How To Crochet Lovey
By Anabelle Tracy © May 2014

These loveys that I made a few months ago are finally heading to their new home! They are ready to ship tomorrow together with some Santa hats I made. One of my favorite crochet designer and blogger, Kathy Lashley, has developed a group called Elk Studio- From The Heart. In this group, she invites women who are willing to donate things they made to various charitable groups and they also conduct monthly meetings with each charity. This month - July - is led by Maria Bittner of Pattern Paradise, the group will collect donations for Project Sweet Peas.  The types of projects are a preemie and infant hats, memory blankets and seasonal items. If you want to join this great cause, follow the link above!

Pompom Hat

This textured hat is very easy to make and perfect project to practice the fpdc (front post double crochet) and bpdc (back post double crochet). Adding pompoms make it looks more adorable! This can be easily adjust too to bigger size, by simply making the starting chains longer, using thicker yarn and/or bigger crochet hooks. For this project I used the Anne Geddes Baby Yarn of the Red Heart Yarn. This yarn is very soft and light weight. I highly recommended this yarn for all baby stuffs. Thanks to Red Heart for sponsoring the yarn for this project.
