We all have those little nieces and nephews that are too far away for our liking! Well mine happens to be my god daughter as well. Sad that I couldn't be with her for her birthday, I decided to make her something special. I love home made gifts. I guess I am just sentimental like that. :)
It's been very cold in Minnesota so I decided on making her this winter set. I thought it was adorable. I hope she likes it. :)
These are very easy pieces to do. As I stated in my other blogs, I am just learning how to crochet so with the help of some great tutorials and a free pattern on lionbrand.com, I made the hat and the mittens. As for the scarf, I didn't follow a pattern. Old habits die hard. :)
If you would like to make this set..
Please see HERE for the hat.
Please see Lion Brand: Frosty Mittens- Pattern #: L20305. This site has many great patterns for free. (The only thing I don't like about this pattern is there is a hole left to make movement of the thumb easier. You can't see it unless you spread your thumb out. I think they are really cute mittens though and in the future I may customize that part a little bit to my liking. I just thought I should note this so you don't think you missed a step or something when your project is complete.)
For the scarf:
R1: Dc in 4th chain from hook, dc in every ch until end.
R2: Ch 3, turn, working in both loops dc in every ch until end.
Repeat R2 until desired thickness.
I went around the whole scarf with a slip stitch because I thought it would look cute. This is optional.
