Purple Crochet Set For A Girl

Hello Blogger Friends!

Birthday gift for girl is so easy to fine or make.  My daughter is going to her classmate birthday party this Saturday and I made this crochet set for her to give it to her friend.

 I discovered a new way to make the gloves.  I knitted the cuff first then I crocheted the rest of the glove.  This way the two gloves finished evenly.  Trying to crochet a pair of exact same glove or sock is not easy as it look because the stitches tension was not the same and I ended up 2 gloves with different sizes.

  I don't like the ruffle scarf that I saw on the web.  It was too ruffle (lol).  It was too curly for me so I changed the pattern.  If you know how to crochet, the ruffle scarf is the easiest scarf to make.

Here is my pattern.  It can be used for 5 to 7 years old.  You can change the pattern by increasing the stitches.   I crochet tighter than other people so I used more stitches.

Ruffle Scarf pattern

1. Chain 121
2. single crochet in the second chain from hook. single crochet across. chain 1 and turn
3. 2 half double crochets in each single crochet across.  chain 2 and turn
4. 2 double crochet in each half double crochet across.  chain 2 and turn
5. 1 double crochet, chain 1, 1 double crochet chain 1, across
6. single crochet across with contrasting color.

Thank for stopping by again.
