This is a very exciting day for me! I have just released my new (and very first!) crochet pattern: The Genevieve Bonnet.
It is available for 50% off from now until midnight on Saturday. (No coupon code required) It is a versatile, basic bonnet, with some fun details: a scalloped edge, an interesting stitch, and long ties.
The pattern is concise and easy to understand with sizes from NB to 12 month.
You can use either light (3) or worsted (4) weight yarn and a K (6.5 mm) hook for NB or L (8 mm) hook for the other sizes.
I had some fabulous testers, who hooked up some pretty little bonnets. They are so talented and helped me through this new pattern-writing experience. Check a couple of them out:
I have been crocheting and knitting some Christmasy baby things lately. They are so adorable. I wish Tessa were still a tiny newborn so I could have some modeled shots. If you’re interested in purchasing any of these items, visit my facebook page.
Red is such a festive color.
I thought it would be fun to create some little angel wings. Wouldn’t this be such a pretty newborn holiday shoot? Or, how about for a little one year old? A cupid for Valentine’s day? The possibilities are endless! (The wings are similar to Tessa’s bird wings from Halloween.)
I made this set a while ago, intending to get it sent off to my sister-in-law for her baby shower. That didn’t happen as planned and now we are going home around the time that little miss will arrive, so now I will just take it in person. (Todd and Lizzie- if you see this, surprise! Sorry I’m lame and didn’t send it in time.)
I first found some fabric, that I just fell in love with, to make a sweet little snuggler. That will be in a different post.
I really think every little girl needs a pair of these crocodile stitch booties, especially ones born in the fall or winter.
Then, of course, we need a matching hat.
And, let’s not forget a cute toy for the little one to play with and chew on and stuff.
I have another sister-in-law who’s having a boy a couple of months after this little girl is set to be born. Their showers were around the same time, so naturally I didn’t get hers sent in time either. (Kristen- if you see this, sorry I’m lame! Your gift post will be coming soon.)
