I used Red Heart’s Soft and Boutique Fur my models – I absolutely love the feel of the Soft line of yarns Red Heart offers and the Boutique Fur is amazingly yummy. The yarns work up easily with beautiful results!  I would recommend both of the Red Heart yarns I used in these projects to all of my crochet friends and family!

This week’s free pattern for week #10 of the 12 Weeks Of Christmas Blog Hop CAL is brought to you by The Hooked Haberdasher – that’s me! The Santa Bag and Elf Bag are so fun to make, beginner friendly and are not only great as gift bags, but also as a holiday purse, home decor, office decor, candy bag, oh and how about a yarn bowl/project bag – well, you understand… it can be used for all sorts of holiday fun!

  • Super Bulky Red Heart Boutique Fur
  • Hook size – US H8/5.0mm; US J10/6.0mm
  • Stitch Marker
  • Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
ch=chain; CC=coordinating color; dc=double crochet; Esc=extended single crochet; lp=loop; MC=main color; R=round; sc=single crochet; sk=skip; sl st(s)=slip stitch(es); st(s)=stitch(es); yo=yarn over

Size: 
6-7” base diameter; 7-8” height

Gauge:
H hook- sc 17-18 sts x 18-19 rounds=4”

How to read this pattern:

  • When a number precedes the st, that number of sts need to be worked into the st. Example: sc 4, 2sc = single crochet next four sts, two single crochet into same st.
  • Asterisks indicate to repeat stitches within the ** as instructed.
  • Instructions within brackets [ ] are worked into the same st.
  • Parentheses ( ) at the end of a round = total sts for that round.

NOTES:

  • This pattern is written in US terms.
  • The bag is worked in the round (spiral fashion) without joining.
  • Place your stitch marker in the first stitch of each round and move up with each consecutive round.
  • Base increase rounds (R1-12) will always end with an increase in the last st.
  • At the end of R12, your circle should measure approximately 5 to 5-1/2” in diameter.
  • Mark the first stitch of round 13 with a different color of scrap yarn.

Ch 81. Sc 2nd ch from hook and in each chain to end. Finish off, weave ends. Weave one end of your tie through holes made in rounds 36/37 all the way around. Even tie ends, cinch to desired tightness and tie in a bow. *optional: add pom-poms or bells to adorn your ties.

ELF BAG TIE: *Use your H hook

Follow Maria’s tutorial on Crochet Cord with Two Colors. I used red and white for my two colors. I started and ended with 8″ tails, and made 80 chains for each cord. Weave your first cord through the holes made with R36/37. Now take your second cord and begin where your first cord tail is on the right and weave through three holes. Take the other end of your second cord and weave through where your first cord tail is on the left, and weave through three holes, coming out to the other side with your second tail. You will have a space of 5 single crochet stitches between your ends of both cords. I added jingle bells to my tie ends and then used a square knot to knot the ends together. Now you have a double drawstring, which also doubles as a purse handle – YAY!

I used Red Heart’s Sparkle Soft and Soft yarns for my model – I absolutely love the feel of the Soft line of yarns Red Heart offers. The yarns work up easily with beautiful results! As an option, I also used Red Heart’s Boutique Fur to trim one of the hats I’ve made – the Boutique Fur is oh so, so soft and works up easily using a large hook and has such fun results! I would recommend all of the Red Heart yarns I used in this project to all of my crochet friends and family!

This week’s free pattern for week #7 of the 12 Weeks Of Christmas Blog Hop CAL is brought to you by The Hooked Haberdasher – that’s me! The City Girl Cossack Hat is really fun to make with lovely results and it matches the City Girl Boot Cuffs!

City Girl Cossack Hat Crochet Pattern

Designed by The Hooked Haberdasher

To ensure success with this pattern, please read through entire pattern prior to beginning your project.

Skill Level: Advanced beginner

Materials:

Abbreviations: ch=chain; CC=coordinating color; hdc=half double crochet; FLO=front loop only; MC=main color; R=round; sc=single crochet; sk=skip; sl st(s)=slip stitch(es); st(s)=stitch(es); tr=treble crochet

Size: 
Adult – One Size fits Most (21-23” head circumference); hat body depth 9″

Gauge:
H hook- hdc, 12 sts x 8 rounds=4” using Red Heart Soft, which is an Aran yarn (go up a hook size to achieve gauge if necessary). I used a worsted weight for the second and third hats I made, and I did go to an I hook to meet gauge. *Tip: work your hat body with the right side facing you, even as the hat takes shape (it appears inside out as you increase the depth of the hat); this will keep your gauge accurate.

How to read this pattern:

  • When a number precedes the st, that number of sts need to be worked into the st. Example: 2hdc, hdc 4 = two hdc into same st, hdc in next four sts.
  • Asterisks indicate to repeat stitches within the ** as instructed.
  • Instructions within brackets [ ] are worked into the same st. Example: [tr, sc] = one treble crochet and one single crochet worked into the same stitch.
  • Parentheses ( ) at the end of a round = total st for that round.

Special Stitch: Faux Bobble: work *[1 tr and 1 sc into the same st], sk 1 st*, repeat * (I am working on a photo tutorial and video tutorial of this stitch, which should be released in the next couple of days).

Notes:

  • This pattern is written in US terms.
  • The hat is worked in the round (spiral fashion) without joining.
  • Place your stitch marker in the first stitch of each round and move up with each consecutive round for the entire project.
  • Increase rounds (R1-7) will always end with an increase in the last st.
  • At the end of R7, your circle should measure approximately 6 to 6-1/2” in diameter.
  • Mark the first stitch of round 9 with a different color of scrap yarn.
  • For a half double crochet jogless stripe color change on R18, view this how to videotutorial “Jogless Stripes in Half Double Crochet When Working in Spirals” by Crochet Ever After.
  • When working your fold up hat brim you are continuing to work in a spiral; no join.
  • When making your faux bobbles [tr, sc] from R22 on, place your sts into the sk space from the previous round; this results in a staggered bobble effect. The st to work into is easily recognized by the length of the two top loops; you will work into the “longest” looking loops.
  • Your faux bobbles will appear on the “inside (wrong)” side of your hat” while working rounds 21+. When the brim is folded up, they will be on the “outside (right)” side of the hat.
  • Work over your tails whenever possible to have less weaving of tails when you’ve finished your hat.

PATTERN:

HAT BODY (*Tip: place stitch marker in the first stitch of the new round. Place a scrap piece of yarn to mark R9; this makes it easier to count to R18 for your color change) 

1cossack 1

R1: With main color (MC) start with a Magic Circle. Hdc 10 into the ring. Pull ring tight. DO NOT JOIN – you are working in a spiral fashion. (10)

R2: Work 2hdc into each stitch around. (20)

R3: Work *hdc 1, 2hdc*, repeat ** around. (30)

R4: Work *hdc 1 in next two sts, 2hdc*, repeat ** around. (40)

R5: Work *hdc 1 in next three sts, 2hdc*, repeat ** around. (50)

R6: Work *hdc 1 in next four sts, 2hdc*, repeat ** around. (60)

R7: Work *hdc 1 in the next 9 sts, 2hdc*, repeat ** around. (66)

R8-17: Work 1 hdc in each st around. (66) (*Don’t forget to mark beginning R9 with a scrap piece of yarn) 1cossack 2

R18: Change to coordinating color (CC) using the Jogless Stripe Color Change technique (videotutorial link in NOTE section), and repeat R8. (66)

R19: Repeat R8. (66)

R20:  Work 1 hdc into each st to last two sts; sc, sl st. (66) *(your hat depth should measure 9″)

FOLD UP BRIM (*Tip: Be mindful of your tension, as working with skipped sts sometimes results in a tighter weave – you may want to go up a hook size if you find that your tension is too tight, as you don’t want your brim to crush your hat body. Also remember to continue using your stitch marker and move it up with the first stitch of every round.)

R21: *Working in FLO, work [1 tr and 1 sc] into the next st, sk the next st*, rep * around to last st; sk last st. (33 faux bobbles) 1cossack 3

R22+: (Working in both loops now, work your first “faux bobble” into the sk 1 space of the previous round – the set of long looking loops) Work *[tr, sc], sk 1*, rep * around. (33 faux bobbles)

1cossack 4

Continue working in a spiral fashion with no join, repeating R22 to desired brim height, ending your brim with a sl st.  (* I continued working R22 until my brim reached my yarn marker of R9.)

FINISHING
Weave in all ends using your tapestry/yarn needle. Fold your brim up at the natural fold line of the hat (R21) – adjust to your liking. Leave your Cossack hat minimalist or adorn with a pom-pom, button, lightweight brooch, rolled ribbon rose, feathers or add the Red Heart Boutique Fur – really whatever suits your fancy… Enjoy!

1CGCHoptionalfur

*Optional: For a fun furry edge, use your large hook and Red Heart Boutique Fur. Attach yarn with a sl st to your last round’s last stitch, and loosely sl st every other st around (33 sl sts). Finish off and weave ends.

Free Pattern City Girl Boot Cuffs TheHookedHaberdasher

City Girl Boot Cuffs Crochet Pattern

Designed by The Hooked Haberdasher

To ensure success with this pattern, please read through entire pattern prior to beginning your project.

Skill Level:  Beginner. For this pattern you will need to know how to complete the following stitches: chain, slip stitch, single crochet and treble crochet.

Materials:

Abbreviations:
ch=chain; CC=coordinating color; hdc=half double crochet; FLO=front loop only; MC=main color; R=round; sc=single crochet; sk=skip; sl st(s)=slip stitch(es); st(s)=stitch(es); tr=treble crochet

Size: 
Guided pattern with a 2-3” positive ease
1THHCGBCsizingchart
Gauge:

  • Band: I hook – 18 sl sts x 20-21 rows = 3.5″ x 3″ with I hook and Red Heart Soft
  • Decorative Cuff: J hook – 11-12sts x 5 rows = 3″ x 2.5″ with J hook and Red Heart Soft Sparkle

How to read this pattern:

  • When a number precedes the st, that number of sts need to be worked into the st. Example: 2sc = two sc into same st.
  • Asterisks indicate to repeat stitches within the ** as instructed.
  • Instructions within brackets [ ] are worked into the same st. Example: [tr, sc] = one treble crochet and one single crochet worked into the same stitch.
  • Parentheses ( ) at the end of a round = total sts for that round.

Notes:

  • Part 1 of the City Girl Boot Cuffs is worked in short rows to the desired length. The turning ch1 does not count as a st.
  • For the “knit-look” slip stitches, see my detailed photo tutorial here.
  • The mattress stitch seaming method is used to join part 1 into a cuff. See the photo tutorial here.
  • Part 2 (Decorative Cuff Edge) of the City Girl Boot Cuffs has an *option to place 1sc or 2sc into each st on R1. Working 1sc into each st on R1, will result in no flare. Placing 2sc in each st will give the cuff more flare at the top, like the model. R2 on is worked in the round in a spiral fashion with no joining. Move your stitch marker up with the new stitch of each new round.
  • When making your [tr, sc] from R2 on, place your sts into the sk space from the previous round; this results in a staggered bobble effect. The st to work into is easily recognized by the length of the two top loops; you will work into the “longest” looking loops.
  • Unless otherwise instructed and whenever possible, work over your tails as you go along – this will result in less work at the end of your project 🙂

PATTERN: (Make 2)

PART 1 ~ CUFF BAND (Use your I hook)

R1: With main color (MC) ch 19; sl st into 2nd ch from hook and every ch to end; ch1, turn. (18)

R2: sl st FLO each st across; ch1, turn. (18)

R3+: Repeat R2 to desired length, ending with a multiple of 2 (even number of rows) and leaving a long tail for sewing ends together. (18) (* For the medium size, I had 66 rows) 1THHCGBC mattress seamConstruction: Meet your short ends together. Using your yarn/tapestry needle threaded with your long tail, match your stitches and work a mattress stitch seam catching the unworked loop of your beginning chain and the FLO of your last row. This will result in a near invisible seam.

PART 2 ~ DECORATIVE CUFF EDGE: (Switch to your J hook)

R1: Attach your coordinating color (CC) yarn with a sl st in the st just to the right of your seam.*(See option for 1sc in note section) Ch1, sc same st; work 2sc into each prominent loop along your selvage edge of your band; sl st to 1st sc; Do not turn. 1THHCGBC pt2 R1

R2: Work 1 tr and 1 sc into the next st, sk the next st; *[tr, sc] into the next st, sk next st*, rep * around to last st; work 1 tr and 1 sc into the last st; do not join, do not turn.

R3: (Work your first tr/sc into the sk 1 space of the previous round – the set of long looking loops) *[tr, sc], sk 1*, rep * around; do not join, do not turn. Use a stitch marker and move up with each row.1THHCGBC tutorialContinue working in a spiral fashion with no join; repeating R3 to desired decorative edge height and ending with a sl st in the previous round’s sc. Finish off, weave ends.  (* I continued working R3 for a total of five rounds. My City Girl Boot Cuffs measured flat 5.5″ x 6”)

Your finished cuffs should look like this. They are reversible! Fold down the decorative cuff edge; flip them inside out and leave them standing tall; add a button for character… but most of all, enjoy your City Girl Boot Cuffs!

1THHCGBC result

*Optional: For a fun furry edge, use your large hook and Red Heart Boutique Fur. Attach yarn with a sl st, and loosely sl st every other st around. Finish off and weave ends.
