SHOP FOR YARN AT ---> This is The Skirt that started it all. This is the first item I crocheted without a pattern that wasn't a blanket. This is the first thing I sold in my shop Yarn Baby, its the reason I started Yarn Baby. It's my first design. This is it...The Skirt. The pattern includes instructions for 3 different sizes; newborn, 6 months, and 12 months. This pattern would be perfect for a beginner, the only 'tricky' stitches are fpdc and bpdc so clearly written instructions have been included on how to do them. I have sold more of these skirts than anything else - I hope you do just as well! Text and photos Copyright (c)2013 by Yarn Baby, aka My Yarn Baby, all rights reserved.

DYE ALL THE COLORS! Working in the Fiber Arts was not a path I saw in my life, but I have always been into the arts. I taught music in public schools for 10 years prior to the evolution of Yarn Baby. When I became a mom, spending more time with my little people became a high priority and I went from teaching full-time to part-time to stop teaching all together. Then entered the YARN! My babies only liked blankies made of yarn, so I started calling them my little “Yarn Babies” -- thus the name of my shop. Now my boys are little fiber experts preferring blankets made with bamboo and/or silk so they “feel cold.” They know their fibers! :-) I started with crochet, then took a spinning class, started dyeing roving (for my own use) and then fell head over heels in love with dyeing yarn. So here I am…spinning, dyeing and selling yarn. RADICAL! Online yarn shop owner of only natural fiber yarns; cotton, wool, hand-dyed and handspun.
