Baby set for winter…..

This lovely little set is sized for a newborn and due to be shipped off to South Africa for a very special friend who will soon become a Granny for the first time.  Such exciting times call for a special little gift and as they are about to enter winter this seemed an appropriate gift.

The beautiful little baby cloche is from a pattern on Etsy which you can download by following the link.

The matching booties are my own design and one of these days I will finish off typing up the instructions and add them to the blog.

I find that the only problem with variegated yarn is that when you project is so small you can easily be caught out with each of the items being completely different colours – as we have here!  These will have to be worn as a set otherwise people will think that they have mismatched them.  I love this pattern because you start at the top of the cuff and crochet in once piece around and around without breaking the yarn.  Then all you have to do at the end is stitch the sole closed and roll over the top – easy peasy!  Repeat.
