Summertime Concert Crown

ive been seeing a lot of festie themed pictures all over my Facebook feed. I wanted to join the fun without actually going to a festival/concert. 

 
This pattern is really easy to make. It’s good for beginners who are learning double and triple crochet stitches. It also uses the same method as the Fatty Boom Bloom flower I design using Silk Sari by Red Heart Yarns. (Realistically any yarn can be used for the flower) 

  
Summertime Concert Crown:

4.0 mm hook

Red Heart Super Saver in Plumb Pudding

Terms:

      Sc- single crochet

      Dc- double crochet

      Tc- triple crochet (similar to dc but you y/o twice,)

      Hdc- half double crochet

  

Ch45

Row1: Sc in 5th sp from hook, *ch2 skip 2 sc. Repeat from * around ending with a sc. 

Ch1

Row2: In ch2 sp, sc, hdc, dc, tc, ch2, tc, dc, hdc, sc. Repeat in each ch2 sp. fasten off and weave in ends. 

Depending on the width of your head, you will need to make 8-12 flowers. I used 8(21in) for my head. 

  
       Assembly: Now there is two ways to sew the headband. You can do,what I did, and sew the tips of one petal to another, or you can make a band to sew them on to by ch until the length of your head. My head measured 21 inches(8 flowers). 

Little boy themed pattern review. 

So many baby boys in my family back home in Pennsylvania. I had to make more hats for little Liam back home.  I decided to go with my favorite color combo for boys to make him a few hats to grow into. 

 
The owl design is called Oh Boy Oh Boy Owl and is designed by Cre8tion Crochet.  This free pattern can be found HERE

   I love how it worked up. The ears bend on their own, the eyes just make his owl face light right up.  I had no issues working this hat up and I love how the instructions included how to carry out the color changes. 

 The Beret hat to the right you have seen before!  

It’s a Posh Pooch design!  Called Strawberry Shortcake Beret. (For Christmas).  This FREE pattern can be found HERE. 

     I knew the same three cute boy colors would be perfect for this hat.  I made it for a toddler so that Liam can wear it once he outgrows his Owl hat.   The review for this hat can be found HERE

Summer SC headband. (Pattern reviews too)

Another Sunday is approaching and the boys have outgrown a size yet again. I needed some cute accessories for Their new church clothes, as well as for mommy (me) to match. I came up with this super simple and quick headband for starters.

Crochet Slippers Pattern Review

Crochet Slippers Pattern design by Look at What I Made.   
 
This FREE pattern can be found HERE.  

I honestly can’t count how many pairs of slippers I have made in the past. . .  I knew I wanted a more lacy girly looking slipper to fill my slipper obsession void. I stumbled on these gorgeous ones on Facebook!  It took me an afternoon to make so I was able to whip them up and wear them so soon!  The pattern is very easy to follow and the way it works up into the slipper shape is really cool to watch as you work along.  The lacy look also makes them perfect for spring/summer.
