Recently my niece Abby was having a birthday. I knew I wanted to make her something that would make her eyes light up. I asked my sister Miranda, from Work At Home Adventures, what I should make. Since she has a little girl that is also 6, I knew she would have a clever idea. She quickly sent me a link from The Yarn Box for a free Lalaloopsy crochet pattern.
The Lalaloopsy pattern was simple enough for me to understand but I must admit, the pattern is flawed and at some points, it really lacked detail. Which is really fine with me since I like to do my own thing anyways. I think a crochet beginner would be able to figure the pattern out but experience will really come in handy with this one.
Shortly after I started making Abby’s doll, my daughter Ella stressed to me how much she wanted one too… a baby one. I was going to write a free pattern for it to share with you but there were some flaws that I would really want to get fixed before posting. Don’t worry though! You can find the free pattern for the original on Ravelry.
About a year ago, a friend of mine took some amazing photos for me of the Chloe Hat and for my About Me. I promised her I would make her baby (who was still in her belly) a crochet item. I have started making things for her so many times in the past but never really loved anything enough to give her as a big “Thank You!” Last week I came across a pattern by Busting Stitches for a newborn suspenders and bow tie photo prop. That is the moment I decided I wanted to make clothing and a bow tie. I honestly wasn’t wanting to write a pattern but after searching and searching for a free boy clothing pattern…. I had no choice but create something of my own.
Wyatt (pictured above) is 13 lbs and is 4 months old. Since this is my first time really making clothing, I am not exactly sure if this outfit would be 0-3, 3-6, or 0-6 months in size- so “3 months” is what I will call it I did actually use measurements and 3-6 month clothing as a guide, but Wyatt is in 0-3 month clothing so “3 months” really seems safe. If you create these overalls, please share with me on Facebook!
This pattern is a very simple crochet pattern and ideal for even the crochet beginner. If you are not up for the “Foundation Chain” you can use the regular technique of chaining and shouldn’t have any issues.
This Yoda beanie is designed for an adult male with a 24 inch head circumference. When laying this beanie flat, it measures 11 inches across and is just over 8.5 inches tall. If you need a different size you can add rounds or you can use your favorite beanie pattern and just use the Yoda ears from this pattern. I also have a free 3-6 month size Yoda hat crochet pattern available. This pattern is a custom fit for a family member. If you are not sure of what size you need, I would suggest checking out the size chart at the bottom of the post that I discovered on Crochet In Color.
As most of you know, I do not sell very many items I create because I always want to make gifts for my family. Last week I decided to take a few custom orders. The first order was for this 3-6 month crochet Yoda hat. A friend of mine from Knot Your Nana’s Crochet had already made a Yoda hat pattern but its for child size. So if you need a larger size, be sure to check hers out! Also available is my own Adult Size Yoda Hat Pattern!! Now get hookin’!!
A couple days ago I found a beautiful free crochet pattern for a Cross Bangle designed by the Crochet Chiq. I knew right away that I wanted to make some bookmarks with her crochet pattern. For the last year I have searched countless times for the ideal cross to use as a bookmark. There are so many already out there to choose from but none of them were really my style or calling out my name. Thank you so much Crochet Chiq for designing this and sharing it with all of us!
I used crochet thread and a 1.9 mm crochet hook.
