Camper Van Crochet Organiser

Hello fellow crafters!
I’ve decided to expand the collection of my crocheted organisers with a new Camper Van Organiser.
This time I decided to ignore the animals theme and made the organiser in a car shape for my baby son’s room. The design is pretty and simple. Body of organiser is crocheted in white color. Two handy pockets in blue imitating VW van painting. They are decorated with headlights in yellow and turn signal lights in orange.
I believe this organiser can be crocheted for both boys and girls. Whatever colour option you choose it will look beautiful and unique. As well as two of my previous organisers this one looks great for car journeys too.
Here is a short video which shows how cute this Camper Van organisers looks in a car.

For this organiser I used Phil 4 cotton yarn from Phildar. They’ve got a perfect colour palette to choose from and it keeps the shape good enough to be used for children’s toys and accessories.
The crochet pattern is in form of photo tutorial is available from Ravelry and Etsy.

If you've missed my two other organisers please see them here

Terra Sweater test knit

New test knit Alert!
I’ve just opened a new test knit for this comfy little sweater for kids.

Terra sweater is knitted back and forth on straight needles. The design is pretty and simple. I used combination of two stitches - simple cables and horizontal lines. The back and front of sweater are knitted separately, then, after shoulder is seamed or joined with buttons the stitches are picked up for the sleeves. The sleeves are knitted top-down which helps to adjust the length.

Knitting pattern is easy to follow and suitable for advanced beginners. It is written for two options of shoulder – with buttons closure for babies and small kids and with solid shoulder for bigger boys. The pattern is written for all sizes from 0-3 month through children size 5-6 years.

My sweater is knitted with Lana Grossa Cool Wool Big in shade 945. It is lovely wool yarn for kid’s knitting. The yarn is so soft and silky, it is not itchy and can be worn next to skin.

If you are fancy to participate in the test knit, please head to Knitting with ViTalina Craft group on Ravelry
