"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. First, I thought about replicating the spade pattern in Tunisian crochet, which was not difficult, as I have created similar patterns before - you can find them, for example, in these projects of mine: Leaf it On Shawl , Leaf it On Scarf , Leaf it On Cowl .  Leaf it On Scarf Next, I thought it best to make a garment that had a simple workmanship, i.e. worked flat, and not in the round, to avoid, at least initially, over-complicating the design.

Considering all of the above, I must say I am always happy to work on a new animal hat, when friends and customers ask me for one: I am sure they will have fun with them.


What better idea to convince our children to wear a hat against the winter colds than a funny beanie that they will love and want to wear all the time, one in which they look so adorable, too? These are the main reasons why this lovely headpiece is appreciated by moms and kids alike: no more fights mornings on the way to school! No more fear of tiny ears and necks not being properly covered! Children feel cool and happy, because they actually have a toy on their heads and they can play at being a masked hero; mothers feel safe and reassured, knowing their little ones stay warm. And let's be honest: they look sooo cute in their animal hats!

Although I didn’t create my crochet animal hats for this purpose originally, Carnival is approaching. Whether you’re in Rio, New Orleans, Venice, Köln, whether you call it Carnevale, Fasching or Mardi Gras, the most amusing holiday of the year is just around the corner. So why not add a unique quality handmade head accessory instead of an acrylic ready-to-wear mask? Here are some of my proposals to you:
