Ari Wrap Wristers

https://hodgepodgecrochet.wordpress.com/ Ari Wrap Wristers

I’m officially in LOVE with these amazing wristers! These started as a stitch I found in a REALLY old crochet book–the kind that was written at the turn of the century and is falling apart but so amazing that you can’t bear to part with it!

As soon as I saw the stitch I knew that I needed to create a pattern around it and so the Ari Wrap Wristers were born!

I couldn’t be happier with the results. They have that perfect mix of glam and sophistication while still being an amazing accessory for everyday trips to the mall or the market (or even around the house–say while writing up a blog post!)

Lil Indian Boy/Girl Hat

Today’s blog post will be turned over to my very good friend and fellow HodgePodger Debby Wisely so she can showcase her brand new pattern of the Lil Indian Boy/Girl hat!

Be sure to show her some love in the comments!

Hi, I’m Debbie Wisely and I’m a crocheter. Doesn’t this sound like the start of a 12-step program?

I’m the proud Mom of a son who is a U.S.A. Navy submariner. I’m married to a great guy who supports me in all my craftiness, (should have been part of the marriage vows!) and we have 3 furbabies.

Crocheting is my addiction. I’ve tried so many other crafts from clay to ceramics and pretty much everything in-between. Even owned a ceramics business for a short time, but I always come back to crocheting. I get giddy just thinking about shopping for yarns and what I can make with it.  I know I’m not the only one out there, so ‘fess up and join my addiction!

I came about writing my first pattern when I was looking for a feather pattern. With Halloween and Thanksgiving coming around, I wanted to make a little Indian boy and girl hat. I scoured every avenue I could to find one, and there are a few out there, but not what I was looking for. So I decided to make my own. Ok, not too hard, I can do this…..and viola! The feather pattern was born! Well, MY feather pattern. Lol



There aren’t too many Indian hats out there either so again, I wanted to design my own. Now with my feather pattern complete,  I got down to making the Indian boy and girl hat! I was so excited. I’ve never written a pattern before so I just took it step by step.

First the hat part which is a pretty standard pattern for all hats. I knew I wanted a headband and feathers, but what colors? So after some careful thought, I went for orange, a deep red, turquoise, yellow, carrot and black. The headband was pretty easy too but the design was a little difficult to translate and with the help of my testers, that was worked out too.

Add some pigtails for the girl version….and the Lil Indian Boy/Girl Hat pattern was created!


I’m so happy with it and I’m totally eager to start my next pattern to write up. I’ve got some ideas lurking in my head, now I just have to figure out how to make them. So keep an eye out for me!
