New Crochet Bella Rose Hat

Hello All! Just wanted to share this New Hat Design by my friend Diana called the “Bella Rose”. It’s a great pattern and very versatile! It’s a closed hat or you can open it at the top and put your hair up in a “Messy Bun” also. If you hair is thick or thin it really doesn’t matter as the opening is big enough and the ties will close up to the size you need! I think this is just brilliant!  I made a video for this and am posting it here!  What do you think? I LOVE this color! It’s Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn in Gold. But looks like a Mustard Color! I just LOVE the Design on this Hat!

Time to get your Jolly on….

How adorable are these Santa Hats?  Super FUN and Perfect for the Holidays!  That’s right it’s that time to get your Jolly on!

This pattern was shared on a Facebook Group by Sarah Zimmerman from Repeat Crafter Me.  You can find the pattern HERE.

UPDATED: I used Clover Amour L Hook – (Amazon Affiliate Link)
I did modify it to fit a Teen/Adult hat. Here is what I did -With the L Hook I started with a chain of 44 and that measured 20″ –  I switched to M Hook when it changes to Red. After round 3. Then after 4th round it says to Repeat it 4 more times – I ended up doing 8 more times for Adult size. Giving me a total of 12 rows –
Then when we get to the Shape top: This is what I did (You’ll see in the pattern is says next rnd: I changed it up)
R1 – ch1 *(Sc2tog), sc in next 20, repeat* once, join, ch 1 (42)
R2-3 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (41)
R4 – (sc in next 5, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (36)
R5-6 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (36)
R7 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (30)
R8-9 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (30)
R10 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (25)
R11-12 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (25)
R13 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (20)
R14-15 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (20)
R16 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (16)
R17-18 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (16)
R19 – (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (12)
R20-21 – sc in each around, join, ch 1 – (12)
R22 –  (sc in next 4, sc2tog), repeat () around, join, ch1 (10)
R 23-32 – sc in each around (10) From here you’ll follow the pattern Even though you’ll have 20 stitches instead of 16. It will still work out fine!

Crocheted Gingerbread Boy & Girl Beanies

Well Thanksgiving is over and it’s full Christmas mode now!  Hope you had a wonder Thanksgiving!  Didn’t mean to be MIA for this long but have been busy with orders and just been a making machine adding more goodies to the store where I’ve got my items in.  Which I’m extremely grateful for.  The Gift Boutique & Home Decor (next to Levis) in San Clemente Outlet Mall is where my items are located. OF course in my Etsy Shop as well!  All of my Baby Hats sold out!  Super excited about that!  Here’s what’s going in this week!

Seriously, doesn’t this just put a smile on your face!  I’ll show you a little later what else has been on my hook.

A New Design “Just Chillin” Beanie

Seriously, not sure what’s gotten into me. I’m no Designer but these just keep coming! Totally inspired by ALL the AWESOME talent out there!  So here is my latest “Just Chillin'” Beanie! It’s so laid back and it’s got that slight Slouch to it and of course a POM POM!  I’ve got a video in the works and will post it as soon as it’s loaded.

But for now here is the Free PDF pattern – Just Chillin Slouchy
As I said I’m not a Designer by any means and this was made to fit a Teen/Adult I’m sure you can do any size just by measuring the length of the band.  I’ll try and experiment with different sizes later OR if you have any ideas leave me a comment!  Questions about the pattern let me know this too!

Well Grandson is here so I’m off! Thanks for stopping by and as always…..

The BoHo Messy Bun Beanie

So as promised here is my new Messy Bun Hat Design! So this is very rare that I create a Design I normally test patterns for others! LOL! But here they are straight from my brain and inspired by so many hats I’ve seen!  Super warm and cozy.

I’m calling this The “BoHo Messy Bun Beanie”.  Which was inspired by a member of a FB Group I’m in. I originally thought “Bohemian” but was like hmmm. I thought BoHo then as I saw a comment on my post suggesting the same name! Great minds think alike right?  Anyway I’m working on a video for this hat. Hopefully this week! It’s super easy and FUN to make!

This one I used Red Heart with Love yarn #4 worsted in color Mango! Doesn’t it just POP!  You can’t tell from the photo but it’s super squishy!  I’m just in love with this look.  It’s got that casual but also Elegant look about it.  I’m thinking I see a matching scarf to go with maybe?  Oh yes I see it and Infinity style?  Hmmmmm…..sounds like another Design pattern in the making!

If you are interested in purchasing a Beanie these will be in my Etsy soon. If you are a fellow crocheter you can download your copy here! BoHo Messy Bun Beanie If you have any questions about the pattern or you find mistakes please let me know. Once you get the hang of it they are pretty fast to make.  As mentioned above I’ll be doing a video soon so if you want to see the video (some of us are visual – I LOVE videos) then subscribe to me on YouTube so you know when I load the video.  The link is up above on the right.

Lastly, here is a Messy Bun version which is in the pattern.  I mean you can’t make a hat now a days without it being a Messy Bun too right?  This one uses Red Heart Essentials  yarn!

Stay tuned for the next one I’m going to share it’s another one that was in my brain.  I will be sharing this a little later today so come back and check it out!

Thanks for stopping by & as always…

Teddy Bears in the house

Seriously, How adorable are these Teddy Bears???!!! After making the 1st one I had enough yarn over to make the 2nd one! Not bad for 1 ball of Caron Sprinkle Cake! Which is a brand new line of yarn. Love this in Birthday Cake color and it’s self striping so you don’t know what color will be next. So in LOVE with how they came out.  I’ll for sure be adding these to my Etsy shop also! Thanks again to Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me for a GREAT Project!

If you are in the San Clemente area I’ll be adding them there too!  Of course went into work at Michaels last night and picked up some more. I got a new color too! I’ll show you that one a little later! Now to get ready for my Sons Baseball Tournament in San Clemente this weekend! I’m for sure packing my yarn! Let’s see what I get done!  Have a great weekend and until next time…..
