Ingrid Baby Bonnet

A Free Crochet Pattern





I have another baby crochet pattern to share with you. This is a great heirloom piece that can be passed from generation to generation. This is not a beginner friendly pattern, but all of the techniques used to make the bonnet have been used before with patterns from this blog. I use the attached i-cord in this basket pattern here, and I use the fptr stitches in this cowl pattern here. This pattern takes me around 3 hours to make and I can get 2 bonnets (smallest size) out of one 50g. skein of yarn. I can usually find Stroll yarn for around $3.00 so this is a great project with a good profit margin for fairs.


I love the clean lines of this design. It is a simple 2 row pattern that has a big impact of texture. I hope you enjoy this pattern. On the blog you will find the smallest size which would fit a newborn to 6 month baby for free. If you would like to purchase the pattern PDF of the pattern I have it for sale for $3.00 (usd). The PDF version of the pattern has the written instructions for 3 sizes up to 24 months.




Where Can I get this pattern?


This is a free crochet pattern on the blog. Just keep scrolling down to see this pattern. By having it free on the blog I am able to promote the pattern more and share it with more people. I also feel that I bring some trust to my readers who can read through the pattern before they decide if they want to purchase the pattern.

If you would like to purchase this pattern that is ads free and printer friendly, it is available for Download through my Ravelry Store For $3.00. for the first week you can get it for $1.00 (usd).

Ruth's Kitchen Towel

A Free Knitting Pattern


It's been a while since I have shared a free knitting pattern. I recently made a crochet version of this towel. You can find it on Ravelry here. When I was finished with it I knew I wanted to make a knit version and so here it is. 

This is the hanging kitchen towel you always wanted. It is soft with the perfect subtle texture to get your hands dry. It is constructed just right so that it will hang in place without going anywhere.  Make a couple of matching dishcloths for the perfect house warming gift.

Holt Bag

A Free Crochet Pattern



My great grandma Holt loved a good accessory. She had an extensive collection of rings, handbags and scarves. Oh the joys of being a little girl and getting permission to go in her closet to look at it all. When I was asking my sister what I should name this bag she suggested I name it after Grandma Holt. I'm pretty sure she would have loved this bag and the fact that I even make things for a profit. She herself was a very independent woman, and I am always thankful of the example she made.

This is a fun belt bag, that has a great art-deco look to it. My favorite kinds of bags are bags that are hands free. It is a quick project. I'm able to complete it in under 4 hours, and that is including putting in a liner.

I think we are all in need of some freshness and beauty and this cowl brings it all. I chose blue, but I think this cowl would look fabulous with a cream and green or a yellow scheme.

The construction is very simmilar to my other stranded work cowls. It makes it easy and you don't have to worry so much about tension. The design is pretty forgiving; if you miss a wrong color somewhere no one is going to know.

Sweet Pea Diaper Cover

A Free Crochet Pattern






It has been forever since I have designed a baby pattern. It's one of my favorite things to do, so I have no idea why I don't do it more often. My cousin recently had a baby and that got me in the mind to make a few baby things. Also the world is a bit crazy right now so why not do what I love the most.

The pattern below is for the newborn size only, but I have graded the pattern to include sizes up to 12 months. Those sizes are available in the PDF in my shops. This diaper cover is designed to be a high wasted diaper cover.  If you want something a little shorter then you will need to reduce your rows.

This is a quick pattern I was able to complete it in under 4 hours, so if you need something quick this will be a great pattern to use. I won't say that it is beginner friendly but it is pretty close.

This pattern also uses some Tunisian crochet. The stitches are used for the waist and leg bands. You don't need any special hook for the stitches the hook you always use will be great. But I wanted you to be aware that those stitches are in the pattern so you can prepare if you don't know how to make the Tunisian knit of Tunisian purl stitch. Even I you don't know there is a full description of how to make those stitches in the pattern and this would be a great practice piece because there are not very many.

Isla Cowl

A Free Crochet Pattern


I love a good cozy cowl, don't you? I especially love one that I can manipulate and change to suit my needs. So I'm providing you a pattern for one. Cowls with button bands are so versatile and easy to make. You basically make a rectangle and add buttons. Easy Peasey. I have added some cabling for some visual texture. I have also used bulky yarn to make this a quick project.
