Very Hungry Caterpillar Crochet Baby Costume

UPDATE 2/2/23: This was a super fun commission! And semi-related, I have a free Very Hungry Caterpillar plushie pattern available here ! You can check my Etsy shop for my current inventory as well as see if I'm accepting commissions at the moment! Oh, man. So an old pal of mine from high school needed to suit up her babyspawn for Halloween. Crochet and knit baby costumes are super in right now? She said to me, "Hey, can you make a Very Hungry Caterpillar costume?" And I responded with, "I suppose so. Measure your baby." I believe I've said before that I know nothing about babies. I still know nothing about babies and I need exact measurements to make baby things. Long story short - super fun project, took about a day and a half. It's also really cute. Laying flat doesn't do it justice. I wish I'd had a baby on hand to model this creation, but I only have cats. p.s. I can whip up a pattern for this if anyone is interested. I mad

Ka Symbol FREE Colorwork Chart

UPDATE 2/2/23: I believe I have another version of this that's a tad smaller. I knit this one on a hat. I remember the hat because I hated it. If I were to remake said hat today, you bet your ass I would use duplicate stitch for the symbol.   Anywho, I'll update this if I ever find the other version of the chart. I used it for a scarf but I don't know where I saved it and clearly didn't name it something that made sense. Oops.   If you like my free stuff, please check out my Etsy inventory and pay for some stuff. Maybe. If you want! No pressure. Follow me on Facebook for updates about free stuff!     I only ever used this chart once, but here it is for anyone that wants it! Click it for full size. The finished pattern is fairly large (like the whole side of a knit hat if you use worsted weight yarn and size 7 needles). It should be fine for tapestry crochet as well as knitting. Happy Free Pattern Friday!

Lorelai's Bigfoot Hat Colorwork Chart

UPDATE 1/26/23: If you're looking for the whole hat pattern then you should be over here ! I usually have a few of these hats in stock in my shop ! You can also request them in custom colors. The gray and white ones tend to go fast! I have more patterns available on Ravelry and you should also check out my Ko-Fi page !   EDIT (11/6/14): I updated the chart with a few minor changes. Like every other girl in high school during the early 2000s, I watched Gilmore Girls . And like every other girl that was in high school during the early 2000s, I'm rewatching this ridiculous-amazingly-awful show on Netflix. Midway through the first season Lorelai wears this beautiful bigfoot hat and I couldn't help but make a chart. I don't have time to make the hat at this second, but you totally can. I don't think I got the chart 100% accurate because it's hard to see, but it's definitely a starting point. Feel free to tweak it. Make a hat, put sasquatches on a sweat

Dark Tower Beam Guardian Scarf - Lion and Eagle

UPDATE 2/2/23: My Dark Tower stuff was so popular! I also priced it very very low. I'm sort of excited to get the charts together for the Tower crafters out there! I absolutely want people to make their own Beam Guardian scarves! I also love that staghorn cable! I got my cable needle out and I'm going to do SOMETHING with some staghorn soon! I swear it! Anyway, I don't have any Tower goodies in stock right now, but check out my Etsy to see when commissions are open and take a look at my other inventory! And swing by my Ko-Fi page too! Last but not least! If you want the latest updates (like when the Beam Guardian patterns are available) then you should follow me on Facebook !  Well, this scarf sold within a few hours of me listing it so here are some pictures. It's in the mail today for the lucky person that managed to buy it before anyone else. :) Down at the bottom is also a picture of the next Turtle and Bear scarf. I'm using Lion Brand Heartland 'Grand

WIP Wednesday - Beam Guardian Scarf and More!

UPDATE 2/2/23: Once again as I do this blog housekeeping, I have come upon a post that does not contain any links. Why in the world did I do a post with no links to the pertinent things? Also, I hate Gilmore Girls. I don't think I hated it until I watched it as an adult after making this post.  Beam Guardian patterns coming soon! Follow me on Facebook for the latest updates, so you don't miss them! And please check out my current shop inventory on Etsy ! Happy Wednesday! Happy October 1st! Happy Gilmore Girls is now on Netflix Day! I'm up to a couple different things - all of which are completely unrelated. Dark Tower Beam Guardian Scarf - Lion and Eagle At this exact moment the Lion and Eagle scarf is at 23" and I'm hoping to get at least 10" more done today. Maybe more. I'm really flying through this thing and I'm super happy with the lion. I need to go back and look at the eagle pattern I made again. Each time I look at it, I like it less. T
