Knit Sweater and Crochet Hats

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Hello friends.

I was recently visiting at my mom's house and she shared with me this knit sweater that she made.  My mom made this sweater to fit a child.  I told her that I loved the style, the yarn, and the stitching.  The yarn she used is green with small specks of different color yarn mixed in.

What really made me happy was that she told me that I could donate it to our knit/crochet sale that we have each fall at my church.

If you read this mom, I just want to say thanks for this lovely sweater.  Someone will be very happy wearing it!



I love this sweater and I hope to someday make one similar to this.  My mom is a very talented knitter and this is where I became fascinated by yarn many years ago.  My mom and aunt taught me how to knit one summer many years ago, but I can only knit scarves and cowls.  I will have to challenge myself to knit a sweater sometime.

Below are some crocheted hats I made that look almost like the same yarn my mom used on the sweater.  The yarn I used is not as heavy and thinner than the yarn my mom used .  I made two different styled hats and I like the hat I crocheted with the small flower.




The first crochet hat I made I'm not sure about what pattern I used for this since I found it on Pinterest.  I also added the lower bottom part of the hat using the single crochet stitch.  The flower pattern can be found HERE.  The yarn I used for the hat was worsted weight yarn given to me to use by our crochet/knit groups stash yarn we have.  There was no label on the yarn.  You can use whatever yarn you like and the crochet hook is a US size I.  

The second crochet hat seen above to the right is made in a different style for a child.  The pattern to make this hat can be found HERE.

The hats I crocheted are for a child and I found them not too difficult to make.

I hope I've inspired you to crochet a hat and have fun making one.

Have you crocheted or knitted anything lately?


Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of the week and weekend!  Jess and I will see you all back here on Monday for our Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up.

Thanks everyone and enjoy!

  4. I know from talking to friends who knit progressing from a hat to a sweater isn't as easy as it sounds. There are a whole bunch of techniques involved but I'm sure you could do it Julie. Maybe spend a day or two at your moms and have her help?

  5. Your mom has made such a beautiful sweater, and how nice of her to donate it to your church sale. Either of your hats would make a nice set with the sweater. I've never knit a sweater either ... I think I have a confidence issue when it comes to knitting garments ;)

  14. What a nice donation from your Mom! My mother was a phenomenal knitter, making actual suits (lined skirts and tops)for herself. I could never knit like that either! I am happy to make a simple scarf or shawl.
