My Fall Crochet Projects
As the evenings have started to turn chilly here, I wanted to get started on some fall crochet projects. Here are the three I’m working on—
1. For Penelope
I made this same hat in the infant size last year, and I was really happy with how it turned out. It comes together pretty quickly, and the pattern is easy to follow. The Bernat Baby Blanket yarn I chose this time is sooooo soft. I can’t wait to finish it and see if I can keep it on her head long enough to snap a photo. :) She’s an expert at removing hats.
2. For Finn
I got Finn a red winter coat (because red is his favorite!) so I went with a neutral gray for the cowl. I think this is going to be really cozy and easy for him to get on and off as we head out the door for school.
3. For Myself
I’ve actually completed these already, and it was a great learning opportunity. I haven’t made anything that required a few stages of construction, so it was really interesting to work through this one. However, I followed the pattern closely, but it still seems like I ended up with two right mittens, so I’m not sure what happened with that. I’m hoping it doesn’t matter too much once I wear them a few times. I also realized I need to work on getting my seam to be a little less noticeable. It’s particularly obvious on these. Overall, though, for a pair of warm, fun mittens, I’m happy with how they turned out!
After these, I’m hoping to turn my attention to some Christmas projects. I’d love to make some crochet star ornaments. Are you working on any craft projects this fall? I’d love to hear!
