"Beauty of handmade lies in their imperfections, anything perfect is machine-made"
I don't post often my own projects, original ones usually are so perfect that I almost fell guilty posting my results instead of what the owner of the project does.
But this time I am so happy with the result, I really proudly feel it's time to stop being shy.
Let me introduce you to my lovely, new born in times of lockdown, wall mandala:
A lovely 60 cm diameter hula hoop + t-shirt cotton yarn = total cost less than 5 eur and such a lovely result. Fast and easy, I followed the instructions and pattern of this Serenity Mandala Wall Hanging Crochet Pattern by Kristin Omdahl and it went on really fast!
You want an easy project, that gives fast results and will look perfect in your home? This is definitely the one for you!
Have a lovely day crocheting.
Why am I saying this? haha to justify me looking already for Easter crochet free patterns, so yeah, here I am!
This is for sure one of the cutest bunny hats I saw one the internet lately, the ears hanging like this makes it just too cute to be true.
Clicking on the button below you can find the free step by step pattern easily and beautifully explained by Jess from Make & Do Crew.
And please, feel free to share with us your Crochet Bunny Hat in the comments below!
Have a lovely day crocheting.
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.
Just follow the link below and have a lovely day crocheting!
If you are looking for a simple "therapeutic" project to start the autumn with calm, this is the post for you!
It was like founding it and immediately falling in love with it; I already talked in previous posts on how crochet can help you relieve stress while, in the meantime, you also create something beautiful... and this project it's perfect with its simplicity, you basically have to repeat a lovely and easy crochet macaron stitch... until you reach the number of "yoyos" you need to complete the size you have in mind.
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!
This was just too cute to be true. I couldn't believe at my eyes when I saw it. haha I know it has been like a bunny attack lately and we are so sorry for it, but yeah, Easter and Spring... you know... the temptation is hard!

And again... One Dog Woof! I can't get bored of these wonderful free crochet projects. This time a really special one, for the beginner to take the next step and win the fear. :)
It's a simple project, don't get scared with it! As usual with this lovely page it comes with very well written instructions, easy to follow and with some helpful pictures clarifying the hardest points.
Impossible to skip it! Easter is just the perfect time to crochet a lovely bunny, don't you think?
What you will need:
- 1 ball: Lion Brand Homespun Thick and Quick (227g/8oz, 160yds/146m, 6 Super Bulky)
- small length of pink yarn
- 1 crochet hook 8.00mm
- 9mm safety eyes
- Clover Quick Locking Stitch Marker Set
- polyfill stuffing
- tapestry needle
Just a small last point: remember that, with this and all the crochet projects you decide to do, if you don't stick exactly on the suggested materials and you leave your immagination doing its work... you can have wonderful results!
Happy day crocheting!
If you liked my post about a super easy and nice DYI Crochet Hook Case well you'll simply love this video in which Donna Wolfe from Naztazia naztazia.com shows you how to make a crochet hook case holder using the wonderful written pattern by Mrs. Priscilla Hewitt from Priscilla's Crochet at: priscillascrochet.net
It's an upgraded project from the first one we posted, with more space for crochet hooks. No need to say that you can also do your own adapting it to your needs.
Happy crochetting dear Maniacs! :)
Written pattern but very well explained to make this lovely crochet hat with a 1920's feeling.
My dear Crochet Maniacs, maybe you didn't realise it yet but spring it's just around the corner yeyyyy! Well maybe not "around the corner" but for our best hobby it is, as it needs a bit of time and dedication we can already start with this nice and free crochet pattern to prepare maybe a nice gift for a newborn expected for next Easter.
It is a downloadable pdf with instructions in English or Italian, which will help you to follow this easy DYI project. You can vary obviously colours to adapt it as perfect gift for a little boy or girl.
So... what are you waiting for? :)
New year, new project! Another pick up from www.makeanddocrew.com, this lovely pattern for a DYI hooded blanket will quickly become the best project for you to start this new year full of surprises!
As usual with this page, it's very well explained, with step-by-step pictures plus some video content to help you, my beloved beginner crochet maniacs. :)
It comes with instructions for different sizes and as usual, you can use the combination of yarn colors you prefer.
Enjoy this free crochet pattern! ...but don't wait too much! Spring it's just around the corner!
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!
If you’re looking for a basket of specific dimensions or you just want another idea for a nice gift…. you found the right post!
Rectangular with rounded corners, this nice crochet basket is different from others as it’s made by rope crocheted together. This makes it quite more resistant so you can experiment with bigger sizes. It uses a technique similar to thrumming, were you crochet over another thread to add bulk to a fabric.
It can be thought as well as a special gift for a crocheting maniac, completing the pack filling it in with yarn, crochet hooks, books,….
You will need:
Adorable Turtle Amigurumi that can come out of its shell, or you can sew shell to body. The underside of the shell is a vest with buttons on it.
