Sabrina's afghan, so much texture! I thought it would get boring, but has actually been really fun to crochet! She likes the bright colors and enjoys playing with the bobbles, not to mention will be nice and warm for winter!
I have been learning to knit in the round, and their has been a lot of little things to learn. I have unpicked a few times. This pink dress was originally a blessing dress pattern. I used red heart baby love yarn in pink and green and the lavender or purple is
Bernat baby coordinates. I am still thinking about doing the bottom rib over. I might just unpick and do it right, I just purled. I should have knit one row and purled the next, then it would have not rolled. I hope you like this, I am very please how it turned out. I used the pattern from the Precious Heirloom
and I just knit instead of the pattern and then an inch and a half before the bottom of the dress and sleeve I knit 4 yo knit 2 together all the way around for three rows. the middle row I shifted 2 stitches. Using the bigger yarn made it more for a 3-6 month old.
Just a few things I have been doing lately. I have been learning to knit in the round and learning new stitches. It has been so fun! I have more things finished just haven't put up pictures yet. The sweater pattern can be found here
The hat pattern I added an inch and a half of 2x2 rib, this hat is by: By Jennifer L. Jackson on ravelry
I have really enjoy doing baby projects they are so quick to finish and the patterns available on the net are soooo... cute!
This is a little dress I crocheted for my daughter 17 years ago, just found the picture and thought I would share. Hope you enjoy, it was really fun to make and worked up pretty fast. I made a ruffled tricot slip in white to go under it. The pattern is from a book called Baby's Heirloom Wardrobe, by Beverly Study
Sabrina is now so stylish! This is a fun little hat to make, and it turns out so pretty!
The original pattern has other colors added in, but I wanted to make her a pink hat. I just made up a flower and then sewed it on with 3 Bullion stitchs this is link for the stitch. bullion stitch
I like the way the granny stitches make it look a little lacy, It is very easy to understand the pattern.
I am making lots of progress on my afghan! I am so pleased with the look of it. I put the link in for the pattern. I hope you enjoy making this as much as I have. We bought a couch set off craigslist and I didn't have an afghan to match and this will look great! Just a few more rows and I'll be done. This is one of those patterns, after you get going it just gets in your head and no more looking at the pattern! I wish I would have done 4 rows of the dark green but I think it will look good this way. Happy crocheting!
