It has been extremely cold and my cheeks and ears have been freezing! I LOVE how squishy soft and warm this is. It is super cute in plain colors too. I have one to match my coat and it tucks right in without lots of extra bulk. Pull up to keep your mouth and cheeks toasty or pull up as a headband over your ears.
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
Growing up we spent a lot of time on the Oregon Coast and you never know what your weather will be. Sometimes you need a hat and mittens, sometimes your neck gets chilly. This works great year round because it is very versatile.
Don’t fear the fur! Fur yarns are a little trickier to work with but the finished product is oh so worth it! I ALWAYS hold a strange of matching ww yarn with the fur and it makes it much easier. Plus, instructions are included for non fur versions if desired.
We LOVE hooded scarves at my house and with fall quickly approaching I was in the mood to make a new one. This hooded, HOODED scarf is a fun twist, with bear ears that poke through. Also has “mitts” to keep your paws warm and toasty. Pattern also includes cat and dog ears.
INFO: My daughter loves this style of backpack and the little yellow guys! In making this pattern several ideas kept coming and we added and added more features. For a limited time they are all included! All features could be used on hats, scarves, pillows and more. Additional suggestions, like sewing to a premade pillow (as shown in one of the ...
INFO: I have wanted an adjustable birthday crown, sturdy enough to be worn by kids of all ages throughout a party. This turned out even better then I imagined! It would be great for classroom’s star student, king and witch costumes, over the hill parties, bridal showers and more.

It could also be attached to the bottom of your favorite character or regular...
Crochet: Fingerless Gloves, Headwrap
I made this pack for a quick solution to last minute gifts. I wanted a new, slightly chunky, headband and mitt set for my family. These whip up in just a few hours and the set takes less then 2 skeins of Lion Brand Tweed Stripes. Other yarns may be substituted.
Crochet: Beanie, Toque
I designed this hat based on my ice cream boarder which I love. My daughter wanted a lighter weight version with a looser feel. This is made using Lion Brand Tweed Stripes, but any similar yarn (heavy worsted or lighter weight bulky) will be great. I have also used worsted weight yarn (held single strand) and it was adorable, just slightly smaller.
Crochet: Animal Toy, Puppet
I LOVE the children’s storybook about a caterpillar that eats and eats and eats. I wanted a hand puppet that could eat also. After months of working on this I am so excited to finally have him ready. The head opens so kids can put pretend food into its mouth as the story is read. This will be so cute for teachers of all ages, librarians, m...
I LOVE making tawashis (scrubbers). It took me awhile to figure out a lot of the japanese patterns and I really wanted to make a peach scrubber because our little town celebrates “peach days” every september. This works up really cute as a peach or any color apple. I have even made it from varigated yarn as just a round scrubbie. Str...
