Crochet Pattern: Pebble Rib Scarf

Free crochet pattern: Pebble Rib Scarf in Bernat Maker Home Dec by Underground CrafterThe Pebble Rib Scarf uses one of my favorite crochet stitch patterns, the pebble stitch. Unlike in the Walking in the Sand Scarf, in this scarf, the pebble stitch is worked into the back loop to create a unisex, knit-look ribbing.

I mentioned yesterday in the pattern for the Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Hat that I made this set as a holiday gift for my dad last year. The Pebble Rib Scarf has a knit look and it’s also beginner friendly. This scarf works up pretty quickly in a bulky yarn.

Crochet Pattern: Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Hat

Free crochet pattern: Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Hat in Bernat Maker Home Dec by Underground CrafterThe Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Hat is the bulky weight version of my Faux Mistake Rib Watchman’s Cap pattern. It’s a stretchy, knit-look beanie that can be worn with a rolled brim, or an unrolled brim like a stocking cap. It’s stretchy enough to fit most teens and adults.

My dad really liked the yarn I used for the Garter Rib Beanie, so I was determined to make him something using the same colorway in Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn. When I make crochet gifts for men, I try to be as “unfussy” as possible with stitches and styles. I know that my dad usually wears his hats more like stocking caps with the brim unrolled…

Free crochet pattern: Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Hat in Bernat Maker Home Dec by Underground Crafter…but I knew that some men prefer a rolled brim, so they can wear the hat more like a beanie.

Free crochet pattern: Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Hat in Bernat Maker Home Dec by Underground CrafterOnce I finished the hat, I was inspired to make a coordinating scarf. Since I already have a Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Scarf pattern, I decided to use a slightly different stitch for the Pebble Rib Scarf. That pattern will be available for free tomorrow, so be sure to stop by so you can make the whole set.

Free crochet patterns: Bulky Faux Mistake Rib Hat and Pebble Rib Scarrf in Bernat Maker Home Dec by Underground CrafterI actually made this set for my dad for a winter holiday gift last  year, but I didn’t publish the pattern until today. I figured the combination of Christmas in July and his birthday made the timing just right.

Crochet pattern: Clusters and Vs Lace Scarf

Clusters and Vs Lace Scarf, free crochet pattern in Bernat Maker Home Dec Yarn by Underground Crafter | This textured, lacy scarf has excellent drape and can be worn as a shawlette in warm weather or as a scarf in cool weather. Although listed as “intermediate” difficulty, a confident beginner can make this project. The weather hasn’t decided firmly on what season it belongs in, at least in New York City. That means it’s still scarf weather for the foreseeable future. And, once it gets too warm for scarves, it will get cold enough (at least in the air conditioning) for shawlettes.

This is where lace scarves come in. They work in the cooler weather and in the warmer weather. And, since I used Bernat Maker Home Dec, a bulky, cotton-blend yarn, this particular lace scarf has excellent drape and is very breathable.

Free pattern: Cuddly Soft Slouchy Hat in 10 sizes

Cuddly Soft Slouchy Hat, free crochet pattern in Bernat Maker Home Dec in 10 sizes by Underground Crafter | This easy slouchy hat pattern works up quickly in bulky yarn. It’s designed to meet donation requirements for Head Huggers, an organization that provides hats to people suffering from hair loss due to illness or medical treatment.

This post contains affiliate links. Yarn for the sample was generously provided by Yarnspirations.

I continue to be amazed about how much yarn is actually contained in each skein of Bernat Maker Home Dec. Last summer, I received 6 skeins for some patterns I was working on for AllFreeCrochet. From these 6 skeins, I have made 5 patterns so far (the Face the Day Bathmat, the Two-Toned Diamonds Infinity Scarf, the Garter Rib Beanie, the Aqua Ridge Slouchy Hat, and today’s pattern) and I still have a lot of yarn left. Talk about value!

Cuddly Soft Slouchy Hat, free crochet pattern in Bernat Maker Home Dec in 10 sizes by Underground Crafter | This easy slouchy hat pattern works up quickly in bulky yarn. It’s designed to meet donation requirements for Head Huggers, an organization that provides hats to people suffering from hair loss due to illness or medical treatment.

This yarn is also very soft, and that’s why I chose it for this particular project. This is part of my monthly charity spotlight series where I highlight an organization that accepts crochet or knit donations and share a free pattern, so read on for details!

January’s Featured Charity: Head Huggers

Head Huggers was founded in 2001 and their mission is to provide handmade hats to people experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy, brain surgery, burns, or other illnesses or medical treatments. Losing hair suddenly is not only traumatic, but it can also leave the head cold and make it difficult for a person to regulate body temperature.

Head Huggers accepts crochet, knit, and sewn caps. Their guidelines are simple. Hats must be new and handmade. Hats made with soft, machine washable yarns are preferred, as are those from pet- and smoke-free homes. Volunteers are welcome to mail hats to the Arizona headquarters or to contribute through one of the over 60 Head Huggers groups in the U.S. and Australia. Donors are asked to include this submission form with each hat.

Tips for Making Great “Chemo Caps”

While Head Huggers offers each crocheter a lot of freedom in creating a hat (and also shares links to many recommended patterns), most recipients will be undergoing medical treatment and will have sensitive heads. With that in mind, remember that the best “chemo caps” will be those made with soft, machine washable yarns that can be worn comfortably on naked skin and washed thoroughly after a hospital or clinic visit.

Many people undergoing medical treatment have compromised immune systems and/or are sensitive to strong odors. For that reason, avoid crocheting your hat while wearing strong-smelling lotions or perfumes, and keep your yarn and finished projects away from smoke and pet dander.

If you’re looking for more chemo cap patterns, try the Drawstring Beanie with Yarrow Flower, a free crochet pattern available in 7 sizes.
