71  Crocheted hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by FreakieGeekie on: September 25, 2014 11:37:51 PM
Hats that I crocheted for my older sister and her children who live in Michigan.
This one is for my niece, Phiona, who LOVES anything and everything pink:


This one is for my nephew, Logan, who only said he didn't want a pink hat:


Those two hats were made by crocheting rectangles which I then stitched together on their short sides then gathered and stitched up one of the longer sides for the top. I got the idea from a crochet book that picked up at Goodwill but I don't recall the name Huh

This one is for my sister (though I'm wearing it here), MacKenzie, whose favorite color is green:


Her hat started out using a pattern I'd found online but I lost it so I had to make up the rest as I went along since I don't remember where I got the pattern Huh

Prompt: September- Solitaire
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: UFO Sighting
Project Name: Hat for Kenzie
I made my niece and nephew hats back in July (I think it was July) and started on this one for my sister but I lost the pattern. So I put it aside. Now that it's fall, I decided to finish it up so that I can send it to her before winter sets in. Since I still can't find the pattern, or remember where I found it, I made up the rest as I went along. It turned out pretty nice, if I do say so myself. The yarn is Lion Brand Hometown USA in Oklahoma Green. I hope it fits her. It fits me well but I have thicker hair.

Prompt: Flash Mob- Game of Life
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Oddly Enough (ponysona for suereal)
Though this is for a personal swap with suereal, she gave me the go ahead to post pics because she wants me to wait 'til she's in the states again so I can save on shipping and to ensure it's safely delivered. This all started when she saw my ponysona and said she liked her. Naturally, I offered to draw one for her so she gave me ideas and asked if I'd like to do a swap. Of course I said yes and here is the awesomely crafty Mrs. Oddly Makestuff. The scanner ruined the colors: her mane, tail, eyes and hooves are chartreuse and therefore very bright. The orange is also much brighter. The purple, however, is that dark but it's the only purple pencil I had Tongue

“Fandom, after all, is born of a balance between fascination and frustration: if media content didn't fascinate us, there would be no desire to engage with it; but if it didn't frustrate us on some level, there would be no drive to rewrite or remake it.”

Prompt: August Battle Royale- Earth vs Air vs Fire vs Water
Team: Fandom
Event: Fabricology
Project Name: Land Shark
One of the items for GISHWHES was Jump the Shark. I was going to take it in the literal sense and jump a shark, even though it wasn't a real shark. But my internet went down so I didn't shoot the video since I wouldn't have been able to upload it. I did, however, get a pic of Harley wearing his costume. He usually doesn't mind dressing up but when I put his costume on him, he just gave up.



Prompt: August- Secret Stash
Team: Fandom
Event: Yarnology
Project Name: Unicorns DO fart rainbows
Another GISHWHES item. This one said to prove that unicorns really do fart rainbows and that Photoshop was not allowed. As if THAT is a challenge for a Craftster, right? Cheesy So I dug around in my stash and found some white yarn. I also found a bunch of glitter that I forgot I had. I rarely use glitter as it makes such a mess but I just HAD to have it for my unicorn's hooves and horn. As a result, I'm not allowed to use glitter in the living room because I made a big mess.


Prompt: June- Button Up and August- String Theory
Team: Fandom
Event: Yarnology (both)
Project Name: Elopus vs Wooster
Another GISHWHES item! This one said to create a Wooster (wolf/rooster) and an Elopus (elephant/octopus) and have them locked in an epic battle for mascot supremacy. The Elopus, this year's mascot, is my Button Up project as it has button eyes and the Wooster, a previous mascot, is my String Theory project. I only have the one picture of them or I'd post them separately. My sister has the Wooster and the Elopus is in a box as I'm debating sending him off to Misha.

Look at all the pretty yarnie things! <3 I especially love that purple hat! Cheesy

I can't wait to see a photo of him on instagram with that cozie!  I am crafting away but everything is for swaps and so I can't post any of it! 

I wonder what sort of pic he'll do with it...
Knowing Norman, it won't be boring! And I can't wait to see what you're doing! Cheesy

A new yarnie thing from me (I'm trying to thin my stash):

Ooh look at the pretty notecards and the lovely puzzle pieces! And pishaw, I love that shirt and the chair socks! Also, I'd love to have some of those blueberries :d

Prompt: August- Taste the Rainbow
Team: Fandom
Event: Yarnology
Project Name: Rainbow Rave Purse
A while back, my manager gave me a copy of McCall's Crochet Treasury. I offered to make a strawberry purse for her granddaughter in exchange. Well, I somehow lost the red yarn **cough**stashateit**cough** so I had to make something different. I showed my coworker a skein of my Red Heart Blacklight yarn and she loved the colors (I love neons, especially pink and green). She loved it even more that the purse glows under black light. I started on this last night and finished it up this morning. I also handed it off this morning, which is why the picture is the way it is (I rushed and just snapped one).

This is my latest creation. A friend linked me to the booby coozie pattern here on Craftster and asked me to make it just because she wanted to see it. I obliged. As I have no use for it, I'll be sending it to Norman Reedus, since he seems to like the wacky things his fans send to him.


PS, my dad says it looks like something tacky you'd get from Hooters.
