Snowflake Mittens, Free Crochet Pattern










This is my first attempt at Tapestry crochet and I must say I absolutely love the result. I worked really hard on this pattern, testing and retesting it until my brain exploded. Making the chart was also a tedious but fun experience. Since it is my first attempt, I am a little nervous. So feel free to email me if you find any errors. 

I would love to make it in grey next. What color would you make your mittens in? Leave a comment below. I hope you will enjoy this free pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it.

Heidi Hooded Scarf, Free Crochet Pattern

I hope you will enjoy working on this hooded scarf crochet pattern and it will keep you warm in the coming cold months. This Scarfie yarn was in my stash since last winter. I regretted buying it and wondered what I would make with it. I was convinced I made a bad choice until I actually started making the hood for this scarf. It was a little hard to see my stitches in the black parts but other than that the yarn was nice to work with, and I love the look of single ply yarns. I was surprised to see that this yarn was labeled Bulky weight. I would consider it close to a worsted weight yarn in thickness. What do you think of this yarn?
