Pineapple Cardholder Pattern


Recently I made a bunny cardholder for my public transport card. My sister saw this one and said 'O it's so cute, can you also make a pineapple?' So that's how this idea were established.

I tried to find a stitch which represent the texture of the bottom of the pineapple. This is called the 'berry stitch' in my crochet book. However I couldn't find a great example at the internet of this stitch. But I'll write the instructions down!

Materials:
Phildar yellow and green
Crochet needle: 2,5mm

Pattern:

The YELLOW part. 

Start with a chain 39.
R1: 4dc in the sixth ch from the hook, skip the next 2chs, dc in the next ch, *skip the next 2 chs, 4dc in the next ch, skip the next 2 chs, dx in the next ch* repeat between the * until the end.

You're facing the right side of your work now. You could mark this with a short piece of yarn to remember.

In the next row we're going to work with BPdc (back post double crochet). If you're not familiar with this stitch, find out the instructions here.

R2: Ch3 (counts as dc) and turn. 2 dc in the first dc, skip the next dc, and work the BPdc in the next dc, * skip the next dc, 4 dc in the next dc, skip the next dc and work a BPdc* repeat until the last 2 dc, skip the next dc, 3 dc in the last dc.


In the next row we're going to work with FPdc (frontpost double crochet). If you're not familiar with this stitch, find out the instructions here.

R3: Ch3 (counts as dc) and turn. Skip the next 2 dc, 4 dc in the next BPdc, * skip the next dc, work a FPdc, skip the next dc, 4 dc in the next BPdc* repeat until the last 3 dc, skip the next 2 dc, and dc in the last dc.

R4: Ch3 (counts as dc) and turn. 2 dc in the first dc, skip the next dc, work a BPdc, * skip the next dc, 4 dc in the next FPdc, skip the next dc, work a BPdc * repeat until the last 2 dc, skip the next dc, 3 dc in the last dc.

Repeat the row 3 and 4 until you have 13 rows.
Fold the yellow piece of fabric and sew together.


The GREEN part:

- dc in the central stitch of the back part of your cardholder. chain 10, sc in the second ch from the hook, hdc in the next 2 chs, dc in the last six chs.
- dc in the same central stitch. Chain 12, sc in the second ch from the hook, hdc in the next 2 chs, dc in the last 8 chs.
- dc in the same central stitch. Chain 12, sc in the second ch from the hook, hdc in the next 2 chs, dc in the last 8 chs.
- dc in the central stitch of the back part of your cardholder. chain 10, sc in the second ch from the hook, hdc in the next 2 chs, dc in the last six chs.

Finish off.

Hobbes for a newborn!



Aww... isn't it cute?

A few weeks ago, a mommy to be sent me an email. She saw Hobbes I made before at my site and she's expecting a little 'Clavin' this June. The theme of the nursery is 'Calvin and Hobbes', so a Hobbes would really complete this room. I feel honored to make this Hobbes specially for them! 

I really loved to make this and I'm really thrilled about the result!


Do you want to make such a lovely Hobbes as well? check out this site!

Love,

Rabbit Cardholder


I regularly go to work by public transport. In the Netherlands, you need a special card to be allowed to use public transport. I need my card often quickly, so that's why I store it in my pockets instead of my wallet. I know, pockets are not the safest place to store your card, because the chance it will damage or break is quite high. This card holder will from now on protect my card... and isn't it a cutie?

Pattern is available at amuuse

Happy Poo Emoticon


You know that kind of people who often make use of the poo emoticon in the Whats-app conversations? It's kind of a buzzer word, doesn't really make sense or add something to the conversation. It's kind of noise, but than funny. Because everytime I see it, I start to laugh. Specially for this dear friend, I couldn't resist it, I made this emoticon!
I used this pattern and added the specific 'face' of the emoticon by using felt.

Have a nice day!

Don't mess with Nerdy Dirk

Recently one of my friends pointed me to the Lalylala patterns. These are awesome!! Many many people make their own version based on the Lalylala patterns. I just kept it to one of the original Lalylala's Dragon Dirk pattern. It was really fun to make, but also a lot of work. It was a nice project for the dark winter days. Now spring is coming, so it was time to finish this cutie!


I added the glasses to give Dirk a more nerdy look. For the glasses I used two paper clips and attached them by using some decorative washi tape.


Credits: Lalylala
Pattern: Dirk the dragon

Have a nice weekend!
