Crochet. My youngest great-niece turns 2 today.


I thought it would be fun to make her a little sundress, with a crocheted bodice or yoke and a thrifted men's shirt for the body. There are a lot of cute patterns out there for re-purposing men's shirts into girls' dresses, and also many cute ideas for crochet-top dresses. I decided to come up with my own design, which was dictated by the amount of yarn I had available (1 skein), and my almost pathological dislike of weaving in yarn ends (hence the 1-piece yoke). Here's how it turned out: If you're interested in making something similar, here are some photos and a description of the process. For the yoke, I knew I wanted to use this gorgeous soft yarn, so I shopped for a shirt to match: After a lot of messing around and frogging, I came up with a simple round yoke (using a child's dress pattern to help with the sizing).

This stitch pattern was pretty flexible, and the circle was small, so the yoke came out nice and flat without any increases. Moriarty: two colour stripey crochet beanie « The little house by the sea.

Moriarty: two colour stripey crochet beanie « The little house by the sea

Moriarty is a two coloured beanie, crocheted in a spiral, which means it doesn’t have a seam, but it does have a slight jag at the end of the hat, though if you do the version with the flower, this won’t show. ¿Tejes conmigo 2?

Crocheted Pin Cushion Pattern - English version

I mentioned just recently that Terri who used to blog frequently about awesome crochet stuff found this Crocheted Pin Cushion on a website from Denmark, and the pattern is available free on Ravelry. It was written entirely in Danish, by Liselotte who shows some beautiful pictures of her finished pin cushions on her website. Terri, being the clever and creative person that she is, used the pictures to figure out how to make the pin cushion and wrote down the pattern. She has graciously given her permission to post the pattern here for you to use. Before you do, though, do yourself a favor and take a peek at Liselotte's pin cushions and at Terri's too.
