Since I’ve had a few requests for it, I decided to write up the pattern to the Mitten for your Smitten next. It’s a simple mitten design but by using the crocheted knit stitch (a.k.a. waistcoat stitch), you get a tighter construction, which then makes it warmer.

The Easy Baby Blanket is perfect not only because it’s simple but also because the stitches give a lovely finished look; they’re functional too. With the holes it creates within the pattern, they’re perfect for little fingers to “tickle” the material. It’s a great comfort piece for any little one. In my video tutorial attached below, I create a small swatch or lovie-sized blanket…more
