Introducing the Glam Magic Cable Bun Hat!
The Glam Magic Cable Bun Hat comes in 3 different sizes: Adult 22", Teen 20", & Child 18".
I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn (#3 weight) & a 4mm hook.
You can view the pattern here:
To celebrate my 100th pattern release, I (and all the amazing sponsors below) will be giving away PRIZES!!
I needed to make a bunch of Pompom Makers for my daughter's class that were easy for kids to use. The kids were going to make pompom "Love Bugs" for a Valentine's Day activity & the kids needed to make the "Love Bugs" all by themselves. So I created an easy, DIY Pompom Maker that anyone can use!
"These Zero Calorie donuts are EASY, FAST, & sooo yummy (with no guilt!). You can work up the regular size in less than an hour, so you will be "baking" dozens in no time!
In addition to the Regular donut size, I have also included instructions for Mini, Large, & XL Donuts!!"
Keep scrolling to the bottom for the EXTRA BONUS size!!!
First, let talk about what is Planned Pooling.
Planned pooling is a technique where you intentionally work the colors of a multi-colored skein of yarn to make a specific design or color effect when you crochet.
Notice the word "intentionally" - means that if you do a little pre-planning, you can make the colors pool the way they should without having to frog your work a million times. And it will work the 1st time, every time!
So now it is time to crochet! Start at the beginning of your yarn (does not have to be a specific place, you will see why later). You can use any hook size that you like - hook size will only change the the total size of your piece slightly, but is not a determination to achieve planned pooling. Start chaining evenly until you get to the end of one entire color sequence..
Start crocheting your 1st row of pattern stitches. I am using the Granite/Moss St pattern by Moogly. Work the 1st row through your entire color sequence. You will have leftover chains from your beginning chain because Sc take more yarn to work. There are 33 sc/ch starting from the very 1st sc.
But, THIS is where the magic happens.....
Pull out 1 sc & 1 ch from the end of your 1st row (or you can add 1 more ch & sc - the Argyle pattern will still come out, so it is up to you which one you choose).
Then, continue to crochet the normal Granite/Moss Stitch pattern for at least 10-14 rows to see if Argyle pattern comes out the way you want.
Once you are finished, you will undo the unworked chains from the beginning chain & secure the tail with a knot. Then weave in all ends!
