Newly Completed Items

Here are some photos of some newly completed items I have made. The first is a completed photo of the Afghan stitch scarf I was working on earlier. This scarf was super fun to make because both sides of the scarf are interesting and could be the ‘front’. Check out my shop listing for more detailed photos.

I also finished my Catherine Wheel Stitch hat. Also recently new to my shop, it turned out cute I like the alternating colors too.

I have used this stitch before but did not get a great photo of the hat so I did another using just navy blue but I plan to make more colors of this hat, it uses what is called a Butterfly Stitch, and I watched this video to give me a start, however I did not follow the pattern exactly to get the hat I made.

I will be posting an update with photos on my squares blanket, I have more colors done so look for that later this week!

Recent Fun Finds

I stumbled on this great tutorial for a Catherine Wheel stitch yesterday:

So I decided to try it on a hat:

I made 2 more squares for my blanket too, so not real huge leap forward there yet but more yarn arrived today for that project so thats great!

Another cool tutorial about crochet cats!

Diamond Hats Pattern

One of the first patterns I fell in love with is this awesome diamond pattern. At first it was rather daunting to try and figure out how in the world this thing comes together, but once I got the hang of it I cranked out a whole bunch of them.

Here are a few that I started out with first:

Diamond Hat Single Color

Berry

Diamond Hat Single Color

Medium Blue

Diamond Hat Single Color

Leaf Green

I learned this pattern from a great tutorial I found here: Hodge Podge Crochet

I then played around with adding different colors:

Diamond Hat Triple Color

I couldn’t stop there so I played around more with some different ways to do different colors too:

Diamond Hat Duo Color

Diamond Hat Peacock Overlay

I love this pattern it is so versatile so I will be continuing to experiment with this pattern and post up more as I finish them. Hope you like them!
