Easy Girly Skull with Bow Applique Crochet Pattern

Yeah I needed more skulls and cute a girly skull as well.  I love skulls on almost anything. :) This was just a simple upgrade to the Easy Unisex Skull Applique Crochet Pattern which you can see here.  I decided to add the bow to because I wear shoes most of the time that have a similar bow on the skull on them as well. Told you I wear a lot of skulls..  This is a very quick and small project to make to upgrade or personalize almost any project.  It is beginner friendly so give it a try. Happy crafting!

Easy Girly Skull with Bow Applique Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:
(I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
White or desired main color yarn for skull base
Black or desired contrast color yarn for features on skull
Raspberry yarn or desired contrast color 2 yarn
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet  (US)

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

Skull Base: using white yarn or desired main color yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle using your white (or desired main color) yarn, ch 2 before placing 10 dc st in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing 2 sc in 1st st and 2 sc in each of the following 6 st, ch 2 before making 2 dc in next 2 st, ch 1 and place 2 sc in last st. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 st total= 4 dc and 16 sc)
Leave a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew the finished applique in place once fully assembled before cutting yarn and pulling through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed in finishing process.

Eyes (Make 2): using black yarn or desired contrast color
Round 1: Using black yarn (or desired contrast color yarn) ch 1 before working 5 sc st in a magic circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (5 sc)
Leave a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew the eye in place during assembly before cutting yarn and pulling through last loop on hook. Place to side until needed in finishing process.
Repeat above process for second eye.

Nose: using black yarn
Make a large knot and leave short yarn tail before cutting yarn. You will use this yarn tail to secure the nose in desired place on your skull applique.

Bow: using contrast yarn color 2 (mine is raspberry color from Red Heart like in pictures)
Row 1: Chain 7 before placing 1 sc in 4th ch from hook, place 1 sl st in each of the following 2 ch, 1 sc in last ch, ch 3 and sl st in to bottom of last sc worked.
Leave an extra long tail before cutting yarn and pulling through last loop on hook.  You will now pull yarn to back of bow before wrapping several times around center and double knot to secure wrapping in back.  Place to side until ready to attach to your skull applique during assembly.

Assembly and Finishing Steps:
Taking the yarn tail left on one of your eyes and using your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle sew the eye securely in desired location on skull base.  I placed mine just to the inside of the outer rim to use it as a measure to make sure mine were even but you can play around with the placement.  Once you have sewn it in place, pull yarn to the back side of the applique and fasten off.  Repeat process for the second eye.
Now take the yarn tail left on nose and secure it in desired place.  A knot or two or even a few stitches with the yarn needle are more than enough to do this job.   Fasten off.
Last but not least we are adding this cute girl skull’s bow. I like mine off to the side but it looks cute centered on top of skull as well so feel free to switch it up. :)   I just secured mine with two double knots on the back of the project but you can use your yarn needle to sew it in place if you so desire.
All done! Now you have a completed girly skull with bow applique! There should only be on yarn tail left and that’s the extra long yarn tail in main color from the applique’s skull base. You will use this with to fix the applique on to the project of your choice when ready.

Attaching Applique to Project:
Do you have a project ready for an applique? Then you are ready for this step. All you will need to do is again use the Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle and the yarn tail left on the applique to secure it in place on your desired project location. I normally just attached with a basic in and out stitch near perimeter of applique so ends don’t curl up and a few stitches near the center to keep it from bubbling up later on after multiple washings. Once you have sewn your applique in place, pull the yarn to the backside or inside (depending on your project) and fasten off. That’s it. :)

Here is a picture to show how this applique turned out when I put it on my desired project (hat):

Reversible Coasters with Contrast Stitching Crochet Pattern

For my Gran’s birthday (4th of the July as you may guess due to the red, white and blue) I made her up with festive set of coasters to use with the new nautical set I have been working on for her and my grandfather, who shares the same birthday. Oh yeah and it’s their anniversary too. Guaranteed not to forget those dates ever. 😉
Coasters are an awesome little personalized gift you can make at the last minute, for basket stuffers, hostess gifts or just to jazz up your personal space. I used them on my computer desk to keep my drinks off the wood all the time.
For this coasters I made 2 sides (1 red and 1 blue) to each coaster before using white to stitch them in place.  I wanted to make them fun and a bit reminiscent of fireworks so I played around with different stitching patterns for each.  I kind of like how they turned out in the end.   It’s also a great example on the fact that there is no wrong way to stitch this pattern together, you do what you like the best.   Here is the crochet pattern for this set of coasters. Happy crafting!

Reversible Coasters with Contrast Stitching Crochet Pattern (14)

Reversible Coasters with Contrast Stitching Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:
Desired color(s) yarn for your coasters (You will want 2 main colors and a contrast color for stitching)
I used red, white and blue yarn for the set in the pictures
(I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn but any medium to normal weight yarn will do)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet 

Pattern Instructions:

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The instructions are for a set of 4 coasters but you can change the amount to whatever you want. :)

Coaster Side A (Make 4): using main color A yarn (I used red)
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and in each of the following 9 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 1 before placing  *2 sc in 1st st, 1 sc in next*  repeating * process for remaining 18 st around.  Sl st in top of 1st st.  (30 sc)
Fasten off and place to side until assembly.

Coaster Side B (Make 4): using main color B yarn (I used blue)
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2:  Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in 1st st and in each of the following 9 st around. Sl st in the top of the 1st st in round. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 1 before placing  *2 sc in 1st st, 1 sc in next*  repeating * process for remaining 18 st around.  Sl st in top of 1st st.  (30 sc)
Fasten off and place to side until assembly.

Reversible Coasters with Contrast Stitching Crochet Pattern

Finishing off coasters: using assembled sides and contrast stitching yarn (I used white)
Place 1 coaster side A and 1 coaster side B back to back with front sides facing out. You want to line up your stitches. I often just pop a safety pin to hold the pieces together so I can just concentrates on my contrast stitching instead of worrying about missing stitches etc. No worries if you get off one or two though as this pattern is very forgiving.
Now you want to take a long piece of your contrast yarn for stitching (I used white on the coaster set in my pictures for this pattern) and use your  Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew through both pieces at once, securing them together.  There is no right way or wrong way to do this.  Because I was making these 4th of July set to resemble fireworks in a way, it’s a good way for you to see the different ways I stitch mine together. Again there is no right or wrong way to do this.  You just want to make sure you work between Rounds 2 and 3 at the minimum so your ends aren’t all floppy.  This will also make them lay more flat when not in use.  I often also stitch between Rounds 1 and 2 but it isn’t necessary.  I attached pictures of how the different stitching methods I used look when done.  I’m far from good at sewing so if I can do this, any beginner can.  Give it a try!

Here are some additional pictures I took of these coasters before gifting them:

  Plants vs. Zombies Zombie Character Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern (10)

Brraiiiinnsss?  I have to admit the gaming geek side of me loves making the characters from various games emerge from the yarn.  I’m pretty sure I gave out a squee when this one was done.  If you are a fan of this game or zombies in general, or maybe just have someone you know that loves them, this makes a fun little project.  Due to the mouth construction and all the little pieces to be sewn on, I would rate this crochet pattern to be advanced beginner and up.  I tried to make it as easy as possible to understand but I am still new to pattern making so please let me know if you have any questions or find anything confused.  I hope you like this cute zombie too. :)

Row 2: Sctog first 2 st in row and sl st in to the last st.
Leaving a long enough yarn tail to be able to sew on to mouth area when ready for assembly, cut yarn and pull through. Set to side for now. Repeat process for second gum area.

Mouth Assembly:
Taking the tail from one gum area and using your yarn needle, sew one of the pink gum areas in to the top left (when facing you) starting with end in corner and along top with curved area facing down. Once secure, pull yarn through to the back before fastening off.
Taking the tail from second pink gum area and needle, sew this part of the gums to the bottom right area of mouth. You will place one end in corner and sew along the bottom. (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own) Once secure, like before, pull yarn through to the back before fastening off.
Next we are going to do the teeth. I will give them to you in a clockwise circle starting with the top left corner.
For the first tooth, take the tail from your Extra Large Tooth, sew in to the top of the mouth on top and in the center of the upper pink gum area. Once secure pull yarn to back of mouth before fastening off.
For the second tooth, you will use one the Small Sized Teeth, attaching it to the center of the upper mouth area. Once secure pull yarn to back and fasten off.
For the third tooth, you will use one of the Medium Sized Teeth, sewing it in place in the upper right corner, about 2 stitches out from corner. Again sewing securely on before pulling to back and fastening off.
For the fourth tooth, you will use the tail left on second of the Medium Sized Teeth and yarn needle to secure this tooth in the bottom left corner, directly in corner touching left side of mouth. Once attached, pull yarn to back of mouth and fasten off.
For the fifth tooth, you will use the yarn left on the second of the Small Sized Teeth and attach it to the center of the bottom pink gum area on top of it so it looks like your tooth is sticking out of thickest part of gum. Once that is done, pull through and fasten off yarn in back of mouth area.

Finishing off:
I like to start with the bottom when making hats with features so I have plenty of room to work instead of squished up space if I judge wrong when starting at the top. It’s easier that way as you can always move next features up etc.
Now you should have a fully assembled mouth area with one long black mouth tail left. Using your yarn needle and the tail left on your mouth, attach it to your beanie near the center bottom of the front of your beanie. I just centered mine just above the last dc round on my hat. You can reference my pictures to see how I placed mine if you aren’t sure. Once the mouth area is secured in place on your beanie, pull the yarn tail to the inside of the beanie hat before fastening off.
Taking the tail of your larger nostril and yarn needle, sew your larger nostril in place just to the right of the center of the mouth. Pull yarn to back when secure and fasten off.
Now take the tail of the smaller nostril and use your needle to secure it in place just to the left of the center of the mouth area. I lined my nostrils up so they are slightly angled in and the bottoms of each both started at same st line so this one was shorter on top.
Next to assemble the eyes, take one pupil tail and sew in place on eye white in desired location. I wanted mine to look more like character so I didn’t center them or point them in same direction. You can see my pictures of my completed hat or zombie picture from Plants Vs. Zombie’s game art. Now repeat to attach pupil to the second eye.
Now that your eyes are assembled, take the white yarn tail from the larger eye and yarn needle to sew it in place on the right side of face, the same side as your larger nostril. Once you have secured it completely in place, pull your yarn to the inside of the hat before fastening it off.
Now repeat this process with the smaller eye but sew it in place on the left side of the face, the same side as your smaller nostril. One you have sewn it in place, pull yarn to inside of hat and fasten off.
Check over your hat to make sure there aren’t any loose ends or tails you have not woven in and fastened off in your assembly. Do so now if you find any. All done!

Here are some pictures to show how the completed Plants vs. Zombies Zombie Character hat looks like worn from different angles once you are all done:

Chibi Sleeping Bunny with Bow Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Free

I saw a stuffed toy awhile back that had the cutest sleeping bunny face.  I wish I could remember where I saw it. It was so adorable. Unfortunately I screwed up on the eyelashes and it didn’t turn out as clean looking as I wanted. I may switch to embroidery thread if I make another but here is the pattern to my design.  I don’t have a toddler sized head model so I apologize for not having the usual 3D pictures of how it looks worn from different angles.  I actually made this one for my niece to wear on Easter and just got around to typing it up.

Chibi Sleeping Bunny with Bow Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Notes

Pattern Instructions:
*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

The hat in this picture is made with my free Easy Peasy Toddler Sized (Age 1 – 3 Years Old) Double Crochet Beanie Pattern which you can find here as a foundation for the project. Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: in main color white yarn
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice. The hat in these pictures are of the Toddler size of my Easy Peasy double crochet beanie pattern set.
Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start on making your Chibi Sleeping Bunny hat. :)

Eye Lines (Make 2): using black yarn
Make a chain of 10.
Repeat for second eye line. Place to the side until needed for assembly.

This feature works well on toddler to adult male sized beanie hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make a chain of  7 instead of a chain of 10 as step calls for. 

Eyelashes (Make 8): using black yarn
Make a chain of 4.
Leave a short tail long enough to secure the eyelash in place during assembly before cutting yarn and pulling through.  Place eyelash to the side until needed in assembly.
Repeat process for the rest of the eyelashes required.
*Note: You may want to opt to skip the crocheted eyelashes and try out some embroidery thread if yours aren’t coming out right. I’m not happy with how mine came out exactly so I will be trying the embroidery thread on next one requiring eyelashes.*

This feature works well on toddler to adult male sized beanie hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make eyelashes of 2 ch each instead of the of ch 4 step calls for.

Ear Front (Make 2): using pink contrast color yarn
Row 1: Ch 5, 1 dc in 3rd ch from hook and place 1 dc in each of the following 2 ch. Ch 2 and turn. (3 dc)
Row 2-3: Place 1 dc in first st and each st across. Ch 2 and turn. (3 dc)
Row 4: Place 2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next 2 st across. Ch 2 and turn. ( 4 dc)
Row 5: Place 2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next 3 st across. Ch 2 and turn.  (5 dc)
Row 6-7: Place 1 dc in 1st st and each of the next 4 st across. Ch 2 and turn. (5 dc)
Row 8:  Make 1 dc in 2nd st skipping 1st st in round, 1 dc in next st and dctog last two st in row. Ch 1 and turn. ( 3 dc)
Row 9:  Place 1 sc in 2nd st, skipping first st and sl st into next st.  (1 sc and 1 sl st)
Fasten off and put down ear front until ready to attach to ear back.
Repeat process for second ear.

This feature works well on toddler to adult male sized beanie hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, skip rounds 5, 10, 11 and 12.

Ear Back (Make 2): using pink contrast color yarn
Repeat Rows 1-9 from Ear Front step above but do leave a long enough tail of yarn at the beginning of your project to be able to sew your ears once assembled on to the beanie hat and do not fasten off at the end of Row 9 like with the ear fronts.
Row 10:  Place one finished Ear Front in front of the Ear Back you are working on. Working through both pieces at once, ch 1 before placing 3 sc in both of the sc from previous round, continue working a round of 1 sc in each st around the perimeter with 3 sc in each corner when working around until you reach 1st st in round. Sl st in to the top of 1st st. The 3 sc in top of ear curve and bottom corners will give the ear a more rounded appearance.
Fasten off.  You should still have the tail from beginning of ear back that you will use during finishing steps. Place assembled ear to the side until needed.
Repeat process for second ear.

Bow Main Piece: using pink yarn
Row 1: Ch  6 before placing  1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook and place 1 hdc  in each of the following  3 ch. Ch 2 and turn. (4 hdc)
Row 2: Place 1 hdc in 2nd st leaving 1st st unworked and 1 hdc in each  of the next 2 st across. Ch 2 and turn. (3 hdc)
Row 3: Place 1 hdc in 2nd st leaving 1st st unworked and 1 hdc in the next st. Ch 1 and turn. (2 hdc)
Row 4: Place 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc  in next st. Ch 1 and turn. (2 sc)
Row 5:  Place 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc  in next st. Ch 2 and turn. (2 sc)
Row 6: Place 2 hdc in 1st st and 1 hdc  in next st. Ch 2 and turn. (3 hdc)
Row 7: Place 2 hdc in 1st st and 1 hdc in next 2 st. Ch 1 and turn. (4 hdc)
Row 8: Working around the perimeter from where you left off in Row 7, work 1 sc in each st around, placing 3 sc in to corners to give a more rounded look before sl st back in to the top of the 1st st in round.
Fasten off. You don’t need to leave a tail on this feature as you will be using tail from bow center to secure this piece on to the beanie hat during assembly. Put to side for now.

This feature works well on toddler to adult male sized beanie hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, do the following instead:
Row 1: Ch 5 before placing  1 hdc in 3rd ch from hook and place 1 hdc  in each of the following  2 ch. Ch 2 and turn. (3 hdc)
Row 2: Place 1 hdc in 2nd st leaving 1st st unworked and 1 hdc in each of the next 2 st across. Ch 1 and turn. (2 hdc)
Row 3: Place 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc  in next st. Ch 1 and turn. (2 sc)
Row 4:  Place 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc  in next st. Ch 2 and turn. (2 sc)
Row 5: Place 2 hdc in 1st st and 1 hdc  in next st. Ch 1 and turn. (3 hdc)
Row 6: Working around the perimeter from where you left off in Row 7, work 1 sc in each st around, placing 3 sc in to corners t

Bow Circle Center: using pink yarn
Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 before placing 8 hdc in to the circle. Pull circle closed tightly. Sl st in top of 1st st in round. (8 hdc)
Make sure you leave an extra long tail on your bow circle as you will be using it to secure bow circle on center of bow main piece and then securing assembled bow on to the beanie during finishing steps before you cut the yarn and pull through. Put to side until needed in assembly.

This feature works well on toddler to adult male sized beanie hats.  For newborn to 12 month sized hats, make a circle of  8 sc instead of 8 hdc as step calls for above.

Chibi Sleeping Bunny with Bow Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Closeup of features

Finishing off:
Starting from the bottom up, use the tail on one eye chain and Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the eyeline in place.  Once your it is secured, pull yarn to inside of hat before finishing off. You can reference the picture above to see how I placed my own.
Next you want to use the tail from one eyelash and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the eyelash in to the proper place you desire or the closed sleeping eye affect. You can reference my pictures as to where I placed them on my own bunny hat.  Once sewn on, pull yarn to inside of hat and finish off.  Repeat this process for the rest of the bunny’s eyelashes.
Using the tail left behind on one of the bunny ears, use your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to secure the ear to the top area of the beanie in desired location with the contrast on hat. You can see my pictures for where I placed my own. You want to place them side by side like in my pictures if you want them to stay upright with the bow. I even stitched up a few st up the middle of the ears, anchoring them together to help them stay upright.  If you prefer a floppy ear look move slightly forward and apart on hat. They will flop forward on their own.  Once you have it in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie before finishing off extra length.  Repeat this process for the second ear.
Using tail from your bow center and yarn needle, sew your center in the middle of your main bow piece. Once securely in place, use rest of tail to anchor bow at base of your two ears as I did in my picture.
Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.

Here are some of the pictures I took to show how this chibi sleeping bunny character hat looks like once completed:

The hat in this picture is made with my free Easy Peasy Baby / Infant Sized (6- 12 Months) Double Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern which you can find here as a foundation for the project. Want it in another size? No worries. Head over to Easy Peasy All Family Sizes Free Double Crochet Beanie Patterns to select the size of the free pattern you want for your project.

Hat Base: in main color yarn
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice
Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start on making your anime inspired anime hat!
One completed sl st white yarn to where you left off on beanie base. Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in each st around. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st. Fasten off.   Now you are ready to start making the features for this easy crochet bunny hat.

 Note: If you are going to do this in newborn / infant/ up to 1 year old sizes, switch to a G hook for the features instead of the J to scale them down in size or eliminate one increase row from each feature worked in the round.

Nose: using black yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing 10 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (10 dc)

Face Area Circle: Using white yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing 12 dc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (12 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and in each of the following 11 st. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. (24 dc)
Before you cut your yarn make sure you leave a tail long enough sew your face area on to your beanie hat.

Eyes (Make 2): using black yarn
Round 1: In magic circle, ch 2 before placing  8 hdc.  Pull the circle closed to line up in tight circle. Sl st in to top of 1st st. (8 hdc)
Cut your yarn making sure you leave a tail long enough  to sew the eyes on to your bunny hat during assembly.
Repeat for second eye.

Ear Front (Make 2): using white yarn
Round 1: Ch 7 before placing 1 dc in the 3rd ch from the hook and place 1 dc in each of the following 5 ch. Ch 2 and turn.  (5 dc)
Round 2-5: Make 1 dc in 1st st and each of the following 4 st. Ch 2 and turn. (5 dc)
Round 6: Make 1 dc in 1st st and each of the following 4 st. Ch 1 and turn. (5 dc)
Round 7: Sc in 1st st, hdc in next st, dc in next st, hdc in following st, and sc in last st.  Sl st in to the bottom of last st.  Fasten off.

Ear Back (Make 2): using pink or main color yarn
Repeat Rounds 1-7 from Ear Front step above but do not fasten off at end of Round 7.
Round 8: Place one finished Ear Front in front of the Ear Back you are working on before ch 1, then work a round of sc around the perimeter through both pieces.  For a more rounded ear top, place 3 sc in each of the bottom corners of the ears and 2 sc in the top most 3 st from Round 7.
Cut your yarn making sure you leave a tail long enough  to sew the ears on to top of your bunny hat during assembly.

Easy Anime Inspired Bunny Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern Face Close Up

Finishing off:

Tip: I find that by working from bottom up you get a better idea of how much space you have during the process.  Otherwise you may find yourself scrunching up features at the bottom if you haven’t left enough space in your process. By working upwards you always have extra room as you can just move the next feature up a little higher if need be.

You are now going to use this the tail left on your nose from before and your Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to sew the nose into the desired place on the white face area.  (You can reference my pictures to see how I placed my own.) Once you have secured it into place, bring the yarn into the back side of the face area before finishing off.
Next we will attach the face area to your beanie hat. Using the tail left on the face area circle and yarn needle secure the face area in place on to the beanie hat.  Pull yarn in to the inside of beanie once sewn on and fasten off.
Next we will work on the eyes.  Take the yarn tail left from one eye and sew it into place on to the hat using yarn needle.   Once it’s sewn in place, pull yarn in to the inside of the hat before finishing off. Repeat for second eye.
Using the tail left behind on one of the ears, use your needle to secure the ear to the top of the beanie in desired location with the contrast white yarn (or desired color) facing forward on hat.  Once you have it in place, pull your yarn in to the inside of the beanie before finishing off extra length.  Repeat this process for the second ear.
Now check over your crochet project for any tails or ends that you may have missed in process to weave in and finish off. Do so if you find any.  I would love to see your version of my anime inspired bunny hat if you make one, just drop me a link. :)

Here are some of the pictures I took to show how this bunny hat looks from different directions when completed:

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern

I hate crochet patterns that make me sit and read them line by line while I crochet (normally scratching my head). I like simple and quick patterns that I can do while listening to an audiobook or watching a show so I made up these stockings without a pattern just winging it. I ended up liking it so much I not only wrote down the pattern but whipped up two matching ones for my other two nephews as well. I chose single crochet so the little stocking stuffers wouldn’t fall out between larger stitches. I hope you like this as well.

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Red yarn for main color-  (I use a lot of Red Heart saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
White yarn or Contrast color of your choice for trim /accents
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Pattern Instructions:

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
sctog – single crochet two stitches together

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern  free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com Red Stocking Main Part:

Using main color (I use red for stocking in picture) create a foundation chain of 51 ch.
Round 1: Sc in second ch from hook and each following ch until end of foundation chain. Ch 1 and turn. (50 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in first sc. 1 sc in each of the following stitches across until last one. 2 sc in last st. Ch 1 and turn. (52 sc)
Round 3: 2 sc in first sc. 1 sc in each of the following stitches across until last one. 2 sc in last st. Ch 1 and turn. (54 sc)
Round 4: 2 sc in first sc. 1 sc in each of the following stitches across until last one. 2 sc in last st. Ch 1 and turn. (56 sc)
Round 5-9 : Sc in second ch from hook and each st across. Ch 1 and turn. (56 sc)
Round 10: Sctog the first two st. Sc in each st until last two sc. Sctog last two st together. Ch 1 and turn. (54 sc)
Round 11: Sctog the first two st. Sc in each st until last two sc. Sctog last two st together. Ch 1 and turn. (52 sc)
Round 12: Sctog the first two st. Sc in each st until last two sc. Sctog last two st together. Ch 1 and turn. (50 sc)
Round 13: Slip stitch through each of the first 10 st. Ch 1 before sc in each of the next 30 st leaving the last 10 sc unworked. Ch 1 and turn (30 sc)
Round 14 – 34: Sc in each of the 30 st across from previous row. Ch 1 and turn. (30 sc)
Round 35: Sc in each of the 30 st across from previous row. (30 sc)
Round 36: Fold stocking in half. You should see stocking shape now. Ch 1 and turn working 1 sc into each matching stitch all the way around stocking until last 5 st at back of foot heel.
Sctog twice and slip stitch into final matching stitch. (This will give the heel a rounded appearance similar to toe.
Pull yarn through and fasten off.

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern  free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com 2 Cuff (Contrast / Trim) top part:

With Contrast / Trim color, attach to last stitch from row 35 on top of sock part of stocking with sl st. This will be worked in round. Don’t turn stocking right side out until instructions as you want the nice side of the stitches to show when you fold it over top once you are finished.

Round 1 : Chain 1 and sc in each st around top circle. Sl st to top of 1st sc. Ch 1.(30 sc)
Round 2 – 7 : Sc in first st and all around to joining. Sl st to top of 1st sc. Ch 1. (30 sc)
Round 8: Sc in first st and all around to joining. (30 sc)
Pull yarn through with extra tail to finish off and weave through with your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle. Tie off and weave any loose ends left to finish it off. Turn stocking right side out so seams are on inside.
Now fold down the top Contrast / Trim part. Voila. There is your stocking.

Holiday Stocking Crochet Pattern  free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com 3 For a variety in my stockings I used a different trim for each of my nephews. One is white, another dark green and the last stripes of both colors (which I did by switching colors every two rounds). It helped make each their own.

Are you looking to embellish your stocking? You can easily add crocheted holly, one of the designs I used for the Christmas ornaments crochet patterns or like I did with a simple letter to show which child it is for under the tree :)

Candy Cane Christmas Ornament Crochet Pattern Notes

Project requires:

White yarn for main color-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
Red yarn for accents
“H” hook  (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Pattern Instructions:

Abbreviations used in our patterns:

ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet
sctog – single crochet two stitches together

White Candy Cane Base:

Round 1: Using white yarn, Chain 17 and turn. Sc in second chain from hook then sc in next 7 ch, sctog next two ch together and repeat sctog to end of chain. (12 sc)

Round 2:  Turn project so that you are now working in back loops of foundation chain. 2 sc into same stitch just worked to round cane tip. Sc in next st, 2 sc into next 8 st, sc in last 9 st.

Pull yarn through and weave until top of Candy cane hook. Leave a long tail and use extra length to tie on to top of candy cane to secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.

(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. :) I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. )

Red piping on Candy Cane:

For this part I simply started off with a length of red yarn. I cut roughly the distance around the cane times three to make sure I have enough, mostly because I hate tying in ends with the arthritis in my hands so I try to have as little of them as possible. 😉

Secure the red yarn to the bottom of the Candy Cane ornament where you want the red piping to start. I then just sewed the red yarn across in slanted position (see picture above) with my yarn needle, securing it in place by looping twice through each end where I wanted it to stay.

Pull extra yarn through and finish off.

(Note: If you want a thicker banded candy cane piping try making a chain stitch length and weaving it into place with an extra long tail.)

That’s it.  It’s a pretty simple project for beginners and the ornament set make great little holiday gifts to go into baskets or stockings.

Christmas Tree Ornament Crochet Pattern - free crochet pattern  free holiday gift idea

Project requires:

Green yarn for main color of tree-  (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
Red yarn for ornament accents
Yellow or gold yarn for tree topper accent
“H” hook  (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Pattern Instructions:

Abbreviations used in our patterns:

ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet

Main tree part using main color green yarn:

Note: Leave short length at top of tree (starting point) to help secure on tree topper.

Round 1: Chain 2. 2 sc into the 2nd ch from hook. Ch 1 and turn. (2 sc)

Round 2: 2 sc in both sc from previous row. Ch 1 and turn. (4 sc)

Round 3: 2 sc in first sc and 1 sc in each of remaining sc. Ch 1 and turn. (5 sc)

Round 4-8: Repeat process in round 3 increasing each row by 1 sc until you reached your desired length / size. (I finished with 8 rows which ended up with 10 sc across before last round) Ch 1 and turn. (10 sc)

Round 9 (or final row if you add additional rows to make Christmas tree ornament in a larger size): Sc in each sc across. (10 sc)

Pull yarn through and finish off.

If you like a more finished look to the ornament’s border like I did, before fastening off yarn, Ch 1 then sl st in each stitch all the way around the hat to give it a nice outline. Sl st in to first st. Fasten off.

Note: You can adjust the size and length easily. If you want a wider base for a much larger decoration, start of with 4 chains in round 1 and increase each round as instructions. If you just want a longer tree than in pattern, just continue to add rows like row 3, increasing 1 sc per row until desired length.

Tree topper with yellow / gold yarn:

I just wanted a simple ball on top of my tree but you can go fancy and make a mini star or an angel. I was also feeling a little bit lazy so I didn’t feel like weaving in more colors or getting too detailed.

In magic circle, ch 1 and make 4 sc into circle.
Pull yarn through and use extra length to tie on to top of hat and secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.

(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. :) I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. You can also change yarn colors for this step if you want to have a contrasting color.)

*For ornament accents I just tied in some scrap yarn left over from previous Christmas ornaments with double knots to finish off piece.*

That’s it.  It’s a pretty simple project for beginners and the ornament set make great little holiday gifts to go into baskets or stockings.
