ARROW Heads Crochet Patterns

how to crochet, crochet patterns, hats, headbands, arrows, beanies, men, women,






Here are two more crochet designs for Winter 2017/2018 these designs are part of my ARROW Heads Collection

For the men in your life, I chose a simple beanie design with an insertion of the arrow stitch.  ARROW Winter Hat is the perfect winter warmer beanie, it's made using a chunky yarn for extra warmth and it has an optional cotton lining for comfort.

The pattern sizing is for adult large heads, (like my darlings), and will fit a 23in (58cm) head circumference, it is also long enough to cover his ears and protect them from the cold wind. If you wish to make smaller sizes you can easily adjust the sizing and decrease the length.

ARROW Hat is made with a yarn I have not used before, Stylecraft Life Chunky. I decided to give this yarn a try  firstly because my darling loved the colour, Teal (2416), unfortunately, the colour teal does not show up in the photos. I like the fact it is a lovely blend of 75% acrylic and 25% superwash wool and comes in 100g balls, which simply equates to value for money. You only need 1 x 100g ball of Life Chunky to make this hat and only 1 x 100g ball of Cottonsoft DK for the optional lining.

For the women in your life, I designed a headband based totally on using just the arrow stitch. ARROW Headband is simply perfect for keeping your ears warm while outdoors, I chose a chunky yarn for extra warmth and comfort and the easy arrow stitch pattern gives you a great looking headband.

The pattern sizing is for adult medium heads, (like mine), and will fit a 22in (56cm) head circumference, and the width of 4in (10cm) is easily wide enough to cover my ears and keep them warm and cosy. If you wish to make headbands for smaller heads, it is very easy to adjust the length.

To make the ARROW Headband I dug out a lovely chunky yarn from my stash of yarns. Wendy Mode Chunky is a soft blend of 50% premium acrylic and 50% Merino wool and is ever so comfy to wear, and it also comes in 100g balls. You can make two (2) headbands from 1 x ball of yarn, and still have some left over.

AMETHYST Winter Hat

WINTER IS COMING!


No matter how many hats I have for winter, every autumn I feel the need for a BRAND NEW HAT for the coming winter, and this year it is no different. There is always room for another warm hat to be added to my collection of hats. Don't you agree?

Yarn Talk


For this my first crochet hat for winter I am using King Cole RIOT Chunky, which I bought a couple of weeks ago.  A wool mix yarn 30% Wool and 70% Acrylic with a splash of colourful multi-tonal shades and I chose the purple mix, called Rhinestone (Shade: 1692 Rhinestone), closest to my favourite colour.  The Riot Chunky yarn comes in 100g balls so you only need one (1) ball to make this winter hat. As you can see in the photo the gradual colour change in the yarn has made the hat look as though I changed colour in every round, I just love this yarn! 



You can substitute the yarn if you wish, just remember to check the YARNSUB website, to get the best match.

New Winter Hat


AMETHYST Winter Hat is the name of my new design for winter 2017 the colours remind me of my favourite gemstone of the same name, which I always wear around my neck.  This chunky yarn crochet hat is going to be lovely and warm, the yarn label recommends 6mm hook, however, I have used 5mm hook for a denser fabric and I have also included a cotton lining to prevent any possible itchiness from the wool blend yarn, as well as making the hat warmer. Of course, the cotton lining is optional you can make and wear the hat as is, I just prefer it with a lining.
