Crochet C2C Panda Monkey Baby Blanket / Graphghan - Knot My Designs

C2C Panda Monkey Baby Blanket

You might have already known about my new found love for Corner-to-Corner Crochet from my previous blogs. Making any C2C blanket is easy and interesting especially when you have a grid-based graph or a pixel graph with you. There are over a thousand graphs available online in different variety from living to non-living. However, animals and cartoon characters are the most popular pixel arts available online. They are top choices when you are looking for patterns for children.

When I learned C2C, I quickly jumped at the opportunity of making a baby blanket. I liked the Dog graph from 1dogwoof and altered the colours to make Woof! Woof! Baby Blanket.

But I was craving for learning the art myself. The challenge arrived when a friend approached me for a similar theme as Woof! Woof! Baby Blanket, after checking out the homepage. Apparently, the couple needed it in 2-3 weeks, so I decided to make a monkey-panda themed blanket. 

Completely new at pixel drawing, I browsed few monkeys and pandas online to understand the intricacies of the pattern with respect to the facial features and body positioning. I must admit that the process is tedious and takes a lot of practice and hit and trails. You have to start with one figure at a time like I did with the monkey and then made one change at a time to understand the overall look of the pattern. 

I finally succeeded and I can proudly say this was my first attempt at pixel art! I hope you like what I have tried to bring out in these and try out for yourself.

 

Process:

Collect the colours that you plan to use for the blanket. Start C2C crocheting and then C2C decreasing crocheting to complete one graph. Repeat the similar process for all the graphs twice. Both the graphs are 25×25. Make 1 graph and measure its size. It will help you analyse the final size of the blanket. Proceed towards making other 3 parts. For this blanket, each part is 17″ and a final border of 1-2″ makes the blanket 36×36 or 37×37. 

Note: Make 1 graph and check out the measurement of that part. It will help you analyse the final size of the blanket. Proceed towards making other 3 parts. For this blanket, each part is 17″ and a final border of 1-2″ makes the blanket 36×36 or 37×37. 

For this blanket, each part is 17″ and a final border of 1″ makes the blanket 37×37. 

This pattern requires proper counting and marking after completion of each square to avoid any mistakes.

Remember:

  1. Print the coloured graph ( or black and white graph and mark the colours) and number all the rows and columns. Here, it is 25×25. The C2C stitch grows diagonally.
  2. Starting with C2C Crochet Stitch Increasing ( focusing on the colour change) increase diagonally for 25 rows. 
  3. Start decreasing C2C Crochet Stitch (focusing on the colour change as per the graph) decrease till the count reaches 1.

Edging:-

After completing the 4 parts, join them using the Invisible Stitch. Work on the edging on the blanket. 

R1: Ch 1, Single Crochet (SC) around each post. 3 SC at the corners. 

R2: Ch 2, Double Crochet on each SC. 3 DC at the corners or at the corner 3SC – 3DC on the middle 3 SC group.

R3: Ch 2, Half-Herringbone Double Crochet (HHDC) around each DC. 3 HHDC at the corner DC or 3 HHDC on the middle of the 3 DC group.

¹C2C crochet stitch / Increasing C2C Crochet Stitch:

  • [Chain 6.
  • R1: Double Crochet (DC) in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains. [ 1st corner block is made]
  • R2: turn the work, chain 6. DC in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains.  Slip stitch on the chain 3. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in the same chain 3 space of the previous row. [2nd row contains 2 blocks]
  • R3: Repeat R2 [3rd row will contain 3 blocks. Likewise, the Row-Number will have same number blocks.]
  • Continue R2 to increase horizontally and vertically up to the required number on the graph.]

²Decreasing C2C crochet stitch

  • [turn the last row. slip stitch on 1st DC, 2nd DC, 3 DC.
  • Slip Stitch(SL ST) chain 3 space. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in same chain 3 space.
  • Continue (SL ST, chain 3, 3 DC) in next chain 3 space.
  • Repeat till the last 2nd block. SL ST in the last chain 3 space. ]

Caution Section:-

Final pointers to keep in mind when working on this project.

  1. Print colourful graph. If you have the black and white printer then print the graph and colour the blocks using colour pencils or mark G for green, Y for Yellow, Br for Brown, Sk for light brown or skin etc. so that you do not miss out the shape.
  2. Mark each row and column so that you know at which row you are while working.
  3. Also, count the number of blocks use 1 colour in that working row. Remember we work diagonally in C2C.
  4. Make one graph and measure the part. Based upon this measurement you can calculate the total size of your blanket. You can increase the size of the blanket by
    1. adding few rows of SC and DC around each part.
    2. adding an edge and increasing the edge using DC around.
  5. For e.g. here each part is 17″. In order to get 40″X40″ blanket, I have to add another 5″. I can add a row of SC and another row of DC in each part. Then after sewing them, I can add another one row of SC and DC and HHDC. You can mix and match the options to get your desired size.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 37″
  • Width: 37″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for 3rd colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
  • You can add pom-pom or tassels (matching the colour with the edging or the base colour) at the 4 corners. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • Avoid the border and just add tassels/pompoms made of a mixture of the base colours.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.
  • You can increase the total size of the blanket.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet C2C Geometricised Colour Baby Blanket / Graphghan - Knot My Designs

Geometricised Colour Baby Blanket

Have you ever wondered why babies or newborn toys are colourful and of various shapes? 

Because as a child grows, he/she learns to observe and categorize the objects around in form of shapes and colours. This helps to develop the brain and build that motor skills. The kid learns to differentiate size, shapes and patterns around. Colours help to identify objects like yellow fruit in the shape of half circle is a banana. 

I have always dreamt of making a geometric-shaped colourful blanket for children to serve as a multi-purpose item. It can not only be used as a swaddling cover or stroller blanket or normal baby blanket but also can be laid on carpet or bed and they can play with the colours and shapes. 

I was successful to implement when a friend asked me for a custom baby blanket to gift.

After getting a hold on Corner to Corner (C2C) Crochet stitch, I tried a few pixel grid graphs on my own. I liked the work of other fellow crocheters but I wanted to make a pattern all by myself from the scratch. The basic way to learn is to simply form geometric shapes to get the idea of blocks and shapes. 

This struck me with the idea of making the geometric-shaped squares for the baby blanket. I tried all basic geometric shapes and polygons. I changed the colours of the squares based on the availability of yarns and voila! here is the charming baby blanket. 

Process:

We can find a square, circle, rectangles, triangle, right angle triangle, ovals, trapezoid, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, parallelogram, diamond, septagon, rhombus of different colours in this Geometricised Colour Baby Blanket.

Collect the colours that you plan to use for the blanket. Start C2C crocheting and then C2C crocheting in descending pattern to complete one graph. Repeat the similar process for all the graphs as these are the 15×15 grid. Make 1 graph and measure its size. It will help you analyse the final size of the blanket. Proceed towards making other 15 pieces. For this blanket, each piece is 10″ and no border makes the blanket 40″ X 40″.

Note: Make 1 graph and check out the measurement of that part. It will help you analyse the final size of the blanket. Proceed towards making other 15 pieces. You can add a row of SC if you want to have the uniformity all around. 

This pattern requires proper counting and marking after completion of each square to avoid any mistakes.

  1. Print the coloured graph ( or black n white graph and mark the colours) and mark the total rows and columns. It is 15X15. The C2C corner stitch grows diagonally.
  2. Starting with ¹C2C Crochet Stitch (focusing on the colour change) increase diagonally till the count 15.
  3. Start ²decreasing C2C Crochet Stitch (focusing on the colour change as per the graph) decrease till the count reaches 1.

Edging:-

After completing the 16 square pieces, join them using the Invisible Stitch. Work on the edging on the blanket. 

I haven’t provided any edging as the size is already 40″ X 40″ and the invisible stitch flows pretty well.

Crochet Persimmon C2C Diamond Throw - Knot My Designs

Persimmon C2C Diamond Throw

Some are addicted to chocolates, others few are to shopping; I got addicted to C2C crochet stitch. Corner-to-corner crochet stitch is a common passion for crocheters. It is a treasure chest for any crocheter that has an infinite number of patterns, animated objects, animals, flowers and more to offer. All you need is a pixel art of what you want to make. You can easily find grid graphs online made available by many generous crocheters for us to work on and create beautiful art with yarn.

I tried hard not to get addicted to C2C crochet stitch after working on Woof! Woof! Baby Blanket and C2C Checkered Lap Blanket. So, I decided to make a chevron patterned lap blanket as something to take me away from C2C. I was halfway into crocheting the blanket when I realized that the difference in the thickness of the yarns (I bought) was adding additional weight to it. Also, I was running out of time.

I decided to drop the idea and I started looking for new crochet stitches, which will make a gorgeous blanket using rust, pale orange and cream combinations of yarn. I stumbled upon this Pinterest picture. Guess what! It was corner-to-corner crochet diamond shape blanket. 

Call it luck or love, I was back to C2C.

Process:

The Ravelry link from C2C Diamonds Blanket for Baby Hemmesch described the pattern as 

C2C¹ Squares Pattern: 
4 rows grey 
2 rows gold 
2 rows mint 
2 rows grey 
3 rows mint (start decrease on 3rd row of mint here) 
2 rows grey 
2 rows mint 
2 rows gold 
4 rows grey

I changed the grey to cream, gold to pale orange and mint to rust.

One way to get the overall diamond-shaped design is to start with small parts and then add them together. Starting with making 12 rows diagonal line patterns, measuring up to 8″, join four of these parts together to form a diamond shape. However, after working on the above pattern separately, I realized that quite a lot of yarn was getting wasted while changing colours. Also, the higher number of knots, the higher chances of the yarn getting entangled between. 

In my previous C2C Checkered Lap Blanket, I had used 15 squares of Taupe (measuring 10″) n 15 squares of Green (measuring 10″) to make 60×40 size blanket. So in order to achieve the same size in this particular blanket, I would have to work on 30 bits of the diagonal pattern. This would also require securing the knots of every piece, sewing the stranded yarns of every piece, and stitching these parts into a blanket. It seems to be a pointless investment of time and energy.

Therefore, I decided to create a bigger C2C¹ Diamond graph and join them to make a blanket. I completed the 4 pieces of the diagonal pattern and joined them. Using this section as one diamond pattern, I created the diamond a graph. Now the graph has 24 rows measuring up to 16″. The graph is a continuation of the small pieces. I was glad about the outcome since the final pattern remained unchanged and helped me save the time and energy.

I was able to complete the project in a month easily, with there is less wastage of yarn and less hassle of securing the knots. 

P.S. I avoid too many joints in my work assuming if the blanket is used roughly, the stitch will still guarantee a long run. Provided that the wash care instructions are followed for maintaining the originality of the product. You can still opt for 8″ diagonal squares.

Pattern:-

The number of rows to work is 24. The total size of this square is 16″. To achieve the 64X40 size blanket.

C2C Diamond Graph = 8

C2C Extended Diagonal Graph = 4

I have joined these squares using Invisible Join Stitch.

Note: The size might increase or decrease depending on the yarn and crochet hook used.

¹C2C crochet stitch:

  • [Chain 6.
  • R1: Double Crochet (DC) in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains. [ 1st corner block is made]
  • R2: turn the work, chain 6. DC in 4th chain from the hook. 2 DC in next 2 chains.  Slip stitch on the chain 3. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in the same chain 3 space of the previous row. [2nd row contains 2 blocks]
  • R3: Repeat R2 ]

²Decreasing C2C crochet stitch

  • [turn the last row. slip stitch on 1st DC, 2nd DC, 3 DC.
  • Slip Stitch(SL ST) chain 3 space. (Chain 3, 3 DC) in same chain 3 space.
  • Continue (SL ST, chain 3, 3 DC) in next chain 3 space.
  • Repeat till the last 2nd block. SL ST in the last chain 3 space. ]

Caution Section:-

  1. The size of one diamond square segment might increase or decrease depending on the yarn and crochet hook used.
  2. The wool gauge of rust and cream are same but pale range is different. Thus, I have increased the 6:3 ratio of basic C2C crochet stitch to 7:4 Also, I included 4 Double Crochet instead of 3 in C2C crochet stitch. 
  3. The same crochet hook is maintained throughout the process.
  4. I avoid too many joints in my work assuming if the blanket is roughly used, still the stitch will guarantee a long run. Provided that the wash care instructions are followed for maintaining the originality of the product. You can still opt for 8″ diagonal squares.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 64″
  • Width: 40″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for 3rd colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.
  • You can add pom-pom or tassels (matching the colour with the edging or the base colour) at the 4 corners. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • Avoid the border and just add tassels/pompoms made of a mixture of the base colours.

Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt Free Pattern with Peppermint Candy Style - Knot My Designs

Christmas Treeskirt

You better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
(Big, fat Santa’s on his way)…

Christmas Carols, Christmas decorations, Christmas is on the way!

It’s Christmas! Every mall, every store, every home looks beautiful decorated with Poinsettia, candles, lights, stockings, gift-wrapped items, wreaths made with pinecones and lots of other ornaments. But any decoration is incomplete without a Christmas tree!

History (wiki) says that according to the Encyclopædia Britannica, “The use of evergreen trees, wreaths, and garlands to symbolise eternal life was a custom of the ancient Egyptians, Chinese, and Hebrews. Tree worship was common among the pagan Europeans and survived their conversion to Christianity in the Scandinavian customs of decorating the house and barn with evergreens at the New Year to scare away the devil and of setting up a tree for the birds during Christmastime.”

Another folk version defined Christmas tree as “Tree of Paradise in remembrance of the birth of Adam and Eve; where the tree with apples is now replaced with the red shiny baubles.”

In modern world, we decorate them with bells, candy canes, snow globes, lights, garlands, ribbons, tinsels, golden, silver and other different colored baubles; the tree skirt covers the tree stand;  snowman or reindeer shaped ornaments are hanged; and a star at the tree top is added to complete the decoration.

Process:

When my customer was decorating her Christmas tree, she approached me for Christmas tree skirt for her tree. After gathering the details about the decoration theme, I decided to make a peppermint candy style tree skirt with nude and red yarn. I followed the Redheart – Peppermint Candy Throw and Pillow pattern.

But it was difficult to get the initial startup. So, I used SmoothFoxLover – Christmas Tree Skirt to get the start.

My tree skirt dimension was supposed to be 50″ in diameter. I worked for 6 rows as mentioned in the pattern. Then instead of switching yarn at alternate rows, I followed the Redheart – Peppermint Candy Throw and Pillow procedure to continue further. I kept on increasing counts till the skirt diameter was 50″.

Pattern:-

The design is evolved from bits and pieces of 2 different patterns. It can be divided into sections for better understanding.

  1. Initial Shell stitch line.
  2. Expansion of the Open Base.
  3. Peppermint Style Body

Initial Shell Stitch line:-

R1: With Bone Color (Base Color- BC). Chain 5.

R2: Double Crochet (DC) in the 4th chain from the hook, DC in the 5th chain in the hook. (A shell is created) Do not cut the yarn; do not turn.

R3: Chain 5, DC in the 4th and 5th ch as in R2.

Repeat R3 or keep adding shells to the line 16 more times. Do not cut the yarn.  Total 18 shells, 36 DC, 18 ch-3 space.

Expansion of the Open Base:-

R1: Join Autumn Red (Contrast Color-CC) on the right side (RS); (Ch 2, DC, Ch 2, 2DC) in the 1st ch-3 space. Make [V stitch]¹ on every ch-3 space. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 72 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

R2: Continue with CC on the wrong side (WS); Slip Stitch on 1st DC. Ch 3, [V stitch]¹ in the 1st ch-2 space, DC in DC, *Skip 2 stitches, DC in next stitch, [V stitch]¹ in ch-2 space, DC in DC*; repeat *-* till the end. Skip the last stitch. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 108 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

R3: RS: Slip Stitch on 1st DC. Ch 3, DC in next DC, [V stitch]¹ in the 1st ch-2 space, DC in 2 DC, *Skip 2 stitches, DC in 2 DC, [V stitch]¹ in ch-2 space, DC in 2 DC*; repeat *-* till the end. Skip the last stitch. Turn. Total 18 V stitches, 144 DC, 18 ch-2 space.

Peppermint Style Body:-

R1: using Base color (carrying CC in the back), Ch 2, DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 space, DC in 4 DC; *with CC in front and BC in back (DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 sp, DC in 4 DC), with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 4 DC, 2 DC in ch-2 sp, DC in 4 DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 10 DC.Turn. Total 180 DC. 90 BC- DC, 90 CC-DC.

R2: Using CC in front and BC in back; Ch 2, DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC; *with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC), with CC in front and BC in back (DC in 9 DC, 2DC in next DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 11 DC.Turn. Total 198 DC. 99 BC- DC, 99 CC-DC.

R3: Using BC in front and CC in back; Ch 2, DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC; *with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC), with BC in front and CC in back (DC in 10 DC, 2DC in next DC)*; repeat *-* till the end, ending with CC 12 DC.Turn. Total 216 DC. 108 BC- DC,108 CC-DC.

Repeat R2- R3 till you get the desired diameter. I aimed for 50″.

¹[V Stitch] – (2 DC, Ch 2, 2DC) in same chain space.

Caution Section:-

  1. This tree skirt contains 2 colours divided into alternate Red and Bone colour 6 times.
  2. Make sure the next row should match the colour sequence of the previous row.
  3. Carry the other colour in the back to avoid knots and joining of the yarn.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • The diameter of the tree skirt: 50″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • You can add a different colour edging to the tree skirt.
  • The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
  • Instead of regular yarn, fur yarn will bring out a pop to the border.
  • Instead of going for a different colour for the border, use both the base colours around for alternate rows.
    • The border shouldn’t be too broad to pop out. The purpose should be to provide a clean edge.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Santa Sons Earflap Hat for Toddler - Knot My Designs

Santa Sons Earflap Hat

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Santa Claus Lane.
 
Vixen, Blitzen, all his reindeer
Pulling on the reins.
Bells are ringing, children singing,
All is merry and bright.
Hang your stockings and say a prayer,
‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

Christmas is here. All kids are waiting for Santa who’ll get them the presents they wished for. He’ll bring the joy, the wish, the happiness and make this Christmas more jovial. Who was the real Santa? whychristmas explains the story behind our cute and chubby Santa. St.Nicholas secretly started giving gifts to poor and needy people. For one poor family, in order to get their daughters married, he dropped the bag of gold down the chimney into their house. It fell into the stocking that was drying by the fireplace.

Some people do say that Santa is a myth but whatever it is, Christmas gives everyone a reason to rekindle childhood, to be a kid and enjoy that time of the year with the family, and even though these people forgot the stories, delivering gifts to the children has been continuing.

Process:

I want to gift my two nephews a Christmas present too. So, here it is, a Santa Earflap Hat for both of my nephews. I liked the pattern from Micah Makes – Crochet Santa Hat. It is normal procedure of making an earflap hat with Half Double Crochet (HDC).

Body:-

We just need to take care of black belt formation. It should be almost at the end of the hat. Since the belt is 1″, stop your red colour yarn and work on your black yarn.

It is all about correct calculation. Check the gauge required to make 1″. Out of 6″ of the height, work 4.5″ on HDC with red, then 1″ of black and then 0.5″ red.

Belt Buckle:-

R1: With yellow yarn, ch 28; join at the beginning.

R2: Ch 1, Single Crochet (SC) for 4 chains, 3 SC in next chain, SC for 9 chains, 3 SC in next chain, SC for 4 chains, 3 SC in next chain, SC for 9 chains, 3 SC in next chain. Join at the beginning.

Caution Section:-

  1. Calculation of the position of Black belt band is important.
  2. It will be easy if the basics hat excluding ear flaps are defined. For e.g. if the total height of the earflap hat is 8″ where 2″ is assigned for ear flaps, then the basic hat should be 6″ in height.
  3. Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the black belt can be set.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the ear flap head: 6″
  • Height of the flap: 2″
  • Circumference: 18″-20″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • you can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

But I do not think we need to go for any other additional anymore. The Santa costume captured in the hat is enough to enjoy.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Christy Moss Slouch Hat for Christmas for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Christy Moss Slouch Hat

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Silent night, holy night,
Bethlehem sleeps, yet what light,
Floats around the heavenly pair;
Songs of angels fill the air.
Strains of heavenly peace.

In continuation of our conversation around traditions and customs of Christmas, this time, I am talking about Christmas Carols.

Carols meant singing and dancing and ultimately enjoying. Earlier people followed it throughout the year, but slowly this trend was lost with time and carols got more associated with Christmas. You might have heard about singing pagan songs, Angels Hymn that defined singing Christmas Carols for the generations. Later in 1600’s, the carol singing started gaining popularity with orchestras and choirs. They composed new songs and till today people follow it religiously at every home on the Christmas Eve.

As promised, I decided to make a slouch hat for an adult woman for Christmas. I have already shared Santa Claus Hat for men, Cherry Wherry Slouch Hat for an adult woman. Time to celebrate this Christmas in style with the classic red and white Crochet Christy Moss slouchy hat for women. Bring style, season n comfort together.

Process:

I liked MeladorasCreations – Moss Stitch Slouch Hat pattern for any female adult. You can wear it casually while travelling for work too. I modified it as I was looking for a Christmasy look or Christmasy effect on the hat. I avoided pom-pom to give it more subtle look. But then I did more than a few modifications.

Modifications:-

Brim:-

R1: chain 12, single crochet on a 2nd hook from the chain. Total 11 SC.

R2: Single Crochet Back Loop Only (SCBLO). Total 11 SCBLO.

Continue R2 till the circumference is 16″-18″ and it ends with an even row. Join at the beginning with Slip Stitch Crochet. Total 72 SC.

Note: The ribbing stretches by 2″-4″ depends on the crochet hook and yarn and your style.

Chain 1, single crochet around with the same white colour yarn. Total 72 SC.

Edging: on the other side work on Reverse Single Crochet / Crab stitch around.

Body:-

R1: (Change Color Red) Ch 2, Half Double crochet(HDC) across the row.

R2: (Change Color White) Ch 2, HDC on the 3rd loop of the previous stitch. Continue to the end.

R3: (Change Color Red) Ch2, HDC on the 3rd loop of the previous stitch. Continue to the end.

R4-R8: work on Moss Stitch.

After 5 rows of  Moss Stitch¹, I added 3 rows of Half Double Crochet (HDC) where the stitch is worked on the 3rd Loop or hidden loop (knit style) i.e. R1-R3.

Continue the pattern 3 times and sew at the end to create the slouch effect.

[ ¹Moss Stitch: Ch 2, Half Double Crochet Stitch (HDC), Slip Stitch (SL ST). Continue HDC, SL ST alternatively until the end of the row, join at the beginning with SL ST.]

Caution Section:-

  1. The ribbed band size depends on the target age as the circumference is made after sewing the rectangular band.
  2. Also, depending on the yarn thickness and elasticity, and crochet hook the ribbed band will stretch between 1″-3″. 
  3. Make sure the number of rows ends in an even number.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Cherry Wherry Slouch Santa Hat Free Pattern for an adult woman for Christmas - kNot mY deSigns

Cherry Wherry Slouch Santa Hat

When any kid thinks of Christmas, he thinks of Santa Claus and gifts.There are conflicting stories regarding the origin of Santa’s Costume- the Red robe with white fur border was designed by Coca Cola company.

But why Christmas explains that it was Thomas Nast from Harper’s Weekly Magazine illustration, who designed the costume. “On January 1st, 1881, Harper’s Weekly published Nast’s most famous image of Santa, complete with a big red belly, an arm full of toys and smoking a pipe!” 

In continuation to making presents for my family on the auspicious occasion of Christmas, I decided to treat myself with a white-red colour combination hat. Initially, I thought to make a simple pom-pom Santa-Claus Hat. But then I changed my mind and decided to give it a twist. I can say this is my own pattern. It is a simple easy pattern that anyone can try making for themselves. It can be made of any colour combination you like. You can add either a crochet flower or pom-pom or both as an embellishment. I gave a slouchy effect with a broader edge which can be folded or unfolded and can be used as 2 different hat styles. One you can show-off as a slouchy beanie and another one you can fold around the brim to use as a simple beanie.

Process:

Ribbed Band:-

With white yarn, Chain 16. Back Loop Single crochet for 15 chains. Continue until the band reaches the 22-23″ (i.e. 72 rows). Join the ends. Run one round of single crochet at each single crochet edge of the band with the same yarn. Do not cut the yarn. Attach red yarn and start working on the base.

Note: The ribbing stretches by 2″-4″ depends on the crochet hook and yarn and your style.

Base:-

Double Crochet On every single crochet (72). Repeat this in every row till the hat is 3-4″ or repeat up till 10 rows. Start decreasing 6 stitches evenly till the end round contains 12 DC. This means that

1: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 5th and 6th DC in the row. Total DC left = 60.

2: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 4th and 5th DC in the row. Total DC left = 48.

3: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 3rd and 4th DC in the row. Total DC left = 36.

4: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 2nd and 3rd DC in the row. Total DC left = 24.

5: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 1st and 2nd DC in the row. Total DC left = 12. Sew the ends.

Caution Section:-

  1. The ribbed band size depends on the target age as the circumference is made after sewing the rectangular band.
  2. Also, depending on the yarn thickness and elasticity, and crochet hook the ribbed band will stretch between 1″-3″. 
  3. Make sure the number of rows ends in an even number.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • Circumference: 23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Unisex Crochet Santa Claus's Hat Free Pattern - kNot mY deSigns

Santa Claus’s Hat

Men have a defined sense of fashion and it stays with them throughout and rarely changes. No external factor including women can change this. It could be almost a struggle to bring change in their fashion and make them try out something new. This phenomenon, however, changes in the case of technology. In fact, men would conform to latest updates and gadgets in the market.

Women, on the other hand, embellish their clothing with a lot of addendums like a pom-pom, ruffles, tassels, frills, lace, ribbons, which is seemingly absent in men’s clothing. And I can not disagree further. Any accessory would be a contrast to their masculinity and feel lesser manly.  However, there is an exception to this when it comes to the pompom on the red and white Santa Claus Hat. After all, it’s Christmas Eve!; the festive season, when everyone is anxiously waiting for gifts. Kids are lingering around for Santa to come and hand over their presents, which they have wished for! While everyone is being impish wearing Santa Hat, Elf hat, elf shoes and reindeer horns, men in the family have to join too.

Merry Christmas Everyone! HO! HO! HO!

Process:

The procedure contains Double Crochet (DC), Half Double Crochet (HDC) and a big pom-pom in 3 sections.

  1. Body
  2. Brim
  3. Pompom

Body:-

R1: Started with a magic circle, and 8 Double Crochet stitches (DC).Total 8 DC.

R2: Instead of increasing 2 DC on every DC in next row, I increased by 4 stitches in the 2nd row. *2 DC in next DC, DC in next DC*; repeat *-*. Total 12 DC.

R3: Repeat the row. Total 12 DC.

R4: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 2 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 16 DC.

R5: Repeat R4. Total

R6: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 3 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 20 DC.

R7: Repeat R6. Total

R8: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 4 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 24 DC.

R9: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 5 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 28 DC.

R10: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 6 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 32 DC.

Continue increasing every row by 4 till your hat circumference is 22-23. I have increased gradually till 84 DC.

Note: The total counts should be greater than 60 for an adult hat. It depends on the yarn, chosen crochet hook and your strength applied in each stitch.

R11: Continued 84DC for 8 more rows.

Brim:-

R1: Changed the yarn to white and start creating the brim by using Half Double Crochet (HDC) in each DC.

R2: Continue it till the brim length is 2-3″ i.e. 8-11 HDC.

Finishing: Cut the yarns and sew all the stranded yarns.

Diff Brim Style: Instead of Single Crochet (SC) or HDC, you can go for alternate Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC), Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) to create a ribbed brim. No edging.

Pom-Pom:-

Create a big pompom and attach to the starting row.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 14″
  • Circumference: 23″-24″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • For edging, you can use white fur, Crab Stitch or Slip Stitch.
  • The complete Santa hat can be made using DC with the last row of edging.
  • Instead of white yarn, you can use white fur yarn to create the brim.
  • You can insert the Santa Belt in the intersection of red and white yarn.
    • For that reduce the Red yarn rows by 4 and DC across using black yarn. Total 84 Black Yarn DC.
    • Create Santa Belt Buckle and stitch it to the hat.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Baby Football Cocoon - kNot mY deSigns

Baby Football Cocoon

A baby; an infant; a little one; a newborn; is coming to this beautiful planet. You start thinking of names, checking out the kid’s section in the mall, setting up a plan for decorating the kid’s room, begin searching for parenting tips in the bookstores, and even start observing other parents. Your whole life is about to change; the priorities; the schedule; the life everything is going to change. You are going to have a whole new experience and indeed lots and lots of beautiful moments.

To capture one such moment, I planned to present a special handmade gift to my younger nephew. A baby football cocoon. I have already mentioned about the Toddler’s Football Earflap hat. Since I was planning to make a duo crochet gift for the brothers, I chose America football theme. This is my first attempt to make a cocoon for a baby and I am happy that it came out alright.

At present, the beanie is part of the cocoon’s body. We can also remove the body and use the head of the cocoon as separate beanie!

Process:

The cocoon can be divided into 2 parts:

  1. Beanie
  2. Cocoon body

Beanie:-

The beanie process is simple. It’s basic Half Double Crochet Stitch (HDC) with white and chocolate yarn changed as required.

Starting from a magic circle and 8 Half Double Crochet (HDC), extend every row (up to row 6) by 8 counts till you get 48 HDC.

With White colour yarn, extend 1 more row (i.e. row 7) by 8 counts to get 56 HDC. Continue 56 HDC for 3 more rows.

Change back to chocolate yarn, continue 56 DC to reach the height of the hat to 7.5″.

Cocoon Body:-

The pattern is taken from Celeste’s Here In the Waiting Place – Crochet Football Cocoon Hat. I have increased the chain stitches and no. of rows to make a slightly bigger.

Caution Section:-

  • Calculation of the position of the white band is important.
  • It will be easy if the basics hat excluding ear flaps are defined. For e.g. if the total height of the earflap hat is 8″ where 2″ is assigned for ear flaps, then the basic hat should be 6″ in height.
  • Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the white band can be set.
  • Similarly, follow the same caution for cocoon. The positioning of the white band and the football seam along with the knowledge of the gauge will reduce the rework.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the football beanie: 7.5″
  • Circumference of the football beanie: 16″-18″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

  • Height of the football cocoon: 22″
  • The circumference of the football cocoon: 22″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter of the beanie to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour.  Link to make the pompom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to add more cuteness.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Gramp's Football Theme Beanie free pattern for winter/fall season - Knot My Designs

Gramp’s Football Theme Beanie

Who says that themed beanies or scarves are only made for children and teens? When you are a grandfather or a grandmother, you have every right to wear themed based accessories along with your grandsons and granddaughters. I imagined the same when I started with the idea of making an American Football Theme beanie for grandpa. Following the Football theme, I had already created a Toddler Football Flap Beanie and Baby Football Cocoon. Thus, making a Football beanie for grandpa was an easy decision. They can wear during football season or at Halloween or Thanksgiving! All you need is a good family photo capturing the moments and embracing it forever.

Process:

It is simple Double Crochet stitch (DC) beanie with rows of white to create American Football theme. I have not added the stitches so that it doesn’t look extremely kiddish for grandpa. It can be easily worn on many occasions too. They can wear it anytime they want. The height of the beanie is 9.5″ and the hat circumference is 22-23″. It can be carried as slouch beanie depending on the person’s head size.

Body:-

R1: Started with a magic circle, and 12 Double Crochet stitches (DC), join at the beginning. Total 12 DC.

R2: Ch 2, *2 DC in each DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 24 DC.

R3: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 36 DC.

R4: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 2 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 48 DC.

R5: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 3 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 60 DC.

Note: The total counts should be greater than 60 for an adult hat. It depends on the yarn, chosen crochet hook and your strength applied in each stitch.

R6: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 4 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 72 DC.

R7: DC in each DC, join at the beginning. Total 72 DC.

R8-R9: Change to white colour. Repeat R7.

R10-R15: Change to the base colour. Repeat R7.

R16-R17: Change to white colour. Repeat R7.

R18: Change to the base colour. Repeat R7.

Caution Section:-

  • Calculation of the position of the white bands is important.
  • It will be easy if the basics of the hat’s height are defined. For e.g. if the total height of the hat is 9″ and white band is about 1″ thick then the placement of the white band should be after 3″  and 8″ approx. 
  • Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the white band can be set.
  • The positioning of the white bands and the football stitch seam along with the knowledge of the gauge will reduce the rework.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 9.5″
  • Circumference: 22″-23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • For edging, you can use base colour fur, Crab Stitch or Slip Stitch or Herringbone Half Double Crochet(HHDC).
  • You can add the Football stitching in between the hat with white yarn. I avoided the stitch to the hat for multi-occasion.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
