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! 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

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.

Easy simple no shaping stocking ornament

Step 1 This is the star stitch but you can make these any size and any stitch just make it in this shape. The above sample has 19 star stiches on the bottom ( 2 rows plus beginning hdc row)and reduces to 10 star stiches ( 3 rows) step 2 turn so the right sides are facing each other, and sew them together like the above picture,. isdsjfklajlkdsjc step three turn right side out! attach a chain 5 if desires so you can hang it.
