{free crochet leaf patterns} and new hat patterns for babies, kids, and adults - in my shop!


FINALLY! My two new crochet hat patterns are now in my Etsy shop. I know, I promised them by the end of last week, but there were a couple of technical difficulties, and all the Christmas prep has really thrown me off! They're ready to go now, though, and you still have time to make them before Christmas! The Lizzy Cloche takes me less than an hour to complete, and the All-Star Beanie just under two hours! Plus there are tons of yarns on sale right now at the craft stores, so these are great, inexpensive gifts! I also posted some adorable jewelry in my shop that were left over from a craft fair I did in Seattle. Another great last-minute gift!


The All-Star Beanie has to be my favorite boy hat ever. Although I'm working on one in girl colors that is going to be fabulous! There are 7, count 'em 7, sizes in this pattern. I covered the whole range--from 0-6 to Adult, and everything in between. Plus you get the cute star pattern that you can use on lots of other projects! I seriously love this hat.



I have been wearing my Lizzy Cloche crocheted hats almost non-stop these days. (I've made it for myself in several colors!) My husband gives me the worst time about the huge flower, but I love it! If it's a bit big for you, no worries. There are three rosette sizes in the pattern, so you can choose the one that fits your style best. This pattern is the big girls' version of my Ava Cloche pattern, and it comes in sizes from 12 months to Adult.



If you love the Ava Cloche, here's a new one I just made in pink. It's sooooo sweet! I am in love with it! The Ava Slippers came out adorably, too!


I added a little leaf to each, and I wanted to share the leaf pattern with you! It's quick and easy, and makes such a great addition to my crocheted rose pattern (in both the Ava and Lizzy patterns). Or it would be adorable with any of my other flower patterns, like the five-petal flower and the six-petal flower. Enjoy!

Is there any way that I can just buy an Ava set already made from you? I have a 3 month old but I don't crochet and I've looked on Etsy but I can't find any as cute as yours. My email is erica_hancock(at)hotmail(dot)com. Thanks.

hi...love the hat! do you sell grownup ones completed? i can't crochet either!

You wrote in your product description for the All Star Beanie that it is "easy." I am literally a beginner. I have crochet materials but I've only tried to crochet once because I'm so intimidated! I love this beanie, though. Would it be a good one to start with? And, do you think you could fly to GA to walk me through it? I guess that might cost extra.

Love the new patterns! I just might have to make the Lizzy Cloche for my sister-in-law's Christmas present. So cute. Thanks for providing these patterns.

Yes, I take custom orders! Please e-mail me at littlebirdieclasses@gmail.com for prices and colors.

And yes, Brett, it might cost a little extra for me to fly to Georgia to walk you through the pattern. :) The levels of crochet patterns go Beginner, Easy, etc. So a super beginner might be a little frustrated with the fancy stitch used, even though it's not hard. It's just not a the same stitch you learn right off.

I purchased the All Star Beanie pattern a while ago and I love it but I find that it doesn't stretch very much and I have a hard time fitting to heads. Am I doing something wrong with the stitch?? Thanks
