Pretty Pink Cardi.


Remember that thing I was crocheting a few days ago?
This lovely Bebop cardi is what it turned into. The pattern comes from here.

This is the first piece of clothing I have ever crocheted. It was really easy to make with no seams and all familiar stitches.

The only problem is that is doesn't fit the Birthday girl but instead looks really good on her almost two year old sister. Do I have time to make a bigger one by Friday?

I made the flower brooch as a closure but I think it would look great with a big old wooden button too.

In other exciting news, Indi's owl softie is on the One Pretty Thing site today. Yay!

Have you entered my giveaway yet?

  5. I cannot believe that is your first item of clothing you have crocheted, it looks beautiful and the bright side is at least it fits another of your girls. Are you madly trying to finish one for the birthday girl now! How exciting too for the cute owl to be featured, she must be so excited!

  18. I am attempting this pattern since I saw it on your blog, negotiating the bobble stitch though! and trying to find some nice soft cotton instead of wooly wool was tricky today too! Thanks for the inspiration...again!

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
