Pattern: Spring Beanie and Headband

I made Evie a new headband the other night using Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton Yarn! It is SO soft and one of my favorite yarns to work with. I had plenty of yarn leftover so I decided to make Penelope a matching beanie to go with it! The color I chose is very springy and the light-weight cotton is perfect for the current weather! My favorite part is that I was able to make both the headband and beanie for less than one skein of yarn. Both patterns are very simple and beginner friendly.

Materials:

  • Worsted weight cotton yarn. I used One skein of Hobby Lobbys I love This Cotton! in Pastel.
  • 4.00mm Crochet Hook
  • Yarn needle

Pattern: Sun Bum Tote

Yay! Finally a new pattern to post! I never realized before I started designing my own crochet how much work goes into pattern writing! First there is the idea stage, then the yarn buying stage (my favorite), then the making and frogging and re-doing stage, all while scribbling notes down so I don’t forget what I did. When you finally have the finished product.. Bam!! Now you have to type up the pattern, find testers, send to testers, wait for your testers to give you feedback. Edit the pattern, take pretty pictures, post on Instagram AND still have to make a listing on Etsy. PHEW! I’m so amazed at all the support I get for my patterns and I love to be able to give back. I hope you like my newest pattern The Sun Bum Tote!

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram if you make the Sun Bum Tote! I love seeing your finished work! You are always welcome to sell your finished work with ANY of my patterns, but please link back to my shop/blog for credit! 🙂

Materials: 

  • Worsted Weight Yarn, approximately 270 Yards. I used less than 2 skeins of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton in Ivory. You will also need a small amount of colored yarn for the trim and handles.
  • 3.00mm crochet hook
  • Yarn Needle

Pattern: Fuzzy Bunny Ears Headband

I’ve had this fur yarn in my stash for a while now and could never decide what to do with it. My 3 year old recently asked for a pair of bunny ears to wear after seeing all the Easter stuff in stores and it clicked! I whipped these Fuzzy Bunny Ears up during my youngest daughters afternoon nap, they are that quick! The fur is so soft and fluffy and the flowers just scream spring to me. I hope you guys enjoy this pattern!

Materials:

  • Redheart Boutique Fur Yarn from JoAnn Fabrics. Less than one skein.
  • Small amount of bulky (5) white yarn. I used Buttercream Angel hair from JoAnn.
  • Colorful scrap yarn for the flowers. I used I Love This Cotton! From Hobby Lobby.
  • A headband
  • Yarn needle
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • N/9.00mm Crochet hook

Pattern: Sarah Crop Top

My sister recently asked for a ribbed crop top and this is what I came up with! Now this is more of a guide/how to instead of a specific stitch count pattern. You can basically use this as a guideline to make your own top! It’s really easy and as long as you continue to try it on as you go and check your size it should come out great! I used the new Sugarspun yarn by Loops & Threads. I know this yarn isn’t available everywhere yet but you can use any light weight yarn. Im sure worsted weight would work just as well! I plan on making another one using a soft cotton yarn for a more summertime feel! 🙂 Remember you can always leave a comment or send me a DM on Instagram if you need any help or have questions!

Materials:

  • 3.00mm crochet hook
  • 4.00mm crochet hook
  • Light (3) Weight yarn in 2 colors. (less than one skein each.) I used Loops & Threads Sugarspun Yarn.
  • Yarn needle

Pattern: Chubby Bunny Amigurumi

Easter is just around the corner, so I decided to make a quick bunny! He ended up being a chubby little guy hence the name, Chubby Bunny 🙂 I LOVE the Angel Hair yarn used to make this bunny. It’s the same yarn I use to make this adorable lamb hat.  Super soft and fluffy, if you haven’t tried it, you need to!

Pattern: Cozy Slipper Socks

I love slippers and always seem to be buying cute pairs when I make target runs, ordering them from amazon and I always seem to be browsing for the latest MukLuks. My 2 year old pup recently stole one of my favorite pairs and proceeded to destroy them in the backyard. Sigh… he’s lucky he’s cute. Which leads me to making and writing up this pattern for Cozy Slipper Socks to add to my collection. 🙂

This pattern will fit and average sized adult female foot. I am a size 8 and made it to fit me perfectly. If you want a smaller or bigger pair just add more rows where indicated. Don’t be afraid to play around with the sizing!

Materials:

Pattern: Granny Square Crop Top

I’ve never liked the cold and only enjoy snow during the holidays, so I can not wait for summer! I decided to make a crop top and of course had to add some colorful granny squares. This pattern is pretty simple. If you can make a granny square and know how to single crochet, then you can make this top!

Materials:

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!
