"Queen of spades" cropped cardigan in Tunisian Crochet

THE MAKING OF A LOVELY CARDIGAN IN TUNISIAN CROCHET In the last little while, as you may have noticed, I have been working on an ambitious project: the creation of a Tunisian crochet garment, using a leaf motif (or "spades", as I preferred to call it) already seen in some wonderful knitting projects.

Crochet Bauhaus project

Back in October this year I was contacted by a customer who asked me for an incredibly exciting but challenging made-to-order project, i.e. the reproduction with crochet of an antique woven carpet by Bauhaus artist Benita Koch-Otte.

The customer received it and was very happy with it. :) Here's the end result (hope I will have better pictures to show soon!).
