Mini Knit-look collection – easy crochet technique!

Mini Knit-look collection – easy crochet technique!featured

I am happy to present my mini collection of crochet knit-look patterns!

I love knitted hats and mittens, but honestly, I don’t like to knit them. Like with socks. The texture is wonderful, the fit is great, but the process… even magic loop doesn’t save me.

So, I thought I would better find a way how to imitate that look using crochet techniques I know. I used this one in the past and there are several old knit-look patterns in my shop. But I am very happy to present you these new ones!

The mini collection includes 4 patterns – Knit-look Beanie and Mittens, Knit-look Bonnet and Knit-look Poncho-Pullover. All of them have this nice knit texture and look. The stitch I used for these patterns is quite unique, but no slip stitches or FP or BP stitches are involved, if you were worried about that! 🙂

The first pattern is for Knit-look Beanie. I just love how it turned out! It really looks knit and the texture is marvelous! For little kids, I suggest to add some little ears, but for teens and adults – pompon will work better! 🙂

Then I made matching mittens – Knit-look Mittens! In general, for myself, I don’t like completely matching sets of accessories, and that’s why I added a contrasting color cuff. Probably, I would even prefer to make a pair for myself in a different color, but the one which complements the color of the hat.

Then, for little ones, comes Knit-look Bonnet! I absolutely adore kind of vintage look of bonnets worn by little ones.
With this pattern, you will actually learn an extra technique – how to work fhdc, my version of this stitch. This stitch is used for the chainless foundation. It is superelastic, fun to make and can be used in many different projects. In this pattern it was used for a cord, so you’ll be able to skip it in case if you’ll find it complicated, which I don’t think will happen.

And the last, but not least is for Knit-look Poncho-Pullover! The texture of this garment is really nice and knit alike. The trick I used to avoid stiffness of the fabric was by using lighter yarn (DK) for a body part but adding a strand of brushed alpaca to achieve warmness and extra coziness.
