Featured Pattern Review and A Tip!

Featured Pattern Review of Snappy Slippers by The Hooked Haberdasher

Over the holidays my hooks were full of “gifts” – these were one of my most favorite projects made! I found the cutest pattern on Ravelry from designer Heidi Yates, owner of Snappy Tots and knew I HAD to make the Snappy Slippers! This pattern has a ton of other features and variations to make your slippers in all kinds of unique ways! I have quite a collection of Snappy Tots patterns and have always been delighted with the results, and these Snappy Slippers are no exception. The patterns are always extremely well-written and very easy to follow! Speaking of following, you should take a hop on over to Heidi’s website “Snappy Tots” – chalk full of patterns and fun, fun, fun!!!

This particular pattern called for two strands of yarn worked together… now I’ve made quite a few items with patterns calling for two strands, and I would always buy two skeins — but here’s the TIP – who knew you could simply work from both ends of your skein? I read a post on Facebook where someone said they do this, and decided to try my hand at it. With a tad bit of skepticism, I pulled the center end and grabbed the outside end, working with the two strands… well it works! So all you do, as long as you’re working from a skein, is pull from the center and the outside ends, holding both strands as one in your working hand and there you go – two strands at once from one skein! This method works really well with this particular pattern, as there are color changes often in the pattern to create the colorful results! And talk about cost savings – this method saved me from overbuying on the yarn – YAY!

About thehookedhaberdasher

I was blessed with two dear Grandmothers who were wonderfully gifted and loved all the arts of handcrafting. At their knee, a wee little blonde girl learned the fine art of crochet under their wise and talented tutelage. Now that little girl has grown up and enjoys a lifestyle that affords me the time to put hooks, yummy yarns and fibers back into my hands, returning to the joy and fun of the art of handcrafted crochet. I am awed by the talent and creative patterns of modern new designers, but still enjoy the beauty of vintage patterns as well. My mind and hands are never idle, designing and handcrafting stylishly beautiful, practical, cozy, comfy, sweet and cute wearables and loveables for old and young alike. As a very detail oriented artist, I design and crochet with love, embracing the virtues bequested to me by those two beautiful Grandmothers.
