Crochet craze

As days pass by i know i have so much to learn and my fascination is heightened every time i come across a new stitch..a new pattern..and a new design discovery..

                                                             
Minion Crochet Time

They are the cutest sweetest loveliest thing i have ever seen.Basically i am not a fan of amigurumi. But when i got the idea of an amigurumi minion, i knew i had to do it. Saw a few tutorials online and did my own version.
Design aspect- This one is an easy design .Just learn the basics of amigurumi like SC, decreasing , increasing, thats all.

Mini coin purse

Whenever i ccme accross a vintage sort of product i feel a strong affinity to it..Indian or foreign..Purses with metal frame gives me that happiness when i am designing them.Granny square pattern is done and fitted to this imported metal frame for that antique look.

Classy Party Hand Cluch

Design idea i got it from a lace tote on pinterest. Somehow i like my products to be a bit sturdy mostly because its always good to have a shape of its own.So what i did was create a simple clutch purse and made a seperate motif with shiny golden yarn for some sturdiness.

Turquoise Trendy Bag

Another pattern i was dying to learn and try.
Its a very trendy design and turquoise blue gave the oomph factor to the bag.Would be great to team it with a white top blue jeans..or a black dress..

Tropical Fun Bag

Just as it looks, cheerful and pleasant, its made for some one who is jovial and exuberant young girl.
That was the reason behind the pink and white selection and the flower crown gave a very princess effect to it.She wanted the sling pattern and hence the colorful matching sling pattern.
And the best part is she loved it...
Design is beginner level with granny squares joined and puff stitch flowers sewed as shown.

These are done using chain flower pattern meaning they are not seperate flowers. This type is used mainly for lace patterns.

Story Sofar.....
This craze started soon after college when i bought a mobile pouch which was knitted .Back of my head i kept thinking about the knots and stitches in them..i didnt know word crochet also..
Then a friend knitted a pink baby blanket and i thought it was soooo beautiful and so i decided to learn..
My grandmother became my teacher.
She was a pro at crochet once and when i asked her to teach me ,she was so quick at creating the stitches as if she was doing it till yesterday and i was astonished...!!!
Now lemme show few of my trials and experiments..
1. learning some stitches..Planning to turn them in to head band or wrist band...
2.Dangling earring pattern..
3.Ring earring pattern..
4.I was trying a pattern and wen it finished..i thought it turned in a designer jewelry.
:-)
5.Earrings..Crochet is all abt numbers.Since i didnt count the no of stitches in the first one,the second one looks a bit diff...
7.A thing of pride i would call it..my first crochet purse and i love it..its my mob pouch..
Stitch is double crochet.
7.Black beauty..a gift for my fav cuz...as pretty as her...
This is again a double crochet pattern.
8. Another small pouch for gifting.Am sure it will bring a smile.
Pattern is Triple Crochet.



9,This one is a crochet earring design with beads.
One thing i noticed is that crochet earrings or the jewelry is so light weight that we would feel so relaxed wearing it.Its a double crochet pattern.
When working with beads please remember to insert the beads first in to the yarn and then start the project.

10. New addition is a granny square mat...which i did in diff colours.
It has become a doily for our glass table.


11.Flowers are always my love..So this ones are my fav..





12. An idea to give some weight to my lightweight earrings..I think only then it would stay right above our shoulders.

                                  15. Crochet Purse with some puff and joined dcs.

This is totally my own design i can say.When i made puff stitch purse, i knew it was a plain pattern.

Design pattern is same on both sides.
Pattern-

chain 4 and dc.then chain 1 and dc(do this 8 times)
now in every chain space do a joined dc of 2dcs with 2 chain space.(ie first do a joined dc two times.chain 2 and do a joined dc of 2.repeat this in every chain space of previous ring.
now in every chain space do a puff stitch.(ie do 5 dcs.then join the first dc with last dc) and chain 2.repeat this in all the chain 2 spaces.
Lastly so 3 dcs in every space follwed by 1 chain to the next space and 2 at the corners to form a square.

Make 4 similar squares and attach with panels(dc stitches) in the middle and above.
Make a plated string to end.
