1. Heartbeat Skully Hat– This pattern isn’t free, but it’s really cute. I made the hat based off the picture, and it didn’t turn out as well as hers. If you don’t mind buying a pattern (it’s only 4 dollars), and want a cute hat, this one is really good.
2. Hello Kitty Hat– I made this is for my little sister, who is a hello kitty fanatic. It was too small at first, like for anyone, even a newborn, I guess because my yarn was slightly thinner than worsted weight. So I had to improvise a little. Also the pattern for the eyes and nose were slightly confusing. I don’t think anyone else had that problem, and the writer’s looks really good.
3. Braided Crochet Headband-This is really cool. It is a continuous braid and looks great from all angles because there isn’t a seam connecting the entirety of the braid. The crochet part was very simple, but the braiding part took a minute.
4. Ribbed Scarf-So simple. This isn’t really a pattern, its more like a different way to do your stitches to get this effect. It looks like knitting, but its way faster. I think mine turned out pretty well, I hope my mom enjoys it.
