The Pokémon Inspiration Part 4? 5? 10?!

IMG_7615My kids are ALWAYS asking me to make some new Pokemon inspired item for them.  Mummy, please make me a Pikachu hat or a Charmander doll.  I need more Pokeballs in different colours.  My friends want pokeballs too!!  So when my eldest lost his scarf/cowl at school I decided to whip this up for him.
Note: This pattern has not been tested by anyone other than me as of yet.  If you find any issues, please feel free to contact me and I will correct them.  

Optional idea Sew a piece of polar fleece half an inch thinner than the measured height of your cowl to line the inside to make it warmer and to help keep out the wind!

Cute Baby Cardigan

IMG_7363A friend of mine is having a baby girl and I wanted to make her something cute and dainty; it’s a girl after all!!!  I live in a house surrounded by boys, most of my clients request items for boys, and there are only little boys in my extended family, soooo…. when I heard my girlfriend was having a girl, I seized the opportunity to buy pink!!!!  Woo, pink!!  I looked around for a while for a super cute and dainty hat and I came across this lovely hat by Oombawaka Designs and it was appropriately named My Dainty Princess Hat.  I fell in love with the special stitch used to create the pattern.  I also thought giving just a bunch of hats was nice, but a matching hat and cardigan would be better.  So I took the special stitch used to create My Dainty Princess Hat and turned it into a cardigan.  This pattern has not yet been tested. If you find any errors please leave me a comment to let me know.  This pattern makes a cardigan to fit a baby 0-3 months old.
