Peek-a-BOO Pumpkin Hat

ALL PATTERNS IN RAVELRY STORE 50% OFF UNTIL MIDNIGHT PACIFIC STANDARD TIME 12 OCTOBER 2017 USING COUPON CODE:  thankful

Introducing the Peek-a-BOO Pumpkin Hat pattern… just in time to make some for the Littles in your life, to keep them warm this fall! Perfect for visits to a Pumpkin Patch, fall craft fairs, walks in the park to collect bright fall leaves.

They work up quickly, using aran or worsted weight yarn and a 5mm hook for the hats–use a 4mm hook for the little Topper cat, ghost, and spider.  The Toppers look cute in place of a pom-pom on any fall hat, or make them for little pocket pal toys–great as cat toys, too!

The Thanksgiving Pumpkin Hat has also been updated, and for even more fun I added another BONUS pattern in it!  It now gives instructions to make 2 sizes of Pumpkin Totes–perfect for Trick-or-Treat bags, or to carry little toys, or for your littles to carry their own purchases at fall craft fairs.

Witch, Bowler, and Fedora Fascinators Pattern

spooky2

The free pdf pattern for these 3 designs is now available in my Ravelry Store.

Make them in different colours for different purposes and seasons! The witch hat would be perfect as a princess’s or wizard’s hat; the bowler and fedora would be cute summer accessories in pastels or bright colours. They can be easily made larger by using a chunky weight yarn with a larger hook, which would give added textural interest, too.  They are nice little doll and teddy bear accessories for children’s play time.

If you need any help with the pattern or find any errors, please contact me.  It is often quickest to contact me with a message on my West Coast: Super, Natural Facebook Page.  If you ‘Like’ my page and keep it in your news feed by commenting occasionally or just clicking ‘like’ on a post you will see new patterns as they become available, as well as giveaways and more!  Thanks for trying my designs, I hope you enjoy them.

Witch Hat Fascinator

witch fascinator hat

It isn’t too late to crochet up a bunch of these cute miniature witches hats!  They only take a small amount of yarn and a few minutes of your time.  Tomorrow or Wednesday I’ll add 2 more fascinators–a bowler hat and a fedora/cowboy hat–and offer the 3 patterns in a Pdf Ravelry download.

The little fascinators are so quick to make up that they are perfect to use for ladies fascinators, doll hats, or fall décor. Make them in different colours for different purposes and seasons! The witch hat would be perfect as a princess’s or wizard’s hat; the bowler and fedora would be cute summer accessories in pastels or bright colours.  Make a bunch up for a party, leave heaps of different trims nearby, and let adults or children décorate their own hat!  They would even be cute place cards at a table–just add a little name tag; let the guests take the hat home as a memento.  They are perfect accessories for pumpkins, too!

Please remember that patterns are copyright, even the free ones.  Don’t copy and paste to your own webpage, or any other online source: instead, please share a link to my pattern post on Pinterest, G+, Rebelmouse, Twitter, Facebook, etc.  Sharing photos of your items, made from this pattern or anything else you’re making, and posting comments on Facebook is welcome.  I’d love to see your crocheted and knitted work!

As always, if you find any errors or have any questions, please contact me.  It is usually quickest to send a personal message on Facebook.

This pattern is now available as a free download in my

True Blue Mountain Hood–Crochet

true blue mountain

Most of the years from the age of 10 until my mid-thirties I lived directly across the valley from True Blue Mountain, which is south-west of the incredibly beautiful village of Kaslo, BC.  In the spring, we’d hear avalanches come thundering down the ravines, and rush outside to watch.  In the summer, we’d hike up its slopes…and always, from dawn until night, it was a large and comforting presence in our lives.  Even on foggy summer nights, glimpses of True Blue  could be seen.  When I think of all the things I miss most about living in my mountain homes, True Blue is near the top of the list.  Therefore….this Hood pattern is named in honour of True Blue Mountain.

true blue mountain2

There are lots of photos to help make this using any yarn you choose! It is worked from the top down, and there are no seams at all…quick, easy, fun!
It is FREE for 1 WEEK ONLY! On Dec. 2/2013 it will be a paid pdf file.

True Blue Mountain Hood Pattern

CANADIAN/US CROCHET TERMS ARE USED IN THIS PATTERN

This hood can be made with any yarn–and the right hook for your yarn, of course.  I will be making my first True Blue Mountain Hood using Red Heart Super Saver and a 7mm hook; this hook is larger than most people would use with the yarn, because I live on the west coast which is very mild in temperature–the larger hook gives a cloth which is lighter and more open.  You can always crochet a little square to see what hook/stitch you like.

For this Hood you can also choose what stitch you want to use. I used half double crochet to make the first Hood.

You can make it with a short, close-fitting cowl, like this:

true blue 075

Or with a long infinity cowl, like this:

true blue 024true blue 023  true blue 025

You can work all the way around in single crochet for a narrow border:

true blue 003

Or in half double crochet for a medium border:

true blue 004

Or make a simple but pretty shell border.  This is the BORDER OPTION I used on my tutorial hood!

true blue 002

true blue 012true blue 011

If you like, make some snowflakes and either sew them on or do as I did–just put a hair pin onto the back.  Then you can move them around, take them off, wear them on another hat, wear them in your hair…take the hairpin out, add a thread and use them as tree or window ornaments!true blue 020true blue 019

true blue 016true blue 014

I wanted to show you that you can use any yarn you like, and make a hood that fits you.  Here is one I made in some vintage White Buffalo 100% wool yarn–a super bulky weight, the same yarn I made my blue “Mount Alberta Hood” with.  If you want to make a hood like this, you can purchase Briggs & Little “Country Roving”–the yarn my black Mount Alberta Hoods are made with.

true blue 049 true blue 050

For this Hood I used double crochet and then made a short buttoned cowl.  The textured, woven-look border on the bottom is reversible, so I put a different button on each side!

I also made a cute Hood  in this style, but using half double crochet for the Hood, to fit a child age 1-3 years.  I used Bernat Softee Chunky and a 6mm hook. Instead of a button closing, I added ties.
