Puff.Puff: Easy Crochet Tablet Cozy


Poor tablet, running around naked in a house filled with handmade items. It wasn't fair. It deserved some pretty, especially since it was Little A.'s and Big J.'s birthday present to me. (Also, I needed an excuse to procrastine, to take my mind from the nagging work that has been taking up more time than I like and to crochet a little).
Pobre tablet, a correr pela casa nu e isto numa casa cheio de coisas feitas à mão. Não era justo. Merecia algo bonito, especialmente porque foi o presente que a Little A. e o Big J. me deram nos anos (Também precisava de uma desculpa para procrastinar, para deixar de pensar no trabalho aborrecido que me tem ocupado mais do que aquilo que gostaria e crochetar um pouco).

If you need some visual help, please see this video tutorial.

Instructions:

  • Foundation Row: Chain 48. Join with sl st to form a circle, being careful not to twist the chain.
  • Row 1: Chain 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), 1 dc in each chain - 48 stitches. Join with sl st to beginning chain 3.
  • Row 2: Chain 3, dc across the entire row. Break off yarn. 
  • Row 3: Join CC1 (complementary colour 1) on top of any dc from previous row, chain 3, dc pull through 2 loops, dc pull through 2 loops, pull through all loops, *chain 1, sk 1, 1 puff stitch on next st*, repeat from * to * for a total of 25 puff stitches. Sl st to beginning chain 3. Break off yarn. 
  • Row 4: Join CC2 and repeat row 3;
  • Row 5: Join CC3 and repeat row 4;
  • Row 6: Chain 3, dc across the entire row through the back loop only.
  • Rows 7-8: Chain 3, dc across the entire row. On the last row, break off yarn. On the last row, break off yarn.   
  • Row 9: repeat row 3;
  • Row 10: repeat row 4;
  • Row 11: repeat row 5;
  • Rows 12: Repeat row 6.
  • Rows 13-14: Chain 3, dc across the entire row. On the last row, break off yarn.

  • Row 17: repeat row 5;
  • Rows 18: Repeat row 6;
  • Row 19: Chain 3, dc across the entire row.
  • Row 20: Chain 1, sc in same stitch, sc in next 11 st, chain 10, sc in next sc, sc across. Break off yarn. Weave in ends.
  • Remember how we have a big hole in the beginning? To close this gap, the way I see it, we have two options:
    • Whipstitch the thing (not my cup of tea);
    • Turn the work so that the gap is facing up and making sure that both halves are aligned. Working from right to left, insert the crochet hook through both loops of each piece and draw up a loop. Yarn over and draw through both loops. Continue until you have 24 sc. Break off yarn. Weave in ends. Sew on button. Grab tablet. Marvel at your work. Dance a little if it pleases you.

OMG, It's Almost Christmas Fingerless Mitts - Free Crochet Pattern/Modelo Grátis de Crochet

Every year is the same. In August, I start going on and on about how I need to be knitting/crocheting for Christmas and then December comes and I do everything in a matter of days, so I need super-quick patterns. Discipline is not my forte. Yesterday, I decided to make these fingerless mitts and I think that the end result is something worth sharing. For that reason, here's the pattern. É sempre o mesmo. Em Agosto, começo a dizer que é preciso começar a trabalhar para o Natal e depois chega a Dezembro e faço tudo no espaço de alguns dias, razão pela qual preciso de modelos rápidos. A disciplina não é o meu forte. Ontem, decidi fazer estas luvas sem dedos e acho que o resultado final até merece ser partilhado. Por isso, aqui fica o modelo.

2.5 k - A Quick Granny Stripes Crochet Lapghan

After having spent an entire week trying to finish what apparently was a never-ending dress for Litte A. in *navy blue* (the horror!), I needed some instant "craftification". And nothing says fast like a Q/15mm hook and 4 strands of yarn held together, right?

The yarns had all been in my stash for quite some time, staring at me, softly whispering "Please, make something out of me" and you know you should always listen to what your yarn has to say.... Particularly the Sale Luxury Premium one, of which I ordered 16 skeins back in February only to find out that it did not live up to my expectations. "Make a lapghan out of me", it said, and the Anarchist quickly complied, using 12 skeins of the sheep-smelling fussy mess. To the mix, I added 3 skeins of Baby Multicolor and 2 skeins of Diva, all from Ice Yarns. So my stash is 2370 meters lighter! That's almost 2.5 kilometers (2700 yards, give or take)! That's a whole lotta yarn! Not bad, for such a simp…

Sock Yarn Baby Blanket - Free Knitting Pattern

Most baby blankets' patterns give me the creeps. They're heavy, frumpy, impractical and even worse is when they have a right side and a wrong side (who has time for that when you're trying to wrap up a baby in the cold?). More, baby H., my much-anticipated godson, will be born right in the middle of summer and temperatures here get quite high. So, with all this in mind, I decided I wanted something extraordinarily light, colourful and easy. And this was born: 
It only weighs 150 gr, it's light, airy but still able to keep those cold summer evenings and nights at bay! And the pattern (if we can even call it a pattern) couldn't be any simpler: you knit, knit, knit and let the yarn speak for itself. I think the most imp…
