Happy Thursday, er'body! Sorry I missed last week, not that anyone is waiting on the edge of their seat for the next pattern, but it was bound to happen sooner or later. I'm happy to be here now to share this next pattern with yall! This pattern is called Pink Daisy Set and can be found in the Summer Issue 1983 of Crochet Magazine. This Bonnet Pattern is in FOUR PARTS all posted on my Flybii, so I will link each part with my explanations of the pattern, starting with the Bonnet. You will find complete pattern at the end of this blog entry. First, you must know I used Cascade Yarns Cherub Baby series yarn with 3.50mm Size E hook because I did not have the 3.25mm Size D hook that the pattern calls for.
You will first crochet all the Motifs. Once you get all your squares crocheted like in Picture 1, you will whip stitch them together-as you can see in Picture 2 so you can crochet the body part of Sacque until this part of the bonnet measures 4.5", which are simple crochets of alternating rows of double crochets with one row skipping one stitch, chaining one and double crocheting into the next stitch-all the way across-shown in Picture 3. So easy!
Once your bonnet measures 4.5"-as seen in Picture 3 from first group of photos, you will then fold bonnet in half and whip stitch along the back, so you can crochet the edging, as you can see starting Picot Stitch all around in Picture 1 in this second group of photos. After it's all sewn up, it explains how to crochet a draw string to be fed around the base of the bonnet-as shown in Picture 2 here of this group of photos. If you're not sure how to feed your draw string through your work, I usually take a larger hook, grab the draw string and feed it through every other double chain space.
As you can see in the last picture, the final product is just precious. It is light and airy yet still so very soft and cozy- super perfect for Spring!
I am not the best at explaining but you can find the full pattern here with a few helpful reminders/hints as you begin to create this little gem. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me-I'd be happy to help! firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next week... or the next.. I do hope you have a wonderful Croch-day!
