only to show you I'm still here post

do you remember this?

Ana asked me about the pattern for it, so here you go:


1 - make a double ring with 5 sc
2 - m2, sc4
3 - sc1, m2, sc4
4 - sc1, m2 x2, sc2, sc2tog
5 - sc2, m2, sc5
6 - sc3, m2 x2, sc3, sc2tog (from now on the decreases will always cross the first stitch of the new/next round, don't worry, just start the new round after the decrease like nothing happend)
7 - sc3, m2, sc6
8 - sc4, m2 x2, sc4, sc2tog
9 - sc4, m2, sc7
10 - sc5, m2 x2, sc5, sc2tog
11 - sc5, m2, sc8
12 - sc6, m2 x2, sc6, sc2tog
13 - sc6, m2, sc9
14 - sc7, m2 x2, sc7, sc2tog
15 - sc7, m2, sc10
16 - sc8, m2 x2, sc8, sc2tog
17 - sc8, m2, sc11
(with a 3,5 mm hook my horn was about 6,5 cm long, there is a rhythm after row 8 that you can easily recognize and that allows you to elongate and enlarge the horn as wide as you like)

you might remember this beginning of a seahorse as well. I finally finished it, yay! pictures will follow in the next days.

I also started thinking about a new cardigan. I choose the blue silk/wool blend pictured here. I was first thinking about the golden yellow but prefer the blue now. It's a single ply and winding it into a ball I immediately saw it's not a good yarn to frog which means I cannot allow myself alot of trial and error with this cardigan. The issue is I only know that I want 3/4 sleeves and buttons. I want a back motif similar to Sylvie, but of course not Sylvie. And I have no idea about the cleavage - do I want one? a turtle neck? a low neckline? noooo idea!


before I forget, it would be cool to see what you make of the horn pattern, as I mentioned before I can imagine it in alot of different purposes like alien feet, bird beeks, tails?

  1. Thank you very much!! I promise I'll let you know you soon as I finish my doll with it's hat!

  2. Hi! Could you explain what m2 and x2 means? I get the sc and I am assuming the sc2tog means to decrease 2 together....any help would be great! I want to make viking hats for all the kids at my sons 4th birthday party themed "how to train a dragon!!"

  4. yes i would want to know what that means as well.

  5. m2 = make two, so it's an increase.
    x2 = repeat two times

    hope it helps =)

  6. Hey.
    I tried to realize your pattern, but it just doesnt work as good for me. :-(

    in your picture the horn is nice and straight. but mine as a twist. it kind of looks like a horn of a sheep, which is a little bit curled.

    where could i have made a mistake? please help.You have the only horn-pattern i found :-)

  7. now that i tried it several times, it finally works. thanks a lot

  8. you're welcome =)
    did you find out where your twist came from?

  9. HI there, I found your pattern its very lovley, I'm going to try this for a hat for my husbband..I just want to confirm on the m2..does that mean 2 single in the next 2 sc sts? I just want o make sure!! I appreciate your time and you have awesome works!

  10. Hi pink,

    no the m2 is a increase, so it's 2 sc in the next stitch

    2 sc in the next 2 stitches would be sc2


  11. I followed the pattern to a t (marker and all) and it also has a twist. Advice would be appreciated!

  12. I have tried to work this pattern twice, but my row counts keep coming out wrong. Rows 7, 9, & 11 seem to have to many stitches. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

  13. Hi Margaret,
    sorry for the late answer,
    what do you mean by "it has a twist"? I'd like to help as best as I can

  14. Hi Acitra,

    have you re-arranged the marker after the decrease? round 6 explains why this happens.

  15. I was puzzled by the 'm2' as well, until I read everybody else's comments. Perhaps at the start of your instructions, you could insert this line:-

    M2 = Increase by working 2 single crochet in next stitch.

    Personally I would have used 'increase in next stitch' with a symbol showing M1

    1. thanks for the comment :) I really should update this post so there is a list of abbreviations at the beginning :)

      take care, Diana

    2. Thanks for this pattern! Once I'd got my head around the abbreviations, it worked fine - now all I have to do is find a crochet Viking Helmet pattern to attach my two horns to! LOL ♥

  16. And HERE is the rather scary result, with many thanks to you for the horns as a finishing touch!

  17. I just tried this out and my horn also came out all weird and twisted looking. Going to try again. Hopefully it comes out pretty like the photo :D
    Thanks for the pattern!

  18. Hi, i tried the pattern but my work twist too.
    Somebody can explain me how do you proceed for have this perfect result, i think i have problem when i begin a row after decrease. the last sc of row is the first sc of next row too? i dont understand what i should do with the marker :s

    ( sorry for how i speak ,english is not my first language ^^' )

  19. I forgot to ask for m2 x2 : When they are " sc4, m2 x2, sc4, sc2tog " , i need to do "sc4, increase , increase, sc4, sc2tog " or "sc4, increase, sc4, increase, sc4, sc2tog " ?
