Apple Watch Cover Crochet Pattern

Last weekend was special for our family. Our two youngest nieces had their quinceniera, and it was beautiful. For those who aren’t familiar with this term, it’s a Mexican tradition where a girl is presented to society at the age of 15, similar to a Sweet 16 party or a Debut. There is a mass for them at the church, then everyone heads to the hall for the remainder of the festivities. The evening begins with a mariachi band playing while dinner is served. https://youtu.be/I6fgsL_xQVE

The next part is the birthday girls being presented with gifts to symbolize their transition from childhood to womanhood. These include a tiara, a pair of high-heeled shoes, and la ultima muneca (the last doll). One of my nieces asked me to be her madrina (sponsor) for the gift that has become a new tradition. The gift is meant to symbolize the girls leaving behind their childhood for more adult pursuits, so we decided on an Apple watch. Well, everyone in the family knows that I crochet their gifts, so I just couldn’t resist giving her a gag gift first!

 

It’s a simple pattern and doesn’t take much time at all, and you probably have enough yarn in your stash to make a few of them. This would be great for a white elephant gift this Christmas! Also makes a great teacher gift.

Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021

Helen Wilkinson from Sunflower Cottage Crochet is hosting her Preemie Crochet Challenge again this year. Each day a new baby crochet pattern by an indie designer will be featured. For each pattern you download, we are asking for one item to be donated to a charity for preemies or hospital of your choice. I am honored to have one of my designs selected as the featured pattern today.

HOW DOES THE CHALLENGE WORK?

  1. Each day at 8am London time, the blog post will be updated with that day’s featured pattern.
  2. I will give you the code and links you need. If the designer has a blog, you will be directed there for more information about the pattern; if not you will be taken directly to Ravelry.
  3. You will decide if you would like that pattern.
  4. By accepting the free PDF download, you are pledging to donate at least one made item from that pattern to a Preemie charity/organization/NICU/family of your choosing.
  5. The patterns below will be categorized as the event progresses to make it easier for you to establish which patterns are still available, which are available free on the designers blog, and which are now only paid patterns. The first pattern will be the featured pattern for that day.
