“Oh we love snow, we love snow”(sung to the tune of Jingle bells)
I love snow for multiple reasons, but watching it fall ❄, I think that is my favorite part. This weekend we had a decent snowfall, about 6-7 inches. So I busily finished a hat that I’ve been working on to match a cowl I made. I love it.
I recently learned how to do pom poms correctly. At first, they looked like tassels, which is no good. Haha
Then I came across a beautiful cabled hat at http://www.myhobbyiscrochet.com. It is called the “go with the flow hat” if you crochet & want to try it for yourself. I learned how to cross over stitches & a yarn over slip stitch! I tried it with 2 different yarns & both turned out great!
This hat was not intended for my son, but he made a cute model.
My daughter “needed” a yellow hat to go with her yellow scarf. Don’t they look ready to go out in their pajamas? 😂
It was an easy pattern to follow (and free!) I may have to make one up for myself soon. The thicker yarn gave the hat a stiffer shape than the lighter yarn. Great weekend project.
Keep whippin it! 😄
Being a crochet artist is so much fun. I love learning new stitches & creating new whips. I recently whipped up a hooded cowl, (supposed to be for a customer, but I shamefully misplaced her info. Note: If you happen to read this please email me.) and I am working on one similar.
The other one I am whipping has more variety in color & some sparkle (of course).
It is made for an older child, so there is some extra room in the hood. My daughter was so excited to pose until she found out it was not intended for her.
If you are interested in a hooded cowl, inbox me at email@example.com. Merry hooking!
Our next craft show is just a few weeks away (Christmas in Bridgeville – Decemeber 3rd). I have a few new crocheted items that I am excited to share & display.
Mini stocking ornaments 🎄
A candy swirl beanie 🍭
And a snowman earflap beanie ⛄❄
Holly jolly hooking!
I’ve been seeing quite a lot of interesting hats in the stores lately, but none of them had that p’zazz that makes them stand out as being unique(or hand made in the great U.S. of A). I also have this fascination with sparkles… thus Smacked with a Sparkle came to be. Of course, I decided to whip up my own.
I LOVE this hat. It catches the light & makes a statement. Plus, my shadow pictures are super cool. 😸
Order yours today! Adult hats $20. Children $15. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I recently whipped up a cute infinity scarf for my daughter. Her favorite color is yellow, & she picked out the chunky Lion brand hometown USA yarn.
I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.I plan to publish the pattern soon. Happy hooking!
