Cute Little Dungarees

First of all I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments about my Poncho, it was such fun to make, I recommend everyone should make at least one poncho, you will see how simple and quick they are to do.
I'm having problems with my thumb joints at the moment it really hurts when I write or crochet so I thought I would try some knitting for a change and I have to admit it didn't hurt quite so much.  My family think I'm having problems because I'm crocheting too much but I think it's because of the amount of paper work we have to do at work these days, it can't be because of the crochet, I refuse to believe it is anyway, can you imagine a life without crochet, doesn't bear thinking about.


 I really enjoyed making these little Dungarees and because it was Jubilee weekend I thought it only right to make them with this patriotic coloured yarn, I love the way they have turned out.  My daughter has nabbed them already and wants me to put them in my future granny drawer ha ha.  These little pants took me three days to make on and off of course and I couldn't help thinking they would have been done in half the time if they had been crocheted and so I am in the process of making a dungaree crochet pattern, I have never done this before and it may not work but if it does I will share it with you.
This is the link to the knitting pattern.
The wool was Robin paintbox yarn it's acrylic and lovely to work with.

  2. I agree; it can't be because of crochet. Definitely too much paperwork.
    Your dungarees are so cute; looking forward to a crochet pattern if you're able to convert it.
    Blessings,

  5. Hello Linda,
    I don't believe for a minute crochet is the culprit and reason for your hands aching on the contrary my doctor told me doing knitting and crochet keeps arthritic pains at bay. My Gran and mother had arthritis in their hands and crochet didn't get rid of the pain but it stopped their hands from crunching up and eased the pain.
    I love the dungarees....the colours a great idea.

    Many thanks Linda for your comments and information on my last post I have already had a look in these online shops and now I have to work out if it is cost effective.

    Amanda :-)

  9. Those Dungarees are just gorgeous.
    And you are right life without hooking or knitting doesn't bear thinking about. I have been told recently to stop - but I'd rather a little discomfort for all the satisfaction of creating beautiful things.
    Enjoy the hooking(and knitting)
