Toboggan-itis

Even though it’s still basically a big humid griddle outside, there have been murmurs abound containing dangerous and possibly spiced autumn themes. Which means the time for SQUISHY BULKY COZY AMAZINGNESS is approaching!

Toboggans

 

With this in mind, I got busy with my 6.00 mm hook and whipped up a bunch of these faux fur pompom beanies from my Gnome Toboggan crochet pattern, and gave the pattern itself an update. Oh yeah! And I put it on sale through Ravelry, where you can get it for $2 OFF until September 14. Yay! Just plop it in your cart and the discount will be taken at checkout.

This pattern can be made with about 250-300 yards of any bulky weight yarn, and has a soft stretchy knit-look texture. That’s thanks to the post stitches, for which there is a photo tutorial and step-by-step instruction section in case you aren’t familiar with them.

I made a couple cosmetic changes to the PDF file, including switching to the two-column layout for easier reading on mobile devices.  Try it out! Getcha some squishy hats goin’ on!

To reiterate: Yay!
