Red, White & Blue


Hello - and welcome

I have been enjoying making baby items recently. Some in traditional classic pale colours - but I've also been a bit with bolder - with more contemporary colours too.  At the moment I love navy as an accent or contrast colour.

I think these are cute ~

nautical baby cardigan

white & navy blue baby cardigan

red, white & blue baby hat

 and I am happy with them.
I think I might try lime green next.
 
I would love to know what colours combinations you enjoy using ....

  1. They are all lovely Marianna, I like purple and green combination, all shades from the palest green and lilac to the darkest purple and bottle green. It's also great to combine colours you don't think will match but surprise you when they do. :)

  5. The red white and blue sweater is SO cute! I looked through your blog hoping to find the pattern, but didn't see it. I was hoping to make one for our baby who will born in March (even though it's knit and I would rather crochet!) Would you be willing to send it or tell me were you found it? Thanks so much! vsalmonson AT hotmail.com
