Collane tricot / Spool knitting necklaces

Un post rapido per condividere con voi un genere di lavoro di cui non vi ho mai parlato: le collane realizzate con la tecnica del tricotino. Il mio fidanzato ha la pazienza necessaria per creare le catenelle, più o meno lunghe, scegliamo insieme gli charm con cui abbellirle e poi io mi diverto ad assemblarle. 
Cosa ne dite di queste nostre piccole creazioni?
Quello che mi piace di queste collane è che grazie alla maglia tubolare restano molto morbide e leggerissime, ideali da indossare anche nelle giornate più calde.
Per oggi vi mostro solo queste due bianche, ma ne abbiamo realizzate tante altre, e le trovate tutte sul nostro shop.

A quick post to share with you something I've never written about before: our spool knitting necklaces. My boyfriend's got the patience to make the tubes, then we choose the charms with which adorn them, and my job is the fun to put them together. 
What do you think of these little creations? 
What I like about these necklaces is that thanks to the tube they're very soft and they weigh almost nothing, so they're ideal to wear on hot days, too.
Today I'll show just a couple of them, but we've made a lot more, and you can find them all on our shop.


  1. They are very pretty, Melatia! I like crocheted (cotton) necklaces as well. They are so comfortable at the neck and you don't have to worry about things like nickel allergy or so :D. Have a nice evening! Nata xxx

100th post!

Hello everyone! I'm always pretty absent from my blog, I know. The Turn of the Wheel between October and November has brought back my creative inspiration and made it stronger than ever, so I've been incredibly busy with hooks and wools! : )  To celebrate my blog's 100th post I decided to share with you my latest finished project, a stole/scarf I made for Mum as a Xmas gift. I found this wool at a local market and chose the color with my boyfriend, as the gift is meant to be from the both of us. For those of you who may be interested, yarn is "Tosca Light" by Lang Yarns, shade 0048 "Altrosa". Craft on the other hand is once again Tunisian crochet, with whom I'm totally in love, and pattern is called "Sillabub", by great designer MariaGrazia Berno (check out some of  her others here). Since I still think of myself as a newbie regarding this technique I'm incredibly satisfied with its look - and the feel, oh, if I could tell you how sof…

Tunisian crochet hooks, pt. 1 / Uncinetti tunisini, parte 1

When it comes to Tunisian crochet, one of the first issues people face is: which hooks should I choose? I decided to write about my own experience in 2 or 3 posts, and hopefully help some of you. When I first wanted to try Tunisian crochet, I only had a couple of long hooks at home, and they were definitely too thin for a newbie, like 2,5 mm or such. So I headed to a local store and bought me a nice 5 mm one. It was the classic long, straight aluminium hook with a plastic stopper at one end and a pretty rounded tip at the other end, branded Pony. I practiced a bit with it, and I struggled because of the rounded tip. I didn't give up, though: I purchased some bigger sizes by the same brand, which were double-ended and all plasticI couldn't use those to save my life. The yarn didn't glide on them, and using them hurt my wrist terribly. Silly newbie I was, I blamed it all on the technique itself and took a pause from it, even though I did enjoy it. Too painful. Keep in min…
