Each of these 5 hats were inspired by one of the patterns linked below. I say they are “inspired” because I changed each one to be custom and unique for each person I am gifting them to.
I have discovered a new way I like to edge my beanie’s and that is with a Front Post Single Crochet. The FPSC makes the edge of the beanie thicker and stronger (while still leaving the stretch) right where the hat needs to feel the most secure.
These patterns are not in any specific order.

There are only 20 days left ’til Christmas. I have been crocheting like a mad woman! I have lots of ends to weave in, pictures to take, and posts to write, but until then… I wanted to put together a post with the 3 free Stitch11 scarves I have written so far. Each one of these are simply put together with basic stitches. You can turn the regular scarves into infinity or the infinity into a regular scarf. The best thing about crocheting scarves is that you can personalize each one for the person you are gifting it to. Have fun with your colors, yarns and even hook sizes to get the look just right for each person on your Christmas list.

The Mini Bunny is a surprise Christmas gift for my daughter. A few months ago she told me she wanted me to make her a small bunny. She held her hands together into a bowl shape and said “I just wanna hold it like this.” At that moment I knew I would be making her one for Christmas.
I wanted to make the bunny small enough so she would be able to care for it like a real baby rabbit. After a couple failed bunnies.. I finally created one that was perfect!
Be sure to pin, share, and save this free crochet pattern. If not for Christmas, this will be perfect for Easter!
I was browsing the beautiful free patterns on Fiber Flux. The Pavement Infinity Scarf caught my eye. The pattern is simple, well written, and easy to follow even while you are half asleep! The perfect pattern for the Christmas gift crunch time!
I didn’t have enough bulky yarn so I used some Sensations Rainbow Boucle that I bought a few months ago at JoAnnes. I used the N- 9 mm crochet hook. I did adjust the width of the infinity scarf to a starting chain of 23. I also plan on making another one with the same starting chain amount as Fiber Flux used.
Be sure to stop in and visit Fiber Flux on her Blog, Facebook, Pinterest, and Ravelry!
Here are 4 more I have made since posting this. I am working on a neon ILTY pink one now too
