Autumn’s Here – I admit it and make Something with Long Sleeves!

20 Oct

Here is Annie wearing another fantastic outfit by Odile of Passion Poupees. As usual I had to use a bigger crochet hook and also I had to add in extra rows to lengthen both the jacket and particularly the skirt. The skirt would have been a wee bit skimpy otherwise for the colder weather which seems to be well and truly on its way.

I used a yarn by Wendy called Mode 4 ply and it was a nightmare to crochet with. It seems to be barely twisted at all and constantly split on the hook. I imagine I spent twice as long on this outfit as I could have done had I been using a tightly wound cotton. I bought it really cheaply from my favourite yarn stockist E Kemp (though maybe it wasn’t the bargain I thought it was). The shade is 205 ‘Iris’ (dull lilac).

I think that this colour lends itself well to the season of autumn.

I made a matching hat (from another pattern of Odile’s) to keep Annie’s head warm as the weather takes a turn for the worse, and she is wearing boots by Corolle to keep her tootsies warm.
