Yesterday Was a Very Crafty Day…

So after several long work and study days I was able to pick up my Crochet hook.  I have a friend’s birthday this week and also had a couple stuffed pumpkin patterns I wanted to try.

I started the day with an earflap beanie I found on Ravelry:

2013 - Jack B-day

The FREE pattern can be found here:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/simple-earflap-hat

I made this for a friend who is having a birthday this week, he likes the Denver Broncos so I used Vanna’s Choice Terracotta and Red Heart Navy.  I did make a few alteration to the pattern.  I shortened the hat by a round and instead did the contrasting trim on the edge.  I also added the orange and navy pompom on the top.

I also had a small casualty from the experience.  When I was making the pompom I broke my yarn needle!  My last yarn needle!  So today I will have to make a trip to the mall to pick up a new one.

After the pumpkin hat from last week (https://naughtyknots.wordpress.com/2013/10/09/the-finished-pumpkin-hat/) I have gone a little pumpkin crazy.  So last night I also attempted a stuffed pumpkin (which was much more difficult than it should have been as I did not have a yarn needle) that was a very similar pattern to the hat I made.

I used another FREE pattern I found on Ravelry:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/easy-pumpkin-crochet-tutorial—follow-along-with-written-pattern

I used Vanna’s Choice in Terracotta and Olive.  I really liked the way this one turned out.  It is so little and super cute right?  I want to try making some different sized pumpkins with this pattern.

2013 - Kitty Photo Bomb

I put the pencil in the photo for scale… Then someone decided to photo bomb my pumpkin picture! 🙂

I am trying another pumpkin pattern out to see which one I like better, but without a yarn needle it is in limbo… hopefully I will be able to finish it tonight and post a picture tomorrow.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday!

Happy Hooking
