Rainbow Toddler Beanie

For this very simple pattern you will need any worsted weight yarn in a main color, plus a few scraps of any other colors of your choosing! A size 5mm crochet hook is needed as well as an understanding of the Front Post Double Crochet and the Back Post Double Crochet. Check out my Puff Stitch Toddler Beanie pattern for a quick explanation on these two stitches. They can be a bit fiddly when you first learn but once you get the hang of it you will be on the pig's back!!

This beanie is slightly slouchy but if you want it more fitted just do less rounds after you have completed the increase rows.

With your 5mm crochet hook make a magic ring, chain 2, then make 9 double crochet into the ring. Join with a slip stitch to the first double crochet to close. Chain 2
Round 2: Make 2 double crochets into EACH stitch around. Join with a slip stitch to the first double crochet. Chain 2.
Round 3: *Make 2 double crochets into the next stitch, then make 1 double crochet into the following stitch*. R…

Strawberry Backpack

This has got to be one of my favorite patterns to ever come up with. I know I probably say this about everything that I create but this little strawberry bag has definitely warmed my heart up.

Wouldn't this make a perfect gift for a little girl. She could pack her pajamas or her special little toy into this for when she is going on sleepovers. Of course adults can benefit from this too. It would make a perfect festival accessory in my opinion.
It looks like this could be a pretty intense pattern, right? You're wrong! It is so easy anyone can make this bag of cuteness. Seriously, even a beginner crocheter can master this.
So for this bag you will need worsted weight yarn in red, green and tiny amounts of white and a 5mm crochet hook. Of course you can use a chunky or bulky yarn for this bag, it just means your bag will turn out a bit bigger.

Using red yarn:

Bag is made in continuous rounds so do no slip stitch at end of each round to close and do not make a chain at the beginning…
