"November Shades"

Well, hello readers!
Thanks for all your nice comments about my article that's been published: I still haven't had time to translate it in good English, but I'm working on it and on the other ones, so I hope to post them here soon.
Today I'd like to show you a new project instead, a cowl called "November Shades", whose pattern is available both on Etsy and Ravelry. It's made once more with Tunisian crochet but this item is worked in the round! TC in the round is lots of fun: you have to work with two strands of yarn and a double-ended hook, so if you're an absolute beginner it can get tricky, but after a bit of practice it gets really enjoyable. Plus, if you take advantage of the double-ended hook to use two contrasting colors it creates a marvelous effect with pretty little effort.
I'd really like to hear your opinions about this item: I'll be honest, I'm quite proud of it and how it turned out, so I hope y'all like it as much as I do.
For those interested: pattern is available in English, Dutch and Italian, and I have a promotion going on on Ravelry only with which you can get both this and "Pumpkin Skin" at a reduced price. Coupon code is AutumnROX.

Ciao a tutti!
Grazie per i commenti sulla pubblicazione del mio articolo, mi ha fatto davvero piacere il vostro incoraggiamento!
Oggi vi mostro un nuovo progetto, uno scaldacollo che ho chiamato "November Shades", sempre lavorato ad uncinetto tunisino, ma stavolta in tondo. L'UT in tondo è davvero divertente: si lavora con due capi di filato e un uncinetto a doppia punta, quindi se siete principianti assoluti può risultare intricato, ma con un po' di pratica diventa molto piacevole. In più si può sfruttare a proprio vantaggio l'uncinetto a due punte e lavorare con due colori a contrasto: in questo modo si ottiene un risultato stupendo con poca fatica.
Sono curiosa di leggere le vostre opinioni su questo capo: ad essere sincera io ne sono piuttosto fiera e mi piace molto com'è venuto, spero piaccia anche a voi.
Per chi fosse interessato: lo schema è disponibile in italiano, inglese e olandese, e al momento c'è una promozione su Ravelry che permette a chi acquista anche "Pumpkin Skin" di ricevere i due modelli ad un prezzo scontato. Il codice da inserire è AutumnROX.


  1. Perfect shades for November!! It looks lovely and warm :)

  2. Wonderful! ♥ Such a pretty loop and the name is great. I've bookmarked it on Ravelry :-). Have a happy day! Nata xxx

  3. Ormai sei diventata bravissima con l'uncinetto tunisino...meravigliosa questa sciar bicolore..un bacione

Bye, Blogger

I'll write on my WordPress blog only, from now on, so if you want to follow me you'll find me there. I won't delete this blog, as I'm attached to it and it reminds me of the road I travelled so far, but at least for now I won't update it anymore.

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…
