Ravelry Shoppe: Bubble Cloche

Bubble Clocke

Free pattern

It’s not that I procrastinate.  Okay, maybe I do.  But mostly it’s because I get myself so very busy that I occasionally forget something important(ish).  Like this hat.  I ❤ this hat, which I call Bubble Cloche.  I made a whole stack of them in December and January and even enlisted pattern testers!

It took a gentle reminder nudge from the fabulous Pren Wilcox for me to remember that I’d neglected this poor cute hat for these many months.

If you make a Sew Awesome Craft or any pattern, craft or recipe from sewhooked,  I’d love to see a photo.  Email me or add it to the sewhooked flickr group.

Happy crafting!

also on cut out + keep

As I walked around my local craft store last week, I noticed little Halloween displays all over the store.  Almost all of them had candy corn.

 I spent the rest of that trip repeating to myself, “You do not need candy corn!  You do not need candy corn!”

I guess you can see why I jokingly refer to candy corn as Halloween Crack!

Mellowcreme pumpkins?

One bag of those + me = sugar coma.  Danger, danger, danger!

I created an homage to those last year with my Mellowcreme Pumpkin Earrings.

To continue the homage to my favorite Halloween candies, how about a candy corn hat?  It’s easier on your teeth, works up in a jiffy and isn’t particularly hard on your yarn stash, either!

It sure as heck is easier than taking candy from a crafter baby!

You’ll need:

  • small amounts of worsted yarn in bright orange, white and bright yellow (Red Heart used in example)
  • J hook

Round 1: With white, ch 4, 11 dc in fourth ch from hook.  Join with sl st at top of beg ch 3.  (12 dc)

Round 2: sl st to the sp between the next two dc , ch 3, dc in same sp (cluster).  (2 dc) in between each dc around. (12 clusters)

Round 3: sl st to the sp between the next cluster , ch 3, 2 dc in same sp.  (3 dc) in between each cluster around. Finish off white. (12 clusters)

Round 4: With orange, join with sl st between any cluster.  ch 3, 3 dc in same sp, ch 1, (4 dc, ch1) in between each cluster around. (12 clusters)

Round 5 – 10: sl st to ch 1 space, ch 3, 3 dc in same sp, ch 1, (4 dc, ch1) in between each cluster around. (12 clusters), finish off orange at end of round 10.

Round 11:  join yellow in any stitch, ch 1, hdc in same st and each st around, including ch 1 sps.

Round 12: ch 1, hdc in same st and each st around.

Round 13: ch 1, hdc in same st , (2 hdc in next st, 1 hdc in next st), repeat ( ) around.   Finish off.

Easy as candy!

A Little Flare

add this pattern to your ravelry queue

Printable Pattern

Christmas is over, and a lovely holiday it was.  Friends, family, food, and gifts.  Perfect all around!

I find myself with lots of different bits of leftover yarn from various projects.  I can’t think of a better way to wrap up the holiday season than making lots of cute hats while I’m hanging out with my fantastic family while they play Rock Band or we watch a new movie.

This hat’s my favorite.

It’s warm, toasty and fast to make.

Use the same color yarn or coordinate two different strands for some extra cute head gear!   I’ve also used loads of little scraps tied together (as shown in the first photo) along with a solid color for a unique look.

I’ve included my pony tail variation below if you want to wear a hat, but keep your hair up!

If you want to make hats, but not necessarily keep them, consider donating them to a handmade hat charity.  Bella online has a great list of charities that will accept hand crocheted hats and other items.

You’ll need:

  • K hook
  • 2 colors of Worsted Weight Yarn (2-strands througout)

Ch 4

Row 1: Dc 11 times in 4th ch from hook.  Sl in top of ch 3 st to join.

Row 2: Ch 3, dc in same st, 2 dc in each st around.  Sl in top of ch 3 st to join.

Row 3: Ch 3, (2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st) around.  Sl in top of ch 3 st to join.

Row 4: ch 3, (2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next two sts) around.  Sl in top of ch 3 st to join.

Rows 5 – 9: Ch 3, dc around.  Sl in top of ch 3 st to join.

Row 10: Rep Row 2 for a flared brim or row 3 for more a more subtle brim.

Finish off.
