Bacon and Eggs Scarf

I was a fan of Full House growing up. I was excited and a little nervous (what if it was bad) to hear that Netflix was doing a Fuller House show! I gave it a shot and boy was I not nervous anymore! I laughed along with all my friends.

One of the things I like about both shows is Kimmy Gibbler. She’s very unique and goes through life to the beat of her own drum (like I believe I also do). Because of this she has a very unique fashion sense. And one of the items she wore on an episode of Fuller House was a bacon and eggs scarf!

I was freaking out because a crocheted item was on a newly popular show!! It became the talk of all the pages I follow. And it must have struck a nerve in the normal world because a friend of mine, L contacted me asking if I could make her her own!! Heck yes I would!

There was a pattern designer that I just had to go check out immediately to see if she had a pattern for this. Her name is Twinkie Chan and she designs THE BEST food patterns! Seriously, just take a look at some of these

I believe Kimmy has also wore a similar pizza scarf and maybe a cupcake one as well? I’ve only watched the first season so I’m not positive. Either way. I need all the food scarves!!

Twinkie Chan to the rescue!!! She has a pattern that is exactly like the one Kimmy wore. Maybe those in charge of costumes bought one from her? So I bought her Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies: 20 Yummy Treats to Wear book for Kindle and got to work!

I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Scarlet and Beige, RHSS in White and Bright Yellow, and a 5.00mm hook to complete the scarf. The pattern was extremely easy to read and follow! I had absolutely no problems. It was the perfect length for L! If I were to make one for myself I think I would add at least one more bacon and egg. I like really long scarves.

I doubled the egg whites so that it would have a plain back and it would make them a little more sturdy. I used scrap yellow yarn to stuff the yolks. I also sewed them all on in different spots to make it more real.

Toddler Tool Belt

The fourth and final item in this order was for a tool belt in coordinating colors with the hard hat. These might have been the cutest toys I’ve ever made! And super easy too since there was no stuffing required!! I used My Sweet Potato 3’s Tool Belt – Hammer, Wrench, Screwdriver Pattern in size 3-6 months. I used RHSS in Gold, Blue, and Gray Heather with 5.5mm and 6.5mm hooks.

When I made this the stitch counts on the belt were off. The button whole was super off and the length wasn’t what it needed to be. Christine was fairly quick with her response. Facebook was acting up so the delay wasn’t her fault. It wasn’t long at all for her to fix everything.

I was a little confused with the wording on the head of the wrench. So I kind of just did what I thought looked good to me. I think it all worked out in the end.

I think my favorite part about this is that the tools and holder are one size and you can continue making bigger belts as the child grows! It would also be adorable in pink or purple for a little girl’s set. Girls need tools too!

Chevron Infinity Scarf

It’s late November 2015. I’m in a major cro-jo funk since my nanny had passed at the beginning of the month and I had just finished a week long visit to see my pop-pop in Arizona. It’s coming dangerously close to Christmas and I had nothing for my mom. I was starting to think I was going to have to buy something (when was the last time I bought someone a gift…?) because I just didn’t have it in me to pick up a hook.

I’m not sure exactly what got me started again but this was the first thing I sat down and started and finished since my funk. I wanted something to match the hat I made her earlier in the year. I stumbled on Dandelion Daze’s Chevron Infinity Scarf pattern and fell in love! I used RHSS in Black and Dark Orchid with a 6.0mm hook. I used her pattern exactly for the width and chevron look but not stripe order.

The coolest thing about her pattern was that she used a random stripe generator and it is amazing!! All I had to do was click my colors, how wide I wanted each stripe to be, and how many total rows I wanted. I just went with it a checked off 1-20 rows wide and I believe 200 rows total. Then I clicked the “Generate My Stripes” button and kept clicking refresh until I found a layout I liked. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

The one thing I did make sure of was that my first and last rows were the same color. I didn’t worry about that on the generator but just worked it in. I also bordered each side in black.

Now she has a truly one of a kind scarf! I need to make one for myself in a couple different colors I think. Definitely some pinks. Maybe a dark blue. Or a gray! The possibilities are endless!!

Baby Mittens

To go with both sets of hats for both cousins I decided to make each a pair of baby mittens. They were winter babies and babies need their hands kept warm too. I used Bella Bambina Knits’s Baby Mittens Pattern. I decided to err on the side of caution and use a 5.0mm hook because the pattern has no gauge and at the time my stitches were usually on the tighter side. I also only did the body of the mitten to round 8 instead of 9. I will also be making the tie longer than 50 chains just to make them a little easier to put on a squirming baby.

To match the Hungry Caterpillar Hat I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Kelly Green and Scarlet. To match the Striped Mustard Hat I used Red Heart With Love in Black and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Mustard. Don’t be fooled by the picture. They are indeed the same size

Minion Mittens

To go along with the Minion Hat I was asked to make simple matching mittens. I chose Brenda K. B. Anderson’s Mrs. Murdock’s Mittens. This may be the pattern I used to make my youngest sister mittens but I honestly don’t remember and that project was not logged into Ravelry it was that long ago! I used RHSS in Bright Yellow and blue with a 4.0mm hook. I gave this a 5 out of 5 stars and easy difficulty rating.

According to my notes my biggest issue was making an inbetween size than the pattern had listed. Based on R’s measurements I needed to make between a preschooler and older kid size. I wasn’t asked to make a different pair so I can only assume they fit! I will definitely be using this pattern again whenever I need a basic mitten pattern
