Free Pattern Friday – Strawberry Ice Cream Baby Blanket


Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Last week, I mentioned I would be sharing patterns created for my favorite blanket-making charity, The Linus Connection, during the month of May.

Take a deep breath and prepare yourself. Today’s free pattern is crochet!


That’s right, in a former life, I spent quite a lot of time working up my own crochet patterns. That’s where the “hooked” in Sewhooked comes from!

This pattern is a little extra special because it has gone on to have a life as a Knit Picks pattern. Quite an honor!

This pattern uses a Magic Ring (aka Magic Loop). It’s an easy peasy way to start a worked-in-the-round project.

5 Minute Baby Booties

5 Minute Baby Booties

Well, okay, you’ve got me.  Five minutes might be a bit of an exaggeration.  Even so, I’d say 10-15 minutes tops to make these sweet little booties that I designed to accompany some loom knit baby hats I’ve been making to donate to a hospital where a friend works.

Make them for a baby you love or a baby in need!
