Sweet Braids Hat Pattern Release

Well, it is officially October!
Time to bust out the hats and gloves and stock up on hot cocoa and apple cider.
But wait, today may be cold and blustery but tomorrow may be sunny and warm. Our weather in Idaho changes with no warning. And that is one reason the Sweet Braids Hat is perfect for this time of year.
The Sweet Braids hat has a fun open stitch that is great for the changing weather. The hat is made in an open stitch while the braids accentuate the base of the hat with a slightly scalloped edging gives this hat just enough of a girl touch. The pattern comes in sizes the following sizes: preemie, newborn, 3-6 mo, 6-12 mo, 12-24 mo, child, adult.

Herringbone Brimmed Beanie Pattern Release

Boys can be so hard to find a good hat pattern for. So I was on the hunt to design something perfect for those boys in our lives. The request I kept hearing from my kids and many of their friends was that they wanted it to cover more of their neck and shade their eyes. I also kept seeing visor beanies at the stores and so I grabbed my hook and yarn and went to work.


It didn't take long before the Herringbone Brimmed Beanie came to life. 
My boys are thrilled with it and I hope you like it too. The herringbone stitch is a turn change of pace to work (the pattern does include a photo tutorial on how to work it). 

The Herringbone Brimmed Beanie can be found on:

Here are some more views of the beanie. Thanks for looking and join my on facebook to see all new releases, sales and giveaways.

Gift for Eliza

It is kind of ironic that when my friends have a baby I turn to other patterns to try out. This week a dear friend of mine had a little girl, Eliza. I am so excited to go see them on Wednesday so of course I had to make a hat for them and I always enjoy adding some booties to match.
Now, doesn't this hat and baby shoes go perfect together? I just love how they turned out especially in the soft cream and coral colors (I used Caron Simply Soft for this project). 

If you love this set, then I have to share a secret with you....
Both patterns are completely free!

The lovely hat is by Alice and the Mock Turtle, it is called the Itty Bitty Bow Beanie. The pattern was easy to follow but here is a helpful hint: on the repeat rows (rows 7-13) make sure you join in top of the first double crochet, not the sc. This did confuse me for a bit until I reread the instructions, then it went quickly. The lovely combination of stitches made this hat fun to make and I love the little boy!

The cute baby shoes almost look like little ballet slippers and are the easiest and quickest baby shoes I have ever made. This beautiful pattern is called the Little Dot Mary Janes by Whistle & Ivy. I did have to go up a hook size to get the right measurements (used hook G). The pattern was written for a little girl that was battling cancer so she asks that you make a donation. I am going to make an extra set to add to my Cancer Charity Challenge.

I hope you enjoy the set and the links to the patterns.
