Crochet Tutorial: Bunny Ear Headband

Crochet Tutorial: Bunny Ear Headband

I’ve traded in my wedding veil for a pair of rabbit ears just in time for Easter!! My Bunny Ear headband is inspired by the Snapchat filters we love to share! Now you can make your very own! This jeweled accessory is perfect for kids and adults alike. Kids love to dress up and these work perfectly for cosplay! Bendable and pose-able ears give you lots of options for holidays and for fun!

 

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.

Crochet Tutorial: Link to the Past Stocking Cap

Crochet Tutorial: Link to the Past Stocking Cap

As many of you may recall, each year I design, create, and model an EPIC cosplay costume ensemble for Halloween. If you have been following my blog, you remember 2 years ago my Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter Costumes here or last year, The Beauty and The Beast costumes here.

Each year I try to challenge myself to something new. I began my 2017 costumes over the weekend and will release pieces over the next few months just in time for Halloween. Each video tutorial and written pattern will be FREE, and although many patterns will be related to the costume ensemble, several will be great to create on their own!!

One such piece is this Link to Past Stocking Cap. This unique Phrygian Cap is the first in a series of several videos that will be made to complete our costumes as Link and Zelda!! For those who are on my social media, it didn’t take long for the guesses to come in and easily many of you knew immediately what I was in the process of creating.

This design is very versatile. If you are not a fan of the video game or gaming scene, this can be made in any color as just a stocking hat in time for cooler weather. You can even use two tones by making your reverse single crochet stitches in a complimentary color to the hat. Red and White would make a peppermint swirl, or Red and Green would make a cute holiday hat. Removing the side laces and adding a bell on the end of the conical shape would make a darling elfin hat!

There are many fun ways to explore broadening this pattern to other great creations! For those of you who are on board to see what I create for Halloween, stay tuned for the next several weeks as I reveal more pieces for this EPIC cosplay creation. Nate and I are very excited to share another great costume with our wonderful YARNutopia community!

Crochet Tutorial: Let Your Buns Out Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Let Your Buns Out Hat

You asked and I answered. I’ve decided to join the group of designers who have been trending this hot item. I made my own version of the messy bun hat! Here’s the “Let Your Buns Out Hat!” Show love to my momma for being my messy bun hat model! Yes, that’s MY MOM! I typically model my finished items, but I cover my hair so I was lucky enough to have my mom model my item for me.

letyourbunsout

letyourbunsout2
I went ice skating and saw someone wear a hat that was not crocheted, but it had different textures and sections with a brim. That was my inspiration for this design. I created 3 sections, each with different stitching, I crocheted around a hair tie elastic to make an opening for a messy bun. This whole project took me 2 hours to complete. The notes section below shares information on how to make different sizes.

Crochet Tutorial: Sugar Skull Ski Mask

This Halloween season I’ve been seeing a lot of these Sugar Skulls on display, and they are seemingly becoming more and more popular.

The Sugar Skull originates from a tradition born in Mexico. Skulls are decorated in bright colors and would be filled with chocolate candy or other sugary treats. This is a symbol of life, taking something that is commonly associated with death, decorating it with beautiful accents. Thus giving it a new lease on life, such as life after death. It’s a celebration commemorating Dia De Los Muertos.

Sugar Skull
This is my crocheted version of the Sugar Skull. Feel free to get as creative and decorative because everyone is different and there is such a great variety in this art! Enjoy the free pattern at the end of this blog to make different sizes! The video tutorial shows size LARGE ADULT.

Crochet Tutorial: Slouchy Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Slouchy Hat

As many of you have seen, I cover my hair. When I go out for a quick run to the grocery store, I’ll throw on a beanie really fast and run out the door! My go-to hats are these super slouchy ones. Today’s video is on how to make one of these great projects.

When I’m out and about wearing this hat, I get so many compliments and people ask me where I got it. I love to tell them I made it myself, and you will too!

Whenever I have made my version of this hat, I always use yarn that has very vibrant colors and different variations of jewel tones. This example in today’s blog uses Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn in the Stained Glass color.

Slouchy Hat
This super slouchy multicolored beanie can be worked up in an afternoon! I promise, you will get years of wear out of each hat you make! They make great gifts, not just to yourself, haha, but to others!

At the very end of the video tutorial, I explain how to make it smaller for child sizes. The written pattern is for a teen/adult sized hat.
Keep Calm
You could add your own embellishments by adding buttons, a bow, or any other fashionable item to make it your own!

Follow along with this video to learn how to make this slouchy hat.
