I am not a huge fan of bulky cowls or really thick scarves, and it may be that I live in the hot south, but this would be something that I would wear and would make for gifts! It's super fun and simple and looks great in a variegated yarn like this I Love This Yarn! Stripes. It's a medium weight and super easy to create and only has 19 rows!

If you need a cute pair of sandals for your little baby girl, then these are a quick and fun addition to the wardrobe! I designed these with not only cuteness in mind, but with a little bit of the beach in mind, too. I know that these would be easy to create, wear and get lots of compliments. I have it written from newborn to approximately 12 months, but if you used a thicker yarn, you could have a naturally larger sandal! It's fun and a great way to try a crochet sandal pattern.

This super soft blanket is made with bulky yarn and a 9.0mm hook....and works up in one night. I loved working with the Yarn Bee Romantique, which adds the fuzzy look and texture to this blanket. If you wanted to substitute the yarn or make it a different size, I have instructions on how to do so in the pattern. I can't wait to gift this blanket and make another (just so I can use the yarn!).

Do you need a cute and quick pair of slippers? Well, these are the ones for you! By using the basic stitches, these are created from the sole up. Mix and match colors to fit the style you want and crochet from there! I love these because they are 1) basic enough to try even if you're a beginner and 2) cute enough to make over and over for gifts! Enjoy this pattern and have fun watching your little ones wear them.
Quick note, if you are intimidated by shoes, don't be! I've heard so many people say, " I can't make shoes," or "I can't do that, my shoes will turn out two different sizes." Well, let me tell you, this is easy. The stitches are basic, not surprises and if you can make your stitches consistently the same size, and match the gauge for the pattern--then you're good to go. So, give it a try and if you have any questions, post them below the pattern and I'll answer there.
