Catherine Hat Free Crochet Pattern

The Catherine Hat is one of my very first crochet patterns! First came the Catherine Cowl, and I had to make a matching hat! Now, I’ve updated it to have a brim for a better fit and a more toque style hat. You can still make this into a slouchy by adding length if you want. Plus, I have added the old version to my Etsy shop so that you have both options available to you!

For the updated version, I used Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice yarn in Oatmeal. I just love this tweed colorway! It was perfect for this hat! Vanna’s choice is a great worsted weight yarn choice. It is very durable and holds up so well. The stitch definition is really nice as well.

Ferguson Lap Blanket- Free Crochet Pattern

The Ferguson Lap Blanket crochet pattern uses the same great textured stitch combo as the Ferguson Hat and the Ferguson Scarf. I just love this texture and the stitch combo is so easy and repetitive. It’s a wonderful project to work on in the car or while watching television.

I used two skeins of Lion Brand Yarn Pound of Love for my Ferguson Lap Blanket. It took me about a skein and a half to complete the measurements in the pattern. I loved using pound of love because you only have to add yarn once. The whole skein is 1020 yards!

The Camel Stitch Hat is such a great design, not only because of the awesome stitch, but also because it comes with 3 brim options! You can make this hat with a ribbed brim, as shown above, a front post brim, or a bonnet style brim with tassels! The camel stitch is also a really fun, textured stitch to use that works up fairly quick! I have a tutorial on how to do the camel stitch HERE

The sample pictured above uses Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice yarn. This is a yarn that I haven’t used much in the past but I really love the tweed yarn options that they have so when I want a good tweed, it is my go-to. This colorway that I used in the photos is called Grey Marble!

Camel Stitch Crochet Left-Handed Video Tutorial

Camel Stitch

I love the camel stitch! It is such a fun stitch to create! It creates great texture, which I love, and it almost has a knitted look to it! Best of all, it’s super easy! If you know the basic stitches of crochet, you will be able to figure this one out too! 

This video tutorial is made by me, so it’s a left-handed tutorial, but the workup is the exact same thing for a right-handed crocheter. You’ll just be going in the opposite direction as I am in the video.

Sydney Shawl

The Sydney Shawl is a simple and fun asymmetrical shawl pattern that has an easy repeat and is great for self striping yarn or your favorite solid color! You can work this to be any length you desire, and wear it as a scarf, shawl, or wrap!

A few of my testers used the popular Lion Brand Mandala yarn to make their Sydney Shawl. The self striping effect of this yarn looks so great with this design!

Starting chain does not count as first stitch.
Work your last stitch of each row in both loops to give it a cleaner finish.

The Jenny Beanie crochet pattern uses front post cable stitching to create the neat zig zag effect you see below! I used Red Heart Soft yarn for my samples but you can use any worsted weight yarn! The pattern comes with instructions for toddler size through adult!  The pattern also comes with a link to a video tutorial on how to do the cables! With the cable stitching and the worsted weight yarn, this hat is super warm and cozy!

This hat is also the December project for our Christian Crochet-a-longs group! We are working up these beautiful hats to donate or gift to others! You can find more information on that group HERE.
