Crochet Gingerbread Girl Hat

This was a really easy pattern to follow along with. I did change it a little. The icing was supposed to be a crochet chain that was stitched on and I slip stitched a pattern onto the hat. I also added blue instead of black eyes. I used a US H hook and the yarn is I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby in Brown.

More Cross Stitching

I worked on these little cross stitch Olaf monograms for Grandma & Nana. I think that they turned out super cute. I still need to figure out how I am going to finish them.

They were fairly easy pattern to whip up and I added some clear elastic thread to the straps hoping that it would help keep it from stretching out. I've never… Continue reading Crochet Slippers
