Today I would like to show off my first ever crocheted jumper. Made for my baby girl in silky coral yarn, I think it was Rico but I am not sure as it was completed long time ago.
Cutie’s Hoodie was done following very simple pattern I found in my favourite magazine Women’s Weekly Knitting & Crochet. It has lots to offer, patterns for beginners and advanced, tips and tricks, makes for women, babies or home. You name it, it’s there!
Without further ado: Cutie’s Hoodie 🙂
I must say I am very proud of this make and will definitely make it again and again in bigger sizes. It was super easy yet the effect is so gorgeous that lots of people complimented it. What do you think?
I recently fell in love in Sirdar Pattercake yarn cakes. When I saw Candy Cane, I knew I had to make a baby blanket out of it. The yarn cake even comes with simple pattern on the back of the band. I decided to try this out.
The pattern was very easy to follow. Blanket is made from corner to corner by adding and then decreasing stitches on each side of the blanket. It has nice thick texture as it’s made with garter stitch. I have decided to add a little bit of crochet edging as I can’t live without finishing blankets with crab stitch.
I am totally in love with the colors of Candy Cane. The bonus is that it is self-striping yarn so you only need to buy one ball!
Today I am proud to show you lovey blankie I made for my baby girl. I didn’t have a particular pattern or design, just an idea in my mind and I added some bits as I went through violet Rico yarn. I started knitting small blanket in basket weave to give it nice texture and finished in crochet picot edge. I still had a small ball of yarn left so I decided to try amigurumi elephant, it was just enough to make head and arms and to sew all bits together. I was really pleased with the effect and my baby seemed to like it too. At some point she couldn’t fall asleep without her lovey.
Without further ado, I present to you Ellie the Elephant.
Ellie makes really nice cuddly toy, can go for a walk as stroller companion or can even keep your wriggly baby warm at night if made big enough. My girl was a bit startled by me taking a photo but still held her lovey 🙂
I am happy to present one of my first projects: baby jumper made for my son. I followed Drops pattern “McDreamy” available here.
I used cheap baby soft yarn available in my local shop (like the one here) as I was not sure of the outcome of the pattern. It came out really lovely, so if I ever knit this again I will definitely go for high quality cashmere merino, like this.
The baby jumper has textured pattern and raglan sleeve. It is done from bottom to top. As I don’t enjoy sewing finished pieces I used circular needles for body and sleeves. It was a bit tricky joining it all together and working through yolk, it was challenging my patience every minute, but it was all worth it. I had only small sewing to do under arms. To finish, I used wooden painted buttons, ordered from here. I absolutely love these buttons and use them whenever I can as they come in different patterns and colors.
What do you think of this jumper? Do I get thumbs up?
