We will now share our best craft projects, DIY inspirations, Introduce you to our beautiful Artists and much more on our new blog 🙂
Let’s start with our most favorite project; Crochet Dress for Newborn baby. We created this dress when we welcomed our youngest new member to our family!
I love this baby cardigan pattern from Yarny Days Blog as I wanted to learn the knack of making a continuous one-piece sweater. The pattern was easy to follow, but I had to amend it as I was using very lightweight yarn and also wanted a ribbed pattern to match with the turban.
- Lightweight acrylic multicolored yarn.
- 3.5mm Crochet Hook
Changes made to the original Pattern:
Started with 48 chains instead of 38.
The circumference of the cardigan measured 28 inches before beginning the pattern
I alternated between the front loop and back loop for each row to get the ribbed pattern.
Used same color yarn for the edging
space out the three buttons to close the cardigan completely

Baby Booties: I wanted to try this Baby Booties pattern for so long. Finally got a perfect reason to make these.
Again I made some changes to the pattern. I used 3.5mm hook for the sole and then 4mm hook for the side and top of the booties.
They seemed to be too small for a newborn when I made using the only 3.5mm hook as suggested in the pattern.
This was a very quick project took me only 10 hours to complete the set. I hope it fits the newborn perfectly.
