This is the second thing I decided to crochet… Another newborn baby jumper. A very yellow newborn baby jumper… Possibly a little too yellow…
Turns out hoods are surprisingly easy to crochet. You just keep crocheting around the neck line until its long enough and then stitch it up at the top.
It’s 100% seamless… which is why I love crochet. With knitting you end up with so many seams, which can be rough on a newborn’s skin.You also have to finish all the separate pieces before you can sew it up and begin to see it’s shape. With crochet it is just a matter of re-attaching the wool to different parts of the jumper and it’s very quick to see the shape or size the finished project will be.
So… maybe I shouldn’t have used such a bright colour for a newborn…. and the crochet is still a little bit wonky…. but I like to think I’m getting better with every crochet project I do.
Practice makes perfect! Eventually…. unfortunately…. not quite yet.
