To små vesker

Scroll for English

Jeg har fortsatt å jobbe med mitt lille hekleprosjekt denne uka. Det har vært veldig avslappende å få følge et ferdig mønster. Det har blitt mye scrapbooking i sommer og det var fantastisk å ta en tur innom garnbutikken og kjøpe garn til et nytt prosjekt. 


For første gang har jeg laget for til den lille veska. Det var veldig gøy å få bruke symaskinen til noe annet enn å legge opp bukser. Denne gangen kommer jeg med oppdateringer etter hvert. 

Jeg ønsker alle en god uke videre.

Two little purses 


I’ve continued to work on my small crochet project this week. I’ve been doing a lot of scrapbooking this summer, and it was a fantastic feeling to go to the yarn shop and by yarn for a new project. 

This is also the first time I’ll sew lining in my crochet project. It is fun to finally use my sewing machine for something else than make the legs of my jeans shorter. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

Little ladies for the bathroom

71dd

My grandmother used to make bathroom-dolls, so sooner or later I had to make them too. I’ve had the idea since I started the blog, but there were so many other projects that I wanted to finish first. I started on this one in May last year, but I felt very insecure whether I was able to make a pattern that others could follow, or not.

70dd

My grandmother once showed me how to make them, but I have not been able to remember how. I even have an old dress laying arround that she made, but I’m not able to see how she did it. I looked through several books and finally found crossed half double crochet, and this is the closest I’ll ever get.

65dd

 

I found it hard to describe the technique, and even more difficult to translate it to English. I hope that all the pictures make you understands my pattern.

Good luck!

I wish to thank my boyfriend, Arne Otto Myklebust, for lending me his beautiful bathroom for the photos.

Yarn

  • For the lillac dress I used Søstrene Grene: Anna & Claras Cotton nr: 16-3416
  • The blue is made of  Gjestal Cotton Sport: 326
  • White: Gjestal Cotton Sport: 302
  • Crochet hook number 3 mm

Abbreviation

  • ch st: chain stitches
  • ch: chain
  • hdc: half double crochet
  • sl st: slip stitch
  • dc: double crochet
  • sc: single crochet
  • st: stitch
  • r: round

Round 1

Click on pictures to enlarge.

  1. Chain 20.
  2. Fasten r with sl st in first ch.
  3. Ch 2 (= 1 hdc)

Round 2

  1. Yarn over.
  2. Put your hook through the second ch st, and yarn over.
  3. Pull the yarn through the ch st, and yarn over your hook.
  4. Put your hook through the next ch st and yarn over again.
  5. Pull the yarn through the ch st. You now have 5 loops on your hook.
  6. Yarn over.23dd
  7. Pull the loop through all 5 loops.
  8. Ch 2.

Repeat from 1 to 8 all the way around. Fasten round with sl st in the first hdc, that is the second ch st on the ch2=1hdc.

 

Round 3 – 5

Start each round like this:

  1. ch 2.
  2. Yarn over your hook.
  3. Put your crochet hook through the stitch that is on top of the first hdc that is crocheted together. Yarn over.
  4. Pull the yarn through the stitch and yarn over again.
  5. Put your hook through the next st, the one on top of the next hdc that is crocheted together. Yarn over your hook.
  6. Pull the yarn trough the st, now you hav 5 loops on your hook. You see from the picture that I have crocheted in the st on top of the hdc that is crocheted together in the previous round.
  7. Yarn over and pull it through all the 5 loops.
  8. Ch 2.

Continue for the rest of the rounds like this: 

60dd

Fasten each round with a sl st in the first hdc (ch2=1hdc). Look at the picture to the left, it is easy to see that the hdc that is crocheted together, starts in the same st as the previous one.

You start each round as I described over, and continue as explained in the last thumbnails.

 

Round 6

Now you are going to increase for the skirt. In order to do this, you must both crochet in all the ch2-spaces and in all the st on top of the hdc that is crocheted together in the previous round.

  • In picture 1 you can see that I have crocheted in the ch2-space.
  • In picture 2 you can see that I also have crocheted in top of the hdc that is crocheted together.

You do this in round 6.

Round 7

In this round you increase only in every second ch2-space.

  • In picture 1 you see that I have crocheted in the ch-2 space and in the st on top of the hdc that is crocheted together.
  • In picture 2, I skip the ch2-space and crochet in the st on top of the hdc that is crocheted together.

Round 8 to 23

From round 8 to 23 you only crochet in the st that is on top of the hdc that is crocheted together in the previous round. Follow the instructions abowe:

  • «Start each round like this»
  • «Continue for the rest of the rounds like this»

I made 23 rounds, it depends on how large your roll of toilet paper is. The white edgings makes the dress to shrink and I had to add 3 extra rounds after I had made the edgings.

59ddStraps

Fasten your yarn in a st on top of the dress, use a sl st. Ch 12, skip 9 st, 1 sc in each of the next 2 st. Ch 12, skip 9 st and fasten with a sl st beside the first sl st.

Edging on the straps

Use the white yarn. Fasten the yarn with a sl st in the first ch st of the strap. See the picture to the left below.

Ch 3=1dc. Then crochet 1 dc in each of the next 11 ch st, 3 sc in front, and 1 dc in each of the next ch st.

Cut the yarn and start over where you made your ch3=1dc. Ch 3 again. * 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st*. Repeat from * to * 4 times. 1 dc in each of the next 5 st. Crochet *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st*. Repeat from * to * 4 times. Cut the yarn and weave in tail.

Switch to silver yarn and make an edging. I made the silver edging with 1 sc in each of the second loop of the dc.

Edges on the skirt

44dd

Fasten the yarn with a sl st in the st on top of the hdc that is crocheted together.

Make 1 ch st=1sc.

*5 dc in each ch-2 space, 1 sc in st on top of the hdc that is crocheted together.* Repeat from * to * all the way around. Fasten with sl st. I made 5 edges.

I also made a silver edging. Fasten the silver yarn with a sl st in the second loop of the first dc in any dc group. Ch1=1sc, make 1 sc in each of the next 4 dc, then make a long dc in between the dc groups.  *Make 1 sc in the second loop of each of the next 5 dc, then make a long sc in between the dc groups* Repeat from * to * all the way around.

Hat45dd

R 1:  7 sc in magic ring. Crochet in continuous rounds, mark the beginning of the r with some yarn.

R 2: 2 sc in each st.

R 3: *1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*. Repeat from * to * 7 times.

R 4: *1 sc in each of the next 2 st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat form * to * 7 times.

Contiue in rows:

5-8: Ch 1 = 1 sc, turn your work and make 1 sc in each of the next 19 st. ch 1 and turn. Repeat until you have 4 rows. Cut the yarn and weave in end.

White edging

Fasten the white yarn with a sl st in the first st in the end of the row. *ch 3, skip 1 st, 1 sc in next st*, repeat form * to * until you have 10 ch3-spaces.

Make sure that you now look at the inside of the hat, and that the front of the dc turn towards you. Make a sl st in the first ch-3 space, ch 3=1dc, then make 4 dc in the same ch3-space. *Make 1 sc in the sc between the ch3- spaces, 5 dc in the ch-3 spaces*. Repeat from * to * til end of row. Cut the yarn and weave in ends.

Silver edging for hat
72dd

Ch 30, then fasten the yarn with a sl in the second loop for the first dc. Remember to start from the right and crochet to the left. Crochet 1 sc in each dc and 1 long sc between the dc groups. *1 sc in each second loop of the 5 next dc, 1 long sc in the sc between the dc groups*. Repeat from * to * until you reach the end of the edging, ch 30 and fasten the yarn with a tight knot.

You may style your doll as much as you like. My lilac doll got both a hat and a silver belt while the blue one only got the dress.

Tid for påskehekling

24ph

  • Scroll for english text.

Det er så koselig å pynte litt til påske. I fjor laget jeg denne lille krabaten og han ble en stor suksess. Det er så koselig når han står i gangen og tar imot alle som er innom. Jeg laget flere mønster i fjor og i de neste ukene kommer jeg til å legge mønstrene ut igjen. Når vi kommer nærmere påske skal jeg også legge ut en video for hvordan du kan hekle disse søte glassbrikkene.HR1

 

Easter is coming

I love to decorate the house for Easter. Last year I made this cute bunny and he became a huge success. I love it when he stands in the hall welcoming everybody. I also made other Easter-pattern last year, and in the next few weeks I will reblog the patterns. I’m also planning to make a brand new video-tutorial for how to make these cute easter coasters.

Soft Winter Cowl

 

Sjal 6

  • Norske lesere: Se forrige post for norsk mønster.

It’s been a terrible weather lately, first we had a storm that turned into a hurricane, and then it startet to snow – a lot. Cold winter weather is beautiful, but quite chilling. In times like these it feels wonderful to wear a soft cowl that keeps you warm. This one is very easy to make, and I think that even new crocheters will find it easy to make.

16sj

In Norway Valentinesday and Mothersday is on the same day this year. Maybe this cowl will be a nice gift for your mother?

I thought it was quick to make, and I enjoyed crocheting it. When it’s cold, I light the fireplace and make myself a hot drink while I’m crocheting.

 

 

 

19sj

I love cowls, shawls and scarfs, I really can’t get enough of them. Soon my hat rack is collapsing because of all the cowls I have put on it 🙂

Yarn and hook20sj

Molly from Järbo garn. 100 percent acrylic.

You can also use a yarn where 10 stitches = 10 centimeter.

  • 5 skeins of Molly, Järbo garn, grey, 35022.
  • Hook 6 mm.

Abbreviation

  • st: stitch
  • treble crochet: tr
  • ch st: chain stitch
  • sl st: slip stitch

Pattern
1sj

Ch 120. Fasten in first ch st with sl st. Make sure that your chain dosen’t twist.

This cowl is made of groups from treble crochet. Leave the last loop of each tr on your hook. Explanation under the pictures.

You can click on the picture to enlarge it.

 

 

  1. Make the first group in the same st as your sl st. Start with 4 ch st = 1 tr.
  2. Then make a tr, but leave the last loop on your hook.
  3. Make tr number 3 in same st and leave the last loop on your hook. Now you have 3 loops on your hook.
  4. Make a new loop on your hook and pull it trough all 3 loops.
  5. Ch 2.
  6. *Skip 2 ch st, 3 tr in nexst st, remember to leave the last loop from each tr on your hook. Now you have 4 loops. Make a new loop on your hook, and pull it trough all the 4 loops. Ch 2.* Repeat from * to* all the way around your cowl.

8sj

Fasten round with sl st in the 4th ch( in 4 ch st=1 tr).

  1. Start all your rounds in this way: Make sl st in each st until you reach the first ch-2 space. 1 sl st in 2-ch space, ch 4=1 tr.
  2. Make 2 tr in ch-2 space. Remember to leave the last loop of each tr on your hook. Make a new loop on your hook and pull it through the 3 loops.
  3. Ch 2.
  4. Make 3 tr in next ch-2 space, leave the last loop of each tr on your hook. Now you have 4 loops.
  5. Make a new loop on your hook and pull it through all 4 loops.
  6. Ch 2.

Repeat from 4. to 6. until end of round. Fasten with sl st. Each round starts with 1. to 3, then repeat from 4. to 6. until end of round.

Make 8 rounds, 9 rounds are too many – I tried and it became too thick around my neck.

39vb

(For norsk mønster: Se forrige bloggpost!)

Welkome back to Heklepiken.com (Crochet Girl)! Due to some positive changes in life, I had to take a brief «vacation» from my blog, but I’ve been crocheting a lot, and planning patterns for this winter and spring. You have a lot of fun to look forward to!

38vb

These last weeks I’ve been in a Valentine-mood. I wanted to make a cute Valentine Teddy, but felt a bit insecure about making a pattern out of my work for my readers. I think it went quite well, and I hope you understand my pattern.

43vb

The Teddy turned out to be a little Lady, maybe I shall call her Lady Teddy? I think she looks so cute sitting in this classy mirror-corner that my boyfriend has in his hall. I think she is planning to spend the Valentine weekend on the table. I just have to show you som pictures from the hall, I think it’s very classic. And of corse, I made the runner.

Heart for the belly

If you want a heart for the teddys belly, you can visit this page, Little Birdie secrets:

Pink paw for the hands

Make two paws.28vb

  1. 6 sc in magic ring. 6 st
  2. 2 sc in each st. 12 st

Cut the yarn and leave a tail for assembling.

Butterfly-bow

I found a video-tutorial on YouTube for how to make a small butterfly. I liked it so much that I decided to make a bow out of it.

Assembling

15vb

If small children are going to play with the teddy, make sure to sew all the parts carefully together. If this is a gift for someone special, you can use a glue gun to attach the small parts.

Start attaching the head and the body, now she looks like a mushroom 😀

16vb

  1. Squeeze the top of the leg to make it a bit flat, this makes it easer to make the leg point forward.
  2. I wanted the teddy to sit so both the legs and the arms are pointing forward.
  3. Turn the teddy upside down, this makes it ease to see that the legs are in the right position.

Attach the arms just above the legs. When you sew the ears to the head, make sure not to attach them to high, this will make her look like a mouse.

26vb

 

Use pink yarn for the snout, then switch to brown for the nose and the mouth.

 

 

 

 

 

Attach the tiny hearts to the feet, and the paws to the hands. Then it’s time to sew the tail to the body.

Eyes

I used some scrap yarn for the eyes. Sandnes Duo for the eye and Solberg Fiol for the eyelashes.

Finally i sew the eyelashes to the eyes and attached the butterfly to the head.

This is how she turned out from the side and from behind.

She is very small and fits in my hand.

Have fun and keep those hooks working!

Afghan made of HeidiBlossom

58lt

Finally I’m starting blogging again. I’m so sorry that you haven’t heard anything from me for months, but I was busy working and switching jobs, but now I’m back in businPus og Sophieess.

I’ve been crocheting – of course – but not designing my own patterns. I will soon start designing again and new patterns will come on my blog.

This summer and fall I’ve been working on a Sophie, and my lovely Sibiran cat Duchess, loves it when I crochet.

I’ve been working on my afghan made from HeidiBlossom all spring. Both the granny square and the blanket are my own design. I’ve made different patterns of the HeidiBlossom to fit different projects and yarns like the baby afghan, pillows and coasters.

It’s been so fun to make my own granny square, and even make three different patterns of the square: one for very bulky yarn, one for coasters and one for thinner yarn. For larger pictures, klick on them.

This is my first afghan, and I had no idea how the result would turn out, but it was fun, rewarding and I think it turned out quite well.

64lt

 

71lt

I tried to make one square each day, and it was fun to see how the piles grew.

 

 

 

66lt

I thought it would be a huge job, but it was remarkably quick to make. In the end I made it way to big. But it is nice that both the children and my Siberian cat loves the afghan.

68lt

 

57lt

The size is 11 x 6 squares. If you have a shorter son than I, its enough with 9 squares in the length.

My son loves the blanket and he is very grateful that we finally have an afghan than can cover him 🙂

 

Each square is 18 cm x 18 cm.

 

 

 

 

 

Yarn and hook

1lt

The yarn is Soft Interiør from Trysil.

Woolspun from Lion Brand Yarn maybe an alternative for you living in the USA and Canada. Note: I have not tested this for my self. This yarn is 80 percent acrylic and 20 percent wool. My yarn is 50 percent acrylic and 50 percent bamboo.

  • My yarn is approximately 110 m = 100 g.
  • Woolspun is approximately 116 m = 100 g, or 3,5 oz = 127 yd.
  • The recommended hook for Woolspun is 6,5 mm, but you can choose to use a larger hook.
  • The recommended hook for my yarn is 6 mm or 8 mm, I used 8 mm.

If you are going to make a big blanket like the one I made, you need:

  • 9 skeins  of beige, number 23
  • 12 skeins of white, number 05
  • 8 skeins with lilac, number 64
  • 7 skeins with dark grey, number 08

I made three combinations of the granny square:

Assembling

I assembled the granny squares with single crochet, just like I did it when I made my pillow. Follow the link for tutorial:

Edging

I like to make a nice finish to all my work and decided to make an edging with petals.

45lt

I decide to use white and mad to rounds with sc.

  • Round 1 and 2: Crochet two rounds with 1 single crochet in each st, fasten rounds with sl st. Corner: 2 sc, ch 2, 2 sc.
  • Round 3: Ch 1 (= 1 sc), * ch 5, skip 4 st, 1sc in next st* Repeat from * to * all the way around the blanket.
  • Corner: I made a sc in each corner, even when the side didn’t add up – see picture above.

Petal edging

I made petals in the ch-5 spaces.

Start in the first ch-5 after any corner and make your first petal:

  1. 2 sc
  2. 2 dc
  3. 1 tr
  4. 2 dc
  5. 2 sc. Remember to skip the sc between the ch-5 spaces.

Corner: I made 1 sc in the sc in the corner from previous round, see picture number 3. Fasten round with sl st.

Purple edge

In the final round i made a lilac edge in the back loop of the stitches from the previous round. This is the same technique as in round 6. Go to round 6 if you need large pictures.

  • Start in the second sc at any petal, and fasten your yarn with a sl st. Ch1 (= 1 sc). Crochet in the back loop and make a sc in each of the next 6 stitches. Skip the last st and make a long sc in the sc that you made when you made the ch-5 spaces.
  • * Skip the first sc from the previous round, sc in the next 7 st – remember to crochet in the back loop, skip the last sc, make a long sc between the petals, that is the sc that you made when you made the ch-5 spaces * Repeat from * to * all the way around the blanket. Fasten with sl st in the first sc and fasten your loose end.

Finally done! Now its time to relax in the sofa and start a new project – maybe a smaller one this time 🙂
