PATTERN DETAILS

I wanted to make a toque (otherwise known as a beanie with earflaps) for my 1 year old son. I had a hard time finding a pattern that actually fitted him, so I made my own. There are a variety of cute hats out there for toddlers - this one has two slug antennae, one big googly eye and a tooth that sticks out - to recognise that my son is teething like crazy right now. This pattern can be made in any colour you want. You can customise your slug monster so that each one is unique by making different numbers of eyes, antennae and teeth. It makes a great gift and it is so quick to crochet up that I finished it in a day. The secret? A big hook! Enjoy. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, half double crochet two stitches together, surface crochet, fasten off GAUGE 1 hdc = 7.5 mm SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Directions are given for sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-2 years and 3-5 years.

I rarely repeat a pattern - I always enjoy the challenge of making something new and different. I love functional aesthetics. A design should be useful at the same time as expressing the beauty and personality of the creator and the owner. I love my husband, sons and cat and I love creating yarn projects for my family. I am a handbag addict, into kickboxing, Doctor Who, reading, cooking, gardening and of course kitting and crochet.
