With all the cold and snow we have been getting this winter I have been crocheting some gifts for this Valentine’s Day. I really had not crocheted in several years, but with a quick review of the stitches, it all seemed to come back to me pretty quickly.
The following pics are some of the projects I just finished.
These are some of the fingerless gloves that I made recently.
I got the pattern from the bobwilson123 you tube page, under the title fingerless gloves tutorial.
I did change them a little bit by adding a double crochet border to the bottom of the glove and a scalloped border at the top of the glove.
This is a great pattern because the gloves are reversible.
As you can see in the above pic I have turned one of the gloves “wrong side out”. I love the look either way, and have already worn them both ways. As green is my fav color I couldn’t resist keeping the green pair for myself.
I also made several “Bob Marley” style slouch hats from a pattern I got on Etsy from the vendor Pixiebell. It was a very easy to follow pattern and I have already made about 4 hats. She uses the thick and quick yarn for the pattern, but because I wanted to make a set of gloves with matching hat for some of my gifts I just used the yarn that I made the gloves out of, but used double threads on the hook.
The picture above is from the Pixiebell Etsy page.
Another quick to make crochet project I made for some Valentine gifts were these
cute little mug cozy wraps, or as I call them, Mug Belly Warmers! I got the pattern for these and for the embellishments, the mustache and the flower, from the bobwilson123 website also. Here’s a close up pic…..
of the mustache embellishment,
and this is what it looked like on the mug.
These were really quick to make and soooo easy!!
Well I hope we will not have too many more of these days….
but if we do…..
there’s always a quick crochet project just waiting around the corner to warm our hands and the hearts of those we gift them to!
