Crochet a Pair of Basketweave Fingerless Gloves or Mittens

Here is an idea to start making this year as gifts. These wonderful gloves or mitts have a unique design to crochet plus they can easily be made in your favorite yarn colors. The pattern suggests using wool yarn but any yarn that works well for mittens or gloves will be okay to use.
Generous double-treble post stitches create an airy yet warm woven fabric. Careful seaming along the thumb side connects the cables. Extend the wearing by flipping them inside out for a completely different look.

Fun and Easy Crochet Girls Dress Pattern

 Girls crochet dress pattern
I found this adorable free crochet dress pattern for free on Craftsy.
It's called a Pretty Waves Dress and can be easily adjusted to fit any size. Also, the ideas of making the straps for the dress and possibly making them more narrow or thicker depending on the girl you are making it for.  Make it for a little girl in her favorite color.
What type of yarn do you use when making a dress? Most suggest using a worsted weight yarn. Be sure it is a durable yarn that washes well. 
Suggested Yarn
Red Heart With Love Yarn
Red Heart with Love Yarn - It comes in a variety of colors and is similar to Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn. Great for sweaters, hats and clothing items.
Caron Natura One Pound Yarn
Caron Natura One Pound Yarn - While opinions vary on this yarn, I like working with it because of it's easy of use and the large amount of colors. 
Lion Brand Pound of Love Yarn
Lion Brand Pound of Love Yarn - This yarn is wonderful for baby gifts.
