Crochet pattern project in work - it's a shrug!

Well, I never know, but I believe this one is a shrug, it's almost ready.
Yarn is bulky weight, so it's one week-end project to complete.
Soon in the shops.
I am also working on my new web-site, so I will be moving soon. The domain won't change and I will have a blog there as well. So everything stays and looks better.


I also have a warning for you! :))
Yesterday somebody decided to print my pattern - Motif Shrug / Cardigan:


She started to print it without looking in. The pattern is consisted out of 3 files - only main one is 50 pages and 160 images!
So, she told me, "I started to print, still printing... still... OMG!"
:))) well, she printed herself a book!
Please, be aware, I strive to give you as much instructions and step pictures as I can, so some of my patterns are really extensive... Check them out and print selectively if you need. :)

Thank you for purchasing my patterns!
Happy crocheting!

Sneak peek - new crochet pattern in work. Pretty stitch.

I like this pretty stitch - not motifs, though it looks like. It will most likely to be a pullover in all imaginable sizes - very easy to size. ;))
Happy crocheting, my friends!

Sneak peek on a new pattern to be added soon - Crochet Motifs Bag.

This bag was a puzzle to work on - to make all the motifs connected in a bag shape. There was a moment of giving up (for a half an hour:). I just finished it, all instructions are written, all charts are drawn. I have to get it all together in a file and check, check, check.
This bag was started as a hobo bag, but it didn't happen (sorry, Irina! :) I never know what it's going to be in the end and that's the beauty of creating. I redone the inner bag ??? like... 7 times? I am glad it's made out of worsted weight yarn, so it didn't take too long every time. :)))
The outer bag was adjusted just once. I made it round first, but it turned out too big, so I reshaped it to what you see.
There were 2 yarns used: worsted weight for the inner bag and fingering linen yarn for outer bag. All motifs (4 kinds) are connected as you go.
Follow me via E-mail (right upper corner) or keep an eye via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Etsy or Ravelry. The pattern will be available soon.
Happy crocheting, my friends!
