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!!

Cross Bangle

I wanted to crochet a sideways cross bracelet for some time now but it wasn't until I received this lovely STARDUST( by Red Heart yarn ) that I actually sat down to make it!  This project will fly by you will want to make one for everyone at church :)


Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook.

Make a magic circle

Round 1
Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

Bottom of the cross
When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.
