Tranquil Waves Toddler Sun Hat (Cloche) 

Once in a great while, I see or create a stitch pattern and the hook-addict comes out to play.  Everything from there on that I can think of and dream up is in that particular stitch – take the entire free crochet pattern set in Mariposas stitch for example: Mariposas Beanie (Bottom-Up) featuring ribbed brim, Mariposas Boot Cuffs, Mariposas y Angeles Beanie (Top-Down) featuring basket weave brim, Mariposas Wrist Cuffs, Mariposas Bolero (yet to be revealed), Mariposas Throw (in final development stage) as an example.

The Tranquil Waves is no exception.  This time, after making the Tranquil Waves Underarm Purse, the series has barely lifted off.  This toddler cloche-like sun hat will be the first in a toddler set of legwarmers and more in DK (Light Worsted Weight #3)! My lounge friends with mostly dk weight yarn, you are in for a treat :)

New addition: Tranquil Waves Teen-Adult (s) Arm Warmer <3

Don’t hesitate to visit me on Facebook or send me an e-mail if you have any pattern specific or crochet related questions!  The Loungers are fabulously helpful even if I may not have all the answers ♥ With that said, don’t forget to check your gauge and adjust hook sizes until you find one to match the stated gauge especially on fitted items!

Materials

Sizing

Hook & FO Sizing
~8″ from Crown to RSC Brim 18.5″ diameter + stretch
Fits 12-24mo toddler

Gauge

2” (5.08cm) after first 2 rounds – adjust hook size to obtain gauge

Dc height is 0.5″ or 1.27cm

If your gauge is not matching the above within the first 2 to 3 rounds, it’s time to adjust – although mentioned before in the Pineapple Lace Sunhat that it is crucial in hat-making that your gauge matches in the increase rounds or your hat will end up being way too big or way too small, it is LESS critical on a hat made with sock yarn or highly stretchable material vs. 100% cotton.

If your stitching is resulting in a longer round height, you need to adjust your golden loop or drop down in hook size and use the hook that obtains gauge.

Golden Loop - after inserting your hook into an indicated stitch, the Golden Loop is the loop you yarn over and draw up.  The height of your row/round depends on how high you draw up the Golden Loop.  This matters greatly in gauge matching if you are needing to follow hook size and or have already dropped down in hook size and cannot obtain gauge.

~♥ Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses
Baby – Toddler Princess Tutu X♥X♥ ♥~

The Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses patterns are really taking a shape of their own!  The free crochet pattern series includes newborn-adult sized headband  and the Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses Infinity Scarf so far; they were so fun to make I had to have a set for myself! My Musical daughter will soon make her own set after seeing her mom and baby sister sporting the hearts.  Isn’t that exciting?Hugs & Kisses to you X♥X♥

Eternal Love Hugs & Kisses Newborn-Toddler Princess Tutu -- Free Crochet Pattern | The Crochet Lounge™

Add this Pattern to Your Ravelry Queue

Seeing the cutest headband on Tree^3, I couldn’t leave it as the only pattern in the series.  She is so stinkin’ cute I had to have a bottom to match.  Although I had veered away from making tutu items, this one sealed the deal.  If you have never worked with tulle or made a tutu, not to worry, your hook will help you through it all!

Materials

    • Small amount of Worsted Weight yarn – I have used Red Heart with Love in the photos shown.
    • 6″ wide tulle rolls (single or multiple colors) 30-60yds depending on length, size, and fluffiness desired
      <Note: In the photo, I used roughly 50 yards of 2 colors combined hooking in the Fdc where round 1 is FPhdc only leaving all connected to BPhdc empty>
    • H-8 (5mm), I-9 (5.5mm), J-10 (6mm) Hook (whatever it takes to obtain gauge)
    • Stitch Marker
    • Tapestry Needle
    • Scissors

Sizing:

Hook & FO Sizing – this goes with gauge — it is very important to check gauge on a fitted item!

~17″+/43cm circumference newborn size- fsc 60
~18″+/45cm  circumference 0-3mo infant size - fsc 64
~19″+/45.5cm  circumference 3-9mo infant size - fsc 68
~20″+/50cm circumference 12-18mo – fsc 72
~21″+/53cm circumference 24mo – fsc 76

<Note: Since post stitches make the pattern stretchy, and the puff hearts allow stretch as well, with each sizing, you can actually stretch it enough to fit 1.5-2″ up, which means you can get a lot of wear out of a single sizing. ex. My 20mo fits in ~18″+ stretched written w/o stretch for 0-3mo>

Take your rolls of tulle, unroll and measure the baby’s waist to ankle area or however long you desire the tutu to be, then double the length before you cut.  Measure out and cut the rest of the tulle you think you’ll need (I used about 50yards for my 20mo’s tutu).  Take 2 strips of the tulle and fold it in half, insert your hook from one side of an FDC to the other that has Round1 FPhdc (they will be raised compared to the BPhdc), put the center of the tulle over the hook and draw the loop through the post, put down your hook, reach through the loop of tulle and pull the tulle tail through to secure it around the post.  Go all the way around, and if you would like more fluff, you can also attach tulle from the inside of the tutu hugs & kisses ring of the tutu using the BPhdc FDC posts.

Capital Letter X – The Crochet Lounge Way

Free Crochet Alphabet Pattern

If you haven’t noticed the random order the alphabet patterns are arriving in… I’ll let you in on a tiny secret… I love yarny designs that don’t have unnecessary tails to weave and tuck, and I love playing with shaping because it hones my hookin’ skills, so I wait until I see the piece in my mind’s eye done as a one-piece vs. breaking yarn before I hook and post.  There are several letters sitting in the WIP pile because I think they can look better than their current iteration. MMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmm x-ray of the mind :)

Materials:

Boom Boom Ironman Toddler Fingerless Gloves (2T) - Free Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern

Boom Boom Iron Man Toddler Fingerless Gloves (2T) – Fusion Circles


Pattern:

Worked in fsc with multiples of 2, if you choose to chain and make a row of sc instead of fsc, you will work with multiples of 2+1(for turning chain), then sc in 2nd ch from hook across.

With Red
Start with 48″ tail (this tail will be used to go around the bottom of the glove in crab stitch

Fsc 18  make sure you do not twist the yarn, join with slst.*

*Note: when joining fsc in a circle, you will need to sew the beginning yarn tail to the bottom of the last fsc stitch to join as well as joining by slst at the top (top is the sc stitch, bottom is the foundation chain portion of fsc)
