A few weeks ago I found out that you can make adorable hats for smoothies.They only take about three quarters of a hour and are mega easy.The pattern I made mine with is the happy hat pattern but a lot smaller.These are so easy and you should use this pattern to have a go at making one.

Pattern

  • size 4.5needles
  • 1 ball of Acrylic wool
  • A tapestry needle
What you do:

First co 14 sts p 1 row then k 1 row inc on each end of the row .Repeat this step until you have 18 sts then p 1 row.This time k 1 row but k2tog on each end of the row .Repeat this step until you have 12 sts on the needle.Now cut your wool.Thread the wool through your  tapestry needle then thread the tapestry needle through some sts  and pull them off the knitting needle pull the tapestry needle as far as you can .Repeat this step until there are no longer any sts on the knitting needle and sew up the seam as usual .Tie off the end and your innocent smoothie hat is finished.

Awesome Animals

You can knit tons of adorable animals but I mostly make owls and rabbits.

Rabbits

Rabbits are so simple because they are made from a square of garter stitch that you fold and sew.

size small         size big                                                                                                                       Pattern

co 18 sts and k every row until you have a square then cast off.

size big

co 30 sts and k every row until you have a square then cast off.

sewing

Sew a loose triangle not properly starting or finishing on one half of the square .Then put a ball of stuffing in the middle of the triangle and pull the wool from the sewing and tie them in a knot.Then sew the back ,stuff it and sew up the bottom.finally you may want to give it a pom-pom tail .img_3102

Super snoods

Lately, I have been making super easy super snoods in Rowan big wool.They make amazing gifts and are mega cozy.Every snood is the softest thing you will ever touch.I knitted a snood for my Mum which took about 2 days because it was Saturday and Sunday.I have only made one stripy snood.Some people tell me I should sell snoods.The needles I use are massive and so is the wool so it barely takes any time.I have only made 5 adult snoods and 1 child snood however I have 2 orders for adults.

Please read the epic super snood pattern below.:):)

Happy Hats

a happy hat!

Do you need a super cosy for cold days ?If so this is perfect for you .You can make your happy hat any colour you like but the first ever happy hat was a lovely shade of blue .My happy hats are made in rowan big 100% pure Italian wool.

I made the first ever happy hat as a gift .If knitting, this amazing hat is stylishly almost shapeless so it isn’t a very complex pattern.

When the happy hat   I was making my own pattern but it really works.

If you want to make a happy hat simply follow this pattern

what you need:

  • USA size 15 needles
  • rowan big wool (any colour)

What you do:

co 24 sts p1 row k1 row and inc on each end of the row.p1 row and k1 row inc on the end of the row again.p on wrong side and this time dec on each end of the row .Repeat until 18 sts left on the needle.Then thread some wool through the sts and pull off the needle now tie the pieces of wool together  and sew the seam .Finally finish off the seam and enjoy.

I think these happy hats  are great for beginners and make great gifts.

You can make your happy hat as bright and colourful as you like you could even make it stripy or you could keep it simple .Whatever you do I promise it will look great!
