Waah… alhamdulillah.. another finished project again! This is my first time making a dress 🙂 hihihi..
This dress is for 0-3 months old baby girl.. i am happy with my first attempt..
Using only 1 ball of Simge Pink and 3.5mm Clover Hook.. to my suprise, I just did this in 2 days without hurting and stressing my fingers at all. Ups…. but now I need to continue knitting my vest again.. hihihi… just curi-curi masa to crochet this dress and will keep it for myself :p
Sorry that lately I couldn’t write long like before.. just too busy with my work.. hopefully, I can find time to share more interesting thing about knitting/crochet in the near future. InsyaAllah..
Thank you for hopping by!
May Allah swt bless us all

Thank you for shopping with us 🙂 And we are very sorry for the late shipping lately due to some reasons that could not be avoided. Therefore, we decided to do shipping every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Any inquiries, do not hesitate to contact us ok? 🙂
Alhamdulillah… after almost 2 weeks.. I finally done with my first vest requested by Kak Natasha 😀 ( I did my best to gain a correct gauge for 2 years old baby boy.. hopefully this will fit on him! 🙂 . Thank you for trusting me in this! ) insyaAllah..
As you see.. this is a mix of knitting & crochet.. At first, I referred to a pattern since this is my first time making a vest.. but then I started to ignore and just followed my heart.. knit and knit and knit.. and crochet! and heya! done!
Alhamdulillah.. I’m glad that I enjoyed both knitting and crochet. Both have their own advantages ( i prefer not to look at the disadvantages as both are special) xD
Using Magic Merino.. this is how it turns out.. awesome colour for a baby boy, don’t you think so?! Well.. let’s start with second vest now 🙂
In knitting, written stitchpatterns include punctuation such as commas, asterisks, and brackets (or parentheses). The punctuation in knitting instructions mean more than you may think, however.
Here’s a punctuation translation for written stitch patterns:
Commas (,) separate single steps. The instruction “Sl 1 wyif, k5” tells you to slip a stitch with the yarn on the front side of the work, and then to knit 5 stitches as normal (meaning you have to move the yarn to the back before knitting, even though the instructions don’t tell you to).
An asterisk (*) indicates that whatever follows gets repeated (rep). For example, the instruction “K1, * sl 1, k3; rep from * to last st, k1” means that you knit 1 stitch, then you work the stitches between the asterisks (slip 1 stitch and knit 3 stitches) over and over until you reach the last stitch of the row, which you knit.
Brackets [ ] or parentheses ( ) function much like the asterisks, except that you’re repeating a series of stitches a specified number of times. For example, the instruction “* K5, (p1, k1) twice, p1; repeat from * to end of row” means that, after you knit 5, you purl 1/knit 1 two times, followed by another purl 1, and then you repeat this entire sequence across the entire row.
Written instructions give you row-by-row directions for a single repeat (rep). Here’s an example of a stitch pattern in written form:
Translation:On the first row (the right side is facing you on the first row in this pattern), you knit 2 stitches, purl 2 stitches, knit 2 stitches, purl 2 stitches, and so on to the end of the row. On the next row (wrong side facing now), you begin by purling 2 stitches, then knitting 2 stitches, purling 2 stitches, knitting 2 stitches, and so on to the end of the row.
Alhamdulillah.. got another chance again to post my latest project. Lately, I’ve been enjoying crocheting hats so much.. why? because it’s faster than knitting xD hehe..
What do you think of the attached button? 🙂 Hehe.. I am not sure if my sister will love it… 🙁 but still I don’t care and sew it xD hhuhuh…
This is how it looks like from the side view. this hat is actually for children. Guess.. the yarns I’m using must be thicker than the original pattern, hence, it turns out to be as adult size. This yarns are from Bravo and Sirdar brand.
What do you think of this hat? I hope my sister will like it this time..
Thank you for hopping by and thank you to all of you who always visit Da’Knit 😀
Assalamualaikum to all da’knit’s visitors.. alhamdulillah.. I got a chance to post another entry today. Just now I was trying to experiment this rainbow yarn like the picture above (which is going to be a hat soon…. 🙂 ) and the colour did turns out sweet and pretty, isn’t it?
This yarn is bulky, bulky than the daiso yarn…. using 6.mm hook .. and also, you can use with 6.5mm or 7mm hook too.. but it is soft and really really nice to feel .. Experimenting different yarns are very enjoyable.. 🙂
This hook is really nice and comfortable to use.. The yarns doesn’t slip of easily from the hook during crocheting.. and the shape of the hook is really i can say, one of a kind xD so unique! This hooks is good for beginner too. Besides that, the handle is larger, and therefore more comfortable, so you can avoid straining your hand and fingers when crocheting.. The best part of this hooks is that, the yarn slides nicely and you won’t have trouble scratching your yarn. 🙂
