Huwelijkscadeautje / Small Wedding Gift

 
When attending a wedding I like to give something 'made by me'.
So, for a recent wedding I crocheted those Love Birds. They turned out really cute. 

The colours are based on the wedding invitation (at least the pink one).

 The pattern used is from Uccellino (Chubby Birds), although I did alter the belly part and I am not sure that the beaks are according to pattern. For eyes I just made crosses with black yarn instead of adding beads.

 
 
Patroon/ Pattern:
Chubby Bird Amigurumi - Uccellino
Garen/ Yarn: Mini - Wibra
Haaknaald/ Hook: 2,5mm



Alternative belly pattern:
-chain 4
-single crochet in 2nd chain from hook
-single crochet in next chain
-4 single crochet in last chain
-continue at back of chains: 1 single crochet in each chain, turn
-3x single crochet in each stitch, 2 single crochet in next 2 stitches, 3x single crochet in each stitch, turn.
-continue to correct size

Shirt - Burda 2014


Na een paar jaar in een bak te hebben gelegen is het shirt eindelijk af. De afwerking is niet helemaal zoals ik het van tevoren bedacht had (afwijkend van de Burda-afwerking), maar in dit geval vind ik dat niet zo erg. Het is belangrijker dat het af is.

Als ik het patroon nog een keer ga gebruiken (waarschijnlijk niet), laat ik de mouwen weg aangezien die niet mooi vallen. Vermoedelijk komt dit door de gerimpelde voor- en achterkant en rechte bovenkant.


Patroon: BurdaStyle 6/2014 #103
Maat: 38
Stof: tricot

After a couple of years in the WIP-basket, this shirt is finally finished. The inside is not as neat as I planned it to be, but I don't care about that much (at least not this time). It is more important that it is finally finished.

If I am ever going to use this pattern again, I will exclude the sleeves as I don't like their look. Probably because of the gathering at the front and back.
