Unit weight: 100 grams (3.53 ounces) x 2 skeins (A color & B color)

Gauge: 10 sts of HDC = 2 inches for 4.00mm size of crochet hook. I am using 4.00mm size of crochet hook for the top, and 4.50mm for the skirt. No gauge for skirt as you can use any size for the skirt.

Chest measurement: 19” inch

Crochet hook size 4.00 mm & 4.50 mm

TIPS: This size is made for 19” inch length of front chest (6 – 12 months old). If you need to make a smaller size or a bigger size than this, you just have to reduce 2 or 3 sts from each section (front/back/sleeve) or add 3/4 sts for bigger size than this and start crocheting in the same manner as the instruction below while the skirt’s number of stitches will also change according to your final number of stitches (even number + 2 sts)

Attach a button and sew it neatly. Please refer picture below.  (25 sts + 10 chain). After done, weave in any left yarn and tidy it nicely :). Tada! Done!

20140503_104106Final touch (this is an optional)
Usually, crocheting/knitting with acrylic yarns will produce fuzzy on the surface of the project. Sometimes the texture comes out a bit stiff and scratchy. This doesn’t mean your project has ruined. With a little technique, we can turn the project into fabulous handmade. So, what I mostly do:
1. After finish, I’ll use lint remover to remove any hairy that looks annoying to me as much as I can do. It is very impossible to remove them completely unless you do the “Killing Acrylic” method, which, useful only on certain projects. And I don’t suggest that!

20140503_1050212. Since I learnt how to “steam blocking”, most of my project will be blocked with steam iron. Steaming and blocking your project especially for someone like me who use acrylic in most of my project, will help the project to be softer, fluffy, and less fuzzy also, not itchy! However, again, make sure you don’t KILL your project or otherwise, it will turn into your worst nightmare! :O

20140503_105739

At last, after blocking and dry, it’s time to wash!

Don’t hesitate to throw your project in the washing machine cause most of acrylic yarns are best to wash with washing machine. I’ll put them inside the net and pour a little softener. Then dry it using a hanger or just dry them flat on the table. Once dry, you will be amazed to see your project turn out just nice and beautiful.

Last but not least, thank you for trying out my pattern. This pattern is very simple, once you do, it will be so addictive to make more! 🙂

Please and do share your project using this pattern with me at my Ravelry = Snowhitery. Let me know how you think! You can also put flowers, button or ribbons to make it looks cuter! Let your imagination run wild <3

****
Note: Please contact me if you found any error with this pattern. I am not responsible for the result you gain by using my pattern if you knit with different yarns. Thank you for trying out this design! You can match the dress with my Ballerina Baby Booties and January Beanie for a set. Do share with me your project using this pattern. Pattern is copyrighted.

Benang Kait

1618522_694535183903329_1534576941_n

Saya kerap menerima email yang bertanyakan tentang jenis-jenis benang kait yang ada dan saya rasa sangat senang membantu mereka mendapatkan jawapan untuk soalan mereka.

Satu perkara yang sering saya tekankan ialah “Jangan Takut Untuk Mencuba”. Mencuba pelbagai jenis benang kait yang ada di pasaran merupakan salah satu cara yang paling baik untuk anda tentukan kelebihan dan kekurangan terhadap benang kait tersebut dan kesesuaiannya terhadap projek anda.

Saya sendiri amat suka mencuba pelbagai jenis benang dari yang paling mahal sehinggalah yang paling murah bagi melihat kualiti dan kelebihannya. Sememangnya setiap benang yang sudah saya cuba dan kait ini mempunyai pro dan cons masing-masing. Disini, anda perlu bijak menentukan bajet anda supaya pembaziran tidak berlaku.

Apa yang sering kali saya perhatikan ialah “”andaian”” menjadikan kita takut untuk mencuba sesuatu jenis benang kait sama ada mahal ataupun murah walaupun tidak pernah kita cuba. Bagi saya, saya tidak akan menerima “‘andaian”” selagi tidak mencubanya, bukan setakat touch and feel sahaja tetapi saya pasti akan hasilkan sebuah projek kecil ataupun besar bagi melihat hasilnya sama ada ia sesuai ataupun tidak untuk projek yang ingin saya kait.

Tahukah anda, setiap benang kait yang dihasilkan walaupun diperbuat daripada jenis fiber yang sama, sama ada ianya adalah wool, acrylic, cotton, bamboo, linen dan pelbagai lagi, hasil tekstur adalah sangat berbeza dari satu jenis ke satu jenis yang lain seperti dari jenis yang paling keras sehinggalah jenis yang paling lembut.

Setiap ketebalan dan cara pintalan benang kait tersebut juga sangat mempengaruhi hasil kait kita. Cara mengait dan teknik stitch yang digunapakai juga amat memberi kesan terhadap hasil kait dan projek. Projek yang melibatkan cable stitch dan ribbing menjadikan projek kita lebih tebal manakala projek yang dihasilkan secara lace dan loose memberikan efek lembut terhadap projek kita walau apa pun jenis benang kait yang digunakan. Selain itu, peranan ‘blocking’ amat memberikan kesan yang mendalam terhadap hasil akhir projek dimana ianya akan menjadikan projek anda ebih lumayan dan eksklusif.

Walau bagaimanapun, pilihan yang terbaik adalah bermula di tangan kita. Sama ada mahal ataupun murah sesuatu benang kait tersebut, anda perlu bijak membuat pilihan bagi mendapatkan kepuasan anda dalam menghasilkan projek kait anda. Tidak semua projek sesuai digunakan dengan benang kait yang sama disebabkan perbezaan ketebalan, berat dan pintalan mempengaruhi projek kita. Bukan kerana ia mahal ataupun murah.

Di harap artikel pendek di pagi ini dapat membantu anda sedikit sebanyak untuk membuat pilihan dalam pemilihan benang kait yang untuk sesuatu projek anda.

Dress oh dress..

553593_614598941896954_1442272833_nFor the passed 3 days, I’ve been working with my new pattern. I really need to have at least few knitted dress in my pattern collections therefore the first thing I do is measuring one of my daughter’s dress as a sample before I begin.

I used Ice Magic Baby. Knitting with trial and error. Getting the right gauge, pointing down all the important calculations as I knit. So far, it goes well I can’t promise to show the result of my dress today, but hopefully I can complete it within next week.

The pattern will be available for purchase. oh yes, insya Allah i will also include photos tutorial for easy reference.

so, wish me luck and my hope is to encourage more newbies knitter to advance their knitting skill with this new pattern and tutorial.

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera 🙂

I’ve been experimenting my kopiah for the pass week. This is to ensure that my written instruction is correct after I found a small mistake in my writing therefore I need to re-do it again. So far, I made the correction for almost 5 times@_@! I’ll be writing again today to get the final result. Once I feel satisfied, I will publish it by tonight or tomorrow, insya Allah 🙂
(NOTE: I will write two sizes, for adult and for kids. I’ll give some tips on how to reduce the size into baby size in my pattern too :)) Stay tune!
