Crochet Pattern: Baby’s Dino Hat with Cape Photos of naked babies on sheepskins is sooo yesterday! But of course it had to happen, now that I got real sheepskin for my second grandson Dexter. Now, all the rage is to use props of various kinds. They can be cute or funky or silly or geeky or anything that catches the parents’ fancy. Often it’s something to show the interests of the parents. Just search for “baby photo props” on Google and you’ll get 5 million hits! My daughter Maria wanted a dinosaur/dragon outfit for her newborn son’s photo. I happened to have cotton yarn in the requested colors.

Christmas Hat Santa Hats Photo Props Beanie Winter Hats by YumbabY Woven Square Slippers: A Tutorial | Knitting Interrupted So weaving is great for making flat fabric, and with my loom I can whip up a 12″ square in a couple of hours. But what are you going to do with all those squares? I mean, I can only make so many dish cloths, you know? Then I got an idea. 1. 2. And, using it as a drawstring, pull it tight, gathering up one side of the square to look like this: Now your square looks like this: 3. leaving a hole in the top.

Star Seams: a New Paper-Pieced Star, If You Dare One evening while perusing a catalogue, I found a shape that I wanted to try replicating in fabric: this mirror. I love the look of outlined stars (evidence: Lone Starburst), and immediately had visions of this new paper-pieced specimen. This new 12.5-inch (unfinished) block, which I call Star Seams, was born. I tried it out first with some lovely scraps... And then twice again with more limited, deliberate selections. The template looks quite neat on paper. I discovered that you have to be very careful with this template, and since I'm not the most careful sometimes, I had a few oopses. I don't love the process of paper-piecing. While I haven't been able to create the perfect exemplar yet (and may never...), here are the (free) templates I came up with if you're an intrepid crafter. Instructions: print 2 copies of the pattern to have 2 templates for each piece, A to F. Once each piece is complete, 1. join A -> B, C -> D, and E -> F, matching up outside edges and corners. 2. then AB -> CD,

Frozen's Olaf Snowman Hat EASY Crochet Pattern by HulaLoopDesigns Free Crochet Patterns and Designs by LisaAuch: How to Crochet The Star Stitch and Crochet a Warm Cosy Blanket I came across a pattern for a baby blanket using the "star stitch" not only had I never heard of this crochet stitch before, but I had never tried it. SO I taught myself a new stitch. The star stitch is also known (as I have since found out and hence probably why I haven't hear of it before) the Margarite stitch, daisy stitch and star stitch. Very easy to pick up and not only makes a beautiful stitch and pattern, it is lovely to work, especially in nice thick Aran Yarn. I made a lapghan for my Uncle. The star stitch is in multiples of two +5 So I would chain 105 to start Explanation of star stitch Star Stitch. Row 1.
