Wave Ripple Beanie Hood / Hat + Scarf = 10 Free Scoodie Patterns I was casting about (no pun intended) for an idea of what to blog about today, and decided to ask the moogly facebook fans… and hooded scarves were the answer! Also known as scoodies, it was too much of a coincidence to resist – moogly itself got it’s start on a batch of commissioned scoodies made to look like octopi/squid! The rest is history, but scoodie patterns will always hold a special place in my heart. Pixie Scoodie (knit) – With Bulky yarn and a bit of time with the needles, you can be frolicking in the woods and toasty warm! BONUS UPDATE!! There are lots of variations on the hat scarf combo, but I think these 5 knit patterns and 5 crochet scoodie patterns are the best ones available right now – and they’re all free!

Kitty Hat How to Crochet a Flower! Wow, this has been a project. First, my daughter (#4) has this black crocheted hat with a green crocheted flower on it (it was a gift from a wonderful YW leader). I loved it and my daughter wanted me to make more for her in different colors. Second, I was able to crochet the hat without too much difficulty, but I could not figure out the crocheted flower for the life of me. Third, I was off to the library to check out crochet books. Fourth, after crocheting one, it was not the same as my daughters, it was floppier and bigger and had larger holes in it (lacier is a good term). Fifth, from the library book and looking at the flower of my daughters, I came up with a version of my own. Sixth, I filmed myself crocheting a flower. Seventh, I didn't know how to put video on the blog and I was told to put it in youtube then on the blog. Ninth, I cut my video into 3 parts to fit youtube's rules. Tenth, I put the links or url's or whatever on the blog. Now for the next part of this ubber posty post.
