Happy Easter Cross Stitch Pattern (Free)

Hi Everyone!

As you know I have learning to cross stitch recently and wanted to give making patterns a try. I found this website called Stitch Fiddle that allows you to create your own patterns and share them with others. It is mostly free, but if you want to have a little more options you can pay a small yearly fee for it. You can also create crochet and knitting patterns on it so I thought it was a great idea! For my second pattern I made an Easter themed cross stitch pattern. It is pretty simple since I am just starting out, but I think it is a nice springy little pattern for beginners. You can find the pattern here.

Here is the completed pattern framed:

I added the hearts, eggs, and flowers to add some spring touches and used pale colours to soften the piece. This was my first framed cross stitch pattern so feel free to give me any pointers and enjoy stitching away.

Happy Easter and thank you for stopping by my blog!

Take care,

Crochet Bunny Hat and Diaper Cover Free Pattern

Hi Everyone!

It is almost the long weekend and time for Easter! I received some free fuzzy pink yarn recently and was wondering what I could make with it. Then I thought since it is almost Easter, I would make a bunny rabbit baby set with a hat and diaper cover. I thought it would be difficult to crochet with this yarn, but if you don’t have to undo it, it crochets like any other yarn. This is my first time designing a diaper cover pattern so there were some sections that I had to redo and adjust. I also adjusted the baby hat pattern for the bunny hat and made some ears to add on top.

My First Cross Stitch Project

Hi Everyone!

It is always fun to try out a new craft and find out you really enjoy it! Today I want to share with you my very first cross stitch project. I had gotten some cross stitch kits before, but always thought it would be really hard to do. Then I saw some other mini cross stitch kits on my trip to the UK at their Hobby Craft store and decided to finally give it a try. This little kit is small so it will be finished quickly and if you are just starting out, it won’t scare you away. Cross stitching is really relaxing and something I want to do when I am not crocheting or knitting.

Here are the project pictures:

The instructions for this project are pretty clear, but I did look up some beginner videos on the basics of cross stitch while I was starting the project. I also think that I have a lot to learn and am really excited to try something a little harder and maybe a little bigger for my next project.

Thank you for stopping by my blog!

Knitted Hat with Pom Pom Pattern

Hi Everyone!

This week I want to share with you a knitted hat pattern that uses the same Loops and Threads Facet yarn that I used in last weeks infinity scarf pattern. I tried some decreasing with this pattern and think it turned out alright. I need to practice decreasing more to make it look perfectly round, but I think it looks round enough for my first try.

DSC03154_wmDSC03170_wm

Here is the pattern:

Materials
Super Bulky Yarn (~60 metres/60 yards)
10.0 mm (US 15) Knitting Needles
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Pattern
CO 54 STs.
Row 1 – 4: K2, P2 till end of row (54)
Row 5: Knit till end of row (54)
Row 6: Purl till end of row (54)
Repeat Row 5 and 6 ten times for a total of 20 rows of stockinette stitch.
Row 25: *(K11, K2TOG)* Repeat from * to * three times then K9, K2TOG (50)
Row 26: Purl till end of row (50)
Row 27: *(K10, K2TOG)* Repeat from * to * three times then K8, K2TOG(46)
Row 28: Purl till end of row (46)
Row 29: *(K9, K2TOG)* Repeat from * to * three times then K7, K2TOG (42)
Row 30: Purl till end of row (42)
Row 31 – 34: Repeat Row 5 and Row 6 two times each for a total of 4 rows of stockinette stitch.
Cast off. Leaving a long tail to sew the top and sides of the hat together. To sew up the sides of the hat, use the mattress stitch or any other sewing techniques you prefer.

Optional Pom Pom
Use a medium or large plastic pom pom maker (6.35 cm (2 1/2-inch) or 8.59 cm (3 3/8-inch)), a forkyour fingers, or a cardboard pom pom maker. Tie finished pom pom onto the top of the hat.
The pom pom is optional, but I think it makes the hat look nicer and more fun.

That’s the pom pom knitted hat pattern. This roving yarn is so soft and easy to use and since it is super bulky, the projects are completed really quickly.

Two Skein Knitted Infinity Scarf Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Happy New Year! It is the beginning of the year and it is still quite cold so this two skeined knitted infinity scarf will help with the chill in the air. I used some really soft Loops and Threads Facets yarn for this project and completed it with just two skeins of it, including sewing the edges together.

Here is the pattern:

Materials
Two Skeins of Super Bulky Yarn (110 Metres/120 Yards each)
10.0 mm (US 15) Knitting Needles
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Pattern
CO 30 STs.
Row 1: Knit till end of row (30)
Row 2: Purl till end of row (30)
Repeat Row 1 and Row 2 until you have used up most of the yarn.
Cast off, leaving a long tail to sew the ends together.

To sew the ends of the scarf together, you can use the mattress stitch or any other type of sewing methods that you prefer.

As you can see, this pattern is very simple and just uses the basics of knitting to complete.

Knitting Hat/Toque Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Need a last minute Christmas gift? I have the perfect pattern for you. This knitted hat uses bulky yarn and size 10.0 mm knitting needles so it will be worked up quickly. I used Loops and Threads Charisma yarn for this project, but you can use whatever bulky yarn you want to complete this hat.

4-2_wm1-3_wm

Here is the pattern:

Materials
10.0 mm (US 15) Knitting Needles
Bulky Yarn
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Pattern
CO 48 STs.
Row 1: Knit till end (48)
Row 2: Purl till end (48)

Repeat Row 1 and 2 until your piece measures the circumference of your head.  For the hat I made, I stopped after it measured 40 cm (16 inches) long and casted off.

Cast Off. Leave long tail to sew the sides and the tops of the hat together. I used the mattress stitch to sew the sides of the hat and just stitched the top of the hat until there were not holes anymore to complete the hat.

5-1_wm2-2_wm

Once you finish sewing the hat together you can weave in the ends.  I decided not to add a pom pom to this hat, but you can make some pom poms and attach it to the top of the hat to add a cute touch to the hat. I discuss pom pom making in the newborn Santa hat pattern.

Done! This hat is very basic so it will make the perfect last minute Christmas present! Have fun making your own bulky yarn knitted hat.
