FREE crochet headband pattern

This weeks free crochet pattern is another headband ear warmer.  They make such good stocking fillers and are a great way to use up left over yarn at the end of a project.  I’m really loving these at the moment as there’s so much you can do with them to make them individual and they’re a brilliant way of avoiding hat hair!

Fox Dungarees Hot Off The Hook #2

This week on HOTH it’s all about dungarees!  If you missed it don’t forget to check out my last hot of the hook instalment.  I love dungarees on babies.  Its my all time favourite outfit.  They always look so scrummy and comfortable in them.  Dungarees are also super versatile  as you can put various tops underneath to achieve a different “look” and when your toddler is ….. well ……toddling there are no issues of trousers falling down.  They’re the ultimate crawling/climbing ensemble both cute and practical!
