Last week I shared with you the beginning of a new project, using a crochet Brioche stitch that I’ve figured out.
This week I’m showing you some of the work in progress.
I love the stitch pattern, the colour change is so effective. At first glance it really looks like knit!
And then there’s the decrease:
This took a bit of figuring out, but the overall effect is amazing.
Then there’s the trim:
I’m considering making this a bit longer, because it’s going also turn up:
And the final touch? The pom pom! According to The Guardian, pom pom beanies are right on trend in 2015, and lucky for me I’m all over it!
But aren’t these colours just insane? The vibrancy of the Scheepjes Colour Crafter is amazing. I haven’t edited the images to boost the saturation at all. Quite the opposite, in fact! Orange and hot pink (or is it really Shocking Pink?) are probably my favourite colour combination. They’re just such happy shades. I have a cousin who would rock these colours and my aunt would easily pull off decorating her house using these two. In fact I think she may have even done it!
Next week, the reveal! And you know what the best part is, I’ve made this hat to be One Size Fits All! Well, most…
You can pick up the yarn at Scheepjes retailers all over the Benelux, or internationally from Deramores, Wool Warehouse, and at Paradise Fibers in North America!

It has taken months and months and MONTHS to get there, but I finally have my St Patrick’s Day Leprechaun hat pattern ready to go.
Well, I have it in the newborn size for now. I’m still working on the toddler size and will post the adult size as soon as I can.
The pattern is available in all of my stores, Etsy, Craftsy, and of course, Ravelry!
Here’s how it looks:
To celebrate, I’m giving away two copies of the pattern for free! All you have to do to win is comment on this original post (on missneriss.com), and I will draw a random winner on Wednesday 12 March! I will announce the lucky winners here and they will also be contacted by email.
Good luck, and thanks so much for your ongoing support!

I’m calling it. Minions are over and Cabbage Patch Kids are back! Well, I don’t really believe that myself, but it seems everywhere I look I see cute babies wearing Cabbage Patch Kids hats.
Did you have one as a child? I think I was the only girl at school not to have one (I didn’t have any My Little Ponies either, poor me) and now all of a sudden I’m in an age group where it’s time to be nostalgic for all things 80s!
This last week I had two orders to make these Cabbage Patch Kids hats, and I found a great free pattern from the Dearest Debi site. The pattern is for a newborn, but it is extremely easy to up-size it to whatever you need.
Here are the results of my endeavours:
What do you think about this new craze to be rocking the crochet world? I’ve never been a fan of Cabbage Patch Kids. I prefer the Garbage Gang/pail Kids instead. But everything comes back into fashion, so best to just embrace it!
