My good friend Bianca is expecting her second baby within the next month. She already has a little boy and the new baby is going to be a little girl. It's always fun making teeny little things so I went ahead and crocheted a hat and slippers for the baby to be.
I started out with soft wool in a strong pink colour and began crocheting a pattern that I'd found online. Unfortunately that pattern was working out way too small, even for a newborn, so I went ahead and free-styled it into something that I thought was a more realistic size. The design is a very simple shell pattern which gives loads of texture. For added interest, I made a contrasting stripe in charcoal grey. The booties were entirely my own design, based on the hat. They are grey with a grey and pink shell pattern on the top to match the hat. No real pictures, just this one from my cell phone.
I hope they fit little Mila when she arrives!
