I made Miss Bear a lavender trouser, a transshipment jacket and a simple hat. All items are knitted. Only the lavender rim on the jacket is hooked. The jacket is knitted in one piece. Two buttons close the jacket, one on the inner side and one on the outer side. The trousers are also knitted in one piece. The hat is from leftover yarns in lavender and purple colors. I made alternating rows of knit and purl rows. I am planning to make also a hat with holes for the ears, I think that will be lovely.
The crocheted skull cap on my blog is very popular. There are many hits and downloads. Mostly people find my pattern on Ravelry. Only I don’t know of the cap is really made and wear. Therefore I would ask you down-loaders, if you want to send me a picture or post it on Ravelry in the projects section if you have made the cap. I am very curious if adding a free pattern is appreciated.
A few weeks ago I could lend a porcelain head, so now I can take a much better picture of the skull caps and of the caps and hats in my stash. Doesn’t it looks fine? Soon more pictures of hats and caps.
Because it is Halloween, a special hat, the Jack O lantern hat.
Instructions: make a Halloween hat and embroider the mouth, eyes and nose to the hat, You’re done.
Happy Halloween, Elzeblaadje
What about knitting an orange pumpkin cap this weekend for Halloween? All You need is a skein of orange yarn, like Stylecraft or Bravo and a bit of some similar green yarn, and needles nr. 4. I wrote the pattern notes already down for you, some time ago, but finished them this Friday. An experienced knitter makes the cap in a few hours.
You can find the notes under projects >> colorful caps >> caps for Halloween
I am totally addicted to crochet flowers and leaves. And looks this sunflower with leaves not nice on my sunhat. I found in the shop a nice book with many flower and leaves patterns. I Like the patterns very much. It seems of they resemble the flowers themselves. The patterns are not easy to crochet, but the result is beautiful.
Well, I am still crocheting and have lot of ideas. For instance this hat, I want to dress it up with some flowers and leaves, and of course one of the small robins. I want to use it for an event in september. Meanwhile the Cal is not going well. The cactus is not going to be ready this weekend. Something tells me it is because I am making all kind of other things, like robins for the upcoming event.
Isn’t she lovely with her fairytale dress and nice bonnet. On the hat a big flower and she can go everywhere she wants. Dolls want to be adorable and a simple hat does the trick. It is al made from cotton with a filet stitch and a small picot rim.
