Crochet Heat Pack Pattern

Hi Everyone!

With the colder weather there are always complaints about body aches and a cold bed, so I decided to make some heat packs to fight this problem. I used some rice that I had at home and some left over fabric to make the heat pack itself and then crocheted a cover for the heat pack so it doesn’t get too hot when you microwave it.

Here is the pattern:

Materials
5.00 mm (H) Hook
Worsted/Aran Weight Yarn
Tapestry Needle
Stitch Marker
Fabric
Rice or Beans
Buttons (Optional)

Pattern
Heat Pack Pouch
Chain 29 (Chain until you have the correct width of your heat pack)
Row 1: DC into 2nd CH from hook and till end. Turn (27)
Row 2: CH 1. DC till end (27)
Repeat Row 2 until you piece measures double the length of your heat pack.

Once you have the correct length, then you will fold the piece in half and SC around the sides of the pouch to sew it together.

Note: If you would like a button or a flap for your pouch you will not match the folded piece exactly together, but you will leave a little bit of unsewn pouch for the button holes. You can see some examples of how you can do this in the pictures of this post.

Note: If you do not want a button flap, you will sew the sides of the piece together, insert your heat pack and then SC around the end of the pouch together to seal the heat pack inside.

If you do not have a heat pack here are the instructions to make a heat pack and then you can make a pouch for it or you can make a pouch and sew a heat pack to size.

Heat Pack
Cut out one piece of fabric that measures to the size of the heat pack you want when it is folded in half. Sew two sides of the fabric together, leaving the smallest side of the piece opened. Once that is completed, flip the piece inside out and fill with rice or beans and then sew the remaining side together. This completes your heat pack.

Note: Do not heat up your heat pack too much or you may get burned. I usually heat mine up for 1 and a half minutes in the microwave, but you may have to adjust the time depending on your microwave.

Enjoy your own heat pack for any aches and during this cold winter weather.

Note: My feet are about a Size 5.5/6 North American so you can increase or decrease after or before Round 5 to make a wider and narrower sock. For a longer or shorter sock you would do more or less rounds of Rounds 19 – 44.

I think these socks turned out well and would be perfect for these upcoming colder months.

Crochet Collar Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Today’s post will be a pattern I used to create a collar that can add a little change to your outfits. I used the pattern from Nicole’s Mindless One Skein Scarf and adjusted it so I could make it into a collar. The pattern is super simple and looks really pretty. I had made the scarf previously and liked the way it looked so decided to use the pattern for a collar.

PA292693.jpg

Here is the pattern:

Materials
5.00 mm (H) Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn
Yarn Needle
Scissors

Pattern
Nicole’s pattern says to chain in multiples of 3 then add 4 more chains to that. For this headband I chained 76 times (72+4) for a tight, but slightly loose fit. You can adjust the number of chains for the right size for your head. Once you figure out the number of chains you need, then you will follow Nicole’s pattern and do Row 2 from the pattern 2 times after completing Row 1!

That’s it! Easy peasy! You can choose any time of button you want for the front and sew the ends of the piece together with the button or use a smaller button so that you can use one of the holes from the finished collar as the button hole.

Enjoy making many of these for yourself or to give away!
