Sun Hat for Alex Transformed!

IMG_7728It was brought to my attention that the Sun Hat for Alex I made would make an excellent sun hat for chemo patients.  I had a request to include an adult size to my pattern for just that reason.  I did so, and as I was whipping up the sun hat, I decided to play around and do a little augmenting and turn it into a beanie.

This beanie can be used in the spring, summer or fall.  It features the same shell stitch as the Sun Hat for Alex, but doesn’t have the brim; instead this has a pretty scalloped edge.  Make it with cotton for those warm months or with a wool or a wool-blend worsted weight yarn for those cooler temperatures.  I love the way this hat turned out.

This pattern is written for toddlers 1-3 (18″-19″), children 4-10 (19″-21″), and female adult (21″-23″).

This pattern has been tested, however if you should come across any mistakes, please do not hesitate to comment or send me a message, after all…we’re only human!

Easy Chunky Toque

IMG_7662With the extreme cold weather upon us I decided to make some super warm toques and cowls.  This pattern works up really quick using super bulky wool yarn, and is extremely warm.

This patter is written in the following sizes: children 4-12 (19.5″-21″), teens 13-17 (21″-23″), and adult 18+ (23″-24.5″).  If you should come across any errors, please feel free to comment and let me know.

Optional Increase your hook size for a looser fit.

**Matching cowl coming soon.
