I finished Juliana's little hood earlier this week while laying sick on the couch! It turned out so cute. Juliana tried it on. I told her she looked like a little elf, and she was sold. She has worn it every day since.
The pattern by Bonita Patterns is mostly the crocodile stitch, a v stitch, and a half double crochet. The crocodile stitch takes more time to complete, but definitely offers a unique effect. I would certainly recommend the pattern. She offers good instructions, and if you need even more visual help (like me), I found several tutorials for this specific stitch on Youtube.
I did make the mistake of taking the girls with me to pick out the yarn for each of their hoods. Juliana and I disagreed quite a bit about what color. She preferred bright magenta pink with metallic sparkles. I picked out a fun apple green. We compromised on the light pink. Now Felicity watches me with great interest as I work on her blue one.
