Dandelion Panama Hat

25.5.15
Please welcome my new knitting design – Dandelion Panama Hat.  I made this beautiful panama hat to match my daughter’s Dandelion cardigan.


The panama is knitted with simple lace pattern on 3 mm circular needle. It is decorated with two knitted leaves and pompom flower. I used my favorite sport/5-ply cotton yarn from Phildar in beautiful orange color. I am really happy with this project and my daughter with her new hat too! We had really great photo-shoot today.


I also wrote the knitting pattern for this hat. It can be purchased and downloaded from one of my pattern stores:

Ladybird Umbrella Case

8.5.15
There are so many dull and rainy days in the UK so my compact umbrella is my must have item in my handbag. I have decided to crochet a fancy umbrella case to brighten up these days. So, please welcome my new crochet project - Ladybird Umbrella Case. I really love this beautiful accessory. It makes me smile every time I find it in my handbag. It also a great toy for my little daughter. She really loves playing with it during our short walks around.





It was quick and fancy project. I used sport/5-ply cotton yarn from Lana Grossa and 3.0 mm hook. I used a black zipper as fastener on the back and put small amount of toy filler inside of each leg.



I also love this funny face. I crocheted the white part of eyes and used a tiny buttons for pupils. I embroidered eyelashes and mouth with a red thread.

Dandelion Cardigan

26.4.15
Today I would like to show my new spring project - Dandelion Cardigan. I designed this cardigan to match my daughter's beach dress and her Aster Flower Panama Hat. The knitting patterns for panama hat and cardigan are available from my pattern stores.

 

I'm really happy with the result. This simple lace pattern looks really great with this beautiful orange cotton yarn. I also used the matching orange button to decorate the cardi.


Although I made this cardigan to match my daughter's summer dress, I think it looks great with her Little Bell skirt I knitted for her last summer.


Dandelion Cardigan is a quick and fancy project. All parts of it are knitted back and forth on needles, then they are sewn together and then stitches picked up for neck and front bands. I used my favorite summer yarn Phil 3 from Phildar for my cardi.

Aster Flower Panama Hat

17.4.15
Summer is coming and it is getting hot in the UK. So, it is time for summer garments and accessories! Today I'd like to share my new knitted design - Aster Flower Panama Hat. I also wrote a knitting pattern for it.



This beautiful hat is knitted in the round with sport/5-ply cotton yarn in white color. I used Safran cotton yarn from DROPS. It is one of my favorite summer yarns.







The Aster Flower Panama is knitted with beautiful lace pattern and decorated with knitted flower in orange and two green leaves. I also made a jagged edge of panama's brim.
I think this panama hat would be a great accessory for my little princess this summer, especially during our summer holidays. I just need to shop around and find couple of beautiful matching dresses and sandals for her.
