Strike Threw Snowcapped Earwarmer/Cowl/Beanie, Free Crohet Pattern, MM_Crochet17

©️2020 MM_Crochet17, wearing The Beanie

”No One is you and that is your power.”

Shanna Skidmore

When you think that something wouldn’t work, but after many tries, the envision finally took place. I just wasn’t going to give up on this, not at all. Many rip it’s and rip it’s ran through this yarn. It’s just like life, when something doesn’t work and you think you have failed yourself, never give up, because trust me it’s there. Put it aside for the time being and pick it back up the day after. Trust me it will work.

If you know me the one things I am a sucker for are super chunky yarn, big hooks, and puffed stitches. They bring out the joy and happiness in my life. It makes me drool and wanting more. This yarn from Lion Brand Yarn in Hometown USA, was the perfect fit for this design and I couldn’t resist it, but you can use any super bulky #6 yarn that you have been eying. Plus, when I found my N hook from Boye Yarn Crafts my heart was in love at first sight. These two pairings are a dream come true. They make items that are super comfy, warm and squishy items, that just make my world a happy place.

I like big hooks and can’t lie. I like big yarn and I can’t lie. I like big puffy stitches and I can’t lie. These three sentences are all that go through my head, when I get to pick them up and work with them. It just makes me chuckle, while my husband just gives me a weird look each and every time. I look back and say, “What?” He tells, “I just love seeing you this happy with whatever you do.”

If you love super fast projects that work up quick, then you are going to enjoy making this. I wanted to incorporate stitches that were simple and easy to work. The single crochet is my best friend, as you can see it’s just a dream to work, as there isn’t much required knowledge. I then decided to add a little texture, by going into the back loop in the next two rows, to give the effect of a strike through. Which, gave its name.

When it came time doing my puff stitches, I wanted a little twist. Instead of doing the traditional puff with a ch1 to close it, I don’t close the stitch, as it groups each together. It just makes it easier for you to go into the stitch, plus gave it a more definite texture that speaks to me. Always love taking a twist and spin just to play on the textures.

One more thing to add before we get to the deets, this free crochet pattern comes as three patterns in one. Who doesn’t like that? I love it so much when this happens.

For making the Beanie, FO and leave a long tail for cinching the top closed. Now, grab your large eyed needle and thread it with the long tail still attached to your hat.

Here you may attach any kind of pompom you would like or you can leave it as is.

Summer Snowball Beanie, Free Crochet Pattern, By MM_Crochet17

©️2020 MM_Crochet17

”Productivity is how you run away from yourself. Creativity is how you become yourself.”

Unknown

The past 2 days, sitting on the couch, a big debate started roaming around my head. Should I or not put this pattern here on my blog, and drop the price in my shop. It was the biggest twilight idea that went off, I did it and I feel so honored to be bringing you this pattern.

This last summer, My husband and I, took an adventure to go to my family reunion which is up in Northern Wyoming where I was born and raised. My husband has never gotten the opportunity to see my hometown. While we were up there, he also got to meet my mother side of the family at a family reunion, so that was good and rewarding that they greeted him with loving arms. 

When we were heading back home, My husband looked over at asked me if I was ok -knowing that I didn’t want to leave that place. I told I want to show you the part of Cody, WY you haven’t seen yet, which was the west portion, like you were heading to the East entrance to Yellowstone National Park. We ended up saying, “what do you say Vie, another Uie?,” and headed towards a magical land, where life disappears to the captivating Mountains and valleys. 

It was like being a fairytale from the books. Being surrounded by mountains and trees that took to the sky like skyscrapers, but better. He told me with tears streaming down like a gushing river, I never want to leave this place. 

Those words were music to my ears. Inspired this design and a memory from my childhood, when looking off into the distance seeing those snowcapped Mountains.

I can remember as a kid there was this wonderful time in June it snowed in the middle of beautiful Sunny day. I told myself this can’t even happen and I am not complaining whatsoever, because it was snowball fight time. We went in the house, put on our gloves still in shorts and tank tops, balled put the fresh white ground and the fight was on. Perfect for cooling off on a 85 degree day. Trust me you are thinking this can’t happen, but it did no joke at all.

You can also purchase this inexpensive pdf here, to have on the go and to be printed.

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked from the bottom up, cinching the top closed.

Pattern is written in Adult size.

Once you have completed the last row of the brim and seaming it together, your stitch count will still the same.

To complete the extended bobble stitch, you need basic knowledge of how to do the Treble Crochet, here I have provided a link to a video that helps me out when I need a recap https://youtu.be/RH3u-wIOuJg hope it will help you out.

When you are working your bobble stitch rows, you will turning your work after previous sc row and after completing your bobble rows.

I have included some notes throughout the pattern, to understand my thinking.

When you get to this point, FO and cut a long tail. This is where we will begin cinching the top closed. To begin the process, you will cinch in every third stitch. When you get to your last stitch, pull your yarn tight to close the middle. Then, begin sewing around the top of your beanie. Then, take your needle and poke it through the middle, so that it will come to the inside of your beanie. Now, you can simply weave in all your ends. You’re finished. You can add a pompom or just leave as is.

I really hope you enjoyed making this beanie, as much as I had the pleasure of designing it for you. Thank you for all your support, I really appreciate it.

Sabi Star Flower Appliqué, Free Crochet Pattern, By MM_Crochet17

©️2020 MM_Crochet17

It’s the season, for the things that we have forgotten through the winter, to bring back the many different colors Mother Nature keeps blessing us with.

Please Note: Don’t sell or claim this pattern in portion or in full as your own, as it belongs to M&M_Crochet. Please don’t use, recreate or sell, any photo, as they belong to M&M_ Crochet. You may share, sell or add it as a decorative piece to your creations, but I encourage you to credit back to me as the pattern designer, using my website: mm-crochet17.com; Instagram: @mm_crochet17 and using #mandmcrochet.

Materials Needed: 5.5mm Hook, 40yds any choice #4 yarn, stitch markers (optional), tapestry needle, and scissors.
