New Adult Version of Crochet Baby Hat Pattern ADORABLE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember this adorable baby hat & bootie pattern, Buttercup? Well, I've recently updated it with an adult version of the hat! All you need to do is change the hook size to an H/8 (5mm) crochet hook and use one ball each of Superior and Nirvana held together to create this romantic, feminine, fluffy kitten of a hat! I added a band of hdc-tbl around the lower edge for a brim as well.

Pattern available here, INCLUDING the optional adult faux ribbed brim: Buttercup Crochet Hat Pattern

Yarn kit will be available for the first time ever at my booth at VK Live New York Jan 17 - 19, 2014, booth#1004.

Kristin's Knit Drop Stitch Scarf Pattern Revision & Addition

It should not come as a suprise that I am dazzled by blingy things. One of my favorite yarns in the world is Crystal by S. Collezione (Tahki Stacy Charles). One of my favorite ways to feature unusual textured yarns and/or pairings of yarns is with drop stitches. I've been dying to revise the Drop Stitch Shawl/poncho pattern to include an infinity loop scarf and Voila! I whipped up a slightly smaller version of the original and shortened the overall length by a few inches and joined the scarf into a loop. Dropping stitches is a great way to also add volume to a smaller (and quicker) number of stitches!

Thanks to my darling and uber talented in-house photographer (aka SharkHunter) here are some photos of the new Drop Stitch Infinity Loop Scarf. Pattern available here at Ravelry: Ribbon Drop Stitch Scarf/Poncho/Shawl buy now
