>Yoyo Crochet Baby bonnets


yoyo bonnets

I don’t always post when I make things becasue of restrictions with publishers and things of that sort sometimes other authors when I am testing patterns for them.  I actually have about 12 times right now I can’t show till a later date then I will share them too.

Last October I made 4 baby bonnets out of yo-yo crochet.  They where possible items for the book  or for the magazine article they never ended up in either.  So here is my question are people liking these if so I can post the patterns and make them available to people.  Some of these photos were taken last year shortly after I made these in October to send to the publisher as some idea submissions for the magazine and some today.   I was on vacation for my Vova’s birthday last year and I got these ideas in my head so the colors are a little off becasue I had not planned on making bonnets and it was meant more as an idea to get out of my head.  But I still like these anyway funny colors and all on some of these.   I never finished these by putting their ribbons on them I should do that now.Enjoy

>Errata for yoyo book

>Just noticed today that I needed to post some errata for the “Learn to do yo-yo Crochet” book.  Just so you know this doesn’t effect any of the patterns in the book it is in an area where it is just explaining a concept so the numbers don’t actually hurt anything but it would be nice to have things correct.

    Easy As 1-2-3 — Fun With Yo-Yos
    Designs by Wendy Harbaugh
    The center yo-yos in these fun projects look like individual little circles, but they are cleverly created in one continuous piece before the edging is added.
