More Gorgeous Hats!

It’s still hat season, right? Good, ’cause I’m still loving them and I’m still making them! I have a lovely assortment of knit and crochet hat patterns to show you today. The pattern designers are just going nuts! And I’ll tell you about all the goodies that I can’t wait to work with!

This gorgeous chunky cable-knit hat from SoRoBellaCreations is the first on my list. Isn’t it lovely? This pattern comes in 5 sizes and it’s great for a beginner because it knits up with super bulky yarn, so it’s a super fast project. If you need some super bulky yarn, let me recommend We Are Knitters The Wool. I just got my first order this week and it is lovely to look at, lovely to touch and lovely to work with! If you use my referral code (MGMKTKWSM) you can get $10 off your first order!

If you’re looking for a cable knit hat that is a little less bulky, then you could try The Aisling Hat Knitting Pattern from AuntJanetsDesigns. It includes instructions for both DK and worsted weight yarn options and come in 3 different sizes. Also, if you’re looking for some gorgeous faux fur pompoms like that one, I recommend GingerSnapMandie‘s shop. She has a great assortment of beautiful and large (some 6-inch pompoms are on their way to me now!!!) pompoms that will finish of your hat with style!

If you’re in the mood for an adorable fair isle project, this adorable Moosey Slouchy pattern from KnitsNKnacks4U just might be the project for you. It would make a great hat for skiing around the holidays. It has a very festive feel to it!

The Timber Toque knitting pattern from LambandCoDesigns is another festive fair isle hat, which is also made with a super bulky yarn for another quick knit! You’ll be knitting up hats so fast, you’ll have to make new friends to give them to! (And oh.my.goodness, get yourself some huge white pompoms!)

Need to sharpen your knitting skills to take on one of these projects? Check out some online knitting classes from Blueprint!

If you’re not a knitter and prefer to crochet, this Aspen Basketweave Beanie Pattern from WeavingWonder has a lovely texture and slouch to it that is right on point! I’ve been meaning to try this stitch out, so this pattern is going to make my “to make” list (it keeps getting longer all the time!!!)

Here’s another lovely crochet pattern, striped-with-textures, The Sweeney Beanie from HookYarnsandLoops looks cozy and warm with a lovely interest! It looks great for crocheters who get bored with the same stitch fast!

The Amelia Beanie Crochet Pattern from AshleighRaeCrochet is yet another lovely textured crocheted hat pattern (with a swoon-worthy faux fur pom!) to crochet up that has a slouchy, textured-stripe. So fun. I need to make one of these, too!

There’s still plenty of winter ahead for us Canadians, so there’s still plenty of time to make up a lovely handmade hat from an independent designer. Which one will you make? Pin it to share or save for later!

All the best baby blankets

A baby blanket is another great project to work on when learning to knit or crochet. One reason is that gauge isn’t super important, so as long as you’re consistent, it’ll look good. And you get lots of practice stitching making a larger project! I’ve collected some great baby blankets for you to crochet!

The Hat & I has a whole bunch of fun and colourful crocheted blanket patterns to try out, including this gorgeous Flowerghan crochet pattern. Isn’t it sweet? It would make a lovely baby blanket or throw for your living room or bedroom!

I am also kind of obsessed with this adorable Owl Obsession Crochet Pattern. I love the bright fun colours and the adorable big owl eyes really pop on this whimsical little blanket. Kids of all ages would enjoy this lovely little afghan. 

This Rainy Day Flowers crochet blanket pattern is another lovely looking pattern with a pop of colour! The pattern says it will work up to be about 34 inches by 51 inches, but I bet it probably wouldn’t be difficult to figure out how to make it larger if you wanted it as a throw on a larger bed. 

This sweet vintage Baa Baa Lamb Blanket Crochet Pattern looks so fuzzy and inviting and I think it would make a lovely handmade, heirloom gift for a new baby!

I am also in love with this gorgeous Floral Baby Blanket Pattern! I’ve seen it pop up numerous times in my Pinterest feed and each time it does, I fall in love again! 

Corner to corner crochet is a fun way to work a chart and create all sorts of interesting designs. Any kid would love this fun Baby Sharks blanket

I often waffle between my preference for intricacy and simplicity. But I like them both. And you don’t have to choose! In fact, you need simple things to balance out the intricate things! This simple Heart Crocheted Blanket Pattern is a lovely simple contrast to some of the other more intricate patterns.

So, pick up a pattern, some yarn and get crocheting! Time to make some blankets! Follow my Knit & Crochet: Blankets Pinterest board or pin this pin:
