Hats are one of my favorite projects to crochet. This hat is easy and quick to make. It is worked from the top down in spiral rounds so there is no need for chaining or joining rounds with slip stitches. The hat starts with four rounds of increases and then is worked straight down. The main stitch used is double crochet stitch and the hat is edged with reverse single crochet. I am using bulky weight yarn so the hat is very quick to make.
The video tutorial shows how to crochet this easy hat step by step.
This is a free crochet pattern for a cute crochet baby dress. I originally designed this dress for Crochet One Skein Wonders Baby Book, but it was sized for newborn and 3 month old only. My almost one year old baby girl really “needed” a crochet dress (yes, I have a problem, I can’t stop crocheting for her ;)), so I sized it up to fit 9-12 month old as well.
The pattern in the book is called Pretty in Pink, p.89.
The dress is worked from the top down. The buttoned front piece makes dressing easier, and the buttons add charm.
