Spring Has Sprung

Hello! it's seems ages since I did a blog post and I'm really missing you guys I'm hoping to visit you and catch up with all your news just as soon I can.

It's been pretty manic here in the Crafty Corner because I received an email from one of the charities I support asking me if  I would make something for five year old twin girls so as usual when I get a request like this everything else stops so that I can concentrate on making something as quickly as I can.

Because Spring has supposedly sprung I decided to make two little Spring sweaters....

one in pink

and one in green


I really enjoyed making these little tops but then I think that making little girl things is always pleasurable.

Along with the tops I have made these little hats to go with them...


one in pink 
and one in green


with a simple spring flower to finish them off and then of course a little button to finish the flower off, you could go on and on couldn't you. :)


Along with the sweaters and hats I thought a scarf would be a good idea for our chilly Spring days...



I hope they have fun mixing and matching :)



As always when you make something for a specific age group you worry that the things you have made won't fit, I'm hoping that they do but if they don't then they will be given to other children in need.

Stats
Sweaters
I used Hayfield bonus yarn in shades cupid and petrol
Each sweater took 220 grams

Hats
I used the same yarn and each hat took 40 grams
The cute and simple spring flower was made using this pattern.



I used this leaflet for the sweater and hat pattern which I found very easy to follow although as always I had some size issues with the tension because I used different yarn to that which is recommended.

Information for the scarves coming soon.

I hope you are all having a great week!
