Some Finished Projects

I've been piling finished projects on the coffee table next to where I sit crocheting in the evenings and it's about time that I show them to you. So here goes---

That's all of them piled up and now I'll get serious and show you the finished projects one at a time and give you the links to the patterns because all the patterns are free and online.

The following hats were all made from the same pattern and I used left-over yarn to make most of them. I like the little slouchy effect.

Red and white hat:

Christmas colors:

Teal green:


Two pairs of matching men's slipper socks:


Christmas stocking-- I left the shell edges off the cuff:


Crochet Seafarer's Cap--I love, love, love this pattern. It looks like a traditional hat for men.

I have used this pattern several times before with no problems. For some reason, this time the hat turned out sized for a child rather than an adult man. Maybe since my hands have stiffened up I'm possibly making tighter stitches. The next time I made a hat from this pattern I upsized my hook by 1 size and it seems to have worked out nicely as you can see in the next photo.


This next pattern I liked because it was easy to make and it came in several sizes. Crochet Slouchy Hat:

 After I finished it, it reminded me of one of the dwarf friends of Snow White.

This is all I have for now. Hope you're having a great week.
