Artemis & Apollo

Do you LOVE the look of knitted hats, but don’t really have the time or the patients to actually learn how to knit? Well then I have the BEST solution for you! A KNITTING LOOM, now this is not anything new by any means, but it is new to me! You can purchase them at any craft supply store in various sizes and shapes and you can knit tons of things with them without having to spend hours upon hours trying to figure out how to knit.

I am not going to do a step by step tutorial with pictures etc, cause there are plenty of them online that you can find (u-tube). But I will let tell you how I accomplished the slouchy hat for my son.
Materials:
Super Chunky Yarn
Round Knitting Loom with 31 Pegs
Knitting Loom Tool (hook) (will come with the knitting loom when you buy it)
Yarn Needle (again will come with your loom)
Crochet Hook (optional)
Large Wooden Button (or button of your choice)

To make this particular slouchy hat I ended up doing 35 rounds on the knitting loom. Once I finished the hat and closed it off (again there are plenty of tutorials out there on how to do this). I then took a crochet hook and crocheted two rows of single crochet at the base of the hat. This step is optional, but I highly recommend it as if you don’t do this step the base of the hat will curl and wont look as nice. Next I attached the button with the same yarn I used for the hat. Then in order to have it stay looking slouched all the time, I sewed the back of the hat down to the base. Super easy, pretty quick and your little guy or gal will look adorable!

DOLLAR STORE TREASURES – DIY WINDOW COVERING

These really neat plastic designs came in a package of 2 for $2.00! They are available in all sorts of styles and you can get them in either black or white. I ended up buying quite a few of the
