Free Crochet Pattern: Newborn Holland Hat

Even though it is still winter where I live, I am ready for spring.  I have been thinking about all the things that I can make with crochet flowers.  This hat is one of them!  It would be cute for a newborn girl any time of the year but especially in celebration of the arrival of spring!  I made this hat with a 100% cotton yarn- Willow Meadow from Willow Yarns.  This is the softest cotton that I have ever worked with and I really enjoy crocheting with it.  

Materials needed:
• U.S. G- 4.0 MM crochet hook
• Worsted weight yarn (one that's on the thinner side)- used here:
          -Color A: Willow Meadow in Cream
          -Color B: Willow Meadow in Peony
          -Color C: Willow Meadow in Phlox
• Tapestry needle for sewing in the ends 

• MR= magic ring
• ch= chain
• sc= single crochet
• hdc= half double crochet
• dc= double crochet
• sl st= slip stitch

Finished size:
• Newborn- to fits 12-13" head circumference (to make the hat bigger, just add more increase rows and increase the straight rows to make the hat as long as you would like)

1: With Color A, MR, ch 1 (does not count), 10 hdc in ring.  Join with sl st in the top of the first hdc, not the ch 2. (10)
2: Ch 1, (2 hdc in the first stitch, 1 hdc in the next stitch) around.  Join with sl st in the top of the first hdc. (30)
3: Ch 1, (2 hdc in the first stitch, 1 hdc in the next two stitches) around.  Join with sl st in the top of the first hdc. 
4: Ch 1, (2 hdc in the first stitch, 1 hdc in the next three stitches) around.  Join with sl st in the top of the first hdc. 

After round 4, my flat circle measured 3.5".  If you are not close to this measurement, adjust hook size as necessary to get as close as possible to 3.5".

5-10: Ch 1, hdc in each stitch around.  Join with sl st in the top of the first hdc. 
11-15: Ch 1, *skip the first stitch and hdc in the next, hdc in the stitch that you skipped (to form an "x" stitch)*, repeat from * to * around.  Join with an invisible join and weave in all ends.

At the end of round 15, my hat measured 4.25" from the crown to the bottom of the brim.

Flowers (Make 3- I made 2 with Peony & 1 with Phlox):
1: MR, ch 1, 5 sc in ring, pull to close, join with sl st into the first sc.

2: Ch 2, 3 dc in the same stitch, ch 2, sl st into the same st, *sl st into the next stitch, ch 2, 3 dc in the same stitch, ch 2, sl st into the same st*.  Repeat from * to * around

To make the center part of the flower, attach your contrasting color to the back of the flower.  I do this by tying a knot with the contrasting color to the long tail of the main color.

Next use a tapestry needle to pull the contrasting color up through the center of the MR and then down at one spot on the first petal, repeat again so that you have two lines on the first petal.

Then repeat the above around so that each petal has two lines going from the center to one part of the petal.

Repeat this for all three flowers.

Then attach the flowers to the hat and tah-dah!  Finished!

Tutorial: How to Add a Zipper to a Crochet Pouch

I have been crocheting tons of pouches lately and I love lining them with a coordinating fabric and finishing them with a zipper.  I'm not an expert at sewing by any means, but this method works for me.  I use it every time and I am always happy with the results.  I hope you enjoy this tutorial! In the pictures shown in this tutorial, I am lining the Lee Change Purse .  But, this method will work for any pouch...just adjust the fabric and zipper sizes. Materials needed- for the fabric lining & zipper (if desired): • 5" zipper • Fabric- 2 pieces that are roughly 5" high by 6"wide •Needle & thread •Sewing machine (optional) •a few ball head straight pins Finished size: • Lee Change Purse- 4" high by 5" wide Making the Lining: 1. Cut out 2 pieces of fabric that are about 1/2-inch larger around than your pouch. 2. Lay one piece of the fabric, right side up, on your worktop.  Place the zipper, right side up, on top of t

Free Crochet Pattern: Emerson Car Seat Cover or Baby Blanket

I love the concept of car seat covers/canopies.  When you use a regular blanket instead, it is always falling off and you are constantly picking it up off the ground.  A car seat cover covers and protects your baby for cold weather, rain, snow, bright sun, you name it and it hooks on the handle bar so it ALWAYS stays in place!  I absolutely love it and if you have a baby in an infant seat, you NEED to make one of these to see how great it is. PLEASE REMEMBER, it is dangerous to have your baby covered up in their car seat for long periods of time.  This cover is NOT meant for that.  This cover is only meant to be used when you are walking from your house to your car, store to car, school to car, and the is meant to protect your baby from rain, snow, strong wind as you are walking from the places mentioned above.  It is not meant to be left on the car seat when you are driving, sitting somewhere, going to a long walk or stroller ride, or anywhere else for longer than a minut

Free Crochet Pattern: The Greene Pom Pom Scarf

I have been working on fall/winter items for my kids lately.  I came up with this scarf (there's a matching hat coming soon too!).  I love the color block look.  I showed my daughter yarn and asked her to pick out 2 colors and then I added the cream.  I used Cascade Yarns Pacific here.  I am loving this yarn lately.  I have used it to make hats, blankets, amigurumi, you name is quickly becoming one of my go to yarns. This scarf is super simple.  I have written the pattern in 3 sizes but you can easily customize it to be any size you want.  I use a pom-pom maker for my pom-poms but you can find a tutorial online if you don't have a pom-pom maker or if you want to make it without one. Materials needed: • U.S. I/9- 5.5 MM crochet hook • Cascade Yarns Pacific in 3 colors- used here: 37 Clover, 52 Geranium, 01 Cream (you can easily substitute any other yarn, your  finished size may change though) • Tapestry needle for sewing in the ends  • Clover pom-po
