Springtime Beanie- Free Pattern

I’m afraid I’m a little bit behind this week, as I haven’t gotten a chance to post my WIP Wednesday yet (not sure if I will, truth be told), but I can at least re-blog this pattern from January 2016. In some parts of the world it’s still cool enough for a springtime hat? I know that here in Albuquerque it’s more like summer. The socks have come off and the sandals are out of the closet ☀️😁
I’ve been thinking about revising this pattern, but for now I’m just working through my yarn stash, before I buy more!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy! Stay cool!

Crochet On The Brain

Still using up my leftover’s, I made this hat following the pattern I created for the You Are My Sunshine Infants Hat Pattern. There are a few differences, however.  First of all, I used size 5 crochet thread and a 3.25 mm hook, rather than yarn and the larger hook. Secondly, this one fits an adult, and I didn’t make a pattern for a child sized one (although going by gauge and textbook measurements, I could guess at the pattern for a child sized, if you’re interested). And last but not least, there is no pointy little brim on it, just a trim of hdc’s.

Scrap Busting Cotton Facial Scrubbies- Free Pattern

This is a very simple, basic pattern. There are no special stitches, and there is nothing fancy whatsoever in their appearance. If you just want a quick project, you want to use up your little cotton leftovers, or you are just beginning to learn how to crochet in the round (and want tons of practice!), then this pattern is perfect for you!


A Trio Of Baby Bibs- Free Pattern

This week’s reblogged post is a baby bib pattern I designed about 2 1/2 years ago. These bibs hold up extremely well, and look nice in any color. I still use the bibs I made here with Olivia when she eats something really messy, like spaghetti. I particularly like the buttoned bib myself, as it’s easier to get done up and doesn’t get tangled in Olivia’s hair.
