Button Up Waves Hooded Cocoon Pattern Release

Are you searching for a fun and new baby item? Well, here it is…
The Button Up Waves Hooded Cocoon!
An adorable hooded cocoon made in a luxurious wave stitch (see close up in last image) makes this a must have pattern for baby! What a fun and one of a kind gift this would be. 
The hooded cocoon is more of a sleeping bag than a tight cocoon that can be difficult to squeeze the baby into. It buttons on both sides to allow for easy placement in and/or out. The edge of the cocoon, just below the chin, features a rolled edge look that is simple but clean looking. The hood features a ribbed edging to give it a cozy look around the babies face. This cocoon is made as one piece and the pattern includes sizes 0-3 month, 3-6 month, and 6-12 month.
You can get your copy on: Ravelry or Craftsy

You have all seen the adorable bonnet/stuffy sets out there. I have even released a few. But each time I do someone asks for just the stuffy pattern. So here goes!


Grab your copy on Ravelry / Craftsy / Etsy
The stuffy pattern includes the Teddy Bear, Fox and Bunny Stuffies. They are about 7 inches tall, the bunny does measure 8 inches when including the tall ears. These are adorable to add to a newborn gift with a blanket, bottle or jumper set. The stuffies will also fit nicely in a Christmas stocking or Easter basket.





I hope you enjoy the pattern set.

Grease Monkey Cap Pattern Release

      No Comments on Grease Monkey Cap Pattern Release
A few years ago I had a photographer contact me about a custom hat that she wanted to go with one of her new props. If you know me, this is what I love! She sent me a picture and we worked together through a few different designs until we got it right. What do you think?
The Grease Monkey Cap fit the picture perfect! I love how it came together and it is now a new pattern released from My Sweet Potato 3 Patterns.
Grab your copy on:
The vintage look of the Grease Monkey Cap is seen in the entire design. The hat is made to sit above the ears (not cover them like most traditional crochet hats). The brim is made extra long to help create that vintage “flip” look. There are directions on where to fold the brim to get it to flip correctly. The pattern includes sizes from newborn up to adult. Here a a few views of the hat from the front and side (excuse the baby watermelon, it was the only thing that was the right size for a 12 month hat).
Just for fun, here is the original image I was sent as a sample.

Easter Egg Display Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Easter Egg Display Crochet Pattern
Remembering my Grandmother and her love of thread crochet is what inspired the Easter Egg Display Pattern. Each year my Mom displays a large egg with Easter trinkets inside that my Grandma made. It wouldn’t be Easter at Mom’s without that out on the entryway table. I wanted to bring some of that into my own home and so I created a much smaller version with more detailed design and I hope you like it to.


 The Easter Egg Display features a chevron pattern around the main part of the egg with a simple pattern on the top and bottom. The bottom is made flat so it can stand by itself. The pattern includes instructions on how to starch (stiffen) the final egg using household items. The Easter Egg Display stands about 10″ tall and is about 8″ wide. What a fun gift for Easter or a great memory your kids can have as you bring out the Display each year.

I have received so many comments about the Teddy Bear Set, I mean seriously, it is so cute!

I had to create some more with and the requests came from all of you. I am excited to show you the Bunny & Fox Sets. They have been shipped off to be photographed so you will see they are just as darling soon. 


Both of these crochet pattern comes with complete instructions for this adorable Stuffy and matching Bonnet. The completed bunny stuffy is about 8″ tall, from ear tips to bottom of feet.
The completed fox stuffy is about 7″ tall. 

The Bunny Bonnet is a simple design with a ridged/cable effect that frames the face, this adds just a touch of character and strength to help hold the ears up on the bonnet. The ears are flexible and can stand straight up or with a simple fold they can bend downwards. The bonnet comes in sizes from newborn up to child. 

The Fox bonnet is also a simple design but has a criss cross design that begins about a third of the way back from the front of the bonnet. The criss crosses are only for character and add a lot of it! The bonnet comes in sizes from newborn up to child.
This is a lovely set for any Mom to be, 
any child for Easter, 
a first Birthday (or any birthday for that matter),
or other special occasion.

Free Mustache Cowl Crochet Pattern

      4 Comments on Free Mustache Cowl Crochet Pattern
A Cute, Fun, Unique, Sure to Make You SMILE Cowl!
The mustache cowl is all those wonderful things and is a free pattern to you from
This fun cowl is quick to make and would be fun in any colors. I personally like the vibrant and bright colors for the dreary days of winter. I mean seriously, we haven’t seen sunshine for almost 3 weeks. I needed something bright and colorful to work on!

Save this pattern in your Ravelry Account for easy access.

For the cowl, it is a very basic crochet pattern and can easily be adjusted for any size. I made the child size but alternative stitch counts in parenthesis would be for an adult size.
For your gauge check use Hook K = 9 rows and 12 hdc = 4 inches square

Using Worsted Weight Yarn and Crochet Hook K (6.5 mm)

Work 65 (80) foundationless hdc, join in first hdc making sure not to twist, this will form a ring (tutorial here-also know as a foundation hdc- I know that doesn’t make much sense)
Row 2-18 (24): Ch 2, hdc in each st around, join, after last row is completed,
Fasten off and bury all ends, You will need to also sew/join the bottom of the first and last hdc from the foundation row.

Laying flat the completed measurements for the cowl are:
Child Size = 11 inches wide X 8 inches high
Adult Size = 15 inches wide X 10 1/2 inches high

For the Mustache I used the pattern by Tutus & Tea Parties. Again I used worsted weight yarn but used a crochet hook K (6.5 mm) instead of what was recommended. The pattern is very easy to follow and works up quick.
I sewed on the mustache to the cowl so that the top of the mustache was just below the 3rd row from the top (the mustache curl tips was about 1 1/2 rows from the top).
Look how cute and easy they turned out. This pattern is sure to be a hit for whoever receives the finished cowl and will turn heads and make all who see it smile!
I hope you enjoyed the pattern and decide to follow Sweet Potato 3 Patterns on facebook for patterns, tutorials and lots of crochet fun!
