Ruffly Santa Scarf

I started with this pattern
then saw this pattern
Sooooo what I ended up doing was this:

Susan Bates J hook
Using Red Worsted Weight acrylic yarn
Chain 213 (My Birthday Feb 13) LOL
Row 1 - 1 DC in each chain, chain 2, turn
Row 2 - 2 DC's in each DC of Row 1, chain 2, turn
Row 3 - 3 DC's in each DC of Row 2, finish off
Row 4 - (Done in a White fun fur type yarn) Attach yarn in first DC of Row 3, 1 SC in each stitch across to the end
Finish off, weave in ends, and Admire!!!!

(This turned out to be very long, so I suggest to make a chain as long as your arms stretched fingertip to fingertip)
FYI: Wooly Wormhead uses British terms, so for American terms, substitute SC for DC and DC for TREBLE (See below)

Row 1 - SC to end (SC once into each chain)

Row 2 - DC twice into each chain (increase row)

Row 3 - DC twice into each chain (increase row)

R0w 4 - DC once into each chain

Row 5 - SC into each chain

Winter Crochet Patterns

Here are some of my favorite FREE winter crochet patterns:

Crochet Calorimetry
Ever since I saw the Calorimetry in Knitty, I have wished for a crochet equivalent. Well, my wish has come true!
Thanks to this blog!
They work up quickly and they will make nice Christmas gifts (or whichever winter holiday you celebrate )

These are so much nicer than trying to keep a scarf wrapped around your neck, and much safer for those kids that ride the school bus. It can be pulled up over your mouth and nose, or worn slouched down around your neck. It also works well pulled up over your ears like a wide headband.

Bev's Marvelous Mittens
These are so easy and she explains how to make any size you need

Thanks to yarnluver on Crochetville for this post: where she shows some boys and girls hats she made.
She used this pattern from yarncat for the girls hats
She made up her own pattern for the boys hats:

Ski Mask (aka Ninja Mask)
These are just too cute! Fun and functional as well. Sizes listed for the whole family.

Loong time, no Blogging

Geez.... I can't believe it has been over a year since I last posted in here......
I have gone thru spurts of major crocheting, then I become un-inspired and don't crochet for months BUT I have now opened up my own etsy shop so I have been digging up some stuff to sell and some new patterns to create too! Have a look and if there is something you would like to see, let me know! I have some WIP's to finish up too that should be posted soon as well.
