New Pattern: Children's Classic Sweater!


This Pattern will be emailed to you as a PDF file.

YAY! I have been working on this pattern for months, and it is finally here!

This is a fun and adorable crochet pattern for a Classic style childrens sweater. It is sure to become a favorite! It is crocheted in one piece from the top down with the sleeves and collar added after the body is crocheted. Features a ribbed collar, and sleeves that are stretchy (knit like). It is designed to be a pullover sweater. The pattern includes instructions for short sleeves, but you could easily crochet long sleeves by adding rows.

This pattern includes 10 different sizes so that you can make any childrens size: Newborn, 6 months, 12 months, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6/7, 8, and 10/12. Each size is written out seperately to make it much easier to understand. It does include a few pictures so that you can see what your sweater should look like. In the pictures, I am making the newborn size, so keep in mind that if you are making a larger size yours will be a lot bigger with more stitches and rnds. This sweater is designed to be a ‘fitting sweater’, so if you would like a more loose sweater, you can crochet one size up.

The gauge is included in the pattern as well as instructions to crochet a small square to measure. Save time, check your gauge so that your sweater will turn out the right size Also included is a size chart which includes the finished chest measurement, and the finished length of each size.
You will need DK (light worsted weight) number 3 yarn, an F/5-3.75MM hook (or hook needed to obtain gauge), and a sharp needle to weave in your loose ends.
This crochet pattern has been tested by 10 different crocheters. Please let me know if you have any questions!

TUTORIAL: Doll Diaper plus Pattern!

This weekend I made diapers for my little girl's doll.  I probably made more than she needs, but it was so much fun to watch her face light up as I got each one of them finished! 
I designed the pattern to fit her Bitty Baby Doll.  But, I also realize that some of you may have a different size doll....  So, I made the waistband adjustable.  It may not fit all of your dolls and stuffed animals, but this will make it more likely to.

I wanted it to be a nice and tight fit so that we could fit the doll's pants over the diaper, and it worked out well!

Today I am excited to share the tutorial with you.  Here is what you will need: 1/4 yard or a fat quarter of cotton fabric.  Coordinating thread 1/2" sew in Velcro.  I have tried the stick on kind, and didn't like it.  It eventually comes off.  If you try to sew it on, it will gum up your needle and the needle will have to be replaced.  I highly recommend the sew in kind that is not sticky. Before starting, you will need …

The gauge doesn't matter so much for this pattern because you aren't making an article of clothing that needs to fit someone.  I do tend to crochet very tight (tighter than normal) when I am making amigurumi so that the stuffing doesn't show through.  But, if you want your t…

TUTORIAL: American Girl Crochet Hat

Lately, I have been having so much fun making my girls clothes for their dolls.  My latest project was these cute crochet hats.  They fit nice and tight, and I love the way they look on the dolls.  I am sharing the pattern with you today so that you can make a few for your dolls too!

The yarn I used for this hat I purchased online from  It is called Cotton Classic Yarn.  They have changed their website up a bit and I haven't been able to find it recently, so I am not sure if they are still selling it.  This is my favorite yarn for crocheting Doll hats, so I hope I can find some more in the future. 

Materials Needed:
DK weight yarn (#3)
Crochet hook size: F  5/3.74 MM
