Hello!

The title of that post could be the bedspread tadaaaa but I will not make a proper tadaaa post now. I will leave it for later.

The first bedspread is done. And it is beautiful. Really beautiful.

1

But it needs one more round to add to the edging. A round not in grey.

3

But I will not do it now. I need to finish the second bedspread (yes they are 2) and then make a proper edging for both and a proper tadaaa post for both too. Because they will live in the same room on twin beds ♥

2

I love the simplicity of this plain design. I love how the corners make shapes when joined together. I simply love it ♥

You can find a pattern for both the square and the joining method here.

4

Now I started the second one. Same design. Same colors. Same yarn (Stylecraft special dk and stylecraft life dk) and same love ♥

And I started a ripple blanket too ♥ I have a really really big stash of aran yarn and had some days ago a ripple envy ♥

5

A very big colorful ripple (one color by row) to keep me busy this coming winter. Want to join me? I will be hooking this blanket along with the second bedspread.

6

I will be using all the colors of my stash even the ones that I don’t really love. Not very sure about the result but a little voice in my head keeps saying yes to me.

7

And I must confess that even though I hold my breathe every time I add a new color, I am loving it more and more ♥

The pattern I am using is my loving ripples of happiness and you can find it here. So come on! join me! Let’s destash! Let’s create something beautiful from our leftovers. A rainbow of beautiful ripples ♥ Let’s hook together during the cold months this soothing colorful blanket 🙂 I will be really really happy if you join me!

8

And I am still knitting my second trendy chale. It made me very happy to see that some of you joined me in this knitting project. I love my first trendy chale* and wear it every day. Can’t wait to finish this second one too.

*All about my trendy chale in this post 😉

Have to leave you now…

Wishing you a really really lovely day ♥

Stay safe ♥

My trendy chale

By | December 2nd, 2015|"done", knitted shawl, knitting, trendy chale, Uncategorized|8 Comments

Hello there!

My trendy chale is done. What is it I hear you asking. Well it is a simple knitted triangular shawl that I felt in love with in my french IG feeds. It is very trendy in France and I keep seing new ones, colorful ones and it is very inspiring ♥

So, I made my own ♥

1

It is very easy to knit. You just knit knit and knit. You start with 3 stitches and you increase one stitch in each row. To increase you knit twice the last stitch of every row. Voila 🙂 Very simple, very easy, very soothing, very calming and very very very snuggly ♥

2

Once you reach the high you desire (80cm for mine) you stop. And you’ll have a lovely shawl to wrap your neck with♥

3

♥ Yarn used: 5 x 50g of Debbie bliss cashmerino aran in Burnt Orange (OHHH How I love this color)

♥ Needles: 8mm

4

Now I started a second one in a deep lovely green (Scheepjes merino soft)

5

Have a lovely day!

Morning lovelies!

I finished my blue shawl last week. It was a lovely shawl, easy pattern to follow and a wonderful yarn to crochet with…

Some infos about this shawl

♥ Yarn: Debbie bliss baby cachmerino blue (About 9 x 50g with the fringes )

♥ Hook: 3.5 mm

♥ Pattern: The pattern is by mypicot.com You can find it if you google: mypicot 10007 shawl. I followed the exact chart but did not crochet the fringes on the sides. Instead I crocheted 5ch 😉

7

The first bedspread I am crocheting for my girls room is mostly done too. I still have 18 squares to add and an edging of course 🙂 I am totally completely in love with it ♥

8

and I am already planning the second one 🙂 Grannies… yes… my eternal love ♥

*The yarn I am using for both bedspread is Stylecraft special DK and Stylecraft life DK*

9

And I am also knitting. I want to finish my “trendy chale” before the cold. I love the color sooo much. It is the burnt orange of the Debbie bliss cashmerino aran and the needles 8mm 🙂 The “trendy chale” is a triangular very simple shawl and you increase just one stitch in each row. I love the simplicity of the design and the warm and snuggly look of the final shawl ♥

10

And I am still into knitted beanies. I am loving the chunky look of them knitted with chunky yarn. Here I am using the drops andes yarn ♥

That’s all my friends! All about my actual creative projects ♥

Stay safe, take care of yourself and see you very soon 😉

Much love,

Sucrette

The simple knitted beanie ♥

By | November 6th, 2015|"done", free patterns, knitted beanies, knitting, Uncategorized|17 Comments

Good morning my lovely friends!

I learned to knit many years ago. I was around 11 years old. We were stuck in shelters during the civil war and my mother to distract us taught us how to crochet and to knit. I did not really liked it then. I prefered to play outside. But after many long years I felt in love with crochet again and now, three months ago with knitting ♥ It is my new addiction and I love to mix between crochet and knitting.

1

I learned lately with some youtube videos about simple knitting projects and tried out the simple beanie one and you can guess by seeing all these pics that I loved it. It is a french video and I can’t seem to remember the source 🙁 I am very sorry. But I will try in this post to explain it to you a little bit. So simple you will be amazed by the result once done.

2

It is really easy to do. No increases and decreases 🙂 And after many trials I came out with the perfect number of stitches to begin with for every age of my children 😉

3

You have to knit a simple rectangle with straight sides. You can begin with a few rows of k2 p2 rib like I just did and continue with one knit row one purl row until you reach the high you want.

Once the high you desire is reached. You stop. Leave a tail of about 40cm long and cut your yarn. Then you put a needle to your remaining yarn tail and pass the needle and yarn through every stitch of your last row. And pull. Pull very tight. And sew your knitted piece with the remaining yarn and your needle. And tadaaaa your beanie is done ♥

4

I knitted these beanies you see in the above pics with an aran yarn (Debbie bliss cashmerino aran) and 5mm needles.

For my oldest daughter (10years old) I began with 76 stitches

For my 8 years old daughter : 72 stitches

And for my boy (3 years old): 64 stitches

And yesterday I tried to knit with a very chunky yarn and 10 mm needles and I loved it ♥

5

I started with 44 stitches and it was perfect for my 10 years daughter.

6

I love how fast I finished it (2 hours) and the result. So cosy and cute.

7

I am planning now to make some beanies with chunky yarn. Soooo easy and fast and I looooove the result ♥

8

That is all till now about my knitted beanie’s journey ♥

I hope that this post will give you the “push” you need to start knitting or come back to knitting or even knit more 🙂

 It is very easy. Very soothing. Very relaxing. You will enjoy it for sure and enjoy the results too!

Happy day to all!
