One for the Eric Clapton fans

If you wanna hang out you've gotta take her out. Crochet.


If you got bad news, you wanna kick them blues. Crochet.


When your day is done and you wanna run. Crochet.

She don't lie

she don't lie

she don't like.

Crochet.

Showing and telling at Leonie's.

Degree of difficulty: Easy. The pattern is available on this blog if you would like to try it for yourself
Time taken: 4 hours
Result: Definitely use a 5.0 crochet hook. I used a 4 as that was the only hook I have that was close in size. The beanie is made from 8 ply wool so there is plenty of stretch in it, but the size is more suited for a newborn. Or a doll. Or just something that doesn't express any opinion whatsoever.

    2. haha - at least you have a point of reference as it led to a huge top gun discussion and me chuckling a whole evening away :) I think he is just pleased to know who the heck I'm talking about half the time :)

    3. It's actually really nice to know that I made someone else smile. I have to say that the first weekend after I wrote that blog post, I walked into Spotlight and that song was being played in store. I walked around the whole time with a smile on my face. It will never be quite the same song again.

    1. Would you like it? It's such a shame to have a well-dressed doll. Do you know anyone with a newborn girl? First offer to you.

  4. It's gorgeous. Could you extend it for yourself? Maybe the recipient might like it if she thinks she'll lose it to you?

    1. I did consider it, but it would have meant buying another ball of wool to finish it, and I am trying to use up what I have, not buy more. My plan is failing terribly so far though :).
