Winter Wear

 The weather has been really cold the last few weeks and so this has been a good opportunity to wear the winter wear I have made for the children over the last few months.    Oliver now has a complete set - hat, scarf and gloves which are all slightly too big and I am therefore hoping will last him this winter and next.   Lily just has a hat but I'm sure over the next few weeks I will work on a scarf and gloves for her too.

Last year Oliver was really into space and so I decided to make him a space themed scarf.    I made the pattern up although I never actually wrote it down, I know it only took a couple of evenings to make.   It has rockets, planets and stars as well so bright colours everything a space loving toddler needs.    I think the multi coloured fringe at the end makes it even better.   Unfortunately I didn't write down what I did, however, I suspect I could work it out if I ever had the need to make another one.

Whilst he still lives space as with most toddlers he got an new favourite around his 3rd birthday - paw patrol.  Therefore I made his hat to imitate the hat of his then favourite puppy Chase.    I used this basic pattern and edited the colours and added a star to make it like the one Chase wears.    It turns out that making this hat has made hat wearing more fun this winter and he actually gets upset if I suggest he doesn't need to wear it out!

Finally after buying and breaking or loosing multiple gloves I decided I would have a go at making him some.    I used the broken ones as a template to work with and it only took a couple of hours to work out each glove.   I have made a chain string attaching them together so at least they will stay in his coat and not get lost.   Hoping they will not break as easily either.



I also had a go at writing down what I did if you would like to try and make some yourself please look below.    They are for approximately age 3 to 4 but I will probably work on other sizes too since I need to make some for my daughter and also work up to adult gloves for me too.   Please bear in mind this is the first time I have written down a pattern so if you find any issues please let me know!

 Hope you have enjoyed this week on winter wear.   See you next time!
