Karla’s Hats

Since published Little Karla Girl pattern, many times have been asked about different hat patterns for the little Karla. Blame it on me for not posting more back then, but when I crochet, I crochet without any pattern and usually don’t write what I am dong. So I end up repeating same doll and same pattern several times before it “hits” me that I could write it down for some future use. 🙂

Since I started with this blog, I do try to write down all I do. Even first time doing it. Now need time writing it all nice and readable 😀 Let us get back to what we have started here; hats for little Karla doll. You all met Karla. Since last time you saw her, her hair grew a little, but still not enough to take the hat off 😀 Will show you, her recent photos, but please, if you will must laugh, turn your head around and laugh quietly. We really did our best to comb and make nice hair style for photo shooting today.

So here comes Karla:

Karla Hats - 04🙂 we said no laughing loud!!!!

Today, tried to make up few hats together with patterns, so all of you that asked for something different to put on Karla’s head, now have few options to choose from.

Here are hats I have made today.

Karla Hats - 26These are really basic models and very, very simple to make. You can use them to make so many different styles. Once you’ll start and let your imagination lead you, you will see how it becomes never-ending story (when it comes to creating something new 🙂 So do not hesitate, take your little Karla, some yarn and needle and start creating new hats for this little one! Let’s continue with the hat patterns!

Starting with little mint green hat.

Ella the Elephant

 

Finally finished!  Let me present my first elephant amigurumi, little Ella.

As I always make several of same dolls to check up on the pattern, right after finishing her made her a boyfriend as well. Think both make nice infant or baby toy. Both are soft and cuddly.

Here are pictures of Ella and her friend

Further more, had some left over yarn, so used it to make little fun ball. Suggest everyone to do it. makes great baby gift or cat toy. All you need to do is to make 12 equal size crocheted discs and sew them piece by pice together to create this ball. Before sewing the last one, stuff it in finish sewing up and ball is ready to play with. Here are few pictures.

Crocheted discs in difernt colors (but same yarn weight)
