Crocheted Owl Hat

 This pattern is easy to follow, fun to change and adapt.  I was delighted with the professional look of the final product. Since my wool is thicker than what is used in the pattern, I used an N- 9 mm hook and by using thick yarn, I only needed only 6 rows to fit a two-year-old.  Bonus- the hat is so comfortable.  Although  I adapted the pattern. I followed the basic concept in the link below....more

I  have also kept busy by  writing articles,blogging and asking advice about publishing a book....more

Crocheting My Way To Freedom…

Freedom, freedom from buying gifts, that is. I stumbled upon a wonderful source of FREE crochet patterns for babies and children and I am excited to start making special outfits, jackets, booties and even little shoes. Usually, I crochet queen size blankets, cream coloured bed covers, Afghans, shawls, baby blankets, scarves , dish cloths and gorgeous hand towels but I have never considered crocheting anything else. Nine kids with birthdays, weddings and now grandbabies kept me crocheting constantly for years....more
