Baby Hexagon Jacket

I've been meaning to share this with you for about two months now! So sorry for the delay. I know that things seem to be quiet around Seaweed & Raine, but things on the home front have been busy, busy, busy (more on that some other time perhaps).


You might remember this Bendigo Cotton yarn that I found some time ago? Well the last time you saw it it looked like this...


I have finally uploaded the photos so I can show you how it turned out. I'm pretty chuffed with it really. My first hooky baby garment that isn't a pair of booties!!! YAY! It isn't perfect (I know where the mistakes are), but if you aren't looking for them you would pretty much miss them entirely. This pattern was so easy to do - once I figured out what the creator was REALLY saying in a couple of places (that would be me still being a novice-self-taught crochet-er). It's so repetitive, I watched several episodes of Grand designs while making it (which might be possibly why there are a couple of mistakes... I wasn't counting carefully enough! LOL).
So are you ready?
You are?
Fab! Let's get to it then! :)



And a close up of the buttons... Which is why it was October instead of the beginning of September when I finally finished it! I took me forever to find buttons that I liked to go with it.


I'd love to say I Ravelled it here... but I never did update the deets. Gifted to a cute little nephew.
