Little gifts

Jill got crocheted arm warmers and a little matching hat for her Barbie doll for Christmas. Here is a rather overexposed photo of the items before we sent them to Jill.

I made these by creating rectangles in rows of basic single crochet, with the ribbing designed to run lengthwise down Jill's arms. Once the rectangles were wide enough to wrap around her arms, I brought the long edges together and seamed them, leaving small openings for her thumbs a couple of inches from the hand end of each. Then I finished them by adding some pink pony beads for pizzazz.
