Havtorn Sweater

Just finished this one… I am so happy with it! And love the yarn & the color I used!

Yarn: Hobbii Diablo Multi, Yellow Reef 💛
Knitting needle: 8 mm

The photos are taken by my husband and design by me.

Will be looking for test knitters soon.

Working on knitting designs

Unfortunately I am working on 2 kitting designs at the same time!!! I get distracted and shiny yarn shows up and I can’t help myself!!! I probably need therapy! 😅

So far, so good… playing with this pattern idea, Hobbii Diablo Multi & knitting needle 8 mm.
Maybe I need to change the pattern on the yoke, need to play some more with that… 🤔
I really need to stop getting distracted by a shiny new idea!!!

The other idea…

The other knitting idea has been waiting my attention… but as I ran out of Diablo yarn and had some other ideas come up, I guess I just need to continue working on this one. 😆
I do love the yarn I am working with, Hobbii Metallico & knitting needle 5.5 mm.

Oak Of Life

I just finished the Oak Of Life shawl by @me.and.my.yarn free pattern on her website.

I have been home with influenza and I just had to feel like I was getting something done. So happy with the result, my second time making a shawl. 😁
The shawl is not washed nor have I done the blocking, yet… but it looks great!!!

For the project I used:
Hobbii Metallico Rosaline (05) using 4 skeins of the main color.
Hobbii Metallico Rose Gold (18) using 1.5 skeins of the second color.

I am a tight crocheter (amigurumi damage). I made the puff sts with 4 yo not 3 yo, as the designer shows in the video tutorial (but I did do 3 yo on the first, edge puff sts).

Christmas Elf Hat

I made these for my boys (not using a pattern) and they were very happy.

Using up almost 1 skein of Scheepjes Colour Crafter in the Red & in the Green.
Also using, for both hats, one skein Scheepjes Panda for the brim and pom poms, and using approximately 90-100 meters of the white Scheepjes Colour Crafter along with the Scheepjes Panda.

This is how I made the hats:
Using 5,5 mm hook and Scheepjes Colour Crafter using the Camel stitch (Half Double Crochet in the 3rd loop, stitch).


MR, 8 hdc in the mr (8)
crochet 4 rows hdc in third loop (8)
*hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (12)
crochet 4 rows hdc in third loop (12)
*2 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (16)
crochet 4 rows hdc in third loop (16)
*3 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (20)
crochet 4 rows hdc in third loop (20)
*4 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (24)
crochet 4 rows hdc in third loop (24)
*5 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (28)
crochet 4 rows hdc in third loop (28)
*6 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (32)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (32)
*7 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (36)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (36)
*8 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (40)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (40)
*9 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (44)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (44)
*10 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (48)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (48)
*11 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (52)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (52)
*12 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (56)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (56)
*13 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (60)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (60)
*14 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (64)
crochet 3 rows hdc in third loop (64)
*15 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (68)
crochet 8 rows hdc in third loop (68)
*16 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (72)
crochet 8 rows hdc in third loop (72)
*17 hdc in third loop, inc* rep rnd (76)
crochet 10 rows hdc in third loop (76) <- size for my 14 year old and my (big headed) 9 year old.

Try the hat on as you crochet and just keep adding stitches to find the size needed.
Depending on the size, the 8 rows and 10 rows are part of the last parts of the hat, to fit the head and not be to snug.

Brim:

Using 5,5 mm hook and 2 threads, white color, Scheepjes Panda & Scheepjes Colour Crafter.

Join the yarn around the back post of a stitch and chain 8.
Work the brim in the opposite direction from previous work.
Sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and sc in the next 6. (7)

  1. Sl st around the back post of the next 2 stitches on the hat and turn. Do not work into the sl sts. 
  2. Sc in the BLO, across (7). Ch 1 and turn. 
  3. Sc back down (7). 

Repeat from 1-3 until the brim is complete, turn the hat inside out and slip stitch through both sts to close the gap.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Pom poms:

Using 2 threads, white color, Scheepjes Panda & Scheepjes Colour Crafter to make the pom poms.
