Cowls and Owls… Crochet Fun!!

.

The busy crochet season is here… Several custom orders and time to stock my shops…  Last night I finished up an adorable Owl Hat custom order….  It always feels good to get a work in progress done and off to where it is going….  I love making these Owl Hats, they are cute and easy to make… The pattern I use can be found at one of my favorite blogs… Repeat Crafter Me… She has tons of great projects!

3-6  Month Size Owl Hat…Lavender and White

Also off the hook and to my Etsy Shop... Another Soft and Stylish Cowl…  I now have the pattern worked out and should have this FREE Pattern ready to post in the next couple days…  It is also really beautiful and very quick to work up… This Cowl was made using a slightly less bulky yarn Rated a (5) in yarn thickness,,, The previous Cowl’s were made using a (6),,, I actually like the Cowl’s that had the thickest yarn… They were way more “plush”… But, this is beautiful and I would wear it this fall!!

Crochet Cowl Crazy!

.

This weekend I started several new projects… Trying to get ready for Fall and Christmas both in my Etsy Shop and at Alpine Originals…  I am still finalizing my” Sadie” Pattern and have almost got it together for my tester…  I worked on another cute pair of children’s Crocodile Boots and started a pair of really cute boot cuffs from Elk Studio Hancrafted Crochet Designs Free Patterns…  All of these took some concentration and pattern reading…  So they are all work in progress pieces, along with a couple Afghans I have on the hook…

.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day at an out-of-town Volleyball Tournament with my beautiful daughter that is starting her senior year tomorrow!!!…

Well, I can’t really concentrate on pattern reading in the bleachers of some exciting games… Hmmm… So what to take… Ok, I decided to make up some Infinity Cowls… Last week on my Facebook Free Pattern segment,,, I featured a really cute cowl from Ravelry, Lots of you really like this pattern that I featured… So I made one up, inspired by some of her design,,, And of course… I had to add some of my own touches!  A ruffled edge and my own flower that I use on most of my designs… It was made with a great teal color from Caron Simply Soft…Love it!

Infinity Cowl Scarf In Teal…

.

By the time we got home and got reorganized,,, I sat down for a little more crochet… Since I was on a roll and several people asked for the pattern I used last week in my Infinity Cowl with Sequins,,, I thought I should continue to work on that pattern too!  So because I had just picked up some more yarn,,, I pulled out some great chunky yarn in Pink that I just bought by Deborah Norville…  I whipped up another one of my own designs and decided it needed to have one of my flowers too!  This pattern is more a cowl than a scarf… I love the way this one turned out too!!!
