5 Crochet Bikini | 5 Costume de baie crosetate

RO: În ultimii ani au devenit extrem de populare costumele de baie croșetate. Fie că vorbim de costume din 2 piese sau articole dintr-o bucată, cu modele interesante, costumele de baie croșetate sunt accesoriile pe care ori le iubești, ori le detești.

Lucrate din fire care nu-și modifică flexibilitatea în apă – adică stau locului și nu dezgolesc trupul mai mult decât îți dorești -, costumele de baie croșetate au avantajul că pot fi personalizate după fiecare tip de trup.

Iată 5 modele de costume de baie croșetate pe care le poți încerca, dacă te-ai hotărât să le dai o șansă.

1. Costum de baie croșetat din 2 bucăți – modelul Tahiti de la Drops

Drops recomandă firul Safran, un fir de bumbac nemercerizat și moale. E un fir moale, plăcut la atingere, iar la contactul cu apa nu devine extrem de rigid pentru a irita, ci-și păstrează finețea. Din firul de bumbac Safran am lucrat o pătură croșetată cu flori și câteva jucării.

Partea frumoasă la acest model de costum de baie croșetat e că poți adapta foarte ușor tipul de sutien. Poți face cupa mai mică sau mai mare, în funcție de preferințe.

Modelul e disponibil gratuit pe siteul Garnstudio.com

2. Bikini Top croșetat Lolita – model video pe YouTube

Și-n acest caz recomand un fir de bumbac, combinat cu un fir acrylic pentru a obține un proiect flexibil. Iar dacă Lolita nu-ți e pe plac, poate-ți place modelul Afrodita?

3. Costum de baie din pătrate, model gratuit

Un model vizual, fără un tutorial scris. Însă articolul conține schema care stă la baza modelului. Recomand și pentru acest costum de baie croșetat un fir de bumbac, poți încerca să-l lucrezi cu fir de bumbac românesc de la Romanofir, precum Flavia.

4. Probabil cel mai simplu costum de baie croșetat din 2 piese

Lucrat tot din bumbac – dacă nu ești sigură, aruncă o privire peste proiectele de pe Ravelry să-ți faci o idee cam ce fir ai putea folosi. Modelul a fost așternut pe hârtie de către Fashion Martina.

5. Costum de baie dantelat, o singură piesă, tutorial video

Un tutorial video, în portugheză, dar ușor de urmărit dacă preferi tutorialele video. Dacă preferi varianta scrisă, e disponibilă, dar doar în portugheză.

EN: For the past 5 years (maybe more), I’ve noticed an increased popularity in crochet bikini. Two piece bikini or just one piece bikini bathing suit, with interesting patterns, you either love these or loathe them.

In order for a bikini to be beach friendly it must be made using cotton yarn. Or a special microfiber that doesn’t stretch when its wet and it doesn’t fall down when you’re in the pool / sea. The main advantage of a crochet bikini? You can personalize it however you like it. And make the top and the bottom different sizes if that’s your body style. Basically, with a crochet bikini you can highlight the features of your body in your own way.

Here are 5 crochet bathing suits you can try, once you decided you want to try a crochet bikini.

1. Two piece bikini – Tahiti from Drops

The yarn company recommends Safran, a semi mercerized cotton yarn, soft and nice to touch. It’s a great yarn, I love that it feels very soft when I was working it and it doesn’t become too stiff when wet. I’ve made the Meadow Blanket and a few amigurumi using Safran. The beauty of this pattern is that you can always improvise the top, to make it bigger or smaller, depending on your bosom.

2. Crochet Bikini Top Lolita – video pattern on YouTube

For this I recommend a cotton yarn, perhaps a blend with acrylic or bamboo. This way you can crochet a flexible and soft bikini top. And if Lolita is not really your style, you can always use the Afrodita pattern.

3. Crochet bikini made using squares, free pattern

This is more of a visual pattern, there is a graph on the page, but no detailed step-by-step instructions. I recommend using cotton thread for this, something like Cotton Perle or Flavia from Romanofir or Aunt Lydia’s cotton yarn.

4. The easiest 2 piece crochet bikini

Made of cotton, of course. If you’re ever not sure of what type of yarn to use on your project, take a look at the other projects on Ravelry, it helps. This crochet bathing suit pattern was created by Fashion Martina.

5. Full body, one piece bikini – video tutorial

The pattern is in Portuguese, but you can follow it even if you don’t speak the language. Just watch her hands and count the number of stitches. If it helps, the written pattern is here.

Knitted Dress – ASH | Rochie Tricotată – ASH

RO: Ador rochiile tricotate simple sau lucrate cu modele complexe. Îmi plac rochiile tricotate pentru că sunt ușor de asortat și se mulează frumos pe trup. În plus, în timpul verii sunt perfecte – permit corpului să transpire și să se aerisească. Dacă e ceva ce nu pot suporta la o rochie în general e senzația de sufocare care apare după ce transpir, iar materialul nu permite circulația aerului.

Acum că v-am povestit motivele mele pentru a tricota rochii, îmi permiteți să mă laud cu munca mea? Rochia tricotată, pentru a marca aniversarea celor 32 de veri la care am asistat până acum, se numește ASH și modelul a fost creat de către Allison Hendrix. Sigur că inițial am fost atrasă de ideea unei rochii cu spatele căzut, dar apoi m-am răzgândit rapid. Voiam o rochie pe care să o pot purta oricând, la birou, în oraș, iar o rochie cu spatele jos nu se pretează într-un birou.

Așa că am adoptat modelul cu spatele ridicat. Și nu-mi pare rău pentru vreo secundă, consider că a fost alegerea potrivită pentru mine.

Pentru această rochie tricotată am folosit andrele KnitPro Carbon de 3,25 mm și fir Scheepjes Whirl. Lavenderlicious cred că se numește culoarea. Firul e nemaipomenit pentru astfel de proiecte, întrucât e o combinație de 57% bumbac, 38% acrylic și 5% Lurex – ceea ce înseamnă că firul are ținută – datorită bumbacului – și e flexibil – datorită acrilicului. Am folosit un ghem întreg, adică 220 gr. Sunt o persoană mică și slăbuță, pentru un model mai mare veți avea nevoie de mai mult fir.

Am purtat rochia de câteva ori și pot spune că e perfectă pentru primăvară-vară-toamnă. O port cu un furou, întrucât e ușor transparentă la lumina zilei în partea de jos. Permite aerisirea trupului, se așează frumos și nu incomodează.

Ce am învățat nou cu acest proiect de rochie tricotată? Cum se lucrează metoda „contiguous set-in-sleeve” – care s-ar traduce prin lucrarea separată a umerilor și apoi unirea lor în zona pieptului. Tutorialul pentru această technică a fost creat de către Susie Myers și e gratuit pe Ravelry. E o metodă interesantă și ușor de lucrat, pe care sigur o voi aplica în proiecte viitoare.

Cum vă place rochia tricotată ASH?

EN: I love knitted dresses, simple or with complex cable patterns. I love to wear a knitted dress because it’s easy to wear it and it compliments my body style. During summer time a knit dress will allow my body to cool down and dry off when temperatures are too high. If it’s one thing I hate about dresses in general is the feeling of suffocating when it’s hot outside and the dress does not allow for ventilation, keeping the humidity inside and now allowing the body to dry off. Which is why I really love wearing knitted dresses during summer time. 

Now that I’ve mentioned my reasons to knit and wear dresses, can I brag about my latest project? I’ve knitted this dress to mark my 32nd birthday. The dress is called ASH and was created by Allison Hendrix. Of course when I first saw this pattern, I was fascinated with the low back shape, but then I changed my mind and made a high back dress. That’s because I want a knitted dress that I can wear anywhere and anytime. And a low back dress is not really office appropriate.

So I decided I will knit the high back dress and I’m not sorry for making this choice, I still think it was the best option for me.

For this knitted dress I used KnitPro Carbon needles – 3,25 mm and Scheepjes Whirl yarn. I believe the color is called Lavenderlicious. This yarn is perfect for a dress because it’s 5% Lurex, 57% Cotton, 38% Acrylic. So this yarn has a good drape – due to the cotton – and is also very flexible – due to the acrylic.

I’ve worn this dress a few times now and I can honestly say it’s perfect for spring, summer and warm autumn. I usually wear it with a full slip – because the lower part can be a bit transparent in daylight. This dress is perfect for me because it allows my body to cool down during hot summer days and it compliments my body.

What new technique I’ve learned through this project? I’ve learned the `contiguous set in sleeve` which is an amazing techniques and very useful for future projects. If you want to learn the technique, please visit Susie Myers’s tutorial, free on Ravelry.

How do you like my knitted dress ASH?

bluza tricotata tehnica RSC

Knitting: How to knit RSC | Tricotat: Cum să lucrezi RSC

RO: Să fie vreun an de când am tricotat bluza Taylor, după un model creat de Novel Reed. Am folosit fir de lână combinat cu poliamidă (așa numitul fir pentru șosete, „sock yarn”). Am folosit andrele de 4 mm și în jur de 220 gr.

Cu fiecare proiect învăț ceva nou, ceva ce mă ajută să-mi îmbunătățesc cunoștințele în materie de tricotat și fire. Ei bine, la bluza Taylor am învățat cum se lucrează tehnica RSC – Right Slanting Cross (ar fi echivalentul „Înclinare spre Dreapta„) și LSC – Left Slanting Cross („Înclinare spre Stânga”).

Ce presupune tehnica de tricotat RSC? Înseamnă că acolo unde apare în tutorial, se trec 2 ochiuri pe un ac de rezervă și se țin în spatele lucrului, se tricotează 1 ochi pe dos și apoi se aduc cele 2 ochiuri în față, se pun înapoi pe andreaua stângă și se lucrează normal pe față.

Uite un video cum am lucrat eu această tehnică:

Ce presupune tehnica de tricotat LSC? Înseamnă că 1 ochi se trece pe un ac de rezervă, se ține în fața lucrului, se lucrează 2 ochiuri pe față, apoi se pune înapoi pe andreaua stângă ochiul ținut deoparte și se tricotează pe față.

Rezultatul e un model interesant, unde ochiurile tricotate par trase unele peste altele, încrucișate.

bluza tricotata tehnica RSC

Și dacă tot am pomenit de bluza Taylor, modelul e foarte ușor de lucrat. Dar pentru că rareori pot urma un tutorial cap-coadă fără a improviza pe ici pe colo, nici aici n-am avut răbdare să urmez toți pașii. Așa că am improvizat finalul bluzei și mânecile.

Modificările mele pentru modelul Taylor:

Tutorialul lui Novel Reed prevedea înmulțiri în zona bustului, imediat după terminarea modelului cu RSC și LSC, pentru a avantaja femeile cu un bust generos. Am sărit cu grație peste această parte, nu e cazul. Pentru partea de jos a bluzei am ales să schimb cu alt fir, un merino turcoaz pentru o doză de contrast. Și am lucrat vreo 5 rânduri în tehnica herringbone, apoi am închis. Tehnica herringbone circular strânge bluza la bază, ceea ce înseamnă că o pot purta frumos peste fuste, ascunzând șoldurile.

În privința mânecilor, și pe acestea le-am lucrat circular, cu andrele scurte de 3 mm. La final am schimbat firul cu merino turcoaz, repetând tehnica herringbone circular și aici. Din păcate, modelul nu mai e disponibil pe Ravelry.

****************

EN: It must be more than a year since I finished knitting my Taylor blouse, after a pattern by Novel Reed. A wonderful designer, I have a few of her patterns and I love her work. For this knitted blouse, I used sock yarn, no brand – I bought it in bulk of Facebook. I used 4 mm needles and about 220 gr. of yarn.

With each knitting (and crochet) project I learn something new, something that helps me understand the fiber world. While I was knitting the Taylor blouse I learned about knitting RSC and LSC techniques.

What is RSC knitting, you ask?

Basically RSC = Right Slanting Cross and LSC = Left Slanting Cross. Easy, right? Yes, it is.

How to knit RSC?

For RSC you slip the first 2 stitches on a needle and hold those 2 stitches in the back of your work, then work P1 and bring those 2 stitches back on your working needle and work those 2 stitches by knitting them.

How to knit LSC?

This is even easier. You slip the first stitch on a needle and hold that needle in front of your work, then work k2 and put back the 1 stitch that was on hold and work it by knitting it.
Told you it’s easy!

Taylor blouse by Novel Reed is a wonderful pattern, I’m sorry it’s no longer available on Ravelry. Although I enjoyed making it, I am a restless soul. Which translates into: I cannot follow a pattern from top to bottom. I have to have a few alterations, to leave my mark on the project.

Here’s how I altered the Taylor blouse:

First, I skipped the increasing in the bust area. I have a small chest, those increasings were not necessary for me. Secondly, I switched to turquoise merino for the bottom of the blouse and worked 5 rows of herringbone stitch in the round and then cast off. Because of this stitch, the bottom is tight and I can hide my hips behind this top. Yay!

For the sleeves, I used a 3 mm short circular needle and finished them off with turquoise merino using herringbone stitch, this way the sleeves do not roll. I love this stitch!

Have you ever tried this pattern?

crochet shawl lost in time

Crochet – Lost in Time shawl

I have a good crochet & knitting friend, Cati, who’s very talented and crafty (you may have seen some of her work on the blog). This past winter Cati has been crocheting a few shawls, but she fell in love with Lost in Time shawl, created by Johanna Lindahl. It’s a free pattern on Ravelry.

Last fall we both bought a few cakes of Scheepjes Whirl yarn, we both love how this yarn change colors so subtle and we were curious to see how this yarn feels like. This gradient yarn it’s not particularly cheap – about 21 pounds per 220 gr., but its worth every cent!

Because this particular yarn is not available in Romanian yarn stores, we bought it from WoolWarehouse.co.uk – I highly recommend this online store for yarn and needles as the prices are fair and there are so many brands to choose from. And from time to time, the sales campaigns are really good.

Anyway, as I said, my friend, Cati fell in love with the Lost in Time shawl, so as soon as we got the yarn, she made a shawl. And then another one. And another one. I think she made about 4 or 5 shawls using this pattern and various brands of yarn.

And because I’m a curious person, I’ve also started a Lost in Time shawl, using various skeins of yarn I have in my stash, hoping to downsize it. While mine is still a work in progress, Cati’s work is finished and looks amazing!

Here’s her Lost in Time shawl using Scheepjes Whirl yarn. It’s the softest shawl every, perhaps because it’s a blend of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic.

Have you ever made a Lost in Time Shawl? Or have you used Scheepjes Whirl yarn? Would love to read about your experiences with this yarn and/or this crochet pattern. Leave us a comment in the section below 🙂

Amigurumi: Sleepy dog

Amigurumis are a child’s best friend, say mothers who asked me to make toys for their babies. If that’s the case, I wish I could make crochet toys all day, every day! Because there’s nothing I like more than working with colorful yarn to make the cutest toys for kids.

Here’s one of my latest crochet project, a sleepy dog. As usual with my toys, I used cotton yarn and hypoallergenic fiber to stuff it. My inspiration for this toy was Zefirka Room from Instagram, but because I love to improvise when I make toys, I did not follow a pattern. I did not even write it down.

But should you want to make a similar toy, you can find a free pattern here.

While I was making this toy I was also listening to The Outsider, the latest book from Stephen King. And let me tell you, one needs a colorful project when listening to this kind of book.

How much I enjoyed the project? 5 stars out of 5.

How much I loved the yarn? 5 stars out of 5.

Overall: 4,5 sars project!

#Bunnyalong18 – How to crochet a bunny | Free Pattern

I’ve finished this bunny almost a week ago, but it’s quite hard to find a few hours to edit the photos and publish it online. Between work and … well more work, I don’t have much time left for anything else. Hopefully, this is just a temporary setback and in a few months, I’ll be able to finish all those projects that are waiting for me in the WIP corner of the room.

If you’re looking for a relaxing project, that’s super fast and has the cute factor in it, here’s a free pattern for a crochet bunny. In a few hours, you’ll finish this and you’ll gain more confidence in your crafting skills.

You’ll need the 3 mm crochet hook, DK yarn (even sport 2 is ok, or whatever scrap yarn you have left in your stash), a pair of doll eyes (or improvise and make them out of yarn), a pom-pom maker (or a piece of cardboard with a hole in the middle), sewing needle, scissors.

The bunny is worked in the round, make sure you have a marker or a piece of contrasting color to know where the row starts and ends.

What do you need to crochet a bunny?

  1. Crochet hook – 3 mm
  2. DK yarn – Red Heart Detroit / even Sport 2 yarn is ok
  3. a pair of scissors
  4. a contrasting color thread / a stitch marker
  5. a pom-pom maker
  6. needle to weave in ends and sew parts

#bunnyalong 2018 – Spread the joy!

I love bunnies. I love making amigurumi bunnies and wearing bunny inspired crochet slippers. When I was a kid I was a huge, huge fan of Bugs Bunny, which probably explains why I love rabbits so much.

Because Easter is a few weeks away, I thought the best and easiest way to bring joy to my world is through good deeds and … bunnies.

So last night I started working on a very, very easy bunny pattern which I’m going to share with you in a few days. You can make these bunnies yourself and spread the joy in your own world.

But there are so many incredible and easy patterns for crochet rabbits out there. Two years ago I made these furries following a pattern by Joanne Jordan – free on Ravelry.

Why join the #bunnyalong18? Because it’s fun! And a little fun never hurt anyone. And it’s a wonderful opportunity to bring more joy to the people you love.

Will be back with my 2 new bunnies, stay tuned!

Crochet Slippers: Fox

I love to crochet slippers! It’s such an easy and mindless project to make and, without a doubt, a great gift to make for a friend. Especially during winter time, when no matter how warm is inside, it always feels better to have a comfy pair of socks or slippers. I made this pair while listening to Priestdaddy, by Patricia Lockwood, which was an interesting journey through the life of a US Catholic family. So many differences between the Romanian culture and the US Catholic culture.

I made my very first pair of fox crochet slippers about 3 or 4 years ago. And with each new pair, I made progress. I made so many pairs in the last few years, that I could very well have written a pattern about making these slippers. Continue reading

Knitted Cardigan: Caramel

Last year, in October I started working on this knitted cardigan. I believe I’m not the only one who’s wandering through Ravelry, looking for a new pattern to work on, when the library is full of projects waiting to be cast on. Well, I was like that until I remembered I really, really liked this Caramel cardigan, by Isabell Kraemer.

<rant>I have a thing for asymmetrical cardigans, I find them comfy and warm and suitable for skirts, dresses and jeans. And if there’s anything I love about clothing is the comfy factor. I don’t care if I don’t have the hottest piece of the year in fashion, I want my clothes to make me feel good when I’m wearing them. </rant over> :)))

And so begins my Caramel journey. For this project I used Katia Merino Effect, shade 605 and Katia Merino 100%, purple (thanks to a lovely lady who sent me this yarn all the way from Frankfurt!). Used the 3,25 mm carbon needles from Knit Pro. At one point the project grew so much and I was afraid the weigh of the yarn might break these needles or the cable, but these needles are strong.

Because I did not have enough yarn to finish the sleeves, I used some purple merino I had from my stash, the same thickness as Katia yarn. And made the sleeves only three quarters, I don’t want full sleeves for this cardigan, as I want to wear it when it’s warmer outside.

I followed the pattern to the letter for the body part, but improvised the sleeves. I used 3 mm short circular to work the sleeves, did not cast on more stitches. Worked in the round for 41 rows then started the last 42 rows of rib – K1, P1. And cast off.

Before I washed the cardigan (in the bad lit pictures below), the back was perfect, it suited me perfectly. But after washing, the merino stretched. And not where I wanted it to – length – but in the shoulders. Basically, the back was so huge, it would fall off my skinny shoulders.

So I put it in the washing machine, used the wool program and washed it. After it was all dry, I took a 3,5 mm crochet hook and made a row of slip stitches on the last row of the ribbing edge, then made another row of slip stitch on the first row of the project, the first row of the ribbing edge. And this way, the back stays put, not stretching too much.

You’ll see in the last picture, the one where I’m wearing the knitted cardigan, the subtle rows of slip stitches. The real color of the cardigan is the one in the „selfie”, the other pictures were made in my room, lit only by an energy saving light bulb, which does not show the true pretty color of the cardigan.

How much I enjoyed the pattern? 5 starts out of 5.

How much I loved the yarn? 5 starts out of 5.

Overall: 5 stars project!

Squiggle Wiggle What?! Shawl – Șal Tricotat

RO: Parcă a trecut o veșnicie de cât n-am mai scris pe blog despre proiectele mele și despre ce mai puteți lucra în zilele când inspirația e sublimă, dar lipsește cu desăvârșire.

Anul trecut îmi promisesem să scriu cât mai mult despre proiecte, dar nu mi-a ieșit din diverse motive obiective și-mi pare tare rău. Așa că nu-mi mai promit nimic, sper doar să reușesc să descriu cât mai în detaliu toate provocările prin care trec în ceea ce privește tricotatul. Ha, cine-ar fi zis că o activitate atât de relaxantă poate avea provocări, așa-i? Nu e ca și cum ar fi fizică cuantică, dar matematica e foarte importantă chiar și-n joaca asta cu andrele.

Bun, azi vă povestesc despre eșarfa Squiggle Wiggle What?! de Stephen West. A fost primul model de la Stephen West pe care l-am încercat, mi-a făcut cu ochiul pentru că nu conține tehnica brioche, o tehnică ce m-a frustrat aproape un an (pe care, între timp, am învățat-o). Eșarfa aceasta am început-o în vara lui 2017, cu câteva zile înainte de ziua mea. Mi-a plăcut nespus de mult să lucrez modelul, l-am plimbat cu mine-n Berlin, la festivalul de fire, l-am plimbat prin Budapesta și l-am lucrat prin gări, trenuri și parcuri curate.

Am început proiectul cu gândul de a folosi fire diverse din stocul fără fund, un fel de „scrap project”, combinând acril, lână, mohair și lână cu mohair. Firul colorat e un degrade sock yarn, Plymouth Yarn neon. Se comportă foarte bine la spălat, iar eșarfa e preferata mea. Deși modelul presupunea lucrarea a 13 secțiuni, eu m-am oprit după a 8-a secțiune pentru că și așa eșarfa e luuungă. Și fiind o ființă mică, nu avea sens să-mi lucrez o eșarfă până la genunchi.

Rezultatul e minunat, ador să port eșarfa aceasta. O spăl manual, în apă călduță folosind Perwoll pentru lână. Nu e musai, se poate spăla și la mașină.

Sunt curioasă dacă voi ați încercat un model similar?

*********************

EN: It feels like it’s been ages since I last wrote on the blog, not because I lack the subject, but because I lacked time to do so. Last year I promised myself I would write about each and every project I worked on, but for various reasons, I failed to do so. And I’m sorry. So this year I will make no more promises to myself, I will just go with the flow, try to take each day as it is. And write when I feel like the challenges of knitting and crocheting are helping someone other than myself – Ha, I bet that if someone who’s not into knitting reading this might wonder `knitting is challenging?! it’s not rocket science, after all`. And that’s true, knitting it’s not rocket science, but it has its challenges and uses math quite a lot.

So today I’ll write a bit about one of my all time favorite projects. The Squiggle Wiggle What?! shawl by Stephen West. It’s my first pattern from Stephen West and I chose it specifically because it’s not brioche. I had a hard time last year trying to understand how to knit the brioche stitch – especially hard time because I’m a continental knitter, it’s not easy to understand the stitch when watching British knitting videos. But I did learn that stitch eventually, at the beginning of this year. So yey!

Anyway, I really liked working on this project, I used various yarns I had in my stash, hoping somehow to make my stash smaller. But I’m not there yet. I used acrylic, wool, wool with mohair and sock yarn – the colorful one is the sock yarn, Plymouth neon. It’s a wonderful combination, for myself at least. I love the scarf and I try my best not to wear it quite all the time.

The only change I made was not working the whole 13 sections, I stopped after the 8th section. It’s a long scarf, I’m a small girl, I want a scarf I can wear and doesn’t reach my knees.

I usually wash this scarf every couple of weeks, by hand in warm water and Perwoll. Of course I could throw it in the machine, but I love it too much.

Have you ever tried a similar project?
