Easy Slouchy Unisex Beanie 18.8K Flares18.8K Flares × I have to admit, I’ve knit this hat countless times, but I don’t have one for myself. Without fail, every time I finish one, a friend or family member will try it on and I exclaim how good it looks on them and gift it. This is my most recent version. I wore it exactly once before it was stolen off my head and immediately given away. What you Need: Here’s the Pattern: Cast On enough stitches to fit the circumference of someone’s head from their hairline to the nape of their neck (for me, that was 120 on size 8 needles, 100 on size 10 needles and 80 on size 13 needles) just make sure you have an even number of stitches. Crown Shaping: Once you reach the appropriate amount of “slouchiness” start decreasing. This written version of the pattern has not been tested, and I’ve made this hat so many times that I don’t really count stitches and rows anymore, I just go until it looks right.

tillie tulip - a handmade mishmosh DIY Idea: Rainbow Melted Crayon Art & Man Made DIY | Crafts for Men... Artist and designer Jessica Kerbawy creates these amazing rainbow wall art pieces by gluing a spectrum of crayons on foam core, and then strategically melting them with a heat gun. The paper wrappers are left atop, with the remains of the colored wax dripping down. Though it may look like something you've seen before, I find these to be pretty clever and unique, and an update on the playing with melted wax and rainbow techniques. Jessica's prices are actually incredibly reasonable, between $25 and $75 depending on the size. But, it's also something you could try yourself, especially now that it's back-to-school season, and large boxes of crayons will be on sale.
