#3 Sweet Caroline
Emi designed these booties with beginners in mind.

Her patterns are designed to be as simple as possible, and this one is no exception!

These little booties have no complicated decreases, or increases in stitching. The two rows of increase at the toe end of the bootie, are so simple to do! After that, it just plain single crochet!!

The pattern is available at Hectanooga Patterns.

 Summer is around the corner!  These cute crocs are great for stylish little ones.   

This pattern takes the mystery out of making crocs!  If you have gotten frazzled over croc patterns before, (and I am sure some of you have), then this is the answer for you. Straight forward pattern and works up fast.
Make a pair in about 1/2 hour! Lots of photos.

These are stay on crocs, the straps are not able to be flipped to the front. But they are oh so cute!!!

To make these crocs you will need knitting worsted yarn, and different size crochet hook for the 3 sizes:
4.5mm (US 7) for newborn,
5mm (USH8) for 3 month size, and
5.5mm (US I-9) for 6 months size.  Get your pattern at Ashton11's pattern shop.
