Sugar and Spice, and Everything Girlie!

I have long been wanting to make clothing for my Little One, and finally did! Here’s a sweet chevron dress I crocheted for her. It fits like a glove (remember that gauge is extremely important when working up garments)! This dress is made beautifully girlie with a crochet bow added at the waist. A MUST-HAVE in any girl’s wardrobe!

Caron “One Pound,” worsted weight yarn was used in colors peach and cream. The pattern was easy to follow, and didn’t have any mistakes (at least for the size for 4-year-olds). And! I know you’re dying to know where the pattern came from! Yes, you guessed it. It’s a Red Heart pattern! Here it is:

Fall Poncho Part II

My Fall Poncho is still not done. Nope. I blame it on the kiddos! Ha ha! I did, however, finish the edging, but still need the hood. Oh, the hood… Let’s just say that it’s all about the gauge. I started making one part of it, was almost done with it, and realized that the piece was GIGANTIC compared to the poncho itself. Good grief! It was soon unraveled…(I’m sure you know the feeling all too well!)

The poncho itself is soft and warm, without being sweaty-hot (mind you, I’m a hot-bodied person). Thus, it will make the PERFECT poncho for my neck of the woods (AKA:  ‘The Sunshine State’ – where it’s really never cold)! 😉

Fall Poncho Part I

A few nights ago, I talked about a peach seed, and briefly mentioned the fall poncho I’m working on. Almost done with it; just need to finish the bottom front, add the hood, and edging. It’s a one-size fits all. Can’t wait to see how the completed poncho turns out! Will definitely keep you all updated.

(P.S. I was supposed to use bulky and cotton yarns, but didn’t have enough of either to complete the project, and didn’t want to spend more money on yarn (My collection is out of control! Ha!). So, I used medium-worsted weight yarn. The poncho obviously lacks the thick texture of that the bulky and cotton yarns provide, but the medium-worsted weight yarn allows for more movement and clings more to your body frame. I think it’s perfect if you want to accentuate your body shape.)

Here are the photos I promised:
