A dog’s day out


I know it’s been a while since I posted my projects but rest assured I worked on quite a few πŸ˜€

I’ve made some hats and scarves for my dad, friends and family (including myself), my first Raglan style dress and my first dog pullover. I’ll post soon some of them.

My sister came home for the Holidays with her cute little pup Wasabi and asked me if I can whip up a sweater or pullover for the little one because it gets really cold in the winter and freezes the dog’s little butt over πŸ™‚ So, I did just that. Although it was a first for me, It turned out pretty well, I think. I’ve made a knitted ribbed collar (2×2) for 10 cm or so and then I switched to crochet, worked for a few rounds (HDC),Β  placed markers where the front legs begin, made the holes with the help of the chain stitch then joined for continuing in the round, started decreases to fit the body, worked straight for a few centimeters (I used the “model” as you can see below to check if it fits). I made the back longer and the front shorter for obvious reasons πŸ˜€ and finished with a little strap for the tail. That was it, really easy.Β  Of course it needed testing out on the field so it was a success πŸ™‚ I hope you like it.

Chain, chain, chain


I found myself inspired to do a chain stitch poncho one day as I was browsing through various pictures of fashion crochet clothing and I came up with this simple, warm, fun to work poncho. I made itΒ  from two separate long pieces joined at the top where I left a space for the head. I also added, as you can see, a big crochet rose and that was it.Β  I like to wear it off the shoulder over tank tops or long sleeve blouses. Who’s cold, now, huh? πŸ˜€

I love music and the instant I imagined this project a song came to my mind. I’ll share it with you, enjoy.
