Hello again! As promised, here is the FULL/COMPLETE PATTERN called "Perfectly Pink" found in the June 1993 issue #39 of "Hooked on Crochet!" Magazine from my previous blog post. Once again...
Materials needed for this Project:
If you love creating from patterns, you can make a pair of booties in no time at all. Click the pictures for steps described in the captions.
Now that your perfect little booties are done... time to go on to the bonnet. After the 15th row of the bonnet, you will then proceed to create Rows 19-30 which is the texture of the slanted shell stitch. Once you have finished Row 30, which is the spaces for your yarn tie and/or ribbon, you will then whip stitch the opening together. (click the 2nd photo above.)
I chose to use Poms as a finishing touch, but you can use ribbon too! I will tell you if you do chose to use ribbon... you will ONLY NEED 1 SKEIN of the Loops & Threads Woolike Yarn. At $2.99/per skein, WE CAN NOT GO WRONG, my friends! I just bought 12 skeins myself! And there are so many beautiful colors that I had never seen at Michael's! I have posted a lot about Cascade Yarns Cherub Baby, which I do still love. However, if you're looking for your yarn to go a very very long way... L&T WY is very similar in texture/feel to CY. I love them both so much! I highly recommend both of these yarn brands because they are the best to me.
Please remember if you make any of the patterns posted here on my blog, I would love to see them! Feel free to tag me, mention me in a comment, or use the hashtag #sewsorose. Most importantly, if you have any questions.. feel free to DM on Instagram, FB, twitter or email!
Until next time!
Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer.
