I would love to have a pattern for a christening gown, I did one for my children but my oldest is now 40 years old so I don't have the pattern any more.

Ireally like the look of the site, but how do I get a pattern, my interests are mainly knitting and crochet. Thankyou.

How do I get the poncho pattern for baby?

Great site my husband was worried that I would not stop to cook.

Love all the items but wish you would include some premature baby patterns as they are hard to find


Love all the patterns but wish you could re-print some prem patterns (the all-in-one) jacket you printed sometime ago also hats, booties they went down very well .

Hi, brenda. All of our patterns live permanently on the site, so if there is one you recall from the past that you liked, it should still be archived on the site! Try using the search box and category tabs to navigate your search. Hope this helps! --Editors of FaveCrafts

baby cocoon knitted pattern

@thelmathomas76 0521634, Here is a link to some knit baby cocoon patterns on our sister site AllFreeKnitting: http://www.allfreeknitting.com/?task=search&search_term=baby+cocoon Hope this helps! --Editors of FaveCrafts

ohhhh so cute I love it so much juliouse here cuteeeeee love everything u inspired me how to knit because it looks so fun and ur knitting is so beautifullllll love knitting for ever LOL :)

Sjp9921 You can frog (unravel) unwanted sweaters (or other knitted or crocheted items) and then reuse the yarn to knit into baby hats (or other items). If you do a google search for how to reuse yarn, you will (or should) find some helpful hints on the best way to ready it for reknitting. Good luck, hope this helps and happy knitting. Tip: a good place to get yarn to recycle is thrift stores and yard sales, sometimes yardsales you can get them for free if the people are just about to close down for the day and just want to get rid of stuff.

I had read somewhere of recycling old sweaters into baby hats. Is there a pattern for this or has anyone else tried this? Yhanks
