Faerie Wings free crochet tutorial by Jessie At Home

All righty friends, this is just a loose tutorial, not really a pattern. You kind of have to “wing it” ~ hee hee!

You will need:
2 wire coat hangers of equal size and shape
masking tape
5 yards plastic boning (some stores only sell this covered in white or black fabric)
about a foot of craft wire, 20 gauge or thicker
Sample was made with Bernat Softee Baby yarn in Garden Ombre

So much to do, so little time

Honestly, since I left the theater, I don’t think I’ve understood this phrase as much as I do right now. Somehow I have forgotten how many hours there are in a day and have just taken on a bit too much. I guess that is the downfall of finally having a handle on my MDD for the first time in quite a few years. Guess I will have to learn about restraint again. ;^) So much to do!

As you’ve seen here, I have the Granny Sampler Blanket to finish up. I am only a few days ahead of the posts, and I just had to frog a bit, as I made a rather large oops on the boarder. I hope to be done with the blanket and pre~writing the rest of the posts for it by the end of the weekend.

On top of the WiPs I had already going on, a few weeks ago my sister~in~law called to say there would be a baby show for our niece on the 9th (last weekend). That’s right, do the math, I’m going to be a great aunt. Our niece’s mother is Doug’s older sister from his father’s first marriage, so I don’t feel quite as old, but it is still a bit of an odd feeling. Then again, I have an uncle who is 5 months younger then me, so I guess I should just chill a bit. (more…)

Bloom Hat ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

This hat was inspired by an old potholder pattern that can be found here.

This is a slightly loose fitting hat with a tie string that tightens it to fit. It creates an adorable flower look. Make it from all one color, or change colors for each row of petals. The sample was made with Bernat Softee Baby yarn in various colors and a 3.5mm hook.

Flower to Hexagon Granny free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

In my search for a Granny Hexagon to make blankets for my girls, I just couldn’t find one that I really LOVED. Then I realized that there were some gorgeous crocheted flowers with six sides, and I could make a hex from one of those. So this pattern was born. I will do my best to teach it to you.

ETA: I have had many questions about what yarn I used. It is Lion Brand Cotton Ease with a 4.5 mm hook, and 3 years later, it is still holding up very nicely!

and another ETA 6/8/14: Lion Brand has discontinued a lot of the colors of Cotton Ease. I would recommend using Lion Brand Hartland yarn in it’s place, and a 5.50 or 6.00 mm hook.

I have had many requests for a video and a chart for this pattern.
I have made a set for first 3 rows (the flower) and the optional dimensional flower here,
and another set for turning the flower into a hexagon here.
You can also find a video to show the join-as-you-go for grannies method here.
