Was passt im Sommer besser, als ein paar kleine Rosen, die Dank des glatten Baumwollgarns beim Häkeln nicht an den Händen kleben? Dachte ich auch, also gibt es eine fixe kleine Anleitung für euch. (English pattern below.)

Knitted Dishcloth – Free Pattern

Knitted dishcloth out of rico design creative bubble yarn made a new yarn for crocheting and knitting dishclothes. I liked the idea and wanted to make a knitted version. Here it is:


  • Knitting needle, 2.0mm (US 0)
  • Creative Bubble yarn in 2 different colors
  • crochet hook
  • scissors
  • darning needle

Cast on 32 stitches with one color.

You will knit in rows. In every odd row you will knit together the first two stitches and knit two out of the last stitch (knit into the front and into the back of the stitch).

Color 1: Knit in stockinet stitch for 6 rows: Knit odd rows, purl even rows.

Color 2: Change to the second color for 4 rows: Purl odd rows, knit even rows.

After that, you´ll change the color again and knit Color 1 and 2 until you used both colors 5 times. Cast off the stitches with the crocheting hook: Use the hook as you normally use your right hand needle and pull the second knitted loop directly through the first knitted stitch. No need to slip the stitches over.

Sew together

Cut the yarn. Use a darning needle for sewing together the CO- and BO-edge of the dishcloth. Now you have something like a tube.

Pull the side out, you like more. Use the yarn to sew around the opening of one side and pull it together. Do the same with the other opening and sew both former openings together in the middle.

Sew in the other threads and cut the yarn.

Have fun with your new dishcloth! If you like to show your results on facebook, instagram or twitter please use the hashtag #cficandothat. You can finde this pattern on ravelry.

Baby Booties "Coffee Break" - Free Pattern

– Enthält Werbelinks  –

After I´ve made some baby patterns, a lot of visitors asked me to make some booties. Here they are!  You can knit them with a little amount of sockyarn (fingering weight, 4ply). I´ve made them with the so called "Kaffeebohnenmuster" – coffee-beans-pattern. You can knit it in 2 sizes: 0-3 month and 3-6 month. If it is needed, you will find the instructions for the bigger size in the brackets.
Let´s go!

German pattern: Die deutsche Anleitung findest du hier
Knitted baby booties in coffee beans pattern


  • sock yarn – fingering weight
  • 2.75mm/ US 2 dpns
  • darning needle
  • scissors

Material for babybooties


p = purl
k = knit
ktbl = knit through backloop
sl = slip
k2tog = knit 2 together
yo = yarn over
BO = bind off
CO = cast on
psso2 = pass the slipped stitch over the 2 knitted stitches
rnd(s) = round(s)
st(s) = stitch(es)
WS = wrong side



CO 33 (41) sts. Work in the round. Be careful, not to twist. Slip the first st to the end of the last needle and knit it together with the last st of the first round. This will make a nicer CO edge.

Work in the ribbing pattern: k1tbl, p1 – continue, until the ribbing measures 2.75 inches (I´ve made 26 rounds).

Top of the Foot

Work the ribbing pattern over the first needle (= 8/10sts). You will not use the sts on needle 1 and 4 for the top of the foot. You are working with the sts on needle 2 and 3 now – putting them on one needle makes it more pleasant (= 16/20 sts).
You work in rows now: sl the first st of every row as if to k tbl and p the last st of every row.

Row 1: p3 (4), k2, p2, k2, p2, k2, p3 (4)
Row 2 (= WS): work sts as they appear
Row 3: p3 (4), *k1, yo,  k1, p2* - work 2 times, k1, yo,  k1, p3 (4)
Row 4 (= WS): work sts as they appear – p the yo.
Row 5: p3 (4) , *sl1,  k2, psso2, p2* - work 2 times, sl1, k2, psso2, p3 (4)
Row 6: (= WS): work sts as they appear - p the 2 slipped over sts

Work rows 3-6 a total of 4 (5) times.

You are now at the toes of the shoes. K one row over the toe-sts. Now pick up 9 (11) sts out of the edge foot top, k the sts of needle 4 and 1 and pick up again 9 (11) sts on the other side of the foot top. K 7 (9) rnds in stockinette stitch. Devide the sts while knitting, so that you have 10 (14) sts from the middle of the toe on one needle and 10 (14) sts from the middle of the heel on one needle.


Now you work in rows again, from the toe to the heel, in garter st – only k sts. In every row, you k2tog with the last st of your working needle and the first st of the side needle (needle 2 or 4). Then you turn the work and bring the yarn to the front, sl the first st k-wise.
Knit, until you´ve used all sts of needle 2 and 4. You have 10 (14) sts on the first and 10 (14) sts on the third needle now. Cut the yarn and leave a long tail. Put the tail on a darning needle and sew the sts together with kitchener st.

Sew in all the ends and fold the ribbing down. Work the second shoe and be happy with your baby booties! 

I´d be happy to see your work on instagram (tag me @carosfummeley and/or use the hashtag #cficandothat) and on ravelry: You can find the pattern page on ravelry: Coffee Break Booties on Ravelry.

Headband - Free Pattern

- Enthält Werbelinks -
Free knitting pattern for a headband with two strands of yarn

I made this pattern, because I wanted to do a new pattern out of a double held yarn work. It is my first english translation, so be kind and send any typos and language errors in a comment, on instagram or facebook to me, so that I can fix it. Have fun with this headband pattern and let me know, if you like it. 


Headband pattern with two strands of yarn - Knitting pattern


You need to take double yarn for knitting this project. Use the yarn from the inside and the outside of a ball at the same time, or make two balls out of one. You´ll knit the headband in rows and knit together the CO and BO edge at the end. Don´t worry, I´ll show you how it works!

CO 20 sts with US 6 needles and a provisional cast on. I recommend to use a crocheted provisional cast on, as it is shown in this video.

Row 1: slip the first half of the first stitch knitwise, *k the remaining half of the st tog with the first half of the next st, purl the remaining half together with the first half of the next st* - work from * to * until 3 sts left, p last 3 halfs (1.5 sts) tog

Row 2: turn the work, sl the first half st knitwise, *k the remaining half of the st tog with the first half of the next st, purl the remaining half together with the first half of the next st* - work from * to * till the end.

Work Row 2 until work measures 17,75 inches. To be sure, measure the headband and your head circumference. Your head should be a little bit wider than your headband. The yarn and pattern will be elastic.

Knit Together and Working the Bow

Put the sts from the provisional CO on a third needle and knit them together with your life stitches. = k2tog with one st of every needle. Be careful not to twist your headband. Work the BO while knitting together.
Cut the yarn and leave a long tail. Sew the tail in while pulling together the seam lightly.

Now you work the bow band: CO 5 sts and work in headband pattern, but without p sts. Just ktog one half of the first and one half of the next sts, until the bow band is long enough to go around the seam and making a nice bow out of your headband. Knit together the sts on your needle with the CO sts on the back of the headband. It´s not necessary to make a provisional CO, as you´ll not see the seam later. Cut the yarn and sew in the tail.
Your headband is finished! Have fun with it!

I´ll be happy to see your finished headbands on instagram (please use the hashtag #cficandothat or/and tag me @carosfummeley) facebook or twitter. I´d be also happy about your project pics on ravelry. You can find the pattern page here.
