Pattern: Ski Hat with Giant Pompom 2.0

I upgraded my Ski Hat with Giant Pompom pattern by adding a basic ribbed brim. Oh, what a difference! The simple 1×1 Rib gives it some extra length and style for a more finished look. I now love the way it has just the right amount of sag to the top! Original Ski Hat with […]

Pattern: Pup Squad Dog Sweater

Here’s Erica in her new sweater complete with skirt and dog bone motif on the butt! It’s a mock cheerleader sweater I found on My Savannah Cottage. I modified it by adding a knitted Dog Bone Motif instead of using applique. There is a large dog bone motif on the bottom right of the sweater […]

Pattern: Big Stitch Rug

I made this mock big stitch rug as a dog mat/bed for my new puppy, Erica. It’s my do-it-yourself version of big stitch knitting without actually investing in specialty needles or yarns. The yarns and needles are expensive and hard to find. So rather than spring for giant knitting needles (I’d rarely use), I made […]

Good Ol’ Granny Squares

I saw this crochet bag on the street the other day. (On a homeless bum…) I loved it! It was made with the simple Granny Square method of Crocheting. So I’ve been working on trying to re-create it myself. In the process I crocheted up a bunch of granny square swatches while designing. The quintessential […]

Pattern: Slouchy Hat Womens

This hat is light, easy to wear, and great for Spring! I made this hat for myself! I first made the Mens Version (for a man) of this pattern and liked the style but didn’t like the fit the first time around. So this time, I adjusted the pattern accordingly. It’s an easy knitting hat, […]
