Crocheted baby hat and mittens

10 Feb

During the snow days a couple of weeks ago, I had ago at making a little baby hat and a pair of mittens for the granddaughter of my teaching assistant.
Here they are….

The pattern for the hat is from the Alli crafts blog. I just made it without the ear flaps, it’s a very useful pattern as it gives a range of different sizes.

I then used a pattern for the mittens from this book (page 26) however I did make a few changes. I didn’t want them to be too big as they were for a newborn so I missed a couple of rows towards the end of the pattern and I only put one row of picot trim. Also, I didn’t chain the length of wool for the bow, I just threaded a length through.

Finally, the little flower on the hat is from attic24, I think the teeny tiny flower pattern and I used two strands (the white and pink).

I’m very pleased with how this little set turned out.

So inventive… Fictitious Dishes

22 Aug

I came across this on Rachel Khoo’s blog and I think it’s such a clever idea. Fictional characters represented through a meal…I particularly like Alice in Wonderland.

This is the work of graphic designer Dinah Fried, take a look here.

I also love these book bags, also designed by Dinah Fried.

Mini make made!

20 Aug

Last night I made this sweet little hat…

Image

 

I altered the original pattern a little as I used thicker wool and a larger hook (4.5mm). Instead of doing 6 rounds of US dc (UK treble) all around, I changed this to 4 rounds of US dc all around.

I then did one round of UK htr in yellow at the base of the hat. To finish, I used 5 strands of yellow and blue and tied this to the top of the hat to make the cute little tuft.

This was so simple and quick to make (less than an hour) and turned out beautifully.

I just found this super-cute pattern at sennaloves for a crochet baby hat…

I think it will have to be a mini make before finishing my big blanket.
