About the Diagonal Delights Blanket

 
This pattern is designed to work from one corner, work diagonal rows up to the opposite corner. Because of this technique the blanket is a square shape. 
 
The blanket is made using a worsted weight yarn, if you decide to use multiple colors (especially if it is a stash buster) pay close attention to your gauge. A simple change in yarn could affect the tension on your hook and result in a wonky square shape.
 

Why I love making Corner to Corner (C2D) Blankets

I have always struggled crocheting blankets, mostly because I lose interest before I am done. Then it is a forced project, and no one wants one of those. 

However, when you begin a blanket at the corner, your rows start small. They slowly get longer with each row and right about the time you are beginning to lose interest… BAM! The rows start getting shorter again. 

The other amazing part about this design is that there is no border! That is right, when you are completed with the diagonal rows, your blanket is done. Ekkk, that is so exciting for me!

Fishing Set Crochet Pattern includes Hat, Britches, Suspenders, Fish & Net

Little boys are too cute in crochet photo props, and the fishing set has me wishing I had it for my boys! The fishing set is a whimsical touch with its hat, britches with suspenders, fish net and fish.

Fishing Set Photo Prop Crochet Pattern

Crocheting the fishing set is a fun experience because you get to pull in pops of color in the fish or in the flies that adorn the hat and suspenders.

The britches in the pattern are designed to go just below the knee. A length that reminds me of young boys running around through streams with their hems rolled up, while slashing along the way.

The hat has been a really popular design and I love it every time I get to make it. The pattern includes a step by step tutorial on how to make the flies and you can add as many as you like.

Where to get all the Fishing Set Patterns

The pattern has a few different ways you can order it. The full set includes the following crochet pieces: hat, britches with suspenders, fishing net & fish.

You may decide you only want the “toy” pieces of the set and want only the net and fish. For the fishing pole prop I just wrapped the yarn around the end of a stick multiple times to create this whimsical look.

Free Simple Crochet Basket Pattern

      1 Comment on Free Simple Crochet Basket Pattern
Today I spent cleaning out my craft room. While I was going through my huge yarn stash I found a beautiful skein of super bulky yarn. It was so soft and the colors reminded me of spring. I knew I had to make something quick and fun and wanted it to be something useful. So the Simple Crochet Basket popped into my mind!
The Simple Crochet Basket was perfect to have on a stand and keep my current WIPs (works in progress). It is small enough to keep those small remnants of yarn, my hooks and project all just fit perfectly.
Simple Crochet Basket
With my Simple Crochet Basket done, it dawned on me {face to palm… duh}, this will work for an EASTER BASKET too! I am still not sure, why that idea didn’t pop into my head first, but, somethings, this is just how it works out.
Simple Crochet Basket
I mean seriously, it is too cute! The basket is only about 8″ across the bottom. So, this is especially perfect for a small display or a small child. I have mine sitting out right now next to my entry way.
The pattern is so basic and works up quick. I couldn’t keep it to myself. I want you to go dig through your stash and then head over and grab your copy of the Simple Crochet Basket for
FREE! Get it on Raverly or Craftsy now.
If you love this idea and pattern, please make a point to visit Sweet Potato 3 on facebook. We have a ton of fun, share cute project ideas, you’ll be the first to know about pattern releases, sales and just enjoy lot’s of crochet fun!

Golf Set Pattern Release

Golf Set Crochet Pattern

This Golf Set crochet pattern comes with complete instructions for the Golfers Cap, Bow Tie with an adjustable neck band, Britches that fall just below the knee and suspenders.

The pattern includes the following sizes: NEWBORN, 3-6 MONTH & 6-12 MONTH. Sizing can be difficult at this age because sizes can vary so much by just a couple pounds. I used average sizes according the U.S growth charts, but if possible take measurements of the child that will be wearing the set.

The pattern for the entire golf set is available in all my pattern shops, just follow the links below:

Mermaid Set Crochet Pattern – Added Sizes!

      2 Comments on Mermaid Set Crochet Pattern – Added Sizes!
Mermaid Tail Sets are so popular in photographing little girls right now. I recently released a fun set for newborns but I received so many request for larger sizes that I had to add them.
The Mermaid Photo Prop Pattern now includes 3 sizes: newborn, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months.

More about the Mermaid Set

The Tail of the Mermaid prop is made in a raised but still slightly subtle wave pattern. The look replicates that of scales. The tail simply slides over the legs and is secured around the waist of the baby.
The bikini top is cute band that has a pinched pleat in the center of the front. This design is easy on a sleeping baby. If you have an older baby that is slightly more mobile, you may want to consider adding a small neck strap, but make sure you supervise the infant while it is wearing the set.
The headband features a design that can either be a starfish or a swaying flower of the sea.

Have fun with colors

Be creative with colors while you make your mermaid set. A simple change here can dramatically change the look of the mermaid set.

Cable Twists Earflap Hat – Crochet Pattern

Hats are one of the essentials for cooler days, since we get to wear them so often it is fun to have a selection of unique ones in your stash for different days. It is a must to have one with cables, therefore, I designed the Cable Twist Hat .

Cable Twist Hat

One of the reasons I love this design so much is that it appeals to everyone: men, women and children of all ages. It is a classic design that will never go out of style and works for practically any occassion.

The hat is designed using a light weight (#3) yarn. I decided to make my samples using Loops & Threads Sugarspun yarn in the color, Blue Jean. I love the softness of this yarn and lovely it works up.

Loops & Threads Sugarspun

More about the Cable Twist Pattern

The Cable Twist hat can be made with or without the earflaps. Each way has a completely different look to it resulting endless possibilities in making the hat for different folks.

The hat is pretty basic but the cable running along the base is what really makes it stand out! The pattern includes photos to explain the correct stitch placement as the cable is made.

Cable Twist Hat Crochet Pattern

The hat design includes sizes from newborn all the way up to adult sizes. I made a set for a friend of ours that is a new mom, here is her Mommy & Me set.
