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:
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.
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!
