I’m really excited about sharing crafts and tutorials with you all. I think now that the weather is cooling off we’re going to start thinking more about making things for Christmas and for the cold months.
Today I want to talk about crocheting. Once you learn a few basics, you can do anything! It’s a versatile craft and very rewarding. Take a look at some of the things I have made for Emma:
I crocheted this blanket while I was pregnant using multicolored soft baby yarn and a corresponding solid color for the border – so easy, it’s just a giant granny square! Can you say “Repetition”? lol
These hats are super simple – just crochet a rectangle and stitch the sides together! I love this hat with tassles. :-)
I see glaring errors in these projects… lol. See, I’m a beginner. But with practice things get easier. :-) That right hat should have been done in single crochet, but I was in a hurry and used double crochet, which goes a lot faster. Still, it keeps her head warm and serves its purpose… cuteness and warmth!
I found the pattern for the hats in a crochet book I borrowed from the library, I think it was one of the Candy Crochet books (ADORABLE!).
A similar free pattern can be found here at Crochet ‘N More – just leave out the ruffled brim.
You can also find many wonderful free patterns at Crochet Pattern Central – check out their Baby Hats section!
Need to learn how to crochet first?
For those of you who don’t know how but would like to learn, watch the video below to learn some basics – I love the woman’s accent, lol.
