Baby Pinafore and Booties

September 14, 2014 1 comment

I just finished up crocheting this cute baby pinafore pattern. I used some vintage Good Shepherd Pompadour yarn which is 85% virgin wool and 15% rayon. This yarn is a lightweight sport yarn. The original crochet pattern I used is called Baby Pinafore with Ruffles. I did a few modifications to the pattern which I will detail below.

I used a G (4 mm) crochet hook and lightweight sport yarn to crochet this baby set. Because this yarn is very lightweight, I feel the pinafore is for a newborn size. I would use a heavier yarn and an H (5 mm) hook for a larger baby as my pinafore is not very big.

I joined after row 6 and used a small velcro strip for the back closure.

Von-Cott Baby Blue Set

July 11, 2014 No comments yet

I crocheted this baby gift set using some of my vintage Von-Cott sport yarn that I had in my stash. I just love the shade of this sport weight cotton yarn.

The baby booties were crocheted using my cuffed baby sock booties pattern and the hat is my baby ribbed hat pattern. I did work a few extra increases until I worked the hat even on 56 stitches so my hat is about 14 inches wide.

To finish off the set I crocheted one of my diagonal baby bibs using this free crochet bib pattern. I did 20 rows before adding the trim edging row for the bib due to the sport weight yarn.

Cuffed Baby Sock Booties

February 7, 2013 14 comments

Here are my crocheted baby booties that feature a cuffed top. I did a variation of the original slipper sock pattern by Sharon Klinsky that can be found on several different crochet sites.

There is a wonderful picture tutorial of the original pattern over at Coffee n’Crafts blog site that I found very useful to understand the pattern. Just use a single strand of worst weight yarn for baby booties that will fit a baby up to 6 months old. For a preemie sized newborn, I used a smaller crochet hook and some sport-fingering yarn. If you are wondering, the creme-colored preemie socks shown below have a different stitch look because I turned the toe portion inside out before adding the ribbed heel. By reversing the toe portion, it results in a horizontal stitch look rather than a circular pattern.

Felted Baby Slippers

August 6, 2010 9 comments

I crocheted these felted baby slippers using just a small amount of chunky wool yarn that I had left over from a thrift store purchase. I was inspired by the cute felted woman’s slippers that Guro created. Guro has a new blog site where you can find all kinds of beautiful new craft projects that she has created. I just love all her beautiful crochet projects. Click on over and check out her gorgeous designs.

I wanted to make baby slippers to fit my Granddaughter who is 10 months old. So through trial and error, I finally came up with a pattern that after felting fit her feet.

My finished slippers before felting were 3″ wide by 5″ inches long with a toe depth of 2″. After felting the slippers are 2.5″ wide by 4.25″ long. Guro has graciously allowed me to post my baby version of her slipper pattern below. Enjoy and happy crafting to all!

Baby Kimono and Booties

I can show and tell my pink baby kimono and Mary Jane booties now that I’ve given this set to my daughter-in-law. I’ve been having so much fun crocheting all these girlie things for my future granddaughter who is due to be born in less than a month.

This crocheted kimono sweater works up in one piece and is a highly customizable kimono wrap. I used pink Red Heart baby econo yarn and added white trim to my sweater. Here is the crochet pattern link.

I crocheted these adorable little Mary Janes to complete my gift for the new baby. I used Abigail Goss’s free pattern found here for the Mary Janes. I added the little white flowers to tie in with the pink kimono’s white trim. I’m looking so forward to seeing the baby in this cute little crochet set later this fall.

As a sneak peak to my next project, I’m working on a new recycled t-shirt yarn (t-yarn) baby bib. The t-yarn strips were cut really thin from an old white t-shirt and then crocheted to make a baby bib. I’m almost done with the bib and writing up the crochet pattern now. I will post the t-yarn bib and free crochet pattern next week. Until my next post, enjoy and happy crafting to all!
