baby hat avd mittens

I was experimenting around with a new crochet stitch I found on Pinterest (star stitch) and made this hat and mittens set. The ribbing didn't quite work the way it should do- too loose- but after three attempts I think I now know how to do star stitches.

Baby Mandela

I saw this Mandela blanket in issue 33 of simply crochet and thought I would give it a go. I needed to make a baby blanket anyway and this would be slightly different to the normal granny square version. I used pastel baby wool instead of the vibrant colours suggested and only completed up to round 44- any larger and it would be too big!

Snowman Hat

My fourth hat... a snowman one. I downloaded the pattern for this last November from the repeatafterme blog. I think the eyes are too big. The pattern said to use buttons for the eyes and mouth but I didn't want to on a child's hat (approx. 2 years). Might have to make another at some point...
