Happy Christmas!

I’ve been quiet here but busy off of here. The past month and a half has been a whirl of crocheting presents which of course I could not share online. With the big day finally here and all the gifts given, I’m back to creating, designing, and crocheting for Koneko Kawaii. Continue reading “Happy Christmas!”

Wednesday Addams Cosplay Hat

Wednesday Addams Coplay Hat

As mentioned in previous posts, and as you will undoubtedly see throughout Koneko Kawaii, and all of my social media, I’m a huge Halloween nerd For me, Halloween is a lifestyle and everyday is a masquerade. Much of my crocheting focus is going to be not only Halloween oriented, but centered around the art of cosplay. With that in mind, I’ve been working on creating hats for the big kids out there who still love to dress up for any time of year. My first such hat is modeled after miss Wednesday Addams.

Halloween Swap

Dark & Deadly Halloween Swap

Until recently I haven’t been too active in social media and now  I’ve been crocheting more than ever, I wanted to be more involved in the online crochet community. About a month ago I decided to resurrect my poor, neglected Ravelry account and when I did I discovered the group Dark & Deadly swaps just in time to partake in the Halloween round. Everyone who knows me knows how much I love Halloween. As soon as we were assigned partners, I started creating Halloween goodies tailored to here likings. Although we only needed to craft one thing, I did three (I just couldn’t stop, did I mention I LOVE Halloween?!) Continue reading “Dark & Deadly Halloween Swap”

Pumpkin Puff Slouch

Pumpkin Puffy Puff Slouch

As part of of goal to Crochet a Hat a Day, I chose this easy breezy puff stitch slouch for my second hat. This is my first time doing a puff stitch anything. I love how fast it worked up! I’d love to experiment much more with the puff stitch for hats. I think this makes a lovely accessory for autumn. This could be a potential go-to pattern for making a pumpkin hat, or an acorn hat. I found this free pattern from B. Hooked Crochet. It was an easy pattern to follow for those wanting to give the puff stitch a try. Continue reading “Pumpkin Puffy Puff Slouch”

TARDIS Blue Beanie

A Hat a Day

I have a new goal, that is to crochet a hat a day. I’m doing this as a way not only to build my crochet repertoire, but to also build up my inventory. I’ve been crocheting more and more these days and I’m toying with the idea of an etsy store. If anything else, I’d like to at least make enough money to fund my yarn-buying habit. I don’t know what will come of it. For right now, I’m doing this as a way to have fun, and expand my crochet skills. Without further ado, I present to you my first hat of my personal campaign. I dub it the TARDIS Blue Beanie. Continue reading “A Hat a Day”
