Turtle Power

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have returned.  My son LOVES them!  I was trying to figure out some things that I could make him for Christmas.  For some reason, I have a harder time coming up with things for him, than I do for my daughter.  Let's face it, little girls are easier.  Anything pink, purple, flower, or frilly will do.  My son is harder to impress.  I am thinking that something TMNT will be a hit.  I decided to make him a set of 4 (there are 4 tmnt's after all) coffee Kozies.  Obviously, he doesn't drink coffee, but he brings a water bottle to school every day.  Why not make it a little fun by sliding a Kozie on there?!

I sat down with my hook case and yarn and this is what I came up with:

Tis the Season!

Finally, the rest of the world has caught up with my Holiday spirit.  I have been listening to Christmas music for months!  I think we should celebrate the beginning of the Christmas season with a fun Christmas hat pattern.  How about a SANTA HAT?! 
Swirls and Sprinkles: Free crochet Santa hat pattern
My little Sprinkle wearing her sparkly Santa hat.  :)
My daughter LOVES her new Santa hat.  I have been making them for a few years and this is the first year that I made one with SPARKLE yarn.  Made. her. day. 
Who says you have to us "Christmas colors"?  I love this blue and white hat.
Swirls and Sprinkles: Free crochet Santa hat pattern
White and blue Santa hat
The blue and white was not made with MY pattern, but it's still a Santa hat.  ;) 

The hat works up quickly and fits a wide range.  I refer to it as a child hat, for children 3-10, but the hat has enough stretch that I wear them too.  The size is easily adjustable by switching hook sizes and adding/decreasing the increasing rows. 

I hope you get as much use and joy out of this pattern as I have!

Pom pom
Using white (or what ever color you like)
Wrap your yarn around your hand or piece of cardboard until you get the thickness you would like.  I wrapped about 75-100 times
Carefully slide the yarn off of your hand or cardboard.
Using a length of the same color yarn, tie a knot TIGHTLY around the middle of your pom.  You will have two sides of loops once you have tied your brown yarn around the pom.  I usually flip the pom pom over and tie another TIGHT know around the pom pom.
Once you have the pom secured, cut the loops.
Give your pom a haircut to even it out, but DON’T cut the yarn you used to secure your pom.  You will use this length of yarn to fasten the pom to the hat.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Snowflake 2

I received a lot great feedback about my Quick and Easy Snowflake!  (Thank you!  It means a lot to me, to receive feedback!)  I didn't realize that there are so many more people, like me, who hate working with thread.  I was asked by a few people if I was going to write up any more patterns for snowflakes.  The answer, YES!
Again, this one is not blocked yet.  Have I mentioned that I hate blocking?  Perhaps I will get around to it, perhaps not.  One of the great things about using yarn instead of thread, is that it will hold its shape a lot better, without being blocked.  ;)
Here is my second snowflake pattern.  (hopefully a lot more to come!)  This one works up just as quickly as the first one.

Crochet Santa Suit Hat

Who doesn't need a little HO HO HO?  My son saw something similar to this and asked me if I could make him one.  I hope he likes it.  He still doesn't know that it is finished, or that I even started it.  I would give it to him for Christmas, but then he wouldn't be able to wear it until next year.  I hope you like the new hat as much as my son!

Small Candy Cane Ornament

I. Love. Candy Canes.  I don't know what it is about candy canes, but I have always loved them.  My daughter loves candy canes as much if not more than I do.  Every year, I have to buy a couple extra boxes of candy canes to last the entire year.  Those little starlight candies or peppermint sticks just won't do.  It has to be candy canes.  :) 
Maybe that is why I was super excited to write up this pattern.  This is really quick and easy to work up and is very easy to assemble.  The finished candy cane measures approx. 4 inches long.  I think I will be attaching a candy cane ornament to the top of some of my Christmas gifts this year.  It is a really cute "little something extra".

 Small Candy Cane

What you will need:
G hook
Red and white yarn.
Scissors
Yarn needle
Pipe cleaner
Hot glue gun

With white yarn:
Ch 25, 3 sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across.  Fasten off and weave in ends.
With red yarn:
Ch 25, 3 sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

Twist the red and white curls around each other to make one curl.

Take the pipe cleaner and fold it in half.  If it is still longer than your curl just fold one of the ends over a bit.
Take the curl and curl it around your pipe cleaner.
Make a bend at the top to form your candy cane.

Optional, but recommended:
Put a small dab of hot glue on both ends of the candy cane so it won’t unravel.  I find that hot glue is the easiest and most effective way to keep everything held together. 

To finish for an ornament:
Attach a loop of yarn to the top of the candy cane.
