Pregnant after a Loss

Knit or crochet projects?

In yet another attempt to think positively and keep my mind distracted...

Anyone want to share any knit or crochet patterns you are working on or have completed? I'm an intermediate knitter at best and beginner in crochet.

Re: Knit or crochet projects?

  • I'm so glad you asked this.  I'm decent with crochet, beginner in knitting and though I've crocheted at least one item for every friend's baby, I haven't done anything for my little one.  I'd like to do something but I'm coming up kind of blank.  I'm thinking of starting small with some little stuffed toy like some I've found at the Lion Brand website.

    The previous baby project I'm proudest of was the ducky blanket that I designed and crocheted for my friend's daughter 9 years ago.  It was a monster of a project but I was very happy and proud of the outcome.

  • I am working on crocheting a baby blanket. I actually started it while ttc a rainbow as a way to give me hope. It's really basic because I only know one stitch- not even sure what that stich is called! Reminds me, I better work on it some! As you can tell, I am really slow at it!

  • I am just finishing up a scarf that is 2 rows of single crochet and one row of double crochet. It is only my second project. Next I am going to make a few baby hats since this LO will need them. I just searched 'crochet baby hat pattern' and got a bunch of pages with pprojects at many levels.

    So did you just crochet without a pattern? That's impressive!

    I'm working on a simple cross-stich project for my LO.  It's my first attempt at cross stitch but I think it's going well so far.  It just makes me feel so happy to work on it and I will be so proud of it when its done :)

    fun! I'd love to see a pip when you are finished.

  • I'm no help. I send all my projects to my Mom to have her crochet for me. So far she is making another R2D2 hat, Boba Fett hat, and a Twi'lek hat for DD.

  • I have been working on this project for my baby: https://www.craftelf.com/Crochet_Half_Double_Crochet_blanket.htm

    It's crochet, but pretty simple and very pretty. I am a beginner too. It is taking me a while, but I am hoping to be done by the time my baby arrives!
