Snug-a-Bug Free Crochet Pattern

This is such a sweet blanket…it will keep your lil one ‘Snug (as) a Bug!’ Hence, Snug’a’Bug! Pattern also has instructions on how to make it as large as you want.  This blanket is super easy.

It’s based off of single crochet, double crochet…and well, your base chain.  The texture of the yarn creates the ‘fuzziness’ so you can easily use any yarn you’d like.  Don’t forget that baby shower gift you need to make…why buy something when you can make something! It’s so special!

X-Factor Head Wrap Free Crochet Pattern

I have seen many head wraps during my crochet designing. …some are toooooo plain and some are toooo funky…. I wanted to design something that I would wear and something that my daughters would want. And as you can see--my 14 year old LOVES this one so much she was excited to model it for me!
I want to challenge you to at least TRY it. 
It LOOKS hard, but it isn’t!

Materials:
Size E-3.50mm Crochet hook
Medium worsted weight yarn
Medium button
Sewing thread/needle

Gauge:
1 inch in sc =4 stitches and 4 rows.

Measurements:
Length: 20.5 inches
Width: 3.5 inches

Legend:
Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Single Crochet (sc)
Single Crochet Decrease (sc dec)
Front Post Treble (fptr)



To begin:
Chain 5.
Row 1: Sc in the second chain from hook and across. (4 sts)
Rows 2-5: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st. (4 sts)
Row 6: Ch 1, turn; 2 sc, sc 2, 2 sc. (6 sts)
Row 7: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st. (6 sts)
Row 8: Ch 1, turn; 2 sc, sc 4, 2 sc. (8 sts)
Row 9: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st. (8 sts)
Row 10: Ch 1, turn; 2 sc, sc 6, 2 sc. (10 sts)
Row 11: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st. (10 sts)
Row 12: Ch 1, turn; 2 sc, sc 8, 2 sc. (12 sts)
Rows 13-15: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st.
Row 16: Ch 1, turn; sc 2, fptr around the first sc in the third row BELOW (row 13)
Skip the next 4 sc on the third row BELOW, work fptr around next sc on third row BELOW. Skip next two sc from the last sc made on current row, sc in the next 4 stitches. Fptr around the next sc on the third row BELOW, skip next four on third row BELOW, fptr around the next sc on third row below. Skip the next two stitches on current row, sc in the last 2 stitches.

Rows 17-19: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st. (12 sts)

Row 20: Ch 1, turn; fptr around third sc on the third row BELOW. Skip first stitch, sc in the next 4 stitches. Work fptr around next sc on third row BELOW. Skip next 4 sc on third row BELOW, work fptr around next sc on third row BELOW. Skip next two stitches from last sc made on current row, sc in next 3 stitches and then fptr on next sc on third row BELOW.
This row will have 13 stitches, but that is correct.

Row 21: Ch 1, turn; sc in the 2nd stitch from the hook (not the first) and across. This will make up for the extra stitch. You will now have 12 stitches on row.

Rows 22-29: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st.
Repeat rows 16-29 two more times. You will now have 3 sets of ‘x’s and 9 rows of sc.
For the 4th set of ‘x’s: Repeat rows 16-20.

To complete: (I am going to restart with numbers so that you can count clearly from here).
Row 1: Ch 1, turn; sc in the 2nd stitch from the hook (not the first) and across. This will make up for the extra stitch. You will now have 12 stitches on row.
Rows 2-3: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st.
Row 4: Turn; sc dec, sc 8, sc dec. (10 sts)
Row 5: Ch 1, turn; sc in each st.  
Row 6: Turn; sc dec, sc 6, sc dec. (8 sts)

To finish, attach button to the beginning edge.
