1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Simple cowl on: January 29, 2013 05:56:45 AM
I've had this wonderfully soft thick-and-thin yarn in my stash for ages now, and I hadn't thought of anything cool to do with it, but since it's really, really cold right now, I thought it was time I made myself a cowl.

I didn't use a pattern for this. I just used a large hook and the woven crochet stitch, and made a large rectangle. I didn't make an actual buttonhole either, the gaps in this are large enough for the button to comfortably slip through. I really like how warm and soft this is, and how it can look different depending on where I button it.

As always, more pictures on my blog.

So glad to see you guys like it, and that I'm not the only one who loves Christmas-y things year round Cheesy I'll get working on a pattern, then \o/

I finished this project during the holidays, as the title implies, but I've been once again procrastinating and just now got around to posting about it. Christmas might be over, but that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy a nice holiday project Wink

I spent all of December watching the Yogscast charity livestreams (any Yogscast fans out there?), and everyone kept wearing these adorable Christmas tree hats. I loved them so much that I couldn't resist trying to knit one for my very own.

I completely improvised the pattern, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I'm thinking about maybe writing it up, but it's still a while until next Christmas, so we'll see. What do you guys think?

As always, a bit more info and photos on my blog.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Owl hat! on: November 21, 2012 07:23:00 AM
I had my birthday last week, and since the weather's thankfully getting cold enough for hats, I thought I'd make this as a birthday present to myself Cheesy

The pattern I used is this one. I did the teen/adult size, which ended up being a little big for me (or maybe I just like my hats a little snug, I don't know). I also made a few modifications to the pattern. I'm really pleased with how it came out! I always wanted a hat with earflaps!

A bit more info on this project can be found on my blog.

Kourtney - haha, it's okay, sounds like you have good reason to be a bit distracted Wink Yep, I just used the acrylic paint on the fabric, no stabiliser or anything. Here is a (not very good) picture of what it looks like after a few washings:

bethimusprime - I haven't tried anything other than the acrylic paint. I did start using fabric paint on the very first ones I did, but the color wouldn't show on black fabric, and it looked like it'd need two bottles of paint in the end, so I immediately moved on to acrylic, and with these I didn't even bother trying the fabric paint. If you have a light-colored fabric or dark paint, though, I'm pretty sure fabric paint would be better and more long-lasting.
