I Like Big Bows! Crochet Bow Headwrap {FREE PATTERN}

Crochet Bow Headwrap {FREE PATTERN}

EDITED 9-9-15

I am on a bow kick right now!  Last week I made a bow hat and listed it in my Etsy shop!  This week I am excited to share the crochet bow headwrap pattern! They work up really quickly and can be so versatile!  You could make the headwrap and the bow different colors.  I think a striped headband with a bow would also be darling!

Materials:

  • Worsted weight yarn
  • I hook
  • H hook
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle

Headband:

0-6 Month: Ch. 55

6-12 Month: Ch. 60

 

Toddler: Ch. 65

Child: Ch. 70

Sl St. in first chain, making sure you don’t twist your chain.  Switch to H hook.  This will help with the tightness of the starting chain.

Assembly:

Place bow on top of headband.  I make sure to hide the seams of the headband and bow by placing them closest to each other.

Take bow and front layer of headband and shape them into a bow.  Wrap the long tail of the bow around all three layers.  Tie off and weave in any loose ends!

Crochet Skillet Handles + A Pizookie {Free Pattern}

Crochet Skillet Cover {Free pattern}I don’t know what other people do when they have several snow days in a row, but at our house we BAKE!  Our newest dessert is a pizookie (pizza + cookie)!  This dessert is cooked in a small cast iron skillet and topped with ice cream and chocolate syrup!  If you’re snowed in like me you should definitely visit A Beautiful Mess and try their skillet cookie recipe! Calories don’t count on snow days, right?

During all the pizookie making, my mom requested some crocheted skillet handle covers! I got to work looking on Pinterest for advice from other crocheters.  I found this post and tweaked it! This project is great for using leftover yarn and the handle covers work up really quickly! I had three made in just a few minutes.Crochet Skillet Cover {Free pattern}

 

Materials:

  • COTTON worsted weight yarn (acrylic yarn will melt when too hot)
  • Size J hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors

Pattern Changes:

  • Instead of crocheting the handle cover two times the length of the handle, I crocheted with two pieces of yarn at the same time.  It gave me the double thickness without having to crochet so many rows and double the fabric.
  • I used the same method as The Firefly Hook and crocheted a chain to measure the length of the widest part of the handle.  For the smallest skillet, I crocheted 8 chains and for the other skillet I crocheted 10 chains.
  • Because I crocheted with two strands of yarn at a time I used a size J hook instead of the I hook from the original pattern.

The handle covers work great and the pizookie was delicious!!

What’s On My Hook: Crochet Projects of the Week

This past week was FULL of crocheting!  In central Arkansas we had almost a week of icy weather.  It was easy to keep myself occupied during the winter storm with my hooks and some yarn!  We are expected to get some more winter weather at the beginning of the week so a lot of crochet time may be in my future!

Here are some things that have been on my hook this week:

Girly Crown Hat

Girly Crown Hat {FREE PATTERN}I posted a FREE PATTERN for this hat earlier this week!  It was a blast to make! I love the details of the ribbon and rhinestone buttons.  It was especially exciting when the owner of this new hat tried it on and it fit PERFECTLY! I love it when that happens!

Grumpy Cat Hat

I love it when I get a request to make a hat I’ve never made before.  I looked around for a pattern with no luck.  I did find a few on sale on Etsy and tried my hand at my own!  There’s always room for improvement but I’m pleased with how it turned out!

Bow Hat

This hat actually started out as the crown hat but I made it too big!  I couldn’t let it go to waste. My friend at Haley’s Crochet Creations has been making so many cute bow items lately.  Her creations inspired this hat! Thanks, Haley!

Round Ripple Blanket

Round Ripple Blanket by Ramsileigh Crochet

I have been itching to try a new blanket pattern!  The snow days are just what I needed! I found this free pattern on Ravelry!  It’s easy to follow and the color combinations and designs are endless! I will post more about this blanket when it’s complete!

What have you been working on lately?

Happy Crocheting!,

Girly Crown Hat {Free Crochet Pattern}

Girly Crown Hat {FREE PATTERN}

A customer recently asked me to make a really girly hat for her toddler and I LOVE how it turned out!  It has everything a girly hat needs– a crown, ribbon, and rhinestones! This girly crown hat pattern is for a toddler sized hat.

Materials:

  • Size I crochet hook
  • Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in soft pink
  • Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in light gray
  • Sew-ology rhinestone buttons from Hobby Lobby
  • Yarn Needle
  • Offray 5/8″ ribbon from Wal-Mart in light pink

Abbreviations:

  • Ch: chain
  • Dc: double crochet
  • Hdc: half double crochet
  • Sl st: slip stitch
  • Fdc: foundation double crochet

Hat:

Round 1: Using size I hook and soft pink yarn, make a magic ring. Ch. 2, crochet 11 dc in ring.  Sl st to first dc.

Round 2: Ch 2, dc in same stitch (counts as 2 dc), 2 dc in each stitch around, sl st in first dc.

Girly Crown Hat {FREE PATTERN}

Crown: 

The first row of the crown is a foundation double crochet stitch.  I like using the foundation double crochet stitch because you don’t get the tightness of the starting chain.  I want the crown to have some stretch to it!  When I was learning the foundation double crochet stitch I watched this video on YouTube!  If the foundation double crochet stitch isn’t something you’re interested in learning you have a couple of options:

  1. You can use a size up in hook for your starting chain.  In this case you would need to use a size J hook.
  2. You can crochet with your I hook but crochet loosely so your chain doesn’t end up being too tight.

Now, on to the pattern:

Row 1: Ch 3 followed by 62 foundation dc stitches. Sl st in first fdc. At this point I like to take the tail of the starting ch 3 and sew it to the end to get rid of the gap!

Row 2: Ch 2, dc in same st, *ch 1, skip next dc stitch, dc in next 2 dc stitches* (repeat from * to *).
