Cross My Heart Hat & Gloves Crochet Pattern Set

I am always in search of a classy, cute, unique gift set I can make. My Popular Cross My Heart Scarf & Headband has always been a favorite of many, so I added a lovely hat and fingerless gloves!

I love how beautiful the stitches in the entire Cross My Heart Collection are, and they show off perfectly in the hat and fingerless gloves.

Cross My Heart Crochet Pattern Hat & Gloves

All About that Hat (Cross My Heart-that is)

The hat is designed to have a little slouch to it, this just enhances the look of the plush stitches as the fold in the creases that create the slouch.

The hat is made from the bottom up, with the band being crocheted in an almost knit looking stitch. This streamlined stitch is soft and creates just enough elasticity to shape the hat.

The hat comes in many sizes from toddler up through adult, so go ahead and make one for everyone in the family!

Fingerless Gloves

I have to admit, I love fingerless gloves and think they are one of the most practical accessories to wear. My hands are always cold, but I need to be able to use my fingers freely. So, fingerless gloves are a must!

Just like the hat, the gloves are made with the same plush stitches that create this unique crocheted fabric. The gloves work up quick and come in sizes from toddler up through adult. These gloves can make a great last minute gift idea.

The Sprightly Yarn – my new favorite!

I made the Cross My Heart hat and fingerless gloves in Sprightly Acrylic Worsted Weight yarn. I have had the opportunity to design with this amazing yarn on multiple occasions and I really enjoy working with it.

The yarn comes in many beautiful colors (I used Dusty Rose) which we all love. The yarn is the perfect weight for most projects, is very soft and washes up well. Check out the entire color line of Sprightly yarn by using this (affiliate) link by clicking HERE.

Were you can get the Cross My Heart Patterns

You can get the Cross My Heart Hat & Gloves as a set, which has a discounted price because you are getting both patterns together. But, if you already have one and only need the other, you can also get them separately.

Have you seen the rest of the Cross My Heart Collection? It includes so many fun pieces including a vest, scarf, headband, a triangle shawl and of course the hat and gloves.

Snow Drifter Cowl Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Snow Drifter Cowl Crochet Pattern

Warm, Soft and Inviting is what we need during this time of year and a cowl can do just the trick! The Snow Drifter Cowl is my latest design and I know you are going to fall in love with it.

The rich texture and warmth in the stitches makes this design luxurious at the highest level. The V Puff stitches are the perfect thickness and really show off the natural stripes of the yarn.

Snow Drifter Cowl Crochet Pattern

Isn’t this cowl striking. I could seriously wear this each and every day, it is warm and plush.

Snow Drifter Cowl is all about the Yarn!

I have been so fortunate to work with BluPrint on different crochet projects. So, when they sent me a couple skeins of Sprightly Acrylic Self Striping yarn that they were going to release this season I was beyond excited to create a pattern with it.

I played around with a few different stitches, and having multiple projects in my mind, I had to dream about it for a few days. But, it didn’t take long for me to decide on the perfect design.

The stitches in the Snow Drifter Cowl showed off the Self Striping yarn perfectly. Check out all the amazing color ways The Sprightly Acrylic S comes in (aff) by clicking HERE.

When I received my skeins I was obviously in love with them because they were so soft and plush yarn. As I was looking at the specs I noticed it has some wool in it. The wool makes the yarn very warm, and even though it has wool in it, there is no itchy feel or scratchiness to it at all.

Elf Hat with Curved Tip Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Elf Hat with Curved Tip Crochet Pattern

Christmas is in full swing in my household and I am sure it is in many of yours too. A quick and easy addition to that Christmas spirit is this fun Elf Hat with a whimsical curved tip crocheted right in!

Make it in a solid color or 2, 3 or more fun colorful stripes for a fun and playful look. Then you can choose to add a pom or a jingle bell to make your hat fit your personality. The natural curve is crocheted right into the tip so it actually stands up all by itself.

Elf Hat with Curved Tip Crochet Pattern

The Elf Hat crochet pattern is darling for those newborns but don’t stop there, this pattern includes sizes up through children (about 12 years old). Make them for all your children or grandchildren for a perfect holiday photo opp.

I love when you can crochet a hat that can have so many looks to it. This crochet pattern is just that, the possibilities are endless.

About the Elf Hat with Curved Tips

As I already mentioned, the elf hat comes in so many sizes including:

  • newborn
  • 3-6 month
  • 6-12 month
  • 12-24 month
  • child (up to about 12 years old)

The hat is made using the popular worsted weight yarn. I love working with #4 weight yarns because they work up quick and are nice and warm for crochet hats.

The curve stands up!

You got it! This photo was not photoshopped with someone holding the curve up. The curve is crocheted in the hat by alternating single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet stitches. This adds a cute whimsical look to an already dreamy holiday.

Each Ear Warmer has a different patterned look that is shown in the crochet stitches. Check out the fun angled designs in each of the pieces, all a little different but super cute and fun!

The fun angles in the ear warmers are all created in the stitch work as you crochet the pieces. They all begin and end the same way, however, the main design can be chosen among the three patterns included.

The 3 patterns are a modern design and include: diagonal, arrows and X’s. Who wouldn’t love all these?

Unique Multi-Size Back Allows for Lots of Stretch

Don’t Moose With Me Crochet Blanket Pattern

      2 Comments on Don’t Moose With Me Crochet Blanket Pattern

The Don’t Moose with Me Crochet Blanket Pattern is a fun oversized throw blanket. The silhouette of the moose is defined with an outline that makes it pop, while the silhouette is emphasized with the striped background.

Don't Moose with Me Blanket Crochet Pattern

The blanket is made using a simple stitch repeat. The pattern is not a C2C blanket, it is worked from the bottom up in short rows.

The pattern has a couple different formats that you can follow. It includes a color chart in 2 sizes: one page for a quick print off and go option or a 4 page enlarged format for easier tracking and viewing. There is also a written format that includes how many stitches to crochet in each color.

The Don’t Moose with Me pattern includes full photo tutorials for all the techniques you need to complete the blanket.

The blanket is fun to create and can fit in nearly any decor style by simply changing the color scheme. The extra large tassels are completely optional, they add a playful and whimsical look to the throw blanket.

The blanket is an extra large throw blanket which is extra nice to snuggle up in. The completed size is 40” wide X 52” long.

How to make a Twist Ear Warmer or Headband Tutorial

Have you been eyeing all the cute Twist Ear Warmer or Headbands? They seem to be everywhere and turn a basic Ear Warmer (or Headband) into a very cute accessory. Today, I am going to share how easy they are to make.

Twist Ear Warmer Tutorial

The technique used to make the twist ear warmer / headband is simply in the way you sew the crochet ends pieces together. You can use this technique with most crochet patterns.

I recently did a stitch tutorial for the mini bean stitch and included instructions on how to make this fun ear warmer. You can see the step by step tutorial by clicking this LINK HERE. Then come back here to sew it up with a twist.

Mini Bean Twist Ear Warmer

How to make a Twist in your Ear Warmers

You will need to finish your ear warmer to the correct length. Most adult ear warmers will be about 20″ long, but may be different due to how much stretch the stitches allow for. Follow the recommendation in the pattern you are following.

Instead of folding the ends together and sewing them up in a straight seam, fold each crochet end in half. Once they are both folded in half, nestle them inside each other and fold together.

Using a tapestry needle, you will sew the ends together. Make sure you work the top of the stitches for all 4 layers, working across the entire row ends. When you reach the end, secure with a knot and weave in your ends.

Turn your headband right side out and you are done. The Twist is sewn in and lays perfectly.

Mini Bean Stitch and Ear Warmer Instructions

One of my favorite stitches to crochet is the mini bean stitch. I love how it works up quick, has a rich texture to it and leaves your crocheted fabric plush and soft. Seriously, what could be better than this?

The mini bean stitch is pretty simple to learn. Today I am going to show you exactly how to crochet it step by step. Then, I will give you a way to practice your new stitch by working up a fun Ear Warmer.

Mini Bean Stitch Ear Warmer Pattern

How to Begin your Ear Warmer

I will start off by walking you through the stitch step by step. Then, at the end of the tutorial you can watch my YouTube video to make sure you understand each step correctly.

Use a Crochet Hook I (5.50 mm) and about 100 yards of worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Amore in the color, restful, and love how soft the headband came out. In fact, I was able to make 2 headbands with 1 skein of yarn.

Mini Bean Twist Ear Warmer

Gauge is not essential in this pattern but make sure your stitches are not so tight that the fabric is stiff. If you want to match my gauge it is as follows: using crochet hook I, 9 mini bean stitches and 14 rows resulted in a 4 inch square.

Begin the Ear Warmer Pattern

  • You will want to begin working with an odd number of stitches.
  • Begin with a beginning chain of 20.
  • Single Crochet in the 2nd chain from your hook and each chain to the end of the row and turn.
  • For Row 2, single crochet in each stitch across the row and turn.

How to Crochet the Mini Bean Stitch

  • Always begin your row with a chain 1, insert your hook into the first stitch and pull up a loop.
  • Yarn over and insert your hook back into the same stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop.
  • You will now have 4 loops on our hook, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on your hook.
  • Chain 1, skip next stitch, repeat bean stitch in next stitch
  • Repeat across entire row.
  • For the 2nd row of mini bean stitches, you will chain 1 and turn.
  • Complete a mini bean in top of the mini bean from the last row, skip the chain and work the next mini bean in top of the mini bean of the prior row.
  • Continue working mini bean stitch rows until your ear warmer reaches 19 1/2 inches long

See How to Crochet the Mini Bean Stitch

If you are like me, watching a tutorial is very helpful, so I created this YouTube video just for you. Click HERE to watch it on YouTube and subscribe, or just watch below:

How to Finish Ear Warmers & Sew Twisted Seam

  • Crochet 2 more rows of single crochets and then fasten off leaving a long tail of yarn you will use to sew the ends together.
  • To get the “twist” in the headband, follow this easy tutorial you can see by CLICKING HERE.

This is another fun part in making the mini bean ear warmers. I put together a tutorial on how to sew the ends together to give it that perfect twist. Click HERE to watch a quick tutorial and finish your project.

The Winter Wishes Scarf is one of my favorite cozy scarves I have designed. It crochet design shows off one of my favorite thing… lots and lots of texture!

I made the scarf in a classic grey and it shows off the stitches and design so well. An easy button helps the scarf stay in place as it warms your neck on those brisk days. The optional fringe keeps the classic look of a winter accessory. You can dress up the Winter Wishes Scarf or keep it simple by switching up the button from a wooden to a sparkly gem filled button (see samples of this further in the post).

Winter Wishes Scarf Crochet Pattern

The Winter Wishes Scarf can be worn with a simple tee and jeans or with a black dress. It really is that versatile. Your loved ones will enjoy unwrapping this lovely scarf this holiday season, and there is a good chance it will be tried on right away.

About the Winter Wishes Scarf Pattern

The pattern comes in one size only that will fit most people. It is made in a worsted weight (#4) yarn and is crocheted with a size I (5.50 mm) hook.

In the sample of the Winter Wishes Scarf, I used Cloudborn Superwash Highland Worsted yarn. it is a beautiful, soft yarn that created amazing texture. The yarn is wool so it is nice and warm. Unlike most wool, the Cloudborn is NOT itchy at all. Check out the beautiful colors offered by clicking this (affiliate) LINK HERE.

Tester, Stephanie Robinson, used Plymouth Yarns Hot Cakes (color: denim mix) on her Winter Wishes Scarf. It is a lovely self striping yarn and I love it in the rich blues with earthy neutral tones.

Brandi, owner of Craft Creations, tested the Winter Wishes Scarf and used Caron Big Cakes in the color, Grape Jelly. Such a fun and rich colorway to use on the design, Brandi did an amazing job.

Fish On Blanket – Crochet Pattern

      No Comments on Fish On Blanket – Crochet Pattern

Releasing a new pattern is always a nervous moment because I question whether others will love it as much as I do. As I release the Fish On Blanket today, I am pretty confident this one will be loved by many. I poured so much energy and love into this design that I made for my hubby. 

The Fish On Blanket was designed as a new matching afghan to the entire Wildlife Cables Afghan Book. The striking silhouettes of the animals with an intricate border make designs appeal to many. Anyone who love the great outdoors and wants that “warmth of home” or a “weekend at the cabin” feel will think this blanket is a show stopper.

Fish On Blanket Crochet Pattern

The design of the blanket features a detailed and intricate frame that has twisting cables and an eye catching pattern. Likewise, the corner piece has a touch of whimsical charm. It is designed in a circle pattern that features a little more elegant look of maybe a wildflower. Well, that is kind of what I think of as I sit streamside watching my husband fish.

Fish On Side Panels    Fish On Corner Square

About the Pattern

I used Premier Yarn in Christmas Green and White for the Fish On Blanket. I really liked working in this yarn, it gave the blanket a little more of a plush feel than the other wildlife blankets. The bright, but not too bright, color of the Christmas Green was just what I was hoping for and it paired perfectly with the stark white contrast of the silhouette background. 

Fish On Blanket pattern by Sweet Potato 3

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is included to help create the fish silhouette. At the end of the pattern the graph has been enlarged so you can print it off on 4 pages and tape together for a larger format you can follow.

However, If you are not familiar with crocheting from a graph, a supplement has been added to the pattern. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in detail, but essentially, it states how many stitches in each color to work. This piece of the pattern can also be a good way to double check your work.

Today I am offering you all a checklist that includes each day, the designer and the name of their hat. But, that’s not all. There are also some columns for your own tracking, you can fill out what size you made, what yarn you used and where you donated the hat.

Completing a checklist is NOT required. This is just a tool that you can have to keep track of your progress. Click this LINK HERE to download a copy of the checklist today.

Stay up to date on the rest of the month by following the Challenge on Sweet Potato 3’s social media outlets {linked above/at top of post} or by signing up with the newsletter that will be sent out every few days.

I am beginning to feel like a broken record, but seriously, we have another fantastic designer sponsoring today. Canoe Mountain Designs has been a participant the last few years, I would love for you to take a minute to check out her sites and follow her.

Facebook Page / Facebook Group

Canoe Mountain Designs designed this amazing hat called the Mountain Hope Beanie. Here is a note from Audrey, please take a minute to read.

I am thrilled to be able to contribute to the Cancer Challenge this year! Our lives have been touched by so much cancer over the years and I have been donating hats since I learned to crochet about 12 years ago. The color for Colon Cancer is Dark Blue. I chose Colon Cancer because my husband had surgery for this cancer about 6 years ago. He bounced back quickly and has returned to a normal life thankfully.

While I was thinking about what type of hat to design, I thought I would create a pattern in 3 sizes: Men’s, Women’s & Children’s. I also wanted something that would be fairly quick & easy, but still have some texture. Pom Poms are always a favorite of mine, so there is always the option of adding a faux fur pom pom or making your own yarn pom pom.

Audrey, Designer from Canoe Mountain Designs

Summer Daze Wrap: Crochet Patterns

      No Comments on Summer Daze Wrap: Crochet Patterns

Some Days you just need an extra layer for just a little extra warmth. Well, the Summer Daze Wrap is one of those key pieces you need in your wardrobe. It adds a touch of warmth, but not too much, sounds like that could be the best accessory this year!

Summer Daze Wrap

I designed this Wrap a few years ago, but it just never felt like it was complete or quite fit my style. I had a skein of Lion Brand Mandala sitting around and I was trying to decide what to make with it. My daughter had been begging me for a lightweight poncho style wrap. This is when it dawned on me to re-make my Summer Daze Wrap in her size!

I instantly knew that it was going to be fabulous with the natural color changes of the Mandala yarn. The light weight (#3) yarn allows the wrap to have a nice drape to it. It is crocheted with easy and basic stitches but has a very intricate look to it.

The pattern comes is so many size you can make them for nearly anyone.

  • Children’s Sizes: 2-4 years old / 5-7 years old / 8-10 years old / 11-12 years old
  • Adult Sizes: Small / Medium / Large / X-Large

Grab Your Copy of the Summer Daze Wrap Pattern

You can get your copy of the Summer Daze Wrap (the pattern includes all sizes for children and women). Get your copy on the sites below:
