Next To You by The Police
If I was born only 1-2 pounds, I’d certainly want to be getting next to someone for some heat and comfort.
Pattern: Harris Preemie Hat designed by Michelle Stalker
Sizes: 6-8 pound and 1-2 pound preemies
Maybe I shouldn’t have used a tape yarn, but at least the single cake is gone.

Destination: Charity; Pattern: Garter Stitch Baby Jacket by Nancy Elizabeth Munroe; Size: 0-6 Months
Looks like I needed someone to “show me” about tension…ugh! I love the colors and the blocking!
Easy pattern, no seaming. I was using aluminum DPNs on the sleeves, but after the second time falling out, I switched to circulars. Too bad, because now I have a seam at the needle joins. Oh well, at least one is under the arm.
Oh, and I am missing the neck button.

Feel The Spin by Deborah Harry
Love her, and the opportunity to use this song title for an old favorite crochet pattern.
Pattern: Divine Hat by Sarah Arnold
I made this pattern as one of the first, upon my return to crochet years ago. I decided to make it again…and now that I know there is a preemie version, I’ll make that also.
I screwed up the brim, forgetting to incorporate the back post double crochets.

The Slouch Skully
Dimensions: 11.5-inch (D) x 12-inch (H)
Pattern: Modified Pokemon Slouch Beanie by Black Cat Crochet
Modifications: four rows of half double crochet and 10 rows of single crochet converted to double crochet + one row of single crochet. As such, the skully does not achieve the 14-inch height of the previous one, crocheted in more accurate aran yarn weights. This have confirms that needed height and the stitch pattern.

All yarns are presumed acrylic, having performed not burn test.
Unfortunately, the white yarn I used is more likely a DK weight. I seem to remember it being Cascade 220 superwash, and for some reason my mind wants to keep labeling it as worsted. Well, not it’s gone! You will notice in pictures how the white portion really starts to separate and I am attributing that to the lighter weight yarn.

Christmas Is Coming by Vince Gauraldi Trio form A Charlie Brown Christmas
Had to get an xmas themed song for such a suggestively festive slouch beanie I crocheted with red and green stripes.
Dimensions: 9 (W) x 17 (H) x 28 (C)
Pattern: Be The Rainbow Slouch Beanie by Brooke Etter
I followed the pattern, exactly; from a mechanical and mathematical perspective. I did not follow the color scheme. I was hoping to end up with something along the lies of Dr. Seuss, but ended up with a slouch beanie with elfish inclinations.
“Not that there’s anything wrong with it.
The OTHER thing wrong with it is that point that just begs for a pom-pom to hang from it! ARGH! That damn point also emphasizes – at least, for me – Christmas…bah, humbug!
I do agree that the height on Holding Back The Years was not long enough, therefore, no slouch.
But, then there is…
Woolworth Woolco “Wintuk” Knitting Yarn
Color: 30 Red & 52 Dark Green; Content: 100% Orlon Acrylic; Weight: 3, DK
I just presumed worsted and crocheted the hat with an H-hook…and…I had the yarn label!
Which said nothing about weight! Fortunately, I did not discover this until I was updating my Ravelry project page, after the hat was finished. This could explain the opening appearing bell-shaped after trying to put it on my 23-inch head.
Heck, I got plenty of scraps to make another…without a point!
