Serendipity Hood Crochet Pattern

Serendipity Hood Crochet Pattern: $5.00


I’ve been on a serious crochet binge lately! I think I just love how fast it is to finish something really impressive. Sometimes you just need those quick projects to keep you going. Although this hooded infinity scarf is huge- I finished it in an evening.

If you haven’t noticed- I’m kind of a big baby when it comes to cold weather. I knit and crochet a lot of things that never get worn. Not because I don’t like them, but because I have a serious aversion to leaving my house when it’s below 40 degrees. And let’s be honest, is there really any real reason to leave your house in the winter? Can’t we as humans develop the technology to hibernate already? You would think.

But if you find yourself needing to brave the sub 40 temperatures this year, I’ve got you covered. Literally! (That’s a scarf pun for you). If you want something that will get you from point A to point B without even noticing a chill, this is your garment!

The Serendipity hood is a blast to make, and a blast to wear. The oversized look adds a bit of drama, and it’s kind of… dare I say…. sexy? Sexy and ninja-esque. And warm. And let’s be honest- warm, sexy, ninja are the only 3 words that matter in fashion this fall!

Can't get enough of this beautiful yet simple crochet pattern!

Can’t get enough of this beautiful yet simple crochet pattern!

Flapper Hat Pattern: $5.00 


I pictured this hat in my sleep- in my DREAMS! It seems so simple, but I wanted to badly to get it just perfect. So I worked it, then re-worked it, then re-worked it again…. and again… and you get the picture. The finished product came out so simple- I was over thinking things (as I tend to do) and now I want to share this pattern with you.

The pattern took me 4 balls of Yarn Bee Alpaca (which by the way- is not a great yarn to crochet with if you make mistakes and want to rip out your work- it’s nearly impossible.) Once I switched to Big Twist Chunky Yarn I was able to make mistakes that didn’t cost me $10.00! Lesson learned- alpaca blends are beautiful when you know what you’re making- not so much for pattern making where mistakes are bound to be made, and stitches destined to be ripped out.

You don’t actually need 4 balls of yarn to crochet this hat- you’ll only need about 140-180 yards of any bulky yarn. The hat is worked from the top down, and features an asymmetrical brim below a cloche style fit. I hope you love this hat as much as I do- I’m off now to crochet it in red, teal, and maybe yellow too!

Oh- and by the by- for a limited time I’m actually selling custom made versions of this hat in my new Etsy shop for $39! Check it out here!

Free Printable Hand Knit with Love and Hand Crochet With Love Labels

FREE printable hand knit or crochet with love labels for your holiday knitted gifts!

If you’re thinking about giving away some hand made gifts this year, it’s a really good idea to start working those needles now! I’ve got a couple of hats done, but I feel like I’m just so behind! In all honesty, I’ll probably end up at Bed Bath & Beyond on Christmas Eve furiously taking advantage of their free gift wrapping station like I always do, but hey, at least I’m trying to get things started early this year!

My gift knitting did take a time out so that I could make a hat (or 5) for myself (and patterns for you, I didn’t forget about you!) After living in the tropics for a year, I couldn’t wait to get back to Ohio just in time to wear all the things I knitted by the pool.

Anywhoo on the topic of gifting, I decided to create some fancy schmancy labels to go along with my knitted gifts, and wanted to share them with you! I created 2 designs, with very different styles for you to choose from.

FullSizeRender

Details:

The labels will print landscape style on 8.5×11 paper, with dotted lines for you to cut along. These should be able to be wrapped around lots of your hand knit or crochet gifts! If you find that you have a thick scarf or something that the label won’t quite fit around, stick a larger, fancier piece of paper behind it, and glue the label to that, then wrap that around your gift.

How to print:

Click on the linkss below. This will take you to a new page with just the labels. Go to File > Print, and make sure to select “Landscape” not portrait.

Happy Knitting, and Happy Gifting!

loving this gold necklace

It feels so good to be back home! We just finished decorating our house when we left for Belize. Decorating our house was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done (and I don’t think I’ll ever be done). Lately I’ve been eyeing anything gold. I don’t want to Trump my place out or anything, but I think a few gold accents scattered throughout the house really adds a pop of visual interest!
