Lion Heart Blanket.

I think every time I post a new blanket pattern I say it’s my new favorite. Truthfully, I don’t have just one favorite. I love blankets that have beautiful colors and lots of texture.

I love, love, love Attic 24’s Cosy Stripes Blanket. I posted about a couple of weeks ago. For the blanket I recently completed I wanted to do a chevron version of it. After doing looking at loads of chevron and granny stripe patterns, I came up with a pattern of my own. It works up super quick. I did it in just a few days.

Because this blanket was inspired by Attic 24’s Cosy Stripe Blanket, I decided to use her Cosy Blanket Edging. The only change that I made was I did a round of SC as the first row instead of a row of DC.

Row 1: Graphite.
Row 2: White.
Row 3: Sungold.
Row 4: Navy

The finished blanket measures approximately 40” x 43” with stripes positioned vertically. If you would like to make the blanket longer, just add more rows.

To personalize this blanket, I used Moogly’s Lowercase Alphabet to put the little guy’s name on it. This is one of my favorite ways to personalize blankets.



I hope you all find this pattern easy to follow. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. As always, I would love to see your work. Use the #viewfrommyhook on Instagram.

Happy Hooking!

Free Pattern Friday: Kassia Empire Waist Dress (2-4 years)

Happy Friday and Happy Independence Day!

It's been a while since I posted a free pattern. I finally have a day off today to share one with all of you.

If you've been on Pinterest, I'm sure you've seen the crochet top and tulle bottom dresses. I fell in love the first time I saw one. I haven't been able to find a pattern I love so I thought I'd write one and share it with all of you. I hope it's easy to read and not confusing.

Pattern is written in American terms. You can sell items made from this pattern. Please do not recreate pattern or represent as your own.

Flower Crown Animal Hats

I don’t know about you all, but I am ready for spring. I am ready for warm weather, the Easter season, my birthday, my husband’s birthday, and our wedding anniversary. (Okay, maybe I just realized how busy we are going to be in a month or two.)
Spring fever gave me the inspiration to make the animal hats I have been wanted to make since the beginning of January. I’ve seen such cute knitted versions on Pinterest, but I hadn’t come across a crochet pattern for any of them. What do I do when I can’t find a pattern? Come up with one myself.
I hope you all enjoy making them as much as I did.

Flower Crown Unicorn Hat.

Do you ever have an idea that will not leave you alone until you execute it? That’s how I feel about this new hat pattern. I have two orders I should be working on, but I couldn’t focus on either one of them until this hat pattern came to fruition.
After the release of my Flower Crown Animal Hats, I heard the suggestion of releasing a child size hat pattern. So here it is. I am still working on the adult size pattern as well as the idea tomake a more masculine version. Hopefully, I will be able to bring that to you next week.
