Bearded beanies

Earflaps beanies

My auntie gave my baby son a knitted earflap beanie when he was born, and I just love it. It buttons up at the bottom, which is fantastic now that he’s old enough to rip off any hat or beanie that is put on his head. I’ve decided he needs more beanies like this, so I’m on the hunt for a good crochet pattern. Here’s a few I thought I’d share from various etsy sellers:

Also known as fingerless gloves, I’m just obsessed with these at the moment. I went on a search to find one or two good patterns on the net, but came up with faaaaar too many to choose from! Here’s a selection of 27:

The more I crochet, the more I realise I just love white yarn. There’s just something so comforting in seeing those white stitches, isn’t there? Or is that just me? Probably 🙂

Queen Anne’s Lace Scarf

My next project will have to be this scarf that I stumbled upon. It’s the Queen Anne’s lace scarf pattern and looks divine. The pattern uses basic stitches, so it’s definitely worth giving it a go. I’m completely in love with it. In fact, I might just go start one now…

You can find the free pattern here.
