My model is so sweet, don’t ya think? Fresh out of the bath with her ‘jamas. Sorry for the poor lighting.. I put off taking this picture all day only to discover it had gotten dark outside.
A couple of weekends ago my 17 yr old niece asked if I could make her a hat for Christmas.. She had a couple with her and told me a little bit about each and why she liked them best from her collection. So I gave it some thought, then went to this flickr group.. and that’s when I came across CoffeeCupcakes pattern. I love the look of this hat.. all sloppy and relaxed…just like my niece 🙂 . This pattern was so simple and it only took me a few hours to complete. In fact, it was so quick I decided to throw in a matching scarf.
Have you ever used the yarn called “I Love This Yarn”? I’ll tell you, it’s wonderful!! It’s a velvety kind of soft with just a bit of give.. and yet it’s still pliable enough that your hook won’t gouge through it. I Love it, love it, love it… thus the name I suppose.
Anywho, if you’re looking for free knit or crochet patterns take a look in the above flickr group.. there are all kinds of interest things in there.. from clothes, to squares, to hats!
