Easy waves scarf




This scarf has interesting and unique design. It uses only basic stitches in a combination of shells and clusters to make the wave effect. The scarf is made of very soft yarn - combination of wool, acrylic and bamboo which makes it preferred choice to wear in winter or cold days.

I also made a matching hat if you want to make a complete soft winter set.

Mini owl applique




Owls are fun and adorable. They are nice addition to any hats, bags, garments or even keyrings. They are fast to make and can use any scrap yarn.

This crocheted owl measures just 3 cm/1.25 in and is made with 3mm crochet hook.
