1  Hippie Boyfriend Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by happysheets on: January 04, 2008 07:11:32 PM
My boyfriend wanted me to make him "a hat with ear flaps"  so I whipped up this creation:

He's very outdoorsy and I wanted to make him something that really matched his personality and so I found a tree chart and chose four colors and went from there. 

There was no pattern other than the tree chart and I just kind of placed colors as I went.

Tree pattern!

He wanted it to be super warm so I put a lining around the inside.  It reads "Tyler's Winter Cap" 

He also requested a secret pocket so that's shown in the picture above on the ear flap.

He loves, loves, loves it.  So I am happy.  Comments = love


Some people wanted to know a little more about how I made this hat soo.. here it is!

I basically went to the craft store and chose four colors that I thought would look nice together and then went home and drew up a little picture to think about colors and such.  I had the tree chart from the book Knit Hats! and i knew i wanted to include that.

I started by making the ear flaps.  I knitted two ear flaps and then cast on a LARGE amount of stitches (BF has a large melon) and as i cast on i placed the ear flaps where i thought they should go and knitted them into place as i cast on.

From there i pretty much just chose colors that i thought would look nice and worked in the colors as long as I thought i should.. just kind of felt my way through it...

I knitted the inside of the hat as a strip and used some kind of ghetto intarsia methods to write "Tyler's winter hat."

I crocheted the intarsia strip on by crocheting around the outisde of the hat using a slip stitch.

To make the "secret" pocket I knitted two more identical ear flaps and then crocheted them to the hat when i lined the outside using slip stitch.  Then I crocheted the little pocket flap on and added a button.

THE HARDEST PART by far was crocheting the top of the intarsia strip to the hat without it showing on the outside that I had done so.  it took me forever.

the dangly parts i just braided together and attatched.  yay!

Here's some pictures that I didn't originally include: 

A close up of the button that's on it.  You can't really tell how cute it is and i wanted everyone to see it.

this is the top

that's it!  <3

I made these for my secret Santa, my friend ____.  I don't think that she looks on here, but just in case.  Wink

Just a simple ribbed pattern with noro kyueron (sp?).  Thumb gusset and no fingers.  Easy peasy!

4  Crocheted Chanel Bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by happysheets on: December 10, 2007 12:34:37 PM
I was recently commisioned (my first one!) to make a bag like this one:


For a classmate.  I managed to snag a few pictures of it.

It's very full.

and me modeling.

She wanted different colors (obviously).  I think it ended up pretty well.  I'm an intermediate crochet-er at best so I had some problems with the form, and there weren't really instructions so I kind of went with it.  But it's a bag, so any mistakes I made kind of got fixed once she put things in it. 

hope you all like it.  i was proud.

I'm sorry that it took me so long to reply with my package because i got it ages ago!
I recived an AWESOME package from Shoegirl!

it included various candies, a tide pen, a cup with two very cute stufed toys in it (the little bear is hiding in my bed somewhere), and Bazaar Bizare which is a great alternative craft book that i've never heard of but LOVE.  It also had a very sweet note and some punky hello kitty stationary.  I don't know how she knew that i loved hello kitty, but i do!

this was more than enough but shoegirl sent me a note saying that there was more to come.
wow.  I'm so impressed!
