Baby Gift

23 Nov

I finished another crochet project. Actually, I finished three and a half, but two and a half of those are holiday gifts, so I don’t want to post photos until the recipients receive them. So here’s the one I can post:

Baby Girl Sleeper Set from Crotiques

It’s a cute little set, and it was easy to make (top-down yoke style for the dress, then working in the round for the skirt portion). I bought a little purple and pink flowered top to go underneath it, and added pink flower buttons to the back of the dress and the sides of each shoe. It’s machine washable and dryable, so it will be easy on the new mommy. It took slightly less than one skein of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn to make the whole set, and for me to say it worked up quickly is really impressive, because I have very little time for crochet these days with Zack around. 🙂

I hope Mike’s coworker and his wife like it!

      Hi Katelyn!
      It sounds like yes, it’s worked in the round. Make a slip stitch in the first DC you worked for that round, joining the last stitch to the first. Feel free to email me – storiedyarns at yahoo dot com – or find me as storiedyarns on Ravelry if you need more clarification!! 🙂
