La Push, Baby!

This hat was a copy of the one wore by Bella in “Twilight”.

Final la push

La Push, Baby! (for some reason when you click on the link to the pattern it comes up on another page and you have to click it again to get to the pattern.  If anyone knows how to fix that please let me know!)

Please, let me know if you find any mistakes or have any questions!  Enjoy!

Bella’s La Push Hat

I looked for a pattern that came close to Bella’s hat in Twilight, but the only  one that I found was knitted.  I had a good look at the one she was wearing and found it to be crochet, so I made my own.

I’m wearing mine pulled down in this photo, which makes it more round, Bella is wearing hers up on the top of her head which gives it that doom look.  Once it is blocked you will have the same look.

Sorry my photo’s aren’t the best, but I have to take them by myself.

The pattern is being tested right now, but once it’s finished I’ll have up as a free pattern on Ravelry and Crochetville.

A few FO’s

The summer is over, the kids are at school and I’ve got me some knit time!!

I have been a bit busy over the summer months.  I started a knit/crochet group that meets here in The Colony, TX at our local Super Target in the Starbucks.  We meet every other Wed and as there is just three of us, but hopefully we will get more people in and can meet each week.

I have also finished a few projects.

One would be a patter that I’m working on for the “La Push Hat” based off the one that Bella wears in Twilight.  I really hated the hat and swear that I would never make it so I just had to.  I saw what was out there and not one of them, that I could find, even looked close to her hat, so I made my own.

This one is made with a bulky weight wool yarn and I think it’s too much so I made another one with reg worsted weight wool.

This one isn’t blocked yet, it’d drying now, once it is I’ll post that picture and pattern.

This one is called the Inga’s  Haekelbeutel.  Easy granny squares that are put together to make this cute purse.

I’m also making some things for the PTA Craft Fair again this year.  I’m making, with scrap yarn, (yeah me!) some Tic Tic Toe boards.

This is another one that I need to get the pattern written up for.

I have a few other things on my needles now, one is a V-neck vest for hubby.  I’m taking a cable pattern that I found posted one Ravelry and using it for his vest.  I haven’t gotten a picture of that and may frog it and try to make it in the round.  Vogue Knitting has a great article by Jared Flood (designer of the Koolhass hat ) about making any flat knit pattern into a seamless pattern.  This is a two part article, part one is out now in the Fall 2009 mag, and part two will be out next month, Winter 2009.

I’m also working on Mr. Greenjeans for my self.  I’m about half done and just need to get going again.  I’m using up some stash yarn that I found at the local re-sale shop. (yeah for me again!)

I’ll be back when I have more!
