DIY KNIT HAIR SCRUNCHIE

DIY KNIT HAIR SCRUNCHIE

Hi everyone, it has been awhile since my last post. Sometimes I forget that I have a website lol. I know I should pay more attention and be more active but it is what it is hey! ๐Ÿคฃ

I havenโ€™t been active about crafts such as sewing, knitting and crocheting in the past couple of months. I banded myself from crafts stores. ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ‘

This week I couldnโ€™t resist anymore when Lincraft had 40% off store wide. ๐Ÿ˜ณ I straight to the yarn shopping and I went crazy lol. I had a lot of good time in Lincraft and a big smile ๐Ÿ˜€ when I walked out the door. I might do yarn haul after… I donโ€™t know will see.

Today is a another good day because I have a simple yet cute hair scrunchie pattern that I’ve seen them everywhere on the internet and I think they’re so simple and so cute! I don’t know why I didn’t already knitted one for myself. I’ve been enjoy knitting them and I hope you do too. So I’m going to share with you incase some of you haven’t knitted one before like me. It’s very easy to knit and beginner friendly in my opinion.

I crocheted hair scrunchies before and I think I prefer a knit more than a crochet version. which version do you prefer? please share ๐Ÿ˜€

Materials :

Let’s get started!

Starting with long tail Cast on, Thump method Co.84 sts. you totally could do less or more sts.

Row;1 K all across. turn.

Row;2 Repeat row 1 until the work piece matured 2” or more depends on what type of yarn you are using. we are going to fold the work piece in half. my piece matured 1.5”. This’ll be how thick of a hair scrunchie.

Cut the yarn and leave a long tail to sew the long edges of work piece together.

Insert a hairband in-between the fold and sew the long edges of the work piece to the end. Sew the ends to close the hole. Adjudge the hairband till you liking and walaaaa! you just knitted yourself very cute and cool hair scrunchies…. let’s make some more and enjoy knitting.

Kimono Cardigan inspired

Kimono Cardigan inspired

I’d had an eye on this cardigan for quite some time. But I didn’t want to make it until I had the perfect yarn to crochet it.

Recently I discovered the Kartopu yarn from Spotlight (local craft chain store) and straight away I thought yep! This is the yarn that I’ve been waiting for… lol

It’s 100% cotton โœ”๏ธ

It’s soft โœ”๏ธ

It’s a variegated colour that I like โœ”๏ธ

It’s a bit pricy for 100gram? Don’t care because I wanted the right yarn for this โœ”๏ธ๐Ÿฅด๐Ÿ˜…

Knitting a jumper(sweater).  Designing as I go. (Top-Down)

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ and good morning Sunday๐Ÿ˜Š

Today my family and I were going to go to the beach. But the weather is rainy, windy and overcast. So we changed our mind and spending the day relaxing at home. So I have time to post something about my jumper.

Sometime last week I went to Spotlight (craft store). I guess it might be similar to Micheal or Joann stores in America. I wouldn’t have a clue because I’ve never been there, only heard about it. Anyway, I went to Spotlight last week..  lol yeah I know! I have an addiction / obsession problem with Spotlight. ๐Ÿ˜€ But only the craft sections especially the yarn aisle; “Life’s to short let’s buy more yarn”, why not? hahaha

First time knitting socks using AddiCrasyTrio

First time knitting socks using AddiCrasyTrio

I followed the YouTube tutorial called Toe up socks by Craft House Magic. I followed almost every step except on the top of my sock I decided to put a cable and make my socks shorter.

My thoughts about the trio needles.. well I think theyโ€™re great because 3 DPN are less complicated than 5 DPN. Why? Because 3 DPN are more flexible so they can bend and move around more easily if they are in your way. You have to try it yourself to know exactly what I mean.

My first knitted Sweater

My first knitted Sweater

I’m a proud mama ๐Ÿ‘Šโœจ๐Ÿ˜

Right now I’m so seriously happy and proud. Why? Because I just made my very first knitted sweater for my son. I’ve never thought that I would attempt to even make one. I always thought it’s too complicated to make, better to buy.

Two days ago I went to the shop and saw a similar to this sweater. I was about to buy it but my hubby said to me ” you can make it yourself ”  then I looked at him and smiled a little and said ” yes I think I will do it myself, I won’t pay $90 for a machine made sweater! ๐Ÿ˜ Let’s go buy yarn ” Lol
