Some of my recent projects

 

I love making these bobble hats. They look so cute on as well. I used Repeat Crafter Me’s polar bear pattern to make them, but using a 6mm hook instead of a 5.5mm, with chunky yarn. The preschooler size fits a good age range, probably from about 2-5 as it is lovely and stretchy.

This is the cutest little set for a newborn baby girl. I used this free pattern for the hat and Repeat craft me’s baby bootie pattern. Here is the pattern for the mitts. I used Red Heart baby soft yarn. It is lovely to work with and looks beautiful when finished.

I was asked to make a scarf to go with the Frozen bobble hat  and wanted something with texture. I found used the “mindless scarf” pattern on Rav and loved how it turned out. It was a really easy pattern to follow, quick to work up and looks far more complicated than it is. I used double strands of stylecraft sherbet DK yarn and James Brett twinkle DK in white, like the Frozen hat, along with a 6.5mm hook.

Teeny snowflake pattern

I struggled to find a small simple snowflake to add to some child size fingerless mitts so I came up with this. Just noting it down so the second snowflake matches my first!

They match!

Pattern is in US terms.

Use dk yarn and 3mm hook.

Ch4 and sl st into 1st ch to make a ring

Row 1: ch1, *sc into centre of ring, ch3* repeat ** 5 times with a slip stitch into first sc after the final ch3. There should be six ch3 loops.

Row 2: *2 sc into ch3 loop, ch3 then sc into 1st ch (picot), 2sc into loop. sl st into sc between loops on previous row.* Repeat ** 5 more times and fasten off.

I recommend blocking to fix the snowflakes in shape before appliqueing (is that a word?!)
