Pattern for Annette’s Beanie!

Svenska här

Now we have winter in Sweden and the last days have been really cold, like -20 degrees Celcius (-4 degrees Farenheight) so it is really time for warm and cozy hats and beanies.

The other day I saw this really cute hat at All About Ami’s blog, and I loved it!

And since I hade the perfect yarn just lying around I decided to give it a try! But I soon realised I didn’t really care for the visible join in the back, and I wasn’t too fond of the edging either.

So I tried to make my own version and was so happy with the result I had to share the pattern with you!

I loose my keys all the time. So when I still had yarn left over after making my Sunburstbag and my toiletrybag I decided to use it to make a fairly large key holder to help prevent my keys from running away.

I had seen such a qute owl made for a baby decoration by Svarta Huset. I made just the owl skipping some rounds to make it a bit smaller.

Owls and balls decoration for baby carriage by Svarta Huset!

I wanted an owl for a project and found some really qute ones in this post, by very talented swedish blogger Annika hwo runs the blog Svarta Huset.

I wanted to share my project with you and asked her if I she would allow me to translate the pattern for the owl. She agreed. lucky for us!

The owl I made comes from a beautiful decoration for baby carriages. After some thought I realised I have to translate the whole decoration by Svarta Huset or you would miss out!

I will show you my project in a separate post.

I cannot stress enough, the pattern below is not by me, it is by Annika at Svarta Huset! I merely have translated it to english, using her original pictures. All credit for the beautiful design belongs to Annika!
