Important Notes

In both rounds and rows, the beginning chain does not count as a stitch.

Number in ( ) indicates total number of stitches in the round or row.

DC Cluster:
Begin by making a DC but only pull through first two loops and leave two loops on hook. Yarn over, insert hook into same stitch, yarn over and pull through first two on hook (you should be left with two loops on the hook). *Yarn over, insert hook in same stitch, yarn over and pull through bringing up to height of other loops on hook, yarn over and pull through two (you should now have three loops on hook). Repeat * until you have 7 loops on hook. Yarn over and pull through all loops. Push the cluster to the outside of the work.

With your sewing needle and grey yarn, pinch each corner and stitch across.

If you would like a clean look and to hide your stitches where you attached the hammer, loosely Ch 14 and fasten off, wrap around the hammer handle where it meets the hammer head and stitch on. Fasten off weave in ends.

If you would like your hammer to be a bit more stable you can stitch an X on the inside before stuffing. To do this use a needle and thread and stitch through the center bottom and then tack to one of the top corners. Tie off.

As we welcome new members to our family, it's natural to seek ways to preserve the fleeting moments of infancy. The idea of storing a newborn baby outfit as a keepsake resonates deeply, serving as a tangible reminder of the precious early days and the overwhelming love that surrounds our little ones.

Just as Thor's hammer symbolizes strength and protection, so too does this tiny outfit represent the immense bond between parent and child. With each delicate stitch and soft fabric, we are reminded of the profound connection we share with our little gods of thunder.

Storing heirloom crochet outfits requires special care to preserve their beauty and integrity for generations to come. Here are some tips to ensure they remain in excellent condition:

Cleanliness: Before storing, ensure the outfits are clean and free from any stains or debris. Follow the care instructions provided for the specific yarn or thread used in the crochet.

Proper Folding: Avoid hanging crochet garments as it can cause stretching or distortion over time. Instead, gently fold the outfits along natural lines to prevent creasing.

Acid-Free Tissue Paper: Place acid-free tissue paper between layers of folded garments to provide cushioning and prevent friction between delicate fibers.

Storage Containers: Choose a storage container that is clean, dry, and free from pests. Opt for acid-free archival boxes or storage bins to protect against yellowing or deterioration caused by acidic materials.

Avoid Plastic: Avoid storing crochet outfits in plastic bags or containers as they can trap moisture and promote mildew growth. Instead, use breathable fabric storage bags or containers to allow air circulation.

Climate Control: Store the outfits in a cool, dry environment away from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and humidity. Fluctuations in temperature and humidity can cause fibers to weaken and degrade over time.

Moth Prevention: Place cedar blocks or lavender sachets in the storage container to deter moths and other pests that may damage the delicate crochet.

Regular Inspection: Periodically inspect stored garments for any signs of damage or pests. If any issues are found, take immediate action to address them to prevent further deterioration.

By following these tips, you can ensure that heirloom crochet outfits remain in pristine condition, allowing future generations to enjoy their beauty and craftsmanship. Happy Crocheting!
