yes sorry I did finish that magic circle from the last post, I MADE THIS TODAY –
CROCHET TODDLER FOX BEANIE! and it did include probably enough magic circles to cure my obsession with them! It was not today but the day after the fox beanie, only by then my cold had gone to chest infection and blogging dropped to lower priority.
I’m slowly getting the hang of appliqué, at first I was trying to use the crochet hook, but once I accepted the sewing factor and moved to an embroidery needle I enjoyed much success.
The lady beetle beanie is for my niece and based of this pattern from Repeat crafter me. I’m really liking this blog, lots of free crochet pattens and soo cute!
I haven’t sent this one down to my niece yet, as I’m work on a few more things for her, but I did express a pair of mitten to her as that was the original reason for all this crochet-wear.
The thing is, my niece has a super cute sister who my little one just adores, and it’s just not done to send for one and not the other, so we have some purple and cream mittens in the making that remind me of boiled sweets.
Purple is her fave colour ever!
I will definitely write up some instructions for these as they are super easy and my 16 month old niece will apparently not take them off!
