two new crochet projects

Lately, I have been playing with some wonderfully soft and delicious yarn. What a bliss! I started designing two new crochet projects and have been working on both of them at the same time. As I found out, it’s actually a lot of fun to work this way. I happily jump from one project to the other, never get bored and can choose the one that suits my current mood better. It might become my new working strategy, we’ll see.

I look forward to sharing more details with you soon.

With lots of love,

New Pattern – Crochet Hats For Baby’s First 3 Years

crochet pattern - crochet hats for baby's first year

With the colder days fast approaching I thought it would be good to make a hat for my little five months old baby. So I went ahead, did some yarn shopping (the sweetest thing everrr) and supplied my shelves with some really luscious and soft yarn, Red Heart Soft to be precise. Then I happily proceeded to making the hat and in the process of crocheting it I realized it would be sweet if I could create a whole set of hats, from newborn to 3 years old. That could come in really handy. So I did it and love this new collection. I will definitely use it to make hats for my little Mr.P as he gets bigger and I might even use it later when/if another little one arrives.

Of course, I have put together a pattern to share with you, perhaps you’ll find it handy too.

The pattern contains instructions for 5 hat sizes: newborn, 0-3 months old, 3-6 months old, 6-12 months old and 12-36 months old.

The hats have cute little ears, because, well, they are just so cute. The ears are not sewn to the hat but I used a little trick instead to attach them to the hat as they are being crocheted.

The pattern, as usual, includes a written part followed by a very detailed step-by-step tutorial (with 38 pictures).

You can find the pattern HERE and HERE.

New Pattern – Crochet Soft Toy Cube

Crocheted cubes are here! Crocheted cubes are here!

I love, love, love these.

As I wrote in my last post, the idea to make these was born as I was online shopping for toys the other day. I saw a cute cube and thought – hey, what if I could crochet that? And I happily did. My little boy already loves his cubes and enjoys rolling them around. It’s a sweet sweet toy.

Crochet Cubes Rule My World

Recently, while doing some online toy shopping for my little son, I stumbled upon a cute multi colored cube. I loved it. As I was just about to add it into my cart an idea popped up in my mind – what if I could make something similar with my yarn and hook? That could be fun. And I could finally make a first toy for my baby, the thing I was planning to do for quite some time.

I got really excited and started gathering my yarn immediately.

Right now I am posting this from cube heaven. I made many, frogged even more, and have come up with two designs so far. I carry the third one in my head – it should be a really happy one that I can’t wait to work on.

Cubes are so much fun!

I have now gotten into a state where I think I want to make so many of these soft toy cubes that my little Mr. P will be able to build a fort with them (not yet, since he is only 5 months old, but one has to get prepared). 🙂 And then I really want to make a big one that he can even sit on.

Cubes are really so much fun!

I will share more details about these projects soon. And of course, there will be patterns for you to enjoy.

Thanks for reading!

With lots of love,

Petra
