Painted Moss Cowl

Have you seen the beautiful Caron x Pantone yarns at Michael's? The first time I saw it in the aisles, I fell in love. And I knew it I wanted to design a pattern with it. And the Painted Moss Cowl was born.


This yarn is so soft and squishy, and the colors all flow beautifully from one to the other. I designed this cowl to be quick and easy and to not have to weave in a lot of ends (because we all know I hate weaving in ends).


The child size uses one skein & the adult size uses two. It makes a perfect cozy single loop cowl, and it's adorable for matching sets. 


The cowl is worked flat as a corner-to-corner moss stitch pattern and then seamed to form the cowl. The colors are faded in from one to another for a beautiful, simple and modern look. 


I am so happy with this pattern and I hope you love it to. You can purchase your own copy on Ravelry. If you make one, I'd love to see it. Please consider uploading a project page to ravelry (this is really helpful for designers) and tagging me on Instagram @samsqueak with #paintedmosscowl. 

I can't wait to see your beautiful cowls!

Mini Crochet Owl Pendant

So gift giving...it's not my love language. But I do love to make gifts. And if you're getting a gift from me there's a pretty good chance that at least part of it will be handmade, and most likely it will involve yarn (or at least a crochet hook). (This statement pretty much only applies to the women in my life. I don't often make things for guys - I find guys too hard to make things for). 

So, my niece is turning 14. I'm not sure how that has happened - because I think it was just yesterday that I was dating my now husband and met this adorable little redheaded three year old fireball. But apparently it was like 11 years ago and time is moving too fast and I might be getting old. Moving on.

I hear that kids these days are into owls. And mustaches. (at least this kid is). (am I still allowed to call her a kid at 14?). So I decided to try something new and design an owl necklace. And I'm really happy with how it turned out! (Hopefully she will be too...)

Crochet Mustache Bracelet

A few days ago I showed you the tiny owl pendant I made for my niece's 14th birthday. As the second part of her present, I whipped up this super fast mustache bracelet. Seriously. This took maybe 15 minutes. And I think that's an exaggeration. 
I have to admit, I don't really understand the whole mustache thing. But apparently they're in. If you have a teenager who's into mustaches - here's the free pattern for you!

Ollie the Owl - Free Crochet Pattern

Who doesn't love owls? I know there are tons of crochet owl patterns out there - but I'd like to take a moment to add my own little hoot to the crochet owl community.

So without further ado, I would like to introduce you to Ollie.
He's just about 2.5 inches tall and possibly my favorite thing to make. I've been making Ollie's and sending them out into the world since 2008. I used to sell his pattern, but I've decided that the world needs more of these little hoots flying around. So I'm making his pattern free. Lucky you!

This little Ollie above is made of cotton yarn. But I have a soft spot for felted Ollie's. They shrink up to about 2 inches tall and are just the sweetest fuzzy little things.
You want to make one, right? Well here you go!
