Crochet Tutorial: The Enchantress Bonnet

Crochet Tutorial: The Enchantress Bonnet

Most of you know that I get inspiration from a variety of ways when creating my pieces. “The Enchantress Bonnet” is no exception. It reminds me of the enchantress from ancient literature or from a character in a fairy-tale.

Enchantress Bonnet
Recently, I started binge watching the series “Once Upon A Time” on Netflix. This series is a drama series that brings fairytales to life and intertwines characters from stories I remember as a child. I’m totally addicted to this show! I’ve noticed that I adore the costumes worn by the characters. I had seen a hood design and I fell in love with it. I love the texture from the crocodile stitch combined with the front post and back post half-double crochet. It looks very detailed and complex.  
Enchantress Bonnet
“Bring out the hidden enchantress inside of you! The magnificent, confident, hauntingly beautiful, multifaceted you!!”

Crochet Tutorial: Cheshire Cat Hoodie

Crochet Tutorial: Cheshire Cat Hoodie

As winter approaches, the need to bundle up becomes more prevalent. From top to bottom, we pile on layers to keep ourselves from the bitter cold. Although I made this particular hood for my costume this Halloween, once made, I realized how warm this actually is (since I wore it all night long).

Cheshire Cat
Many of my blog followers on Facebook and Instagram inquired about me making a video tutorial for this project. It occurred to me that this would be perfect for the season as winter apparel. It offers a very stylish option, and it is very different than your average winter hat or scarf.

Cheshire Cat


This is a cat hoodie of course, however, it is also very versatile. You do not have to put on the ears, or you can replace the ears with bear ears or fox ears. Custom make this to any animal of your choice! The creativity that is in this project knows no bounds! You could take it to a different level and line the face with fur around row 1. I’m sure you will find this to be a very fun and easy project. These make great gifts, and they are incredibly warm to wear!

Cheshire Cat
When I was looking up inspiration online for the Cheshire Cat, I came across this photo. I could NOT find a pattern, but knew I could make one myself. This photo served as the inspiration to the hood I made. The original designer for this hood shown below is Archaical. You can find her work here on here website or here on her Facebook.

Inspiration
Below are some more photos from this Halloween. You can see Nate and my full length costumes as well as a close-up. I tried to pay attention to the details in creating both ensembles to emulate the characters from Alice in Wonderland.

Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter
If you are interested in making the full costume, You can find the Leg Warmers pattern here. You can find the Hand warmer Paws Pattern here. You can find the Cheshire Cat Tail pattern here. And you can find the Top Hat that Nate is wearing right here! Enjoy!
