With winter wrapping up, I am looking forward to sharing some fun warm-weather crochet patterns. I have been brainstorming ideas, and I think this is the first summer that I am excited about (as far as crochet pattern designing goes, of course)! I have a growing list of fun things so I am excited, but I am trying to hold my horses. Since it’s still below freezing here in Northern Utah, I really wanted to sneak in a few more cool weather patterns before the season change. This chunky ribbed infinity scarf is my absolute favorite scarf this year. It works up insanely quickly, and it’s so cozy and warm. I don’t leave the house without it.
My dad is notoriously difficult to shop for. He is the man who has everything– at least everything that he wants. He is a hobby farmer and enjoys caring for animals, working land, and building things. He doesn’t care for fancy electronics or gold watches, but give the man an antique wood burning stove or a 500 lb rusty anvil and you have yourself the perfect gift! I haven’t been able to find or facilitate shipping those items, but I figured I could give him the gift of warmth during the cold, early morning milkings. This Farmer’s Chunky Hooded Cowl was made specifically with my dad in mind. So cozy, and perfect for layering to keep the head (and thus the rest of the body) warm while doing morning and evening chores.
I usually love the beginning of the week, but I have been dragging my feet lately. The last few days have been a bit of challenge. I am feeling overwhelmed, and I know it’s due to my own lack of organization. I also feel like I am losing on the parenting front. My 4-year-old son is so sweet, so silly and funny, but he has really been challenging my patience this week. Maybe it’s hard because I see such a stark difference between him and my 13-month-old. She is happy ALL DAY LONG. She plays and giggles and never talks back, which is how my son used to be. But then he and I snuggle under the covers after reading a book, and I am reminding of how much I love being a mother. I should probably just stay in bed all day tomorrow and hold on to it.
Crochet has been an extra important outlet, and these chunky, quick projects have been so cathartic. This Ric Rac Striped Scarf was made as a gift, but I am tempted to make one for myself, it’s so cozy and fun.
This crochet baby hooded cowl is perfect for keeping those little heads warm! The construction allows this baby crochet hood to stay on baby’s head easier and longer, and it perfect for winter walks or rushing from the warm house to the warm car!

Today I am revamping an old pattern–my first pattern actually. I didn’t have any idea what I was doing then(I am still learning, actually), but I was so proud of my first design. It was after this pattern that I decided I loved designing, and that I wanted to take my blog in a different direction.
Crochet. More crochet.
Since this pattern needed a bit of work and new photos, I decided to give it new life. I still love wearing my Striped Hipster Slouchy Beanie. It works up quickly, has a classic shape and is so comfy.

I have been loving hexagons lately. A few bloggers and I did a fun crochet-along with them at the beginning of the year, and I have been hooked since. I have a few project ideas in the works, but first I needed to write a simple hexagon pattern to use for them. This solid hexagon crochet pattern is easy to work up, and has a great shape. Hopefully it will be useful to you with your own hexagon projects!

This summer has been so lovely! Sis (now 8 months old!) absolutely loves being outside. She loves the leaves, and loves sitting on the grass. She will sit content in the warm breeze for a very long time, looking at the sky and watching all the things happening around her. And The Boy practically lives in his sandbox. I have had to up my vacuuming frequency to compensate for the sand I am finding everywhere. But I am so glad to have dirty, outside kids. Since summertime isn’t the time for thick, cozy baby shoes, I decided I would make some new baby barefoot sandals. These summer flower baby barefoot sandals literally take about 15 minutes to make, and are SO cute and comfy for baby. They are made with elastic yarn thread, so they are squishy, stretchy and wonderful. I made a headband with it last year, and I love the stretchy results.
This chunky fringe infinity scarf is a lovely evening project and uses soft, chunky yarn. It’s perfect for beginners and for those who want instant gratification, it works up fast.

These darling crochet baby flip flops are the perfect summer shoes/booties for baby! They are soft and comfy, but add a bit of classic style to any outfit.

You guys know that I love making baby stuff right? I love baby shoes, but anything baby is fun to make, especially when you have a specific bundle of joy in mind. When my crocheter friend Lauren for Crochet Ole’ posted her adorable, easy (and FREE) pattern for crochet baby teethers I knew I had to try this pattern! They turned out so cute, and it’s a lovely way to easy baby’s teething pain.
This pattern is super easy and quick to work, and I love that you can wet them down and freeze them for extra relief for Baby. When we have our next baby, he/she is going to have a collection of these!
For my teether rings I used Knit Picks Shine, which is a cotton/beechwood blend. It’s SO soft, and because it’s cotton, it won’t fuzzy or pill like other fibers.
I have already made these rings for beautiful little niece, as well as for my second niece, who is coming this November (squeal!).

With summer winding down here, I hesitated to post this pattern. I mean, Hobby Lobby already has Thanksgiving decorations up! Here in Vegas, however, we have a good 2 months of warm weather left, so I decided to post it. Plus, as summer fades away here, that means my friends in the southern hemisphere are gearing up for spring! Wherever you are, I hope you enjoy the crochet pattern for these Bitty Bow Baby Sandals.

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing another crochet pattern, this Faux Ribbon Baby Hat. It’s so easy, definitely a beginner project (my very first crochet project was a hat!). I love making this little crochet hat for baby showers and other baby gifts, because it works up quick, it’s so cute, and it complete a set if you decide to make these mary jane booties as well.
This classic baby booties crochet pattern will become your favorite go-to crochet Mary Janes for baby! Worked in the round, this pattern works up fast and the pop of color makes them a fun project to make. They are perfect for your next baby shower!
