Crocheting baby gifts - a shrug and a beret






I   made these yesterday for a friend's baby. 
For the shrug I used a lovely puff stitch crocheted motif which I must admit looks more adorable in cotton yarn than wool. The beret was a breeze making it. However I am a bit uneasy if it will fit the baby (which is by the way 6 months old) since I didn't use any pattern but rather increased the stitches of a pattern for a 3-months old baby. I need to make a flower for it - I don't like to leave it bare, on the other hand whatever flower I put on it looks inappropriate. Hope to get my dilemmas resolved soon.

Such pretty dilemmas! My older daughter received a very similar shrug, in ivory when she was born. We have kept it in a hanger in her room. You have made such a beautiful heirloom gift.
