Shell Stitch Beanie I said I would post a free patttern, so here it is. This is a pattern for the shell stitch beanie in my previous post.

Crochet Penguin Hat Pattern If you follow my Facebook page, I know you have been anxiously awaiting this pattern for a couple of weeks now :) Thank you for all the great response and positive feedback from the sneak peek of this hat! I am excited about this pattern because it starts with a new basic beanie pattern that is different from my Owl and Sock Monkey hats. I was noticing the top of the hats were becoming pointed with my other patterns and I believe I have fixed that problem with this pattern. I am looking forward to your feedback! Before we begin let me remind you of some basic directions you should follow while crocheting my hats:- Always start your rounds in the same stitch as your chain.- Always join your rounds to the first DC, NOT the chain.- Your last stitch should be in the stitch before your chain. - Do NOT count the chain 2 as a stitch. Materials: - Black worsted weight yarn (I used Loops & Threads Impeccable) - Tapestry needle Abbreviations: ch - chain sl st- slip stitch SC - Single Crochet
Crochet Cuffed Baby Booties Pattern I started playing around with my Crochet Rain Boots pattern and adapted it into these cute little cuffed booties! Enjoy the the pattern and be sure to follow my instructions on where to start, end and join your rounds since it is different than the rain boots pattern! Always begin your rounds in the same stitch as your chain. In rounds 2-5 you will end your rounds in the same stitch as your chain. So technically you will be adding an extra stitch to each round. I have found that this helps keep the heal flatter. Crochet Cuffed Baby Booties Size: 6-12 months Supplies: Vanna’s Choice® medium worsted weight yarn in two colors Crochet hook size G-6 (4.0 mm) tapestry needle for weaving in ends Buttons for embellishments Abbreviations: ch – chain SC – Single CrochetHDC – Half Double Crochet *** You may make and sell products from my patterns but if you do I ask that you link back to my post.

Baby Panda Outfit As you know, when I was pregnant I went on a crochet spree, trying to crochet as many cute items for our baby as I possibly could! I knew we would be doing a newborn photoshoot, so I tried to crochet some special props for it (including this cute stork pouch). While looking up crochet ideas for newborn shoots, I came across this adorable turtle outfit as well as this sweet ladybug outfit. I wanted to make Myla a little outfit too, so we decided to go with a panda bear! I had already made some owl hats using Sarah’s pattern on “Repeat Crafter Me”- I loved how the seam was hidden and how she had hat patterns for newborns all the way to adults! And so, I followed her newborn pattern to make my panda hat. Next, I crocheted the ears using black yarn and Ryan cut these oval shapes out of black felt for the eyes. We sewed the black ovals onto the white hat and then sewed these black buttons onto the black ovals. Here are some more views of the face… Then it was time to attach the ears… Materials:

Crochet Hooded Scarf I have been crocheting up a storm. Christmas is coming and I am giving a lot of crocheted gifts this year. I still have a lot more to make. I really should be crocheting right now instead of blogging :) Last year my grandma wrapped a scarf around her head and claimed it was warmer than any of the hats she owned. I saw this pattern on Ravelry (no longer available) and I knew it would be perfect. This pattern was really easy to make. Mike liked it so much he thought I should make one for myself. If I do make another one I would probably add a few extra stitches to make the hood a little bigger. Here are my awesome self portraits of me modeling my scarf I may be linking up to one of these fabulous parties
