Pretty Red Crochet Hat

Making a crochet hat is so easy!
Basically all you have to do is:
1. Make a flat circle and stop when it is the size you want.
2. Keep adding rows without increasing until it reaches your ears. 
3. Start increasing again for the brim.
4. Add embellishment as you like.

3D Leaf Crochet Pouch

Hi again! This is another project that I'm rather proud of. 
I took the basic pattern from a diagram I found on pinterest. You can just search for 3D Leaf Crochet pattern and you can easily find it. After that I look for a basic oval pattern for the base, did some math, and voila! This is what I come up with.

I used some leftover yarn so I ran out, and changed to another color. 

What I like about this pattern is that it creates a solid fabric, no holes. Means I don't have to line it with another fabric. 

This is the second pouch that I made. I changed the pattern, it has more leaves and the leaves are closer together. 

I don't know if I should post a pattern based on someone else's pattern which I also don't know who it belongs to. And anyway I only wrote them down as a rough sketch. So if you also want to make these pouches, do the math. Or you can contact me for pointers.

Adding Crochet Edgings For My Daughter's Clothes

Hi again, so the other day I was looking at my daughter's leggings and I thought, wow, she outgrow her pants so fast. Then I had an idea, what if I added to the bottom of it so that it has more length, and she can wear them for longer.
Turns out what I made was not stretchy enough. I didn't think that it won't fit her calves. A lesson for next time.
Left before. Right after.

Since she won't be able to wear the leggings with the crocheted piece, I took it off and made them into sleeves instead. 
Ta dah!! I like it so much.

The pattern is a combination of two patterns I found on pinterest.

Have Been Crocheting Like Crazy Recently

Hi all, so I've recently restarted my crocheting hobby and made a lot of stuff in a short span of time. I've been sharing my work in some facebook groups but I found their rules are rather stifling. I still had some great responses though. 
Anyway I suddenly remembered that I have a blog. It is my own blog so I can write whatever I want right...
Well, I am going to slowly upload the recent projects I made, starting with this nostalgic Hair Scrunchies, as they were some of the first things I made back when I just started learning crochet.

Very easy to make. For these I just did one row of dc, join with slip stitch, ch1, (sc,ch 5) all the way around.

Online Shop

Hi people, it's been a while since a posted anything new. I've been busy with my online shops. Yup that's right, plural. There are many marketplace apps available in Indonesia and they are all free to use. Right now I have three accounts that I use, Tokopedia, Shopee, Bukalapak. Why so many do you ask? Because they all have different promotions at different times. Sometimes they give discounts, sometimes free shipping, sometimes cashback. So the customer can pick and choose which app gives them the biggest benefit. A lot of Indonesians have at least one account on many marketplace applications. Some even have a lot of accounts in one app. This is actually not allowed but people do that anyway.
Well, I still do a little bit of crocheting but just once in a while. Haven't finished any projects recently. I also have been gardening a lot and exploring a new hobby with chains. I've also been learning chainmaille. Have not been following my own advice of choosing one thing and be really good at it. Being a Jill of some trades is making me an expert of none.
Anyway, if you want to see what I have been making, you can see my instagram 'yubikincollections'.
That's it for now. Write me some questions!
