ARROW HEADS Crochet Collection

beanies, crochet patterns, hats, headbands, how to crochet, mittens, scarves, arrows, arrow heads,



ARROW HEADS is a His and Hers Crochet Collection which includes hats, mittens, scarf and headband. Designed for the winter season this collection can be worn in spring and autumn by changing your yarn choice. You can have a bit of fun by playing around with colours too!



It has been one (1) year since I first released the Arrow Heads Hat and Headband patterns. The original plan was to release a few crochet patterns using the Arrow Stitch pattern in a small collection of hats, mittens, headband and scarf.

Somehow even though the crocheting of such items was carried out the actual pattern writing was on the backburner. So here I am today about to remedy the situation with the following two (2) patterns ARROW MITTENS and DOUBLE ARROW HAT. 

As soon as I have completed adding the remainder of the Arrow Heads patterns to the ARROW HEADS COLLECTION I will be releasing the complete EBook in December.  Make sure you keep checking back for the announcement of the release date.

Arrow Heads Crochet Collection

The Arrow Heads Collection so far includes crochet patterns for the Arrow Hat and the Arrow Headband, both patterns utilise the single Arrow pattern. 

Next Instalment - Double Arrow Hat

Once you get the hang of the simple, Arrow pattern you can move on to the Double Arrow Hat.

SUMMER DAZE MANDALA

I had a dream, a dream about crochet and in the middle of the night, I woke up and drew the shape from the dream. The very next morning I sat down and crocheted the shape. I didn't know what to do with this shape and for six (6) years, this shape has been patiently waiting to share its beauty with the world.

Resurrecting Old Crochet Hats

In the mid-1980's I remember my Polish mother-in-law, Henryka, showing me how to crochet in a spiral and how to add contrast surface-crochet. [Originally the surface-crochet was made using a slip stitch, however, over the years I have changed that to (slip stitch, ch1) instead, which I think is way better].

How to Crochet a Simple Beanie

how to crochet a simple beanie, beanies, hats, photo tutorial,


Simply Perfect Beanie

In 2001 I designed this simple beanie for my grown-up children, who were in their 20's at the time, and living in the sub-tropics of Australia, where it doesn't really get very cold in winter, but when the wet weather and strong winds blow, in those cool morning and evening temperatures you definitely need to keep your head and ears warm. That is how this simple beanie crocheted totally in one stitch was born.
