I am a homeschooling mom of one who has been known to crochet while giving spelling tests! I first learned to crochet and knit from my grandmother. It seemed to me that her hands were always busy with something! As I got older and began college and working full-time, crafting fell by the wayside for me. That is until one day when I was facing a 7 day car trip. I knew audiobooks and itunes would only get me through so many days. I spent some time trying to find something portable and fun to help me pass the time. I stumbled upon a set of crochet hooks I had purchased about a year ago with the intention of picking up crochet again. Armed with that set of hooks, a few skeins of yarn and a few online patterns and tutorials I had printed out, I was ready to take on the road trip. I finished my first 3 baby hats in 2 days. After that I was hooked.
When I showed the hats to my photographer sister in law, she turned me on to the photography prop baby hat craze and I have been designing hats & headbands ever since. My renewed interest inspired my blog & Etsy shop.
I really enjoy coming up with original designs and finding a new ways to combine stitches in interesting patterns. I am learning new techniques all the time and have rediscovered my creative side! I also sew a bit, but I love crochet for it's unique textures, portability, and calming effect. I am always available for questions and comments on my blog & Facebook. I love helping other get started in crochet!
This hat works up very quickly. You can make one in less than 30 minutes! This pattern includes direction for both the pixie hat & beanie with or without the chin strap so it is like getting 4 patterns for the price of one! Makes a super cute gift and adorable photography prop.
