Do not take the pictures and claim them as your own!

Crochet Hawaiian Baby Girl Diaper Cover and Flower - Free Pattern

I have recently released my newborn crochet Hawaiian Baby Girl Outfit for sale on Ravelry. I have been trying to get this specific post up for a few days, but just have not been able to get around too it with the Easter Holiday.

I know many people have been asking about the flower pattern specifically and it has been created by a different designer and the link to that pattern can be found here on Pinterest. Check the captions for the pattern as I have found the link to be invalid and this is where I originally found the pattern was in the Pinterest caption.

The diaper cover is one I use for any outfit with a diaper cover, designed by Flower Creations in sizes 0-9 months and absolutely FABULOUS! I have done this pattern several times and I absolutely love it, my favourite part is that it works up extremely quick! Find that pattern over on her blog right here.

To find the rest of the pattern can be found on Ravelry to purchase. I hope you enjoy these 2 patterns themselves as they are fabulous patterns to put with anything! Perhaps a headband with the flower plus the diaper cover with the flower over the button?! It would look so cute!

Changes to This Darn'd Yarn

Yes, there has recently been a major change here on the blog. I have deleted a lot of old posts that either weren't viewed in a long time or that I didn't feel needed to be shared. I have also removed one of my most popular posts (yes I know, terrible haha!). I will be editing it and releasing the pattern for sale once it has been tested.

These changes have come with the fact that I don't have much time lately to keep up with the blog and I felt the blog was getting cluttered with junk. I work very hard on some of these patterns, doing research, finding testers and writing the pattern. This is why some patterns will be released for sale. I decided to keep this blog around for free patterns, new releases and also for crochet things I find around the web! Hopefully you can understand where I am coming from!

I hope you understand the reason for these changes. If I can help you in any other ways, please contact me thisdarndyarn@gmail.com

Revised: Baby Girl Hawaiian/Hula Newborn Set

This post may contain affiliate links. Ordering a product through these links may result in a commission, which helps pay for the cost of running this site. All opinions are 100% honest and my own. Read my full disclosure policy here.

I have revised the Crochet Baby Girl Hawaiian/Hula Set and have decided too release the pattern for sale. I know I had it up previously for free, but as I have edited it, revised again, gotten testers for the pattern and all the effort I had put into fixing the pattern, I will have it for sale. I know this is coming as an upset to many visitors to this blog, but I know it is a highly viewed pattern and I didn't want to completely remove the pattern.

Link to Pattern is here. Coupon code: Special for $2.00 off the purchase price (expiry March 29th).

Hopefully you can all understand my reason for re-releasing this pattern as a sale item.
