Professional Shots

I want to show off a couple of my latest designs, shot by multi-award winning New Zealand photographer, Jane Trevathan of Photography by Jane.
She was kind enough to do a casting call for a sweet little newborn and photograph these cocoons for me so I have professional pics to use in my pattern listings.
Both these patterns, the Newborn Egg Cocoon (in cream) and the Knit-Look Egg Cocoon (in gray) are now available on Holland Designs.

Today's Project

I'm taking a break from designing to complete some custom projects. Today I made this rosebud baby set for a lady here in Auckland and took the chance to create some new listing photos for this pattern. The beanie is a modified version of my fascinator beanie - with accent stitching on the brim and a sweet little rosebud. :)
Next on the custom item "to do" list are a couple seamless cardis and a victorian shrug.

Fascinator Beanie

A friend recently asked me to make some beanies for her girls, so I am taking the opportunity to design some new hat patterns for my Etsy shop. Here is my Fascinator Beanie, which uses the same flower as the fascinator headwrap. Stay tuned for the next beanie design...coming soon. :)

Pattern includes sizes newborn up to 10 years.
Crocheted using 4-ply fingering weight yarn.
