Newsboy Hats

Crochet Newsboy Hats are definitely a hot trend for newborn photoshoots. I just love them for Fall weather. I have made them in all colors and my absolute favorite part is picking out buttons to go with each one.
Here are a couple of new ones I have made from a pattern from Speckled Frog Crochet on etsy. The green one below is currently listed for sale in my etsy shop. There are so many possibilities for this hat, colors, textures, buttons, flowers, ribbon. I can think of a million, but all in all this pattern is so cute that it really doesn't need a whole lot added to it to look great.

Crochet Sock Monkey

Sock Monkey by Art of Crochet

Crochet Sock Monkey Pattern from Crochet Geek

I just had to share a link to Teresa's (Art of Crochet) pattern for a crochet sock monkey. How cute! She gives video tutorials for each body part....amazing work!
I love making my monkey hats and they were definitely inspired by Mr. sock monkey. Maybe I need to work on a matching sock monkey toy for my monkey hats!

Single Crochet Baby Beanie - EASY

This is a RE-POST from last year, but I just love this little baby beanie crochet pattern and it's so easy to make. I don't use this pattern much anymore, but I used it a lot when I was first starting out. It's great for beginners! The video tutorial will help guide you.  Happy Crocheting!


REPOST: Single Crochet Baby Beanie - EASY

The baby pattern I probably use MOST is the single crochet baby beanie. Moms love this pattern, especially for baby gifts and newborns. The same pattern can be used for many different versions and styles (I will be adding more ideas at a later date). The following pictures show some of my different versions of the same simple pattern. This pattern is FREE and can be found online at:
FREE BABY BEANIE PATTERN where she also has an online tutorial showing how to make this beanie hat. Video tutorial

The baby shoes/loafers below are from a pattern by Hook Candy. I love her crochet baby bootie patterns. Here is her shop on etsy: Sylver

Here is one of my baby beanies in a Sugar'n Cream's natural cotton yarn.    

This one is made with Caron's Simply Soft in Orange and Blue.
I had a request for a War Eagle/Auburn baby beanie. 

This one is made from Lion Brand Cotton-Ease in Lake and Taupe and the one below it is made from Lime green and Cream.
