      Kiwifruit Beanie


      The fuzzy brown/grey wool used in the Hayley-Bear hat got me thinking about kiwifruit so here’s my next attempt at a themed beanie. I haven’t decided if I like it or not yet and I may have to have another go at capturing the likeness of the kiwifruit.

      It’s hard to give a pattern for this one as it involved random choices of stitch, colour and spike-itude and I didn’t write anything down as I did it.

      Thankyou to balloonie the balloon for modelling this creation for me.

      UPDATE: Attempt #2 now included. No pattern for this either.

      Non bootie crochet projects


      Over the past couple of months I’ve been trying my hand at non-bootie crochet projects aswell. These are mainly still baby related as they’re nice, small projects that keep my interest long enough to get finished. I’ve also made a couple of grownup hats. Some projects I’ve made from free patterns on the interwebs (URLs for these are listed in the description for each item), the rest were crochet-as-you-go sorta things.
