Knit Square/Cat Hats

Winter is approaching, and it’ time to knit for warmth again!

I had been holding back going to Michaels for a while because every time I go, I can spend a lot buying something new.  I already have TONs of yarns and MANY ongoing projects, and  I am running out of money and out of space,  BUT winter is coming, so um…  I guess I just have to go look at yarns. 🙂

So this year, I went to Michaels and the Caron Cake yarn really caught my attention.

The Caron Cake yarn has multiple colors within a ball where the same color runs very long before it changes to another color, so it creates stripes of colors for a project without having to change to another yarn and weave in ends.  Also, it is important to note that it has 20% wool in this.  It just make things that much warmer.  So what I did with this Caron Cake yarn I bought was make some quick and simple hats. I was able to  make three hats from it, all looking very awesome and unique with their own special sequence of colors.

These hats shown above are being sold in my shop, and I will be making more hats and putting them up for sale, but if you want to make your own, I have written down the pattern and you can find it in my “Free Patterns” section under the “Hats” category.

Hats!!

I had been very interested in making hats lately because of the chilly winter!

I had made three hats during this winter, one of them is a balaclava hat, but I still haven’t get a chance to take pictures of that, but will do that soon….

For now, here’s the other two that I made.

The one below was done based on a pattern I found here: http://www.yarnspirations.com/patterns/winter-weekend.html

And then made another hat because my son insist that he wanted one with creepers on it.  And it seems like I might be doing a new project soon – A CREEPER PLUSH!!

Crochet Pea Shooter (Repeater) Hat

It’s been a while since I updated my blog, but I wasn’t being lazy, I was just really busy crocheting scarves for the holiday season and making my son’s costume for Halloween.

Crocheting scarves weren’t so fun, but making my son’s costume was definitely fun. He insisted that he wanted his Pea Shooter to be able to upgrade to a Gatling pea. It took a while to make everything, but I finished it and it work out very well!

My next project will be working on some crochet snowmen for the Christmas season, hopefully it will turn out as well as the pea shooter!
