Much to the delight of my cat, Hazelnut, I’ve started crocheting again. A former colleague of mine formed a crochet circle at the office and was more than happy to take me on as a padawan and show me the ropes… or yarn, as it were. I managed to complete a couple of projects and then hung up my hooks to finish my degree and bear several children. Now that I have a baby girl to crochet for (and a Pinterest board full of ideas), I’m back. I’ve recently finished several projects, including 3 hats. The cool thing is that while the finished products are very different, all 3 hats were made from the same beanie pattern. Sarah over at Repeat Crafter Me is a crochet genius and super generous in sharing her easy-to-read patterns (newborn – adult). Here’s a link to the beanie pattern I used for these little numbers.
Again, I reused my favorite beanie pattern for the hat. The pattern for the bird features can be found here.
Same basic pattern and then I found the pattern for the wings and stuff here.
I am so thankful that so many crocheters are willing to share their awesome patterns for free. The craft world has such a fabulous community. Enjoy the patterns and I’d love to see the finished product if you make any of these projects!
