Fiori selvatici / Wildflowers

Ho pensato ai fiori selvatici quando ho trovato questo cotone multicolore. 
L'ho preso senza un'idea precisa, solo più tardi mi è venuto in mente di provare qualcosa di diverso. Uno schema molto semplice, una rete, però mobile, in modo che lunghezza e ampiezza del capo siano regolabili a seconda delle necessità: può essere indossato come coprispalle che copre per intero il tronco, oppure come foulard se si sente fresco solo al collo. 
Sono molto soddisfatta di come è rimasto, trovo che sia versatile e adatto all'estate, visti i colori vivaci.


I thought about wildflowers when I found this multicoloured cotton.
I bought it without knowing what to crochet with it, only some time afterward I decided to try something different. A very simple pattern, a net, but a moving one, so you can choose its lenghth and width: you can wear this item as a shawl that covers your entire torso, or as a foulard if your neck feels cold. 
I'm really satisfied with how it turned out, I think it's versatile and suitable for Summer, given its bright colours.



Trovate anche questo capo nel mio shop, o se preferite potete come sempre contattarmi via e-mail.

You can find this item for sale in my shop, or you can send me an e-mail, as always.

    1. Grazie Franca! Ho usato un cotone cablé 4 e l'ho lavorato con l'uncinetto n° 7. Lo schema è quello di una semplice rete a rombi, rapido da realizzare, ma d'effetto! : )

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…

And here's the Dragon! / Ecco il Drago!

Remember the Dragon Tail scarf/shawl I began some time ago? Well, last week I managed to finish it, and I'm oh so proud of it. Not only it's my first Tunisian crochet project, but it also turned out great, big and cosy and oh so soft (this thanks to the lovely yarn Géraldine sent me, Phil Bambou Laine by Phildar). It is 2 m long from tip to tip and 45 cm wide by the last scale, and the last row counts 110 stitches, which are quite a lot... : ) As I already wrote I strongly recommend this if you want to try Tunisian crochet, it's easy, good fun and you get a nice original item to wear. You might find this tutorial by Julia Marquardt helpful, but if you want to get one that's exactly like mine you have to change the pattern a little bit: I followed the instructions by a great designer, MariaGrazia Berno, who modified it a bit in order to obtain a scarf/shawl that curls up more. Her pattern says to increase of two stitches at the end of every row, just before the second-…

The discovery of "Railway Knitting"

Hi folks! Here's a small adventure that happened to me that I'm gonna tell you about, mainly because it brought me to a really interesting discovery. Some days ago I received a message on Ravelry from a lady who's made her own Tunisian crochet version of the "Pfeilraupe" scarf. She sent me a picture to show me her work, which was simply stunning: she managed to recreate the exact shape of the knitted one, with marvelous use of short rows, plus in honeycomb stitch, which I love (you can check out her project page here). We exchanged a few messages, and by checking her profile I discovered that I was talking to Dela Wilkins! When the sudden feeling of being a complete idiot for not recognizing her before was gone, I felt (and still feel!) SO privileged: a famous teacher, a published author, took time to write ME about an item we both tried to make in TC. Wow!! Well, of course I did some more searching and found that Dela's book on TC, "Railway Knitting W…
