Cuddly Cat Crochet Scoodie. Several things came together to make the Cuddly Cat Crochet Scoodie with Pockets – a reader request, my kids’ love of animals, and the inevitable need for new winter hats!

Cuddly Cat Crochet Scoodie

Out of all these came this fun hat/hood-scarf-pockets cat lover’s combo! Of course, it doesn’t have to be a cat – change the ear style and it can be any animal at all – the colors had me thinking both wolf and Totoro! In an orangey red it would make a great fox too.

Crafty Tutorial: Super-Chunky Crocheted Infinity Scarf [Giveaway!]

I got a bunch of emails, comments, and tweets asking me to do a tutorial for the giant bulky infinity scarves I’ve been crocheting. Usually, when I get a request for something, even if it’s just one of you, I’ll go for it… So, this is my infinity scarf that I made for myself, though I haven’t worn it yet. It’s been far too warm for a big bulky scarf like this. This post was an entire weekend in the making. Before we get started, if you would like some simple background tutorials on basic crocheting, check out this one and this one. First, you’ll need to buy your yarn. To make the exact scarf I’m showing you, you’ll need 4 skeins of this yarn and an N-gauge hook. How do I know what gauge hook to use? Generally, a bigger hook will yield a bigger or looser stitch, and a smaller hook will make a smaller or tighter stitch. Start by making a slip knot at the end of your yarn, leaving a small tail. Do this 41 times. The Baylie Bear Cowl pattern by Heidi May.
