OwletaSecret03W

Owleta’s Secret Vest

A Brioche (so called for its resemblance in shape to the well known French cake of that name) may be as easily worked in crochet as in knitting. With a little trick you can transform regular half double crochet stitches into knit-like stitches, that are also very elastic!
These reversible soft ribs will hug you and keep you toasty warm all fall, winter and into spring. There will be few times your princes won’t find an excuse to wear her stylish vest!
Treat your loved ones with the luxurious feel of this vest this delightful winter! Opt for bamboo or cotton blends for fall and spring time. A perfect gift idea too!

Crochet à la Brioche Cowl Crochet Pattern

 

Cowl01

 

Every this-time-of-a-year since I released knitted Meringue Cowl pattern,  I receive so many requests for a crochet version. Well, here are several techniques to emulate Brioche knitting, like single crochet worked in back loops for example. But my most favorite method is working in third loop of half double crochet.

So, I wrote Crochet à la Brioche Scarf pattern explaining 3rd loop hdc stitch and “tested” it a pretty simple and such fast to crochet scarf project. Recently, I received several requests for cowl option. Thank you so much for your interest, it’s my absolute pleasure to design for you!! So, let me introduce…

Owleta’s Secret Vest | Preview

Hi my dears friends,

How are you? I was busy like a bee and I have some news for you.

If you know me, I am a huge fan of owls. And even if every fall I tried to be timely with some new designs, I got luck just once in 2010 with Whimsical Forest Peek-a-Boo Coat and Owl Jacket ;o) So, this year I decided to start from Winter/Holidays Owl designs…. and seems it was right decision ;o) So, let me introduce Owleta–the owl collection for every Imagical season. Winter/Holidays collection was inspired by such cutie Swarovski little owl my lovely friend’s gift from Italy (unfortunately, the picture below just can’t justify the beauty of my absolute favorite owl!)

 

OwletaLogo

 

So far I ended up with 6 designs for Winter/Holidays collection, and first one is Owleta’s Secret vest. I am in such a love with my Peek-a-Boo Hood idea so I decided to bring it back with some fresh and festive look. The pattern is half way done and more details are coming soon. This vest is made with my absolutely favorite Cascade Yarns Pacific and Lion Brand Yarn Fun Fur for fun and furry touches.

Treat your loved ones with the luxurious feel of Owleta’s Secret vest this delightful winter! Opt for bamboo or cotton blends for fall and spring.

Candy Clouds | Baby Blanket/Throw Crochet Pattern (EAP)

CandyCloudsBlanket01

Candy Clouds Blanket
The sky’s the limit! Give Baby the sweetest of sleep and the best of dreams with this unbelievably luxurious and fun afghan. No matter what time of year Baby is expected to arrive, this blanket is suitable for any season—just add a ribbon in appropriate color, and watch little eyes grow wide in delight before Baby snuggles into the clouds for a nap!

IMAGINE THIS: Because the blanket size is so easily adjusted, make it a baby blankie, a king-size comforter, or crochet just first two-tree pattern repeats to make a pretty and delicate scarf for yourself. Even more, crocheting two repeats of both sides of Blanket with a ribbon in a middle, will make a playful-any-season accessory for your little one! But why stop here?! Crochet it with gorgeous merino wool yarn for cold days, or use any yarn weights for other seasons and occasions. Make an equally stunning blanket in colors of your choice!

Below are some season-ribbon-inspiration from my stash… but why stop here?! Crochet with gorgeous merino wool yarn for cold days, or use any yarn weights for other seasons and occasions. Make an equally stunning blanket in colors of your choice!
