Knits for my Baby

During the last weeks of my pregnancy I completed a few gifts for baby Palma. However we refurnished a room for her, we just store there the baby clothes and gear, I wanted our daughter to sleep in our room at least for a year. I think co-sleeping is a biological need of a newborn. Our room is tiny, we had enough place just for her crib. I decorated the crib with a few handmade softies and knits. I will show you the softies in another post.
This time I haven't created own patterns, I found the patterns on Ravelry, except the blanket, which is a very simple knitting construction and doesn't really require any instruction.

So, let's see the queue. I have already showed you this little west. I followed the pattern of Yarn Madness and used the squirrel chart of Ekornsokkene by Pinneguri. Well, my daughter could wear it just once and I am afraid that was also the last time, since she will grow out before the weather turns off enough cold for this wool shirt.
I also made a little bunny. I was impressed by the designs of Little Cotton Rabits and have always wanted to make one. I am really satisfied with the result, I think this is the cutest knit I have ever made. The photographer used the bunny as a photo prop of Palma's newborn photo session. See the photo on my Ravelry project page. I hope this softie will be something she keeps as an adult too. 
We took home from the hospital wearing this simple knitted beanie I made for her. It came out so tiny, I was suprised how small is a newborn's head. Anyway, she have grown out very quickly.
My favourite of the baby things I completed is this little colorful blanket, which was my bedtime project for a long time and now it is in everyday use, I would like to knit more blankies for her.

  1. All items are just so sweet! She will treasure them always. Just be sure to use them often so she benefits from their coziness!

  2. Gorgeous baby knits for Palma. So many sweet things. I must try a little cotton rabbits pattern. I always see such great crochet patterns for toys but I don't crochet and haven't come across such good knitting patterns for toys.

  3. I adore that little vest! Such a sweet knit for a baby girl.

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)

Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.

You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
