Crocheted Tam... and Tam/Hat Set...Designed by Me!!

Handmade Designs by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
 I was making my 4th crocheted hat...when it came to me just how to make a tam... I knew I was going to have to make me one...and I set to work... this is my first crocheted tam. Then as I was making this one I had all kinds of things come to my mind... So I made the next one down.... then when I woke up in the middle of the night after finishing the second one... the one with the fun bobbles...I knew just how I wanted to make a matching after my nap today I set to work.

The greatest thing is last week during my prayers I told God... I said "God I so want to make amazing thing... I want to make things that go WOW!" God cares about the desires of our hearts... we just have to ask.  God wants to give us so much... we just have to do the asking... I am learning to ask for the big, for the amazing... because nothing is impossible with God!!

Fall Infinity Scarf with How to Video for a Loose Cast Off

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside AL

 This is an Infinity Scarf or Cowl that I did on my CinDWood round afghan loom... it is knitted in the round.  I didn't know I would like it until I got it off the loom... now I am really excited at how it turned out!  The exciting part is the loose cast off stitch!  I think I invented it.. I have not seen it before and it is wonderful... it ends up the same "size" as the e-wrap cast on so you don't have to do anything extra once you take this off the loom!!!.. But block your work of course. I am including a video at the end of this post.  Please let me know how you like it!!  Hugs Jeannie

Crocheted Cowl

Handmade Design by
Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, Al
 I have been working on a Shell Stitch Afghan for my new bedroom... I needed a break... I bought some chunky yarn...and a Q hook.... this is crocheted with two strands of chunky yarn held together as one... this was really simple and because of the larger yarn and hook it crocheted up in about 3 hours.   I love those quick projects... this is really soft and snugly and warm.  Thank you so much for looking!!  Hugs, Jeannie

Some fun things I have been making!!

 Handmade Designs by

I am so excited about this is made with some really special yarn that I got as a gift for my birthday from Madison and Cory... my sweet daughter and son-in-law.  I was waiting on just the right stitch/design to come alone...I really wanted to show off the yarn... I don't follow patterns but found a beautiful v-stitch pattern and went to work learning how to make the stitch...the rest is my best copy of the design.


 I started this twisty scarf a while back...then had to wait on some more yarn to finish the project... if I followed patterns I would know how much yarn I needed....LOL... I have done this same design in a much lighter lace... which I like better..this would be pretty with a heavy wool coat.  It reminds me of my MawMaw, purple was her favorite color.

 This is a scarf that I am working on...I went to The Taming of the Ewe Saturday... Detta was working and she was teaching this broomstick lace class.... it is crochet...she talked me into the free class...and I am so glad that she did... this is beautiful...I can't wait to try different variations of this would make a beautiful throw!!  Thank you Detta!

 This is a slouchy tam that I made on my Purple 48 peg, Knifty Knitter loom... I used one strand of bulky yarn... and increased stitches  to make the "slouch." So happy at the size of the slouch...this is my own "pattern" so to speak... It is not written out just something I got in my head...I hope to do a video on how to add what I call Invisible Peg stitches.

Thank you so much for looking!!
