A Girl’s Best Friend Diamond Pattern Hat


A little over three years ago I started up this tiny little blog with my first ever pattern, the Diamond Pattern Hat. I struggled FOREVER trying to help people who messaged me in facebook or emailed me understand how it was constructed and then decided that it would probably be better to put all that information up in a spot where everyone could just come to and find it on their own. I carefully edited a series of photographs and also recorded a very primitive film (done with an old Sony Cybershot balanced precariously on top of an oatmeal container…) and, for the most part, people seemed to appreciate the effort.

It’s the feedback I got from that very first post which inspired me and encouraged me to continue doing what I found that I really loved to do, and that’s to sit down and share what I love with all of you!

So today we’re going back to those humble beginnings as we revamp the diamond pattern hat into…A Girl’s Best Friend!

I’ve revamped the original video to this hat to put all of the parts into one cohesive tutorial and have streamlined it so that the important sections are shown without any distractions (such as background chatter or lots of unnecessary words).

CROCHET ASIAN KIMONO BABY SHOES

Simple Toddler Slippers


https://hodgepodgecrochet.wordpress.com: Simple Toddler SlippersToddler slippers are on the agenda today! I love making baby booties, but toddlers are running rampant throughout my house so they really make more sense for me to crochet.

In order to make a really simple toddler slipper, I’ve taken my Basic Baby Shoes pattern and revamped it so that it will fit a larger foot.

Anyone who has tried (and failed) to make two identical baby shoes will appreciate the simple, no fuss design of this very simple and basic pattern!

The finished project is approximately 6″ inches from heel to toe. Playing with the hook size will give you a little more wiggle room if you need them larger or smaller.

Interested in a complete printable pdf copy filled with extras you won’t find here in the blog pattern? You can find it only over in my Craftsy shop!
