Flip Flop Drink Sleeve – Graph & Pattern

This post may contain affiliate links. Any purchases made through these links will not cost you any extra but they do provide a small percentage to me to help keep my blog going.

Did you know that today is National Flip Flop Day? I love flip flops in the summer and this graph is great to use for many things but I personally love it to make a Flip Flop Drink Sleeve. This also lets me enjoy my flip flops year round and not just in the summer. There are two sizes for this pattern, a can size and a cup size, and both in single crochet and Tunisian. This pattern originally appeared on the Cre8tion Crochet blog as one of my contributions there. You can find more of my patterns over there and some other great contributor patterns as well.

Toddler & Child Basic Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

This post may contain affiliate links.

I remember getting so frustrated because my kids have big heads and I would find patterns that didn’t give a circumference and were labeled “toddler” or “child” and wouldn’t fit my kids because their noggins were too big for the standard. I had the same trouble when they were babies as well. My babies couldn’t ever wear the newborn sizes for hats (you can find the preemie and newborn sizes of this pattern HERE and the infant sizes HERE). My Toddler & Child Basic Beanie pattern works for those kids who don’t always fit the standard because I have listed the head measurements that I based these sizes on! A great resource for sizing hats can be found HERE at Tot Toppers, this is my go-to resource if a customer is unable to measure a child’s head for me.

New free crochet pattern just for y’all! This is the infant basic beanie (still to come are the toddler through child and adult sizes) in 0-3m, 3-6 m, and 6-12m. For preemie and newborn sizes, go HERE. I love having a good basic beanie pattern because if you have a base, you can go anywhere from there! I would get so frustrated because my kids have heads in the 90th plus percentile and nothing ever seemed to fit them.

Nautilus Baby Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

This post may contain affiliate links. I earn a small percentage from any purchases made through my affiliate links. This allows me to keep bringing you free patterns and other quality content!

One of my first pattern lines was the Nautilus line. My second contribution to Cre8tion Crochet was the Nautilus Baby Beanie. It is hard to believe that this pattern has been out for almost 2 years! The inspiration for these patterns was a knit hat that I saw on Pinterest that I fell in love with. One of my favorite things is to take inspiration from knit designs and try to recreate something similar in crochet.

Farmyard Friends – Crochet Graphs

I have some new crochet graphs available to purchase in my store. Please welcome the Farmyard Friends! I have not put them on Ravelry yet because they are standalone graphs that can be plugged into any of my patterns that call for a 16×16 graph and can also be used in the wrister patterns from Sick ‘Lil Monkeys which can be found here and here.

These particular graphs work really great for sippy cup covers. As with all my individual graph patterns, the graph comes rotated 3 ways to allow you to choose how to work it.

Triangle Stitch Belt & A Review

I have a new contributor pattern on Cre8tion Crochet! It goes along with my Triangle Stitch bags in that it is the same stitch used but this time I used a bulky yarn.

Here is what my testers had to say:

“This is a fantastic pattern that works up quickly with clear, easy to follow directions. Not only are color possibilities endless, one completed belt gives the wearer multiple choices in hardware placement for totally different ‘looks’. This is an accessory that will spice up any outfit!”

– Betty Lewis

“Such a fun pattern!! Triangles are so fun to create, simple and quick, yet pretty! I can use this pattern to create a belt to go with everything I wear! It’s versatile and can be worn in the front, on the side, in the back, up high, down low, anywhere you can think!!”

– Jennifer Hughes, Craft N Crazee

I love this pattern! It’s fun and works up quick! I love the style and there are endless color combinations!”

– Michele Orr, Michele’s Divine Crochet

You can find the pattern for my Triangle Stitch Belt HERE on Cre8tion Crochet.
