woodford folk festival 2006-2007, running around in the bushes, about 1 second of time captured. lots of bugs cruising around a big green spotlight pointed at the treetops. and if you look close you might notice a bat or bird flew through in the moment, flukey.

alo alll, well here is a crocheted beanie, and as some may have guessed by the title, there is good use made of the 'loop stitch'. its 100% wool from spotlight (pictured), and its a good portion of the reason why this hat looks so snazzy. its light, and could be used in all sorts of temps.

my model in the pics is a plastic bag full of material, no exactly very head-shaped, so that means it will fit all kinds of noggins.










im thinking i might continue and add ear flaps and the whole deal, what says you?

Nice, considering you're a guy.. But then again, tailors are male? Haha.. Great job. Wished my bf gave a damn about crafting. (-_-)

what you need to do is put your bf in a dire situation (like in the 'saw' series of movies), you know, and put him in a room with a crochet needle and a 50 balls of yarn, and a tv playing non stop repeats of opra. the only escape being a small opening being in the rather high ceiling. you guessed it, he will have to crochet a ladder to get out of the pickle, and you will have a crafty bf.

Oh! I like it a lot- it makes me want to fill it up with Charles Bukowski and crafty magazines and head to the sprongs for, like,  a year. Very yum!

ol bukowski, sounds bad, but i have seen at least 2 documentaries about him now, but i have had a read of any of his work, i shall do that sooooon, and thankyou Cheesy

Nice bag, I love the material. I can't wait to see your creation from here on out. Cheesy

hehe i think i might even use the same material for the next project, i like it tooo, i have already got a couple of creations in the crochet section. but i must gooo, im late for work


thanks all

heyy peoples, well as the title suggests i am very new to sewing, and this is my basic bag that i made. geez, threading a sewing machine was a hurdle and a half, but once i got past that it was smooth......ish sailing.

so there is some checkered material i got from an op shop, and i bought some (i dont even know what sort of material it is) for the lining (the brown stuff). And used the left over for a crocheted shoulder strap.

i forgot to take a big ball of material out, so it looks a little puffy. anyways ill be needing tips (if im not already looking for them).

beware, novice workmanship ahead, might add to it later.





mind the ug boots and house clothes.

wow this looks really cool Smiley hard work to crochet with ties i suppose........i knitted a bathmat out of an old bedsheet (cut up in 2 inch stripes) a while ago and my arms were so sore while i did it ! but it is so much fun to recycle things and to be able to use them again! mara


sounds interesting, what did you make? you should post your new craftster arm muscles, is there a section for that? recycling is funky indeed.

This is awesome. Also, hurray for dude crocheters and dudes with beards. Possibly dudes in general.

no no, just the ones with beards

Love the hat!


I have major love for ties. Smiley This is such a great idea. I live in Fl so a heavy hat would not work but I think a rug (like of the other posts said would look great). You have inspired me. Smiley

P.S Do not sell it is too coooool!

hehe, o yes i ended up buying another 50 ties last week for $10, the possibilities are endless. its a tad chilly over here in Aus at the moment, so the hat has been to good use, cant dell it now Cheesy


Loooooove it!!! never thought of crocheting ties....

i never thought of crocheting as a hobby  Huh but here i am

Rock. On.

You will have great joy telling the first person who asked where you bought it (because it is the kind of off-beat stylish item less crafty people cannot visualize independently, but once seen must have) that you made it. 

Cheesy  Grin  ive liked the reactions so far, my nephew tried it on yesterday, he is all of 20 months. it wasnt very practical (no vision, too heavy) but he looked like a little colourful mushroom with a bad sense of direction.

Shocked Wow, you did that on a 10mm hook!  Methinks you need a bigger one.   Undecided  I have a 15mm hook in my stash, I pretty much bought it just because it was huge and I kinda feel bad for not ever having used it.  Now I know what I can do with it, thanks.

o yeah that 10mm hook was a struggle, and just the other day i was in spotlight and stumbled across a 15mm hook. go go, make something with your 15mm hook.

How clever! 

Quite honestly, everything about this is far too awesome, and it looks great on you!  I love it!!! My crochet skills don't extend much beyond making rather unimpressive squares, but this hat definately makes me want to try to learn a little more...  Thanks for the inspiration!

haha thanks cherub!  Roll Eyes you can deffinnnatelly crochet no problem, i was only taught by a past gf how to work in the round and do single crochet stitch, and double crochet, and that internet is big, really big.
but if you want a good website that teaches a bunch of stitches, and how to turn, and change yarn, and work in the round and so on, with VIDEOS. then gotooo
