I found some time while watching Two and a Half Men to make this. The crocheting portion went like a breeze, the time consuming part was sewing the metal snap and then sewing on the button (… to cover up all the stitches from sewing in half of the metal snap.

Materials: black 100% acrylic yarn, 1 black metal snap, 1 red plastic button with anchors (see second photo for more detail)

Model: Sophie

My friend Charlene was having a birthday, so I wanted to make her something. I found this pattern a while ago, but never had the time to make it (and well, with summer, all I really have is time).

The pattern is called “Beanie Brim Cap” by Hannah Levine. The pattern is available for free and you can find it at

In the photos, it’s being modeled by one of my teddy bears (Elijah) and the keyboard of my laptop.

Upcoming baby project

I’m currently in the process of designing a baby hat for a coworker’s soon-to-be-born baby. I’m not sure how well it’s going to go, last time I made a baby hat it was way too big! But hopefully it’ll fit (or just be a little bit too big). I’m not sure how it’s going to look yet, I have a bunch of drawings done so far. I’m torn between a bear, a monkey and a frog for the design. I don’t really have appropriate colours for any of them, so I’d be buying new yarn regardless (also, I do have appropriate colours for one of them, but it’s not machine washable and I think it’d be a good idea to use washing machine-friendly yarn, especially for something for a baby!). So that’s the baby hat that I’m going to be making soon. I’ll probably go shopping for yarn colours on Saturday, maybe.

So tell me what you think:
Bear hat?
Monkey hat?
Frog hat?
Some weird combination of the three? (… I don’t think I’ll be making three, unless I’m feeling very inspired, lol)
