Fuzzy Beanie

Like I mentioned earlier, I’ve been in a beanie mood lately.

For Christmas ages ago I got this really awesome yarn ball. Since then I have been making these amazingly soft hats and scarves.

Today’s feature is a child’s beanie I made.

While I couldn’t find the exact product to post here, here is a similar yarn.

To create this I used the Lion Brand Yarn pattern for a Chemo Cap.

I used the one yarn instead of the combination of two that the pattern called for, I found that the thicker feathers covered the stitches nicely, and since it is rather warm where I live, I figured less yarn would be better.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I like my hats to fit snugly around the head, so I began with an inch of a 2×2 rib stitch before I began working the pattern.

The finished product came out beautifully. This pattern calls for the use of size 13 needles, so the project only took less than an hour. Not bad for such a cute outcome!

Fuzzy Flip-Flops

I actually made these a few years ago, but I still think they are absolutely adorable.

I can’t remember where I got the idea to make these. I think it was a a newspaper article about something similar because I can remember saying to myself “I can do that.”

I created these from a pair of dollar store flip-flops and used Fun Fur yarn (my absolute favorite yarn to work with).

I started by creating two little “scarves” for each flip flop using a garter stitch. The “scarves” were then sewn around the plastic part of the flip-flops, and with that had a created an amazing pair of fuzzy flip-flops.

The best part about these is they are so comfortable that they feel more like a pair of slippers than shoes.
