~ Behind the scene of Autumn Shine ~

Ready for the Woodland journey!
~ ♥ ~

I wish I could share you all the steps of making this piece into live.
Anyway, I will do my best to give you an instruction.

I actually start from the orange part, do you see above photo that have 2 buttons on it. I start it from there. The approximate length of that part is about 130"cm (actually more complicated than that, I just try to give you a simple way) this measurement is measured to be overlap of my shoulder.
 I work hdc, only in the back loops.
The width part you can decide depends on what you like, I combined it with the scarf that I had made a week before Sweet Raspberry
I removed the wooden buttons and crochet them together into one piece.
You can see from the photo below.

Then I have an idea to attach the Granny Square, so I did!

As you can see in the photo above that the shoulder part is overlap.
And now time for the hoodie part!

 I love hdc stitches, don´t know why.
So I made the hoodie part with hdc and again only in the back loops, as I love the texture that gives.
I added some Granny Squares in the hoodie part as well.

now the hoodie part is done!!!

and I crocheted both parts together.

I also crocheted the trim with
ch2 (count as 1hdc), in the same ch st 2dc,1trc,ch1,1trc,2dch,1hdc
The stitches above created a little shell movement you are seeing around the trim.
Continue across till the end and Tadaa!!!!
You are DONE!

 Oh, I have also added these wooden buttons for the closures.

and not to forget, the leaves ^:^
And yeah pretty much it!

Hope you enjoy making yourself a Pixie Hoodie Capelet.
