A Good Witch – Jeannie Dresses Up for Halloween

31 Oct

Knowing I was going to be spending several hours at a Gymnastics Competition with both my daughters recently, I looked for a crochet pattern that could keep me amused for a few hours (it took me several days to complete it in the end!) I chose Odile’s gorgeous dance outfit at Passion Poupees.

I had already made this beautiful pattern for Jeannie, but I couldn’t resist this beautiful yarn and it suited Jeannie’s complexion far better than Annie’s. So Jeannie gets the new version and Annie is wearing my original pink version.

Here they are together in their ballet tutus.

This very pretty, slightly sparkly white yarn is from Wendy. It is Peter Pan 4 ply in shade 3000 (white with a strand of glitter yarn through it). I used a 3.50 mm hook and spent a few days completing the outfit (I kept getting distracted by other beautiful patterns and finishing them first.) There is an extraordinary number of stitches by the time you get to the last row, to give the tutu its lovely, voluminous frill.

But today is Halloween and Jeannie wanted to take the wee ones out guising round the neighbours’ houses. As the wee rascals were dressing up as naughty witches, Jeannie decided to be a Good Witch.

So I made her a witch’s hat and she is all ready to go. I adapted my hat pattern for the Corollines, by using a slightly bigger crochet hook (size 3.50 mm) and adding some extra increase rows and extra rows for length and it is the perfect size for Jeannie.

This time I added a gusset to the tutu so the leotard and pants are all-in-one. This was to make sure that the pants were not obvious underneath.

I think they all look very sweet together.

Ps: both my girls won gold medals, so I am very proud.
