Newborn leg warmers pattern

I really enjoy making newborn props! I don't know why, but it tends to be what I'm drawn to in this big ol' world of crochet!

The most recent new born prop I've been drawn too are little leg I made a pattern up to share with you!! 

I am hoping to get a picture if these cuties being used real shortly!! When I do, I will be sure and let you all see it!!! 

Ready for the pattern??? we go then!! 
Newborn leg warmers

Hook size "I"
Hook size "K"

Worsted weight yarn(medium thickness)

Make 2

Before beginning chain...leave a bit longer tail to use for stitching leg warmer closed.

Using hook size "I"
Ch 22; turn

Row 1; sc in 2nd ch from hook; sc in each ch across (21 sc)
Ch 2; turn.

Row 2; *Sk 2 st, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc each in next stitch*
Repeat from * to * around when 3 stitches are left skip 2 st, 1 hdc in last stitch, ch 2; turn

Row 3; 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc each in top of dc from previous row and in each dc across. Hdc in last stitch. Ch 2; turn (6 shells across)

Repeat row 3 until piece measures 4 1/2" then go up 2 hook sizes. In my case I went up to a size "K" 6.50mm

Then continue repeating row 3 until piece measures 6"
(This will give the flare bottom)
Tie off. Weave in end.

Using long tail from beginning, fold leg warmer together with right sides together and stitch the seam closed. Stop 3 rows before the bottom. Or at the point it begins to flare. Tie off, weave in ends. Turn right side out. Add ribbon bow! Or embellish however you like!!

Measurements open and laying flat are:
Thigh: 5 1/2
Mid: 5 1/2
Ankle: 6 1/4
Length: 6

Nottingham newsboy hat pattern

This right here is my 18 month old baby girl Charlotte AKA Charlee! I can't even explain how much joy this little spitfire brings our family!! She's a spoiled, sweet, not so sweet, girly girl of a princess!!
...and she knows it too! Lol!

Now! HERE (excuse the picture-i took it off my FB page) is the newsboy hat that I sell a ton of!! Super popular!! 
(I made this pattern up after I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for online...if this hat is similar or the same as a pattern that already exists I promise I did not know about it! Thank You!)

I have never ever written a pattern before...ever!! If you should have any difficulty following this pattern please PLEASE feel free to ask and I will try to help as best I can! I am also gonna include some pictures which should help...well...they always help me anyway! ;)

For the yarn I use Vanna's choice acrylic
Hook size "I"

**(When creating this hat for picture purposes, I used a little thicker yarn and added an extra row to make it size 0-3 months. If using Vanna's choice yarn and wanting same size go up to a size hook as well)** we go!

Start by:
Chain 2
Rd 1-DC 10 in ch 1 space
Join with sl st in 1st DC 
ch 2(counts as 1st DC now and throughout)

Rd 2(increase row)-DC in same stitch as ch 2, *2 DC in next stitch*
and in each stitch around; join with sl st to top of ch 2 (20 DC)

Rd 3(increase row) chain 2; 1 DC in same stitch; *1 DC in next; 2 DC in next* repeat from * to * around. Join with sl st to top o
f ch 2. (30 DC)

Rd4(increase row) chain 2; DC in same stitch as ch 2; *1 DC in next 2 stitches; 2 DC in next stitch* repeat from * to * around; join with slip stitch to top of chain 2. (40 DC)

Rd 5(increase row) chain 2; DC in same stitch as ch 2; *1 DC in next 3 stitches; 2 DC in next stitch* repeat from * to * around; join with slip stitch to top of chain 2. (50 DC)

This is what it should look like at this point.  Now we will work on lengthening the body...

Rd 6- skip 1st stitch; DC in next (I have posted pictures below to help); DC in skipped stitch creating an "X"; *skip 1 stitch just in front of 1st DC; 1 DC; 1 DC in previous skipped stitched*; repeat from * to * blank around; DC in remaining stitch; join to top of ch 2.

Rd 7-9 chain 2; 
repeat round 6
(4 total rows of "X" stitch)

Rd. 9- ch 2; HDC in 1st stitch and each stitch around. Join to top of ch 2.

Rd 10-  chain 2; HDC in back loop (refer to pictures below) around; join to top of ch 2.

Rd 11 repeat row 10 (for size 0-3 months add addt'l row here)


Rd 1- 24 SC in back loops of  HDC's (pictures below)
Ch 1; turn

Rd 2- SC 7; 2 SC in next stitch; SC 8; 2 SC in next stitch; SC in remaining 7; ch 1; turn

Rd 3- skip 1st stitch; SC 7; 2 SC in next; SC 8; 2 SC in next; SC 7; leave last stitch un-worked; ch 1 turn.

(Repeat rd 3 one more time for size 0-3 months)

To Finishing
Sc. In same stitch and evenly down side of brim. Sc LOOSELY in back loops (like previous hdc rows) around to other side of brim. Crochet evenly up side of brim and across brim. Join with a sl st to 1st sc. Tie off, weave in ends.

Finished measurements newborn sz
Laying flat
6 inches across
5 inches top to bottom

Finished measurements sz 0-3 months 
6.5 inches across middle 
5.5 inches top to bottom

Finished hat!!!
