Crocheted Tams/Matching Scarf

I used the free Tam pattern on the Lion Brand website to make myself a sparkly white tam out of Red Heart Shimmer worsted weight yarn and my friend a teal tam out of Red Heart Soft worsted weight yarn. I love this pattern, except I find crocheting the ridge on the bottom to be very tedious.

I made myself a sparkly white scarf out of the Red Heart Shimmer yarn to match my tam. I used the free Lacy Bobble Scarf pattern on the Red Heart website.

Crocheted Curly Scarves

I love the Curlicue Scarf scarf pattern on the Lion Brand website. It's wicked easy and quick.

 For this scarf I used Red Heart  Soft worsted weight yarn in Jeweltone, which I absolutely love.

I didn't keep this one for myself because I thought it was too narrow and I ran out of yarn to make it any wider.

I made this curly scarf for my friend out of Red Heart Economy Super Saver worsted weight yarn in Lavender.

The color is - in my opinion - weird for a clothing/apparel/accessory type project, but I had so much left over from my granny square blanket that I figured I would use it.

Crocheted Fiesta Hat and Mittens

I crocheted my friend a hat and mittens set out of Red Heart Fiesta worsted weight yarn in Country Blue.

I used the free Ballpark Hat pattern on the Lion Brand website and  free Crochet Mittens for All pattern on the Red Heart website.
I also used the mitten pattern to crochet my mom a pair of mittens out of Bernat Super Value worsted weight yarn.

Granny Square Afghan

 The next thing I crocheted was this granny square afghan.

The multicolored yarn is Bernat Super Value Solids worsted weight yarn in Pizazz Ombre.

The pink yarn is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Baby aran weight yarn in Berrylicious.

The other colors are Red Heart Super Saver Economy worsted weight yarn in White, Bright Yellow, Lavender, and Turqua.

I got the popcorn border pattern from the book 50 More Crocheted Afghan Borders.

Crocheted Ridged Scarves

The first thing I crocheted that wasn't a hat was this ridged scarf.

I used the free Easy-Wear Scarf pattern on the Lion Brand website.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Economy worsted weight yarn in Artist Print.

This is also the Easy-Wear Scarf pattern.

I used Bernat Super Value worsted weight yarn.

The yarn is wicked cute. It's this blue color with a brownish undertone. The picture doesn't do it justice.

This scarf is an extra thick version of the Easy-Wear Scarf using size 6 extra bulky yarn and a bigger crochet hook.

I used the free Breezy Scarf Pattern on the Lion Brand website.

I used Lion Brand's Hometown USA yarn.


I like my cat and I like crafts. I also like making people look at pictures of both. Welcome to my blog.

I've been crocheting since I was 14 - about 9 years - but I only ever made 2-strand hats using my own personal pattern. For example:


I expanded my crocheting horizons in October 2011 when I started making scarves, afghans, and other stuff.

I started knitting in January 2012.

I have a Ravelry account too.

I sewed for a few months in high school but picked it back up again in February 2012.

I hope someone actually looks at this....
