Baby Beanies

Well I know it has been awhile since I posted anything but I have been away for about two months and am just now getting back to my routine??!!??

Anyways, I haven’t had the opportunity to do much sewing but have some super ideas on the back burner which I hope to be sharing soon.  I did have the opportunity to do some crocheting while I was gone and just wanted to share with you some of my projects.

I have designed and crochet a new baby girl beanie and baby boy beanie, which I think are adorable and have them available in various sizes (0-3 mos. 3-6 mo. 6-9 mo. 9-12 mo.).








Also, worked up a really CUTE ruffled flower for the little girl beanie but it is something you could be very creative with and attach it to any of your specific projects.  SONY DSC

Crochet a few more simple baby beanies that I will be donating to our local hospital but will also work on some larger sizes to donate to community shelters as the weather gets colder.SONY DSC

Created a fun can cozy too, just couldn’t help myself!!  Perfect to keep your tables from getting water spots (no coaster needed) plus keeps hands dry.  SONY DSC

Will be sharing some of these items on Ravelry too.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer or are looking forward to summer and keep those creative juices flowing!!

Crochet Beanies for Donations

We are having a beautiful Spring day and I thought I would take just a moment to share a picture of some of the baby beanies that I have made.  Hopefully, giving you some fresh ideas that can be made from this quick, simple pattern.   I am donating these to our local hospital’s maternity ward for the newest arrivals!!

Also, I did knit two preemie sized beanies from a free Red Heart pattern that I tweaked a bit.   If you are interested in that pattern, let me know and I will tell you what I did.


As you can see, I used several different solid colored baby yarns, a variegated brown and pink baby yarn, two shades of pink for one and I made one by crocheting a solid blue baby yarn and a solid white baby yarn together.

Using different sizes of hooks and weights of yarn gives you a nice variety of shapes and sizes.

For my next batch, I think I will add some pompoms to the tops and/or little appliques.  Hope you have as much fun creating these beanies as I have!!

Simple Crochet Scalloped Edge Scarf

Wow, can’t believe how fast winter is approaching so here’s a pretty easy crochet pattern for a cozy scarf.  It’s simple because it is repetitious and a good design that can be worked while watching TV.   Also, you will have a lot of design flexibility with this pattern to fit your specific needs.

My example is made using one skein (50 grams/183 yards) Plymouth Yarn, Dreambaby DK, and a size G (4.00mm) hook.   I am crocheting my scarf for a toddler (2-year-old) so my width is only about 4″  but you can design your scarf to any width as long as your chain stitches are a multiple of 3 (any number of chains that can be evenly divided by 3).

I used the single crochet foundation chain for my beginning base.  For my example, I completed a total of 15 single crochet foundation chains.  Do not turn your work.

15 SC foundation chains







In the 3rd chain from hook, you will work 2 double crochets (DC), 2 chains, and 1 single crochet (SC) in that one chain (2 dc, ch 2, 1 sc).   * Skip the next 2 chains and crochet your pattern again (2 dc, ch 2, 1 sc) in that chain.  Repeat from * until your first row is completed.  Do not turn.

Crochet 2 chain stitches and now you will begin working along the back side of your foundation chains.  In first stitch *(2 dc, ch 2, 1 sc),  skip next 2 chains and repeat from * until you reach the end of the row ending with your (2dc, ch 2, 1 sc).  Turn.

**Chain 2, skip the first SC, and in the ch 2 space work (2 dc, ch 2, 1 sc), *skip the next 2 dc and 1 sc, and in next ch 2 space work your scallop stitch (2 dc, ch 2, 1 sc) again.  Repeat from * until the end of the row.  You will skip the last 2 dc, turn, and repeat from **.  Continue this crochet pattern until you have the finished length that you want for your scarf.

Pattern design

For the toddler pattern, I like to have my length around 40″ so the scarf can be folded in half and slide the two ends through the fold to loosely secure it around the child’s neck and tuck inside their coat.  Remember, the length can be whatever fits your design.
