Peppermint Twist Slouchy


This is a variation of my slouchy pattern see the step my step photos there for an idea of how this looks as you go, however this is solid and not lacey.

I used the more economical Red heart with love for this hat ( NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH super savor!)
 I used a J hook
* in this pattern I chain 2 to count at my first hdc of each row*
I started by chaining 25 but you can chain more or less to make to more or less slouchy

Row 1 2hdc in the first chain 1 hdc in each of the next chains until the last 2 then work a decrease
Row 2 chain 1 turn, work a decrease as you first stitch then, 1 hdc in each stitch , work 2hdc in the last
Row 3 chain 2 ( counts as first hdc) hdc in the first stitch, 1 hdc in each of the next, work a decrease in the last 2 stitches

Keep this pattern up where you always increase on one end and always decrease on the other end.

* I weave in the ends of my color changes on one side and call that my back**
 keep working the pattern until when putting the first row to the last row it fits comfy around your head.

sew them together with the backside facing out, take an 8 inch or so strand of yarn and weave it along the top portion and put it tight . tie a knot very secure. turn the hate right side out and attach you main color and work shells along the edge. I did a 4 hdc shell. my rows were 3 rows of red and 2 rows of white.

What colors will you use?

I think this would also look great with some green too!!

finger crochet cowl

Hey everyone! I took a ball of Lionbrand Heartland Thick and Quick with me to an Angel baseball game. I always bring yarn because while going to games is fun the boys in my life enjoy them far more than I do! This project to only took me 1/2 of an inning to create so it you want something quick this is your project.


I only used 1/2 of the ball but you can get an extreme one by using the whole ball... it would be perfect for cooler weather.

I started by making a slip knot with my fingers.
Then I wrapped the yarn around my index finger and pulled through so that I was chaining with my fingers. See photos below. After you have finger crocheted the length you want, I did 1/2 the ball knot the end, wrap around your neck to the desired length and use about 6 inches to wrap around all the strands like the photos show. I weaved in my ends or you can use fabric glue to make it super secure. Any 5 ply or 6 ply yarn can be used to make this.I have a kids tutorial for finger crochet here
