Can Cozy pattern

It's been a while since I made a crochet pattern. Today I made can cozy's for a friends husband. It's his birthday soon.
 
 
I used Svarta Fåret's Tilda-yarn och crochethook 3,5 mm.
 
 
Abbreviations:
MR - magic ring
Ch - chain
Sc - single crochet
Slst - slip stitch
St - stitch
 
Pattern cantunnel (make 2):
Ch 45. Close to a ring with slst. OBS make sure the ring dont get twisted.
Crochet around the ring until the tunnel is about 8 cm high. I made 22 rounds.
Block the tunnel around a can before you fasten the threads.
 
Pattern boob (make 2):
Begin with pink.
V1: MR. 5 sc in the ring. Pull the ring close and make a slst. Change to skincolour (5)
V2: 2 sc in each st (10)
V3: *1 sc, 2 sc in next st*, repeat until end of round (15)
V4: *2 sc, 2 sc in next st*, repeat until end of round (20)
V5-6: 1 sc in each st (20)
Finish off and save a long thread to sew the boob on the tunnel. Use the pink trhead from MR to make a couple of knots to form a nipple. Fasten the threads on the inside of the boob.
 
 
Pattern penis:
Begin with pink.
V1: MR. 5 sc in the ring. Pull the ring close and make a slst (5)
V2: 2 sc in each st (10) Change to skincolour.
V3-12: 1 sc in each st (10)
Finish off and save a long thread to sew the penis on the tunnel. With the pink thread from the MR you can make "incision" on the penis and then fasten the thread on the inside. One tip is to do this before you crochet to far on the penis, it's not easy turning the little piece inside out.
 
 
Pattern testicles (make 2):
V1: MR. 5 sc in the ring. Pull the ring close and make a slst (5)
V2: 2 sc in each st (10)
V3: 1 sc in each st (10)
V4: 2 sc together (5)
Finish off and fasten the threads.
 
Fill the parts with stuffing and sew on to the tunnels according to the pictures. I used the thread from the penis to sew the testicles on also (less threads to fasten in the end).
 
 
Happy crocheting!
 
 

Easter chickens with eggshell

Easter is here so why not make a small easter chicken?
A friend of mine wanted som easterchickens with eggshells so I immediately made a pattern and started crocheting.

You'll need crochet hook, sewing needle, yarn, safety eyes (or embroider the eyes) and stuffing.

Banderole pattern

I made this banderole for my youngest sons room in the same colours as the blanket I also made for him.
I have used yarn Drops Muskat in for different colours and crochethook 4 mm. You can of course use any colour or yarn that you want and any hook size to get the result you want.
Making a triangle is like making a granny square but you dont make the fourth side.

Abbreviations:
Ch = Chain
Dc = Double crochet
Slst = Slip stitch

Pattern triangle:
Make a magic ring.
1. In the ring: Ch 3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, slst in 3rd ch. Pull the ring tight.
2. Ch3, 2dc, ch2, *3dc, ch2* repeat 5 times, slst in 3rd ch.
3. Ch3, 2dc, ch2, *3dc, ch2* repeat 8 times, slst in 3rd ch.
4. Ch3, 2dc, ch2, *3dc, ch2* repeat 11 times, slst in 3rd ch.
5. Ch3, 2dc, ch2, *3dc, ch2* repeat 14 times, slst in 3rd ch.
6. Ch3, 2dc, ch2, *3dc, ch2* repeat 17 times, slst in 3rd ch.
Finish off and weave in the threads. Block your tringles for a nicer finish!

I made eight triangles in four different colourschemes. I changed colour after each row.
I then crocheted chains and slipstitches to get the triangles to hang on the string. I made the distance between the triangles as long as one side of a triangle.
String:
Ch 25, then slst in the back loops along the side of a triangle, repeat until all the triangles are on the string and finish by doing 25 chains.
Nice!!!
