• Melanie Ham’s Bobble Stitch Toque Pattern

    Hi Everyone! Happy Canada Day! I recently got a new desktop computer and am so impressed with the speed of it! Now I can do lots of stuff rather quickly, like finding new patterns to try  out, like Melanie Ham’s Slouchy Hat Pattern. I usually have trouble creating the proper slouch for a hat, but Melanie’s pattern was easy to follow and the hat I made created a slouch that was not too limp and fit perfectly. Here are some pictures of the finished product: View fullsize View fullsize I really like this smaller bobble for the hat and it was really fun to make. I added a couple more…

  • 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.

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…

  • 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…
