Crochet Tutorial: Something Blue Cowl

Crochet Tutorial: Something Blue Cowl

A late season snowstorm swept in overnight just in time for the release of my Something Blue Cowl. Wear it with attitude and rock that winter look no matter what time of the season! You can make this piece as a scarf with fringe or make it a mobius cowl by twisting the scarf before sewing it closed. Have fun with this design and stay warm out there!

Crochet Tutorial: The Fur Chapeau

Crochet Tutorial: The Fur Chapeau

I returned from vacation, and I’m right back to work in the studio with the latest hat design I just created. My Fur Chapeau is inspired by my trip to Paris! Perfect for the windy weather and to keep the chills away!!

It was a little chilly in Europe, and when I returned, there were heavy winds, and it was cold in Wisconsin. Although spring is around the corner, this hat can keep the cold away any time of year. In other parts of the world, it will be winter soon, so it will be perfect for any time, any place to warm you up!

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this Fur Chapeau:

Crochet Tutorial: One Skein Beret

With the change in seasons, it always gets me excited to try new winter projects. Although today is August 25th, 2015, the temperatures in the past few days were autumn-like here in Wisconsin, USA. The kind of weather where you feel the need to grab a jacket on your way out the door or wrap up on the couch in a warm afghan. I found this pattern by Lion Brand Yarns. It’s for a tam/beret. It appeared to be something I would enjoy making in a quick sitting, and it didn’t disappoint!

One Skein Beret

In less than 2 hours I was able to make this cute chunky yarn tam. After completing the beret, there are a few things I would have changed. One would be the size, I made it a hair too small. I would adjust the hook size and use a 10.00mm hook (which the pattern calls for) instead of the 9.00mm hook I used. I also would have widened the brim band that fits around my forehead maybe making 16 or 18 rounds instead of the 14 that the pattern calls for. That is just my own personal preference to this pattern. Overall, I am very pleased with how this turned out. It is your classic tam beret, and it is extremely fashionable for the upcoming cooler weather.

To view the written pattern, visit Lion Brand’s website or click here. You need to register and have an account with them to view the pattern.

Follow along with this video tutorial to make your own beret.
