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.
