Newborn Baby Crochet Sweater

It took me a while to make this newborn baby sweater. I used super fine (category 1, fingering) yarn and a small size hook, so the work was moving quite slowly. 

Also caring alone two yarns (blue and white) was an added challenge. It would've been easier to make it one color, but I don't think it will be this pretty. I really like how the blue and white stripes look. 

And this is my "baby" wearing his new sweater. It's a bit too big, but I'm so hopeful the "baby" will grow! *wink*

Baby Alpaca Wool Autumn Scarf

I made a super warm and cozy scarf/shawl using a baby alpaca wool. But the weather here in Nor-Cal is still summer-like. Hopefully cold days will arrive soon. I'm all ready!

Finished Measurements: 60 inches wide (not including fringe) and 21 inches long (not including fringe).

The pattern is available in my Etsy shop.

Blue Lace Baby Blanket

Here is a small blanket that I made for my doll.

It's very light and airy in texture.

I used fine (fingering, category 1) crochet yarn. Specifically, I used two balls of Woolike by Loops & Threads and a size E/4 (3.5 mm) crochet hook.

This is a very beautiful stitch that involves front post and back post double crochets. This stitch can be adjusted for many other crochet patterns.
