One Skein and One Day Scarf

My mum sent me such a fun find!  A box of vintage yarn.

  My favorite. My mum is an avid collector. She hunts around at auctions and antique malls for neat finds to sell and fix up. She found this box ofnyan . Some of the skeins are from the 80’s and some are as old as the 1950’s!!  
   My oldest son snatched up the two fuzziest blue yarns and asked for a scarf. While waiting for my daughter to be born I decided to try and whip up a scarf as fast as I could during early labor!  


One skein & One Day scarf. 

This pattern is great for beginners or for those who started making Xmas gifts at the last minute ;). it’s literally only two lines of pattern and lots of repetition. 
     *You will need*

*Bulky yarn. (I used Lion Brand homespun) 

*9 mm hook

This pattern uses the Half Double Crochet. 


Start with Ch12

1.) Hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each sp across. (11hdc). 

2.) turn. ch1, hdc in each sp across. Repeat until end of skein.

Lollipop Lazy Eyes

More goodies from the kind and creative folks over at Red Heart!  I knew I wanted to dabble even more with various textures and yarn outside of Super Saver(my go to favorite for everything).   This time I used Red Hearts Boutique Fur. You can find it HERE

   The color I used is called Azalea. It was fun and flirty and reminded me of girls night in!!  What goes better with a girls night in that a good old sleepover favorite. A sleeping mask! 

  The fur is super  soft and feels great on my face. It is a bit challenging to work with, you need to rely on feel and not sight when using this yarn. It’s so darn soft i didn’t mind doing it that way at all!  Now I’d lure wary of using the fur or you feel it may be too hot this season, I created a summer(beginner) version of this pattern too!

Twilight Mermaid Crown

The wonderful folks over at Red Heart sent me some yarn in the mail to review!  As soon as it came to my door my head flooded with ideas!  My go to yarn is always their worsted weight brands, but this time I was determined to branch out and try new things! This gorgeous Red Heart Boutique Twilight in Jaded stuck out to me right away! 

 I loved it. It reminded me of Mermaids and the Sea Punk scene so I had to dabble with it!  I came up with this mermaid themed crown!               The yarn worked up great. Fast and easy since it is a bulky weight yarn.  I used the color Jaded. You can find it along with other varying colors of this yarn HERE.   It is very soft to the touch and I am living for the extra zazzy flecks of the sparkle strand in the yarn!  I can’t get over how soft this yarn is!  It didn’t fray either which surprised me since it seems to be in sort of a tube like shape. What a pleasant surprise.  Now you know I had to share how I made this cool colored crown, so I turned it into a free pattern below.

Sweetie Pie Bow Headband pattern review. 

Oversized bow:  check!

Vintage style: check!

Designed by one of my favorite designers: check!
How could I not make this adorable headband. The Sweetie Pie Bow Headband designed by Hopeful Honey. 

 
This Free pattern can be found HERE

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)

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). 

Pattern reviews

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
