We love narwhals. They are the unicorn of the sea. This giant, squishy narwhal and his friend the shark are soft and cuddly, and make great pillows. They use a lot of stuffing, but they’re so worth it. With my free pattern, now everybody can have their own narwhal or shark friend. Abbreviations: ch: chain […]
In keeping with my costume theme that began with my Enchanted Rose Cape, I have finished designing Part 2: The Beast Hat. From the outside, he may appear menacing, but underneath is a heart of gold. He’s my perfect beast! This beast hat encapsulates the fierce persona that one would like to portray in this […]
Bourbon Blossoms Infinity Scarf Release!
It’s finally here! Today my newest design pattern is released! This another pattern that utilizes the blossom stitch. I designed this particular infinity scarf with a friend in mind who graduated last weekend. I am calling this infinity scarf Bourbon Blossoms. The name is inspired by a book from an author I like, The Bourbon Kings by J.R. Ward. I also gifted the first book of this series, in addition to the scarf, to my friend that graduated. This is intended as an one skein project. I had decent amount of yarn leftover from my 7 oz of Red Heart Super Saver, enough to probably be able to do a small hat.

I am the process of designing a CAL for next year. I am hoping to start the CAL as early as January. So what will be this CAL? I am not announcing what exactly it will be yet but I will tell you that the subject matter will be Sailor Moon related! I am very excited about doing this next year! As I get the details worked out I will update you with more information on the CAL for those of you interested in participating.
As some of you may know, I will be releasing my new infinity scarf pattern this upcoming weekend sometime. But what you didn’t know is that today, to celebrate my 30th birthday, I am releasing an applique pattern for Deadpool eyes!
I’ve been wanting to make a Deadpool hat like this for quite awhile. Unfortunately, I had to put off this project for awhile do to other project commitments. Recently, I finally was free enough to give an applique pattern a shot. I had an idea of how what I thought the pattern should be before I started testing it out and it only took me a total of 3 times of testing to get it how I liked.
I am very happy with the way the eyes look and how they look on the red hat I had made last week. (I personally think the eyes would look better a little closer together BUT my boyfriend says he thinks they look really good just the way they are.)
You can use whichever hat pattern you would like but I like Oombawka Design Crochet’s basic DC hats and HDC hats.Though this pattern calls for an H hook and Aran/worsted weight yarn, you could use any hook size or yarn to match whatever weight yarn you use for that hat part. In addition to the written pattern, I have also included a simplified number guide of how many SCs and HDCs to do in a round. Also when you weave in ends after you finish off the applique, I recommend using the last black end to sew on the hat. In addition, I also used the white center end to help keep the eye more still to make sewing on a little easier.
***This applique pattern is intended to be used for personal use only. NOT to be used for means of making profit!***
