Crochet, A new hobby

9:56 PM


I love my art and craft. Though they seldom make appearnce in this space but my whole house is full of them. The cushion covers on my Divan, The curtains on the windows or the paintings and sketches on the walls are all handmade. I always need to keep on doing something or the other for being alive and inspired.

But last year when we moved to japan that's something that I missed most. Not like there were any dearth of inspirations but everything that I found there were pretty expensive. Especially the fabric with which I mostly work. Then on one fine day I discovered Japanese Crochet on the net. I have seen beautiful crocheted materials in my life as my Maternal aunt (Masimoni) is a seasoned crocheter but Japanese Crochet is exquisite in design and finesse. and the best part is the materials were not very costly too. with the 100 yen store Daiso on my next door mall I was inspired to try my hand in this.

Searched on google and found some really helpful videos on youtube and my journey with colourful yarns and hooks started. Its very easy once you know certain basic stitches. Today am a happy and enthusiastic crocheter looking for new ideas, designs and projects. 

Here are a few sample of my work so far. Please leave your valuable comments.
My very first project, a scarf for my son. He calls it his paw-paw muffler.



given a chance I will always crochet pretty flowers and leaves. Here is another scarf for my little niece.


Another scarf for an angelic sweet kid Kuttus. a bear scarf. Found the picture on net without any pattern, so worked my own. and am pretty pleased with the outcome :-)

A Tunisian Crochet cap for my husband. Its very very warm and helped him survive the chilling weather of Tokyo. pattern from Ravelry.com

Saw these in a shop and found it very expensive. Bought some cotton thread and worked my own pattern. The prettiest work I have done till date.

And this is how it looks over my son's bed. Love how the sun light twinkles on  the beads.

A small coaster to use up the left over stash. Pattern crochetgeek on youtube.

Mandala. Another great project to finish your leftover yarns. Pattern Here


An Unfinished Granny square Blanket in making. Will share the whole thing once done.

Other food bloggers who do crochet in their free times are AnjaliNupur, Kamalika and Sharmila. A Crochet blog that inspires me a lot is Sangeetha's Crochetkari. Please share your link of works if you share the same passion for crochet.

  9. Needlework, crochet and tatting(in that order) was my passion till the cooking/baking bug bit me so hard that I stored all my hooks and needles away. So want to start all that again. Loved your creations.
