The third part of the reveal includes the presents I made for three women in my life, namely my mom, my brother’s girlfriend, and The Man’s mom.
My mom was gifted with the Relaxed Cardi. Pattern details are here.
I wanted to give my mom something cozy to relax in when she’s in the house reading, or watching a movie. This cardi is perfect. It was made with smooshy Bernat Satin in a deep forest green. Looks great with my mom’s pale skin & eyes.
My sister in law was given a Chevron Lace Cardi (a wonderful free pattern I come back to ALL THE TIME – pattern details here).
I gave her this particular cardi because it’s made with Bernat Cool Crochet – the same yarn I used for a sexy camisole I gave her a while back. Essentially, a twin set if she so chooses. Also, she doesn’t wear much colour ;P
My mother in law is a very sophisticated lady, so I thought a lacy beret in a lovely cream (officialy ‘mushroom’) colour would suit. It does. And it matches our monkey hats somewhat =)
All gifts were well received, I’m happy to say! Which leaves me with one last post to write for 2013 presents… cannot wait to show you!
