (like me hehe) this post may be just the right one for you!
I was looking for an easy tutorial for beginners for making a nice pair of gloves, which just need the use of the crochet and yarn... and here I found it!
It has written instruction plus photographic steps... and the possibility to download and keep the pdf with a small "donation" on the page.
It comes in adult and child sized to make sure everyone is happy! :) Enjoy!
This video will show you how to crochet a puff stitch flower and hook them together. It requires just basic crochet knowledge and it can be used for embellishments, blankets and much more!
After reading many posts about recycling broken flip-flop shoes I finally found the perfect project. Not only because of the design, which is really bohemian and detailed; as well because it is really well explained, step by step and with videos which will help the maniac crochetters with less experience with written patterns.
Whether you're looking to save money on your own accessories or you want a custom gift for a friend, crocheting a hat from scratch can be a great project. If you're new to the art of crocheting, making a whole hat may seem intimidating. However, with some simple directions and a bit of time, you'll get the hang of it in no time.
R7: (sc 1, dec 1) rep ( ) 6 times= 12 sts
R8: Sc 12
R9: (Dec 1) rep ( ) 6 times= 6 sts. Ss in the first st of this row. Fasten off.
The result is a little ball which can be shaped as a petal. Each flower is made of 4 petals, leave a long strand for sewing in one of them. Weave in all ends in the rest.
Take the petal with the long strand and make a few sts right in the tip of last row. Then take another petal and sew it together with the last one. Repeat for the following two petals. Finally, join the 4th petal with the first to close in the round and shape the flower. Fasten off. If you plan joining to another work leave a long strand. You can use this kind of flower for a necklace, a bracelet or any kind of garment.
sc: single crochet (UK double crochet)
ss: slip stitch
