I love making items for babies. People love receiving the items I make. win-win situation
I came across this pattern several years ago and then forgot about it. It grabbed my attention again.
Intermediate level. Crocheted Soccasins by Megan Mills. http://megan.cc/Soccasins/
It's written with UK terms. All the dc's are US single crochet. Calls for wool yarn though I'm not sure what weight.(double knitting) I plan on playing and figuring that out.
Another cutie: http://megan.cc/BooteeDaisy/
Also, made with wool, guessing a fingering weight. She has the pattern available with US terminolgy.
The PRR babies will have warmer tootsies and the parents will hopefully like my gifts.
Please add your fave baby and kids crochet patterns.
Free Crochet Free pattern of the day 7-14-2011: Victorian baby cape (would probably work for child cape, too)
You have to sign up to get patterns and just say no to offers if you aren't interested.
My interest today is the mesh child cover up. age 2-5
Plan to upsize to adult and make it a tank top cover.
Ooooh, that would be so soft in Comfy and even Shine (adds a slickness of comfort to the skin).
For myself, I could use it in bed as this body torques so much, involving my poor neck, too.
