Baby Bobble Hoodie (Crochet Pattern)

My latest new crochet pattern is this cute Baby Bobble Hoodie. The pattern is currently only available in size newborn but sizes 0-6m and 6-12m are in testing right now. The pattern will be updated with the new sizes when they are ready. I know that this pattern has been highly anticipated so I wanted to get it out as quickly as possible for you.

The hoodie is made using double knit yarn and 5mm and 6mm crochet hooks. The pattern is easy to follow and is suitable for beginners, although basic knowledge of crochet is needed. I have written the pattern using US terminology and I have included photo tutorials for some of the less common stitches.

You can find the baby bobble hoodie pattern in my Etsy shop, alongside my other PDF patterns. Feel free to join us in my Facebook group to see more pictures, get feedback and ask any questions you may have.

Headband Earwarmer (Free Crochet Pattern)

This is another one of those patterns that I have made many of over the years. Headband earwarmers work up really quickly and look very cute. I think the thing I love the most is that they can be worn over a ponytail. That is something I have struggled with in the past, keeping the girls ears warm when they want to wear their hair up. They don’t like wearing a hat over their ponytail and to be fair, it does look pretty uncomfortable so I can see why they wouldn’t like it. This was our compromise. They get their ponytails and I get to cover their ears so I know they are warm ❤

To make your own headband earwarmer, you will need a 5mm crochet hook and double knit yarn in the colour of your choice. I let my girls choose their favourite colours, so I know there will be no fighting over wearing them. You will also need a tape measure, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.

This pattern should fit an age 6-10 years or up to about a 21″ head. The finished earwarmer should measure approximately 17.25″ in unstretched length and 3.25″ width.

Learn to Crochet: Single Crochet Stitch (VIDEO)

In my last two Learn to Crochet videos, I taught you which tools you really need to get started in crochet, and how to work a slipknot and chain. In this video, I am going to show you how to work the single crochet stitch. The single crochet stitch is one of the most basic crochet stitches, and one that I use most days, so it is definitely a useful stitch to know.

For this square, I used a 4mm crochet hook and double knit yarn. You can use whichever hook size and yarn you prefer, but please remember that a different sized hook or yarn will give different finished measurements. To start, you will need to make a slipknot and chain 22. To make the single crochet, insert your hook into the second chain from the hook. Catch the yarn and bring it through the chain, which should give you two loops on your hook. Catch the yarn again and bring it through both loops. You have just worked a single crochet.

You can now make a slipknot, chain and work a single crochet. Well done! You’re well on your way to becoming an expert crocheter.

Baby Hoodie (Crochet Pattern)

With the weather getting colder, I figured that now is the best time to release my baby hoodie pattern. I have been making these little baby hoodies for as long as I can remember and I finally managed to write my pattern down as a PDF. The pattern is currently available in sizes newborn, 0-6m and 6-12m. More sizes will be released when I have had chance to sit down and write up the PDF for them. I love that this baby hoodie is so cute and cosy. The hoodie can be made without the bear ears, but for me bear ears are always a plus, so they always get added.

The hoodie is made using double knit yarn and two different sized crochet hooks. The pattern is easy to follow and is suitable for beginners, although basic knowledge of crochet is needed. I have written the pattern using US terminology.

You can find the baby hoodie pattern in my Etsy shop, alongside my other PDF patterns and a few things I have crocheted and are ready made for sale. The toddler sized version of this pattern is available here, and for a combined pattern to fit from newborn to 4 years, click here.

Things I Made in August (Roundup)

This month I have been doing a lot of admin, so I haven’t had as much time to crochet as I would’ve liked. I still managed to make lots of cute things though, most of which are up for sale in my Etsy shop.

The first thing I made in August were these very cute baby sandals. I made them for a PDF pattern that I was designing. Both the PDF pattern and the finished sandals are available in my Etsy shop.

I also made some baby booties in three different colours, blue, lilac and beige. I love that these baby booties are so cute and gender neutral. The pattern can be found on my blog and the finished booties can be found on my Etsy shop.

I made lots of earsavers, for use with face masks. I love them because face masks leave me with really sore ears. I gave some to family and friends, and listed some in my Etsy shop. The pattern I used is my own, and is on my blog.

The last things I made in August were varying sizes of baby hoodies, with very cute baby bear ears, for a PDF pattern. The PDF pattern and the finished hoodies can be found in my Etsy shop.

Why not head over to my Facebook group and show us what you have been working on this month. We would love to see it.
