More little (finished) crochet things

I was all set to show you my finished beret... until I looked at it in a better light and realised that after switching from metal circulars to wooden DPNs my tension changed considerably, and I'd have to rip out and reknit the last few inches...which I haven't done yet, leaving only these things to show for Finished Object Friday.
YARNS: Wendy Supreme Luxury Cotton DK 
HOOK: 3.5mm
MODIFICATIONS: I'd actually made the foundation chain and the first row of htc (the green bit)  to fit Little Miss before finding the pattern - I'd have improvised if I hadn't found this one - so it was coincidence/luck that the number of stitches worked out perfectly. I'd started with a chain of 68 and left long tails at the start and end of the green yarn to make a macrame-eque button hole. Little Miss chose the button herself, next time I'd just make a crochet button without asking her! This is a great free pattern from the blog I mentioned a few days ago, and can be hooked up in the time it takes to drink a mug of tea, plus at 23.4g including the button it is a nice little 'leftover yarn' stashbuster. 
After seeing his sister try on the collar, My Boy asked if he could have one - a "smart boy's one". We compromised on a bow tie and yesterday morning I spent ten minutes making a rectangle and crochet strip to wrap around it, which he has worn all day with a t-shirt! This time, he didn't wear the comedy glasses all day, they were just for the photo (which doesn't really show the bow off very well, but was too cute not to use). 
Apparently he can feel the love in every stitch when he wears it and when it's Mufti Day he's going to wear it to school because it looks so smart. Hmmm - I see a career in politics ahead!

  6. Yes, these look lovely. Making one of the collars will certainly be my quickest route to a FO Friday as my jacket (adult sized!) is going backwards rather than forwards! Beautiful pics x G
