Rainbow Toddler Mittens & Scarf Set

A couple of years ago, my sister-in-law asked me to crochet my nephew (her son) a rainbow striped scarf. He was 3 years old at the time and she said that by the next winter he would start refusing rainbow colours, so she wanted him to have one while he was still young enough. They loved the scarf so I made him a couple of pairs of mittens.


The pattern for both the mittens and scarf is available in my etsy shop, and on Ravelry. To make them you'll need double knitting yarn in 7 colours and a 5.5mm hook. The mittens can be plain, striped or blocks of colour and will fit a 2-4 year old.

New & Improved!

Sweet Yolk Cardigan Pattern now includes toddler sizes. 

This sweet scandi style cardigan has been my most popular pattern, and I've had many requests for toddler sizes. I've now included 1-2 years and 2-3 years. One day I hope to go all the way up to adult sizes but that will take a very long time!

It's available in my shop and at Ravelry, it works up in just a few evenings and makes a great Christmas present for babies and toddlers.

Advent Calendar Crochet Pattern

There are lots of knitting patterns around for advent calendars, but hardly any crochet ones, and those that I found look like they were from the seventies! Nothing wrong with retro patterns, but I decided to try making my own. Here's what I came up with:

There are pockets for each day, for sweets or small toys. I'm going to make it again using cotton next time, but for now, I'm pretty happy with it :)
The pattern is available at etsy and ravelry
