It’s really one of those go to beanies that you can wear all the time. You know how I love my T.V. crochet projects, so of course this pattern is simple enough to zone out in front of some Netflix. It uses worsted weight yarn and a size 8 crochet hook.

I like to keep my ongoing projects by the couch, in a nice little organizer so that I can just grab it and start. This Needle Arts Caddy in particular comes in really handy for keeping my T.V. knitting projects organized.

Turban Hat Crochet Free Pattern

TURBANHAT

When I saw this Turban Hat by The Bunny Studio– I instantly needed to make it. Don’t you love projects like that? I dropped all plans for laundry, dishes, and general adult responsibilities in favor of picking up my crochet hook to create this beautiful hat.

What I used to make the hat:

Lion Brand Wool Ease Yarn

Us size 9 Crochet Hook

I think what stood out to me was the ease of the pattern. It was something I could do without having to figure out a new stitch, or a new technique. I had the knowledge, the yarn, and the power to create something pretty. If you know how to crochet in the round, and do a back post double crochet, you’re good to go!

At the end, I decided to alter the hat by making a small band, and sewing it on top of the cinched seam instead of doing the flowers. There are so many possibilities. If you don’t feel like crocheting an extra piece for the cinched front, you could always add a rhinestone button, or just wrap yarn around it. Your choice!

Get the free pattern from The Bunny Studio

If you want to do my alteration, here are the instructions:

Ch 4

Row 1. Sc into the 2nd ch from the hook. Sc to end of row, ch1, turn

Repeat row 1 until your band reaches about 1 3/4 – 2 inches. Cinch your hat at the seam, and sew on the piece to cover up the seam.

I’m planning to make another turban hat with a different embellishment soon. If you want to see what other hooky adventures I’m up to, you can follow my adventures on Instagram!

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!

Crochet Flapper Hat Pattern

 

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.

flapper2

flapper3

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!

Easy Beginner Crochet Blanket Pattern

I cheated on my knitting, and learned how to crochet a few weeks ago. It was a thrill! Well, it was, you know, thrilling in the way that pulling loops through other loops on a stick is thrilling. Something only knitters/crocheters can understand!
This is a simple blanket, the finished product ended up being a little larger than 5×7′ and taking about 11 skeins of “I Love This Yarn” from Hobby Lobby. I decided to go with a fun blue tweed and a mustard yellow. I love the way it turned out! I’m sitting under it right now near my fireplace trying to pretend I’m in Belize.
I really like doing long projects in the summer, since I’m not eager to use them, I can take my time on bigger projects that can last me a long time. It also keeps me away from the yarn store, which is working out well for my bank account! Since this was my first crochet project, I used some cheap yarn called “I love This Yarn”. I like that it’s machine washable (as you can see my doggie likes to take over any blankets and claim them as his own). So there was no way I could use something more expensive.
If you want to make your own crochet blanket, it’s really easy! You just need to know: Chain Single Crochet Double Crochet How to change colors (optional) You can use as many colors as you want for the stripes- this pattern would also look great in a solid color.
 
You will need: 
Size US: I9 (5.5mm) crochet hook About 10-12 skeins of worsted “I Love This Yarn” (about 3,300 yards? That seems like a lot, I apologize I didn’t really keep count.)
 
Begin:
Ch 180 sts. (This is the width of your blanket)
1. sc 10 rows with mc (ch1, turn at end of each row until 10th row)
2. ch 2, turn. dc 2 rows
3. (switch colors) ch1, turn. sc 10 rows
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until blanket reaches desired length.
*Final Stripe: With MC sc 10 rows, Dc 2 rows, Sc 5 rows.
