Crown Ear Warmers

Trend Alert!

Lots of people on my news feeds have been making these crown ear warmers.  I went searching around for patterns and I only really found one pattern pinned multiple times on Pinterest.  They all led back to this pattern available for free on Ravelry by Erangi Udeshika and she has her own blog at Crochet For You.

Anyway, this is a quick little filler post.  If you’ve been looking for a pattern for these crown ear warmers.  Here it is.  Looks super cue and easy.  Enjoy!

Shimmy Time

I’ve been taking belly dance classes for about 4 years now.  I’m not great.  I don’t dedicate lots of time to practice.  But it’s fun and I enjoy it.

I love to buy skirts and hip scarves for class, and I’ve bought tons of hip scarves, but they all have the cheap coins on them.  It’s difficult to find good coins anymore.  So I decided to make my own.

Doily Patches

When I was out in New Mexico for vacation I was in a little boutique.  They had these cute clothes with patches, lace, and doilies and I thought to myself, “I can make something like that.”  Then a month or so ago, a lady in one of my crochet groups on Facebook posted pictures of her granddaughter’s jeans that she patched with doilies.  I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of torn jeans ever since, because I wanted to make something like that as well.

Nurse Mildred Ratched

Halloween for me is almost like a cosplay.  Last year I did Bride of Frankenstein.  This year I’m doing One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest.  I’ve completed my props and I kept them simple this year.  I made the PA system, a sliding glass window to dispense the medication, and a padded wall.  And my costume is a bit of a Cosplay of Nurse Ratched.

Spooky Spider Web Shawl

About a month ago, Shaina E on  The Crochet Addiction Facebook group posted a photo of a spider web shawl/poncho that she designed and free-handed.  I thought it was so clever, and I thought I could probably recreate it.

This would be the first time I ever tried to recreate something by a picture.  I did recreate her design, and I think mine came out pretty close to hers.  She said she just used all treble crochet (tr) and chains, but I had my stitches grow from double crochet (dc) to quadruple treble crochet (qtc).  I may have made that last stitch up.  I haven’t seen anything written about that one, but I imagine it’s out there somewhere.
