Here's an incredibly quick stash-busting project that happens to also be kinda cute.



Materials:

1 skein Lion Brand Heartland in Yosemite (or 250 yds of any other color worsted weight yarn)
1 (partial) skein Studio Classic by Nicole in White (or about 200 yds of any other worsted weight yarn in white)
Small amount of any worsted weight yarn in Black
Size J/6 mm hook
An afternoon with tea and most any Colin Firth movie or an evening with wine and most any Colin Firth movie.
Finished Size: 48" wingspan, 28" from center top to bottom peak.

This is a very vanilla pattern that is perfect for either a beginner crocheter or a seasoned hooker that might need a super quick gift. The entire shawl is worked in double crochet in back-and-forth rows, and the eyes are double crochet in the round. Easy peasy!

Ch 4, sl st in first ch to make a loop.

Row 1: Ch 3 (this will count as the first dc on this row and every additional row), (2 dc, ch-2, 3 dc) in loop. You will have 6 dc and 1 ch-2 space.

Row 2: Ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch as ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in top of ch 3. Now there's 12 dc and 1 ch-2 sp.

Rows 3-22: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in each st across to ch-2 sp, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 space, dc in each st across to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3. 132 dc and 1 ch-2 sp at end of row 22. This is where my 251 yds of orange yarn ran out, so I fastened off the orange, switched to white and continued on. If you'd like a larger shawl, this is where you can keep on crocheting and switch to the white yarn whenever you feel like it.

Row 23: Attach white yarn, ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 59 st. Change to black yarn and dc in next 6 st, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 6 st. Attach white yarn again and dc in each dc to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Row 24: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 61 dc. Change to black yarn and dc in next 7 st, (2dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 7 st. Attach white yarn and dc in each st to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Row 25: Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in next 64 st. Change to black yarn and dc in next 7 st, (2 dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in next 7 st. Attach white yarn and dc in each st to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.

Rows 26-30: Ch 3, dc in same st as ch 3, dc in each st across to ch-2 sp, (2dc, ch-2, 2 dc) in ch-2 sp, dc in each st across to end, 2 dc in top of ch 3.  Fasten off.

Eyes (make 2): With black yarn and size J hook, make a magic loop.
Round 1: 6 dc inside loop. Pull yarn tail to close. You will be working in a spiral so there's no seam.
Round 2: 2 dc in each st around. You will have 12 dc.
Round 3: 6 times. 18 dc
Round 4: 6 times. 24 dc
Round 5: Change to white yarn and sc in each st around. Fasten off.
Sew eyes onto scarf, weave in ends, and admire your work! Hopefully your daughter won't walk by and comment on "the weird Dorito" you've just finished like mine did. Happy hooking!

Easter just around the corner, So I was thinking about something quick and easy to make for spice up bunny costume.
So here I just come up with the idea bunny ear headband , the trick to make the ear stick up is to hold yarn 2 stand and use acrylic or weight wrosted yarn the are good for holding the shape. The great thing is they quite  quick to make  and mostly use single crochet.

What you guys think about my bunny ear?


pattern
Bunny ear make 2 pieces
You will work from top to bottom
Round1. Make magic ring and 3sc in ring (3)
Round2. 2sc in each st around (6)
Round3. *Sc in next st, 2sc in next st*  and repeat from * around (9)
Round4. *Sc in next 2 st,2sc in next st*     and repeat from * around (12)
Round5.   *Sc in next st, 2sc in next st*  and repeat from * around (18)
Round6. *Sc in next 2 st,2sc in next st*     and repeat from * around (24)
Round7-18. Sc in each st around (24)
Round19. *sc in each of next 2 st,dec 1*    and  repeat from * around (18)
Round20-21.  Sc  in each st around (18)
 
Inner of the ear.

Make 2 pieces
Start with slip know then crochet  12 chains.
Round1. crochet 1Sc  into the next 11 chain, in the last stitch make 4 sc in the same stitch (15). (Note: You are now going to be working on the opposite side of foundation chain.} Crochet 1sc into the next 11 stitches. You should have (26) stitches now. Do not slip stitch into the first stitch of this round.
 
Round2. Start crocheting in the next stitch from the previous round. *Crochet 1 single Crochet in the next stitch. Crochet 2 single Crochet into the next  stitch*. Then repeat from the * all around.  You should have (39) stitches now. Do not slip stitch into the first stitch of this round.
 

Round3. Start crocheting in the next stitch from the previous round. *Crochet 1 single Crochet in the next stitch*. Then repeat from the * all around.  You should have (39) stitches now. Slip stitch into the first stitch of this round.
Then finish off and leave long tail for sewing.
Attach bunny ear to the headband by sewing

For the base headband just make a chain long enough to for the length of the band and sc around to wide enough to cover the band.

Whipped this baby up in about an hour. Super simple and super satisfying

You'll need:
Yarn (duh)
G hook
Needle
Row 1: Chain 12, DC in second chain from hook
Place 1 more DC in same stitch
Sk 2 chains, place 3 DC in next chain, Sk 2 chains, place 3 DC in next chain, skip 2 chains, place 3 DC in first chain made
You should have 4 clusters (shells) of 3 DCs
Row 2: Chain 2, place 2 DC in middle stitch of shell from previous row, place 3 DC in middle of next 3 shells from previous row 
Row 3 and every following row: repeat row 2 until desired length, I stopped at around 20 inches, just measure what us comfortable around your head
SC edges together, fasten off, weave in ends
To make band:
Row 1: chain 6, DC in 2nd chain from hook, DC in each stitch (5 DCs )
Row 2-5: chain 2, DC in each stitch (5 DCs )
Gather main head wrap portion and pucker over row of SCs you stitched to join the piece. Place the band over it and stitch together on inside. This will give it a clean look without any seams showing through.
Now go out and look fabulous!
