SIMPLE Pretty Princess Crown – FREE Crochet Pattern

20150420_183725

Do you have a little princess that loves to play dress-up? This is a perfect and simple accessory to make to let their imagination take them to far off places of castles, dragons and Prince Charming. My daughter, to no surprise, was very excited about this pattern. She was jumping up and down next to me while I wove in the ends. She still puts it on first thing when she gets home!

Here she is:

This is my first pattern that comes in different sizes! I used my “techy” hat calculator to determine my stitch counts for the circumferences of the crowns. There are 4 sizes: 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-3 years and 4+ years.

This pattern is written in US TERMS. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Bunny Ear Baby Teether

wpid-20150405_153437.jpg

So Easter weekend I gave myself a break from the Mystery CAL (even though it could put me behind ahead) and made a few gifts for my 5 month old niece. Both patterns are from One Dog Woof. The first was this adorable bunny ear teether. You can find the FREE pattern here.

I used some scrapes of I Love This Cotton™ yarn that I had. I chose a cotton yarn because it is softer and easier on baby’s mouth. This was so quick and easy to whip up. Using a lark’s head knot to attach the ears to the ring along for easy removal and cleaning.

Here is what it looks like unattached:

My only delay was I could not find the wooden rings at the store I was at. My mom came to the rescue and brought some 2″ rings on Easter Sunday. I would recommend at least using the 2.5″ rings she suggests on the blog. It was a little tough to pull the ears through, but my niece didn’t seem to mind!

 

Double Strap Mary Jane Bootie

wpid-20150405_100843.jpg

So Easter weekend I gave myself a break from the Mystery CAL (even though it could put me behind ahead) and made a few gifts for my 5 month old niece. Both patterns are from One Dog Woof. The first was an adorable bunny ear teether. The second was a pair of Mary Jane Booties. You can find the FREE pattern here. I had posted the link on my Facebook page and my sister instantly commented that I  must make a pair so I surprised her Sunday. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! It has been a while since I have made shoes.

I used some scrapes of I Love This Yarn™ in Rosy Cheeks and Vanna’s Choice™ in brown. Making the straps tripped me up a little, but I was misreading her instructions. Be careful at that step and reference her photos for help.

These booties are great for beginner walkers! Her double strap design allows to the bootie to be secure and a little more challenging for little hands to take off. She also gives the tip that just by changing your size hook will give you a different size bootie. No need to adjust your stitches!

This ruffled hat will not only keep you warm but it is stylish as well. The ruffle adds a small brim to the hat and the ridges give it some texture. It reminds me of a hat from the 20s so Downton Abbey fans will love this! The button ruffled flower is a great applique for this hat too!
