So I constantly have her in mind whenever I feel the urge to get some toddler knitting/crochet projects started.
This recent project was sparked off by a conversation my mom and I had when we were mall shopping. My mom saw a poncho and commented that it is a very child-friendly keep-warm clothing item. Besides not having buttons to fuss with, there is also no need for the struggle to get the kid's arms into the item; unlike a sweater. And the coverage is sufficient.
Hence the idea of a capelet.
As usual, I have gone through the route of selecting a pattern, working it almost halfway through, then ripping it back entirely. I just wanted a pattern that had a bit more coverage (less lacey) and also more girlish.
Reason: Just simply because I wasn't satisfied with the way it looked. [Does that ever happen to any of you?]
So this was the resulting piece.
I had decided to finish off with a round of crochet flowers and those had the stamp of approval from my niece who comments that she "loves pink!"
Well, if you know what that means...
