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

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.. **

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

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
