Crochet Tutorial: Houndstooth Stocking Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Houndstooth Stocking Hat

Who doesn’t love the drama of a great hat? It is the finishing touch to an outfit. The proverbial “cherry on top.” Each hat we wear makes a statement. Why not make that statement with a fun Houndstooth Stocking Hat this year? Picture everyone in their holiday pajamas and each head capped with one of these great pieces! I see next year’s Christmas card just waiting to be made with that scene in mind! A comfy cap that is sure to please everyone. Warm, fun, whimsical, and perfect for the whole family! This hat is a “Done in a Day” easy project. Add a yarn or faux fur pom to complete this look!!

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this hat:

Shop Red Heart, America's Favorite Yarn

NOTES:
-This took me approximately 12 Hours total to make this piece.
-To make this smaller or bigger, use a smaller or bigger hook size.
-You can chain more or less on your foundation chain, there is no multiple in this project.
-MEASURE: From your navel to your side for the measurement of your panel. (See video tutorial intro for more details on how to make this bigger)
-The one I show in the video tutorial will fit a size Medium person and measures 48 Inches around and 25 inches long. You can watch the video tutorial to learn how to make this longer and wider. It is supposed to fit loosely around the body.
-The Ch 1 at the beginning of the row DOES NOT count as a stitch.
-One panel measures 12 inches wide and 48 inches long, but you can make yours as wide and long as you want it to be by just chaining more in your foundation row and continuing rows to make this longer.

Crochet Tutorial: Bows and Bells Napkin Rings

Our first crochet project in the 12 Days of Christmas, starts with this Bows and Bells Napkin Rings! This project takes a common household item and transforms it to make these lovely tabletop decorations.

bowsandbellsnapkinring
bowsandbellsnapkinring2  bowsandbellsnapkinring3
bowsandbellsnapkinring4

These napkin rings use an every day household item that usually gets tossed in the trash or recycled. This project is a great way to reduce waste and reuse your tissue paper rolls!

bowsandbellsnapkinring7

While I was experimenting and playing around with the napkin ring, I noticed a flame-less tea-light candle fit inside the ring perfectly! ((Disclaimer: DO NOT USE OR LIGHT A REAL CANDLE WITH THIS PIECE)) Sitting on the side of a shelf, this looks very festive!

Crochet Tutorial: Frosty Flakes Granny Square

Crochet Tutorial: Frosty Flakes Granny Square

I created this Frosty Flakes Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting design! I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

Crochet Tutorial: Beast Costume Gloves

As I make progress on the costumes that I am designing for Nate and myself for Halloween, I was puzzled over how to make a pair of Beast Mitts. I pooled over ideas of what would work, what would be comfortable for an evening of partying with our friends, what would look like a pair of paws with claws? All these questions are answered in this pair of open finger gloves.

beast3

These mitts are not meant for freezing temperature days. Just by appearance, it’s obvious why. These are strictly for costume purpose. However, but omitting the finger/claws you would have a basic pair of fingerless gloves or hand warmers.

I used Red Heart Boutique Fur to cover these paws. You are free to use creative choices for the type of fur you would like to use. You can create a different look by using different types of furs.

The pattern can be adjusted for any size hand. In my video, I created this pair to fit a larger sized man-hand. With easy math, you can make this pattern from child size to an XL hand size. Have fun with this costume/prop accessory. It is perfect for so many designs – wildcats, bears, lions, werewolves, beasts, monsters, etc.

beast4

Here is the link to the hat which was the first part of this costume.

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make these Beast Costume Gloves:

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: 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: Cat Paw Hand Warmers with Fur

Bring out your inner “cat-titude” and freak “meowt!” This is the “purrrr-fect” project to make that happen! I am “paws-itive” you will be “feline” “claw-some!!”

As I work my way toward Halloween and my own personal costume, I created these paw fingerless gloves as a piece to one of my best costumes yet! This time of the year always gets my creativity going for fun ideas on ways to economically make a costume with as little as a hook and yarn. Although I made these as part of my Halloween attire, this would be a great project for any animal lover. You can modify these in many ways by changing the color, paw pads and fur! You don’t even need to put the paw prints on them and just have fancy fingerless gloves to give as a gift for anyone on your list!

Again, this is a quick and easy afternoon project! This blog includes the instructional video as well as a handwritten pattern. Be sure to check out the entire blog and make your mitts today!

I’m sure that you will “a-purrr-ove” of “e-furry-thing!” HA!
