First make a plain headband by using worsted weight yarn and an I crochet hook.  Directions below

Chain 66

Row 1) Half double crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook  and in each of the remaining chains.  ( 65 hdc made)

Row 2)  Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the back loop only of each stitch across

Row 3) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the front loop only of each stitch across

Rows 4, 6 & 8) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the back loop only of each stitch across

Rows 5, 7 & 9) Chain 2 and turn.  Half double crochet in the front loop only of each stitch across

Using your crochet hook, slip stitch the row ends together to form a tube.  Cut yarn and weave in ends.

With a contrasting color, attach the yarn some where near your seam.  Ch1 and single crochet in the same stitch as your join.  You will now begin the Reverse Single Crochet (or Crab stitch or Crawl stitch) Single crochet in the next stitch to the right.  Continue around the headband in this direction.  Fasten yarn.

Repeat the same process for the top of the headband.

Make the Flower

You can use any flower pattern you like.  This is how I made mine.

Chain 2

Round 1–In the first chain made, make 5 half double crochet.  Join in the first stitch made.

Round 2 — * Chain 3, in the next stitch, double crochet, triple crochet, double crochet, chain 3 and slip stitch *  Repeat from * around until you have made 5 petals.

Round 3- – You will now add loops behind the petals for the back layer you will make in the next round. * Chain 3, in the back of your work slip stitch around the post of the first triple crochet to your left.*  Repeat from * around  (6 chain spaces made)

Round 4 — * chain 4, in the chain space made in the previous round, make 3 triple crochet, chain 4 and slip stitch *  Repeat from * in the remaining 5 chain spaces you made in the previous round. (6 petals made)

Cut yarn leaving a long tail and fasten off.

Place the flower over the seam and sew to your headband.

Weave in all your ends and enjoy :)

Bunny Booties – Baby Slippers

Little Easter Bunny Slippers

Once again it was time to go through my WIP’s and grab out a few things to finish.  This time some of the items were these little bunny slippers with ears.

These were made with a free pattern by Hectanooga 1.  Aren’t they just adorable? They are quick to work up too.  To top it all off this is a video tutorial so you can follow right along and hit the pause button if you get behind and need to catch up.  Here’s the link to the tutorial I used to make these

 

Chunky Frog Hat – crochet pattern. Newborn to 12 Months

Chunky Frog Hat crochet pattern

Newborn to 12 months

Gauge:
Working in pattern: 5 dc & 3 r = 2”  **see notes below about row gauge

You will need:
Worsted weight yarn in green
Worsted weight yarn in white
2 buttons or beads
J (6 mm) crochet hook
yarn needle, sewing needle, sewing thread
a ruler or tape measure

Abbreviations Used:
ch- chain
st- stitch
ss- slip stitch
sc- single crochet
hdc- half double crochet
dc- double crochet

This pattern makes a chunky green frog hat for babies. Using a 6 mm hook gives the hat a tight weave which will give the eyes a better chance of staying upright.

This is designed to fit right at mid ear so the hat is short enough that the brim will not need to be rolled up and also so that the hat will fit on top of the head without slouching back therefore keeping the frogs eyes right on top of baby’s head.

Suggested length is given for each size as general guideline and your row gauge may vary greatly depending on the brand of yarn you are using. Mine does. If your hat at the last row is not as long as you want it but you don’t want it as long as it will be with another row of double crochet then just chain one and add a row of single or half double crochet. If you do want the hat long enough so that the brim gets rolled up (which could be really cute too ) just crochet until the hat is is 2 or 2 1/2” longer than the pattern.

I hope you love this pattern. If you have any problems or questions or if you just want to send me a picture of what you made, I’m only an email away :)

Crochet Fingerless Gloves

These are some fingerless mittens I worked up to go with the purple crocheted legwarmers.

These are short little wristers.  You could make yours longer simply by making more chains.

They were easy as can be.  Here’s what I did.

Worsted weight yarn
J hook

Gauge:  7 dc and 3 1/2″ rows= 2″

PATTERN:

Ch 16

Row 1) DC in 3rd chain from hook and across.  Turn

Rows 2- 10) ch2, DC in next stitch and across, turn (14 dc )

At row 10 mine measured almost 7″ which will stretch around my hand which is about 7.5″ at the widest part.

Slip stitch or sew the edges together until 2″ from end.  Leave 1 1/2″ open for thumb and sew/slip stitch remaining 1/2″ closed.
