Does your little oneses heads get cold in the fall and winter? Does your head? Maybe you don’t have a crochet beenie to wear. And if you’re going to wear one, why not have it be one you made yourself? You can give them as gifts. And they’re interesting crafting projects. You can learn how to scale your pattern by head size as you work on things like crochet beenies. Note: may also work as a tea cozy.
Are these cute? What color do you think looks good? You could use up some odd ball yarn making these. Crocheters say it’s easy to crochet these, too. One even said she made preemie ones for her hospital. The crochet patterns are from newborn head size up to adult size 7 head size.
The free pattern comes to us by way of Mango Tree Crafts. It uses a 5 millimeter hook (H) and the ones in the picture used just Caron Simly Soft Acrylic yarn. Any weight of worsted should work, according to Mango Tree Crafts.
It uses several stiches, though. Single crochet, slip stich, cluster stich, and yarn over. Click here for the pattern. Article printed here with permission of Blogunity, the original location of this blog. We are associated with Blogunity.
Yarn-Wrapped Monogram Letter - Make One at Home
How about an easy craft that will catch some eyes? This is a simple crafting project that takes about 30-60 minutes to pull off really well, and it’s fine for crafters of any level, and with really basic materials and skills.
It’s a yarn-wrapped monogram letter, and it’s the work of CatchMyParty who originally dubbed it their “Yarn-Wrapped Ombre Monogrammed Letter”. Who has a daughter, niece, or new baby in the family they can make one of these for? Or maybe make a whole word for a festive season?
All you need by way of materials is:
– Embellishments (cloth flowers or other if you want)
– Craft glue
– A wooden letter (or cardboard! You might double up a few layers of cardboard) which can be purchased from a crafting supply store, Amazon, or a hardware store, or you can make your own if you have a saw
The way you go about it is simple: You start at one end with one color of yarn, and apply glue to the back of the letter for that section (you could apply glue to the whole thing, but its recommended you glue section by section, and then wrap the yarn around the letter until you get to where you want your next color).
