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.

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?
