Ear Flap Beanie

I've always posted tutorials or links to tutorials for EVERYTHING that I sell in my Etsy shop and I plan to keep it that way. Well today I listed an Ear Flap Beanie that I actually learned how to make from a book (not the computer... can you believe it?)! SO I wanted to share the name of it with you so you can go get yourself a copy! In fact, I learned everything I know about crochet from this book. You gotta love its title too; The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller. Here are a few of the projects I've made from patterns in the book (the author is so cool too - I emailed her with some questions and she actually got back to me and was nice as could be!)...

Garden Scarf
Granny's No Square (Granny Square Purse)
Seija Set (Car Seat Blanket and Ear Flap Beanie)
Fat Bottom Bag
Lil Monkey (Beanie)
One-Skein Scarf
Some of these photos are 2 and 3 years old and they kinda make me wanna crochet something again... I used to be really into it but I burned myself out by obsessing. Something I always do. In fact the reason I chose the non-specific, all-inclusive name, A Load Of Craft, was because I knew I'd jump from one thing to another. Anyone else ever do that? Or is it just me?


  1. Came over from Sew Cute Tues. Love the hat. I'm always on the lookout for good hat patterns. Thanks for the book name, I'll check it out.

  2. My mom taught me to crochet years ago, but I have since forgotten. I've been wanting to start up again, so I think I'll get the Hooker book. :P

    I jump around ALL the time! I tell my husband and friends that I have adult ADD; it just isn't diagnosed yet. I'm so glad I'm not the only one.

  3. I'm the same way...glad to know it's not just me!

    Thanks for linking @Creative Itch's "Sew Cute Tuesday"!

  4. Star, did you make that beanie?! I totally want one of those, but a little nervous to try as I've never crocheted. Would you say it's pretty simple or more of an advanced project than just starting out? I love this post! You are so talented.

  5. I move from craft to craft too, it's more fun that way!

  6. I would love for you to share how to make the "one skein scarf". Thanks!
