Still busy typing the monkey hat pattern but..

...here's a sneaky look at the next hat just finished and in the typing queue!

It is light weight for the summer.. in 4ply (fingering weight) cotton yarn. With a re-moveable chin strap & you can place the tassel flower where ever you wish on the adjustible hat band.. which can also be used as a fancy headband on it's own without the hat if you want!

UPDATE - hat pattern now finished and avilable in my ravelry shop - click here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crochet-cloche-hat-with-tassel-flower

NEW! Pattern now finished

Well.. the pattern is finally finished and has been uploaded to Ravelry here so you can purchase & get immediate download. Typing and the proof reading just takes me forever... maybe one day i'll be a little faster ;)

The swing into spring coat pattern costs $5.50 If you would like to purchase one just click here and you will be directed to the ravelry shopping basket to make your purchase & receive your instant pattern download.

I'm already working on the next patterns... my usual model was not co-operating this morning...

so I persuaded her elder brother to pose for me...

What do you think he wanted as a reward? To Play Star Wars Lego on our Wii & be naked! The joys of being 3 & 3/4's :) So that was our deal... I was able to take some better photos and he... well I didn't take any photos of him playing afterwards.. I'll leave that to your imagination!

Helloooo & Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you're all having a wonderful time. Here in the Kelly household we're having a relaxed Easter... staying put at home & just spending time together...

I'm back into my designing & crocheting and going by the last few weeks I've definitely got my crochet mojo back! So I'm delighted to tell you all that I have some new patterns on the go.. the first of which is almost finished. It is a swing style coat (that will fit up to 12 months) in snuggly soft Wendy/Peter Pan Velvet Touch aran weight yarn (see photo above). Of course I just had to try it on Grace as soon as I had a chance & I think she really likes it :)

The coat also has a removable hood and the option of making some crocheted daisy flower motifs to decorate it with... It took me 16 variations of crocheted daisies until I was finally happy!

I've a few more of the daisies to crochet, stitch on & hopefully I'll be able to get Grace to model the completely finished daisy decorated coat... with & without the hood if she's willing! Then as soon as I've finished typing up the PDF pattern I will upload it for sale on Ravelry... so watch this space!
