Crochet bag patterns are slowly becoming a favorite make! They work up super quick and are functional! When I was invited to participate in my friend’s Fall-themed blog hop, I couldn’t say no! I had so many Fall-perfect skeins of yarn that I had to use up. This pattern instantly came to mind and literally flew off my hook! Before I finished making it, I already knew how I wanted to style it! I initially designed this bag for the Eclairemakery Blog last year.

Crochet Hat Pattern – Inspired by Hat Not Hate

Looking for a free crochet hat pattern? Here's a unique design I've created in honor of the Hat Not Hate campaign by Lion Brand in child to adult sizes.

Looking for a free crochet hat pattern? Here's a unique design I've created in honor of the Hat Not Hate campaign by Lion Brand in child to adult sizes.

Are you looking for a fun free crochet hat pattern? I created this super cool design for hat not hate! There are still a couple of weeks left to send in your blue hats to support the anti-bullying campaign by Lion Brand! You can head to the Ravelry download link by clicking the button above!

I experienced bullying in various forms while I was growing up. Sometimes it was hurtful words and other times I remember being hurt physically. I used to be shamed for the way I looked and for being the only South Asian kid in the class. That’s why this initiative means a lot to me. This initiative is relevant to the backlash POC makers are currently experiencing for speaking out against injustice.

This design comes from a place of unity. It’s important to “put yourself in another person’s shoes” so you can see the world from their perspective. Similarly, we have to “try each other’s hats on” to truly understand one another. This is the only way we can show each other compassion and move forward.

Free Crochet Hat Pattern –

Disclaimer: This pattern has not been tested so please let me know if you find any errors! I’ll fix them right away!

The way the pattern is written, the colorwork will be on the front of the hat and there is no shaping involved. It is a tubular/cat-ear type hat as modeled by me! Bub’s hat is the first prototype. That’s why the heart is made with both contrasting colors which were difficult to crochet. As a result, I decided to use one color to make the heart!

Notes:

This pattern uses a few Tunisian crochet techniques. Use the following video tutorials as needed:

  • Pattern rows are Forward pass instructions.
  • The following instruction are implied:
    • The loop already on the hook at the beginning of the row counts as the first st.
    • Always TSS in the last st of the row, being sure to work under both loops of the st.
  • Return Pass: Follow the foundation row and each row with the Return Pass in the same color.
    • Return Pass Instructions: Ch 1, *yarn over, pull through two loops; repeat from * until 1 loop remains on the hook

Materials:

Yarn:

I used Lion Brand Yarn for this project. You could use any worsted weight size 4 yarn.

Pound of Love in Denim – approximately 200 yards

You can even go to a local craft store to purchase these materials. Joann, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby may have everything you’re looking for. This craft is inspired by Purple Ramadan which is why I used the purple and gold. You can let your little one choose the colors they would like to use. The only suggestion I have is that the yarn for making the star should be a size 5 bulky yarn. This is the type of yarn recommended for crochet beginners.

Crochet Dress for Babies- Tunisian Pixie Dress

A crochet baby dress, designed by me?! Somebody pinch me!

The Tunisian Pixie Dress is a beginner friendly Tunisian crochet dress pattern for babies! It can be made in sizes 0-3 months all the way up to 18-24 months! You can now find it on Etsy and Ravelry.

It’s here! A crochet baby dress that I designed all on my own! When I started working on this design, I didn’t know if it would end up fitting an actual baby. The first version I made was something that would probably only fit a doll. I persisted though because I had promised myself at the beginning of the year to create more girl designs.

The Tunisian Pixie Dress is a beginner friendly Tunisian crochet dress pattern for babies! It can be made in sizes 0-3 months all the way up to 18-24 months! You can now find it on Etsy and Ravelry.

I looked at it and tried to justify the size and told myself that I could make it work! Then, after a whole lot of convincing myself, I realized that if I am going to get serious about designing I need to start looking at tech editing as an investment rather than an expense! I asked around and everyone recommended Emily from Fiat Fiber Arts. I reached out to her and started discussing the design. She helped me figure out the math and become more confident in my designing process. She is an amazing tech editor and mentor! I absolutely loved working with her!

Even after figuring out the math, I was praying really hard that the dress would actually fit the respective sizes in the pattern. This is where my testers came and blew me away. They sent me pictures of the dress on AN ACTUAL BABY! This is when things got real!

So today, I present to you, my Tunisian Pixie Dress! It can be made in sizes 0-3 months all the way up to 18-24 months (16” to 20” chest circumference). This pattern is for a Tunisian crochet baby dress that is worked flat and seamed. Video and photo tutorials are included as well as a schematic and a full sizing chart along with written instructions. This is a super cute pattern for a baby shower gift or for a special occasion such as birthday party, wedding, or a newborn photoshoot! You can now find it on Etsy and Ravelry.
