I was trying to crochet a bonnet for a newborn but it turned out bigger than I expected because I was using a larger hook. It's okay though. I wanted matching hats for a sibling newborn photo. Baby girl is 2 and this should fit her head just fine. I think a tie back in the same mohair yarn will look better on the newborn! I followed the tutorial here. It was a little confusing and in the end I think I just stopped following the instructions. The problem is I'm not using the same type of yarn and size hook. There's not a whole lot of tutorials using mohair yarn and the written patterns I did find was confusing to follow (or I'm not good at following it).
I love making newborn hats because they're so fast to make and so cute! I'm on a roll today! haha. I got the pattern here. The only difference in mine is that I crocheted one less roll and I weaved in the lace to match the number of shell stitches I had. I know... it's the same hat on different backgrounds. I thought the white lace and ivory ribbons didn't show well in the lighter color background. :) What's with the hearts? Well, it's almost Valentine's Day! So I took photos on my Valentine set up. ♥
I saw a pom pom hat on Pinterest and I thought it was the cutest thing! So I made one of my own. It's so darn cute! I can't wait to use it! When I have time (because my whole family is sick with a bad cold) I will come back to this post and include the pattern. I'm excited that I actually learned how to read patterns! Being able to read patterns means there's that much more projects I can take on! Plus, if I come up with my own pattern, I can share! Who doesn't love free patterns!?!?
My sister is expecting another girl! How come she keeps getting girls and I only get boys? ^_^ She's actually due today. I'm sure she is more than ready for baby girl to come out! I never made it to full term with my 3 boys and I know I was ready waaaay before I gave birth! I'm hoping she's up for newborn photos. Most of the time, we're so busy and sleep deprived, taking photos is far from our minds but I hope I can sneak some shots anyway because I know that she will treasure the photos later... they're only newborn for so long and having photos of them is so precious! So I was at the Dollar Tree and saw these pink puff ball yarns and bought 6 of them! Why? I don't know! Because it's a dollar!!!! They usually sell for $5-$6
Check out what else I used the yarn for! It makes a cute garland for Valentine's Day!
