    Hugs & Kisses 2 Piece Outfit

    Hugs & Kisses 2 Piece Outfit

    Hello, all my Country Willow Designs loyal friends.  Today I am excited to offer you this beautiful Hugs & Kisses 2 Piece Set. This pattern is intended for a Newborn to 3 months. You all don’t know, but I am expecting my 2nd grandchild at the beginning of June.  Not sure of the gender, my daughter wants to be surprised. I don’t care what he/she is as long as it is healthy. I do love using the treble X stitch. It makes for beautiful texture and makes the top breathable. I used I Love This Cotton for this because of the comfort and softness.

    Free Crochet Pattern-Three Season Poncho

    Three Season Poncho

    I have finally completed a project.  I want to introduce the Three Seasons Poncho. This free poncho pattern is made of #2 fine cotton.
     
    It is very lightweight and you can wear this Summer, Fall, and Spring. Myself I could wear the Three Season Ponch in the winter as a coat. I hate being warm. What about you?  When would you wear this?

    Cut tulle in lengths of 21 inches. Add tulle

    I added tulle to every other ch 2 sp, skipping the first one.  You can use 1 piece or more depending on your likes.  I used one piece of tulle. Use the Lark Foot Knot to assemble the tulle.

     

    Add 4 buttons to the inside of the dress.  The buttons should be located just above where the ribbon will be.  I added 1 button on each side and one in the center front and center back. I used the empty first 2 chs as a buttonhole.  Here on the other side, you can adjust the fit.

    Weave ribbon in and out and tie in a bow and you are finished.
