Stuff for my Mini Doll

I had some worsted weight cotton one day, and I wanted to spoil a doll of mine, so here we go:

Pretty little cape and hat. The hat was made sort of like a human hat in the round; the cape started out as a chain of 10 and grew with some creative increases.

Also, I thought I'd make her a blankie.

Ribbon Scarf

Hey! Been a long time! Just checking in to show off my latest creation, which isn't anything great:

A friend of my mom's requested a ribbon scarf, so here it is. I just made it from the label pattern, even though I made it slightly wider ... which is funny, because it's not terribly wide at all.

Another shot. This makes the colors look so poor.

Contain Yourself

Dad ties flies and works with lots of tiny things, so I made him two containers to put stuff in. I made them shallow so he could see in them easily while he was working. Both are worked with an F hook in my cotton yarn of choice, Peaches and Cream.

For the bowl, I altered this pattern. I think I only did through round 7 or 9 before going on and sc in each stitch to build up the sides.

The box is so simple. All you do is crochet a square, then go around the edges with a sc in each stitch (or end chain). At the end, for security, dec at the corners.

Hats

Looking for a really good simple hat pattern? Allow me to make a suggestion. I noticed all the boys at college think they're cool when they wear such hats, so I made one for David so he'd be cool too. I made it with the directions to make an extra big one, 'cause David has a big old head. Turns out I actually made it TOO big. I honestly did not know such a thing was possible. He rolled it up and made it fit, though, so yaay.

Mom's Birthday Shaw

So Mom bothered me forever to make her a gray shaw like the one I made.

For reference, the one I made was CrochetMe's design in Red Heart Symphony, minus the blo stitch. I just did mine straight hardcore crochet.

A little more than two skiens of charcoal Homespun later, I was able to give mom this for her birthday:
