We don’t have a large celebration of Valentine’s Day in our house. The Boy isn’t in school yet, so there’s no need to spend weeks planning Pinterest-perfect Valentines for his classmates, but I do think the sentiment is nice, and there’s nothing wrong with reflecting and thinking about ways we can better show our love to our family and friends. So in that way, I am not a total Valentine’s Day Grinch. But even if you are, this Crochet Heart Stitch Hat (Puppy Love Slouchy) is a super cute and comfy slouchy that can be worn all winter long.

ADULT/TEEN SIZE HEART STITCH HAT:
HAT RIBBED BAND:
1. Hdc in 2nd ch from hook. Hdc in each ch. Turn. (7 sts)
2. Ch 2. Hdc in same st. Hdc in next 6 its in BLO. Hdc in last st, going through both loops. Turn. (7 sts).
Don’t tie off after last row.
Repeat row two until your band reaches about 18″ – 19″ for adult. You will get this measurement by gently stretching your band and measuring the length, not the pre-stretch length. You want the hat to be snug and due to differences in yarn stretchiness, I am not providing a row count. Instead, use your measuring tape. Don’t break yarn.
CROCHET HEART STITCH HAT BODY:
1. Fold the band in half, and using the loop from the last hdc, pull it through and sl st down the side, forming a band. Don’t tie off.
Turn the band, so the seam is on the inside and your loop is at the top.
Beginning where you left off sewing the band: Ch 1. Sc in same sp. From here, you will sc around the band until you have 72 total stitches. Join with a sl st with the first st, using 2nd color.
2. Ch 1. Dc 4 in same st. Ch 1. Sk 5 sts. *Dc 4 in next st. Ch 1. Sk 5 sts* work 11 times. Join with a sl st with the first st using Dove Heather. (60 sts)
3. Ch 2. Sc in middle of shell (not in a st, in the space between the stitches). Ch 2. Work a 3-dc cluster in the 3rd st of the 5 skipped sts from the previous round. *Ch 2. Sc in middle sp of shell. Ch 2. Work a 3-dc cluster in 3rd sk st from previous round* repeat all around the hat. Join with a sl st with first chain. (72 sts)
4. Ch 2. Dc in same st. Dc in each st around. Join with sl st. (72 sts)
Join 3rd color. (You can work in BLO this row for ease-of-use).
5. – 13. Repeat rows 2 – 4 respectively, changing colors when you make the hearts row.
14. Ch 2. Dc in same st. *Dc2tog, dc in next st* work 23 times. Work a dc2tog with last 2 sts. (48 sts)
15. Ch 2. Dc in each st around. (48 sts)
16. Ch 2. Dc2tog all around. (24 sts) Tie off.
To close the hat, turn it inside out. Put a length of yarn on your needle and sew in and out each stitch across the top. Pull it tight, cinching the top closed. Tie a very sturdy knot and clip end.
Finish with a pom pom on top (get the tutorial here).

Okay guys, let me drop a game changer on you: outdoor yarn. About two weeks ago Bernat let me in on a little secret and sent me a few balls of their NEW outdoor yarn, Bernat Maker Outdoor. It’s mold resistant and won’t fade in the sun. How cool is this?! I immediately got going on a project that, unfortunately, ended in total failure. However, I got a new, cuter idea to make crochet bike basket bunting and it turned out so adorable!

I’ll admit something weird: I don’t like pepperoni pizza. I guess I am crazy or something, because everyone seems to love it except me (and both my kids, who are apparently as strange as I am). Even as a kid I would peel off the pepperonis whenever we ate pizza, turning it into a delicious cheese pizza. I am a total cheese pizza girl all the way. However, cheese pizza is kinda boring, don’t you think? When I decided to make some crochet pizza coasters, I decided FOR pepperoni.
Good choice, right?
This crochet fringe clutch is a makeover pattern! I designed this crochet pattern in thick acrylic/wool yarn last summer. I actually really like it in the bulky yarn, and it works up so fast, but I really wanted to make it in t-shirt yarn. I had searched but hadn’t found an affordable, readily available t-shirt yarn, so I settled for a bulky acrylic. However, a few weeks ago I discovered Bernat Home! I am currently working a few projects with it, and I made these deliciously comfortable flip-flops sandals last month. The stretchy texture is perfect for slippers. It’s SO comfortable. And of course I decided to remake my crochet fringe clutch with this newfound yarn.
