FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Tiger Hat with Earflaps

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Tiger Hat with Earflaps

I could not help myself and had to jump on the Big Cat train. You never know when you will get inspired and what will lend itself to that inspo. A recent streaming docu-drama became the precipice to making my Big Cat Tiger Hat, and who better to demonstrate how adorable this hat is than Nasir?

Using the selections of yarn in my present stash (due to quarantine, I am limited to finding projects to which lend themselves to what I have because making a yarn order is off the table for the time being) I decided to construct a tiger hat using a selection of Red Heart Yarns in Hygge, With Love, Soft, and Super Saver.

Here is the step by step pattern that will walk you through this project so you can make your very own.

Due to the constraints that our present situation has put on us. I am continuing the practice of SAFER AT HOME. Therefore, am unable to film a detailed video tutorial right now. Once the mandate is lifted and I am able to travel, my dad and I hope to film this project. A detailed piece like this deserves a top notch video tutorial for everyone. In the meantime, I hope this will suffice.

Stay safe and keep crocheting!

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Large Basket using Chunky Yarn

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Large Basket using Chunky Yarn

Sometimes things don’t go the way we expect and we have to improvise. Which is exactly what I had to do for this beautiful Chunky Basket. This is my latest project for the Funky with Chunky yarn event! Using Bernat Maker Big Yarn I created this very practical, very sturdy basket that is perfect for so much around the house. Great for storage, toys, organization, towels, you name it, one or more of these baskets will come in handy and look stylish, too!! I know for my house, this basket will be great for storing either yarn or Nasir’s toys. With Easter around the corner and the ‘safer at home’ quarantine ordinance in place, this would make a great kids basket. I am sure we will get a lot of use out of this home accessory. Be sure to follow along in today’s video tutorial or written pattern to make your own. Don’t have this yarn? Use tee shirt yarn or any variation of chunky yarn that’s size 5 to create this piece.

This video was not filmed in typical YARNutopia fashion. Because of the latest mandates imposed by the Governor regarding Safer At Home policies. My parents will be unable to travel. Therefore, this was filmed by yours truly. Enjoy!

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Simple Spring Shawl

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Simple Spring Shawl

It’s nearly shawl season here in Wisconsin. That time of year between the warm days of spring and the lingering days of winter, where we need more than a t-shirt but not a big bulky winter coat to ward off the chill of the evening. It’s the perfect time for a wrap or shawl to replace the heavy jackets we have been lugging around for months. Here is my Simple Spring Shawl to help! Simple, because it is a simple stitch throughout. This shawl can be made by anyone. Beginner to Advanced, everyone will be able to enjoy this project. Spring, because it’s the time of year where having a nice soft shawl to wrap yourself in is perfect when you need to keep yourself a little cozy when the breeze blows.

I love a versatile piece, and I love how lovely this one turned out! It can be worn not only around the shoulders, but you can wrap it around your neck as a nice scarf or even around your waist like a mini sarong. You can use my basic pattern as a starting point, but feel free to adjust or add to this pattern to make it the perfect size for YOU.

This shawl makes a great gift. Not only for yourself, but for a bride or bridesmaids, friends or family, people in a nursing home who always feel a little chilled. No matter who you make it for, it is sure to be treasured and used for a long time to come.

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Wee One Baby Bonnet

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Wee One Baby Bonnet

My Wee One Bonnet is a mix of moss stitch granny squares and a few other fun stitches that works up nicely in this cute unisex bonnet! I made this one in Marly Bird’s Chic Sheep Yarn in the color VIP but don’t be limited to that! You can make this in every color of the rainbow for all the babies or Wee Ones that you know!

This little bonnet has a bit of a square shape which makes this have a little bit of a vintage appeal. Many of the old school bonnets had a similar shape and this one is a sweet one to resurrect this fun look. One of these would make a lovely addition to any layette.

This bonnet is a year round wear item, but is perfect for fitting under a hood since it has little bulk. It is also nice for springtime to protect ears from a slight breeze or chill in the air. You can’t go wrong with one of these for your little one or for a gift!

 

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this bonnet:

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Wee One Baby Bonnet

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Wee One Baby Bonnet

My Wee One Bonnet is a mix of moss stitch granny squares and a few other fun stitches that works up nicely in this cute unisex bonnet! I made this one in Marly Bird’s Chic Sheep Yarn in the color VIP but don’t be limited to that! You can make this in every color of the rainbow for all the babies or Wee Ones that you know!

This little bonnet has a bit of a square shape which makes this have a little bit of a vintage appeal. Many of the old school bonnets had a similar shape and this one is a sweet one to resurrect this fun look. One of these would make a lovely addition to any layette.

This bonnet is a year round wear item, but is perfect for fitting under a hood since it has little bulk. It is also nice for springtime to protect ears from a slight breeze or chill in the air. You can’t go wrong with one of these for your little one or for a gift!

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Sloth Lovey

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Sloth Lovey

I’m taking it “slow” this morning as I finish wrapping up our Valentine’s puns! I really enjoyed “hanging” with you these past two weeks sharing my projects. I really love it “a sloth.” Now that this series is over I can take a little time to “relax” maybe even have a cuppa “slothee.” Maybe be a little “anti-sloth-al” for a day or two and enjoy Valentine’s with this sweet boy. He will be just “hanging out” with his mama all day. I am not trying to get all “philo-sloth-ical,” but this has been a very “sloth-some” experience to really help me “move slowly” back to a regular crochet schedule. Up until recently, I have been in total “sloth-mode”. Thanks for being so “sloth-ful” and kind everybody! Enjoy the final Punny Valentine! ❤ Nadia, Nate, and Nas ❤

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Alien Puppet

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Alien Puppet

It feels like I have traveled the “universe” to find projects that are “out of this world”! I feel “over the moon” to add my One-Eyed Alien Hand Puppet to the mix! I try to be “down to earth” and find projects that appeal to all. This series has seen “galactic” popularity, but it is a big “comet-ment!” I just had to “space” them out just right. I don’t know anyone in the “galaxy” who likes puns as much as I do, so I had to “planet” out weeks in advance. The “sky is the limit” and I “moon” over the ideas for days. I do this because all of you are so “space-ial.” You think these puns are “solar-ious” and that inspires me to “meteor” expectations. I always knew it was “written in the stars” to do this and you all helped “rocket” my success. I do understand the “gravity” of this job. “Saturn” that frown upside down and enjoy today’s punny Valentine project. Disclaimer: I hope no one will “comet me” for the amount of puns in this caption that cause you to roll your eyes! Ha!

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Cow Amigurumi

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Cow Amigurumi

I feel like I am having a “Deja-Moo” from last year creating all of the corniest puns. I get so “a-moos-d” making these captions. I am trying hard to not push “pasture” tolerance of ridiculousness, but you know I am here to “bull-doze” you over with too many puns. Once I get started, it’s “udder-ly” hard to stop! I try to “beef” these up year after year, I try to “cow-culate” the best projects to deliver the best captions. It’s not easy, but if you don’t like them, I try not to cry over spilled “milk” and “moooo-ve” onto the next! I think this little cow is going to be “legen-dairy.” All I know is with this project, the “steaks” have been raised! “Holy Cow” I think you have “herd” enough.

It’s *snow* laughing matter! That’s why the patterns keep coming and today I am *s-mitten* with these mittens! The latest Alpine Stitch Mittens are ready for your hooks and the slopes!
