Old and New Crochet FOs

Sorry to disappoint those expecting to see a jacket, but my version of Doris Chan's Barcello jacket turned into a shrug ;)
I couldn't wait to finish, and a jacket will take forever (using thread) :p Besides, a long jacket is not practical for my lifestyle...
So here it is, my Coffee Shrug (free pattern from Caron):

And here's my latest self-published pattern available on Ravelry, 8-Petal Flower Pendant:

There are bigger and clearer photos on the pattern, and step-by-step photo tutorial :)

Lastly, here's an old project I made at least two years ago.

This design has improved since then. I'll show the other projects I made with significant improvement in style and fit. Hopefully you'll be surprised on my next post when I present this design ;)


  1. the projects are beautiful, Mimi!

  2. The jacket turned into a shrug looks great on you! I love the pendant too. Very chic!

  3. I really like your coffee shrug. it looks great! what kind of yarn did you use? it looks like it has a shimmer to it. very nice.

  4. Thanks everyone :))
    I used cotton thread size 8, its our regular crochet cotton here. It does look shinier in the photo ;)
