Button Up Waves Hooded Cocoon Pattern Release

Are you searching for a fun and new baby item? Well, here it is...

The Button Up Waves Hooded Cocoon!

An adorable hooded cocoon made in a luxurious wave stitch (see close up in last image) makes this a must have pattern for baby! What a fun and one of a kind gift this would be. 

The hooded cocoon is more of a sleeping bag than a tight cocoon that can be difficult to squeeze the baby into. It buttons on both sides to allow for easy placement in and/or out. The edge of the cocoon, just below the chin, features a rolled edge look that is simple but clean looking. The hood features a ribbed edging to give it a cozy look around the babies face. This cocoon is made as one piece and the pattern includes sizes 0-3 month, 3-6 month, and 6-12 month.

You can get your copy on: Ravelry or Craftsy

Check out a close up of the beautiful wave stitch:

Animal Stuffy Set - Pattern Release

You have all seen the adorable bonnet/stuffy sets out there. I have even released a few. But each time I do someone asks for just the stuffy pattern. So here goes!

Grab your copy on Ravelry / Craftsy / Etsy

The stuffy pattern includes the Teddy Bear, Fox and Bunny Stuffies. They are about 7 inches tall, the bunny does measure 8 inches when including the tall ears. These are adorable to add to a newborn gift with a blanket, bottle or jumper set. The stuffies will also fit nicely in a Christmas stocking or Easter basket.

I hope you enjoy the pattern set. 
If you are interested in the bonnet/stuffy set patterns check out my etsy shops.

Grease Monkey Cap Pattern Release

A few years ago I had a photographer contact me about a custom hat that she wanted to go with one of her new props. If you know me, this is what I love! She sent me a picture and we worked together through a few different designs until we got it right. What do you think?

The Grease Monkey Cap fit the picture perfect! I love how it came together and it is now a new pattern released from My Sweet Potato 3 Patterns

Grab your copy on:

The vintage look of the Grease Monkey Cap is seen in the entire design. The hat is made to sit above the ears (not cover them like most traditional crochet hats). The brim is made extra long to help create that vintage "flip" look. There are directions on where to fold the brim to get it to flip correctly. The pattern includes sizes from newborn up to adult. Here a a few views of the hat from the front and side (excuse the baby watermelon, it was the only thing that was the right size for a 12 month hat).


Just for fun, here is the original image I was sent as a sample.

Make sure you come and have some fun on with Sweet Potato 3 Patterns on Facebook. Don't miss out on new pattern releases, promotions/sales and other crochet fun!

Easter Egg Display Crochet Pattern

Remembering my Grandmother and her love of thread crochet is what inspired the Easter Egg Display Pattern. Each year my Mom displays a large egg with Easter trinkets inside that my Grandma made. It wouldn't be Easter at Mom's without that out on the entryway table. I wanted to bring some of that into my own home and so I created a much smaller version with more detailed design and I hope you like it to.


 The Easter Egg Display features a chevron pattern around the main part of the egg with a simple pattern on the top and bottom. The bottom is made flat so it can stand by itself. The pattern includes instructions on how to starch (stiffen) the final egg using household items. The Easter Egg Display stands about 10" tall and is about 8" wide. What a fun gift for Easter or a great memory your kids can have as you bring out the Display each year.
