Well, I really like making things for kids!
I once made a stuffed giraffe -- I crocheted the pieces and stuffed and sewed them together -- of course, it may have been a big kid that got it as I donated it to a local hospital for their Christmas party for their long-term patients. Don't have a picture -- that was about 6 years ago.
But I have been making some winter clothing for kids to put in my etsy shop and to donate to an Annual Clothing Giveaway (which I will cover in another post later).
I had fun making this hat with 3 strands of yarn held together to make it bulky, warm and big enough for a kid:
The combination of colors in the yarn give a "woodsy" look and it is sort of in the shape of a Robin Hood hat. Here's the Etsy listing: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16940111
I also put together a sweater set for a 12 month old - a sweater, a hat and a pair of mitts (thumbless mittens) in a "flecked" baby pink:
I literally put it together -- using a chart for sizing the pieces and knitting it with a rib stitch for the cuffs, bottom and neckband and with stockinette stitch for the body of all pieces. Here it is on Etsy! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16568838
Here's some closeups:
It was fun to do -- and I do believe it is quite cute!!
I can make it in different sizes and different lengths and different colors and different fibers.
And, I know from personal experience that this type of yarn is warm, especially when it is knitted this way!!
Good for the cool/cold days coming!!
