Off the Hook: Hats, and More Crochet Hats

It’s that time of the year again! The cold is here and everyone wants to keep their heads warm! That means… crochet hats for everybody! =D

Bear Crochet Hat with earflaps

To make the brown bear crochet hat I used the pattern for the polar bear hat and changed the colors! Instead of white I used brown and instead of the grey I used beige! I think it turned out really cute! ^^

Here is the Polar Bear version of the hat. I made this one in baby size, that’s why it doesn’t have braids on the earflaps.

If besides keeping your head warm your intentions are to make people around you smile, Gir is definitely the guy for the job!

What are you working on?

Crochet Pattern: Warm Crochet I - Stitch, Polar Bear and Aviator

New bundelicious crochet pattern on the shop! =D

Stitch crochet hat

Is there a cuter way of keeping warm? I don't think so... =)

Besides being cute these hats are easy and fast to make! All you need to know how to make them is in the pattern including how to customize their sizes!

If blue is not your colour the Polar Bear hat is super cute and warm as well! With the added bonus of warming your ears!

Between you and me, you can add the earflaps to the Stitch hat as well!  ; )

Aviator crochet hat

The Aviator hat is perfect for the adventurer in all of us!

The hat has loops on its sides to hold the goggles...

... and a buckle in the back to adjust the goggles to any size!

Because the goggles are not attached to the hat you can take silly pictures like this! Just as long as you don't go wandering off with them down! ^^

If you're making the hats for a little one, for safety reasons, is better to attach the goggles completely to the hat and better not to make the ear straps and braids.

The PDF crochet pattern for the Warm Crochet bundle has 72 pages with detailed step by step instructions with pictures to demonstrate assembly or any special techniques. It includes instructions on how to customize the hats for all sizes, how to find the right place to attach the earflaps to the hat and how to create and assemble the goggles.

Crochet cat keychain

I decided to bring together all the ami keychain I made so far in an awesome bundle and add two more little friends to the group! So far you know Mini Peny, Mini Pony and Stitch! Of course I had to add a Kitty but for the last one I'm divided between a racoon and a hegehog! What do you think? 

Mini crochet girl

I decided it was time to update my own amigurumi version so I'm making the same body I made for mini Leslie! I also wanted to make a different outfit for myself and want to make it possible to dress and undress so I can change it when I want! =D

Off the Hook

Winter is coming and we, at BuddyRumi's HQ, have been trying out different accessories to warm up!

Inspired by the Neon Love Mitts by Pom Pom Quarterly, I made a crochet hat using the same colours and stitch!

I really like how it came out! It's not too thick, it's fun and the size came out just right! =D

Next I made the Ups and Downs Crochet Slouchy Beanie by Tamara Kelly on Moogly.

I really liked the texture in this hat and the buttons gave a cute touch to it.

This was my first try at a slouchy beanie, I think it came out alright, but next time I would make it a little bit more slouchy. =)

And now that we have the head and hands all warmed up is time for the neck!

I found the Cross-Over Long DC Cowl at Crochet N' Crafts! I love its texture, the little twist it makes and the fact that it is small and close to the neck! The patterns for the matching hat and fingerless gloves are available as well!!! =D

I really love this cowl!!! It's beautiful, and easy and quick to make! Mine came out a little bit smaller than the original one because I work with a tight tension, but I love that it came out smaller! I really like that I don't have to wrap it or adjust it, it just stays there and does its job: Warms my neck and looks pretty!!! ^^

I'm making one more scarf, it's really pretty, but I ran out of yarn... =(  I hope I will have more really soon because I'm really enjoying making it. I'm using the broomstick lace stitch, a stitch I haven't used before and it's easier than I though it would be. I'm using a really pretty yarn that my mother gave me, I can't wait to show you! =)

Have a great week and keep warm!!! ^^

What I've Been Up To!

The past weeks I've been MIA from the blog. I got a lot of requests and was working hard to meet the deadlines.

So for those of you who didn't catch the updates on social media, here is what I've been up to!

I started to sell the Kitty Kat Houses at Leeloo's veterinary, they are awesome and super sweet people and were happy to have the Kitty Kat Houses there! The first one I left there sold in a couple of days and so I had to make one more for Leeloo's veterinarian and another to keep as display there.

Three Kitty Kat Houses

Leeloo's veterinarian told me that her cat doesn't want to leave the house! She doesn't want to know about anything else and stays curled up in there all day! That's what I call a success!!! =D

Leeloo's veterinarian also ordered Rumi and Ami for her 2 year old daughter. I used baby yarn to make them, but the baby yarn I have access to is fine weight and I did Ami's and Rumi's patterns with medium weight yarn, I wanted them to have te same size as the original ones so I had to tweak the patterns a little bit and this took a little more extra time to accomplish.

It was worth it! She was really pleased with them!!! =)

As I was finishing Ami and Rumi I received another order, this time for three hats and one keyring. Two of the hats I had already made, the fox and the cat, but the other two were new. It was a Stitch hat and keyring! I really enjoyed making them! I had a lot of fun figuring out how to make Stitch's eyes and ears. These irregular shapes are more challenging but fun to figure out! In the end I really loved the result and if this hadn't been a request I would have kept them for myself!!! =D

Now, after resting my hands for a couple of days, I'm already working on new projects that I will share here very soon!!!

In the meantime have fun everyone!!! =D

In My Project Bag

Lets start with the projects I finished last week!

Kitty Cat Crochet Hat

The kitty cat hat was requested by a friend and was inspired on the face of the Kitty Kat House.

I think he is really cute and with some minor changes he would make a cute bunny hat as well! =D

Amigurumi Gir and Gir with hood down

These two guys are already on the way to their new home! Can't wait to hear from their new owners! ^^

Blue Monster

The blue monster  is coming along great! I made his little horns and now I'm working on his tail.

He is the cutest! ^^

Kitty Army

The keychain kitties keep multiplying and now I have an army of kitties to finish! =D

What treasures hang from you hook?

In my Project Bag

Hello hello awesome crafty people! =D

Today I can finally show you the rest of the projects I have finished. They have been delivered! =)

First, is a second take on the aviator hat.

Baby Aviator Hat Felt.jpg

It was requested by a couple that is expecting a baby boy! ^^

For this aviator hat I made the goggles in felt, and instead of making the straps that go to the back like the first one, I made straps attached to the ears of the hat that can be tied under the chin. I think this one also came out really cute! What's your favorite version?

I also completed the helmet hat. It was a birthday gift! =D

Helmet Crochet Hat.jpg

I think it came out pretty cool! What do you think? =D

I'm also starting another Kitty Kat House, this one will be a little bit more colourful. And I'm also working on a Gir and a Gir with the Hood Down that was requested.

What do you have hanging from your hooks?

In my Project Bag

Hello crafty friends! =D

Today I'm showing you what I managed to finish these last weeks!

I finished the bunny I was making for a friend, she already received so I can finally show it to you!

My friend was very happy with it, she's expecting her first baby boy and she asked me to make this bunny for him! ^^

I hope he likes it too!!! ^^

Bunny and Little Bunny.jpg

I also made some new little keychain buddies! ^^ 

They were inspired by the little white bunny that the bunny I made for my friend is holding.

Coelhinhos e ratinho.jpg

First I made it with yarn of the same weight, but decided to try them out with a light weight yarn too and they came out really cute! ^^ 

And with some minor changes I also made a little mouse!

These little buddies will be available as a free pattern very soon! =D

And last but not least, I made a Big Eyes crochet hat for my nephew! He celebrated his first birthday the past week, and I, as a very proud auntie, had to make him a gift! ^^

Baby Blue Big Eyes Crochet Hat.jpg

I've also finished the helmet crochet hat and a second take on the aviator hat but I know they have not been seen by the people they are going to, so I have to show you those ones next time! ;)

What beauties are you working on? Show me! =D 

In my Project Bag

Hi crafty friends!!!

Another week has passed and is time once again to show you what I've been up to! =)

Little Bunny 2.jpg

The bunny is beginning to take shape. I'm not entirely happy with the shape of the body, I think I'll end up making it a little bit more rounded.

Helmet Crochet Hat.jpg

I'm working on a crochet helmet. I'm really happy with how it's coming along, but unfortunately I've ran out of yarn so this project has to wait a few more days to be completed.

Kitty Kat House Base.jpg

And, of course, I've started working on yet another Kitty Kat House! =)

What are you working on? Share the links to your projects on the comments below! =D

Hello 2014!!! =D

Hello crafty friends!!!

I hope you have a super 2014 full of health, joy and crochet!!! Hehe =D

2013 was a great year, BuddyRumi grew and took on new challenges. For the first time I started to make finished buddies and not only patterns (that really made a diference this December)! For now the finished buddies are only available through local stores but I'm thinking of making some available through Etsy too.

With all these new challenges some of the pattern releases have been delayed but have not been forgotten. I hope you'll be patient with me and wait a little while longer as I finish the patterns for the Tree Trunk Shaped Cat House and the Periodic Table Blanket.

In 2013 I made some of my favorite buddies so far!
