Slouchy Hat

A warm slouchy hat, worked from the brim to the crown in rounds, this eliminates
sewing seams and gives a nice finish, it’s an easy stitch to memorize and can be
made in a day, I have used buttons to decorate the brim, but this is optional.
Make in the appropriate colors to go with any outfit, there is lots of slouch to put
your hair into on bad hair days. it can be worn by both male or female.

Cotton Dishcloth

Classic cotton dishcloth, made in 100% cotton yarn, it’s simple to make so a great
project for the beginner crocheter, a nice sized cloth which is durable, can be
used for washing those dishes or as a cloth for wiping surfaces, wet or dry.
Make for your own kitchen or just add a bottle of dish soap and you have a gift for
someone. This is the second design I have written in my cloth series, see my first
one the scrubby dishcloth pattern,

Adult Headband

I’ve designed this adult headband with two ideas in mind, to make it stylish and for
the practicality of keeping your ears warm, there are two rows to the stitch pattern
which are made up of ch’s, sc and dc’s, so it’s great for both the beginner and
experienced crocheter, make in one color or several the choice is all yours.

CrissCross Bonnet

A crisscross bonnet, designed for a 3-6 month baby and ideal for when they are
starting to sit up and take notice of things around them, as well as keeping those
little ears warm, I have made it in a main color with a contrast edging, easy to
crochet and works up in a couple of hours, can be paired with the baby scratch
mitts pattern (see link below) to make a set.
