baby cardigan

i really wanted to make a cardigan for my daughter so i google to see what i could find and found a really good tutorial and a very simple way of making it

 

and this is what i came up with ... the only problem is that it is for a new born... so after a sleepless night i found a way of making it for my nearly 11 month old ..... so that will be my next project

so some lucky person out their will be getting this cardigan for their daughter

loving the challenge

so making hats has become something natural for me i feel like i have been at it for years ..... well in fact i have been just crocheting for a little over three weeks and i`m loving it masha`allah

 

so as you would have see i have already made two hats for my 10 month old ... but even that wasnt enough so i decided to make another but not using the same stitch or the same type of wool

so i found another tutorial where u you use a half double crochet stitch instead of a single crochet stitch

now the lady that was doing the video was making a hat for a smaller child but i need it for my 10 month old so i read alot of the comments and learnt that you just increase the amount of stitches ... with that off i went and as i was going i would check to make sure that it would fit my daughter

in the video the lady goes as far as round 6 with a total of 48 stitches i increased it to the 11th row with a total of 72 stitches and just continued until it was long enough to fit her head

 

i also added a pom pom to the top of the hat and learned to crochet a flower so i made a small and larger one and add a button to the middle and attached it to the hat and added some ribbon around the edge

 

masha`allah it looks so cute and now i have my neighbour asking if i will make one for her daughter
