I have recently updated my Adult Granny Square Beanie, but haven't found the right time to share it. Just a few days ago, someone asked me about it and I thought I'd go ahead and post it this week, but since I posted my Santa Bauble Ornament Crochet Pattern last week and Christmas was just next week, I decided I wanted to post another Christmas-y crochet project. Originally, I was going to remake the Granny Square Beanie in Christmas colors to post, but once I got started I jumped to an Elf Hat and absolutely LOVE how it came out! I even wore it out the very day I finished and thank goodness! It was very windy that night. Materials: - 350 yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used about half a skein each of Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Red, White and Jelly Bean [Green] - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook - I used my new ergonomic Heaven for Hands Crochet Hooks! - #18 or #20 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends Material Notes: Yarn Alternatives: Red Heart's With Love. Keep in mind that different yarns will work up a little bit differently in the sizing. This particular pattern was written using Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn because this is one of the yarns that I use the most. Working with other worsted weight yarns could produce a slightly smaller or larger product so make sure to check your gauge! Time Spent: I had this hat ready to go in just about two hours including my weaving. Measurements: This hat will fit the average adult/teen head of 22-24". This is a 5 page PDF containing full written instructions and 1 photo.

I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about six years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc. I currently craft full time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback! I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy. Fifteen percent of every purchase made from me will be donated to aid in the medical advances and new discoveries on the fight against Retinoblastoma, blindness and other eye diseases. Donations go to the National Retinoblastoma Research and Support Foundation headed by Dr. Timothy Murray If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
