New crochet pattern – Open Spaces coat

The Open Spaces coat is the perfect mix of style and comfort, when you want to be nice and cozy in the winter. Crocheted with Super bulky yarn, it is amazingly quick to crochet with all these “open spaces” (chains are soooo much faster to make than full stitches). The hood is totally optional, so […]

Starting something completely new (to me)… Crocheted socks ! Socks… I tried to knit them ages ago. Then tried to crochet them. But that never worked out, too fiddly to knit, too thick and not enough comfortable when crocheted… I could not picture socks crocheted in single crochet, even elongated sc… Yet I still kept […]

Tired of winter ? My new hooded “Boréal coat” – named after its pretty Noro colors reminiscent of northern lights – is sure to light up any bleak snowy day, and bring a smile to anyone you meet. As usual it’s crocheted in one piece from the top of the hood down. A textured edging gives it […]

Nothing beats bright colors to get through the winter… At the beginning, there was this superb yarn in yummy shades of blue and green, and my brand new Jimbo’s hook I HAD to try since it promised to be amazing (which it totally is). A tiny swatch proved those 2 were made to work together […]
