The Boy Trifecta: Dino Spike Crochet Pattern

The Boy Trifecta: Dino Spike Crochet Pattern
I sort of think it does. Or at least it seems so to me. And I've definitely got the crochet bug these days. I've got a little monster running around my house these days, so I thought I'd create a hat to reflect his wild insane out-of-control hilariously adorable personality. Of course, this one modeling the hat, he's not a monster at all. He's just the only one who will sit long enough for me to take a picture. I mean seriously, how can you not love those eyes? In case you have any little monsters that you would like to make this hat for, here's the dino spike pattern. Hook: 5mm (H) Yarn: Any worsted weight is fine - I used Wool-Ease. Mark the first stitch in each round. Round 1: Make a magic loop/ring, and do 6 single crochets in the loop. Round 2: Single crochet around (6 sc) Round 3: 2 single crochet in first stitch, 1 sc in next stitch - repeat around (9 sc) Round 4: Single crochet in each stitch (9 sc) Round 5: 2 single crochet in first stitch, 1 sc in next stitch - repeat around (14 sc)

So far, I haven't had any unsightly effects using this join, and I use it frequently! Crocheted Baby Aviator Hat With this pattern, your little one will be flying high in no time!

Shared with you.: Reversible Magnetic Wipe-Clean Toddler Bib with Pattern I mentioned recently that my sister has been visiting. It has been so nice to have her around, and to have someone to craft with. My sister is expecting her third child and decided that it was time to make some new baby bibs. She still doesn't know the gender of the little babe so we wanted to make sure that we chose some gender neutral fabric. I headed down to my mom's house where my sister was staying and we did some fabric shopping. The town is quite small and there isn't a huge selection of fabric to choose from, but we did manage to find this adorable Riley Blake fabric that we both liked and would feel comfortable putting on a boy or girl.

Newsletter May 2010 - A crocheted flower brooch What better time of year for flowers than spring? Crochet lends itself beautifully to a number of things, and one of those is jewelry. Necklaces, bracelets and brooches. I love making these small accessories between larger projects. Even if you don't have a lot of time, you can whip up a little something with a beautiful result. This time around, I wanted to make a brooch in the shape of a multilayered flower.

the 15 Minute Diaper Clutch Today I have a super simple sewing project - the 15 minute diaper clutch. I'm not super fast with sewing, but this baby takes almost no time at all. It's also a pretty easy project - even if you're a beginner. While I'm calling it a diaper clutch, it could easily be used as a regular clutch as well. I knew I wanted this case to be fairly large. It needs to fit my wipes and I like it hold 3 larger sized diapers as well.
