Creativity is daydreaming the reality away!  


 In my blogs I will focus on how to use crochet to create stuff that will make life easier or prettier... Read up as you might find some of them useful as well. Some designs will be for free and some designs will have a price... It all depends on the effort it went into making/researching/designing it.

Please check the list of the blog entries as the titles of each entry will more or less hint what it is about...

Sign up for a NEWSLETTER as among regular updates, there will be seasonal creations that you will want to check out so you can have the best ideas made into best stuff by you! Subscription available on Home.



Watermelon -FREE C2C Crochet Pattern

CAL Watermelon foto.jpg
Watermelon FREE C2C Chart Pattern


If used as a standalone pattern it can be made into a pillow, tote bag, table runner or anything you want. All you have to do is either make 2 or more same squares or make a square in same size to be the background of the pillow or tote bag.
The stitch includes half double crochet (in US terms), chains, and slip stitches.
For Community Garden CAL I used hdc but you can also use dc. The size by hdc will be about 16’’ square if the gauge I had with the yarn I used is achieved with same or any other yarn. With dc stich it will be even bigger (by my guess about 21-22 inches).

Yarn- Any yarn #4 weight in 5 colors (white, red, black, light green, dark green). Look below in the introduction for guidance on what yardage is needed. I used Drops Paris, 100% cotton, Aran (8wpi) for 5mm hook (US 8), 50g=75m (82 yards)
Gauge- 6.5 blocks x 6.5 blocks=4×4” (10×10 cm) if hdc stitches were used. End size of the square is 41×41 cm.
Hook- 5mm
Needle for weaving in the ends
