Its Been Awhile, Let me update you

Its been awhile since I have posted. Bad Blogger!!! I have been a little busy. I have finished 2 awesome projects & wanted to share with you. First, I completed this awesome hooded unicorn blanket from MJ’s Off the Hook Designs. Hooded Unicorn Blanket

 

Let me tell you, the child size blanket worked up so quickly. It uses a HUGE hook, a size I’ve never used before, so I had to adjust my hooking style. Regardless of my hooking style, this was amazing to work with. I used the recommended yarn & colors. It turned out amazingly soft, squishy, & super warm!!! I cannot wait until its new owner receives it. Its already arrived, but its a gift so it has not been opened yet!!!

I really cannot say enough good things about this pattern. It was so easy to follow and as long as your gauge is correct, you will have no problems attaining the proper size you need. I only changed the horn a bit. I didn’t like how many holes it had between the stitches when following the stitch that it used. I think it still turned out quite nice!!

The Jersey Beanie

Its been a pretty mild winter here in New Jersey, but that hasn’t stopped the winter hat addiction I seem to have. I love hats. This is one of my favorites so far. Its a super squishy, really soft & warm hat that is quick and easy to make. It works up ridiculously fast. I made 3 different hats in one day!!! I crochet slowly too! If you’re ready for the pattern, keep on reading!! You can download an AD FREE pdf from my shop or from ravelry for $1.00.

The Jersey Beanie

By At WIPS End Crochet – A Work In Progress

February 3, 2017

The Jersey hat is a two color fully ribbed beanie that looks great and is soft & warm. This hat works up quickly, uses 3 colors in total, less than 1/2 skein of each! It’s perfect if you have partial skeins laying around. It is also worked from the top down.

Supplies:

  • Hobby Lobby I love this yarn in 3 colors or any other worsted(4) Weight Yarn- 1 ball of each color
  • J/6.0mm Crochet Hook
  • K/6.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Pompom Maker
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle

Crochet Terms used are US/American

  • Ch– Chain
  • M/R – Magic Ring/Magic Circle
  • SlSt– Slip Stitch
  • dc – Double Crochet
  • Fpdc– Front Post Double Crochet
  • sc–Single Crochet
  • SSC – Split Single Crochet
  • F/O – Finish Off
  • C1 – Color #1
  • C2–Color #2
  • C3 – Color #3
GAUGE: Gauge is important to attain proper size.This swatch is completed by using the following pattern:row 1 dc, row 2Fpdc, row 3bpdc repeat row 2 & 3. When measuring for gauge height, turn your swatch over. You will be able to better distinguish rows. * See gauge photos on last page

Gauge is, using 6.5 mm hook and I love this yarn (4) is:
2 inches = 6sts& 4 rows

Pattern Notes:

*The Split Single Crochet (also called the wainscoat stitch or the center single crochet)is performed by inserting your hook in the “V” of the stitch from the previous round/row. Y/O pull up a loop, Y/O pull through both loops. It is essentially a “SC” but it is not done in the traditional loops of the stitch. –see figure 1

Ch1, Ch2do NOT count as stitches

In this pattern, I join to the 2nd fpdc in the round. This moves the CH2 to the inside of the hat. It also creates a seamless beanie, while not “messing” with the final dimensions. Each fpdc is started around the 1st fpdc from previous round (see figure 2)
