I felt the need to craft this morning as I haven't really done anything for over a week AND I bought some nice pink baby yarn intending to make some booties for my cousin's baby (I think she's due to arrive in 6 weeks) I couldn't find a bootie pattern I liked, but i think i might play about and see if I can come up with something as this bonnet has turned out absolutely lush, I think it has anyways, but I could just be feeling proud of myself for making something without a pattern
anyhow, onto the pics cause that's why you're here  Tongue


laid flat on my knee, see the square?


3/4 angle to show off the nice scalloped edge


and a gratuitous shot because i like it Grin
the 2nd pic is probably the closest colour-wise

I did the join-as-you-go thing with the squares, so much easier than making my 4 squares then joining them all together (especially when I have absolutely NO clue where my darning needle is Tongue)

I love this!  It is so pretty.   The color you picked out is just perfect for the design.  May I ask where you got the pattern?  Your cousin's baby will look so cute in it!  Thanks for sharing it with us.

it's just 4 granny sqaures, 3 rounds each (they're about 3 1/2 inches across) joined together as i went so 3 are joined in a strip, then the 4th square is joined on 3 sides to the tops of the other 3 squares, so it curves round, you know what i mean? then sc around (2 in each corner) then
Chain 3, 2 dc in same space, skip next 2 sc, (3 dc, chain 1, 3 dc) in next stitch, *skip next 3 sc, (3 dc, chain 1, 3 dc) in next st repeat from * almost all the way across, skip next 2 sc, 3 dc in next stitch, chain 1, 3 dc in next stitch (this should be at the other corner) skip next 2 dc, dc most of the way across the back, skip next 2 sc, 3 dc in next stitch, chain 1, sl st in top of beg chain
then i sc-ed across the back
then a chain of 45 at each corner for ties and it's all done
does that make sense? if not i'll try and write up a pattern a bit better later on

I feel a bit stupid now, but I don't really get the construction... so it's like a dice, with two open sides then?
