Ravelry Roundup: Big, Bulky Hats!

Lots of knitters use Ewe Ewe yarns and they share their patterns on Ravelry. There's so many great ideas and I love to see how people use my yarn and turn it into amazing projects! Here are just a few.

Craftmumship received her Baa Baa Bulky yarn when we partnered with KNITCRATE. She decided to make the popular Fidra hat with a skein of Black Licorice.

User avn7482 made the Pineapple Expressions hat using Baa Baa Bulky merino in colors Black Licorice and Berry. It looks so cute on her!

Doubled up Baa Baa Bulky for even faster knitting, my 2-Hour Pussy Cat Hat is a breeze to knit!

And lastly, Craftmumship's Garter Ear Flap Hat in Brushed Silver Baa Baa Bulky. It looks like a little piece of perfection. Get the free hat pattern (it can be made in any size for anyone in the family!) from Purl Soho.

Free Patterns for Charity Knitting

Knitters are some of the nicest people I have ever met and that means I am constantly getting questions about patterns for charity knitting. Donations for baby hats, children's charities and other ways to help people in need. Here are our best four patterns for charitable donations. They all are shown in our Wooly Worsted yarn which is soft and washable making it ideal for these kinds of projects. But if you'd like to substitute yarn these are designed for worsted-weight yarn which is the most popular size yarn.

Let's all go to camp! Crafty summer projects for you and your friends

When I think of summer camp I remember sitting in a big, old cabin in my still slightly wet bathing suit playing with beads and making friendship bracelets. My friends and I would wear those bracelets until they fell off because that meant we were true friends. Luckily, we are still friends but we've all upped our game a bit. Check out these fun, quick free summer knitting patterns to get you in the crafting mood! 

Do you have an endless supply of little Wooly Worsted yarn scraps? Make the adorable Knitship Bracelets. They're knit in the round and fast to make. Add beads to the yarn ends and poof! An adorable set of modern friendship bracelets is born!

How about some funky hoops to elevate your summer shorts. The Quick Crochet Earrings are very easy to make and even better to wear. There's a full crochet tutorial to show you how they're made!

Then with a little more time you can knit a Hot Mess Headband to keep those summer locks under control and look cute for tomorrow's crafting! Happy summer camp!

Charity Hat-Along: Let's make hats!

I introduced our Charity Hat-Along last week and I'm happy to say we are collecting hats! Robyn and I have a goal of collecting 2,000 hats for Completely Kids, an Omaha non-profit that serves kids between preschool and middle school who live at or below the poverty line. This means these children and their families can't afford to buy them warm clothes for the winter. That's where we come in, let's knit up a storm and warm up these kids!

Charity Hat-Along

What do I do? Where do I start?

Well, thanks for asking! We're happy to have you on board. Robyn and I have designed two free patterns for the Hat-Along, one knitting and one crochet. Both are fun to work and great for knitters and crocheters of all skill levels.

Good things to keep in mind

We're making hats for kids so while it's fun to make baby hats and the patterns are sized for them, please stick to making most of your donations in the larger sizes. Also, while I would love for you to use Wooly Worsted yarn I understand that we're all knitters and we have a stashes larger than we care to admit. Please, feel free to use any yarn as long as it's easy-care. You also don't need to use our patterns. Make hats you like to make and enjoy the idea of giving.
