Crochet Baby Dress Pattern with Two Unique Stitches, Sunshine Dress





This delightful baby dress pattern is designed using two unique crochet stitches. Who wouldn't love learning new stitches? The pattern is written to minimize weaving ends while changing colors. The bodice uses a combination of shell and puff stitches while the skirt is made up of a gorgeous eyelet crochet fabric. The bodice stitch would look more defined if you used a dark color with a light one. I have vowed not to buy more yarn until I finish half of my stash.  The yarn is taking over my apartment :). So I picked the two colors I already had. I would love to try this in another color combination later. What do you think of the colors used? 
  
*Pattern is written in standard US terms.
*Pattern uses a DK weight (size 3) yarn.
*Pattern uses G(4mm) hook for the bodice and G(4.5)mm for the skirt.
*Pattern includes sizes Newborn to 2 Years
*The bodice has a back closure and the straps are adjustable for a custom fit.

Free Potholder Crochet Pattern, Urban Kitchen Potholder, Crochet Pot Holder or Hot Pad,


Crochet Potholder free pattern,

Pin it for later: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/51087777005082732/

Use this crochet pattern to make a designer potholder for your contemporary kitchen. You can't imagine how easy the wave pattern is. The diagonal effect is achieved not through increases and decreases but by folding your potholder in a specific way. I had fun designing them and I will be gifting them to my friend who loves to cook and decorate her home. I hope you will enjoy making them too.

Matching kitchen towels with a sweet surprise is coming up next :). 

Materials
1. Worsted weight cotton yarn. Lily Sugar 'n' Cream in colors Soft Ecru, Tangerine, and Hot Blue were used for the samples. Each pot holder took 2 balls, one in each color.
2. Hook 4.5mm
3. Yarn needle to weave in the ends.

Finsihed Size
8 1/4 inch X 8 1/4 inch square

Crocodile Stitch Gladiator Sandals for Women, Crochet Pattern, Both Indoor and Outdoor Versions Included, Boho Dreamz Sandals, US Sizes 5-12


Crocodile Stitch Gladiator Sandals Crochet Pattern for Woman


Crocodile Stitch or Dragon Scales Slipper Crochet pattern

Now includes a bonus outdoor version with Flip flop Soles!




I am so stoked about this crochet pattern! Now, why did I not come up with this idea before? My Baby Gladiators were probably the first pattern of its kind and I got rave reviews for it. I got many requests for adult size Gladiator sandals, but a plain one did not catch my fancy. Adding the crocodile stitch to the toe top has made all the difference, don't you agree? From the many pictures I added, you might have already guessed that I really enjoyed photographing this sandal. It looks even more fab when you wear it on your feet. If you make one, I would love to see a picture.

A big thank you to Nikki Little for suggesting the beautiful name, Boho Dreamz Sandals. I loved it because it has the "Dreamz" from my blog name. 

* The pattern includes US sizes, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12. Includes an indoor version with crochet soles and a bonus outdoor version with Flip Flop soles.

*Hooks F(3.75mm) and H(5mm) are used for the pattern.

* The sole of the indoor version is worked using worsted weight yarn. It has two layers and a layer of quilter's batting is added between them to make it sturdy and cushy.

* The right and left soles are shaped differently just like regular sandals.

* The upper is worked using DK ( size 3 yarn). I picked Baby Bee Sweet Delight Yarn from Hobby Lobby, as this yarn was thinner than most DK and did not make the crocodile stitches bulky. The yarn comes in many colors making it a delight to work with. The colors used were Carrot, Infant Teal, and Naked. 

* The crochet pattern is designed in such a way that you get a sturdy sandal that you can comfortably walk in. 

* Additional supplies for outdoor version: 
 1.) A pair of beige Flip flops (Old Navy preferred)
 2.) 48LB hemp cord for border
 3.) A 2.5mm hook or any piercing tool
 4.) Shoe goo or any footwear adhesive
 5.) Sewing pins to position the ankle side on the sole
