Tubular scarf aka "snood" (crochet)

I personally find knitting more interesting (for me) than crocheting, but nevertheless I do crochet sometimes. And here is one of the examples - extremely easy scarf.

It was crocheted with a 3,5 mm hook in circular rows. The first and the last rows were made in double crochet, and the rows in between them - in treble crochet. *
Simple crochet patterns have beautiful texture, so the only thing to do is to choose a colour.

Yep, I really believe - the simplier the better.

* For American English - single crochet/double crochet accordingly.

Bolero for a little princess

As, I think, most of those who knit, I knit for presents and very often those are presents for children. Here are couple of pictures of one of such works. Inspiration came from Garnstudio models.
This bolero consists of 5 parts: 2 sleeves, 2 front and 1 back pieces. It was knitted by the needles #3,5 in stockinette stitches.
It really didn't take a lot of time and pattern is extremely easy as you can see: only hearts on the left front piece. I think flowers would look good also. The edge is crocheted in contrast colour, I just thought that sharp contrasts is one of those things which distinguishes kids' clothes from adult outfits.

P.S. And I should have ironed the edge before taking pictures :)
