Winter crochet

Standard

Hello!

First of I would like to apologize for not posting on sunday. I am back to my routine now and next post will be on tomorrow. As usually.

As you may already know about my upcoming holiday in Rovaniemi in Finland. I am slowly getting ready with making myself a scarf and a matching hat. It is pretty cold out there. Around -20°C.

This is me proudly wearing the scarf. I found this cool pattern for the scarf and a matching hat. My version is done in lilac chunky sirdar hayfield wool blend. It’s made using 9mm hook. It I very enjoyable and quick to complete. Please stay with me till the bottom of the post to see where I found the patterns.

The scarf has this cool buttons there too. They are only decorative but they add a gorgeous touch to the already awesome scarf.

Unfortunately once I got to edging my hat I have ran out ofnyarm. I will need to buy one more skein in order to complete it. And I can’t wait to show you the final picture. However for now you can see how kuch progress I have made on the hat.

Hello everyone!

I have finally designed my own item! And I have written out the pattern for it. It is infinity scarf that I have done for my sis in law to be.

I feel the winter is my favourite time of the year unless there is no snow, like here where I live. It’s always rainy in Ireland. Thats why I am heading away to Finland, Rovaniemi, arctic circle in february! Let me show you the finished product and I will take you straight to the free pattern that will be forever available on my blog.

Little hatties

Standard

Hey folks,

Today is the day that I share with you a completed project for the first time. I am very excited to show you my recent makes for an order. They will both be available in my Etsy  store, links to etsy will be posted under the pictures.

Abbreviation :
Hdc – half double crochet
Fphdc – front post half double crochet
Bphdc – back post half double crochet.

Pompom hat
This is simple hdc toddler hat where I have substituted the last few rows of hdc for fphdc and bphdc. The purpose of the fphdc and bphdc was to create this ribbed effect. Hat was made using Sirdar hayfield bonus dk and 5mm knit pro waves hook.
This hat was super easy and super quick to complete.

Tricolor hat
This is also a toddler size simple hdc hat. However in this one I have added earflaps and braids. Colour pattern was suggested by the girl that ordered. I enjoy making hdc hats as they add up really quickly. As the previous one it was made using Sirdar hayfield bonus dk and 5mm hook.

I am not very good with sizing so I have used Sarah’s  pattern to figure out the correct size. For the link to her Repeat Crafter Me frog hat pattern that helped me a lot please click here.

Please share and let me know what are your thoughts on the hats that I have shared with you all today.
