Baby, it’s cold outside :)

It’s (almost) that time of the year, you can feel it in the air 🙂 I love the smell of winter, don’ t you?

It makes me listen to Christmas songs, light up the chimney and knit or crochet something warm. Hmmm,  that is exactly what I did 🙂 I made with all my love 2 precious gifts for two of my special boys :

Don’t you love it when it snows? 😀

I used again the basketweave stitch because I love it and it seems to fit very well for boy garments. An easy project for a special gift 🙂
This is the song that I always listen when it’s that time of  the year, hope you enjoy it 🙂


Basketweave stitch scarf and crossbody bag

At first when I tried to crochet basketweave stitch it seemed really complicated. I’m a visual learner so it’s best for me to follow a video and I learn pretty easy. God forbid for me to see the pattern written down, I get dizzy trying to figure it out 😀 After I got the hang of it I couldn’t make up my mind what to do with it, then I remembered that my husband asked me to crochet something for him and voilà: a scarf was the pretty obvious choice, so I did.

I really liked how it turned out so I thought why don’t I make something for me too? So I created this pretty simple bag. If yo want to make one for yourselves  you’ll find a lot of resources on the internet for basketweave stitch both video and written. The rest is a piece of cake, choose the width and the length of the piece, work it flat until you reach the desired size, fold it to make a flap, attach a button and a strap and embellish the flap with flowers of your choice. It’s best to put some fabric inside for sturdiness. Easy peasy, right?
