I found some awesome hat patterns when trying to make a nice fitted hat but this one had to be my favorite when I saw how it came out. It is a super snug perfect fit. It has holes so it is suffocatingly warm either. It is a perfect fall hat to transition into the colder temps of winter. It is about 7 inches long from top to bottom with a scalloped edge.

This handmade hat was made with tons of love.   It is machine washable on the hand wash or gentle cycle. Please lay flat to dry!

Washing Instructions: Machine Washable (be gentle!), Lay flat to dry

Mossy Moss Hat

While wandering around Odd Lot in Pennsylvania I found a small section with yarn. I am famous for buying tons of scrapbooking stuff at this store, I absolutely love it there. This specific yarn looked interesting and hard to work with, so naturally I had to have it. It is a curly yarn and has a gray base color with bright greens and blues throughout it.

This handmade hat was made with tons of love.  This piece is fun, different and because of the gradients and variation of colors it can be paired with many different hues. It is hand washable and should be layed flat to dry. No ironing.

Size: Small-Medium Adult Female

Color: Gray, Green, Blue

Material: 95% Wool, 5% Polyamide

Washing Instructions: Hand wash ONLY, lay flat to dry, no ironing

Candy Necklace Scarf

Price: $35.00 (USD) includes shipping

WARNING: I ADVISE AGAINST EATING THIS SCARF, although it does look edible!

This is the second in the collection of scarves that have been inspired by my neighbor who knits amazingness. I found this metallic yarn and decided to combine it with the white to brighten it up. Now the white yarn is a whole nother <— (I know that is not a word, but I like it anyway) story, which I will clearly tell below.

I went to a great store in Pearl River, NY called the Stitchery. They had floor to ceiling displays of breathtaking yarn. I found some incredible yarn to take home. While my mom and I were checking out, we were discussing donating percentages of sales to charity and the super sweet woman behind the counter told me she had a bag of white acrylic yarn she would love to donate. I gladly accepted and promised to furnish pictures of all the pieces I created with this yarn.

This handmade scarf was stitched using the double crochet stitch and made with tons of love (not to mention fun). Half of the scarf was crocheted with both the metallic fiber and the white yarn together. Two inches or so of the opposite end was done the same with the remainder of the side just white. The ends and the white portion are all edged with a pastel colored fur yarn. It is fuzzy, fun and comfy.

Length: approximately 62 inches long by 4 1/4 wide

Color: White with metallic and non metallic pastels

Material: White Yarn = Acrylic, Fur Yarn = Polyester, Metallicy Yarn = 26% Viscose, 18% Dralon, 56% Polyamide <— I have no idea what these last three are, but it is super soft!

Washing Instructions: Hand wash ONLY, lay flat to dry, no ironing

“In your face!” Pink scarf

Click on the pictures they get bigger!!!


Price: $32.00 (USD) includes shipping

So on Halloween I went to trick or treat at one of my beloved neighbor’s houses….my trick or treating antics are pretty limited considering I am 28 😉

While I was there she showed me some beautiful knitted stuff she was making with two different threads together at the same time….so that is where this idea came from.

This handmade scarf was stitched using the double crochet stitch and made with tons of love. I definitely had a hard time parting with it, as I do love it a LOT. It is funky, and fun, and totally in your face! The pink is amazing by itself, but may be too “in your face” for some, so I used a white and navy thread to calm the pink down a little bit. The combination is amazing. It really stands out. It has fringe on the end of each side and is a substantially long scarf so you can wrap it for uber warmth. It is very soft as it is made out of acrylic. It can be machine washed but I always recommend using a gentle cycle in a knit bag or just hand-washing it. The thread does say it can be machine dryed but I would not if I were laundering it.

So here’s the nitty gritty:

Length: approx 70 inches long (fringe to fringe) by 3 1/2 inches wide

Color: navy blue and white with shocking hot pink

Material: Mostly Acrylic

Washing Instructions: Machine Washable (be gentle), hang to dry
