Ciara Crochet Cloche

I wrote this cloche pattern while designing a gift for my friend Ciara. It's a great lightweight style that works well to hold the hair back on a windy day or keep your head warmer on a cool day. It has a fun cluster mesh design that is intricate enough to leave alone, but looks great with a decorative accent such as a flower as well.

Baby Crochet Stripes Beanie - Crochet Pattern



Originally uploaded by theartofmegan

My son Parker was born last Sunday, and while I've been hanging out holding a sleeping baby on my chest, I've taken the opportunity to have some yarn in my hands. This beanie is made with Knit Picks Shine in worsted weight, but can be made in any soft worsted weight yarn. Machine washable is always a big bonus for babies, who I'm coming to find out are very messy! I came up with this very basic baby beanie with stripes of a coordinating color worked through the bottom. This hat pattern is quick, easy, and doesn't use much yarn at all.

Note: Stripe colors can either be carried up the back of the project, or can be trimmed and worked into the rows.

Materials:
Size H crochet hook
Knit Picks Shine worsted weight yarn, 2 colors

Gauge: 8 sts x 4 rows in 2"x2", double crochet stitch

Cody Hat - Knitting Pattern

I recently made a hat for Cody, a close friend of mine, and he and I both love it. He's got long thick hair that he likes to wear up in a hat, so it's got plenty of room.

The hat is made from Hempathy yarn, so it stands up to some abuse and still looks fantastic. He can wash it, throw it in his backpack, whatever he likes and still have a great looking, comfortable hat.

Huz Scarf - Knitting Pattern

I made Mark a matching set this year. Here's his Huz Scarf, and you can find the link to the matching Huz Hat here.

He loves this scarf because he can wear it a few ways, it's warm, and it's very soft.

As you can see, the finished scarf is very long, just under 10 feet long. The ribbed pattern pulls the scarf in, highlighting the raised stripes and making for a very warm fabric.
