New pattern up in store! Crochet Baby Shorts Pattern with Video Tutorial- Diamond Collection

New Pattern!

The Crochet Baby Shorts Pattern from the Diamond Collection!

First of the four patterns to be released! Here's the link for it
Why buy the pattern when I post so many free ones here. Well there is a full video tutorial included because no one has time to get confused. Also I include sizing for all the sizes from 0-24 months in written form with pictures! So head over to my store and check it out


*This is a Pattern for the shorts, not a finished product. Upon purchase the pattern will be available for instant download*
This is a pattern and video tutorial for the CUTEST COMFIEST Baby Shorts from the Diamond Collection. This pattern is perfectly wonderful on it's own or to be purchased in addition to the other 3 patterns in this collection. 
What makes this special??
* It's so comfy and stretchy for babies to waddle around in
* Elastic is used around the waist to keep the shorts from falling off while staying comfortable
* Great learning experience for learning how to make a shorts base with elastic
* Learn how to cable stitch crochet the diamond part of the shorts! Adding texture to crochet is just so much fun!
* Learn how to front post double crochet stitch if you don't already know or get some practice on it! (Not a common stitch)
*There's a VIDEO TUTORIAL... Need I say more?? 
*****I GUARANTEE CLARITY in my patterns!****
Nobody wants to spend money on unclear patterns. If any part of my patterns are confusing I will rewrite it...add to the video... and send the new version to everyone asap!
Included in this pattern: 
*Written pattern in standard crochet language for each size
*Pictures of steps
*Open work symbol pattern for the diamond part
***VIDEO TUTORIAL*** 1 hour and 30 minutes
The private video link includes:
*How to do the shorts step by step
*How to insert the elastic
My patterns are probably the most comprehensive pattern you will find and I am determined to help you learn so if anything is unclear just message me and we will figure it out!
The following sizes are included:

3-6 Months - 17"

12-18 Months - 20"
18-24 Months - 21"
**Skill Level: Intermediate/Advanced (but don't forget I'm here to help so go for the challenge!) 
If you are good at counting stitches and can see which stitches are on top of each other you should have no problem because that's the trickiest part involved in the diamond part.
Materials Needed:
4 Ply cotton yarn (3 ply if your baby overheats easily)
5.00 mm hook
3/4" elastic (20" should cover any size)
Needle with a Large Eye

Now I am going to start a playlist of how to crochet from start to finish adding a new video every week! It will be jam packed with all you need to know to become a confident expert crocheter. It won't be your basic how to videos...for example for the "How to Chain Video", I'll show you how to make the best chains, consistent chains, include fun projects you can do with just chains, and show different methods of crocheting into different parts of chains to give different looks! So check in again in May for new weekly videos!
Why am I doing this?? I love crochet so much! It is my relaxation, my creative outlet, and I want to spread that hapiness around!

My work - Baby Boy Outfit

Here is another one of my designs for baby boy outfit sweater and diaper combo... I need to add some shoes and a hat still probably a newsboy hat... anyways I have pictures with buttons and without. The person I sold this to wanted it without buttons so here it is :) I like the sweater a lot... and the diaper cover is adjustable with a tie to keep it snug! I will add color next time I make this maybe a couple stripes...anyways I like how it came out.

My Work - Yellow Summer Baby Dress and Outfit Design

Here is my second baby clothes collection! This particular one is for 3-6 months but I can adjust the size for any baby age... This is my daisy dress design for the summer ^^ getting ready to start my etsy shop after I finish my pink baby outfit... Anyways so the set consists of the dress... Sun hat... headband... and slippers..
 Here is the closeup of the dress with the daisy buttons and little daisy bouquet It's really fluffy and cuddly... who says crochet dresses have to be frilly! ^^
 Here is a little sunhat I made with daisy bouquet... it is super stretchy so as the baby grows it will stretch with their head!
 Super adjustable daisy head band... the buttons fit between every stitch so yes supperadjustable
 Cute Slippersss... very soft and stretchy Oh so cute...
Advice for everyone... when making a design write everrrything down... including the hook size and the little details because you will forget eventually! :P I keep a word document and I just add everything to it along with a little notebook for sketches...

My Work - Winter Blanket Completed!

Finally Finished my Winter Blanket Project! It was meant for a double bed but somehow it also fits on a queen bed with the edition of the border ^^ It would look good on either size. I have the start of my pillow project in the background to make a decorative back pillow with a brown and blue border... maybe some mini snowflake border.
 Here is the final center piece for the cover after a lot of animals made and trial and error... have some snowflakes and dear and two birds...I actually have white and blue parakeets so these were made to look like them ^^ Also I made a pile of snow at the base under the dear which is fluffy... So there is my 3d applique section of the blanket
 This shows the snowflake border... :)
 There is a close up of the start of the pillow... some snowflaky wintery kind of design... when I finish the pillows I'll post them :)
Final thoughts... this was a great project... I learned a lot from all sorts of stitching and reading symbol patterns because I did so many different kinds of squares and even designed some of my own... it was really fun and worth it... took a long time and a lot of yarn... but it will be forever ^^
