Baby Hat done in Raspberry Stitch

Baby Jane modelling the Raspberry Hat 3-14-2011



Just learned to do the raspberry stitch by watching UTube...will run the crocheted cord through the brim of the hat so Mommy Kim can adjust it to fit Emily's head size. Emily is my great niece!

Bottom picture is finished hat...sitting beside needle felted animals!

slipper pattern(easy pattern) WITH BIG CUFFS

See previous blog for pattern...I added the 10 extra stitches THEN added 20 more to each end to make these cuffs. (total of 30 extra stitches to each end of the triangle heel) The extra 20 make the fold-down cuffs.
VERY comfortable.
