What I love about this beanie is that the brim and the main body of the hat are crocheted in different directions – but don’t worry, it’s easier than it sounds!

It’s available as a Ravelry download here.

You will need:

Yarn in colour(s) of your choice

5 mm hook

Tapestry needle

Pattern written in UK terms but translation as follows:

FPTR (front post treble crochet) – US front post double crochet. Tutorial here in US terms from Meladora (love her videos).

*****************

To begin, we start with the main body of the hat. Chain 71 and join with a slip stitch.

2014/59 – colourful coasters

So during one of my sessions drooling over pinterest, I found this adorable pattern from a Swedish(?) crocheter who made some really pretty (and presumably absorbant) coasters.

Don’t they look great?

She’s posted it in US terms but there’s a diagram showing what she did which looks fairly easy to follow so you don’t really need to worry too much about terminology.

Find it here:

2014/58 – gorgeous trendy collar

Simply crochet recently posted a free pattern for a quirky collar you can add to your tops and dresses for a bit of flair. I absolutely love it, it looks so cute!

And it’s REALLY simple!

It’s another that I think would work really well with beads, sequins, ostentatious buttons or glitz. Plus, trying it in  bold colours would bring some quirkiness to an outfit and make a statement, perhaps red collar on a blye shirt/dress?

2014/57 – shoe decoration patterns

Our special friend Jane has done it again! She’s designed some really cute shoe embelllishments in the shape of little flowers.

Don’t they look great?

She’s given a tutorial (in UK terms) for some really easy little flowers to try as well as what you can see in the picture.

Take a look!
