My posts this time of year always seem to slow down because I can’t share what I’m making yet to avoid spoiling a surprise. Usually that’s because I’m making presents, but this year I also have what I made for my family’s Christmas card. Since I have sent it out, I can now post it!
The pattern for the hat can be found here, and the pattern for the bobble beard can be found here.

This is my Niece, Kaeli, and the first of the Christmas presents that I will post for this year. I had this yarn that I had started a knitting project with but never finished. I had wanted to learn how to knit and picked up a book and taught myself the basics. But I just don’t enjoy it as much as crocheting so I’ve all but given it up.
So instead I decided to use the rest of the yarn for this set. The yarn is bulky and fun. The colors make me think of bubble gum and just seemed perfect for a little girl. It is hard to work with though as you can’t really see your own stitches in the last row or round, and I had to crochet it mostly by feel of where the loops were. The Scarf was a little easier than the hat as I just used a single crochet and chain one stitch. That way I could single crochet each row in the spaces from the previous row, making it much easier to feel where to insert the hook.
I had to modify the pattern for the hat slightly so it wouldn’t be too big for a little girl’s head, and I was so worried that it wouldn’t fit. But it seemed to work nicely.
Stitched in Love,
