Granny Stripes Kimono Cardigan CAL

 

Granny stripes kimono cardigan was inspired by the month of August! Traditionally we spend the first two weeks of August on a camping by the sea with family and friends. Sun, sea, fresh fruits, seafood, barefoot kids(and adults),  nights sky full of stars and all this shared with best friends…The feeling of freedom and love is everywhere!

What makes the Granny Stripes Kimono Cardigan so great for my vacation is that I can throw it on over most anything – a pair of shorts or my favourite jeans or leggings, over a dress or simply as beach cover up. I also designed it with the idea to wear on early Fall layered with long sleeves shirt.

 

The yarn I used is The Cotton by We Are Knitters. As you remember I’ve used this incredibly soft yarn for some of my favourite designs as Lace up Granny stripes sweater, Granny stripes sweater, Pearl shell top, Silver drop sweater. You can check all the colours here

Granny Stripes Kimono Cardigan is coming in size S/M and L/XL but could be easy customised. There are so many possibilities to add your personal signature to this project! Use your imagination and play with different colours,  make a long sleeve kimono cardigan or a duster.  I can’t wait to see your finished projects!

Flower dew shawl CAL

Welcome to Flower Dew Shawl CAL! Join us on Ana D crochet patterns Group to celebrate Spring making this beautiful shawl together with our talented crochet community!

Lightweight shawls are always good idea no matter the season.  Spring inspired me to design a shawl that shows the beauty of crochet and look contemporary, something elegant and feminine that women of every age will enjoy. And of course it’s always more fun to crochet in a good company. That’s the story behind Flower Dew Shawl CAL!

Flower dew shawl is with slightly asymmetrical triangular shape. It’s fun play of lace section and simple double crochet section which will show beautifully when worn. The asymmetrical shape makes it look elegant and modern.
It can be worn in a multitude of ways. Wrap it around your neck as scarf, wear it like a cowl or bandanna, or just throw it over one shoulder to give a pop of colour. To make the Flower dew shawl you’ll need approximately 470 yards (430 m) of  Fingering  yarn with nice drape and crochet hook size 3.5 mm (E). Pattern is for intermediate level of crochet skills.

Nordic snowflake hat CAL

In this period of the year everyone needs a hat! A cozy hat! I’m very happy to invite you to join Nordic snowflake hat Crochet-A-Long (CAL) at Ana D crochet group!!!
Nordic snowflake hat is a beautiful winter crochet pattern with fair isle nordic design that is very common to knitting.  And as you see this is possible to be done in crochet too using a simple variation of single crochet stitch.  It’s fun to make because of the knit look texture and the color changing. Pompom also add a pinch of playfulness. Just use your imagination and play with colors. The hat is designed with Cat 6:Super bulky yarn and it can be done in 2 hours.  That makes it perfect Christmas gift!
