Headband with Buttons

This headband should’ve been a slouchy hat which pattern I found on M.I.L.C.H. Schaum blog. The pattern is written in two languages: Swedish and English. One day I will make a hat too, that’s how easy and beautiful it is. 

This time I ended up with a headband because I was in a hurry to make my last Christmas present and send it to the future owner. Actually, when I finally heard from them about it, they said that she was looking for one to buy. Yay! It’s mind blowing, how you can guess things like that. I was very happy about it. I especially was happy about the sizing: it fit! If you are a beginner at crocheting you know what I mean. You are always worried about the clothing size, and it’s a great relief when you finally manage to do it right. I’m dancing a little winner’s dance right now 😀

If you decide to make it be sure to measure your head. I just made a chain and put it on my head to see if it ‘s long enough. Sad we don’t have a person by our side every time we make something like that, but it helps if they tell you their head’s measurements. As you can guess, I made it just before Christmas, therefore, I can’t really remember how many times I’ve chained. I know I’ve written it somewhere but couldn’t find my little note anywhere (believe me, I have tons of notes). Also, keep in mind that it depends on your yarn and hook size as well. Nevertheless, I don’t think you will fail, it’s just too easy. I also chose to follow only the first part of her pattern. I did it 8 times. When I was done with my headband I chose big blue buttons and sewed them on the side. Doesn’t it look cute?

It should be warm and nice to wear, and very stylish as well.

Brain Waves Beanie

Hello,

I’m so happy to finally write this post (I’ve been waiting for it for two months). I made this beanie for my good friend as a birthday present. It got a little bit too small, but he reassured that “it’s still possible to wear it”. I used the pattern by Liz McQueen. Thank you for your work and sharing this lovely pattern with us. 🙂

Here is my result (my model is my hubby, his head is a little bit bigger than my friends):

If you like it, give it a try and make one to your beloved ones or  just anyone you know. They will be very glad about it 😉 

Moss Stitch Infinity Scarf

Hello! 

It was a really long time since I posted something new on my blog. Well, in my defend we’ve been busy with moving, our old apartment looked like a storage room for at least 2 weeks, and I had no mood to crochet in that environment. After we moved I started preparing for Christmas (yes, my project which I’m done with yet), and only today I managed to finish and send my last Christmas presents. I’m happy it’s done, and my biggest promise for myself to start preparing for the next Christmas straight after the New Year so I’m sure I have enough time to make everything. But, let’s get back to the scarf I’m going to post today.

My wonderful friend Rita had her birthday in November and I decided to make her a handmade present (what a surprise, yes?). It took me some time to figure out what should I make. Luckily, I know what she likes – stylish clothes, but very simple at the same time. I started searching for a beautiful crochet stitch pattern which should turn into a warm winter scarf. The I came up by the moss stitch on Ambassador Crochet. Thank you for the pattern it turned out to be a nice scarf.

I used 100% wool and it turned out to be a little bit heavy, but it should look great on my little friend. Can’t wait to see some pictures of her wearing this wonderful infinity scarf (hint, hint!).

Write to you very soon! Can’t wait to share all my Christmas decorations I managed to make.

Snowman Hats

Hello!

It seems like just yesterday I posted my last post. But it’s almost a month ago. Shame on me! Therefore, I’m hurrying to post my new work just, just out of  the “oven” but already heating two little ladies. 

I know it’s not winter time yet but it’s never too early to get ready for the cold weather, yes? On this note, I’m posting two lovely, cute snowman hats which were made for two great girls: one whom just yesterday turned 1 year! Congratulations, Leia!!! Maya, her cousin, is a bit older. Can’t wait to see the pictures of them wearing these hats. 

I found a pattern on my very favorite blog of Sarah, Repeat Crafter Me. Thank you! No one can thank you enough for those great patterns you are sharing with us!!!

Here is my result. I did crochet the nose bit differently, as I used thin cotton (it had to be a lot bigger), and I also changed the place of the hat because it looked better that way. 🙂 I also wanted to change the look of pom poms. To make them more fluffy I just used a comb and brushed it for quite a while. Now they are very soft and light to touch. On the other hand, I still need to work on their shape. 

Here how it looks on a little birthday lady. Isn’t she cute?

Star Blanket

Hello!

Star Blanket

Today I finished one of my projects-in-a-queue – a baby star blanket. I’m so proud of myself. Another little blanket finished. You probably are thinking “big deal, I’ve done it before”, and you are right, it’s not difficult. It’s just that I’m having problems with finishing big projects (and it is a BIG project for me). Therefore, I’m so happy about it. 

To crochet it I followed Beth Parsons pattern which you can find here: Beth’s Little Star Afghan. Thank you for great instructions and a picture tutorial! I helped me a lot.

I really love it, especially the idea of making it in different colors, in one color and so on. You can even try various crochet stitches and it would look perfect. I have another idea for it, hopefully coming any time soon.
