Red Heart Yarns Super Saver in Oatmeal (1,090 yards–I bought 3 skeins)
Red Heart Yarns Super Saver in Coffee (120 yards)
Red Heart Yarns Super Saver in Soft White (10 yards)
Red Heart Yarns Super Saver in Perfect Pink (1 yard)
-I-5.50mm Crochet Hook (Find the hook I used in my video tutorial here!)
Polyfil (to stuff the tail)
Stitch Markers
Yarn Needle
Scissors

You can buy any of the items in this kit. Buy all or buy one item. Check it out to see the supplies you can get online to make this poncho!

NOTES:

-This project uses 1,220 yards of yarn. I am making the size Small/Medium. Keep reading to learn how to make this smaller or bigger.
-Use a smaller hook to make these smaller
-Use a bigger hook to make these bigger
-Watch the FULL video tutorial for visual instructions for each round and tips on how to make this smaller and bigger.
-Weave in all the ends as you go so you don’t have to weave them all in at the very end.
-Your starting chain should be any multiple of 5 (I start with 75, you can start with 65, 75, 85, 95), Round 2 increases 5 stitches evenly. Rounds 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 increase by 10 stitches evenly each round. If you need to increase more, you can continue with the established pattern of increases and then go onto the instructions for the front of the poncho and the back of the poncho to create the front slits.
-If you want to make this smaller, stop increasing at any round (maybe round 5 or 6 so you have about 120 sts), then go onto instructions on making the front and back of the poncho.
-TURN YOUR WORK FOR EACH ROW!!!
-If the instructions above are confusing, please message me on Facebook, and I will answer any questions you may have. Please be specific in your questions. Thank you!!
-The measurements for this poncho are as follows: Tail: 9 inches (22.86 cm), slits in the front: 10 inches around (25.4cm), Shoulder to bottom: 27 inches (68.58cm), Across shoulders: 17 inches (43.18cm), Hood length: 16 inches (40.64cm), Waist: 48 inches around (121.92cm), Hips: 50 inches around (127 cm), Pockets: 4 inches deep (10.16cm)
-Please know you can make this bigger or smaller with very few mathematical changes.

If you need to make this bigger, here is the start of the pattern for a foundation chain of 85.

Ch 85

Rnd 1: Sl st to 1st ch to form a large ring (this should fit over your head), Ch up 2 (does not count as st), DC in each ch around, sl st to first DC. Turn. (85)

Rnd 2: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 16 sts] 5 times, sl st to first DC, Turn. (90)

Rnd 3: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 8 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (100)

Rnd 4: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 9 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (110)

Rnd 5: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 10 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (120)

Rnd 6: Ch 2, [2DC in next st, 1 DC in next 11 sts] 10 times, sl st to first DC, turn. (130)

And so on.. I hope this makes sense and you are able to make this poncho. After Round 6, it is the established pattern to increase however big you need the poncho to be. Then you can go on to making the slits.

I made the One Skein Bunny!

Standard

A few years ago, I made the Caron One Pound One Skein Bunny, by Deb Richey, for my cousin. As Easter is approaching, she commissioned me to make another large bunny for her godson.

Although I did not use Caron’s One Pound Skein, I found a Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo skein to make this bunny pattern which worked just as well!


This pattern by Deb Richey is such a fun pattern to make! I forgot how adorable this bunny is! As it started to take shape, I remembered how lanky this creature is. What a fun stuffed toy for a little boy or girl during Easter!! This pattern took me a total of 10 hours to make.


Deb’s pattern is easy to follow and easy to read. In the end, it creates such an excellent piece. If you are looking for something fun to create this Easter, or any time of the year, this is a great project!  This would be lovely in a nursery, it would make a nice gift, or a fun companion for the little ones in your life. The overall size of this bunny measures 36 inches tall (92 cm).

Find all the supplies you will need below:

Have fun making this bunny in time for the holiday! I sure did!

All dogs go to heaven

Standard

I read an excerpt yesterday that said “Knowing that you will most likely out live them, owning a pet is to open yourself up to profound joy, yet prospectively profound sadness…” Although saying goodbye and letting go of our sweet girl, Bebe, was profoundly sad and difficult, the pure joy that she brought our family over the course of ten years can’t be measured in mere words. Saying that she was a good dog is a gross understatement. She was pretty much everything anyone would want in a pet.


She was loving and loyal. She loved unconditionally. No matter what kind of day I was having, it could be made better by the love of a sweet dog who had no barriers. She just aimed to please. Many tears were shed on her shoulders and she would bear the burden of my pain. Many days of dealing with illness, she was company during lonely days and nights. She was a cuddle queen.


More than anything, she was patient to a fault! She allowed me to dress her up, wore my homemade costumes and modeled them so sweetly. She made it easy to show everyone how cute she was when she got all dressed up and showed off our latest dog pattern. She was sweet that way. But she didn’t need a crocheted outfit to show off her cuteness. She was just naturally adorable!




My mom posted this a couple days ago on Facebook, and it sums up so much in just a few words:

“She was smaller than a soda can when she first arrived in our life. A birthday gift from Fuad almost 10 years ago, he wanted another dog more than me. I got two for 1, brother and sister chihuahuas, Bebe and Rueben. She was the runt of the litter, born with a heart defect, short and plump, and a face that slightly resembled a fruit bat, but her sweetness makes her the most loving creature I know. Her loyalty knows no bounds. She lives every moment ‘in the now’. I can walk out my door, forget my keys, run back inside, and she is as happy to see me as if I was gone for a week. Tail wagging, excited dancing, happy, jumping, Bebe.

Our sweet Bebe girl is on the last leg of her life. I remain forever hopeful tonight, as I sit beside her, reflecting on this amazing dog who’s life with us has been so well lived. Her time has been filled with the kind of great memories that only a best dog can provide. How lucky we are that we get to be her family and we’re the recipients of this kind of unconditional love. Even now when you call her name, she may struggle to lift her head, and there’s no excited dancing, but her ears perk up and her tail still wags.”


I hope your tail is wagging as you make your way over that rainbow bridge, sweet girl. May you find endless fields to run and lots of friends to play. I’ll miss you.

Crochet Tutorial: Owl Mask

Standard

For anyone who has a little one who loves to play dress up, this owl is so fun to expand their imagination! Just in time for Easter, these are perfect for masquerade play, character building, and pretend activities! Great for many occasions!!! The possibilities are endless! I was inspired by a link I saw on Pinterest and thought these would be fun in crochet. These would make great learning tools for kids, teaching them drama, acting, and role play! It’s great for schools, small play groups! Someone on Facebook mentioned these would be great for children’s hospitals. They are easy to wear and comfortable!


Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this Owl Mask:

Crochet Tutorial: Bunny Amigurumi in a Carrot Cocoon

Standard

This sweet little fella will hop right into your heart this season! This Bunny Amigurumi in a Carrot Cocoon is a darling project and easy enough to have done in time to make it in those baskets this Easter! For those of you who love bunnies, this is a 10 on the adorable scale!!

When I was a little girl, my maternal grandma LOVED bunnies! I remember every Easter we would go to her house and she had a basket full of bunnies. I remember playing with them! Because of her, I developed a love for stuffed bunny rabbits and it has carried into my adulthood! It has inspired me to share it with all of you!!
