Hat and Cowl


The hat and cowl patterns are from Crocodile Stitch Fashions : Amazon.com

For the cowl: I used the neck warmer pattern in the book and made it till the length I wanted, then sew the first and last rows together to make the cowl.

Tudor Rose Necklace

My son has Tudor Banquet at school tomorrow. He would like to have a jewellery to go with his costume. I crocheted this Tudor Rose necklace for him.

I used metallic yarn to crochet around plastic rings to make a chain.

Cute little bunny Amigurumi

A cute little bunny doll.

I wrote down the pattern while I made it, but the sheet is gone - missing. Perhaps I'll make another one and write it out again.
