My Gallery

Welcome to Pikay's Gallery

I'm a self-taught crocheter/knitter that's always hunger to learn more. A mammoth thank you to all fellow crocheter/knitter that took their time to post videos and written tutorial. It wouldn't have been possible without your contribution! THANK YOU!


Wow! Another year slipped time flies when you're knitting :) It's obvious, I've been slacking on my blog update. Last post was 4/27/11! I'm officially an occasional blogger only. What I slack off in blog, I more than made-up in knitting and crocheting. Most of my projects are somewhat recent on Ravelry.

Major milestone for 2011:

Shelliyanni went live on 8/6/11. My first knitting pattern for sale.

All patterns here are for personal and charitable use only. Please do not sell the patterns or the finished project. Thank you for honoring this request.

Little Scissor Holder

Getting tired of fishing for my scissor, stitch marker, and pens in my crochet bag, I made this little carrying bag for it.

Hoops for pens
Hoops for scissor
The hoops are made as I crochet the hdc. Using this method, you can place the hoops to your liking. To hold wider items, like scissor, ruler, chain longer. Example, my pen holder, I ch 3, while for my scissor, it's ch 4.

This method may be apply to make a crochet hook or knitting needle pouch/keeper.

My stitch marker, which consist of safety pins
Using pin button instead of having to sew one!
Wahla! Instant button. Gotta love that! :)
Now it's easy to attach & detach my Little Holder Bag.

Hook: 5mm
Yarn: Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in Country Pink
