I have not learned how to follow a written pattern so I worked free form to create this scarf for my daughter. It took a lot of time working up, taking out then redoing, but I accomplished it, though I won't ever do another. I prefer to work on much smaller objects and hats.
Everyone needs a crazy monster hat, still have more to make.
Fun loving zany oven mitts. We've found now that everything tends to be made in China, oven mitts are too small and tend to fall apart within one year, so wasteful and painful when the material disintegrates so fast that hands got burnt. Remedy make my own to fit larger mens hands.
Crochet hot pot pads, fun to do while watching TV. I mix cotton yarn with threads to make them more durable.
Do away with plastics that fill up the earth with waste that does not ever disappear and sew up large shopping bags.
Special requests, stocking to suit the individual, all hand made with much love, thought and time.

I designed this style as in the winter I like my ears covered, yet don't always need earflaps that tie. It fits well as the hat slopes around the face keeping ears and back of head warm. I find this style does not push up off my head, so far it tends to stay put. This hat is a large medium to large size as it covers the eyebrows of my model.
