Baby crochet jumper

Standard

Hello fellow crocheters,

Today I have completed very cute project that I didn’t quite like at the beginning, but in the end it worked. Since the project I have done was a baby cardigan I decided to talk to you about why I love making baby stuff.

Baby clothing/hats are precious and gorgeous. I love the way they work up very fast. And this is good for a person that is not quite good with patience. THAT’S ME!

It’s so cool to see the end product soon after you get your hands on it. I have no kids myself (yet) but I love making baby stuff for gifts or orders. Another plus of working with baby stuff is that there are millions of free patterns available online.

Now let me tell you a bit about the exact project I have completed. It was a hooded baby girl cardigan with scalloped edge, wooden heart shaped buttons and variegated yarn.
I have used 4mm hook and patons yarn that my friend bought as she ordered the cuteness from me.

I am very very sceptical about the use of variegated yarn but in this case I think it worked. I sourced the pattern at Yarnspirations. All together it took me about 7h to get it done. Recipient loved it! And I am honestly proud of my work when someone is as grateful as her.

My next project that I am working on is a scarf for my sister-in-law-to-be. It’s my own pattern and its going to be the first one I write out. I hope you all can help me to polish the pattern off so it’s easy to repeat. It will be available for free on my blog.

What are your thoughts  about that baby cardigan? Would you change anything?

With Love, Dorota

Little hatties

Standard

Hey folks,

Today is the day that I share with you a completed project for the first time. I am very excited to show you my recent makes for an order. They will both be available in my Etsy  store, links to etsy will be posted under the pictures.

Abbreviation :
Hdc – half double crochet
Fphdc – front post half double crochet
Bphdc – back post half double crochet.

Pompom hat
This is simple hdc toddler hat where I have substituted the last few rows of hdc for fphdc and bphdc. The purpose of the fphdc and bphdc was to create this ribbed effect. Hat was made using Sirdar hayfield bonus dk and 5mm knit pro waves hook.
This hat was super easy and super quick to complete.

Tricolor hat
This is also a toddler size simple hdc hat. However in this one I have added earflaps and braids. Colour pattern was suggested by the girl that ordered. I enjoy making hdc hats as they add up really quickly. As the previous one it was made using Sirdar hayfield bonus dk and 5mm hook.

I am not very good with sizing so I have used Sarah’s  pattern to figure out the correct size. For the link to her Repeat Crafter Me frog hat pattern that helped me a lot please click here.

Please share and let me know what are your thoughts on the hats that I have shared with you all today.
