Wow! Another year slipped by...how time flies when you're knitting :) It's obvious, I've been slacking on my blog update. Last post was 4/27/11! I'm officially an occasional blogger only. What I slack off in blog, I more than made-up in knitting and crocheting. Most of my projects are somewhat recent on Ravelry.

Major milestone for 2011:

Shelliyanni went live on 8/6/11. My first knitting pattern for sale.

All patterns here are for personal and charitable use only. Please do not sell the patterns or the finished project. Thank you for honoring this request.



EZ Breezy Newsboy Cap


Method: Crochet

Size: 2T
Hook: F & G
Yarn used:
100% AC Moore Mill Ends Cotton + Bernat Baby Sport





Size: 5 - 7 years old
Hook: G & H
Yarn used:
100% AC Moore Mill Ends Cotton + Bernat Baby Sport




Size: 8 - Tween
Hook: H & I
Yarn used:
100% AC Moore Mill Ends Cotton + Bernat Baby Sport



Size: Adult
Hook: H & J
Yarn used:
2 strands of 100% AC Moore Mill Ends Cotton

Yarn suggestions:
• Any worsted or bulky yarn like.Red Heart Super Savers, Bernat Super Value
• If you don’t have any worsted or bulky yarn, combine 2 strands of medium yarn or a medium + a baby yarn. For adult size, I find it better to use 2 strands of medium yarn. I used cotton as it is currently summer. Chenille yarn would work too and it’s great for colder weather.
• The thicker yarn you used, the stiffer your cap will be.

Stitch markers, I used small safety pins (from Dollar Tree)

Stitches used:
Hdc – yo, insert hook into st, yo and pull up a lp, yo and pull through all 3 lps

Dc dec – yo, insert hook into st and pull up a lp, yo and pull through 2 lps, yo, insert hook into next st and pull up a lp, yo and pull through 2 lps, yo and pull through all 3 lps.

Magic Loop/Adjustable Ring – By using magic loop, it eliminate the gaping hole when crocheting in rounds.

NOTE:
Crochet with both strands of yarn together.
Work in continuous rounds without joining. Place a stitch marker in first st of every round.
• Select the size of cap, and use the larger hook for the hat, and smaller hook for the visor.

I've been looking for this type f pattern. I made a newsboy hat for my son when he was little, now I'm going to make one for my granddaughter.
I've been amazed by the creativity and generous nature of crocheters!
