A New Finished Object

I bought a couple of crochet patterns a while ago from a website called Just Crochet, where a lady named Heather sells her lovely patterns either in pdf format or as a printed copy. She has created some very pretty baby outfits & accessories. Heather also provides her international customers with conversion charts for hook sizes, crochet stitches & yarns. Which I needed because I get confused easily with all the different terminology but I am slowly getting used to some of the differences.

I bought this pattern JC29NB and this one JC22A. The second pattern was the one that I used for the beanie pictured below.

I made this using 8ply (sport weight) which is very different to the baby yarn suggested for the pattern. Considering I still don't feel completely confident reading & following patterns yet I thought that I would have a go at the pattern anyway & see what happened. I adapted though. I didn't like how the beanie gathered at the top ( to be honest I thought I did something wrong) so I extended it and made some decreases here and there to make it look like the beanies I made before.

I do love how the beanie turned out but it's more of a toddler size than a baby size. Now that I know I can at least read the pattern for the hat I might have a go at making something else from the booklet. Of course if I do you can be sure that I will post more pictures :D

Heather also has a Facebook page if you want to check out some more photos.
