Free Pattern Friday: Crochet Monster Hat

*this post contains affiliate links, marked with an asterisk(*)* It’s been cooling off the last few days, and I’m starting to think about all the lovely things that come with fall weather.  One of those things is hats, and specifically for today I’m talking adorable beanies.  This Crochet Monster Hat that Karen made for The Badenator is one of my absolute favorite hats ever. She used the Lion...

Free Pattern Friday: All-Season Baby Throw

*this post contains affiliate links, marked with an asterisk(*)* I have a thing for blankets.  I love collecting them.  And this is one of my favorites.  I asked Karen if I could have it when Goose got too big for it and she said, “absolutely not! It’s like my favorite thing ever.” So I guess I’m going to have to make my own All-Season Baby Throw. Quick note about this pattern.  It’s...

Crochet Christmas Ornaments

So I am on winter break from nursing school, and what is the first thing I want to do?  Get my craft on, of course!  I love making homemade gifts, and when I saw this idea from Little Golden Nook, I just had to recreate it.  Check out what I did! Materials: Worsted weight yarn in color(s) of choice – I used my go-to fave Lion Brand Cotton-Ease in Cherry, Seaspray, Cactus, Taupe, and Snow Metal or plastic...

CraftingCon: Mischief Managed

Back when I was just barely discovering the amazing world of blogging and sewing, I made an adorable shirt for Mackay using these tutorials: Freezer Paper Stenciling 90 Minute Shirt     And now Baden is old enough to wear it! And the cute little snitch toy I made using a free pattern off Ravelry. I can’t remember which one, sorry. I added a little jingle bell when I put in the...

Monster Beanie

My favorite things to crochet are baby gifts.  I think I have CADD (crochet attention deficit disorder, of course), because I have a hard time staying focused on large items.  Little hats and booties and such are perfect projects for me.  And what better gift for this little monster than a monster hat?  Ridiculously adorable. I mean seriously, look at him!  That Badenator is one of my favorites. The pattern is from...

Hermione Hearts Ron

I love the wonderful hand-knit clothes they wear in the Harry Potter movies. This particular hat is from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I found the pattern on Ravelry:  Hermione Hearts Ron I just had to make it!   Knitting on needles that small is a pretty slow process, but this hat was definitely worth it! Right after I’d finished my first set of the chart! Chugging along. Do you knit with...

The Owl Says…

  I love owls (feel free to blame Harry Potter) and have since I did a report on a little burrowing owl in 5th grade. I mean, how cool would it be to have a tiny owl as a pet? There are quite a few free owl patterns available on ravelry. I love both the owl softies and hats as well as the adorable little owl cable motif. I found several cute options for owl softies, but went with this pattern from Daisy Cottage...
