I love to crochet! It is one of my favorite creative mediums. Every time a new baby in announced I get to work. Well recently after a dry spell in the baby department both my sister and sister in law have decided to give me nephews, my friends are getting pregnant like it is the new handbag for spring, and I myself have been fantasizing of all things newborn and snugly.
At times like this all I can do is double crochet my little fingers to the bone. Most recently I have found a love for caps. Sweet little baby beanies that work up so quickly and are super cute. With the load of infants coming my way these days a blanket for every one would over take my life so these are a great answer to prayer.
I thought I would share with you my favorite new addition. A pattern that is not my own, but I have been able to add to and embellish on so many times that I have found myself working all my creations from this one pattern.
I came across it after it was posted by a fellow blogger, and craft enthusiast Alli from www.allicrafts.blogspot.com
This super cute ear flap cap I just made for my infant nephew due in May is the one I have been using and I simply cannot fine one I like more to work from. I have taken this one and extended the initial row to make an adult hat omitted the ear flaps for a more traditional cap, added flowers you name it!Thanks Alli! I love love love this pattern!0
