New pattern up in store! Crochet Baby Shorts Pattern with Video Tutorial- Diamond Collection

New Pattern!

The Crochet Baby Shorts Pattern from the Diamond Collection!

First of the four patterns to be released! Here's the link for it
Why buy the pattern when I post so many free ones here. Well there is a full video tutorial included because no one has time to get confused. Also I include sizing for all the sizes from 0-24 months in written form with pictures! So head over to my store and check it out


*This is a Pattern for the shorts, not a finished product. Upon purchase the pattern will be available for instant download*
This is a pattern and video tutorial for the CUTEST COMFIEST Baby Shorts from the Diamond Collection. This pattern is perfectly wonderful on it's own or to be purchased in addition to the other 3 patterns in this collection. 
What makes this special??
* It's so comfy and stretchy for babies to waddle around in
* Elastic is used around the waist to keep the shorts from falling off while staying comfortable
* Great learning experience for learning how to make a shorts base with elastic
* Learn how to cable stitch crochet the diamond part of the shorts! Adding texture to crochet is just so much fun!
* Learn how to front post double crochet stitch if you don't already know or get some practice on it! (Not a common stitch)
*There's a VIDEO TUTORIAL... Need I say more?? 
*****I GUARANTEE CLARITY in my patterns!****
Nobody wants to spend money on unclear patterns. If any part of my patterns are confusing I will rewrite it...add to the video... and send the new version to everyone asap!
Included in this pattern: 
*Written pattern in standard crochet language for each size
*Pictures of steps
*Open work symbol pattern for the diamond part
***VIDEO TUTORIAL*** 1 hour and 30 minutes
The private video link includes:
*How to do the shorts step by step
*How to insert the elastic
My patterns are probably the most comprehensive pattern you will find and I am determined to help you learn so if anything is unclear just message me and we will figure it out!
The following sizes are included:
0-3 Months - 16" Around Bottom
3-6 Months - 17"
6-9 Months - 18" 
9-12 Months - 19"
12-18 Months - 20"
18-24 Months - 21"
**Skill Level: Intermediate/Advanced (but don't forget I'm here to help so go for the challenge!) 
If you are good at counting stitches and can see which stitches are on top of each other you should have no problem because that's the trickiest part involved in the diamond part.
Materials Needed:
4 Ply cotton yarn (3 ply if your baby overheats easily)
5.00 mm hook
3/4" elastic (20" should cover any size)
Needle with a Large Eye

Introducing Biweekly posts here and Weekly Video Tutorials!

For those of you wanted to become better crocheters I am going to be posting atleast 2 posts a week adding new resources and adding 1 video tutorial a week to the crochetpedia youtube channel!! 
Many of you have watched my Quick Basics of Crochet for Beginners video and have learned from that. Now I am going to start a playlist of how to crochet from start to finish adding a new video every week! It will be jam packed with all you need to know to become a confident expert crocheter. It won't be your basic how to videos...for example for the "How to Chain Video", I'll show you how to make the best chains, consistent chains, include fun projects you can do with just chains, and show different methods of crocheting into different parts of chains to give different looks! So check in again in May for new weekly videos!
