New pattern and behind the scenes…

IMG_7181blogFirst of all, as this is my first post in 2014 – Happy New Year! 🙂 I hope you had wonderful holidays and I really hope that this year will be great for all of us!

So, here is the first pattern of this year – Hooded Cowl. Originally it was supposed to be without ears (and you can skip them as well, especially for adult size), but as Sophie’s big brother is really loving his Wolf Hat she absolutely wanted her hoodie to be like some animal too. Now she is saying that she is a small bear and is really happy with her new hat, and so am I.

One day we had a beautiful walk in our beautiful town – still decorated for Christmas and New Year, and I snapped all these photos. So you can see “behind the scenes” as well.IMG_7218blogIMG_7221IMG_7236IMG_7252IMG_7264IMG_7270IMG_7284IMG_7294The pattern for Hooded Cowl is available on Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy. On Craftsy today you can get it for special price – 3.50$!

Happy crocheting!
