Free Crochet Lobster Hat Pattern

This free crochet Lobster Hat pattern is sure to be a hit at Halloween. My little guy actually just wears it for pretend play all the time as well. It’s a beginner pattern and you’ll learn a few amigurumi tricks along the way. The hat works really well as a cut crustacean photo prop. I’ve written the animal hat pattern in five sizes – from Newborn to child. You can use your favorite crochet hat and just skip down to the Lobster bits or you can follow the simple double crochet hat pattern with a ribbed brim that’s included. (Always handy to have when you need to whip up a speedy hat!) This pattern is free to use on my site or you can purchase a printable Pdf version from my Ravelry store HERE

Seamless Double Crochet Join

Ever wondered how to get rid of that clumsy seam when you make a hat with double crochet stitches? When I first started making hats this was my number one problem.

Hurricane post

Hi guys!

I really appreciate you checking out crochettherapy.  It means a lot to me to have so many readers and I am happy every day to be in the midst of all my fellow crocheters!

Our family had to evacuate due to Hurricane Irma and I am writing this post because there is a good possibility that I wont have power or internet until the end of September.

I will try to check in when I get the chance. I have already heard that our house is in good shape without major damage.  We are lucky and I really wish everyone affected by the recent natural disasters all the best.  Going through something like this can be so scary but when I witnessed how we all pulled together,  no matter our backgrounds or beliefs ,  I feel there is hope for humanity yet!

Good luck to everyone and I am truly happy to be part of this loving community of crafters 💙

I worked at a cute coffee shop together with a very talented baker. His cupcake creations inspired me to make these little guys. Use them as toys instead of plastic or add a string to make ornaments. I added a carrot because Easter is coming up – how cute will they look in an Easter basket!? Keep reading for the free crochet cupcake pattern! Continue Reading

crochet cable hat pattern

crochet cable hat free pattern

As promised, I have written up my favorite cable crochet hat pattern and want to share it with you here.  My little man is just learning to dress himself (not always in his own clothes!) and he LOVES hats. Especially pom pom hats, so I made this one for him. This crochet cable hat will keep his head nice and warm in colder climates as it is made with 100% wool. I felt the classic look of cables would be complimented by a classic fiber choice and I just love the result!
