Crochet Beanies and Necklaces: A Week’s Worth

This is what I have been working on for about a week. I meant to post a couple pictures a few days ago but just kept on making stuff.

And I learned two new stitches. Herringbone Half Double Crochet and Crossover.

Beanies/Caps/Hats with coordinated necklaces.

Made this cute little purse. This is the Herringbone HDC stitch.

  • Yellow hat, 100 Hats by Jean Leinhauser & Rita Weiss. No. 75 on page 143.
  • Yellow purse, a mistake turned good. No pattern.
  • Other caps, used various stitches to create.

    I love the colors on the teal one, but that red and dark blue one is too cute- has a very vintagey feel to it. Do you ever make anything that’s not cute? Or do you have a box of oopses hidden away, far far from the camera? lol

      Ah, ha!! You found me out!! Thanks!!

      Yes, I have several small bags of “oops, now what to do with you.” And a couple bags of unraveled yarn. I look there first when making anything to see what can be recycled. 😀

    The yellow one is really one of a kind! Lovely all the them.

    Thanks, Sharon. Thanks, Naan.

    I am going to make up more like the dark green one with two rows of crossover stitches.

    Hi Donna 🙂
    You wonderful designer, you!

    My favorites here are the red hat and the yellow purse – which is pretty fabulous without a pattern – not to mention that it developed from a mistake!

      Thanks much!! I like those too. That purse started off as a fat bottom purse until I realized immediately after started I had used the wrong hook. I kept going anyway and ended up turning it sideways to make it work. I’ll try it again soon the right way, with the right hook.
