Baby festive pom pom hat

This year was going to be the first christmas for my niece Gio...and I wanted to get her delivered something special and quite festive!!

I went shopping for baby festive clothes, got her a snowman jumper and some santa trousers..but I was willing to add a handmade touch... so I started looking for free baby patterns of elf hats or santa ones....

..when I came across this lovely simple long tail stripy hat pattern on A lemon dropp life blog ! I immediately felt in love with it! It was shown in red and white, and so I realized it.

I found it nicely festive but at the same time easy to wear all over the winter  :)

The pattern shown on the blog is very easy to follow, almost completely based on half double crochet stitches with a cute pom pom at the very end!

I have sent a box to my niece to Italy and I can't wait to receive pictures of baby Gio wearing the stripy hat :)

Taking the occasion to wish everyone lovely holidays, hope you enjoy the link to the pattern and try it out as it's very fast and easy to make!

Crochet Snowflakes Garland

A very simple and quick way to decorate your house for Christmas....a Snowflakes garland!!

I used the free snowflakes tutorial by Sarah London and it found it takes only about 5 minutes to make one of these snowflakes and then you can put them together as you wish and hung them around!!  

I loved the pattern, easy to follow and very quick to make!!! I believe you could also just make single snowflakes and leave them around the christmas table :)

If you were looking for a free snowflakes pattern I think this could be a good start!!

Have a lovely saturday
