I crocheted… gifts! Christmas reveal, part 3


Aussi en / Also in frFrançais

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

And The Man’s mom was given one of the lovely Visage Lace Berets I make so very often (see proof here, here, here, and here, and hereand in my shop, if you want one too!)

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!
