Fall/Winter 2014-2015 - The Anarchist's Collection: #4 - Crochet Cat Nest

It's the ultimate crochet pattern (and gift) for cat lovers. It's quick to make, although working with t-shirt yarn and a small hook (8.00mm) can be a challenge (but it is an excellent way of working out while crocheting). I used some t-shirt yarn I bought at the dollar store for €1.85 and used 3 "skeins", for a total of about 1500 gr. Awesome, awesome project, which gave origin to a massive feud between my cats. They keep fighting among themselves to get in the nest and the worst part is that the nest is not even for them... Poor, poor Anarchist kitties... :)

The (free) pattern can be found here!
Ze, say "Hi" to our visitors!

É, com certeza, o melhor modelo (e prenda) em crochet para os apaixonados por gatos. É fácil e rápido de fazer, embora trabalhar com trapilho e uma agulha pequena (8.00mm) possa ser um desafio (mas é uma excelente forma de irmos ao ginásio enquanto fazemos crochet). Usei trapilho que comprei numa loja asiática (chamemos assim), 500 gr por €1.85 e usei 3 "novelos", para um total de cerca de 1500 gr. Projecto espectacular, que deu origem a um conflito enorme entre os meus gatos. Estão sempre a lutar uns com os outros para ver quem vai para lá dormir. E o pior é que o ninho nem sequer é para eles... Pobres, pobres gatos Anarquistas... :)

O modelo (gratuito) pode ser encontrado aqui!

OMG, It's Almost Christmas Fingerless Mitts - Free Crochet Pattern/Modelo Grátis de Crochet

Every year is the same. In August, I start going on and on about how I need to be knitting/crocheting for Christmas and then December comes and I do everything in a matter of days, so I need super-quick patterns. Discipline is not my forte. Yesterday, I decided to make these fingerless mitts and I think that the end result is something worth sharing. For that reason, here's the pattern. É sempre o mesmo. Em Agosto, começo a dizer que é preciso começar a trabalhar para o Natal e depois chega a Dezembro e faço tudo no espaço de alguns dias, razão pela qual preciso de modelos rápidos. A disciplina não é o meu forte. Ontem, decidi fazer estas luvas sem dedos e acho que o resultado final até merece ser partilhado. Por isso, aqui fica o modelo.

2.5 k - A Quick Granny Stripes Crochet Lapghan

After having spent an entire week trying to finish what apparently was a never-ending dress for Litte A. in *navy blue* (the horror!), I needed some instant "craftification". And nothing says fast like a Q/15mm hook and 4 strands of yarn held together, right?

The yarns had all been in my stash for quite some time, staring at me, softly whispering "Please, make something out of me" and you know you should always listen to what your yarn has to say.... Particularly the Sale Luxury Premium one, of which I ordered 16 skeins back in February only to find out that it did not live up to my expectations. "Make a lapghan out of me", it said, and the Anarchist quickly complied, using 12 skeins of the sheep-smelling fussy mess. To the mix, I added 3 skeins of Baby Multicolor and 2 skeins of Diva, all from Ice Yarns. So my stash is 2370 meters lighter! That's almost 2.5 kilometers (2700 yards, give or take)! That's a whole lotta yarn! Not bad, for such a simp…

Sock Yarn Baby Blanket - Free Knitting Pattern

Most baby blankets' patterns give me the creeps. They're heavy, frumpy, impractical and even worse is when they have a right side and a wrong side (who has time for that when you're trying to wrap up a baby in the cold?). More, baby H., my much-anticipated godson, will be born right in the middle of summer and temperatures here get quite high. So, with all this in mind, I decided I wanted something extraordinarily light, colourful and easy. And this was born: 
It only weighs 150 gr, it's light, airy but still able to keep those cold summer evenings and nights at bay! And the pattern (if we can even call it a pattern) couldn't be any simpler: you knit, knit, knit and let the yarn speak for itself. I think the most imp…
