This photo tutorial is all about how to change colors when you are crocheting the Suzette Stitch.

Hello Everyone!

I’m so excited to give you the patterns for the hats and booties that match the Rag Quilt Style Baby Blanket! There are three size options available for both the hats and the booties. Perfect for a growing baby!
