Now don't get me wrong. I have made some of the things that I have found on there, and this is what my Friday's posts will be dedicated to... things I actually found on there and did. So here is off to a good start. I don't know if I have mentioned, but I love making baby things. I find them so cute, and most importantly quick to make (which is very important, as I get bored of projects rather quickly). I found this Vintage Crochet Pattern Child’s Hood and just fell in love with it. What a cute baby bonnet. I just had to make it.
Now let me explain what I did... because I strayed from the pattern a bit :) I quickly skimmed over the pattern to get the general idea of the work involved, and when I went to actually make it, I.... well I didn't break off yarn and just turned and crochet back. I didn't realize it until a while later, but didn't see much difference so I let it be. And I just hate hiding the ends so this worked better for me. I also changed the flower for one I liked better and made some swirly ties instead of the ribbon. Here is my finished project.
Did I mention that I love big flowers on babies?
And then I went on to make a second one. This one is in need of a nice decorative button :) I'm sure the crochet hook holding it together would be a poking hazard for a little baby LOL
I really liked this pattern, although I'm not sure if I did the stitch right. I could not figure out where exactly the hook is supposed to go at some points, but I think it makes for a pretty bonnet, and I would definitely make one again.
