Getting Through the Pattern Stash


I’m sure many crocheters and knitters out there would agree that they have a long list of patterns to try and not enough time to make them all!  At the beginning of 2013 I took one of those free calendars and marked up the entire thing with patterns I want to promote/test out every month.  Trying to stick to it is a little difficult sometimes when life gets busy but for the most part I’ve been keeping on track.  I’ve scratched a few patterns off the “must make” list including:

 
These tiaras/crowns (pattern by All Tied Up In Knots).
 

 
This flower beanie (Perenni hat pattern by Addydae Designs).

 
 
This prairie-style bonnet (pattern by Creations by Valorie).
 
 
This chevron bonnet (pattern by Simply Hookin It).

 
 
This team football helmet (adapted from the pattern by Cute & Crafty Crochet).
 

I’ve also made some slippers (can’t believe I don’t have photos of them!) for a friend’s birthday.


What’s coming up you ask?  More team sports inspired hats!  I have plans to offer another football inspired hat (with or without earflaps), hockey-inspired hats, fun character hats for kids (and grown-ups!) to play dress-up every day, on Halloween or just to look awesome in the winter!

I’d love to make something for YOU!  You can place your custom order with me via email at allisonbarnecollection [at] gmail [dot] com, or you can message me on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/AllisonBarnesCollection
