Happy Halloween 2020

Happy Halloween 2020

We had such a fantastic Halloween, and I wanted to share all of our costume pieces in one blog post.  Below you will see each piece that I crocheted and links to their crochet patterns. Simply click the image or the title of each pattern to go to its pattern.

Here is our little Bee Family Photo!

 

 

 

For my Bee Hive costume, I made one large spiral using Lion Brand Basic Stitch yarn.
I do not have a crochet pattern for this, however, at the very bottom of this blog post, I will share a mini “recipe” of how I created this beehive.

 

I added mini Felt Bees that I purchased on Amazon. You can get them here.

 

 

 

For Nate’s costume, I purchased a Bee Keeper Outfit on Amazon. You can find it here.

I also used some Tulle from the fabric shop and added it to the Honey Bee Sunhat that I made for his costume. I added the same Felt Bees to his hat with floral wire.

 

 

On Nasir’s Costume, I share all the components of his costume in this blog post here. I made the wings out of Nylons and coat hangers. I have a FREE crochet pattern and video tutorial for his whole outfit. It’s called the Baby Bee Costume and you can find it here.

 

 

This Baby Bee was *SO* done after our photo shoot!

Thank you for another fabulous year of costumes!

Happy Halloween!!

 

 

 

Below you will find information about the Large Bee Hive costume that I am wearing:

 

For the body and hat:
Work in continuous rounds
Ch 35
HDC in 1st Ch to form a ring, and in the next 23 chs, SC in last 11 chs.
Then I just HDC’d in each HDC st and SC’d in each SC st until it formed a spiral. I stuffed this tube as I went.

I did the same exact thing for my hat. I made 4 spirals for the body and 3 spirals for the hat.
I sewed the beginning and end of the tube and sewed it together in the shape of a beehive.

For the straps, I just did a row of 50 double crochet stitches to make a basic strap and sewed it in on the inside of the bee hive.

I hope this gives you a good idea of how I made the bee hive. If you are interested in making it and have questions, feel free to email me (nadia@yarnutopia.com) and I can help you as best as I can!!

Enjoy!

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Sign of The Times Beanie Hat

LIMITED TIME ONLY! Get this FREE PDF Digital Download for the LEAP INTO FALL EVENT Hosted By Nicki’s Homemade Crafts HERE!!
(Or click the image below to save the pattern)

This is the Sign Of The Times Hat and like the name, it really is indicative of the times we are living in.
As we approach colder weather in the northern hemisphere, we will not only have to deal with the cold and wind, but also the season of colds and flu. We are already doing everything to combat Covid-19 by social distancing and wearing masks, washing our hands, and not touching surfaces. My new hat design comes with buttons to accommodate a face-mask and then an attachment to cover the face-mask underneath.

We all want to enjoy the outdoors and with so much ahead of us-sport events, holidays, and other situations where we may be near others, this hat is the perfect way to accommodate a face-mask while battling the elements!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos even if we don’t live together.

Assembly Step:

Sew a button on each side of the hat near the ears so the mask can be buttoned on. I sewed my buttons on the inside of the hat but you can sew them on the outside if you’d like. I liked the idea of flipping the hat brim up and having the buttons exposed if I wanted them to be. Otherwise they are hidden inside and your mask can attach to the inside buttons.

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Offbeat Baby Cardigan

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Offbeat Baby Cardigan

Before you know it, sweater weather will be upon us here in the northern hemisphere. I know it is hard to think about it on a balmy summer day, but as we have learned in previous years, time flies. Why not get ahead of the season with some awesome baby wear? I made this Offbeat Baby Cardigan for Nasir, and it turned out so sweet!! Even though it is way too hot to be dressed in this sweater today, my sweet boy still modeled it like a champ!

Using an eclectic mix of thick and thin striping, this mismatched pattern makes a striking cardigan that is a compliment to any baby wardrobe. I made this one using Brava Yarn by WeCrochet (KnitPicks) in the colors Asphalt Heather and Denim. This combo works so nicely for Nas, but it can be done in any combination of color. And don’t worry if the stripes throw you off, you can follow along without changing colors and make this solid or use only the elements you like to make it your own. Be sure to share your photos with me when you finish!!

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

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Offbeat Baby Cardigan

Before you know it, sweater weather will be upon us here in the northern hemisphere. I know it is hard to think about it on a balmy summer day, but as we have learned in previous years, time flies. Why not get ahead of the season with some awesome baby wear? I made this Offbeat Baby Cardigan for Nasir, and it turned out so sweet!! Even though it is way too hot to be dressed in this sweater today, my sweet boy still modeled it like a champ!

Using an eclectic mix of thick and thin striping, this mismatched pattern makes a striking cardigan that is a compliment to any baby wardrobe. I made this one using Brava Yarn by WeCrochet (KnitPicks) in the colors Asphalt Heather and Denim. This combo works so nicely for Nas, but it can be done in any combination of color. And don’t worry if the stripes throw you off, you can follow along without changing colors and make this solid or use only the elements you like to make it your own. Be sure to share your photos with me when you finish!!


My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos even if we don’t live together.

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: 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 ❤

 

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

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Family Fair Isle Hat

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Family Fair Isle Hat

Introducing my Family Fair Isle Hat. This is a fun pattern for everyone! OOOH Yeah! This is the perfect hat for the season, for the family, for ANYONE on your gift giving list-and don’t forget to make one for yourself! I have provided you the pattern to make one in several sizes-baby, youth, teen/adult, XL adult, and I took the guess-work out of this pattern for you. In our family photos, I have done a variation on the color scheme in each hat using the beautiful colors provided by Marly Bird’s Chic Sheep yarn. Find the selection of colors here! You can find the perfect combination for everyone.

One of the loveliest things about this pattern is the versatility. Not only can you make it in any size, you can use a yarn pom, no pom,or a furry pom found here. You can keep the earflaps or make it a simple beanie or ski hat and leave them off. You can put braids or tassels on the earflaps – MAKE IT YOUR OWN! But, if you do, be sure to share those photos on my Facebook page, tag me on Instagram, or Snapchat me your pics! I can’t wait to see what you do.

If you are giving a handmade gift this hat alone or paired with a matching set of my Fair Isle Knee High Socks would make anyone delighted to find these under the tree. Be sure to check out my knee high socks here and get started on these great patterns today!
