Another pineapple market bag

This pineapple market bag is very popular. It is not only interesting and beautiful, but also handy for up coming summer. Finally I found a little time to make one for myself.

There are pictures to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern for this market bag.
I have added charts as well. It may even be helpful with learning to read the charts.

I have to admit adding the lining is a bit tricky. But a little patience and extra effort can turn your market bag into “regular shoulder bag”.

Long Pineapple Coat/Duster – full written pattern

I found pictures of this jacket or duster and I fell in love with it. I was searching for the pattern since around Christmas time and I had to give up. I couldn’t find one.

I didn’t have any other choice so I made my own pattern. I only had four pictures from Pinterest that I could work with. It took me over a month of trying, crocheting and unraveling and crocheting again. It is not an exact copy of the jacket on the picture, because I couldn’t see all of it on the photos, but I think I got very close. What do you think?

I used anti-pilling baby acrylic yarn, but I think you can use any yarn you like for this project.

Since the shape of the coat is meant to be loose, so t fits most sizes. You can vary the size of your coat by using different types of material and size of hooks.

I’m confident the written pattern is suitable for a dedicated beginner as well.
There are many pictures to help guide you through the crocheting, and supporting the written pattern for this coat/duster.

I am providing the pattern for this very hippie-chic pineapple coat/duster for symbolic price only, and you can find it here:

Beaded bracelet – free tutorial

I found a video tutorial for a “ beaded crochet chain” and my little daughter asked, if I could make bracelet like that for her and her friend.
I found that the tutorial was very understandable and easy to follow. It is in English, but I didn’t even turn the volume up and I could still understand how it was made. I think you can use any yarn you like and you need just a few meters. I used some leftover Christmas sparkly, stretchy acrylic yarn for example.
I have got a feeling I will have to make more of them, once my daughter will take it to school.
I think it looks very pretty and romantic.
