The Scaapi square!

IMG_3925

 

Beautiful February! You bring so many joyful moments! I named this blanket “The Moya blanket”. This yarn is just amazing to work with. For details about the yarn and where to buy, just visit the lovely Michelle over at Scaapi! She distribute some amazing yarns,  and both  the Moya and Vinnis are on my favorite list!

My last post  “The Scaapi cowl” had a small bonus.. You can make it into a square! I love a pattern that you can use for several purposes. And if you want to decorate your table with some amazing coasters. Just make the single motifs.

This is perfect for warm spring days or chilly summer evenings. And you have the rainbow to choose from colorwise. I love yellow. It`s something about that color that makes my heart skip a beat. For me, yellow represent happiness and warmth. And it was perfect in this blanket.

Scaapi cowl!

Scaapi cowl

Scaapi cowl

Beautiful May! I was so lucky to recieve a box of possibilities from the lovely Michelle over at Scaapi. And there was some gorgeous South African yarn from Vinnis colours, called Bambi. A cotton-bamboo blend! So super soft! and the colors reminded me of a beautiful spring day. I was so inspired by the softness in this yarn,  and the Scaapi Cowl was created. Perfect for spring days and chilly summer evenings. With a few changes, you can easy make a gorgeous shawl or scarf. For the shawl, just rearrange the motifs as a triangle. I will post the drawing for the joining in the bottom. And the hand written diagram for the motifs.

The pattern is written in U.S. terms and I used a 4 mm hook.

This is the child size of the cowl. You will need 8 big motifs and 4 small (2 tall, 4 wide).  For the lager cowl, you will need 15 big motifs and 10 small  (3 tall, 5 wide).

A small tip is to finish round 1-6 on all your big motifs. Use the Pic 1 to see how to join the motifs as you go. You can also sew the motifs together in the picots, if you find the joining difficult.

Mom`s square!

Moms square

Happy December!

Been a while since my last post (and pattern) but been quite busy days. Hubby is at work, his trip home is delayed. But luckily we can pick him up on Saturday. Joy! Its the first Christmas eve we celebrate together in two years. And I really look forward to that. The best part about Christmas, is that we all can sit down and spend time togehter. Talk to old friends (and family) that has moved away and returns home to spend time with their family.

Will also write this post in Norwegian. Same text as here. Will also write the pattern up like i did the Joy coaster.I wanted to write up this pattern like this. Because when I startetd out crocheting, I searched online for tutorials like this. Its not always easy to know what to do if you don`t have anyone close to ask. and i remember how frustrated I got, when i got stuck. So I have tried to take lots of pictures. So its easier to compare with the piece in your hand!

The reason this square was made; a friend of mine asked if I could help her with a special gift for her mum. She had a small vision, but it didn`t work so well with the yarn we picked out. So I asked her if I could make something up. Lucily she said yes!

So this is dedicated to all the wonderful mums out there. My mum, my hubbys mum, my friends mum and you dear Laurie (You are such a star my friend!).

So I named it “Mom`s square”

Velkommen Desember!

Er en stund siden siste innlegg (og mønster), men har vært travle dager. Mannen min er på jobb og turen hjem er forsinket. Men heldigvis får vi hente han på lørdag. Gleder oss masse til det! Dette er to år siden sist vi feire julaften sammen. Så det ser jeg virkelig fram til. Noe av det beste med julen er at man kan sette seg ned sammen. Treffe familie og venner som man ikke ser så ofte. Bare det å få tid sammen, i en ellers så travel hverdag. 

Jeg valgte og lage en detaljert bilde beskrivelse av denne ruten. Når jeg først begynnte og hekle, lette jeg mye på nett etter slike beskrivelser. Og hvor frustrert jeg ble når jeg stod fast i et mønster med kun tekst. Så det er nok litt mye bilder. Men da er det litt lettere og sammenligne med ditt eget arbeid som du sitter med i hendene. 

Grunnen til at denne ruten ble til, var at en veninne spurte om jeg kunne hjelpe henne med og lage en spesiell gave til hennes mor. Hun hadde et spesiellt ønske, men det passet ikke så bra med det garnet hun hadde kjøpt. Så jeg spurte om jeg fikk lov til og prøve noe nytt! Heldigvis sa hun ja! 

Så denne er dedikert til alle mødre der ute! Min mor, svigermor, Elin og Laurie .

Derfor kalte jeg den “Mors rute”!

I used Drops Safran and a 3 mm hook. The colors I used was 01, 18, 26, 50, 52 For every round. Cut and fasten yarn.

Jeg har brukt Drops Safran og en 3mm heklenål. Fargene: 01,18, 26, 50 og 52. For hver runde. Klipp og fest garnet.

Make a loop on your last stitch. Pull out hook and insert the hook trough the third ch in your first dc (its just the first one that can be tricky. Its easier with the next ones!)

Lag en løkke i den siste staven (så rakner det ikke så lett når du skal lage masken). Ta ut nåla og stikk den gjennom den 3. lm i den første staven (det er den første masken som kan være litt vrien, det blir enklere når du skal til på de neste).

Insert you hook trough the loop and tigthen (so you dont get a wobbely pop corn).

Stikk nåla inn i løkken og stram den (slik du får den fast og fin).

For the next round you need to flip the circle. So you will hold you work the “wrong side up” this round. In any ch space, fasten yarn with a ss and ch 1. Make one sc.

I den neste runden må du snu sirkelen. Du skal hekle videre fra baksiden. Fest garnet i hvilket som helst lm mellomrom og lag en lm. Lag deretter en fm. 

FullSizeRender (37)

Looks lot like the 4dcc right? But you need 5 dc (without pulling trough the last time). You should have 6 loops on your hook.

Ser veldig likt ut som den 4stg du lagde tidligere ikke sant? Eneste er at du må ha 5 staver (uten at den siste runden er trukket igjennom). Tilsammen skal du ha 6 løkker på nåla.

The Viola mandala!

violamandela

Updated 27.01.15 []   A big thank you to Karen (@handmadequince) that told me that the pattern needed a small change! Im truly grateful that you took your time to so!❤

Hi! New week and lots of possibilities ahead! Finally finished the mandala pattern.  The yarn i have used for this one, is Mandarin Petit from Sandnes Garn. The colors I have used is 6705, 5212, 1001 and 6803. I used a 2,5 mm hook. You will need one skein of each color. You can also use Drops Safran from Garnstudio, but use a 3mm hook.

It`s written in US terms and this is the abbreviations I have used

Ch- chain

ss- slip stitch

sc- single crochet

hdc- half double crochet

hdc v-stitch (hdcv) – half double crochet v stitch (hdc, chain 1, hdc) 

3dc cluster- 3 double crochet cluster

3tr cluster- 3 treble crochet cluster

Puff stitch 

In each round you start with a 3 dc cluster or a 3 treble cluster. Chain 2 for the 3dc (counts as the first dc) and chain 3 for the 3tr (counts as first treble).

Change color after each round. But a small tip. Weave the ends in as you go. So you dont have so many to fasten in the end. And you will need to block it a bit. But hey. Its cotton. Just use the iron. :))

Pattern:

1. Ch 6 and form to a ring with a ss.

2. Ch 1, 13 sc into the ring, fasten with a ss in the first sc.

Dc 4 more. You will now have 5 dc in your sc.

Hekle 4 staver til. Du skal nå ha 5 staver i den første fm.

In next sc, dc 5 and repeat as hown above.  Make 7 more bubbles. 8 bubbles in total.

I neste fm, lag 5 staver og gjenta som over . Du må lage 7 bobler til. ( 8 totalt) .

Make a ss between the bubbles (same color) and ch 2

Lag en kjmsk (samme farge) mellom boblene og lag 2 lm

Voila! The Sass square

You will probarbly need to block the square, I just use needles and a  coaster ( in cork).🙂

Du må nok blokke ruten litt. Jeg bruker og legge den på et gryteunderlag i kork (korketavle funker fint!) og strammer den opp med nåler.🙂

2: Hekle 50 fastmasker rundt strikken, fest med en kjedemaske i den første fastmasken. Lag så 2 luftmasker

3: Hekle 1 halvstav i hver fastmaske (50 halvstaver). Fest med en kjedemaske i den første halvstaven.

4: Gjenta runde tre.

Nå skal man begynne på ørene. Ikke klipp tråden.🙂

5: 1 halvstav, en stav i samme maske som halvstaven, 3  doble staver i neste maske, i neste maske 1 stav og en halvstav.

IMG_8070

Skal se slik ut.🙂
