GAGA BRIM HAT

FREE PATTERN 

#KATIEJONESDIY

This month I have fallen in LOVE with the new GAGA album Joanne, I have become a bit obsessed with it, and I realised I had some KnitCraft Hug it out in my stash!!

At the Great Make Escape launch each guest received 2 balls of this super chunky yarn in their goody bags and i thought I would set myself a challenge to make a wide brim hat like the one featured on the cover of the album! 

I whipped this up in the week and am super happy with it! I have put together a FREE pattern download so you can make your own! All you need is a size 8mm Hook and 2 Balls of KnitCraft- Hug it out Yarn (200g) in Baby Pink available from HobbyCraft or any same weight super chunky yarn! It's crocheted nice and tight in this small hook size for yarn weight, so keeps it shape and is nice and stiff!

SPOOKY POMPOMS

 

HAPPY CRAFTIN'

I LOVE a seasonal novelty and Halloween starts the festive autumn season! As much as I love Halloween i hate the waste, cheap disposable costumes are terrible for the workers having to make them and the environment from the plastic fabrics to the landfill they end up in!

This year use the odds and ends of your yarn stashes to make some easy and fabulous Fright night accessories!

Pompom your way into any Halloween party with our Spooky Spider Pom Head Band and Pumpkin Pom earrings! 

Follow our pictoral HOW TO and DIY yourself some fab party pieces!
