This little ribbed crochet hat with ear flaps is perfect for 0-3 months. I first made my grandson this warm cosy ribbed hat with earflaps and a huge pom pom, when he was just a few weeks old. And it was a firm favourite throughout the winter. The Baby hat was crocheted using the Half double crochet Stitch, (HDC) and to create the ribbing effect the HDC is worked around the front of the previous rounds post (FPHDC)
A very quick last minute crochet gift idea for a new arrival.

Crochet Pattern for a Flat Elephant Toy Pattern
My daughter is in love with elephants. Especially since recently watching the new remade Dumbo* and her love for all things elephant since finding out she's about to become a mom, and the whole nursery is Elephants!
She asked me if I could crochet a really cute flat type stuffed elephant for Baby.I did the usual picked up my hook and started making. A little bit of trial and error I think he's turned out pretty cute.
This can be made any size - Bigger hook and Thicker yarn or Smaller,
using whatever you like really to make as you wish.
For the crochet elephants in the photo, I used a 3.500mm and cygnet kiddies supersoft
I was sent a picture to see if I would make a little cardigan I was delighted with the results of this pattern from Redheart
This crocheted sweater is available in sizes Newborn - 24 months, and is crocheted in a Double Knit making this a nice lightweight soft cardigan that is wearable at any time of year. I was asked to crochet his in Grey yarn which I ordered from HERE (*)
Please note: I made the sleeves in continuous rounds which kind of messed with the pattern, an di also made the collar 3 rows wider to allow the roll collar.
|12 point Star Baby Blanket Pattern|
I was considering just winging it and picking a stitch from a stitch from my favourite book which has over 200 stitch patterns each one beautiful and unique to make a baby blanket with. I Love this book it has lovely stitch patterns, afghan blocks, and lovely border patterns meaning you can mix and match and make endless unique crocheted blankets.
As I was looking online I found this rather colourful circular 12 point star afghan/blanket pattern and thought it would look fantastic in the chosen colours of Greys that the mum to be had chosen.
I suppose until we see something made we wonder how it looks so I carried on.
