Before Christmas I was so busy with my crochet, knitting a sewing although I didn't plan too much handmade. I made the choco spoons for my cousin, knitted a hat for my husband and for an other cousin (baby Lili's mother), sewed two pillows for Juci and baby Lili and crocheted a purse for my sister-in-law. Plus almost each wrapping were decorated with crocheted snowflakes and made some garland too. It didn't seem to much at first, but I had to realize, that knitting a beanie on 3 mm needles is not a one-night adventure and although a snowflake is really quick to complete, but 30 of them is a nice crochet-along program.
Time to share with you my creations. This post is dedicated to my cousin's beanie. The pattern is available for free on Ravelry. It is so delightful I had to make it. I owned the grey yarn from months, it was bought for a hat for myself, but Christmas changed my plans :)
This beanie was really a last-time project, I started to knit on 22th December and the blocking was ready on 25th December evening. I met with my cousin on 26th.
The hat was inspired by Hermione's hat from Harry Potter. And I must tell, this beanie exactly looks like Hermione's hat!! So lovely!
Do you like Harry Potter novels? I love them, I will never be enough grown up from fairy tales....
The designer of the pattern asks us to make an upside down photo. So I asked husband to take a photo from me. I am a little bit scary on the picture:
But my favourite pictures are those where baby Lili is modeling. See how cute she is in this oversized hat:
|The owl pillow she is playing with was my gift for her :)|
Wish you happy crafting!
