Crochet Ideas for back to school

[subscribe2]Hello my crafty friends,

As I look around at the stores that I frequent I see “Back to School” signs just about everywhere. My little butterfly (our granddaughter) lives with us but she is a few years away from this yet just turning 3 in May. So I look over at the mom’s trying to get their children into some appropriate fall clothing and the ongoing battle that is required on what binders, pens and paper are needed.

When my daughter was just becoming a tween I ended up setting a budget on what we would buy. I can remember those days standing in Staples and basically negotiating with my daughter ok so you have now gone past your budget of for books, paper and pen what item will you be putting back?

We didn’t really enjoy this part of the shopping as you surely can tell. But once we moved to the clothing side we still had a budget but a lot of what she would have was from my crochet hook. So that gave us a bit of freedom when we shopped. Today I wish I had kept some of those things I made for her but a lot of it was tailor made for her based on what she had told me was the “latest” looks or styles. There was many a time that I had created a sweater and ripped it completely apart because it wasn’t the way it was supposed to be. Lol, I seriously know where I get my grey hair these days…..

Tonight I thought I would share 3 patterns that could still be done up for the start of school.

Perfect for those chilly fall mornings is a poncho that is very easily sized for any height.

Fingerless gloves are very popular for many.

A brimmed cable detailed hat is also a must have.Crochet Hat Pattern
