FO gifts

I forgot to brag blog about these FOs that I made to give on our recent road trip. I made both of them in Hyderabad. So here they are:

This is another skinny scarf, made with some novelty yarn that I bought in Delhi last year. It was an unfinished bolero in its previous life. I made it for my niece. Just ch to the desired width, and then dc (American) in each stitch across. The beauty (!) of the scarf lies in the yarn itself.

I made two caps for my cousin and nephew. One of them I forgot to take a photo of, but it was made from this pattern at Crochet Garden here in an ugly green yarn that was one of the only colours I was able to buy in Hyderabad. Why our people like to make(buy) yarn in ugly primary colours is beyond me. I changed the brim a bit to make it fit my *sense* of symmetry.

UPDATED: For Mimi, look at this post for a picture of the hat I made from the same pattern but in a different colour. The brim here follows the original pattern, though.

Anyway, this other cap I made from this pattern, (I can’t find the link online….!!!) in my famous patchwork yarn from Delhi, very soft to touch. I like this pattern very much, it works up very nicely, and the ribbed brim is cool!

Sorry for the blurry quality of the pics!

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.

  1. Hi Swapnae, I hope you post a pic of the hat you made from crochet garden pattern (winterhat). I think I’ll make that too for my sister. Your other hat is nice too, I hope you share the link to that as well 🙂
