Recently I have been travelling a lot so have been unable to carry bulky work around, and have been able to indulge my main crochet pleasure: very, very fine work in beautiful yarns, and here is one of the results...
It is a very elaborate baby cape made from very fine gauge, soft and fine merino wool in classic white. I have worked it in a very intricate but bold Baroque lace pattern, with six wonderfully dramatic, curved and flaring panels, interspersed with pineapple lace segments and puff stitch detail which work together to create flattering godets at the hem. I have edged it all around with borders of tiny picots, and threaded through a delicate satin ribbon fastening at the neck.
As the perfect finishing touch, I have created a delicate popcorn crochet flower hair snap grip, with a flower shaped mother of pearl effect button at its centre. This would look beautiful either as a hair decoration, or clipped to a baby headband.
This is a super-special, but practical item, since baby capes go over anything, go with anything, are suitable for any occasion, are not too size sensitive and look amazing on! It would be the perfect cover up for a special occasion.
The design is my own, based on various vintage lace patterns.
- 70% fine pure merino wool, 30% acrylic
- very gentle wash
- length from neck to hem 9.5 inches
About Nina B creations: I began making clothes and toys for my daughter when she was a baby. Soon people were asking me where I got them.
Now, in my spare time, I continue to create items for gifts, charity, commissions and sales. I specialise in very fine gauge crochet and particularly enjoy working from my collection of vintage and Japanese patterns. Through my crafting connections, I am lucky to have access to very fine and highest quality yarns and notions.
Because this is a hobby, not a business, everything I make is unique and prices reflect costs rather than time.
I hope you will enjoy looking through this store, as much as I enjoy making the items for sale in it.
