I not only love this design, but it also taught me a whole new way to crochet!!  It’s called Tunisian Crochet and is a form of crochet and knitting combined!  I love how it looks like knit but works up quickly like crochet!  Don’t know how to to Tunisian?  Hopeful Honey Included a video tutorial on how to do it! I really liked this pattern. It worked up fast and was easy to learn. I’m a beginner with Tunisia and she made it very easy to figure out and accomplish!  

   I won’t lie, I have probably worn this headband everyday since I’ve made it!(don’t worry I washed it.  Don’t be gross! Haha)

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

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.

1920’s Lacy Headband design by Hopeful Honey. 

  This FREE pattern can be found HERE

I LIED, I’m still obsessed with vintage patterns!  I knew exactly where to find my next one too. My go to gal from Hopeful Honey!  This took me a half hour to work up. Waiting room status!  I love how the stiches work up into such a pretty lacy look. I used a larger thicker weight of yarn so I had to check my gauge and ended up using a 4.0 mm hook instead. It worked perfectly. Her designs are so lovely and very easy to follow.
