Tardis.. I mean British Police Box beanie with ear flaps







Check it out these Snappy Tots patterns  I have never looked and  I h ave heard people rave about them.  Part of the reason is a majority of her patterns are paid (at least i thought)  and I just don't have the budget to buy patterns and yarn...  I do buy every once and a while though I love supporting designers when I can :-) Back to Snappy Tots she (Heidi) is retiring a large amount of beautifully written patterns in pdf! To celebrate she is also discounting all of hef paid patterns this week too! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/police-box Here is the link to the patter  I love!  Here are notes and changes i made while making mine
I crocheted everything in the round and sl right before color changes.
For the windows of the police box for the white i did hdc and the blue was fpdc.  I made this change on mine because personally im not a big fan of hats with dc.. I don't like to see my hair under the hat.
Using the J hook the hat was getting big for my head so after the windows i did one round of hdc. 
After adding the earflaps I used black to sc around the hat with only sl in the earflaps.  Then I added the pom and braids.
The lettering took a few tries to get it centered and looking the way i liked.. My lettering could use some work lol can't be good at everything.
When I make another..  My bf has claimed this one I will try crocheting loosely with an I hook And with different yar.  My hat was made with Red Heart Super Saver.
Be careful when wearing your awesome new hat...  Other whovians may seek you out and beg borrow and steal to get there own tardis... I mean police box hat

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.

***Add the cross part***


attach the yarn to the sid…

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.

Chiq Shell Shorts

Say the name 10 times fast hahahaha!




I wrote this pattern at the request of AFC Check  them out to see all the other amazing patterns and videos they have!!!


Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs

Use crochet hook size J
Use any 4 ply yarn 
1-Start by doing Foundation quadruple crochet 50 2-sc in each stitch for a total of 50


3- make shells (2hdc,ch1,2hdc) across skipping 3 sc in between each shell. 4- do six rows of shells ( skipping 4) …
