>Irish Crochet Tam Revisited


front of tam

I made this (the above tam) a long time ago and sold it. One of those things you know you wish you had not sold.  I have borrowed it back from the nice lady who owns it to make a copy and draft a pattern of it.  I am using the same type of yarn as I did the first time but it is dusty rose in color.  I will show how far I am on Monday as I plan to crochet on it during General Conference this weekend.  I hope to have the new one finished this week.

I want to be able to have the pattern for sale in the next few weeks will take me a little to get the pattern drafted because I want to make charts for the embellishments.  Since I have never done that on the computer it may take some doing.  I am also debating if I want to make a knitted version of the hat with Irish crochet trim.

>New hat in store


I call it the deep Ocean blue ponytail hat. I hate ties on pretty hats that get stuck in zippers and things like that or become untied. So there isn’t any ties on this one. It has metal frog closures that are padded from the body so as not to rub by the black trim. The hat is such that if you want to wear your hair up in a pony tail or in a bun on the back of your head you are able to do so and still keep your ears warm. This is available in shop now.




This is the last day of the sale in my etsy store. Tonight at midnight I take the sale prices off of the items and they go back to their normal prices.

>Baby Bonnet Pattern Antique

Here is a $1.50 pattern for you to purchase if you like baby bonnets. I don’t care if you sell items from this just do not sell the pattern please just link people back to here thanks . Just thought it would be fun for people to use. Now it is in old terms and you do have to know about crochet and traveling from one level to another but with practice I think you can get it just fine. You will need to download it from Ravelry. Please let me know if that link works ( the buy now at the bottom of this post) I think it is my first time I am trying that maybe not can’t remember if I did that on the caplet or the orange shirt. The pattern is circa 1862 just a little after it as it has reference in the leaflet to the London exhibit ( i.e. world fair) The authoress of this pattern is also from London ( Cloudesley Square to be exact) so these are in European terms of crochet.

This is Ellie she is the new head model in the store I got her about 2 months ago and just didn’t have time to take photos of her with the move and all.

head bandblue 1912 hat

I love having her as my model it means less floating hats in just black space and it doesn’t have to be my face under any hats.

Which is something I am all for the less photos of me the better in my opinion I usually do not like my photo taken just sort of funny that way.


I should get some new family photos though oh well have to wait on that for now.


The last two hats are new in the store today.
