Flight Hat Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Flight Hat

After designing the Skylark Cloche Hat to match the Skylark Scarf, I had a thought about another hat, one with a spiral top instead of rounds, and worked in the back loops only to show off the spirals. This hat came from that thought. Flight got its name because it reminds me of the early woman in aviation. I’m not really sure why, it just does, and it makes me happy. I hope it brings you happiness as well.

Retro Hats Crochet Pattern Round Up from Jessie At Home

There is something about a retro or vintage look hat that I just love! They are full of such glamour and fun, all at the same time. I feel so much cooler (hipper? groovier?) whenever I wear one. Here is a collection of retro hats so you can be a cool cat, too! I think they are all pretty nifty.

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them. (more…)

How to make a bag out of granny squares

I seem to have a surplus of Granny Squares hanging about my work room. I’m not really sure where they all come from. So, I have started turning them into bags of various sizes and styles. They make great gifts! Especially the little ones turned into little bags for kiddos.

I was recently asked to review a book of Granny Squares, so I thought I would take the opportunity to show you one method I use to turn some Grannies into bags. (more…)

I designed the Skylark Cloche Hat to match the Skylark Scarf. It can be made with the leftover yarn from the scarf! Skylark has a fun 20’s look to it, and adds a fun and elegant flair to your fall and winter wardrobe.

It Girl Crochet by Sharon Zientara ~ Book Review

It Girl Crochet is full of my kind of patterns!! Sharon Zientara has compiled a collection of wonderfully unique patterns that are both modern and vintage at the same time. As a designer, there are times that I look at a pattern and think “Man! I wish I came up with that design myself!!” While looking through this book, I found myself thinking that multiple times.

The book is divided into 3 sections: Crochet Nouveau, It’s a Mod, Mod World, and A Brave New Boho. Seen on the cover, the Psychedelia Mitts, designed by Brenda K. B. Anderson are part of the It’s a Mod, Mod World section. Not only is the look of these mitts unique, but so is the construction. They are worked as a flat oval, which is worked in the round, and then stitched together to become mitts. If you know my designs, you know I love different ways of constructing items, so I am quite taken with this pattern!
