Convergence Top: Maschenprobe/Gauge Swatch

Ich hatte noch nie ein so weiches und angenehmes Garn! Alize Bamboo Fine Batik.

Never ever worked with such a nice and soft yarn! Alize Bamboo Fine Batik.


The Kram Cardi - a WIP

Nachdem ich sie letztes Jahr weggelegt habe, habe ich nun an der Kram Cardi weitergehäkelt (Merinowolle bei über 30 Grad muss man echt gehabt haben! ;) ). Es fehlen eigentlich nur noch die Ärmel. Das Muster von KT and the Squid ist wirklich toll geschrieben und auch für große Größen geeignet. Für Tipps meinerseits dürft ihr gerne meine Projektseite besuchen.

After putting it away last year, I now pulled out the Kram Cardi again to finish it (How fun to crochet with merino wool in this HOT weather! ;) ). Now only the sleeves are missing. The pattern by KT and the Squid is very well written and also suitable for bigger sizes. For tips you might like to visit my project page.

The Adriatic Squares: Nummer 18/Number 18


Nummer 18 ist ein ein weiteres Mitred Granny Square, weil ich fand, dass im ersten zuviel Weiß war. Wenn ihr alle bisherigen Quadrate sehen möchtet, besucht die Projektseite bei Ravelry.

Number 18 is another Mitred Granny Square, as the frist one had too much white in it for my taste. For seeing all the squares I made so far, visit my Ravelry project page.

The Adriatic Squares: Nummer 17/Number 17


Von der letzten Reise habe ich einige neue Quadrate mitgebracht. Das hier ist Nr. 17 und heißt: Ich-hasse-schlecht-geschriebene-Muster-Quadrat. Fünfmal aufgeribbelt und dann gemerkt, dass das Muster falsch ist. Also einfach frei Schnauze weitergehäkelt.

I brought some more squares home with me from the last road trip. This is No 17 and I officially call it the "I hate badly written patterns square". Frogged five times, until I realized that the pattern was wrong. So I winged it.

Rainbows after the Rain CAL: Part 1 Traditional Granny Square (with or without a twist)

Hello and good morning for the beginning of the Rainbows after the Rain Blanket and Poncho CAL! The BIG day is finally here and Zelna and I are looking forward to seeing a lot of beautiful crochet art again after the fabulous Wade's Blanket CAL in 2015.

Remember that Zelna's blanket and poncho differ a bit from my baby blanket layout called "Rainbows over the Namib Desert", which you can see in the photo and in the layout chart below. But you can always make a certain amount of squares and mix and match them in the end with or without the stripe patterns we will post during the CAL. The patterns will be published every second week on Friday. Joining the single pieces of the blankets and poncho will be the last part of it.




OK, so let's go with the first pattern which is:

Traditional Granny Square (with a Twist)


The Granny Square was a part of Wade's Blanket back in 2015 and is very simple square design, suitable for all crochet skill levels. In the photo above you can see the set of Granny Squares I made for my Wade's Blanket. For my Rainbows over the Namib Desert I only made five squares (see photo above). A photo tutorial for making the Wade's Squares (with the ,,twist") can be found here. Zelna created a slightly easier version for the RAR CAL, in which you don't have to turn your work after each round (the ,,twist"). This might be easier for beginners to follow. The choice is up to you! :)


If you join the CAL and would love to share any squares you made, make sure to join us in the Zooty Owl Crocht-a-long Group on Facebook!

GIANT Gorgeous Granny Bag: Ta-daaaahhh!

Und da ist sie!!!!! Bin ganz verliebt. GIANT Gorgeous Granny Bag, frei nach dem Muster Gorgeous Granny Bag von Zooty Owl gehäkelt, allerdings mit Chunky-Garn und nicht mit DK. Das Muster musste ich wegen des dickeren Garns etws abwandeln und auch die Griffe habe ich durch festes Baumwollband ersetzt, so dass auch schwerere Sachen transportiert werden können. Gefüttert ist sie ebenfalls.

And there it is!!!!! I'm in love. GIANT Gorgeous Granny Bag, loosley based on the Gorgeous Granny Bag pattern by Zooty Owl, crocheted with chunky yarn instead of dk. I had to change the pattern due to the thicker yarn and chenged the handles from crocheted to solid woven cotton handles, so I can carry heavier projects in it, too. I also lined the bag.
