My sister saw the ugly bunny I made for a friend and asked me to make her one as well, that's what I hooked for her:


Can't wait to give her that little ugly doll, I hope she likes it!

Crochet Flower No. 2

After this blog post I'm going to be MIA for a little while. I'm going on a business trip to Saskatoon next week and therefore will have some really busy days and no time for blogging. So far I'm not 100% looking forward to it as the time difference between Saskatoon and Germany is 8 hours - I am so going to have the jetlag of my life when coming back home! At least, I'll make it back home just in time for Mother's Day :) So before I'm heading Canada-bound, I would like to share another crochet flower with you...

I found the pattern for this crochet flower over at Sarah London's Flickr Stream and of course I had to try it out :)

Round 1: 3 CH, 14 DC into Ring, join with SL in 3rd CH (15)
Round 2: 3 CH, 1 DC in same CH, 2 DC in each DC of the first round, join with SL in 3rd CH (30)
Round 3: 3 CH, 1 DC in same CH, 1 CH, 2 DC in same CH, *skip two DC, 2 DC in next DC, 1 CH, 2 DC in same DC * repeate 8 times, joing with SL in 3rd CH (10 groups), break yarn
Round 4: Attach yarn around CH of one of the 10 groups, 3 CH, 2 DC around same CH, 2 CH, 3 DC around same CH, * 3 DC around CH of the next group, 2 CH, 3 DC around same CH * repeate 8 times, join with SL in 3rd CH (10 groups)
Round 5: 8 DC around CH of the first group, SC between the DC of the 4th round, * 8 DC around CH of the next group, 1 SC between DC of the 4th round * repeate 8 times, join with SL into first DC (10 groups)

SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet

Enjoy hooking!

Crochet Flower

First of all a huge WELCOME to all my new followers :) I hope, you'll enjoy following my blog!

I'm currently working on some smaller projects. While browsing the internet a couple of weeks ago I found a picture of a really great crochet flower. Unfortunately, no pattern was available. Therefore, I improvised. But I think my result is quite cute :) It would make a wonderful sunflower with the right yarn, don't you think?
