Braided Infinity Scarf - Pattern By Rookie Crafter

I stumbled across a picture of this braided infinity scarf on Pinterest (check out my crochet pattern board here!), and I was immediately intrigued by the idea. I couldn't wait to get my hook going and make one myself!

This is such a simple and easy design, as long as you can chain, double crochet, and braid, you're good! I made two scarves and am working on a third now. It's a great easy project to have on hand when you don't feel like focusing on a complicated pattern or stitch count.

I used 1 skein of Red Heart Soft yarn and an I hook. You can find the instructions on how to make your scarf at Rookie Crafters blog here.

Let me know what you think, and what colors you're going to make yours in! 

Happy Hookin' (:

WIP Wednesday: St. Patrick's Day Inspiration!

It's that time of year again. Spring is right around the corner, and everyone is on Pinterest pinning their ideas for spring cleaning and gardening. I actually opened my windows the other day! 

Here's what I have in progress this week. I've been focusing a lot on my blog lately (creating some awesome new content for you in the future!), so I only have one wip to share today. The pattern is by The Hook Hound on Etsy. It's a really easy to follow pattern with great results! 

I was inspired by this upcoming holiday to make this bold green and tan tote bag! I hope to have it finished by tomorrow but for the sake of this post, here it is! 

The handles will be all tan. Or would you rather it be green in the middle and lined with tan? Leave a comment!

Rasta Slouchy Beanie - Free Crochet Pattern

Happy Sunday everybody! I hope you are having a great weekend. I have a great slouch hat pattern to share with you today, and I'm so excited about it! This hat is so me. The colors, the stitch, the way it fits, I just love it. I love it so much I wrote down the pattern to share with you!

This awesome yarn had previously been used for something else, but I ended up not liking it and putting it down for another day. Two years later... it finally caught my eye on my 'wall of yarn' and I decided to make something fun and funky!

Simple, comfortable, and quick to work up were all on my mind when coming up with this hat.

Red Heart Rocks!

As a blogger, I've learned that I could have a chance to try and review products for other companies for free. It just takes putting yourself out there and being confident with what you do. (which I'm working on) When I found out I might be able to get some free products from Red Heart (I already use their Red Heart Soft and Red Heart Super Saver a lot), I jumped on it! 

A week after sending them an email about my blog, I got back a response. 2 days later I was jumping up and down as my package arrived in the mail. There's nothing I love more than a good surprise, especially when it comes to yarn!

Here's what was in the box:

St Patty's Day Free Crochet Pattern Roundup!

St. Patty's day is right around the corner! To be honest, I'm not Irish, so we don't celebrate a huge amount for St. Patricks day, but that doesn't stop me from having a little bit of fun with the luck of the Irish!
