Shawl – Full written pattern

Autumn is knocking on the door again. So I made for you a pattern for very nice shawl, which will come handy. It is crocheted from connected squares, so you can adjust the size according to your needs.

This time I used ALIZE angora gold simli” - color number 4760. I liked the silver effect of this yarn. You can get this yarn all over the world. But this shawl can be made from any yarn or cotton of your choice. Multi-colored or single colored it will still look great.

There are many pictures to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern for this shawl. I have added charts as well. It may even be helpful with learning to read the charts.
I’m also confident the written pattern is suitable for a dedicated beginner as well.

I am providing the pattern for this Shawl for symbolic price only, and you can find it here:

Recycled denim bags

As you might know already I really love to make bags and purses. I’m experimenting with combining crocheting and sewing to make some of my bags. You can see these in my earlier posts.
The past few weeks I was working on my first fully sewn bags. I used my favorite material-denim. To be more specific recycled denim, which I’m getting in my favorite charity store. The varieties are endless and it keeps the cost of material reasonably down.
As I mentioned before I only have minimal sewing skills and I –with some (big) help from Google –managed it.
The star shoulder bag you can see right below is measuring: cca 44cm x 37cm(17,6” x 14,8”), handles 50cm(20”).

The fold over bag you can see right below is measuring: cca 35cm x 45cm(14” x 18”), handles 50cm(20”).

I hope you like the bags as much as I do. I would like you to take this post as an encouragement to all of you, who are not professional tailors, and would like to try to sew something for yourself. It can be done with a little bit of dedication. 

Have a nice week
