Baby Isaac's Crocheted Gifts

I finished another baby gift set.  This one is for Baby Isaac.  I let his parents choose the colors and then I tried out another new pattern.

I am so glad that I made myself learn to read patterns about 6 months ago.  If you are new to crocheting, don't be scared of reading patterns.  Break it down step by step.  I have even rewritten them so that I could understand them in "my" language.

Here is the gift set that I made for Baby Isaac.  I made cute little booties, a hat with a big pom pom on top and a toddler size baby blanket.  I always make my baby blankets a bit larger.  I don't know a baby who gives up their favorite blanket at age 1. That usually doesn't happen till much later.  At least a larger blanket will allow the child to enjoy it a bit longer.
Here is a full shot of the baby blanket.  I really like the light blue with the brown.  I used I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby.  I truly love this yarn!  It is soft, full and nice to work with.  The regularly 40% off coupon is nice too. 

If I made this blanket again, I think I would make a slightly thicker edge around the entire blanket.
Here is a close up view of the hat and booties.
Now for the best news, I want to share the patterns with you!  They are not my own, but all easily available.  The blanket is called Simple Ripple Baby Afghan from Lion Brand.  You can find the pattern here.  The shoes are called Warm Winter Booties and the pattern can be purchased here.  The hat is called Mini Muffin Hat and you can find the pattern here.  I love the textures and mixing of yarns for this precious little hat.    There you go, three new patterns, two free, one to purchase. 

I hope Little Isaac will like his baby set.  I have at least 2 more baby blanket sets to make.  I just need to decide what pattern I would like to try out next.  If you would like to see some other crocheted blankets I have made, check out this post.

  3. This is such a sweet and special gift. I still have the baby blanket that was made for me when I was born. I love free patterns, I am going to go print it out right now. If you like crocheting baby stuff I just finished a little shell design hat that was super easy. The pattern was free too, from The Dainty Daisy.

  7. Very cute! Thanks for the links to the patterns! I just started reading patterns a few months ago too! I used to watch tutorials on youtube and write down in my own 'language' what they were doing! Finally just decided to actually learn to READ a pattern! LOL!
