When I began crocheting, about 6 years ago, I envisioned fair isle patterns and fancy stitches. Little did I know how much involvement this new hobby would bring into my life. At the new year, my goal was to learn the center single crochet stitch (aka the waistcoat or knit look stutch). I now feel as though I have accomplished that goal and have some pretty productions to share with you. I charted out each of these hats.
I think the faux fur poms add a nice touch. This stitch is challenging. If you have not experimented with fair isle, you should.
I crocheted made my first stuffed animal creation. It is a blue bear for one of the children in my Sunday School class. It turned out super cute. My daughter has been giving it a lot of love before it leaves and also suggested the bear have a scarf.
If you haven’t tried amigurumi, you should. I love the endless possibilities with crochet crafting. 😄
I have officially mastered cables, and turned out some beautiful hats before Christmas.
This cabled bun hat was a special order from Christmas in Bridgeville.
And the beanie! I made quite a few cables bun hats & beanies via special order, they turned out to be pretty popular this year. Basic cabled bun hats are $20 & beanies are $25. Want one for yourself? Contact us!
Next step is to master the basics to fair isle stitching. 😄
Happy hooking. 💚 Rachel
I am sure you have heard this at least once, “Be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn (or Batman), then be a unicorn… (or Batman)” I have always found unicorns to be fascinating creatures. Although I doubt they are as we depicted, spreading cheer & rainbows everywhere. I imagine them to be quite fiercer, like the rhinocerous. Rawr.. don’t want to be impaled by that horn.
Anyways, the unicorn trend… I jumped on that band wagon as I was crocheting headbands this month AND even whipped up a pretty mug cozy.
Happy hooking! 🦄🌈☕
My daughter watches a movie, Free Birds, in which two turkeys travel back in time “to stop the first Thanksgiving”. It is a cute movie. So my daughter often asks if we can “pwetend to be the cwaaaaazyy turkeys”. 🦃
This year I whipped up a few Crazy Turkey hats for our Apple Scrapple festival. They turned out cute.
Then my children asked to try them on…
Then ran to look at themselves in the mirror & pulled the hats down like this…
And began to gobble & flap their arms about. (Crazy turkeys)
Crocheting my life away & wishing you a great day…
