So many of you have asked when will be our next CAL on Ravelry that I’ve decided to organize it with one of my EASIest crochet patterns!
What’s so cool about this crochet pattern?
– Not a yarn eater (the sample shown needs just one cake of very affordable acrylic/cotton)
– You can wear it on every occasion, in any SEASON, in any AGE and you will always look great in it 👌
– It’s a perfect TV-project!
Available sizes (you will have access to your size):
S-M to fit bust and hips from 90 to 102 cm (35-40’’);
L-XL-2XL to fit bust and hips from 108 to 122 cm (42-48’’);
2XL-3XL-4XL to fit bust and hips from 126 to 140 cm (49-55’’);
4XL-5XL to fit bust and hips from 144 to 160 cm (56-63’’).
Width of top is given for unstretched condition; during wearing it becomes 10-20 cm (4-8’’) wider and has 5-15 cm (2-6’’) positive ease around your hips. It is oversize 😉! Subtract the circumference of your hips from the stated width of the top to calculate the desired ease. For less ease consider choosing smaller size (or thinner yarn); for more ease choose bigger size (or use thicker yarn).
Please create a Ravelry-project with this pattern and write your size there – I’ll see it and send link to your Part 1 during first weeks of March.
Duration of CAL and your project:
We will crochet this top from March, 1st till May 1st 2020. The whole process can take 25-80 hours – it will depend on your size, length, experience, crochet speed, chosen yarn and hook. And your positive mood 😉.

This pillow cover will lend a sophisticated air of modern crochet home design and compliment any home style decor. It’s cozy and versatile and the best thing is that you will always have an original gift for all your loved ones: both men or women. 🎁
My pillow covers were made in fail-safe neutral tones that are suitable to any minimalist design style (I have already given away a few of such pillows :)). These subdued hues don’t overwhelm any given space and never fail to make an interior feel more homey.
You can crochet this project in solid energetic hues for even more visual appeal! Just go for a hue that speaks to you and it will most likely look great.
More details about this cover pattern:
► It is customizable to any square or rectangle size (you will crochet foundation row until its length equals to the measured side of your pillow; then you will crochet in the round, always in the same direction).
► The beautiful diagonals are created by double crochet stitches, post stitches and puff stitches. PHOTO TUTORIAL of these stitches, WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS for every row in English and high quality crochet CHARTS are included (see screen shots).
► You will not need to crochet gauge – just take soft yarn like 100 % merino wool, linen/rayon, linen/bamboo, linen/polyester or cotton/acrylic in one solid color and start crocheting with hook that is slightly smaller than recommended by the producer of your yarn. The samples shown were made with 8 and 10 ply (UK) = DK and Worsted-weight, 3 and 4, Light and Medium (USA) and hook 3.25 mm (hook D in USA).
It’s the most magical time of the year and I wish you a fantastic holiday season full of beautiful creations and joyful moments! And here is my little present for you – New Year’s necklace! Grab some thin yarn and treat yourself and your friends with this amazing little present.
This time I followed the same crochet photo-tutorial for the green necklace and created a new crochet necklace with 6 pearls. I’m sure there are lots of other ways to decorate this delicate necklace and hope to see your new creations soon!

Jali (jaali) and Mashrabiya are elements of traditional Indo-Islamic architecture that feature delicate organic, vegetal or geometrical ornaments carved in stone or wood.
The term Jaali is used in Central Asia – in India, Pakistan and the countries surrounding, while Mashrabia is used mostly in the Arabic world; from Iran, Iraq to Morocco and Andalusia (read more about Jaali and Mashrabia ).
In the course of the day, the movement of these patterns in silhouette across the floor enhances the pleasure of their intricate geometry. Here are a few stunning pieces of this art, so you know why I named my crochet curtains Mashrabiya 😊.
And here is my work that I gave as a present to a dearest person. 😊 I think this crochet decor gives an atmosphere of calm and serenity to this interior, makes it modern and unique, regardless of the fashion.
I invite you to crochet this beauty that will resemble a projecting window 😊

Happy crocheting, friends!
June 1st, 2019, the first day of summer …
While crocheting this garment I thought, Wait… It’s so boring to crochet alone and write all these dc, sc, ch for the thousand time, so why not to invite other crocheters? 😀 It will be so encouraging to try something new, and we will be more creative together! Besides, nobody will ask you to buy specific yarn – take the cotton or linen from your stash and start crocheting instantly. I’m sure that you will come up with a better garment than the one I have in mind. The masterpiece that you will be really proud of! 😉
Something summery: seamless and sleeveless, worked from the top down, maybe with fringe continue reading: https://conceptcreative.club/2019/06/01/summer-mystery-cal-design-your-garment/

On one hand, the completed tablecloth will give an atmosphere of calm and serenity to your interior, on the other hand, this will be a heirloom that will be passed down to your children.
