Woolen Vest with Collar and Ribbing

Looks like snow is keeping away for this winter season. So far the weather was pretty good compared to last year winter.

This time I just thought of making a Vest with Wool. I have used linked dc for most part of the vest with dc ribbing for the ends and collar with sc sts.  This can be made for boys or girls, and is best for the winter season to be used as layering with other Jackets.

Green and White Striped Sweater

Yes it is time for some baby boy outfit. This sweater in green and white stripes is good combination for the little ones. This jacket is worked from bottom to top with seams just for shoulders. Rest everything is worked as just one piece. This one is made with out sleeves.  Adding sleeves to this is just very easy. But I felt it looked better without sleeves. Will make another one with sleeves next time.
I made this as a gift for friends baby. I also made a knitted beanie in green and white stripes to go with this. But just missed to take the pictures of it. :(

If you would like to make this sweater I have added the pattern to my online store @

Crochet & Knit Top

This top is worked with Crochet & Knitting.
The Knitting bodice gives it a lot of stretch and room to grow. So this can be used for longer period.

This is worked as one piece. It is crocheted from Neck to Arm hole opening, Rest knitted. The bottom edge is ribbed to give a better finishing. The antique finish buttons give it a Vintage look. This is my first design combining crochet & knitting. I loved it. I have also made this Knitted beanie to match with it.

This is for sale in my  store @
