Yarn, sport weight
Size F hook
No actual gauge.
Ch40, join in a ring being careful not to twist the chain.
R1 Ch2, dc in next chain and in each around, join
R2 Slst around ch2, ch2 (count as fpdc), work bpdc around next dc, (work fpdc around next dc, work bpdc around next dc)repeat around, join w/slst in ch2
R3 Repeat previous row twice more OO
R4 Ch2, dc in next st and in each st around , join w/slst in ch2
R5 Repeat previous row 19 times more OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
R6 Ch2, decrease next 2 sts together, work dc in each st around to last 2, decrease next 2 sts together, join w/slst in ch2
R7 Repeat previous row 3 times more OOO
R8 Ch2, dc in each st around, join w/slst in ch2
R9 Slst around ch2, ch2 (count as fpdc), work bpdc around next dc, (work fpdc around next dc, work bpdc around next dc)repeat around, join w/slst in ch2
R10 Repeat previous row twice more. OO
Bind off and weave in ends.
For stripes, I have found that I prefer to have 3 round stripes in the body…single rounds either left a LOT of tails to weave in when cut, or not as much stretch when carried
For the cream baby headband pictured above:
CH 70 (add length by 2's for a larger headband) and join in a loop, being careful not to twist the chain.
R1 ch 2 (count as first dc) and dc in each ch around, join with a slst in the top of ch2.
R2 slst around ch2, ch2, work bpdc around next dc, work fpdc around next dc, work bpdc around next dc), continue around, and join with a sl st in the top of ch 2.
R3+ Repeat round 2 for desired width, bind off, weave in ends. Decorate as desired. The example is decorated with a 6 petaled freeform flower and a shank button.
*example features a baby newsboy hat...this pattern will be added later :) Pin It

I have made a correction to the Little Fire Pants pattern (link in list at left of screen). Thanks again to my wool soaker group mamas...you ladies rock! If you have printed out the pattern already, please print out the updated version. There was an error in the large and extra large sizes that required a rewrite of the short row section. I apologize for any inconveniences...happy crocheting!! Pin It
