I have been craving a crochet bikini top for at least a year now. This was my first attempt, and as such it’s a success. Next time, I will make the cups a bit larger, for a more comfortable fit. I used 50g exactly of Alize Forever Simli (280m/50g) and a…

In the last couple of months (I guess since I have written up my craft goals), I have finished up quite a few projects, and I would love to show them off – in addition to ones that have already got their own post. Crochet doilies. I have made three, and…

A very good friend of mine has asked me to make for her and her toddler daughter matching summer beanies. She sent me this photo as a sample of what she liked: I was able to actually find the pattern – sort of. Here it is (in Spanish). However, I had to…
