Pattern Review- Crocheted Tanktop and GIVEAWAY-- CLOSED

I bet you didn't even know that I crocheted!  ;0)  I remember the first time I showed my grandma a crocheted afghan I had made for her.  One of the first things she told me was that now I needed to learn to knit because it looks more professional.  I love it how grandmas are the only people in the world who can tell it like it is and totally get away with it! 

But in some ways she was completely right.  And I have a hard time finding patterns that aren't afghans that look really great.  That is why I was so excited when I found this cute little pattern from Leila and Ben.  It looks adorable-- even though it is only crocheted!  Don't you think?

Pattern Format:  pdf Pattern

Sizes Included: Girls 12 Months- 6T

What I liked about the pattern:  I comes together easily.  It was easy to understand.  And it is just too cute.

Anything I would change:  Nope!

I also crochet and don't knit. Yeah, it is cute and you're right about it being hard to find that sort of thing for crochet.

A for adorable!

I knit for years because at about age 9 I asked a 'granma' type neighbor to teach me to crochet, and she said "you'll never be able to learn because your left-handed!"

I was 24 before I figured out she was wrong - although my stitches are 'backward' - and everyone has loved every gift I have crocheted for them!

that is so cute! I like both knit and crochet...but crochet is definitely quicker, and easier to stop and start (important with little kiddies in the house!)

I don't know how to crochet, but I will learn if it means I can make that adorable hat.

Love, love, love the pattern! Wouldn't it be fun to win it and size it up for a grown-up?

queenbeaz said...

I crochet but only know the stitch my friend taught me in college, I can't read a pattern! LOL I've been meaning to learn more stitches though, so maybe this will be the motivation. Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

I totally missed this post until now. What a great combination of yellow, red and white. I can crochet, but only in straight lines. I might have to try this one.
