1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Android Hat on: November 04, 2012 07:06:34 PM
Hello! I recently made myself an Android Hat. (I haven't created anything for a long time!)

And here's the very easy pattern!

What you need

4.5mm double pointed & cable knitting needles

Green yarn (TLC cotton plus solid in kiwi)

White yarn (TLC cotton plus solid in white)

stitch marker

some white felt

yarn needle

sewing needle with some white thread


CO 108 stitches on the cable knitting needles, join the round.

Ribbed rows white yarn

knit 2, purl 2 around, repeat till the ribbed rows are about 1 inch

use a stitch marker to mark start of each row.

Stockinette rows green  yarn

switch to green yarn and work in stockinette stitch till the stockinette stitch rows are about 4 inches.

Reducing rows
switch to double pointed needles

After the 4 inches of stockinette rows, start reducing every 12 stitches around

ie. knit 10, knit 2 stitches together, knit the next row

reduce row knit 9, knit 2 together, repeat till end of row, knit the next row

keep reducing every alternate row, ie. reduce row, k8, k2tgo, repeat till end, k next row, k7, k2tgo, repeat till end, k next row, k6, k2tgo etc ..

reduce till you are left with 9 stitches, pull yarn through the remaining 9 stitches and sew ends in.

My gauge is 5 stitches per inch. I have a large head, so the above measurements matches my head! It may be too big for you! Alternatively, you can use any other basic beanie pattern you prefer, in your preferred type of yarn and needle size to fit your head!


pick 3 stitches at 1 side of the yarn, icord for 10 rows, bind off on 11th row

repeat on other side of hat.


cut 2 round circles of white felt and sew onto the hat slightly above the ribbed rows.

Sew in all yarn ends.

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Angry Bird and Eeyore on: February 27, 2011 06:13:28 PM
I made a couple of amigurumis yesterday. Cheesy An angry bird and a Eeyore! Smiley
Both were quick and fun! Cheesy and are gonna be given to friends!

Angry Bird! (free pattern on ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/angry-birds-cardinal)
So fun to make and so cute! I added a lower beak and tail feathers. Smiley

Eeyore (free pattern on ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blue-donkey-keychain---free-amigurumi-crochet-pattern)
Very quick project but hate the ears. I hate changing yarn colours. In the end, I just crocheted two "ear-looking pieces in pink and blue and sewed them together). lol

edit: just saw the post on amigurumi thread ... oops.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / DodododoNuts! on: February 22, 2011 11:05:07 PM
I joined another swap on ravelry and this time, it was doughnuts!
The pattern is free from  here http://doortje-d.blogspot.com/2008/01/doughnut.html

The stripey one looks mouldy Tongue the pink one looks safer to eat. Tongue

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cookie Tape Measure on: February 17, 2011 08:31:18 PM
I joined a donut swap on ravelry and was playing around with cute food ideas and decided to make a cookie tape measure. I've seen tape measure covers like this before, this is my interpretation! I posted the super easy pattern on my blog if you're interested! Smiley

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Summer Flies Shawl on: February 14, 2011 08:44:25 PM
This is my 2nd knitted lace project. The Summer Flies Shawl! I love this pattern! (http://www.hollyandellaknits.com/shop/free-patterns/summerflies/)
As it keeps changing, the pattern never gets boring and the final product looks great! Smiley

I blocked it in a funny way. I washed it, spun & hung it up to dry cuz its cotton blend machine washable. When it was dried, I pinned it on the bed, sprayed it lightly with mists of water and dried it with my hair dryer. lol. I sometimes do this with my tshirts when they are too creased but i dont have time to iron them.  hehee. I figured its ok since its a cotton blend, not some delicate fiber.

I am already making my 2nd shawl. Smiley i am so pleased with how this turned out! Smiley

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Sleepy Lamby on: January 02, 2011 02:14:07 AM
I've been making amigurumis to break the monotony of my knit cardigan project.I made another one today. A sleepy lamby! I found the absolutely adorable pattern here: http://harugurumi.blogspot.com/2008/02/baby-sheep-free-pattern.html
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Lavender Bunny on: January 01, 2011 06:58:48 AM
I've been looking for a free bunny pattern to make a toy for my friend's soon to be born baby girl. She will be born in the year of the rabbit!
The lavender bunny has been popping up on my screen quite a bit when I was doing my search. Initially I wanted a knit pattern. Then I saw this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368345.0 today and decided to try my hand at the lavender bunny too! Cheesy
It was easy and pretty fast! I made it in about 7 hours, with toilet breaks, dinner, tv and a shower. Tongue and I love how the bunny turn out!

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Kinda Japan-ish Sling Bag on: December 07, 2010 05:14:25 PM
I like all those meshy/lacy cotton bags featured in Japanese crochet books. Always so pretty and feminine.
I needed to make one for a friend's bday and didn't have time to figure out the japanese pattern charts. So I made one up. The crochet part was super easy and fast. Cheesy But sewing on the zipper to the lining took me at least 2 hours with a lot of trial & error. lol. I hate sewing zippers!

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Wearable Pincushion on: November 28, 2010 06:54:29 AM
Copied the idea from sew ritzy~titzy (http://sewritzytitzy.blogspot.com/2010/02/fudge-brown-chatelaine.html).  She has MAD SKILLS!

I had to borrow the book from the library and get the pattern for the squares because it is just sooooooo pretty!
I think it's pretty enough to wear as a fashion accessory rather than a pincushion! Smiley

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Gifts for Baby Vera on: November 28, 2010 12:33:20 AM
One my best friends Chris gave birth to a baby girl just last Friday. Her name is Vera. Cheesy
I crocheted a couple of beanies & headbands as a present for her. Smiley

I used the basic infant hat pattern from http://dishclothdiaries.blogspot.com/2009/10/basic-infant-hat-4-sizes.html
I like this beanie pattern because it's not pointy like some of the other patterns available. I used the largest size available for the small hat. And for the bigger hat, I added 1 more round.

The big flower is the Irish Rose pattern from Lion Brand http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/irish-rose-2

And the lavender blue flower is from http://sewritzytitzy.blogspot.com/2009/06/crocheted-flower-brooch.html

The headbands and the flowers on them are improvised because my mom suggested them. Tongue
