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***

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
