Cozy Head Warmer (Crochet)
Christmas is right around the corner, and if you’re a procrastinator like me, you’re probably scrambling to get together the handmade gifts you should have started making, like, last year!
For that reason, I wanted to pop on here today and share a quick, but cute pattern that whips up in no time. In total, it took me about 45 minutes with distractions to get together! Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. Who’s going to pat me on the back if I don’t pat me on the back? Kidding!
At any rate, this head warmer is perfect for winter! I specifically put it together for my sister who is planning a snowboarding trip. It’s full of extra thick stitches to make it not only fashionable, but functional (*cue hair flip*)!
This is going to be my last blog post for 2017 and I have to tell you, I’m more excited for the New Year than ever. I’ve been telling my husband over and over again how 2018 is going to be my year. I’m so determined to turn crochet into a full-time profession. To say the least, I’m definitely rolling into this upcoming year with the “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” mentality.
Now, is where I shamelessly plug my Instagram handle (@i_can_knot_even) and tell you how much I LOVE when ya’ll tag me in posts showing off your handmade items using my patterns! It honestly makes my day to connect with you guys! Don’t forget to pin this post to your “patterns to try” Pinterest boards so you can find it easy later on and feel free to check out the “Support This Blog” tab at the top of this page - which will link you straight to my Etsy Shop where I have a few patterns for purchase!
Lastly, and as always, all my patterns are available for you to use to create items to sell in your own shop! All I ask is that you not resell any of the patterns themselves. On that note, let’s hop right into the project!
