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)

Is it obvious that Hopeful Honey is my favorite designer yet? If not, Don’t worry. There are many more of her designs to come this year!!! Another quick hat. Most hats are quick to work up. I used Lion brand wool ease. I love bulky yarns that work up quick this season!! I’m very happy with the result.

Again, one of my top favorite designers. I have had my eye on this pattern weeks before I finally found the perfect pink yarn! It was on sale. This is also the pattern that convinced me to invest in pom Pom makers. This hat was easy to make. It took me some time to get used to the bulky yarn but that is my fault alone.

The stuffed animal hammock in the background is a free pattern by Stitch11.
