Dizzy Delft

It is with great happiness that after almost a year and a half, I have started to do some crochet designing again. Luckily I can do it at my own pace and whenever I feel like it and just for fun! I have started many projects since I moved to The Netherlands, but I was not very motivated to finish any and with Covid-19 and settling in a new country, my focus was mostly homeschooling and to get my kids sorted with schoolwork and adaptation to a new culture.

The Netherlands with all its Delft Art inspired me to make at least one Delft-inspired crochet design to remind me of my journey so far and all the ‘dizziness’ I experienced with mastering a new language, culture, systems etc.

Today I published my new throw pattern, Dizzy Delft, on my Ravelry Store: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dizzy-delft

It is also a tribute to my previous crochet life in South Africa – I have played with motifs and patterns in order to create dizzy-like patterns. The throw was done in Scheepjes Catona, which is obviously a wonderful and accessible choice here in The Netherlands and lovely to work with. Maybe this is also a pattern that inspires you and it will also be interesting to see it in other colours and yarn!

Happy crochet!

  1. Hi Karen, welcome back and what a stunning design! I was wondering how you were doing, what with being in a new country and having a pandemic to cope with. Let’s hope things improve quickly and we can travel again. Europe, with all her beauty and history is waiting for you with inspiration for new designs. I can’t wait to see what’s next šŸ™‚ Groete uit Zoetermeer, Karen xx
