Puffilicious Bangles

This is only an experiment that turned into cute accessories. I was thinking about what should I do with my left-over yarns and here is my Bangles with the crochet puff stitch that is why I called it Puffilicious Bangles.
It has a detailed instructions inside with pictures.

Level: easy
Yarns ( I used left-over yarns from my previous projects)
Size G crochet hook

C- chain
SC- single crochet
YO- yarn over

STEP 1: C 35 and join in round

 STEP 2: SC on each chain
STEP 3: Work on Puff stitch 
Yarn over, insert the hook in specified stitch, yarn over again and draw a loop through (three loops on hook).
After you finish a one puff stitch work the next puff stitch on a next stitch. Slip one stitch for you to have a space.
STEP 4: SC1x SC2x on each stitches between two puff stitches for one round

And now you finish. Enjoy your fashionable bangles from your left-over yarns.
You can create as many as you can and I am allowing everyone to sell products out of this pattern as long as you mention where the pattern came from.
Enjoy and Happy Crocheting!!!

I and my brother talking about Reggae singer Bob Marley this last few days. And he asked me to teach him to do crochet and he want a reggae hat. I made two reggae hat for my FB store in crochet and knitting. I will post his work here soon. I also wrote a pattern on the knitted hat.

Pooh and Friends

I was thinking about Winnie the Pooh and his friends so I decided to make hat. Here is a crocheted Pooh and his friend Eeyore. I just crochet them and don't know the pattern coz' I didn't take down notes when I was making them.

”If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”
― Winnie the Pooh

"A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference. Or so the say."


a gloomy donkey of the Winnie the Pooh book series but in my hat version Eeyore is now smiling.

Rapunzel Crochet Hat

This hat is inspired by the Disney movie entitled "Tangled". The movie was amazing and yet the characters are cute and awesome. That is why I decided and also I was really inspire to make a hat that would look like the character. This hat will fit on a 4-7 year old girl.

I'm not really good in crochet cause' sometimes it's difficult for me to understand a written pattern that's why I crochet using my imagination.

Here is the finish product. I am really impressed with the result of my experiment.

I am on the process of writing the pattern of this hat. I will post it here soon
