I tried yet another new project - a Sunhat for my cutie pie.

I saw some stitched versions of it on Pinterest and thought I should have one for my lil one (though she pulls it off). I did find some patterns, but did not find anything with the dimensions I wanted. So I figured out the math and finally made one.

Here it is.

I wanted to take few pics with my lil model wearing it. But unfortunately, she can't stay still for pics. I'll have t take some time out to do a proper photoshoot.

Now, coming to the yarn - it is Nako Comfort Stretch. Thanks to Ninu without whom I wouldn't have found it. It can be ordered from the Pony Craft Store. The yarn is really soft and as the name suggests, it really does stretch. And exactly is the reason I chose it for this project. 

Now the rosette. I enjoyed making the rosette a lot. It was super quick and addictive. Especially, when it comes to Shell stitches, I just love it. 

I am now have a Crocheter's block.... Thinking, thinking, thinking, what to make next!

Angel Wings

Since I started crochet, I have always wanted to make a dress or something of that sort. Making one for me means too much of yarn and time. And I may not wear it too. Luckily I have my cute lil angel now for that.

I came across this pattern and instantly wanted one for my angel. I crocheted for a few days and here is the result.



I was uncertain about the end result. Many a times, I thought I should stop it half way and roll back all those yarn. But still the urge to create one kept me going. 

Unlike the pattern, it is not a pinafore. It is a dress with two buttons at the back.

I modified the pattern heavily. Increased the number of stitches, rows, changed the style from pinafore to dress, and made it look like a bubble dress with a shell edging.

Here's a sneak peak into the inside of the dress. 

Excuse the poor quality pics. I did not have much time as somebody lil was tagging and pulling at my legs to be lifted up. Only while I was transferring the images did I realize that I had put it in the wrong setting. And no time for pics again now. 

One more pic of this dress... I am so much in love with it.
