Happened to be playing when I started recording this skully.
Actual Dimensions: 7 x 6 (H) inches
Pattern Dimensions: 15-16” (C); 6” (H), 3-6 Months
Pattern: Emma Beanie by Ashley Leither
I got the height right if I was supposed to measure from the top of the head versus the last increase round, but the circumference I ended up with should fit a tween (11-12 year old). Not a fan of her patterns using a J-hook with worsted weight. Pattern is well written, minus measuring definitions.

I kept putting off infant crochet for my future great nephew, and the other day I realized I better start crocheting faster because he is due in January 2018.
I had been wanting to save the Wobbly Squares Blanket pattern by Tw-In Stitches for Bunnyland (a project in conception), but thought this would be a good place to try the pattern. OMG! The pattern is so simple and once you understand the repeats, it is not problem. Warning! Keep track, I lost count and almost ended up with a completely lopsided blanket due to wrong stitch counts: 48 on side one, 48 on side 2, 52 on side 3, 52 on side 4. I managed to catch this before the last eight rows and was able to conceal the mistake with only 1 adjustment row.
Bernat Baby Coordinates
Colors: Lemon Custard, White, Blue/Green mix, and Green/Yellow/White mix; Content: 75.2 % Acrylic, 22.2% Rayon, 2.6% Nylon; Weight: 3, DK
I had to dig up all my baby yarns and found a box Bernat Baby Cordinates and similar stuff, so I mixed them up and started. Unfortunately, I forgot to include the mint green and baby blue I had, but looking at the blanket now, I think it would have been too much. My afghan measures approximately 32 inches square. I chose not to put a border. Next is a blue and white striped sweater.
Ironically, the project name – Upside Down by Jack Johnson – is appropriate to the pattern, which appears to be v-stitches, but in reality are double-crochet clusters – the Upside Down of v-stitches.
