Crochet Ribbed Hat

This is SUPER easy to make. You just need to know: how to chain, single crochet, half double crochet into the back loop.

You need a Size J hook (or one that will fit gauge), bulky yarn, tapestry needle (recommended, but not needed).

It should take an hour to 3 hours.

Pattern found here.

A cowl I’m making for myself ūüėÄ

I’m using the (discontinued) Moda Dea’s Tweedle Dee; Blue Heather.

The pattern I’m using can be found here. For those who crochet use a size L hook. First, make a chain of about 8″ or what ever height you want it to be, then single crochet or half-double crochet ¬†into the back loops, and at the end join ends together. (I wish I knew a little bit more about crocheting, so that I could really be useful).

It’s super easy! It’ll work up pretty quickly since it requires bulky weight yarn.

This is my current project. My sister wanted a cowl. This is what it looks like so far:

I’m using Filatura Lanarota: Alpaca Cloud. It’s halfway done now. I’ll show what the result is at the end!

The patter found here 

I haven’t posted in, well, a long time. I apologize. Life gets pretty busy when you become a senior in high school and have to worry about this thing called life and college.¬†

During the summer of boredom and doing nothing, I decided to teach myself to knit. I went online on YouTube and used Google to figure out how to knit. It was actually quite nice. The information was very accessible.

I found an online knitting/crocheting community online. It’s called Ravelry. They are AMAZING. It’s like where all the knitters and crocheters get their information. On there you can find patters, forum posts, other¬†people, and a way to organize all of your knitting/crocheting projects.¬†My first projects were booties. They came out like this:

Unfortunately, I did it completely wrong… The side of the¬†booties¬†was actually supposed to be the other way around… So I decided to make two other booties because they should at least match. Took about 3-5 days to do this. The pattern for this can be found here. I made them for my newborn niece by the way.

The second project I decided to make is a cat hat since I am slightly obsessed with cats.  If you want the pattern for it go here.

My third project which was a HUGE job from the booties and hat which are quite smalls projects. I made a blanket… using worsted yarn. The blanket was knit. It made essentially four scarves that are later crocheted together and then a border is crocheted. After 55 lovely hours of knitting and crocheting, this is the result:

If you want the pattern for it go here. My blanket was about 22inches x 33inches.

I had a bit of yarn and made this :). Pattern here.

Finally, the last project was two hats that I crocheted. My friend got me really weird yarn (Homespun; Corinthian) and I didn’t know what to do with it. One friend wanted a hat from it and after my mom saw it, she wanted one too. Pattern found here. And I made a granny square.

That’s it for now. I’ll keep y’all updated on my knitting/crocheting adventures.
