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…..

Happy Craftin’,

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…

Messy Bun Madness

Well it’s the weekend and I’ve got some time to post! Woo Hoo! Well the “Messy Bun” craze has not faded out! I have to say that these are just AWESOME! I’m completely hooked on Making them and pictured below are my 2 Favorite ones to make!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Grey one is called the “Katniss” Messy Bun hat inspired by the cowl worn by Katniss in the Movie “Hunger Games”.  I just absolutely LOVE the texture of this Messy Bun Beanie.  The next is the Cable Messy Bun Hat – This is also one of my favorites to make. Love how Elegant this hat looks.

These patterns are from a friend I met in a Facebook Crochet Group “Diana B” – I was lucky enough to test her patterns! She also created a Crochet Group which I’m a part of where she shares her patterns FREELY.  The name of the Group is Crochet Messy  Bun
The group is growing fast with almost 10,000 Members!  All patterns on this group are FREE.  I’ve also with her permission made some Videos for her patterns.  I have made a total of 3 – adding the 2 in the photos below. – Never thought I’d be doing videos but there was so many asking questions about the “Katniss” Beanie that thought it would be a good idea.  Thank you Diana for allowing me to share your Beautiful Creations!

Well thanks for taking the time to visit – will be back with more shares and as always,
Happy Craftin’,
