**Make sure you read through this whole post see the special we are offering on CROCHET PATTERNS for the remainder of NatCroMo 2014!**

My post today, in honor of National Crochet Month showcases two new designs that I just completed.

The first is the Houndstooth Cowl from Jocelyn Designs

This trendy Houndstooth Cowl is a must accessory for Winter and fashion.
Crocheted from a soft blend of 50% Wool and 50% acrylic, this beautiful cowl will keep you warm, yet stylish on a cold day!
This cowl is smaller than our other cowls and does not need to be wrapped. Just slip it over your head!
Wear it with a coat outdoors or indoors over a sweater.
It can be dressed up or paired with your favorite jeans for a relaxed look.
A large hook and super bulky yarn makes this a fast project.
Beautiful Winter and early Spring accessory!

 

                                                                                                        
and my Flower Pot Bonnet from Too Cute Crochet 

 How sweet is this precious little Blossom in the flower pot?
Quick and easy crochet pattern written in four sizes from Newborn to 12 months.
It is made all in one piece so you don’t have any petals to sew on afterward! Much easier than some Flower Bonnet patterns!
This adorable flower bonnet is not only trendy for today’s photography, but also a fun & easy project!
#5 Bulky yarn & a large hook make this a quick pattern to crochet.
