Cohen Rocks! ... and cowboy boots crochet pattern...

So, there's a little baby boy who will soon be born to some awesome friends, and these are the gifts that I whipped up for the shower!


I love this little newborn hat! It is much harder to find and create cute baby boy stuff, but I am super happy with this. I'll post the pattern soon. :)


I think the pom-pom on top is my favorite part! :)


Cohen obviously needs a pair of cowboy boots...


These boots actually aren't made for walking. They are much too tiny.


Here's a little onesie with Cohen's name...


And another awesome rock 'n roll onesie with guitars, embroidered "Cohen Rocks!"


This is the entire ensemble. I love it! :) Hope you like it too, Cohen! (and parents)


Would you like to make a pair of those crochet cowboy boots yourself? Here's how! I previously used a pattern that I found online, but now that I've made several pairs, I've modified to create my own!

  7. Can you tell me where the difference is? I have made several of these as well using the free pattern by Hodge Podge and I can't find any difference except that there are more starting chains. I thought perhaps you would make the top edge different, but it is the same too.

    1. Hi Anon! I'm not sure it is different than the Hodge Podge pattern. I looked it up and saw that was posted in 2012 and that it was "reprinted from a website where it was being offered free and without disclaimers." It might have been drawn from here?.

      I originally found a pattern for this on an AOL Homepages site a LONG time ago. I printed it out and made notes on the paper, of my changes, until I decided to post it on this blog in 2011.

      Hope that helps!
      Jennifer
