With everything going on I still make time daily for crochet or knitting. That's right, knitting!! I have taught myself how to knit and have fallen in the deepest love with my trusty circulars <3
My daughters are growing much too fast for my liking, and with growing comes new hats of course. But I must confess, I've done so many hat orders recently I'm really getting sick of them! My abilities stretch far beyond head wear and so I'm taking a much needed break from orders so I can just make what I want for awhile. I have a few hats I've made for the girls that I will post, and then no more hats until next year!!
My oldest daughter is probably the biggest Monster High fan out there, so when I came across a free Skullette appliqué pattern on Ravelry I was over the moon. I surprised her one day after school with a funky Monster High inspired hat and she loved it, which makes me one happy Mama!
I also seem to spend too much of my spare time on Pinterest looking for yarny inspiration and such, so I thought it would be cool to pin something of my own. I hadn't done this before but I saw so many projects from other people, so why not?? So I pinned this hat and I'm almost at 100 pins! I was so excited that I decided to pin some other projects from my blog only to discover that other people already had! So I'm out there and I didn't even know it! Very flattering, so thanks to whoever that was, random strangers or loyal blog followers ;)
The appliqué is a free pattern from Ravelry, found here Monster High inspired Skully. I used Red Heart Comfort from my stash. The bow and the rest of the hat were made with Caron Simply Soft. For the hat I used Neon Pink and Black held together throughout using a J hook with a basic HDC hat pattern.
Thanks for looking and Happy Hooking!
