Mini Heart Beanie…Free Pattern

This is a super cute and quick make, so perfect to hook if you have an upcoming craft fair or if you wanted to make in time for Valentines Day as a treat for yourself or as a Galentine’s gift for your Bestie! The pattern is only available in adult size at the moment, hopefully I can carve out some more time to grade it for other sizes.

I get lots of questions about where I get my labels for my hats…the answer is Etsy! My labels are cork labels made from 100% sustainable material that is vegan. There are lots of custom sellers, so if you are looking for some labels or tags go and check them out.

The pattern is suitable for beginners and just uses a double crochet stitch (single crochet stitch), and some decrease stitches. It is important not to have your tension very tight or the teeny, tiny hearts become pinched. I used Stylecraft Softie which is a chunky yarn blend 20% wool 80%acrylic. I did try with some other chunky yarn, but I got the best results with the Softie, it just gives a subtle amount of drape which feels lovely to wear.

You can also purchase a printable PDF of this pattern which is available in both UK and US crochet terms over in my Etsy shop for less than a cup of coffee which you can access just here

You will need:                          

6.5mm hook

Stitch Markers (optional)

Scissors

Darning needle

Tape measure

Faux fur pom or you could make your own.

Yarn – chunky / bulky see further below for recommended yarns.

20% superwash wool 80% acrylic blend

Adult –  approx. 95g

Main colour – approx..80g

Accent colour approx. 15g

Size Guide.

Adult – to fit head circ. 22” / 55.8cms

Measurements are approximate and I advise you measure the intended head wherever possible.  This beanie allows for a 2” / 5cm negative ease (the amount of stretch)

Stitch Abbreviations.

Ch – chain

Slst – slip stitch

Dc – double crochet

Hs – Heart stitch

Dec – decrease

BLO – work st into the back loop only (see photo at back of pattern)

Dc: Insert hook into chain or under both loops of stitch, yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on hook, yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook.

Hs: Insert hook under both loops of stitch, in accent colour – yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on hook (1st loop in main colour, 2nd loop in accent colour), in main colour – yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook to complete st.  See top tip below! See Pic 1 – 4

Dec: decrease st worked over 2 stitches: insert hook under both loops of stitch, yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on your hook, insert hook into next st, yarn over and pull through so there are 3 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

Top Tip:

When working the heart stitch and you yarn over and pull through in accent colour, pull loop up a little higher than you would for a regular dc stitch as this helps to keep the heart lying flat instead of pulled too tight.

Pattern Notes.

This pattern is written using UK crochet terminology and the stitch abbreviations can be found below. 

Ch1 does not count as a stitch throughout the pattern unless otherwise stated. Repeats are marked by asterisks *.  

The hat is worked by making the ribbed brim and joining one end to the other to form a circle. The main body of the hat is then worked in rounds.

When working Rounds 3 and 5 and subsequent repeats carry non-working yarn along the round (see pic 5)

When working rounds 4 and 6 and subsequent repeats drop accent colour yarn and pick up again on next round

Top Tip:

When working a dc in round above heart st, insert hook into side of heart as shown in Pic 6 as this will make it easier.

Yarn Suggestions.

Stylecraft Softie chunky is the recommended yarn for the pattern, but here are some similar substitutes…

King Cole Timeless Chunky

King Cole Big Value Baby Soft Chunky

King Cole Shadow Chunky

Red Heart Gemstone

Bernat Wavelength

Gauge

It is very important to check your gauge to ensure your beanie will fit.

To do this make a gauge swatch in the yarn you will be using for the body of the hat.  If this matches the gauge, you’re good to go!   If your swatch is too big, try using a smaller hook to obtain correct gauge.  If your swatch is too small, try using a larger hook to obtain correct gauge.

Using chunky / bulky yarn swatch 11dc x 14 rows = 4” x4” (10cm x 10cm)

In main colour

Row 1: Ch8, dc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch along, turn do not ch1 (7dc)

Row 2 – 62: IN BLO dc in each st across, turn do not ch1 (7dc)

Slst row 62 to beginning row to form a circle. Turn brim inside out so the seam is on the inside. We will now be working in rounds around the brim of the hat.

Working with right side facing you in main colour

Round 1: ch1, 64dc evenly around top of brim – 2dc in first and last st then aim to place a dc at the top of each rib, join with a slst to 1st dc (64dc)  

Round 2: ch1, dc in each st around, join with a slst to 1st dc (64dc)

Round 3: ch1, dc in same st, hs * dc, hs * repeat around, last st is a hs, slst to top 1st dc (32dc / 32hs)

Round 4: repeat round 2

Round 5: ch1, hs in same st, dc * hs, dc * repeat around, last st is a dc, slst to top of 1st hs (32hs / 32 dc)

Round 6: repeat round 2

Repeat Rounds 3 – 6: 2 more times(total of 8 rounds)

Round 20: ch1,decrease in each st around, skip last st (13dec)

Hat measures 8.5” from brim to crown

Fasten off cutting yarn leaving a long tail approx. 20cms from hat.  Thread darning needle and weave in and out of the top loops of last round. Pull the end tight to gather and secure with a few stitches. Weave in any loose ends. Now add your pom (see end of pattern for details)

Add pom

Add a faux fur pom to complete the look. Or alternatively make your own pom. I added a Trimits pompom as they tie into the hat easily, which makes them really easy to remove for when you want to launder your beanie.

If you are making your own pom you have a couple of options. You could use a pom pom maker however, I favour making my pompoms using the method my Grandma taught me; using 2 pieces of cardboard.  I like my pompoms to be really full and lush and so I wrap each pompom with a minimum of 3 layers of yarn.  My card circles have an outer diameter of  approx. 4.5” / 11cms.

Here is a useful link for making pompoms with 2 discs of card https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXFCO3LBJss

TOP TIP:  If making your own poms leave long tails when you tie your pompoms off as it will make attaching them to your hat much easier.  If your pompoms are in a different colour to your hat, tie your pompoms off with the main colour of the hat as it makes weaving in the ends much neater.

REMEMBER: IF MAKING YOUR OWN POM YOU WILL NEED MORE YARN THAN STATED IN THIS PATTERN.

Jubilee Bunting…free crochet pattern

With Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee just around the corner I thought I’d share my progress on my Jubilee decorations and share the pattern with you. After all what good is a garden party or afternoon tea without a bit of bunting?

To make the bunting flags please see my previous post just here They are simple to make and the lace trim gives a pretty, vintage vibe. What’s more if you tie your embellishments to the flags rather than sew them on, the bunting can be recycled and dressed up again for the next occasion / holiday season in your calendar…clever eh!

I wanted my Jubilee bunting to be traditional in colour , so of course it had to be red, white and blue, but I wanted it to look pretty and almost understated, so you won’t find any navy or lipstick red here! instead I chose a more muted red tone and coupled it with a mid blue. I also wanted to incorporate the Union Jack and found these gorgeous little buttons, which again are more subtle in tone.

Yarn: Drops Saffran in cherry and denim blue

Buttons: Buttonboxdevon

Pattern Notes

This pattern is written using UK crochet terminology and the stitch abbreviations can be found below. I have included US terminology in brackets if you wish to convert.

Stitch Abbreviations:

Ch- chain / chain (US)                               St – stitch / stitch (US)

Slst – slip stitch / slip stitch (US)              Tr – treble / double crochet (US)

Dc – double crochet / single crochet (US)  

Dc: Insert hook into chain or under both loops of stitch, yarn over and pull through so there are 2 loops on hook, yarn over again and pull through both loops on hook.                  

Tr: Yarn over hook, insert hook into chain or under both loops of stitch, yarn over and pull through so there are 3 loops on hook, yarn over again and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through last 2 loops on hook.

Large Jubilee Rose

In cherry

Leave a long tail, ch 50

Tr in 2nd ch from hook, tr in each ch along, dc in last ch

Ch3, turn

2tr in same space, 3tr in each st a long, dc in last st. Fasten off leaving a long tail

Small Jubilee Rose

Tr in 2nd ch from hook, tr in each ch along, dc in last ch

Ch3, turn

2tr in same space, 3tr in each st a long, dc in last st. Fasten off leaving a long tail

To assemble

Spiral flower in an anti-clockwise direction with one long tail at the front of the rose and one long tail at the back of the rose. With a darning needle take the front tail through to the back of the rose to secure centre petal. Now make several passes of the needle at back of the rose making sure you catch all the layers of the rose. With other tail, thread darning needle and make several more passes at the back of the rose. Tie tails together in a knot to secure. Attach to bunting by passing both tails with a darning needle through to back of flag and tie neatly so tails tuck neatly behind flag and can be easily removed when you wish to re-dress your bunting. Add buttons to string in between flags with hot glue / glue gun.

Hey lovelies, I’m in need of pattern testers again. This time for my Toasty Ear Flap Hat. Written for sizes newborn – large adult.

crochet hat patterncrochet hat pattern

Here’s what I’m looking for.

Do I need to have test crochet before?

Nope… as long as you can crochet and read from a written pattern you are good to apply to be my tester. Infact, I am looking for people with varying abilities of crochet.

Is there a deadline?

Yes…if you are successful in applying for the role of tester I will require you to finish the test within a week of receiving the pattern.

Other than crochet the pattern on time what else do you need me to do? Good question!  I will need you to give me lots of feedback, to include the good, the bad and the ugly! Spot typo’s and grammatical errors and make pattern corrections. I need you to keep in touch even if this means you can’t meet the deadline…life happens, I understand that.

I also require a good quality photo of the finished item that I will be able to use on all social media, my blog and in my Etsy shop…I will of course tag you. Photo’s need to be clear and free from a cluttered background…think insta worthy!

I will require you to be active on social media, ideally you need to be active on Instagram and or facebook with a public account….What does this mean? I would like you to share photo’s with specific hashtags for the pattern, both during and after testing and the pattern is available on general release,

Do I get paid to test a pattern?

Nope…I wish I could say yes, but sadly the answer is no! You also need to be able to provide your own materials…in this case a small quantity of aran / worsted weight yarn and fluffy pompom (or make your own woolly pompom)  However, you will get the pattern fully edited for free and you can choose another of my patterns for free also. If your photo’s are of good quality I will use them here on my blog and in my social media / Etsy shop and I will always tag you so people can head your way!

So if you are interested and can turn this around for me within 7 days,  and you are happy with the terms above, ideally send me a direct message on instagram…you will find me @yarnyrobin.   I have about 4 spaces available and if you are successful I will be in touch within the next week.

Crochet Angel

crochet angel

Isn’t she lovely, isn’t she wonderful. Isn’t she lovely made from love

Lionel Ritchie

Let me start by saying I simply loved hooking every stitch of her. Isn’t she just adorable. I made her for a lovely sidekicksista aka a beautiful crafty friend. I can’t wait to hook another crochet angel. I would love to gift some more and make one for myself too.

The pattern is certainly not for beginners and it took a little deciphering, however it is a beautiful pattern that did not disappoint. I have never hooked with such a small hook before, a 2.5mm! That also took a little practice. The pattern states to hook with a fingering weight yarn held double stranded and gave a lovely denseness to the fabric of the doll.

I love everything about this angel, from her crazy curly hair to her button fastened limbs and little blush cheeks (which were ridiculously good fun to paint on)

Here are the full pattern details

You should also know, before you fall down this crochet angel hole…she has lots of other beautiful dolls to make…you may get hooked!

Lockdown baby…

If you have read my previous posts you will know we are awaiting the birth of a precious niece any day soon.  Little did we plan the birth of someone so longed for and precious in the middle of a global pandemic and a national lockdown!

However, the rainbows that adorn the windows of homes all across the country and that have become the symbol of communities united and a sign of thanks and of hope over the last 8 weeks or so, have inspired me to hook something for babies born in lockdown.

rainbow baby bonnet

You probably could have guessed it would be a bonnet…they have become my favourite things to make!

What do you think?

rainbow baby bonnet

These are available to buy in my shop…just click the picture and you will be magically transported there.  Or if you fancy hooking your own, you can purchase the pattern from my shop too…the pattern is for the basic bonnet so you would just have to change your yarn to the rainbow colours in the last 6 rows (the last row been the main colour of the bonnet). The ears are optional!  Of course if your not sure just pop me a message.

baby bonnet crochet pattern

I have had a lot of love for these and have just sold one to a lovely Mama who is expecting a rainbow baby (a baby born after pregnancy or child loss) and one to a Mama to be who wants to use it as part of her pregnancy announcement.

I really do feel so privileged to make bonnets and hats and to help create special memories for parents and carers.

Oops April…

Apparently April 2020 has been and gone, it has seemingly slipped by silently…drowned out by the roar of Covid-19, and all without as much as a blog post from me.  My sincerest apologies, the NHS has been a crazy place to be employed of late and I have found it difficult to transition from there and slip into the rather relaxed mode at home…it feels like I am straddling two time zones!

baby romper

I have been productive however, and I have a few things to show you and some good patterns I have found to share with you.   The first of which is from one of my all time favourite designers…Mon petit violon.  I have a brand-new niece scheduled to arrive in this world at any moment and I fell in love with the ruffle romper by Mon Petit Violon.  So just before we were locked down I ordered 2 balls of Rico cotton soft in saffron.  As soon as they arrived through the letter box I got my hook out and, well pretty much got lost in the beautiful stitches and shape of this romper.  I oohed and aahhed as I hooked (no, I really did…out loud!).  The pattern is a wonderful hook, it is clearly written and comes in two size options  0 – 6 months and 6 -12 months.  I am hooking the 0 – 6 months as baby is due any day now.

There are plenty of helpful pictures included in the pattern too and although the stitches used are simple, I would suggest you would need some previous knowledge and experience of crochet and  reading patterns so as not to be overwhelmed.  Oh and of course it is very important to test swatch your gauge to begin with!

So there I was oohing and aahhing and hooking away merrily and what I should have done was read the partof the pattern which suggested amounts of yarn, because just as I got to the ruffle part…I ran out of yarn!

I should have ordered 3 balls!  No problem! I thought and hit the button to order more…but an ‘out of stock’ message appeared!  No problem! I thought as I checked the box that said ‘send email when back in stock’.

Three weeks passed and no email…a frantic search online found my heart sinking as shop after shop did not have any balls of saffron left.  In desperation last week I put an appeal out on Instagram to see if any lovely hooker, anywhere in the world had some in their stash to sell to me… and my wonderful #sidekicksistas came to the rescue.  The beautiful Karen alerted me to 3 balls that were available at Laughing Hens!  Now I had never come across this beautiful gem of  shop before…but I hit the order button and am now just waiting for my yarn to arrive, so I can get that ruffle hooked hopefully before my niece arrives!

Talking of patterns I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the support you have given to me with my recent pattern release.

You have really blessed me!

I promise I won’t leave it as long before I next drop by.

Stay safe.
