So today I thought I would share with you a popular hat pattern in the crochet community; Puff Stitch Beanies.
I wanted to design a quick and easy puff stitch beanie that didn't have all the confusing seaming that needed to be done when you work the hat from the bottom up, so I did the exact opposite and made one from the top down. Yay!
I decided to make a Youtube video for this pattern as well, we all do puff stitches differently and it's great to see a visual!
Let's get into the pattern!
- One size only, fits the average women’s 21” head circumference
- Worked from the top down, ribbing is done last.
6.00mm Crochet Hook
approx. 200 yards Medium 4 yarn (I like to use Lion Brands Wool Ease)
Ch - Chain
SC - Single Crochet
YO - Yarn Over
P - Puff Stitch
SC BLO - Single Crochet in the Back Loop Only
Sl St - Slip Stitch
Sts - Stitches
Sl St to the first chain to create a circle
R1 - 8P into circle, Sl St to beginning (8)
R2 - 2P into each stitch around, Sl St to beginning (8)
R3 - P into first stitch , *2P into next, P into next, repeat from * around, Sl St to beginning (24)
R4 - P into first 2 sts , *2P into next, P into next 2 sts, repeat from * around, Sl St to beginning (32)
R5 - P into first 3 sts , *2P into next, P into next 3 sts, repeat from * around, Sl St to beginning (40)
R6 - P into first 4 sts , *2P into next, P into next 4 sts, repeat from * around, Sl St to beginning (48)
***At this point your circle should measure approx. 7" in diameter***
R7 - P into each stitch around, Sl St to beginning (48)
Repeat Round 7 for a total of -
Fitted Beanie - 13 Rounds (or until the length reaches 7”)
Slouchy Beanie - 17 Rounds (or until the length reaches 9”)
Do Not fasten off, continue to ribbing.
R1 - SC into 2nd Ch from hook and across, Sl St into next 2 Sts (5)
R2 - Turn, SC BLO into single crochet stitches (5)
R3 - Ch1, Turn, SC BLO across, SL St into next 2 Sts (5)
Repeat rows 2 & 3 all the way around beanie. Slip Stitch last row to the first row.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
Recently, I decided I wanted to design ore items that I would consider outside of my “comfort zone.” For me that involves more summer items that work up quickly that I know a lot of my readers would really enjoy.
Today I have a really fun spring styled pattern for you all! While at Hobby Lobby (my absolute favorite place) I came across their I Love This Cotton yarn.
The “Let Your Hair Down” Cropped Tee was a labor of love! This design had many lives before becoming what she is today. I would say I planned this all and am just that smart, but sadly I am not (Lol!).
Today I have a squishy, super cozy, extra-AMAZING pattern for you all; The Nina Cardigan. I designed this sweater to be the perfect homebody sweater. I love cuddling up in something cozy when I’m spending the day lounging at home.
Today I have a unique garment for you all, the Hudson Kimono uses a textured stitch called the “Soft Cluster” once blocked gives a BEAUTIFUL drape and gorgeous look.
As most of you know I LOVE making, wearing, designing, admiring, any oversized sweater. The Kelby sweater is JUST THAT.
Today I have a totally fund and different project for you all, a sweater dress!
A few years back I crochet a sample stitch piece that I never used for any projects, but for some reason it went VIRAL. I received so many messages from people asking me for the pattern to this stitch, where they could find it, and so on. The problem was I never could find the perfect pattern to use this stitch in.
If you’re anything like me, crop tops make up most of my wardrobe. I just love them! They go perfect with my favorite fashion statement; High rise. I have an obsession with wearing high waisted shorts, skirts, pants, you name it. If it’s high-waisted then I want it.
Today I have a quick and easy poncho design to share with you all. This design was inspired by a child’s poncho I saw when shopping for my toddler. I couldn’t believe how simple the construction was and of course my inner crochet self just had to make one!
This week has been REAL crazy. So what does a crazy week call for? A quick and easy project that allows for some instant gratification. The Polo fanny pack is just that!
During the crazy busy holiday season, sometimes we need make a project that works up in under 30 minutes, and uses a simple stitch repeat. Well, I’ve got you all covered!
The Breah beanie was inspired by my love for quick, easy and simple projects. As we’re getting closer to the Holiday season I find myself needing more gifts for friends and family. I obviously don’t have enough time to make them a big blanket or sweater, so I always end up resorting to a beanie. The Breah Beanie is the perfect addition to your quick gift projects!
So, I have a pretty cool pattern for you all today. If I do say so myself, this has to be one of my favorite headbands i’ve made to date!
Shawls and scarves have recently made their way into my heart. These accessories were once something I despised making and wearing, but as I’ve grown as a designer (and moved to a colder climate) I find that I just can’t get enough of them!
Long ago, back when Hooked On Tilly was just patterns on Etsy and had horrible (Yes, that bad) photography, I designed a beanie pattern. I was so happy with the result and couldn’t wait to share it with my small following at the time. I quickly took pictures on my white fur rug (we were all doing that back then, right?) posted the pattern to Etsy and…nothing.
Today I have the Plume Shawl crochet pattern to share with you all. This design is worked easily, using only a few simple crochet stitches. You wouldn’t guess this pattern would be so simple with how gorgeous the end result turns out!
Today I have a really quick and easy crochet pattern for you all. A chunky Scrunchy!
So, If you haven’t noticed by now, scrunchies are back! I must admit I am actually so happy about this for the simple fact that my curly hair loves scrunchies! No knots no problems, am I right?
Today I will be sharing a really easy crochet mitten pattern! I’ve actually never been interested in crocheting mittens before for the simple fact that I live in the desert (Lol!) So, there never has actually been an instance that I would need mittens or gloves!
Today I have a quick and simple shawl pattern for you all! The Scarlett Shawl was designed with drape and minimalism in mind. I am SO happy to be sharing this design today!
A few weeks ago I decided it was time for me to learn a new skill that I found to be intimating, which happened to be knitting cables.
If you're anything like me, binding off is THE WORST part of knitting (with weaving in ends following of course).
I always felt like when I was doing the basic bind off method, it looked messy, was really tight and took forever. After going through pretty much every knitting book I own, I came across the slip stitch bind off method.
When knitting different projects I often find myself needing to icnrease. Whether it be a hat, garment, or shawl. I have found my favorite method to be the "Make One" or abbreviated in patterns as "M1"
I have received a multitude of messages these past few months from fellow crocheters (and knitters) asking a variety of questions pertaining to how I am able to afford being a stay at home mom and make a REAL income from my crocheting. I decided I would put together a list of legitimate ways that I (and SO MANY others) make money from this craft. I do want to put out a disclaimer first and foremost that these methods work for me but they won't all work for everyone, we each live a diverse life and encounter different struggles when it comes to finances. I am hoping that at least one of these methods can be hopeful for some of you.
I thought I would write something a little different for you guy's today, I recently have become OBSESSED with color palette's. These charts are great for inspiring new designs and using colors you often would not think can "go" together. I did my best to use the three most common yarn brands out there.
I am currently in search for a number of dedicated pattern testers. After recent review I have decided I am in need of a group of beginner through advanced knit and crochet pattern testers who are willing to work with me long term.
If you’ve been following my design process, you may notice I lack a very popular knit/crochet accessory that most people adore; shawls.
Where I live it is insanely hot. Like dry, I’m always dehydrated, hot. So Shawls tend to be a piece I often place in the back of my mind. It’s honestly a shame, shawls can be so versatile and allow for so much creativity. You can use basically any yarn with almost every stitch.
