Crochet Swim Cover

A friend gifted me some lovely fingerling yarn but I do not (yet) knit, so I decided to use it for a swim cover with teeny tiny crochet stitches. Ok, so maybe they aren’t that teeny tiny, but for me they were. It was exceptionally relaxing to be honest. I would like to try it in colors that I’m more accustomed to wearing, but these colors look festive for the beach anyway!

Gone Sailing Crochet Boat

My little boy asked for a toy boat. How precious! He waited patiently for it too. I wanted to simply find a pattern and whip something up for him, but the one I liked best needed translating. You can see the yarnsmile site boat here

Some of this pattern is translated from the yarnsmile site (thank you for this beautiful model!) and other parts I’ve changed. I would love to give full credit to my inspiration! 

I would recommend this toy for ages 5+ as it has some pieces that require careful handling. If you can think of a way to make it better for a young child – please let me know! My son is nearly four here and he plays well with it as long as his 18 month brother isn’t interfering.

I’m happy to present this pattern for free especially since I was able to translate much of it without creating a model from scratch. I used a Caron Cake that I had purchased as part of a blanket planned for my son. Now he will have a matching boat to fit perfectly into his shark themed room.

I hope you enjoy the pattern!

Star Hearts

I enjoy Valentine’s Day with our family because it falls between two birthdays and we’ve come to a general agreement that no big deal will be made from it. Still, we participate in the school exchanges and sugar coma’s. My husband finds a nice card that has become something to look forward to.

I’m playing around with making little crochet hearts. I wanted them for Valentine’s Day card embellishments, so they each only take a few minutes to crochet.

Trolls Crochet Hats

 

I got this feeling down in my bones when I heard that Trolls Holiday was coming. Now it’s out and we’ve seen it 500 times. My kiddos LOVE the original Trolls movie and who can blame them? Fun music, vibrant colors, and a weird Troll Llama that um, produces cupcakes. Should I even mention Justin Timberlake? Moving on.

I originally made hats for Satin and Chenille, but my son wanted Branch too. I chose the happy Branch colors even though I’m partial to the sarcastic survivalist myself. He’s like to Troll version of Eeyore with a modern sarcastic twist. Definitely speaks to me.

Here’s your free pattern:
