Free Pattern: Up and Down Stitch Hat - Newborn



This hat was inspired by my late grandmother.  She used this simple, textured stitch pattern to make so many beautiful blankets, one of which my daughter uses every night.  Her dedication to beauty and perfection in her craft inspired me to begin crocheting, and it inspires me still.

For my Valentine's theme, I got my idea from this gorgeous picture of an item no longer available on Etsy.  I made my hat in red, changing to white for the last round, and added a heart applique from Skip to My Lou - though I only did rounds 1 and 2, leaving off the last round.  Perfect for a Valentine's baby!

Free Crochet Pattern: Stroller Pouch



Since I had my babies, pretty much every year one of my New Year's Resolutions is to exercise more regularly and maybe shed a few of these leftover pounds.  Now that my olders are in school, I can take the babe out during the day for a walk or a run.  But my jogging stroller didn't come with a parent tray, and though the underneath storage is great, I really need some things close while I am running.  So this is what I came up with.  This button-on stroller pocket works great to store my phone, iPod, my keys or garage clicker, some chapstick, whatever I need to be close at hand.



It will probably wobble as you go, but probably won't tip over.  Just in case, though, don't store anything in there that could hurt your kid if it fell out!

If you are making this for your own stroller, measure the distance between the handles.  If it's shorter than mine, you will need to make your starting chain shorter.  Also, if you want to carry a larger phone or a water bottle, add rows to make the pocket deeper.

Join me, and let's keep our stuff close by while we chew up a few miles!
