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.

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.

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.

Crochet Call the Midwife Newborn Baby Blanket

Hi Everyone!

It seems like everyone I know is having a baby so this week I want to share with you the Call the Midwife Newborn Baby Blanket Pattern that was designed by Rebecca of Little Monkey’s Crochet. Before I started this blanket I had never watched the TV show, but had always heard good things about it. I was definitely missing out because once I started watching it I couldn’t stop! I completed the blanket while watching the show and noticed it in many of the episodes of the show. This pattern is easy to follow and you can make it as long or wide as you want. I followed the pattern size since I was making this for a newborn baby.

I used some DK yarn in three different colours, that I got in the UK at the Hobby Craft store which is kind of like the Michael’s craft store over there. When I first started this blanket I thought I was doing it wrong since it didn’t look like the picture, but once I completed the first set of rows it started looking better. I followed Rebecca’s instructions to crochet into the chains instead of the chain spaces since I thought the stitches looked tighter that way, but that depends on how tightly you crochet and how you want the blanket to look in the end. I really enjoyed making this blanket because once you finish the first couple sets for rows you will have the pattern memorized and you can finish it quickly.

For the border of the blanket, I just did the scalloped edge pattern that I always use from Staci’s Very Pink Knit Youtube Channel and it turned out really cute. You can also follow Rebecca’s scalloped edge border pattern, but I used Staci’s pattern because I have it pretty much memorized since I use it so much. I really like how this blanket turned out and might make another one soon in a different colour.

Here are some completed blanket pictures:

This blanket was really fun to make and Rebecca’s instructions are clear and easy to follow so completing this newborn blanket was quick. This would be perfect for when you need to make a last minute present for a new baby.

Knitted Scarf Pattern (Contrasting Colours)

Hi Everyone!

This week I want to share the pattern for the second knitted scarf I made in the UK during my vacation. This one isn’t an infinity scarf like the previous pattern, but it is worked up quickly and if you like the look of the scarf you can sew the ends together to make an infinity scarf. I used the same needles and yarn for this project because I like how quickly I can finish knitting it. Here is the pattern.

13

Materials
10.0 mm (Size 15) Needles
2 Skeins of Super Bulky Yarn (I used Loops and Threads in Mushroom and Moss Green) (82 metres ((90) yards) each)
Scissors
Tapestry Needles

Abbreviations
CO – Cast On
K – Knit
P – Purl

Pattern
CO 16 Stitches.
Row 1: K1, P1. (16)
Repeat Row 1 until you are happy with the length of the scarf. For the one I made, I just knit each colour until I finished up the skein of yarn.
Cast off. Weave in ends.

147

This is a very simple pattern that can be completed very quickly. I like how the contrasting colours turned out and since there are many different colours to choose from, there are many combinations of colours that would look nice together.
