Free Pattern: Beanie with Crossed Texture Detail Row - 9-12 months


Premie size here.
Newborn size here.
3-month size here.
6-month size here.

I love this color combination, and the way the texture row looks like a headband with the flower on it.  I used the small version of the no-sew rose, the open version.

Pattern Update: Beanie with Crossed Texture Detail Row - Newborn

I thought this pattern could use some fresh pictures.  While I had the gorgeous yellow and grey Martha Stewart Crafts with Lion Brand Yarn extra soft wool blend out, I made a new version.  I love how it turned out!  Much cuter than the original.




Free Pattern: Triple Crochet Bubble Flower


This is the flower I used on the kid-sized lacy shells headwarmer pattern.  I love how the cluster makes a puff.  Though if I had made the chains bigger, it probably would have laid down flat - if yours isn't puffing up, try making the chains smaller.

Free Pattern: Lacy Shells Headwarmer - Kid Size



Adult size here.

This version of the adult lacy shells headwarmer pattern is a little smaller, for toddlers and small kids.  I decorated it with this flower.

Supplies:
Medium weight yarn
Size 5 mm hook
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Abbreviations:
Ch-chain
SC-single crochet
DC-double crochet
Sl st-slip stitch

Space-space between the second and third DCS in cluster.

Free Pattern: Lacy Shells Tie Back - All sizes



This is a tie-back version of the Lacy Shells Headwarmer - adult size here.  I was trying to make it in baby size, since it would be a super cute photo prop, or a headband for a special event.  But I knew the buttons would dig into baby's head, so I switched it to a tie-back.  What came about was different enough that I thought it would be worth doing in adult size, too!  I love tiebacks - they are great gifts, since you don't have to have the exact size.  And they are quick to make, so you can make bunches of them as accessories.

The baby size will stretch enough to work on a little kid - pictured below is my 2yo in the baby size.  Isn't she cute?  And the adult size will work on a bigger kid, the back of the thick part just almost touched on my 4yo's head.


Supplies:
Sport/baby weight yarn
Size 4 mm/G6 hook

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Abbreviations:
Ch-chain
SC-single crochet
DC-double crochet
Sl st-slip stitch

Space-space between the second and third DCS in cluster.

Free Pattern: Earflap Hat - Adult Medium/Large



Premie size here
Newborn size here
3-month size here
6-month size here
9-12 month size here
Toddler size here
Youth/Adult Small sizes here

The model for this adult medium size is my studly husband!  The large size just has an extra round, so the two row color change wouldn't work as nicely for the large size.  Love how this turned out in Patons Classic Wool.
