Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Good Afternoon Lovelies! 

I am in the blogging mood today, so I thought I would share one of my favorite LuLu Belle Designs washcloth patterns!  ....who DOESN'T LOVE a FREE pattern?! us on Facebook for more free patterns!

This is my fav pattern for washcloths because its great for everything from dishes to scrubbing anything in the kitchen or bathroom... its just perfect :) 

I based this pattern off of the S E D G E stitch and went from there! The sedge stitch is a great textured stitch that gives you some good scrubbing power with less elbow grease ;)

......okay, here we go!

LuLu B's :: crochet hat size chart

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Hello lovelies!

I know a lot of you have questions on what size to order sometimes :) so here is our size chart info.  If you are measuring here are some tips:

1. The measurement should be taken with something that cannot be stretched, such as a soft tape measure or piece of cotton string or shoelace! 

2. Wrap the tape snugly around the widest possible circumference around... Remeasure 3 times, and take the largest number.  I know little ones can sometimes protest, so best to try a few times ;)

3. See below for your size!

Baby :: 0 to 3 months 
   » Head: 13" - 14"

 Baby :: 3 to 6 months   
   » Head: 14" - 17"

 Baby :: 6 to 12 months 
   » Head: 16" - 19"
