Griddle Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch

With the advent of spring come the life and the colours. Trees that looked withered in winters are full of life; flowers blossom creating a mystic view. As if someone has painted the world around. Remember the Cherry Blossom tree?

I captured this from a Cherry Blossom Festival. This festival is celebrated every year from March 15- April 20, in various states of the US. It is celebrated as a token of friendship with Japan. Cherry trees, also called “Sakura” in Japanese, were planted in Sakura Park, Manhattan in 1912. It was sowed across the eastern US and San Diego over the years.

Cherry Blossoms

P.C. Missouri Cherry Blossom Festival

 

In Japan, Hanami (flower viewing) is a traditional custom celebrated every year during this season. It is to remind us about the changing seasons and inspire us to adopt and adapt to the change. After a harsh winter, the leaves, the buds, the flowers blossom to greet the new season.

The pictures and its colours motivated me to bring this look in a mobile wristlet pouch. I used peach –the shade most resembling the cherry blossoms– as the base colour and white edging to give a feel of the white snow melting off the edges of the tree branches.

Process:

This pouch is created from the bottom to top, and to do this we start with the 1st row by turning the cover inside out. Once done, we change back to right side and start with the edge. I added a crocheted loop on one side of the mobile cover to tie wristlet band. I also stitched the button and loop on the cover to close the opening.

The pattern is series of Single Crochet stitch(SC) and Double Crochet stitch(DC) alternatively.

R1: Starting with chain 35, join at the initial chain to form the loop. Total 35 chains.

R2: Ch 1, *SC, DC*; repeat *-* throughout the row ending with SC and join at the ch 1. Total 35 stitches, 18 SC, 17 DC.

R3: Ch 1, *DC in previous SC, SC in previous DC*; repeat *-* throughout the row ending with DC and join at ch 1. Total 35 stitches, 18 DC, 17 SC.

Repeat R2 and R3 alternatively till you achieve the desired height.

Brim with side loop:-

R1: Change the yarn to white and continue R3 for 1 row. Total 35 SC.

R2: Chain 3, SC from 1st stitch from the previous row. Total 35 SC, 3 Chain.

R3: SC around including 3 SC in the chain. Total 38 SC.

Brim without side loop:-

R1: Change to white colour, single crochet (SC) around. Total 35 SC.

Continue R1 for 4 rows and sew the end.

Crochet Wristlet: Chain 60-70 based on the wristlet length. Sew the ends in the inside of the pouch.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 6.5″
  • Width: 3″
  • Wristlet Size = 9″-10″ with 60-70 chains.
  • Button Loop Size = 2.5″-3″ is obtained by chaining 20.

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

Optional Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

Remember: do not overdo it. This takes away the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Quotidian Tote Bag Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Quotidian Tote Bag

Every year we spend thousands to replenish our wardrobe; throw away some of the old to embrace new. The newness instils excitement and freshness taking away the dullness and boredom.

It is a great therapy for boosting the morale and keeping things lively, be it the house or one’s life. However, this investment towards the change often ends up digging a deep hole into our pockets, making us wonder would be there a more affordable way to do this?

The answer is in the accessories. These pocket-friendly small trinkets can do magic if matched rightly. Look at the handbags such as. These have been one of the best ways to define the style statement.

For me a handbag is everything. A ladies handbag is always a mystery to men, of course, it goes without saying that unlike them, we never travel light. We have a wallet, mobile, keys, makeup kit, medicine kit, notebook, pen, a bottle, a small umbrella and the list never ends.

With similar thoughts, I decided to make an every day ( i.e. quotidian ) tote bag for my best buds (3+1). I wanted this bag to be funky yet subtle, so I used funky colours and contrasted them with a simple pattern and honed texture. Great to carry along in a mall for shopping, to the office, or even at a casual occasion like catching up a friend or going to beachside; just grab this tote bag and head towards your destination.

I played a little game with my buds, I had four colours in my mind. I attached these colours and assigned a number to each from 1-4. Each of them picked a number and voila that’s the colour they are flaunting now.

Process:

The process is very simple. I used cotton yarn to make this bag. Crochet stitch is a series of a Single-Crochet pattern made in a spiral pattern running around each other in a circle from bottom to top. The handles add up in a seamless form. The Edge is also made in a Single-Crochet series. The process is divided into 4 parts:

  1. Base
  2. Body
  3. Handles
  4. Edging

Base:-

R1: Starting with a magic circle, Ch 1, Single Crochet (SC) 6 times; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 6 SC.

R2: Ch 1, 2 Single Crochet (SC) in one SC; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 12 SC.

R3: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 18 SC.

R4: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 2 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 24 SC.

R5: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 3 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 30 SC.

R6: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 4 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 36 SC.

R7: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 5 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total  42 SC.

R8: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 6 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 48 SC.

R9: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 7 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 54 SC.

R10: Ch 1, *2 Single Crochet (SC) in SC, SC in 8 SC *; repeat *-*; join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 60 SC.

R11 – R20: Repeat for another 10 rows in the same manner. Total 120 SC.

Remember: The diameter of the base should depend on the width of the Tote bag you are looking for. I aimed for 9″.

Body:-

R21 – R60: Single Crochet around. Total 120 SC.

Repeat the last row till the tote bag reaches to the desired length.

Handle:-

Handle Marks – Count 30 stitch put a marker. Use one marker for every 30th stitch. There will be 4 marks on the body of the bag.

R61: Ch1, Single Crochet (SC) 30 stitches. turn. Total 30 SC.

R62: Ch1, Single Crochet Together (SCTOG), SC 26 stitches, SCTOG. turn8. Total 28 SC.

R63: Ch1, SCTOG, SC 24 stitches, SCTOG. turn. Total 26 SC.

R64: SCTOG, SC 22 stitches, SCTOG. turn. Total 24 SC.

R65 – R72: Repeat decreasing the stitch count by 2 till you reach 6 SC.

R73: Ch 1, Single Crochet, turn. Total 6 SC.

R74 – R154: Repeat R73.

OR 6 Single Crochet for 80 rows.

R155: Ch 1, 2 SC in SC, SC 4, 2 SC in SC; turn. Total 8 SC.

R156: Ch1, 2 Sc in SC, SC 6, 2 SC in SC; turn. Total 10 SC.

R157 – R167: Repeat increasing the stitch count by 2 till you reach 30 SC.

R168: Ch 1, SC in SC. Total 30 SC.

R169: Straighten out the handle. Slip Stich with the body of the bag between 3rd and 4th markers. Cut and sew the stranding yarn.

Edging:-

R170: Join the yarn, Ch 1, SC from 2nd marker side of the handles to 3rd marker. Cut and sew the stranded yarns.

R171: Join the yarn, Ch 1, SC from 4th marker side of the handles to 1st marker. Cut and sew the stranded yarns.

Caution Section:-

  1. Take precaution while making the handles. The handle stretches as the weight of the bag increases. Unless you are using faux leather, suede, fabric or something else (which do not have much elasticity); the handle/s should be smaller.
  2. The overall bag usually expands because of the elasticity of the yarn; unless you provide a lining inside the bag.
  3. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn vary the diameter of the base.
  4. The crochet hook recommended vs the crochet hook used defines the design.
  5. The total number of stitches per row is different for SC, HDC, DC etc.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Diameter of the base: 9″
  • The height of the bag: 9″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can use a crochet chain, ribbon, resin strap, snap-button or even a zip for the pouch drawstring.
  • Pom-pom, tassels, charms, miniature idols, mini toys, amulets make a good match for the colour with the edging or the base colour.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.

Remember: do not overdo it. This takes away the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegant simplicity!!

Crochet Oblong Shell Stash Basket for Yarn - Knot My Designs

Oblong Shell Stash Basket

Increasing office space, ordering more raw materials etc. indicates growing business. Similarly, the need of another stash basket hinted at the growth of my work as I started collecting more and more yarn.

I already have a big Laundry basket full of wool. But it wasn’t enough to manage the stoke pile that was ending up lying around everywhere in the house. I do not own a separate crafts room in my current house, so I had to push myself to hold the current project to first make space and create another Stash Basket for myself.

I already have created a Stash Basket of Yarn. But I was not planning to create the same pattern again. I would take the blame that I do not like to replicate my work, rather add variety, unless ordered, to make the same thing. This always becomes helpful too!

Here, comes another pattern in the list of baskets for yarn. Every product is different and unique, so when you think storage and style and comfort, think about Oblong Shell Stash Basket from Knot My Designs.

Process:

I collected all left over yarns having the same crochet hook recommendation and then started working on constructing a new design. The procedure contains 2 parts: Base and Body

Base:-

At the base, I used all the leftover yarns to create a circular mat of 120sc (i.e. Single crochet stitch). Starting from 6sc and increasing 6 sc in every round up to 120sc. The picture shows various yarns I have used and completed.

Tip: Join all the left over yarns to create a big ball using Russian Join” method. This is the flawless and easy way to provide a seamless continuation of the yarn.

Body:-

There has been a lot of attempts in getting this final look.

Attempt 1: Continuing with Single crochet. This was giving me closed basket look which I wasn’t looking for at all.

Attempt 2: Following the same approach of the previous Stash Basket, I started with Double Crochet (DC). Instead of one SC and 5 ch, I worked on 3 DC and 5 Ch for one row. Then SC around next row and DC in the next and SC again in the next row. This completely distracted the synchronous flow from SC Base to DC Body.

Attempt 3: Continued SC up to 5 rows and then start using DC stitch. This was way too awkward and indescribable to me.

Attempt 4: I started browsing crochet stitches pattern from The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs. I decided to make Page139 – Shells- overall Patterns. SUCCESS!!! There is slight modification as this is going in circles with no turn at the end of each row.

Shell Overall Pattern:

R1: DC, *ch5, skip next 5ch, dc in each of next 3 sc; repeat from * ending with DC. SS to join.

R2: Ch 3 (count as DC), *9 DC in each ch-5 space, skip 3 DC; repeat from * ending with DC. SS join.

R3: Ch 5, Skip 4DC, DC in each next 3 DC, *ch 5, skip next 6 DC, DC in each of next 3 DC; repeat from * ending with 4 sts, ch 2, skip next 3 DC, DC in the 3rd ch of the previous round.

R4: Ch 3 (counts as DC), 4 DC in next ch-2 space, *9 DC in each ch-5 space, skip 3 DC; repeat from * ending with 4 DC in ch-2 space, DC in the 3rd ch of the previous round.

Repeat R3-R4 till you get the desired height of the basket. I have used 3 different yarns and changed them after 6 rows.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose crochet hook larger than recommended one to give a smooth and open stitch.

 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 14″
  • Diameter: 12″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement. This bag expands further 4-5″ for wool to insert properly.
  • You can insert a liner inside the basket if you are keeping small items, to avoid falling off.
  • You can add pom-pom, tassels, charms, miniature idols, mini toys, amulets etc matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.

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

Crochet Naming Alphabet Appliques Free Pattern on Baskets for Home Decor - Knot My Designs

Naming Alphabet Appliques

In a growing family, in order to avoid clutter, it is best to use boxes or sections to keep the items arranged rather than lying around. For cold regions, as soon as winter approaches, the winter accessories (scarves, mittens, cowls, beanies, hats, gloves etc.) are all out for daily use. The best way to keep them organized is to box them.

That’s what my sister decided, and she bought a few clothed boxes to keep them in the mudroom. Now, with the increase in the number of accessories, it became necessary to label them. So, I decided to sew the names on each of the boxes for each family member. Embroidering the alphabets was time taking and gave me the idea for making appliques using crochet. I created alphabet appliques depicting the first letter of their names.

Now there are different ways to label them. Stickers, Fabric paint, Stencil Alphabets, Alphabet appliques made of fabric etc.

Process:

Thankfully there were patterns online to help me to try a few. I could have sat n wrote the pattern myself. But due to time constraints, I started looking for the pattern online. I liked the Moogly Crochet Alphabet Appliques. “A”, “K” and “S” followed a similar link. “I” is simple single crochet stitches for 2-3 rows.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Size a single applique: 3″-4″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • You can give a defined edging.
  • 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 accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet White Snow Slippers/Socks Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

White Snow Slippers/Socks

“Happy Feet”,”The Chronicles of Narnia”, “Frozen”; pick any movie and you will realize the beauty of snow in these movies. Snowflakes, snow crystals, graupel, ice pellets etc whichever is the form of the frozen crystallized water; they are stupendous. The magnificent glaciers, the majestic view carries us away.

As spectacular or glorious as it looks; snowfall gets tough for the survival when this freezing weather continues for months. You are stuck in your own house doing nothing and waiting for skies to get clearer.

But we humans are a creative bunch, who don’t just stay hibernated in our shelter but find ways to enjoy the weather like making snow angels and snowman, skiing, sledging, making footprints, having a snowball fight, building a snow fort etc.

It is a good testimony to show that humans can face any challenge that comes in their way and live fully.

While I enjoyed playing out in the snow, making snowballs, it inspired me to make a white coloured Slippers/Socks for home.

Process:

The pattern is simple. I started with single crochet(SC) as Roller Slippers. Instead of continuing the process, I switched to Double crochet(DC) stitch for completing with mid to heel.

The pattern contains 3 parts:

  1. Foot
  2. Heel
  3. Leg

Foot:-

R1: Starting with a magic circle, Ch 1, Single Crochet (SC) 6 times, join at the beginning with a Slip Stitch (SL ST). Total 6 SC.
R2: Ch 1, 2 SC in SC, join at the beginning with SL ST. Total 12 SC.

R3: Ch 1, *2 SC in SC, SC in SC*; repeat *-* join at the beginning with SL ST. Total 18 SC.

R4 – R6: Ch1, 1 SC in each SC. Total 18 SC.

R7: Ch 1, *2 SC in SC, SC in 2 SC*; repeat *-* join at the beginning with SL ST. Total 24 SC.

R8: Ch1, 1 SC in each SC. Total 24 SC.

Repeat R8 until you gain 5.5″. Do not cut the yarn. Proceed towards heel section.

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Skinny Boots Slippers/Socks Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Skinny Boots Slippers/Socks

A pair of Boots, known as Fashion Boots or go-go boots, is a necessary winter footwear in the modern world, apart from being a fashion item. Ranging from ankle to thigh in length, and used as casual, formal, or business footwears, they come in large varieties.

There has been ups and downs in the journey of a working boot converting into a fashion boot. In 1960’s final, they became a style statement and interpreted “as an antidote to the femininity”.

Today, there are ankle boots, calf-length boots, knee boots, over-the-knee boots. They are made of fur, leather, rubber and suede. Over a period of time, there has been up gradation in the creation of boots from rising hemlines to zip-fastened to lace-up styles to metal accents. In today’s fashion world, people have a great sense of appreciation in carrying vintage style or latest trends. The old-fashioned boots, platform-soled boots, and even thigh-length PVC boots are popular among the female of all age groups.

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!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Sylvan Slouch Hat free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Sylvan Slouch Hat

A house with a country looks or Rustic/Sylvan interior is very attractive and pleasant to the eyes. A sculpture or wood flooring and beams provide more country feeling. Wood has always played an important element for interior designers.
 
In fashion, you can get that similar country or rustic look through accessories or clothing. People contrast their dresses with a combination of browns and whites. The wood or weathered look have always inspired me. I was planning to create a different kind of slouch hat. I started browsing online for a different pattern. After some time I felt something was missing in every pattern.

I had already created many hats and had learned a lot about stitches. It wasn’t going to be very challenging. I decided to design all by myself. The outcome was very fascinating; a hybrid between hat and beanie. Unlike the other beanies, the base of this beanie did not sit along the shape of the head. The circular base gave the look of a hat. I named this hat as Sylvan Slouch Hat.

Process:

Base:-

  1. Start with simple double crochet(DC) base. A magic ring with 12 DC.
  2. continue increasing by 12 up to 6 rows or depending on the required diameter for the crown.

Body:-

  1. 1 row of Half double crochet(HDC) around with white yarn
  2. 1 rows of HDC (knit style) around
  3. 1 row DC around with main yarn working on the 3rd/hidden loop of HDC
  4. 1 row of DC around
  5. 1 row of Back Post Double Crochet  (BPDC) around
  6.  1 row of DC with brown yarn around
  7. 1 row of Front Post Double Crochet(FPDC) with brown yarn around
    • You can with continue with 1 more round of DC around. I prefer FPDC since the brown yarn thickness was less than main yarn. I wanted to give the consistent thickness around the hat.
  8. 1 row of BPDC of main yarn around
  9. 1 row of FPDC of brown yarn around
  10. 1 row of HDC or brown yarn.

Brim/Edge:-

  1. 4 rows of Herringbone Half Double Crochet(HHDC) stitched created by Tamara from Moogly with white yarn around.

Caution Section:-

  1. 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 bands can be set.
  2. FPDC and BPDC required a bigger crochet hook or loose stitching technique to maintain the seamless look of the beanie.
  3. Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one or you can loosely stitch FPDC and BPDC.
    • Since I always do tight stitches, I choose bigger crochet hook than the recommended one. It is more of testing a couple of rows to see the flow.
  4. For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.
  5. Since the base of the crown is DC stitch, the diameter of the crown can be 5.5-6.5″ for the adult woman, depending on the target audience.  The BPDC will not reduce the crown size. 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9.5″
  • 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!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Earthy Sky Beanie Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Earthy Sky Beanie

“The beauty of the natural world lies in the details.”
— Natalie Angier
 
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
— Albert Einstein
 
“In all things of nature, there is something of the marvellous.”
— Aristotle
 
“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.”
— Charles Dickens

I always find my inspiration from my surroundings. The good part, while residing in California, is whenever you want to feel refresh just head to the beach. Whenever you feel depressed, take a walk by the beach and when you want to absorb the beauty of the sunset, you know where to go. Sunset by the beach is colourful so many shades in one big palette. I get the idea of experimenting with these colours from nature. This time while enjoying the sunset by the beach it struck me to try out a combination of earthy tone ombre and blue yarn for the beanie I was planning to make.

Malibu Sunset P C: Ankur Narain

Malibu Sunset P C: Ankur Narain

Process:

The pattern is very simple. It is a continuation of Double Crochet (DC) stitches around the beanie.

Base:-

Starting from a magic circle and 12 Double Crochet (DC), extend every row (up to row 6) by 12 counts till you get 72DC.

Continue 72 DC to reach the height of the hat to 7″. The circumference is 22″, which is the required hat size for an adult woman.

Brim:-

I created a bigger band with 6 rows of DC in the end with blue colour yarn to create 2″ brim.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 9″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″

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 a more feminine touch.

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