After making these dress blankets for my daughters I knew I needed something for the boys!

Introducing the Batman Hooded Blanket:batmanhoodedblanket

My 10 year old son is a huge fan of the original Batman. You can always use black for this blanket too! Have a Batgirl fan? This hooded blanket would look awesome in purple!

This pattern is for Child Size but easily adjustable by adding or omitting rows!

What’s on my hook Wednesday?

This week I’ve been making baby cocoons.  I’m sure most of you have probably seen cocoons made with the crocodile stitch, usually Owl themed. They’re super cute.

Mine are a little different, the crocodile “scales” line up, the other patterns the “scales” are worked so they are staggered, this is just how mine came out and I love how it looks so I went with it. Both styles are equally cute to me!

I started this one yesterday, few more rows of “scales” & then the top part and its done!

They really do work up fast, perfect for a last minute baby shower gift. After this one is done today I’ll be working on getting the pattern written up, take pictures and get it added to Raverly/Etsy.

Here’s the first one I made earlier this week, first time working with Caron Cakes, colorway is Rainbow Sprinkles. One cake made the cocoon & hat with some leftover.

Free pattern – Nursing cover

il_570xn-957536404_cyinWant a little discreet coverage while nursing in public?

If baby hates those huge ponchos/tents, this is great cover to try, light, breathable and easily portable.

Has generous opening that doesn’t get in the way, also gives baby something else to hold instead of Mom’s hair! In winter make them with acrylic and cotton in summer.

Soft worsted weight yarn & I hook(5.5mm)

Gauge: 6 sts = 2″

*Note: Ch 2 does not count as dc

Round 1: Ch 25, join with a sl st to form ring.
