Messy bun/ ponytail beanie

final-collage

A ‘new’ crochet trend is making its way around the internet this week.  The concept has been around for a while but really took off this week.  A standard beanie with a hole at the top to allow for a ponytail or a bun to peak through.  I have made two different types.  One option uses bulky yarn (5 ply), the second option uses standard red heart super saver (4 ply).  Both patterns below are for a standard adult hat approx 20in circumference.  I hope you find the patterns helpful!  Please leave a comment if you have any questions!  Thanks!

1/2 skein of bulky yarn 5ply (serenity charisma shown)

Easter Egg Buddies-Bunny & Duck

A new pattern is available in the Egg Buddies Collection!  A bunny and a duck are now available for your crocheting pleasure.  My children saw the duck and couldn’t decide whether he was a chick or a duck and have thus named him Chuck!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  https://www.etsy.com/listing/270430386/easter-egg-buddies-bunny-chick-crochet?ref=shop_home_active_1

Double layered braided cowl

This cowl is all over the crochet world.  Fiber artists either have it on their to-do, already made, or I’m so done lists.  The pattern is simple enough that a beginner could work it up.  The cowl uses simple stitches of single and half double crochet.  Please follow the link below to see the original work and pattern for yourself!  You won’t be disappointed.  fleck pic.jpghttp://www.myhobbyiscrochet.com/2016/01/double-layered-braided-cowl-free.html

Temperature Blanket

I am working on a year long project for myself. This is a temperature blanket. Temperature blankets typically use a rainbow of colors for the range of temperatures. Normally red for hotter days and blue for colder days and other colors in between. Each day you typically add a row based on the day’s temp. I am personalizing my blanket by using natural tones and information from 2014 (our 10 year wedding anniversary). Also I am having 56 stitches represent a day.  Each week will cover 4 rows.  By using a past year I have all the information I need and can work on a the blanket a few days at a time at my leisure. If this blanket works out well I may make one for each of the kids using their birth years for reference and letting them pick the colors. Are you planning any long term projects? Photos show my color choices and progress up to day 60. I will try to post pictures each 50 days of progress.day 60.jpg
