Boucle Yarn Hat for Little Girls with Satin Flowers


Another very cute hat I crocheted in light weight ecru colored boucle yarn.  This hat will fit a toddler or a head of about 16".  The brim is turned up with 3 satin ribbon flowers.  

The brim is a little bit floppy, but its a very cute hat just the same.  Its posted in my etsy store 

At anytime, if you see multiple items in my etsy shop, feel free to make an offer. 
Thanks for stopping by today

Hats Hats and More Crocheted Hats for kids


Hats Hats and More Hats!

Hats have to be one of my most favorite things to crochet!  There are so many different styles and when you use different yarns the same pattern can bring you so many different looks.  Everyone needs at least 5 different crocheted hats... dont you think?  LOL

 These are for sale in my etsy shop here

Learn How to Crochet


Not everyone can learn to crochet by reading a book. When you can watch over someones shoulder, getting the view on the work the same way that you will view it as your working it, makes it a lot easier to learn. Some of you may find it easier to have both a crochet book and this How~to video handy when learning the basics of how to crochet.

It's really simple to learn the basics crochet stitches. I'm not bragging when I say I am self taught. That I learned when I was 13yrs old. The point is that it really is that simple and anyone can learn.

This video will really help get you going in the right direction.

Just think, soon you to will be crocheting up hats and scarfs, doilies and more. Maybe one day you will want to take on a blanket or a sweater set!

Crocheted Baby Beret Hat


I love seeing babies wear beret style hats. I just wish I had one that I could have modeled this one for you.

This one is crocheted in a boucle, acrylic yarn. Unless you look at it really closely, you can hardly tell if it was a knited or crocheted hat. It's a nice light weight hat. I would say perfect for a spring day or a cooler summer day.

This is a One of a Kind hat. Its my own design pattern. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Sorry that the picture doesnt do the hat justice. I will add more pics to the etsy listing once I have them looking better.

Happy New Year


Hello Readers!

I hope you had a marvelous Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever you were celebrating this season.
I celebrated Christmas with my hubby, mother and my youngest son and spent a great deal of my time on the phone with my other kids.

I spent quite a bit of time baking and giving away treats this year, but not as much as I did when the kids were younger. Personally, I like the homemade gifts that I receive much better than the do-dads that can be bought in the stores all year round.

One year my sister knitted me a pink sweater. She must think I am a lot bigger than I am because it was many many, did I say many sizes too big for me. But I still wore it. It became my favorite sweater when I was pregnant with my son in the dead of winter though.

Every time I wore it, I thought of all the hours she took knitting it and that it was made for just me. Every time she sat down and picked up those knitting needles, she had to think about me.

You don't get those feelings from an object that someone rushed out to the mall to grab off the shelf for you. The person who did the shopping isnt going to work thinking of the gifts recipient all those hours at work while the worked for the money to make the purchase. But when someone sits down and knits, crochets, bakes or whatever have you, you can be sure they are thinking of the recipient in the back of their minds.

So to me, a home made gift is far superior to anything anyone can buy for me.
