The Baby High Tops set includes a FREE chevron stitch baby blanket pattern! I had to make a little set that would be more suited to boys! My cousin is expecting and I needed an adorable set to gift her. I was trying to decide on the style of bootie and settled on a van style high top. My kids are in love with vans so I’m assuming my cousin will love them for her baby boy due this October. My 15 year old freaked out when she saw them so I think thats a good sign!
Our Chevron Stitch Blanket is worked in Double Crochet Stitches in the back loop only. My cousin has a blue and grey themed room so I hope she loves the colours I picked for her. The little hat is worked in a ribbed stitch that can be made as a beanie or with a little brim.
I already made The Dusty Rose Baby Set for my sister-in-law but I couldn’t resist a little pink high top set for my niece. Is it just me or is anyone else obsessed with making baby things??
