Violet's story:
  The crazy witch Violet lives in the deep forest. Like every witch, she deals with various spells and prepares magic drinks in her shelter. She often goes out of the woods on her broomstick. She is currently collecting firewood for cold winter. Although everyone thinks she is very evil and running away from her, Violet is just a little evil and crazy because she is lonely. She likes cats and birds that are her only friends. I crocheted this Crazy witch with a worsted weight yarn and a 3 mm hook. She has gray hair, purple hat, granny square scarf and laces of different colors on her boots. The stick on her broom is the twig found in the woods. The violet is 23 cm high without a hat

Crochet basket - FREE pattern

Nakon dosta vremena objavljujem novi besplatni pattern za izradu heklane košare. Takva košara zgodna je za pospremiti sitnice koje svakodnevno koristimo i vučemo sa sobom, a pogotovo je korisna onima koji, kao i ja, vole započeti nove projekte, pa ih ostaviti po strani. Da se klupka ne kotrljaju svuda po sobi, najbolje ih je potrpati u jednu ovakvu handmade košaricu. 
Pattern sam objavila ne engleskom jeziku, jer nema baš interesa za pisati na hrvatskom. Dokument u PDF formatu može se skinuti sa ovih linkova:
