Mini Maleficent Horns



So i'm not sure if I have ever mentioned this but Aurora was always my favorite princess as a little girl I even made a 3 in 1 shawl/ vest pattern because the color reminded me of her dress. You can get that free pattern here Then with the new movie Maleficent coming out I made yet another 2 patterns! Have you seen the free Cowl pattern I recently release? Free pattern here  As the pattern was being shared I saw several comments asking for a free pattern for the horns... Ask no more! These are smaller to make them easier to wear but i have instructions on how to customize!  
And because I am in the spirit of GIVING I am going to giveaway 2 balls of Vannas choice ( USA only sorry I can't afford the shipping anywhere else however when my youtube reaches 5 k I have sponsors to do a bigger giveaway!! so stay tuned!!!) To be entered to win just take a photo of yourself or child rocking out the horns from this pattern be sure to hash tag #chiqmaleficent and follow me @Crochetchiq so I can find you!

Make a magic ring

*work in a continual round . use a contrasting color of yarn or a stitch marker

Vanna's choice or 4 ply yarn
 Use your preferred hook size.
I used a J because it was handy! if this is for a child that may pull on them use a smaller hook to make your stitches tighter.

when you increase  and decrease you can get the horns to twist. If you like the diameter you have you need to increase and decrease evenly. For eample in any given round you would have one decrease for every increase . Look at rounds 5-7, there are 2 increases and 1 decrease. this is to shape the horns and increase the diameter . Play around and have fun! 


Round 1
ch1, 5 sc
Round 2-3
on sc in each sc.
Round 4
2sc in the next 2 stitches, 1 sc in the last 3
Round 5-7
2 sc in the first 2, sc in the next 2, dec, then sc to the end of the round
Round 8-9
1 sc in each
Round 10
sc in the first 5, 2sc in the next 2, sc in the rest
Round 11 -13
  dec, sc in the next 3 2sc in the next 2,  sc in the rest
Round 14 and 15
1 sc in each

Now you can keep going and adding in increases if you want bigger horns. I stopped at round 15 and used bobby pins to attach to my hair.

To pin them I first sectioned off the middle of my hair.

I recommend using at least 2 bobby pins per horn.

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 h

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. If thread isn't your thing check out this great bookmark Stitch 11 made from my Cross Bangle pattern! Check out the Stitch 11 post here
