Poppy brooch

Poppy brooch

Originally uploaded by kittyboo crochet

A little poppy brooch, made by me, using Rowan Cashsoft yarn. Here is the (very rough and ready) pattern using UK terms:

Make 2.
Ch 6. SS into 1st stitch to form a ring.
24 dc into ring.
DC into each DC, increasing every other stitch to get 36 stitches.
1 ch [1 dc 1 tr 7dbltr 1 tr 1dc 1ss] 3 times with last ss into 1st ch.
Fasten off.
Join the two pieces.

For the centre I really just made it up as I went along. It’s a bit hard to describe but I basically made lots of loops and tied them together (a bit like making a tassle) then cut off the tops and stitched into the centre of the poppy.

Baby Sweater – Free Pattern

This is my first attempt at writing up a pattern so please excuse any mistakes! The pictures below show what the finished article should look like. I wasn’t sure how to describe some things – such as how to shape the neckline, but hopefully its understandable. If you experience difficulties, please post a comment and I’ll try to help. Anyhow, here goes….

Frilled Baby Sweater

Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly DK (50g) x 3
Hook Size: 4.00mm
Size: To fit a baby of approximately 3 – 6 months old.

Please note:
I use British crochet terms. For American terms, substitute tr with dc and dc with sc.

Stitch Guide:
Tr2tog Yo, insert hook into stitch, yo and draw through a loop, yo, insert hook into next stitch yo and pull through a loop, yo and pull through all loops on hook.

Back
Chain 47.
Row 1: 1 tr into 3rd chain from hook, 1tr into each chain until end. Turn.
Row 2: 2 ch (counts as 1 tr), 1 tr into each tr until end. Turn
Rows 3 – 33: Repeat Row 2.
Fasten off.

Front

Chain 47.
Row 1: 1 tr into 3rd chain from hook, 1tr into each chain until end. Turn.
Row 2: 2 ch (counts as 1 tr), 1 tr into each tr until end. Turn
Rows 3 – 26: Repeat Row 2.

Shape Neck.
Row 27: 2 ch. 1 tr into next 16 tr, tr2tog, 1 tr into next tr. Turn.
Row 28: 2 ch, tr2tog, 1 tr into each tr until end. Turn.
Row 29: 2 ch, 1 tr into each tr until last 3 stitches, tr2tog, 1 tr into next tr. Turn.
Row 30: Repeat Row 28.
Row 31: Repeat Row 29.
Row 32: Repeat Row 28.
Row 33: Repeat Row 29.
Fasten Off.

Rejoin yarn at opposite edge of front. Turn. Repeat Rows 27 – 33 but do not fasten off.
Sorry – not sure if I’ve explained this very well but you’re basically making a mirror image of the first half of the neckline.

Make Buttonholes
1 ch, 1 dc into each tr until end. Turn.
Next Row: [3 ch, ss into 1st of 3 ch, miss 1 dc, 1 dc into next dc] repeat until last but one stitch. 1 dc into last dc.
Fasten Off.

Sleeves (make two the same)

Chain 28.
Row 1: 1 tr into 3rd ch from hook, 1 tr into each ch to end. Turn.
Row 2: 2 ch (counts as 1 tr), 1 tr into each tr to end. Turn.
Rows 3 – 14: 2 ch, 1 tr into each tr until last but 1 stitch. 2 tr into last tr. Turn.
Rows 15 – 19: 2 ch, 1 tr into each tr to end.
Fasten Off.

Make-up

Place front and back together and join at shoulder on side without buttons. Fold Sleeves in half lengthways and place folds level with shoulders. Attach on either side and sew up seams. Sew up side seams. Sew on buttons to correspond with gaps in buttonhole edging.

Sleeve and Bottom Edging
You can do this before or after making up but I found it easier to do afterwards.

Work 4 dc into each tr stitch gap. Slip stitch into first dc.

Neckline Edging
Starting from buttonhole edging, work 4 dc into each tr stitch gap or stitch (I just worked in the stitches wherever there was space) all the way around the neckline, but not joining when you get back to shoulder with buttons on.
Weave in ends.
