I am busy crocheting flowers for my class next week at Litet Nystan. I will be showing three basic designs that should be fairly easy to learn. This rose was knit in Kid Silk Haze, which makes it very delicate and small. But I also made a version using thicker mohair yarn, which produces a more robust flower.
As you may have notice I have recently become very fond of the Amineko crochet cat pattern. Now some ingenious person here in Sweden has decided to start a KAL (or should that be a CAL?) crocheting said cats for a sort of charity. The goal is to make 100 cats to give to babies born with heart issues at the Queen Silvia hospital for children and young adults in Gothenburg.
You can read more about it here (in Swedish only). I have decided to use the above yarn, Pakucho organic cotton.
I fell in love with Amineko a long time ago, but only recently did I take the time to actually make my own. I chose Visjögarn in grey (and some undyed for the paws and nose) and a size 3.5 mm hook.Then I spent the whole of Friday crocheting...
We were both exhausted by the time Edith was all finished.
She made friends with Wilbert at once. Well, he was the one who asked me to make her!
