Baby Hoodie- Free Pattern Link

I just finished making this sweet little hoodie for Olivia, using the Caron Simply Soft yarn that I bought last weekend. Now I am beginning the ribbed pom pom hat that goes with it. The pattern called for two colors, but I decided to make it with just one 🙂


UPDATE- October 16, 2015

I guess I was in such a rush yesterday, I forgot to post the link to the free pattern on Yarnspirations. So, here it is: Baby Hoodie & Hat Pattern.

Also, I’ve decided to not make the hat that goes with it, as there are some problems with how it’s written (the # of stitches needed, etc.), and I don’t feel like figuring it out, lol. Olivia has many hats already anyhow.

Also, while I did the 18 month old sizing, Olivia is only 9 days away from being 11 months old, and the hoodie just fits her nicely. Actually, the sleeves could’ve been longer, but overall it fits well. I checked the gauge, and mine matches up with what the pattern states. So keep that in mind should you try this pattern. Depsite everything, I am still very happy with it. It worked up nice and quickly, and aside from the hat issue, I had no problems making it.

Have a wonderful day!


Olivia’s Almost One!- Free Pattern Link


My daughter Olivia, pictured above, is nearing One Year Old already! (She’s only a few weeks old in the photo)  I really don’t have a clue where the time goes to. One minute I’m in the delivery room, the next she’s trying to walk!

I’m trying to decide what to make her to mark this milestone. Clothing? A toy? Something she’ll hopefully treasure forever, and possibly pass on to her children.

While I am figuring this out, I want to share the pattern for the sweater and hat set shown in the photo above. The pattern is called “Twin Sweater Set” and is available for free from  HERE and comes in sizes newborn, 6 months and 12 months. The sizing I followed was obviously newborn.

I actually finished making this little set for her only a couple of hours before I went into labor with her. She grew so fast she only got to wear the outfit a few times. But it’s stowed away in a box in the closet with her other memories.

I hope that if you decide to make this little set, it will be treasured forever just as the one I made will be.

Enjoy your weekend!
