Grow Sew Happy

Lately the only project I’ve been working on are cabbage patch doll hats, LOTS of them, this photo only shows some of the hats I’ve made over the last few weeks. I’m not sure why the hats suddenly became so popular, but it was great timing for me since I needed new shoes and didn’t have the money to buy them!

In crocheting that many hats I finished tweaking my pattern , and have one for each age now. The differences are in bold:

Cabbage Patch Doll Hat
Size 3-6 Month
Hook: Size H crochet hook
Yarn: Vanna’s Choice Soft
Round 1: ch 3, join to form loop, ch 3, 8 dc
Place a “marker yarn” in a different color to keep track of rounds.
Round 2: 2 dc each dc around. (10 sets of 2)
Round 3: *2 dc in next dc, dc in next 2 dc*, repeat from…

SnutteIsbjörn / Polarbear Ragdoll

A very cute and free crochet pattern for babies and toddlers.
Who doesn’t love rag dolls?

I’ve included my version of this doll along with a crochet backpack for a toddler.


ENGLISH at end of the post.

Enda sedan jag i somras designade grodsnuttisen till Favoritgarners Scheepjesutmaning, så har jag haft en idé om fler snuttedjur. Nu när vi så smått börjar närma oss Alla hjärtans dag så tyckte jag det skulle vara fint om djuret fick ett hjärta på magen ❤

Jag har använt mig av Scheepjes Stone Washed XL som finns i 23 härliga färger, det är ett blandgarn med 70 % bomull och 30 % akryl. Här hittar du Scheepjes Stone Washed XL hos Favoritgarner. Ska man göra snuttisen till en bebis som kanske gärna har den i munnen så rekommenderar jag att ni istället gör den i Catona som är ett merciserat 100 % bomullsgarn. Snuttisen blir mindre då, men lika fin ändå. Jag har inte testat att använda mig av dubbelt Catona, men det är ju ett alternativ om man vill få den större.

Beaded Bracelet Pattern

I usually share crochet patterns, especially jewelry. However I also knit and this cute beaded KNIT bracelet looks easy enough with minimal supplies!

how i knit to stay sane


Supplies needed:

  • 2 double-pointed needles (referred to as dpns). Gauge isn’t important, but you’ll probably want a size 3, giver or take.
  • Metallic Elastic cord. Find this in the jewelry aisle at Michael’s or other craft stores.
  • #6 beads. Also available widely at craft stores.
  • Optional: A needle and embroidery thread, and a familiarity with my beading tutorial (or any other method of adding beads to a “live” stitch on the needles, as opposed to pre-stringing beads.)

Cast on 5 stitches. The elastic can be a little tricky to knit with. Aim to keep it taut without stretching it. Knit one row. *WITHOUT TURNING, slide the stitches to the other tip of your dpn. Pull the elastic a little more, so that it stretches a little bit, and knit the first stitch. Continue knitting the rest of the stitches without stretching the elastic.* Repeat from * to *…
