The pattern is available here.

I hope you like it as much as I do!

Arrowhead Hat

Wow, it has been awhile since my last post, I am sorry! I totally didn't mean for that to happen, but life got on the way and I feel like time went by without me even realizing it. Don't people say that time goes by fast when you're having too much fun? Well, I agree with that 100%!

The kids are on Summer vacation, which means I have very little time to crochet and I made the "mistake" of choosing to make a blanket and a shawl, so those are taking me forever (LOL), but we are having really good time for the most part, the kids do bicker a lot some days and it's hard not to lose it, but I guess that is normal - please tell me it is.

Anyhow, I am going to write another post about Summer vacation soon, but first I wanted to show it here the Arrowhead Hat I published back in March (yikes!), because I really love the texture this hat has and the yarn, oh I love working with Malabrigo, so soft and the colors are so amazing!

If you fancy making some for yourself, your kids, your friends or even to sell at a craft fair, the link to the pattern is here.

Free Doll Beanie Pattern

The other day I cleaned up part of my yarn stash and ended up with a tote bag full of scraps. While watching my daughter play dress up with her doll, I had the idea of using those scraps to make some little hats and scarves for her doll and extra ones so she can have friends over for a tea party with the dolls and then they can all have some hats and scarves to take home. 

After posting a picture of the doll and the little hats on instagram and facebook I got asked for the pattern, so I decided to write it up for you!

Yarn: Worsted Weight
Hook: H-8/5.0mm

Size:  Hat made to fit a 14.5" (36.8cm) doll

Gauge: 7 hdc and 6 rows =  2" square

Ch = chain
Hdc = Half Double Crochet
Sl St = Slip Stitch

Round 1: Starting with a magic ring, ch 2 (counts as a hdc now and throughout) and work 7 hdc into the ring, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch-2 to join round. Tug up tightly to close. (8 hdc)
Round 2: Ch 2, hdc in the same st as join, 2 hdc in each hdc around, sl st to top of beginning ch-2 to join round. (16 hdc)
Round 3: Ch 2,  2 hdc in next hdc, *hdc in next hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc; repeat from * around, sl st to top of beginning ch-2 to join this round. (24 hdc)
Round 4: Ch 2, hdc in each hdc around, sl st to top of beginning ch-2 to join round. (24 hdc)
Rounds 5-9: Repeat round 4.
Fasten off, weave in ends.

Optional: to add a little more detail to the hat, you can do a round of slip stitch after round 9 and you can also add a little pom pom.

Happy Crocheting!

Cobblestones Throw Crochet Pattern

It's February and a new pattern has been published, it is the Cobblestones Throw.
I love the colors I picked, I was a little skeptical in the beginning because you know, I am always making super colorful stuff, but it turned out better than I imagined.
This is a great pattern to work on, after awhile you can remember the repeats and don't even have to look at the graph. I made the whole things while watching TV with my husband in the evenings.
If you wish to give it a try, the pattern is available on ravelry, craftsy, etsy and my website, too.

Happy Crocheting!

Lucas Beanie

I have been on a hat and blanket kick lately, those are the two things I have been designing the most and I am so glad, because those are the two things I like to crochet the most. I love texture, it is super cool in my opinion to transform a solid simple skein of yarn into something new, unique.
My son loved this hat so much that he asked me to name it after him, so I did and now you the pattern for the Lucas Beanie is available in all my shops.
