Crochet Bunny Hat and Diaper Cover Free Pattern

Hi Everyone!

It is almost the long weekend and time for Easter! I received some free fuzzy pink yarn recently and was wondering what I could make with it. Then I thought since it is almost Easter, I would make a bunny rabbit baby set with a hat and diaper cover. I thought it would be difficult to crochet with this yarn, but if you don’t have to undo it, it crochets like any other yarn. This is my first time designing a diaper cover pattern so there were some sections that I had to redo and adjust. I also adjusted the baby hat pattern for the bunny hat and made some ears to add on top.

Knitting Hat/Toque Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Need a last minute Christmas gift? I have the perfect pattern for you. This knitted hat uses bulky yarn and size 10.0 mm knitting needles so it will be worked up quickly. I used Loops and Threads Charisma yarn for this project, but you can use whatever bulky yarn you want to complete this hat.

4-2_wm1-3_wm

Here is the pattern:

Materials
10.0 mm (US 15) Knitting Needles
Bulky Yarn
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Pattern
CO 48 STs.
Row 1: Knit till end (48)
Row 2: Purl till end (48)

Repeat Row 1 and 2 until your piece measures the circumference of your head.  For the hat I made, I stopped after it measured 40 cm (16 inches) long and casted off.

Cast Off. Leave long tail to sew the sides and the tops of the hat together. I used the mattress stitch to sew the sides of the hat and just stitched the top of the hat until there were not holes anymore to complete the hat.

5-1_wm2-2_wm

Once you finish sewing the hat together you can weave in the ends.  I decided not to add a pom pom to this hat, but you can make some pom poms and attach it to the top of the hat to add a cute touch to the hat. I discuss pom pom making in the newborn Santa hat pattern.

Done! This hat is very basic so it will make the perfect last minute Christmas present! Have fun making your own bulky yarn knitted hat.

Crochet Newborn Baby Mittens Pattern

Hello Everyone!

This week’s blog post will feature a crochet pattern for baby mittens that I made using Loops and Thread’s Charisma Baby yarn in Coral. They had the yarn for sale at Michael’s so I decided to get some in different shades of pink and variegated  yarn. I am also working on a baby diaper cover that I will post about in a later post. Since the yarn is thick and the mittens are only for a newborn, this project worked up really quick! Let’s get started!

That’s it! The bright colour of the yarn is perfect for baby mittens and I really like how soft the yarn is so it was easy to work with. Unfortunately, I think this particular yarn has been discontinued, but there are many different baby soft yarns that are available to make these mittens with!

Felted Bear and Rabbit

Hi Everyone!

Today I want to share with you a couple of felting projects that I recently completed. I got two felting kits from a 2 dollar store called Daiso. You can find these kits on Ebay and Amazon if you can’t find them where you live. These kits come with all the supplies and the instructions you will need to make your own cute little felted animal. I do recommend getting a sponge of some sort to work on so you don’t damage any other surfaces or hurt yourself while you are felting.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The rabbit turned out better than the bear since I followed the measurements better when I was making the rabbit. I definitely recommend following the measurements that are provided in the instructions to make the felted animal look it’s best! Here are my results:

It takes a little getting used to, but after a little while the wool starts to take shape and you get to create cute little animals! These would make a really cute gift or even giving the kits would be a fun present for the crafty person in your life. Enjoy making your own!

Granny Square Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern with Flowered Edge

Hi Everyone!

This week’s pattern is a combination of a granny square blanket and a flowers in a row pattern  that I found from the Red Heart pattern page. I had originally wanted to make this for my mom, but as you know I much prefer to make baby items. This made made completing this project much quicker than expected. I had quite a few skeins of pale yellow from a sale bag at Michael’s and decided to use that for the granny square part and other light pastel colours for the flower rows. Let’s get started!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Material
4.25 mm (G) Hook
DK Yarn or Worsted Weight Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Pattern – Flowers in a Row

I found the pattern from Red Heart’s pattern page, but I chained 129 to make 42 flowers in a row.

Pattern – Granny Square in the Round

I followed the pattern from russm313’s instrutables page and continued make the granny square in the round until the size of the square matched the size of the flowers in the a row.

Once you complete both pieces of the blanket then you are ready to sew them together! You will want to leave a long tail for both pieces to sew them together. I matched the pieces together and then sewed them together by going through only the back loop of one side and then only the front loop on the other side so there is less of a bump when you finish sewing the pieces together.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This completes the granny square flower in a row blanket! Hooray! This blanket, the baby bonnet, and the diaper cover would make the perfect baby shower gift.

Crochet Water Bottle Cozy Pattern – Vancouver Canucks #10 Pavel Bure

Hi Everyone!

Back with another free pattern! How is everyone doing? I received a request recently to make a personalized water bottle cozy and thought it was an interesting idea. For those that don’t know, the Vancouver Canucks are a professional hockey team in the NHL and Pavel Bure was once a big part of this team. I have been a fan of this team since I can remember and really enjoyed this project. The bottle cozy uses single crochet worked in the round. For the personalization, I followed the instructions of Sarah and Alli and also some free hand crochet for the stripes. I think it turned out really cute and am glad I got a request for it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Materials
4.25 mm (G) Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn
Tapestry Needle
Scissors
Glue (optional)

Abbreviations
SC – Single Crochet
MR – Magic Ring
SLST – Slip Stitch
ST – Stitch
BKLO – Back Loop Only
CH – Chain
FO – Finish Off

Pattern
Bottle Cozy

Note: Place a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

Round 1: 6 SC in MR. Do not SLST into first ST. (6)

Round 2: 2 SC in each ST around. (12)

Round 3: *2 SC in next ST, SC in the ST after that.* Repeat from * to * around. (18)

Round 4: *2 SC in next ST, SC in the next two STs after that.* Repeat from * to * around. (24)

Round 5: *2 SC in next ST, SC in the next three STs after that.* Repeat from * to * around. (30)

Round 6: *2 SC in next ST, SC in the next four STs after that.* Repeat from * to * around. (36)

**You can stop increasing here and ignore Rounds 7 and 8 if the base of your bottle is the same size as your piece with a little room on the side. The extra little space will make putting the water bottle in easier. Continue from Round 9. **

Round 7: *2 SC in next ST, SC in the next five STs after that.* Repeat from * to * around. (42)

Round 8: *2 SC in next ST, SC in the next six STs after that.* Repeat from * to * around. (48)

**Rounds 7 and 8 show the pattern in which the increases happen for the base of the bottle cozy. You can stop after Round 7 or even increase past Round 8 to fit the bottle you have.**

Round 9: SC into the BKLO of each ST around. (36, the stitches around will correspond to the number of STs you have in your final increase round.)

Round 10 – 34: SC into each ST around. (36)

**You can do more or less rounds of Rounds 10 – 34 if your bottle is longer or shorter than the one displayed. You will want to stop about 1.5 cm or 0.5 inches from the top of your bottle.**

Round 35: SC into each ST around. SLST into the first ST. (36)

FO. Weave in ends.

Stripes

Round 1: CH 36 or enough to fit around your bottle cozy with the bottle inside. SLST into first ST to form a ring.

Round 2: CH 1. SC in same ST and around. (36)

**Repeat Round 2 for thicker stripes**

SLST into first ST of round to FO.

FO. Leave long tail to sew stripe onto bottle.

Letters

For the letters, I followed the instructions from Sarah’s Repeat Crafter Me Blog for her Animal Alphabet Afghan.

Once you complete the chains for the letters, I found it easier to sew the pieces together and form the letters first then sew it onto the bottle cozy or use glue to attach them.

Numbers

For the numbers, I followed the instructions from Alli’s Alli Crafts Blog from her Number Appliques series of patterns.

Since the numbers were larger than the letters it was much easier to just sew them onto the bottle cozy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sewing on everything took some time, but it was worth it! You can change the colours, letters, and numbers to make a personalized water bottle cozy for just about any sports team.

Enjoy making your own or as a present!
