vase of daffodils

Well, the vase itself isn’t ‘small crochet’, but the crocheted flowers are 4″ each, so I’m calling it a Small Crochet project! I designed these because I can’t wait any longer for springtime to arrive:

If you’d like to make your own daffodils, I’ll add the pattern link into our sidebar, and the pattern is also up on my website: http://www.planetjune.com/blog/free-crochet-patterns/daffodils/

My seven year old son and six year old step-daughter want to start a band.  (The result of my son receiving an “I Can Play Guitar” from Santa for Christmas! LOL) They each want a beanie and a wristband, but I can’t seem to find patterns that I like.

Last time I tried to make a beanie it came out about 3 sizes too small even though I used larger yarn, a larger hook, and looser tension than the pattern required, so …:-)

Any ideas where I can find such patterns? Anyone have them that would be willing to share? They already picked out their yarns … Bernat Camoflage in blue for my son and pink for my step-daughter.

Thanks for any ideas in advance!!!!

Details… A Flower

Here, submitted for your viewing pleasure, is my newest tiny crochet.

This is a flower, created to prettify a sweater with poorly chosen colors, and it worked! The pattern is online somewhere, just a flower, but I switched colors for each round to get the multi-layer effect.

Happy Spring! (Or Fall, depending on your locale.) (Here’s the whole sweater, for those who wanted to see:click me!)
