Uncharted Territory

on August 18, 2012

Well, I recently embarked on a new adventure in crochet.  At least, for me.  I made my first wearables.

You might remember my stash from Hobby Lobby included these gems

My mom found the Candycorn colorway on clearance and bought 2 skeins thinking I could make something with them for Halloween.  Well, I searched the net and finally found a pattern, which of course required another skein of the Candycorn and one of orange.  I worked nice and slow on the project, making sure all my stitch counts and measurements were correct, and produced these, my Candycorn Tunics

I am so thrilled with them!  The pattern I used was a freebee from Bernat and it was so simple and relaxing to hook.  I can’t wait until the fall so my girls can wear these cute little tops with some leggings, but for now you all will have to settle for this sneak peak

I snapped a couple of pictures when I tried them on for size.  Don’t the girls look absolutely adorable!   They will certainly be the hit of any fall activity we attend!

Until next time, have a happy, hectic, handmade day!
