Knitting, Yarn & Coffee

 I am in love with this color palette!
 Lazy Sundays!
Coffee & crochet!
Forest walks are my favorite!
I recently made these mini choco/vanilla cakes!
 Working on a new chunky crochet project!
 New knitting project!
Note taking, cupcake eating and crocheting!

Happy Friday to you! These are a few of my favorite Instagram snapshots! Seasons are changing, so inevitably my yarn color palette has been filled with warmer and autumnish colors!:)

I have been working on several projects, which I can't wait to share here on the blog! The list includes knitting as well, as I am trying to perfect my skills, as I desperately want to knit up a sweater or a cardigan!
If you have any suggestions/ books/ patterns regarding this matter please share them!

Regarding crochet, I can only tell you that something big is coming! Haha! I have been working with super bulky/chunky yarn and a large crochet hook; I can;t wait to show you the finished thing!

Wishing you a relaxing weekend!
Enjoy the rest of your day!

Halloween Mug Cozies for I Like Crochet

Fall, Autumn, Halloween... It's that time of year again! The perfect time to start working with warmer yarn colors, bake an apple pie, search for pumpkins, and cozy up on the sofa!

I recently shared this triple Halloween mug cozy set in Issue 2 of I Like Crochet! These cozies were so much fun to make; I love it how the brighten up a simple mug! You can get the instructions to make your own inside the Autumnal packed Issue here!

I hope you're having a great week so far! I can't wait to share what I have been working on lately, so stay tuned!:)

Crochet Nordic Mitts Pattern

I am so excited to finally be able to share what I have been working on the last few weeks! A mitten pattern that is made with the tapestry or fair isle crochet technique! I am so happy about this pattern as I have been meaning to make a Nordic inspired mitten for quite a while now!

In order to make the mittens you will need to be able to change colors constantly and to work with two yarns at the same time! If you're a new to this technique this pattern will provide excellent practice to move on to the next step ( working with multiple strands together; see Mr. Fox Mitts or my Owl Mitts).

I used a 3.5 mm (U.S. E/4) and soft wool (Drops Karisma is the yarn used in the sample). The color choices are endless; don't be afraid to mix things up!:) 
You can find the pattern for the Nordic Mitts on EtsyRavelry and Craftsy.

If you decide to make your own don't hesitate to post a photo on Twitter Facebook or Instagram. I'd love to see!
Enjoy the rest of your day!
