Fisher-Baby Crochet Photo Set

My friend Johanna had her baby 5 weeks early (isn’t he precious?) and needed her planned photo prop whipped up sooner than expected. One look at this little guy and you will want to take a break to watch dragonflies brush the water with the breeze tickling your hair on a perfect day. Ready to make one for the newborn coming in your world? Check out my pattern on Ravelry or Etsy!

Birdy Reversible Style Boot Cuffs

I bought my daughter a pair of super high boots for her Halloween costume and she decided she likes to wear them all of the time. Thanks to the current popularity of boot cuffs, she tried on the various styles I had crocheted. They were all too frilly for boots that already make a statement. I made up this reversible boot cuff so that she would have an additional, but classic choice. I love the bird stitch so much that maybe I’ll use it in a matching scarf and hat! 

Skill Level: Easy

Materials: Measuring tape, yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker

Yarn: 2 skeins of Peaches & Crème, White
Substitutions: any worsted weight or 4 ply yarn

Gauge: doesn’t matter for this pattern. See measurement instructions.

Hook Size: H

Size: Standard Adult 12” before stretch

Measure just above boot for circumference. Subtract .5” for width of cuff.

ch – chain stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet
bpdc – back post double crochet

Birdy Style Side

Rnd 8: ch 2, *hdc in same st, sl st in next st* around, insert stitch marker between last and first stitch of next round, do not join (skip ch 2 from previous round so count remains even)
