Herringbone Brimmed Beanie Pattern Release

Boys can be so hard to find a good hat pattern for. So I was on the hunt to design something perfect for those boys in our lives. The request I kept hearing from my kids and many of their friends was that they wanted it to cover more of their neck and shade their eyes. I also kept seeing visor beanies at the stores and so I grabbed my hook and yarn and went to work.

It didn't take long before the Herringbone Brimmed Beanie came to life. 
My boys are thrilled with it and I hope you like it too. The herringbone stitch is a turn change of pace to work (the pattern does include a photo tutorial on how to work it). 

The Herringbone Brimmed Beanie can be found on:

Here are some more views of the beanie. Thanks for looking and join my on facebook to see all new releases, sales and giveaways.

Gift for Eliza

It is kind of ironic that when my friends have a baby I turn to other patterns to try out. This week a dear friend of mine had a little girl, Eliza. I am so excited to go see them on Wednesday so of course I had to make a hat for them and I always enjoy adding some booties to match.
Now, doesn't this hat and baby shoes go perfect together? I just love how they turned out especially in the soft cream and coral colors (I used Caron Simply Soft for this project). 

If you love this set, then I have to share a secret with you....
Both patterns are completely free!

The lovely hat is by Alice and the Mock Turtle, it is called the Itty Bitty Bow Beanie. The pattern was easy to follow but here is a helpful hint: on the repeat rows (rows 7-13) make sure you join in top of the first double crochet, not the sc. This did confuse me for a bit until I reread the instructions, then it went quickly. The lovely combination of stitches made this hat fun to make and I love the little boy!

The cute baby shoes almost look like little ballet slippers and are the easiest and quickest baby shoes I have ever made. This beautiful pattern is called the Little Dot Mary Janes by Whistle & Ivy. I did have to go up a hook size to get the right measurements (used hook G). The pattern was written for a little girl that was battling cancer so she asks that you make a donation. I am going to make an extra set to add to my Cancer Charity Challenge.

I hope you enjoy the set and the links to the patterns.

Cancer Charity Challenge

This past week I lost my Uncle Jeff to cancer. My uncle was one of the most lovable guys you could ever meet. He was always smiling, cracking a joke and had one of those laughs that was contagious to everyone that was around him.

Cancer is such a difficult journey that too many people have to face in their lives. In honor and memory of my Uncle Jeff I am starting a Cancer Charity Challenge.

This challenge is for everyone.

For those that know how to crochet, I am offering a coupon code for a FREE HAT PATTERN from my Ravelry shop. I just ask that you pledge to make a minimum of 1 hat (please make more if you can) for someone battling cancer or to donate to a hospital. The hat you make does not have to be made from my pattern, the challenge is just to help someone fighting for their life.

The coupon for the FREE HAT PATTERN is "CHALLENGE". This coupon will be good  for any single hat pattern through October 31, 2014. October is Cancer Awareness month, so this is just a jump start for you. If you are unable to donate your hat(s), or if you simply prefer, you can send your hats directly to me and I will donate them on your behalf. Just send me a message on facebook for the shipping address.

If you do not crochet, you can still help. I am committing to making 10 hats and donating them to cancer patients. If you would like to SPONSOR A HAT you can order one in my etsy shop and I will make one (in addition to my 10) and donate it on your behalf. You can sponsor a hat for charity through Cancer Awareness Month (October 2014).

Please help me spread the word and share this post, God Bless You All.
