You Tube tips .. Cabling without a cable needle

I love You Tube.. around here we have learned tips on knitting, crochet, beading, cooking, raising our flock, feeding our flock, fixing the cars.. it is a very useful site.. I will be posting a few videos I have found useful in my yarn and bead works here.. under the label You Tube and tips... please give them a thumbs up and consider subscribing to their page :D

You tube crochet tips

I have found these two tips very helpful.. the first a very easy way to keep long chains from getting twisted before joining in the round... the second, no ends to weave in join for adding yarn or color changes...

7 owl beanie knit pattern

As long time owl fan myself, when a friend asked me to design a hat that had owls in a beanie style I had to give it a go... I made one for them, a few others for sell at market.. had it all typed out but didn't get the yardage.. made another .. sold as soon as it hit the table.. that is when I recalled I still needed my gauge...
I had made them using different yarns, all claiming to be the same weight but you know how that goes...
So I started over... got my gauge and yardage for the yarn it's made in now lol..
how you enjoy the pattern
now through 10/31/16 it will be on sale for
