Free Pattern Friday – Coconut Candy Crochet Baby Blanket


Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today is the final freebie for the month of May designed especially for The Linus Connection.

In the distant, far, far away time of 2005, my website was called Jen’s Crochet & Crafts. There were at that time, way more crochet than crafts, and the very beginning of my quilting adventures!

Coconut Candy was posted to that long ago web site and has been along for the ride ever since. I’ve made several for The Linus Connection over the years, some multicolored, some not.

Working on today’s post led me to revisit my Ravelry page, something I haven’t done in a long, long time. I spent a little time there updating links and making sure all the patterns actually went somewhere. It seems a long time ago that I was almost exclusively designing crochet projects!

I hope you’ll enjoy today’s yummy pattern. ♥

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!
