Crochet Fun Snood – Kids of all ages will love this

Kids of all ages will love this crochet fun snood.  It works up quickly when using chunky weight yarn.  I used the Bernat Blanket Yarn from Yarnspirations.  It is soft and I really like the texture.  I used the color:  Pumpkin spice.  The ears I used the chocolate color.  The ears and the snood can be made in other colors if you prefer.  I think this snood is a fun way to stay warm.  The Bernat Blanket yarn is nice and warm.  I made the adult/teenager size.  You can purchase Bernat Blanket Yarn from your local Joann’s store or go online to Yarnspirations.com  for more selection.

Autumn is here and it’s Pumpkin Hat time

Pumpkin hat time is here.  It seems everywhere I look traces of Autumn are finally arriving in my neck of the woods.  OK, so I live in San Diego, California and there aren’t many signs of the seasons changing.  However, stores are now decorated with items that remind us it’s Autumn.  Pumpkins are making an appearance in windows and advertisements.  Halloween is just around the corner.  Pumpkin spice lattes are brewing and I am crocheting pumpkin hats.

Crochet Pumpkin Hat

I decided to design a pumpkin hat that can be worn by babies to adults.   I used medium weight acrylic yarn for my hat.  The hat in the photo I used an H hook however by adjusting the hook size the hat can be made for various sizes.  Here is a suggestion for hook sizes.  Please remember that everyone crochets with a different tension and these are just suggestions.   I used a fpdc (front post double crochet) stitch to simulate the ridges on a pumpkin.  You can choose any shade of orange and green for your hat.  You could even choose a ten or brown color as pumpkins come in a variety of colors.

Announcing the Bernat Blanket Stitch Along

Bernat Stitch Along

The Bernat Blanket stitch along is starting soon.  (Begins Oct 3, 2016)  If you enjoy a good mystery this Stitch along is for you.   This Mystery Stitch-Along is sponsored by Joann Fabric and Craft stores.  This stitch along is a great way to be introduced to the Bernat Blanket yarn if you haven’t tried it yet.  I have become a fan of this yarn.  I love the softness and how fluffy it feels.  My projects just seem to work up so quickly.   This is a mystery stitch along so you won’t know what the blankets will look like until they are complete.  Trust me they are both gorgeous.

Easy to Crochet Flower Headbands

Crochet flower headbands are so quick and easy to make.  I’m aways looking for ways to use up my many partial skeins of yarn.  It seems those partially used skeins keep multiplying.  I hate to throw them away and sometimes there isn’t enough yarn to make a big or medium sized project.  I saw these little stretchy headbands at my local Dollar Tree store.  I liked them but they were just too plain.   I decided to add some crochet flowers to the headbands to make them a little fancier.   Here is what I came up with:  Crochet Flower Headbands  : )

Today’s Project is a Robot Crochet hat

robot crochet hat showed  up this week.  (Insert Star Wars music here).  It’s a BB-8 Inspired hat.  A Robot Crochet Hat!

I have been a Star Wars fan since the beginning saga in the 70’s.   The whole idea of a fantasy world is always fun.  This past year Star Wars released their latest film “The Force Awakens.”   I have to admit that the last few Star Wars movies (Not the original series) was not really my favorites.  However, this last film “The Force Awakens” I really liked.

I found it refreshening and fun.  I really enjoyed the introduction of the new droid  BB-8.  I have been wanting to make a hat inspired by his fun personality but with so many other things going around that it has taken me this long to get around to finally crocheting one.  I hope you enjoy this Robot crochet hat.
