Pattern: Heart Headband

A quick and easy heart headband pattern to make for your little ones for Valentine’s Day (or any day!) It’s really cute and also a great pattern to practice color changes! You can easily adjust this headband to fit a larger head by adding more chains in the beginning and end. I chained enough so it would fit my  9 month old daughter.

Be sure to tag me on Instagram with your headband creations! I love seeing your work!

Materials:

  • 4.25mm Crochet Hook
  • Small amount of worsted weight yarn in 2 colors. I just used your basic Super Saver  Red Heart Yarn. 
  • Yarn needle

Pattern: The Pebbles Beanie

Who else thinks of fruity pebbles when they see the Hudson Bay color from Lion brand Wool-ease yarn?? It’s not just me right? That’s how this hat got the name the Pebbles Beanie! This pattern fits the average woman’s head but is easily customizable by adding more or less rows and stitches. This beanie is made to be fitted instead of slouchy, so if you like a slouchier look be sure to add more chains in the beginning!

Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you make a Pebbles Beanie! I love seeing your creations! 🙂

Materials:

  • 8mm crochet hook

  • Super bulky yarn in 2 colors. I used Lion brand wool-ease thick and quick in Fisherman and Hudson Bay.

  • Yarn needle

Pattern: Small Heart Pillow

Valentines Day is just around the corner! I wanted something cute and simple to give to my girls and thought a little heart pillow would be perfect. This pillow is made with super bulky yarn so it works up really fast! I used Bernat Blanket Yarn…that stuff is sooo soft and cozy! Feel free to use any type of super bulky yarn you have on hand. It only uses a small amount!

Be sure to Tag me with your creations on Instagram! I love to see what you make!

Tutorial: Faux Fur PomPoms

Faux fur pompoms are super popular right now. I’ve gotten a lot of interest on how I make mine. Store bought pompoms can sometimes be hard to find and get expensive, so I put together a quick tutorial on how to make your own!

If you decide to make some be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see! I love seeing everyones creations!

Pattern: The Basic Chunky Slouch

This basic slouchy beanie is the perfect hat using super bulky yarn. It’s super easy to adjust the length and size of the hat as needed. The pattern shown will make a hat that fits the average woman’s head. If you want something slouchier add more chains in the beginning. If you want it larger, just add more rows! Simple and fast!

Be sure to follow and tag me with your finished hat on Instagram! I love seeing your work!

Materials:

  • Super bulky yarn (6) I used
    Cozy Wool Yarn by Loops & Threads
     In Sandstone. I used an entire skein and just barely had enough, so if your hat is for a Man or you want it to be bigger/slouchier be sure to get an extra skein

  • 9mm Crochet Hook

  • Yarn Needle

Pattern: Aztec Top for baby and toddler

So originally this was going to be a top for my 8 month old daughter, but when my 3 year old saw it she just HAD to try it on. It turned out to be a super cute toddler crop top AND adorable baby top all in one! My straps are a bit on the shorter side for my 3 year old so if your top is going to be a toddler I suggest making them a bit longer.

If you make a top be sure to TAG ME on Instagram so I can see! 🙂

Materials:

  • 4.25mm Crochet hook. I love using these for cotton yarn, they slide through the stitches really well.
  • Worsted weight cotton yarn. I Used Lily Sugar’n Cream. Off White, Hot Orange and Light Blue.
  • Yarn Needle

Pattern: The Sequoia Crop Top Sweater

Hello! So this is more of  just a basic run down of how I made this sweater. If I get enough interest I would be happy to make more of a detailed pattern with pictures. You can easily adjust the size and length of this sweater by just adding more or less rows and stitches. Don’t worry about being super specific with stitch counts, just be sure to make matching pieces the same size! Please leave a comment if you have any questions or need me to be more specific in certain areas!

If you complete a sweater be sure to post a picture on Instagram and Tag ME! 🙂

 

Pattern: The Jessie Beanie

The Jessie Beanie

I’ve finally started to settle into more of a routine with my youngest, who is a terrible sleeper! I’ve been able to have a lot more free time to work on my business! As some of you know I’ve been working hard on getting patterns and finished crochet products up on my Etsy Shop. I don’t want to neglect my blog and will be posting a lot more free patterns in the new year! Be sure to keep checking back and subscribe for the latest patterns and tutorials!

This is a really fun and easy hat pattern to complete, as soon as you get the stitch down you will be able to knock out a hat in an hour or two! This pattern uses bulky yarn but can easily be customizable with worsted or super bulky yarn!

Materials:

  • 8mm Crochet hook

  • Bulky yarn (5) I used less than one skein of Loops and Threads Charisma.

  • Yarn needle

  • Scrap yarn for pompom (optional)

Notes:

The main portion of the hat is first worked back and fourth in rows. You will then attach your yarn at the bottom and work in rounds to make the brim.
