Pumpkin Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Pumpkin Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

The Pumpkin Beanie Hat is the updated Version of the
I decided to update the Crochet Pattern and 
add lot's of new pictures and a brand new video.


The beanie pumpkin Hat is designed using Bulky (5) yarn.
I used I Love This Chunky yarn From Hobby Lobby,
 / spice for the orange and spruce for the green.
I really love how the new version turned out, 
but I still love the old one as well.

We Will be adding a new Video For the Face features,
 as well. So be watching for that.


This Crochet Pattern is Considered Easy to Moderate,
 but not beginner because of the 
Front Post stitches. And It's a great way to learn
 Front Post stitches.

COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (133) Jonah Larson Yarn Kits | Posh Pooch Designs

 COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (133) Jonah Larson Yarn Kits
 and Yarnie Fun
With Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


See The Video On my Crochet Youtube
 Channel At This LINK




I went shopping at My local Michael's Craft Store 
Saturday Morning With My husband.
He loves to Yarn shop with me, and is great at picking colors.

I Picked Up Some of Jonah Larson's Yarn kits.
 This is Jonah of Jonah's hands.
He is a wonderful young man, well spoken and 
loves yarn and yarn crafts. 
The kits were on clearance for a great price of $3.99 Each.
They are a perfect sets or gifts for children and Beginners.
Each set has all you need to complete a crochet project.
The Crochet Hooks are Boye hooks and the yarn is
 nice quality. And it also includes the crochet pattern to go
 along with the project. 



I am very impressed with Jonah Larson because he has
 made it completely normal for a young man to love to 
crochet and do yarn crafts.
 
Crochet is NOT Just for Grandmas!
It's For everyone!
Here is the LINK For His Crochet Youtube Channel

As I always say, Everyone should Crochet, it's so good 
for you. Don't let what other say or think stop you
 from Crochet and crafts. 

_____________________________________________________________________

While At Michael's I also saw an endcap of
 O'Go Blanket yarn. 
It was 10.5 oz. for $11.99. A Little Steep for me, 
When the regular Blanket Yarn of 10.5 oz. is $8.99.

Thought I would share what I found.
 They did not have any of the other O'Go yarns.
I might be tempted to get some,
 if they had Christmas colors.

Let’s Go Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Let’s Go Hooded Cowl Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach Of  Posh Pooch Designs



The Let's Go Hooded Cowl is the perfect accessory
 for those who are often on the go during the cold
 winter months. And It is quick to pop on and off, 
if the weather warms up. I think the Name 
"Let's Go Hooded Cowl" is a perfect name for
 my new crochet pattern design.
And it is great for the guys and the girls

This Hooded Cowl is Stitched up using 
The New O'Go Yarn from Yarnspirations. 
It is the Caron Colorama in the Overboard Colorway.

Learn More About This New Yarn At This LINK


 It is a bulky (5) acrylic yarn, and I stitched it up with 
a K / 6.50 mm crochet hook. So not only is it 
super quick to stitch up, it is super easy as well.
 The yarn is nice to crochet with and 
I love the shades of blues and grays in this colorway.
I wanted to design a New Hooded Cowl and I wanted
 to try the new O'Go Yarn.  The New Let's Go Hooded Cowl Is the perfect Crochet Pattern For Both.  


But Do not worry if you do not have this particular yarn, 
And Bulky (5) yarn will work just fine.

Lace Pumpkin Topper Crochet Pattern By Sara Sach
 
Skill: Easy

Crochet Hook – J / 6.00 mm
Yarn - Bulky (5) I used Red Heart Reflective yarn (any colors)
                   Any bulky (5) yarn will work
Yarn Needle
A Fun Halloween Button
 
Stitches:
Chain (ch)
Single Crochet (sc)
Double Crochet (dc)
V Stitch ( V St)
 Skip (sk)
Space (sp)
 
Size: 5 X 5 inches
 
Notes:
Ch3 Counts as dc
 
Pattern:

R: 1 - Ch 10, starting with a 12 inch tail of yarn,
Join in a circle, ch3, dc, ch1 in the circle,
Make sure you st over the beginning tail of yarn.
*2dc, ch1* Repeat 6 more times, join, to the ch3 with a slst,
Slst between the 1st 2 d, ch4.
 (8 sets of 2dc, ch1)

R: 2 – Dc in the same sp as the ch4, ch2,
*Dc, ch1, dc, ch2 in between the next 2 dc*
Repeat From * to * 6 more times, join to the ch3 with slst,
Slst in the ch2 sp, ch3.
 (8 sets of Vst, ch2)

To Make The Topper larger for bigger pumpkins, repeat R: 2,
 adding an addition ch between V sts.
Each Row will have 8 Vsts, and an addition ch per row, between the V Sts.

R: 3 – Dc, ch1, 2 dc in the same ch 1 sp as the ch3,
*Sc in the next ch2 sp, 2dc, ch1, 2dc in the next ch 1 sp*
Repeat From * to * 6 More times, sc in the last ch2 sp,
Join to the ch3 with a slst, tie off and weave in your ends.
(8 sets of Shell st, sc)

If you made your topper larger, add an additional sc between the shell sts, per row.
 


Gently pull the beginning tail of yarn and almost close the hole,
Slide the Lace topper on your pumpkin to make 
sure the stem will fit through the hole.
You want it snug but not too tight.
Weave in the tail of yarn securely with a needle.
 
Cut a 10 inch piece of yarn, and tie a bow on the front of the lace topper.
Sew on a fun button if desired. 
 



After Your Pumpkins Are Done Doing Their Halloween Job, 
Don't just throw it out in the trash.
You can put them out for The animals like deer, squirrels, raccoons, 
fox and birds.
But before you do: Wash the pumpkins  with plain warm water
 to remove any soap, paint
 or was residue. Those can be toxic for animals. 
Slice up your pumpkin into "hand" size pieces. 
This is Helpful for smaller animals.




I Actually Save My Pumpkins, And Make Pumpkin
 Puree For my Dogs.
You can also use this Puree For Pies, Bread and other Recipes 
That call For Pumpkin Puree.

It's super easy. Remove the stems, and slice up the pumpkin into small chunks.

Leaving the skins on, put them in your crockpot. 
a Pot on the stove will work also, if you do not have a crock pot.
Do not add water, salt or any seasoning.
Add as much pumpkins chunks as will fit into the pot and cook them until mushy.

Once the pumpkin is mushy, I remove the lid, let as much water as
 possible cook off. Stirring about every 15 minutes.

Let The "mush" cool. Then you can can it, or freeze it.
I like to freeze it into small freezer bags. I pull one out and put it into 
a bowl with a lid for use.

I give my dogs a teaspoon of pumpkin twice a day. 
It helps with tummy and gland issues and they love it. 

The Puree Can Also be used in breads, cookies, cakes and pies. 


And Don't Forget About The Pumpkins Seeds!
