A testimonial!

I am inspired by so much I see, that I want to make it all. I have finished the Christmas hat, which was based on a photo I saw, so here it is…

I was so proud to teach some coworkers to crochet, who have fallen in love with the craft. One has written a testimonial for me, which was very nice of her. Thank you so much!

Finished Works

My recently finished hats and headbands…

 Elmo Hat from Cotton Gin Studios, crocheted with half double crochet stitches, a 3D nose in single crochet, and black on white in single crochet for the eyes. I modified the eyes, since I didn’t want to make 3D eyes. I had to create a larger size, since the one in the pattern was small.
 A favorite, the Despicable Me Minion hat from Ashley’s Crochet Place, in double crochet, with earflaps and braids. I had to modify the pattern to have different sizes and to make it look proportionate. Also, I changed up the way the eyes had to be crocheted.
 Another favorite with girls, popcorn stitch flower from b.hooked crochet. Hat starts with a double crochet and continues with cross stitches.
 Color options for above mentioned hat.
 I love this pattern from Frayed Knot! I had to create the flower pattern, since I couldn’t find one I liked online.

Project Completion – Crochet Hello Kitty Child Hat

Crochet hat pattern I am following is from

Amy’s Crochet Creative Creations

Photo from Arte del Ricamo
Someone requested this hat to be made for their 3 year old. Thankfully there are age ranges for the hat. I am using H hook and Caron Simply Soft (worsted weight) yarn. This should be pretty quick.
Starting the pattern, I wanted to make changes to the way I like to crochet and the way that’s faster for me.
Instead of the chain 5 and joining (which creates a hole at the top), I chained 3 and did 12 dc in the first chain. I also don’t like using/counting the chain 3 or 2 as a stitch at the beginning of the round because it creates a hole when the hat is stretched. So I do not count the chain 2 I make at the beginning of each round as a stitch, which in turn I have to pay attention to the pattern and make sure when it says ‘chain 3, dc’ like in row 2, that I ch 2, then 2 dc in that same stitch – for the increase.
This may sound a little crazy if you don’t know what I mean, but try Amy’s pattern; then try my way below…
Hat
+++ Join after each round.
1. Ch 3, dc 12 in first chain. 12
2. Ch2, inc in ea st. 24
I don’t know, but that is simpler to me. Regarding the writing of the pattern, it is very descriptive. Since this is a hat and I am familiar with making hats, all I need to follow it is:

3. Ch2, *dc, inc* around.

4. Ch2, *dc 2, inc* around.
5. Ch2, *dc 3, inc* around.

So you can see the mathematical pattern here — dc 1, then in the next row dc 2, then 3, and keep increasing until you like the diameter of the hat for a child. Once you stop decreasing, just dc straight until desired length of the hat.

In my case, I stopped decreasing at row 5 above, as stated in Amy’s pattern, and dc from row 6 to 14. Then sc in white and last row, sc in pink.

I do like row by row instructions because I can swap the needle or hook size and not think about adjusting the size/length of the pattern. By following the rows, I think the item comes out proportionate.

That’s a basic hat, but I do like to look at patterns to use as a guide and for details.
Came out cute!

Free Knitting Design (Pattern) – Cables Scarf

Free Knitting Pattern – Cables Scarf
by Olena’s CraftsI designed this scarf pattern for our very awesome Dog Trainer, to match her green eyes. She has helped us tremendously in connecting with our puppy, as well as gaining respect from and for Sam. We have a long way to go, but it sure is fun!

Size: One Size

Scarf Measures: 5″ Wide x 6′ in Length

Gauge: 4 stitches x 4 rows = 1″

Materials:

  • Worsted Weight Yarn in color of your choice- you can use any type of yarn but may need to adjust needle size
  • US 13 Needles
  • Scissors
  • Darning/Yarn Needle

Notes
First and last stitches are the edge stitches – these are always knit, on the wrong and right sides.
You can block this scarf if you’d like. It didn’t work too well with the yarn I used, so the edges curl in.
Scarf Pattern
 
Cast on 24 sts.
  1. K2, p4, k12, p4, k2
  2. K6, p12, k6
  3. K2, p4, C12B (put 6 stitches on cable needle and put to back of work, knit 6 stitches from the left needle, then knit the 6 stitches from the cable needle,) p4, k2
  4. K6, p12, k6
  5. K2, p4, k12, p4, k2
  6. K6, p12, k6
  7. K2, p4, k12, p4, k2
  8. K6, p12, k6
  9. K2, p4, k12, p4, k2
  10. K6, p12, k6
  11. K2, p4, k12, p4, k2
  12. K6, p12, k6

Knit these 12 rows for a total of 6′ or your desired length, then bind off. You can also attach the two ends and make it a cowl.

They way I bound off:
This bind off is super stretchy. Knit the first two stitches, put them back on the left hand needle, knit those two together. *Knit the next stitch, put the two from the right hand needle to the left and knit those two together. Continue from * to the end. Pull yarn through the last loop and cut. Weave in ends.

Now, wasn’t that easy? Once you get the rhythm, you can start knitting mindlessly – but be sure to keep track of your rows! I use a sticky. You can also stick your needle between the cables and count the ridges to make sure you have the right number of rows (in this case 12.


Please let me know who you would like to make a scarf for and I will come up with a unique pattern for them. Just message me to the right of your screen in the “Contact Form.” Be sure to include a little bit of background about this special person!

As always, thanks for visiting!

Knit Hat

I have so many projects in progress, but this one is  special. I had a sudden urge to buy yarn, which I did. I bought Michael’s Loops and Threads Payette in Sterling Silver and Ruby Red. They were on sale and I was looking for yarn thinner than the average worsted weight, my go to – Caron Simply Soft.

I then started working on this baby top pattern from DROPS Garn Studio,



but went for my 60 More Quick Baby Knits book  and found the hat pattern that was perfect!
I usually never try to get the Gauge as recommended, I just start knitting =). So I casted on 88 sts, 22 sts on each DPN, and started off with the K1, P1. This is for the 6-12 month size. Working the first 8 rows, I am using size US 5 DPNs and size 2 Fine yarn, the stitch count for the gauge was spot on! 37 sts.. and the 32 rounds part I have yet to check, but as long as the circumference is good, I can manipulate the height of the hat to whatever I like. Cool!
Time to change to Red and keep in the pattern changing colors every 8 rows (=1″) and working the K1, P1 for 4″. My gauge is exact with 32 rows = 4″.
Decrease 6 sts after 6″, continue in pattern for 1″, then decrease 6 sts again. FO, weave in ends through the remaining loops. Tighten.
Completo!

Baby Knit Socks

I’m making a pair of these really simple baby socks – pattern from Rahymah Handworks.

I didn’t know what size the socks would be when I started making them with US 3 and DK yarn – they looked wayyy too small. I changed to size 7 DPNs and ww yarn and they have a 5.25″ sole length.

So that would be for approximately an 18 month old toddler.

This is the closest chart I could find from Petite Feve:

You can either join the two ends by sewing or crocheting together, or sew a button to one end of the headband. Fo.

To join by slip stitch (into back loops of each end of fabric,) fold the headband in half with right sides together. Insert the hook into the front loop (loop closest to you) in the end of headband closest to you, and insert the hook into the back loop of the other end of headband. Yarn over and bring that stitch under both loops on the hook and through the last loop on the hook. That’s one slip stitch.

I saw this really cute hat and wanted to use up some of my DK (size 3) yarn that I’ve had forever. I am using US 5 DPNs for this pattern from Nona Knits.

Here’s the finished knit baby hat!

Gift cards make things awesome (aka lots of yarn!)

Bought some Bernat Softee Baby, size 3 light yarn, and already starting a baby hat.

Pattern is from Maria Carlander. Please go to her website for details. I am simply following her pattern, but I am using size 3.25mm/US 3 DPNs since the US does not have 3.00mm needles. Also, the pattern uses sport yarn and I am using DK, which is larger. I also cast on one extra stitch at the end, then slip the stitch to the left hand needs, and knit that stitch and the first stitch of the round together. This creates a better looking join.

My gauge: 32 sts by 40 rows for 4″.
