Another pineapple market bag

This pineapple market bag is very popular. It is not only interesting and beautiful, but also handy for up coming summer. Finally I found a little time to make one for myself.


There are pictures to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern for this market bag.
I have added charts as well. It may even be helpful with learning to read the charts.

I have to admit adding the lining is a bit tricky. But a little patience and extra effort can turn your market bag into “regular shoulder bag”.

Long Pineapple Coat/Duster – full written pattern

Hi,
I found pictures of this jacket or duster and I fell in love with it. I was searching for the pattern since around Christmas time and I had to give up. I couldn’t find one.



























I didn’t have any other choice so I made my own pattern. I only had four pictures from Pinterest that I could work with. It took me over a month of trying, crocheting and unraveling and crocheting again. It is not an exact copy of the jacket on the picture, because I couldn’t see all of it on the photos, but I think I got very close. What do you think?









I used anti-pilling baby acrylic yarn, but I think you can use any yarn you like for this project.

Since the shape of the coat is meant to be loose, so t fits most sizes. You can vary the size of your coat by using different types of material and size of hooks.

I’m confident the written pattern is suitable for a dedicated beginner as well.

Beaded bracelet – free tutorial

Hi,
I found a video tutorial for a “ beaded crochet chain” and my little daughter asked, if I could make bracelet like that for her and her friend.
I found that the tutorial was very understandable and easy to follow. It is in English, but I didn’t even turn the volume up and I could still understand how it was made. I think you can use any yarn you like and you need just a few meters. I used some leftover Christmas sparkly, stretchy acrylic yarn for example.
I have got a feeling I will have to make more of them, once my daughter will take it to school.
I think it looks very pretty and romantic.




You can find the video tutorial here. No registration, for free:

White flower top – full written pattern

Hello,

Summer is coming very fast and I think a flower top like this could come in handy. The pattern is written for a sleeveless top, a top with sleeves and even for a dress -3 in 1. To crochet the top is not as time consuming as my pineapple patterns usually are. You can see the progress very fast.





For this top with sleeves I used 220g of cotton (100g = 416meters) suitable for E/3,5 mm hook, but I used a little bit bigger crochet hook than suggested - G/4mm.
The neckline and cuffs are crocheted by joining flower motives. The body and sleeves are crocheted in rounds. The crochet stitch is a bit stretchy, that way the pattern can be used for more sizes S, M, L. You will find the adjustments for larger sizes XL and XXL within the full written pattern as well.
There are many pictures to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern. I do believe this pattern is suitable for a dedicated beginner as well.

Another octagon pineapple shoulder bag

Hello,
I made another pineapple shoulder bag and octagon shape proved to be interesting choice. It is custom made. And it is without handles – a customer requested this as she’s going to put her own on it.





























I was using lighter white/pearl colored yarn - 60% cotton/40% acrylic.
It’s better to use stronger materials for lining. In this case I used very light beige denim. It gives the bag its strength, holds it in shape and the beige color makes the white top stand out nicely. This color combination gives you freedom to use any shape and/or color of handles you desire.  







































I wrote the pattern for this shoulder bag a few months ago. There are many pictures to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern.
