Crochet doily rug pattern

crochet doily rug

Still on the run, searching for free patterns made with Zpagetti t-shirt yarn, which you can buy here, I stumbled upon this great doily rug pattern. This pattern is from Creative Jewish Mom

Actually you can use every doily pattern you can find and when you make it with Zpagetti t-shirt yarn, it will become a rug, because you’ll use bulky yarn and a thick crochet needle.

Zpagetti t-shirt yarn is a very strong an sustainable product!

Very Easy Infinity Scarf Pattern

DSC_0606 sjaal beige los 2

It’s getting colder and because this is an old post of mine and so many people like it I had to put it on top again.

To make this cowl I used two skeins Ribbon Xl from Hoooked, which you can buy here. I love the ribbon XL because it’s made from recycled cotton and because it’s cotton it doesn’t itch and is not to warm, but feel free to use any other kind of material that matches knitting needles size 17

 Cast on 40 stitches en work in garter stitch, the width of the work has to measure aprox 16 inches. Than work in garter stitch till the work measures aprox 36 inches and cast of the stitches.

Half way there

20130810-131020.jpg
A few weeks ago, I started with this crochet umbrella, now I’m half way there. I did about 45 rows and there are 20 more to come, but because the rows are getting longer and longer I’m half way there! There will come two more roses in each part. One rose and a butterfly are already finished.When I finish the umbrella, I will make the pattern available for those who like to crochet. The finished umbrella will be for sale in my Etsy shop.

The making of……. an umbrella

foto-15A view months ago I started this project, but I made a mistake in the beginning and ended up with 7 part but every umbrella has 8 parts. I have been looking on the internet for an umbrella with 7 parts but I gave up. It took me some time to get over it but, last week I started over and this is a picture from the work in progress. I think it will take me a couple of weeks to finish it and when it’s finished, I will publish the pattern and the umbrella, which is great for a wedding, will be for sale:)
