Puff Stitch Romper Pattern!! Giveaway!!

I am so excited to finally have this little romper pattern finished! I often crochet little hats, and have made a few other photo props before such as diaper covers and a little dress… but had not tried a romper.  Huge thanks to Jenn with A Day In The Life Photography for suggesting I try a couple rompers! She is an amazing photographer, and I have some adorable pictures of hers to share!

This little romper uses the puff stitch to add some texture, and gives a soft, sweet look. It is quite simple to make up, and can be made in sooo many different colours! It’s really hard to choose a favourite colour.

Purple, blue, pink, grey…. so many colour options!

I have made the pattern in 3 different sizes – newborn, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months. I think these are the ages when a little romper is most likely to be used. I did make it up as a photo prop, but if you add a little onsie underneath it would be a cute little outfit. I am also working on a pattern for a little overskirt that is sweet as well.

Three Different sizes! And the little skirt pattern I am working on!

This Puff Stitch Romper works for baby boys or baby girls when you choose the colour you like best! I also have included a pattern for a little flower that can be made to go around the button on the bib part of the romper. It just adds a touch of contrast colour, and can be especially cute for making outfits coordinate for twins!

Rompers for twins – excuse the picture with the ends not tucked in – I was so happy with how they were turning out I had to take a picture!

Jenn does such an amazing job photographing littles – even 2 at a time! It sure looks like these 2 had fun getting their pictures taken. One in pink, one in purple, and look at those little hands and feet!

Adorable twins in contrasting rompers!

The pattern for the Puff Stitch Romper can be bought on ravelry, or etsy, and I will also be giving away a couple copies of the pattern! If you would like to enter the giveaway, please fill out the form below (click on the red link).


Welcome to Five Snowflakes Designs

Welcome to my Five Snowflakes Designs blog!! I hope you will enjoy following along as I create patterns, learn new stitches, and try to keep up with life in general!


Some of you have followed my Facebook page from the beginning and have seen the changes over the years, but some have not, so I will introduce myself and explain a bit about Five Snowflakes Designs.


My name is Ramona, and I have a wonderful husband named Joel, and 3 children who are growing up way too fast! We felt it was important for me to stay home with our children when they were small, so crafting and crochet has been a way for me to contribute a bit to our family finances, and a great sanity saver!



When I first opened my little shop on Etsy, it was called Cute Capes… because that is what I first started selling. When we moved our oldest daughter from her infant seat to a child car seat, I wanted something quick to put on that would be warm and cozy and cute! I sewed a little fleece cape with a warm collar that everyone seemed to like.


Then I also added some cute crocheted hats and headbands to my store – and changed the name to Cute Capes ‘n’ Caps.

 Hat pattern by Pretty Darn Adorable

Since then I have discovered that I love designing patterns, and all of my items are now my own design. My patterns cover a wide range of items – animal hats, basic hats, cuddle cocoons, fingerless gloves, boot cuffs, and more, and I needed a name that would work for everything I make.

                          Most pictures are from A Day in the Life Photography, the elf hat picture is from Evie Rose Photography, and Patterns can be purchased here


Thus, the name Five Snowflakes Designs… five for the number of our little family, snowflakes because they are beautiful and unique (and I hope my patterns are too), and designs because that’s what I love doing!


I hope you enjoy following along and find many patterns you love! Please come visit me on Facebook, check out my Etsy shop and keep up with the latest pattern sneak peeks on Instagram.


To add some extra fun to this intro post I’m also going to have a pattern giveaway! One winner can choose FIVE of their favourite patterns! To enter, please use the entry form below. The giveaway is open worldwide and ends June 13th at 10:00 pm.
