German Shells Virus Hat

German Shells Virus Hat Pattern

By Jonna Martinez



Hello! I wanted to share and talk about my newest pattern the German Shells Virus Hat.
This stylish lacy crochet hat is super fun and fast to work up. You can also add a pompom for a little extra personality! 



You can find the pattern for this hat on my Etsy and Ravelry shops. 

I used a large pompom maker, Caron Simply soft (one skein even with the pompom) and G 4.25mm crochet hook , a yarn needle and some scissors. 

Below you can see it without the pompom. ↡


Well thank you so much for the visit! Please feel free to message me or comment below with any questions! 
        Have a lovely crochet day,

Crochet Hood On A Poncho

How To Add A Crochet Hood On A Poncho

Poncho Pattern By Drops Design
Video and Hood By Jonna Martinez


To begin I created a video for the Raspberry Smoothie Poncho. It was a fun project and I used the cherry chip color that Caron Cakes has. It did seem to be missing a little something though. 
Then a lovely subscriber asked if I would add a hood to the poncho. I have never done a hood so I said I would look into it. 
Well I am super happy with the out come!! I hope you will be too.
In the video (And it is longer than the poncho tutorial 😳But only because I also teach you how to make you're own tassels!! Yay!) I show you where to start and other details like how to turn etc. 

Please check out the HOOD video HERE 


I used a 6.00mm crochet hook, almost a whole Caron cake, along with scissors, a yarn needle and a flexible measuring tape. 


 I also liked how the rope and tassels when tied, brought the collar up to a more comfortable place than without the hood. 

Here is how the back of the hood looked on mine. 


You can add tassels like me, or you can add pompoms or nothing at all. Maybe do a ribbon or something or a cord for the rope. Lots of fun options. 



Well thank you for the visit! If you read this whole post please leave me a comment. And defiantly check out my VIDEO. xox

                     Have a lovely crochet day!
