Hello! I am a designer behind Mon Petit Violon brand. In this little space of mine I share unique, beautiful and inspiring projects and patterns. I am an author and recently my first book "Super Cute crochet for Little Feet" was released in UK, Germany, France, Estonia an other countries! US version is coming out in March. I was born in Riga, Latvia, but currently living in Italy with my husband and our two kids. I truly believe that crochet (and other crafts as well) make the world a better place!

  10. Ciao Vita, complimenti per il tuo blog, é favoloso. Stavo cercando di fare questi moccassini ma non capisco cosa significa “2 hdc with on top”. Potresti aiutarmi?



  11. I just found your free pattern and think they are just adorable, thank you for the pattern. I was wondering if you could explain a part in the pattern where it says
    '2 hdc with on top'. I'm not sure what with on top means. I'm only new to crochet so if you could help that would be appreciated. Thank you:)

  12. On the first page of the pattern is description for special stitches. There you will find what means “2 hdc with one top”!

  13. Thanks for the cute patterns, I love the booties!

  19. Hi Vita,
    just was surfing in Internet searching for patterns for moccasins, and here I found.
    Just wanted to ask, I have a year old daughter and want to make them bigger, how to make them bigger, how much I need to add each line?
    I am sorry for questions just I am begginer in booties and moccasins. 😉
