When I started designing patterns back in 2011, I focused most of my designs on newborn photo props. I was in the midst of having and raising my babies, so I just couldn’t get enough of the newborn cuteness. After nearly 8 years, my designs have evolved and I design a huge variety of items. But, I always enjoy going back to homebase. So, I am excited to share my first design of this year, 2019, with you all today. I hope you love the Classic Newborn Footed Romper.
Check out how beautiful the stitching is! The ribbing look also creates a lot of stretch to the Classic Newborn Footed Romper allowing for it to stretch in length and in width. The design is for newborns but can fit a variety of weighs up to about 12 pounds (the darling baby in the photo was 10 lbs).
The Classic Newborn Footed Romper is made with Patons Lace (which is listed as a #2 Fine Weight yarn). However, my testers made their rompers with other weights like: Premier Yarns Alpaca Dance (#4 weight), Stylecraft Special DK weight and Bernat Softee Baby (#3 weight). Just make sure you check your gauge and adjust your hook to meet the correct gauge before you begin to ensure the romper comes out the right size.
I just want to take a minute and let you all know how much I appreciate your support in 2018. Sweet Potato 3 had a fun, creative and successful year and that is due to all of you. Thank you so much!
I would like to extend a 30% off sale through Tuesday 1/1/2019. There is no minimum purchase required and you can use it as many times as you like. This sale is only good in my Ravelry Shop, link is: HERE
The Cross My Heart Triangle Shawl is a classic shawl design made in a triangular shape that easily wraps around to create a beautiful warm wrap. I choose a classic grey but wanted to add a soft touch with the light yellow used to crochet the Cross My Heart Stitch. Imagine all the different colors you can use, the combinations will change the entire look of this scarf, and there are unlimited possibilities! For a little less “pop” you can make the scarf in a solid or ombre yarn. The Cross My Heart Triangle Shawl is sure to be loved.
Are you in need of a fun last minute gift idea? Well, I just might have you covered! How about a Cozy Twist EarWarmer that can be worn 2 ways? Comes in sizes from Toddler, Youth & Adult? Can be made in DK or a thin Worsted Weight Yarn? Have I got your attention?
Some days you may not be sure you want a full beanie or just an earwarmer…. Now, I have designed a fun option just for you. The Cozy Twist Ear Warmer is an oversized, or extra wide, Earwarmer. This is perfect for wearing a messy bun, pony tail or when you just want a little extra head warmth.
PLUS, the design for the Cozy Twist Ear Warmers gives you 2 ways to wear it. Simply button up along the seam to create a full ear warmer that nearly covers your entire head. OR, you can simply “twist” before you button and you will get a fun twist in your ear warmer.

One of my more popular patterns, especially this time of year, is the Beer Thirty Mitten Cozy. This is a fun gift to give to the tailgater, BBQers, Soccer Mom, or anyone who enjoys a cold beer or hot coffee during those chilly hours. The pattern includes instructions for the cozy mitten as well as a traditional mitten, it also comes in adult sizes for Small/Medium/Large/XLarge.
I recently updated the Beer Thirty Mitten Cozy Pattern to my new format AND added a video tutorial. There are a few folds you need to make as you construct this set and it is easier to show than to explain. I hope the update and new tutorial are helpful.
