Free Pattern: Vertical Stripes Beanie - Premie

Newborn size here.

This hat is a worsted-weight copy of this hat.  The spaces are uneven on this size, but I think it's pretty cute that way!

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!
