I bought a ton of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn for 99 cents each at Michaels, so of course, I had to find a suitable pattern for making beanies with it. I could not find a satisfactory one on the internets, so I ended up modifying existing ones till I was satisfied with it. So here you go, I am sharing it with you!

If making it in one color, you will end up using less than 1 skein of Bernat Softee Chunky yarn.
With sz K hook, Ch 4, sl st in 1st ch to make a ring,
Rd 1: ch 2, 12 dc in ring, sl st to top of 1st dc (12 dc),
Rd 2: switch to sz N hook, ch 2, 2 dc in each, sl st to top of 1st dc (24 dc),
Rd 3:  ch 2, *2 dc in 1st dc, 1 dc in next*, ** repeat till end, sl st to top of 1st dc (36 dc),
Rd 4: You have to do 7 increases in this round- try to spread them evenly- ch 2, 2 dc in 1st dc, 1 dc in next dc twice- repeat as needed to add a total of 7 dc, sl st to top of 1st dc (43 dc),
Rd 5-10: ch 2, 1 dc in each dc, l st to top of 1st dc (43 dc),
Rd 11: switch back to sz K hook, ch 1, 1 sc in each dc, sl st to 1st sc. Fasten off, leave a 3” tail and weave in.
This will make a standard men's/ women's/ teen 20-22" head circumference size hat. I have several listed (also in team colors!!) in my Ebay store here, and also in My Etsy store!
Please leave me a comment if you try it out!!

Pina Colada kheer! Pineapple coconut pudding!

I have company coming over, and decided to try this new recipe for Pina Colada kheer from Manjula's kitchen! Turned out great, I must say! I can't wait to try out some other awesome recipes from Manjula's Youtube channel!! Next on my list are her Stuffed Bell Pepper Rings ( I love her idea to do the rings instead of using whole small peppers), and dahi baingan!!
Thanks, Manjula!

Reviving my Etsy store!

I know....it's like I disappeared from blogosphere! Back for a quick post.
I decided to reopen my Etsy store! I gave up on it since traffic was sooooo slow on Etsy for me, and Ebay kinda took off! But now, I feel that I need to offer my items to Etsy shoppers, and so here goes.....Ta Da....
My Etsy store!
Check out the Sheep baby blanket! My own pattern too.
Thanks everyone for visiting my store, and also my blog, and keep on crafting!!!
