Sweet Pea Crochet

by Sue Rawlinson

New baby on the way? What better time than to crochet a beautiful matching gift set for the precious little one?

Sue Rawlinson of 'Sweetpea Family Crochet' has designed six beautiful coordinated bundles for every occasion, from bringing the baby home to that all-important first outing. Each bundle includes a baby blanket plus two or three other gifts such as a soft bunny to cuddle, a pretty garland to hang, a baby bear comforter, a hot water bottle cosy and snuggly mittens for a newborn or age 03 months. There are 25 projects in total, so you are spoilt for choice, and each gift set is worked in coordinated colourways and styles.

Along with illustrated crochet techniques, there are also suggestions for gifting and finishing touches such as crocheted ties to keep your blanket folded when you give it as a gift. The blanket ties can be embellished with mini pompoms, crochet hearts or crochet flowers. 

Many of the smaller projects such as cosy beanie hats can be finished in an evening, so they are satisfying to make and even more satisfying to give away. With pastel shades, simple designs and soft textures, parents, grandparents and friends will be reaching for their crochet hooks to make gorgeous handmade items for their bundle of joy.
