Pattern Re-Launch: Happy Pets, Kitty and Puppy

Cat and Dog Crochet Hat Pattern by Darleen HopkinsThe adorable Happy Pets hats was one of my earlier patterns.  The original recommended yarn had been discontinued so I reworked the pattern with the awesome Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lion Brand.  In addition to the new yarn, and photos, I reformatted the pattern presentation.  The original pattern is still the same, just presented a little bit prettier now.  I hope you like it!  In celebration, I’m offering it at 50% off (Ravelry only) from now until Jan. 18, 2015 midnight EST.  Just make sure you use coupon code “HappyPets50percent”.

Dog Themed Charity Chemo Hat by Darleen Hopkins


I’m still working on making a hat or two for the Kanine Kap Kampaign.  I just finished my second, Woof! Woof!  The pattern was improvised as I went along and used EXACTLY a full skein of Hushabye Solid by Baby Bee.  This is a really soft 50/50 cotton/acrylic blend in aran weight.  I’m really pleased with how the slouchy style turned out and it will likely end up as a pattern in the future but most likely minus the Woof Woof.  The hat weighs in at 3.5 oz.

Total hats made in the 2014 challenge to date: 11

Total weight of the hats made in the 2014 challenge to date: 2 pounds 1/4 ounces

I’m still behind in my challenge but I’ll keep on stitching! : )
