Cabled Beanie

Do you remember when I found that my

Well I finally made something with it!

I got this pattern from All About Ami

I think it still needs a pompom but 1 ball of yarn
left me with only a few metres to try and make one.

I have also heavily modified this pattern as 
I crochet tightly and didn't want it to
be too bulky at the top where you pull it together.

Chunky Pink, Purple and White Kids Beanie

I've made another chunky winter beanie.
This one is a shell stitch in 
white, pink and purple
and fits roughly 18 months - 3/4 years.

It can be found on sale HERE

Once again I've used MyBoshie yarn
and a 6mm hook to create this beanie.

Chunky Winter Blue Beanie

Here is a Chunky Winter Beanie
in Blue, Turquoise and White Stripes, 
topped with a mega pom pom in white.

This one is sized 2-4 years roughly
and it currently for sale HERE
(Australia customer only, sorry)

I have used MyBoshi Yarn to make this
with a 6mm hook as called for.

It's a 30% wool, 70% polyacrylic yarn that is
quite cosy and warm to use and wear.

I love the colour combo's available in this yarn
and would love to make more beanies!

Making Pom Poms *sigh*

I love pom poms! 
They make everything cuter and are so versatile!

I hate making pom poms.
Well the part I actually hate is the fact that no matter
what way I make them, there are still
strands that can be pulled out!

I feel like I will forever be trying to find a way
to make a yarn pom pom where the strands can't
be easily pulled out, but I'm losing hope.

I did try a new method of making a pom pom
which you can find here
to sit atop this chunky beanie (coming soon!)
