Super Slipper Socks -free crochet pattern-

Image
It's getting colder outside, and the best way to keep your feet warm (and stylish) is by wearing cute cozy slipper socks! I love the texture and the color of these crochet socks, along with that pretty crochet flower and button, it adds a little bit more interest to the design. These also make a great Christmas gift!

Vertical Cable Beanie or Slouch Hat -free crochet pattern-

Image
This pretty hat caught my eye right away!  Of course, mainly because I love anything grey, white, and black, but secondly, the style of the hat. It uses clean lines, textured cables, and the addition of the cute fur pom pom. The designer has written this pattern to include two variations, a fitted beanie, and a slouch hat. I am going to give this one a try!

Amelia Poncho -free crochet pattern-

Image
I've been seeing a knitted version of this all over social media lately, which is a pattern by Heidi May, in her shop, The Velvet Acorn. (Her patterns make me want to learn to knit, they are beautiful!) Today, I found this beauty of a crochet version, so get out your hooks and get to it!  It has it's differences from the knit poncho, for example the ribbing all along the edges, but the basic concept is about the same.  This designer also has a child's version of the pattern.

Cabled Headband Hat w/big Button -free crochet pattern-

Image
Here it is, my version of the crochet cabled headband slouchy hat with a great big button! I've been making this hat for over two years now, and it's still my top seller at local craft fairs, markets, and custom orders.  I've honestly been making it free form and from memory, but recently decided to actually write it down so that I can share it with you.  It's a very cute hat, and only requires knowledge of the basic stitches, plus the crab stitch (otherwise known as rsc - reverse single crochet) and working over post stitches. The highlight of this hat, really, is the giant button.  You can find them in all sorts of places, but I buy mine online from a Canadian (because I'm in Canada and shipping is faster to me) yarn company called knitca.com

Here's a cute hat to make this season!  I really enjoy the pom poms on the back of this hat, it's a fun feature.  The slouch hat is still dominating hat trends, and this one uses a vertical ribbing technique by crocheting in rows and cinched together.  This crochet hat pattern is available as a video tutorial and includes a pdf written pattern.
