Winter Fashion for Toddlers + Baby Crochet Patterns Notes: 

The ch3 will count as your 1st dc in each row, the next dc should be placed in the 2nd st. Except for the hood, where th ch3 will still count as the 1st dc BUT you will place the next dc in the same st, this is specified in the pattern as well. You can do color changes any way that works best for you. The method I use: Begin last dc in each row After the first yarn over and pull through you will have two loops remaining on hook, pull up new color and draw through last two remaining loops on hook. Tie tails tightly. There are two parts of the directions that require that you place stitch markers. This is so that you can properly line up the hood and the button holes. I recommend using yarn of an alternate color to mark these rows. You may want to use two different colors for the two different places where you need to mark. The sleeves are written using my seamless method.

Abbreviations and Stitches Used: CA- color A (grey) CB- color B (pink) CC- color C (blue) CD- color D (purple) CE- color E (green) fdc- foundation double crochet Chain 3 (counts as 1st fdc). Yarn over and insert hook in 3rd chain from hook. *Yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1 loop creating a sl st, (this is an important step but easy to forget). Yarn over again and pull through first two loops on hook (two loops remaining). Yarn over again and pull through last two loops on hook. This completes the second fdc (remember your 1st ch3 counted as the 1st fdc). To stitch the next fdc, yarn over and insert the hook into the sl st made in the 2nd fdc and repeat from *

Where you begin your finishing is very important. Be sure to start in the space you started the hood. Insert your needle in the ridge where the first row of the hood meets the body of the sweater. At the 1st st marker. The hood will be stitched around 3x. The body will only be stitched around 2x. The 2nd row around the hood will be dc. All other rows will be sc.

1. Attach CA and sc around the entire hood (to space evenly place 1sc in the ridge of every row and 1sc in the center of the ch in every row). Place 3sc in corners. Sl st to join row. 2. 1hdc in the next st (at the first set of stitch markers) 1dc in every st around the hood. When you get to your stitch markers at rows 3, 6, 9, 12 on either side, and when you get to the top (ridge) of the hood you will dc2tog. 1hdc in the last st of the hood (where you placed your first set of stitch markers). [1sc in the next st. Ch3. 1sc in the next st] to make 1st button hole (this first button hole should line up with the bottom ridge of the CA row, where it meets the CB row) Continue to sc around the body of the sweater placing button holes at the bottom of every CA (grey) row [1sc in the next st. ch3. 1sc in next st] . 3sc in corners.

Crocheted Hats Precious Puppy Dog Hat By: Sarah Zimmerman from Repeat Crafter Me

Kids will go crazy over this Precious Puppy Dog Hat. Whether or not you own a dog, this free crochet hat pattern is definitely a must-do. The pattern includes instructions for making multiple hat sizes, so you can make one for your newborn baby, for a toddler, and even for yourself! Begin with a magic ring. Ear flaps will keep you warm, and brown buttons for the eyes add a nice finishing touch.

Precious Puppy Dog Hat This image courtesy of repeatcrafterme.com Materials:  Vanna's Choice yarn: I used Oatmeal for the base of the hat. Rust, Pink and Dusty Blue for accent colors on the hats in the pictures displayed. Chocolate Brown for nose and mouth and White to sew the button eyes on and in the braided tails. All yarn can be purchase at lionbrand.com  Two 1" brown buttons for eyes Crochet hook size H-8 (5.0 mm)  Tapestry needle

Before we begin let me remind you of some basic directions you should follow while crocheting my hats: - Always start your rounds in the same stitch as your chain. - Always join your rounds to the first DC, NOT the chain. - Your last stitch should be in the stitch before your chain. - Do NOT count the chain 2 as a stitch.

Join to first DC with a sl st (24 stitches) fasten off. Leave a long end for sewing onto hat (or for sewing onto the other cookie if making a photo prop) Use a length of darker brown yarn for the chocolate chips. Thread it in a yarn needle and sew little “x’s or make french knots for the chips. If making a photo prop, you’d make two cookies. Hold them both together, wrong sides facing together and sew the two cookies together, making one double sided cookie! Putting it all together: (the part I hate the most! ) Take the black pupils and position on top of the white circles. For best results, align the side of one pupil with the inner edge of the white of eye either towards the top or bottom. Looking at pictures of cookie monster, his eyes are “googly”. If you look at the photos, I’ve got the pupils in opposite positions on the inner side of the white of the eye. I think it makes it cuter! Take your yarn needle and the long tail of the black yarn and sew it onto the white of the eye. Do both eyes Once the eyes are sewn together, position them towards the top of the hat, but not ALL the way at the top. Pin them in place if you need to. I just sort of winged it. Use the long tail of the white yarn and sew the eye onto the hat. Do both eyes. Take the mouth and center it below both eyes. Use the long tail of the black yarn and sew it onto the hat. Take your cookie. Position it on one bottom corner of the mouth as it it’s being eaten. Use the long tail of tan yarn to sew it to the hat!
