Spirals pattern

Another free pattern for you.  This one is easily adapted to any yarn or size.  I'll give the pattern for a newborn size as I have made and at the end I will include directions to adjust.

You will need:
Light yarn #3   I used Bernat Baby Sport Yarn, Funny Prints
4.25 mm  G/6  hook
stitch marker

sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
ch = chain
BLO = back loop only
FPDC = front post double crochet
BPDC = back post double crochet

You will be working in the round, not joining rounds.  Place marker at the beginning of each round

r1 - 6 sc in magic circle

r2 - in BLO (back loop only)  2 sc in each sc.  (12)

r3 - in BLO *2sc in first sc, sc in next.  Repeat from * around  (18)

r4 - in BLO  *2 sc in first sc, 1sc in each of the next 2 sc.  Repeat from * around.  (24)

r5 - in BLO  *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc.  Repeat from * around.  (30)

r6 - in BLO  * 2sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc.  Repeat from * around.  (36)

r7 - in BLO  *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sc.   Repeat from * around.  (42)

r8 - in BLO  *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 6 sc.  Repeat from * around.  (48)

r9 - in BLO  *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 7 sc.  Repeat from * around.  (54)

r10-18 - in BLO  sc in each sc around.  (54)

r19 - in BLO, dc in each stitch around.  Join to first dc  (54)

r20 -  ch 2, *FPDC , BPDC   Repeat from * around.

fasten off and weave in ends.

Adjustments for this are super simple.  Choose your yarn and a hook of the appropriate size for your yarn.  Measure the circumference (around) of the head the hat will be worn on.  Divide by 3.14.   Write this number down.

Begin pattern above.  After each round measure across your work.  When it reaches approximately the number you have written stop the increase rounds.  If necessary, continue the pattern set in r1-9 to continue increases.  (2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of the next 8 sc,  adding to the underlined number each round)  Once you have reached the end of your increase rounds simply begin working the sides by working one sc in each sc around (r10) until about 1 inch before the desired length.  Then work r19 and r20.

Until next time,

Dog-gone Dog Bone

As promised, here is the pattern I created for K to use to make items for the dogs at the shelter as part of her Girl Scout Silver Award. I really toyed with offering this pattern as my first pattern in an Etsy shop, but decided against it and am providing it here for free.

UPDATE: If you use this pattern, please consider making an additional one or two (or ten) and donating to one of the animal rescue groups associated with Crafters and Artisans for Rescued Animals.  There are tons of animals waiting for their forever home that would love to have something to play with!  Without further ado...

I give U my Heart bookmark

It's asnow day today, again. The kids are loving it! Yesterday they were sledding in our front yard making the best of being forced to stay home from school due to weather. Can't you see how upset they are?

We also brought baby A out to play in the snow for the first time. Here she is with her very handsome daddy.
So today we get a phone call at 5 am saying school was yet again cancelled...more snow fell overnight. I have tried to talk the kids into building a snowman for me. No such luck! Today they ventured to the neighbors house to sled on the "good" hill. My hubby had to venture out in this and travel about 4 hours away for a physical and drug test to start his new job. That left me and baby A in the house and me trying to stay busy so I don't worry too much about the road conditions.

In an effort to stay busy I decided to whip up an idea that has been bouncing around in my head for a few days. I am a reader. I have two bookshelves full of books not to mention …


I sit here with my newest little one, A, on my lap sleeping. I should be cleaning, putting away dishes, loading the washing machine or any of the many home chores that seem to multiply infintesimally in a home with six people. However, how can I stop looking down at her sleeping, peaceful face? You forget how wonderful they are at this age, before they learn to say "no", before you have to follow behind them picking up their discarded clothes, before life becomes hectic. Right now she sleeps, eats and needs a diaper change. The sight of mom makes her smile and everything is new to her. My little gift from God to remind me to slow down and enjoy the little things in life.

We had our first frost of the year last night. I love the pattern it makes on the windows of the van. I almost hated having to warm the van and watch the beautiful patterns dissappear to take H and J to school this morning. (I say almost because while beautiful, I like warmth also!) I can't believe that …
