please take a few moments to read before making your purchase.

The muse always thumps me on the head after midnight. When I finally crawl into bed, I dream of Nutella sandwiches.

SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION SECTION:
Designs appear on Annie's Attic and other online sites. Published works are included in "Poncho Panache", Crafts Magazine and Woman's Day. I had way too much fun sharing fake food crafting techniques on Phoenix Channel 12 with the wonderful Kathy Cano-Murillo (Crafty Chica)and the Arizona Republic.

This is the home of the antsy artisan who likes to create quick and easy projects for intermediate or enthusiastic beginners. I have been creating and selling texture rich gauge free crochet patterns for years. Luscious texture is produced without having to use intimidating hook gymnastics. Most patterns are seamless and crocheted in rounds without slip stitches at end of each round. Patterns are written using American crochet terms. Please check back often because new designs are always being hatched.

CROCHETING IS GOOD FOR YOU SECTION:
Research clearly shows the life enhancing benefits of playing with hooks. My bio reads: astronaut, neurosurgeon and lion tamer. Yep, crocheting is good for you.

I also offer finished pieces created with the hands of an experienced and responsible artisan. Each item has excellent material genes to withstand the test of time.

The talent on Etsy inspires me on a daily basis. Check out a beautiful shop called CBreezeDesigns owned by lovely Christy. Her glass wonders are like little pieces of heaven. A special thank you to SeaDreamStudio for the awesome new banner - run, don't walk to her Etsy Shop. Last but not least, hugs to my gifted photographer Hannah for her incredible photos. You can find her at: www.loveysphotomemories.instaproofs.com.

FINE PRINT/PLEASE READ LISTING BEFORE PURCHASING SECTION/HELP KEEP MY TYLENOL CONSUMPTION DOWN:
Projects are emailed in PDF format. If you are unable to open file or file reads as "damaged", no worries! Just download a free Adobe Reader or upgrade by linking onto:
http://get.adobe.com/reader

PDF files feature color photos. Please turn on color and black and white settings before printing out files.

Listings state whether item is pattern and not actual garment. If I only charged $4.99 for an item that took hours to create plus cost of materials, shipping, PayPal and Etsy fees, my new address would be the license plate of my car.

Patterns can be instantly downloaded courtesy of Etsy. Patterns are not returnable due to nature of product.

Please use Google or visit your local library's craft section to instruct and inspire you. You Tube offers excellent visuals. One of my fav sites is: Art of Crochet by Teresa. Just link to: www.youtube.com and type this title into search engine for instant happiness.

Patterns are lab tested on grumpy relatives kept in well-ventilated cages. I am happy to give email support and would love to treat each one of you like only children but please remember that humans need to sleep at least two hours a night or will end up in the looney bin making weird things out of popsicle sticks.

Instructions or any parts thereof cannot be duplicated and touted as one's original pattern. This includes translations into other languages. The word "copy" is not to be confused with the word "inspiration". For a more definitive explanation, please do a Wikipedia search for the word "no". Patterns and projects may not be distributed or resold to friends, family or cats with issues, .

In a heartfelt desire to share, please note that actual completed items may be sold unless otherwise indicated to fuel your entrepreneurial spirit. If item is currently displayed in your shop, I would appreciate you adding the following wording in your listing:

Pattern by:
Nutella Dreams Late Night Crafts
www.thnkdfrent.etsy.com

WOULD YOU KISS YOUR MOTHER WITH THAT MOUTH FEEDBACK/THE SELLER IS ALWAYS WRONG SECTION:
Please keep your eyes on the road and follow pattern directions exactly as written. Listings clearly indicate whether pattern is for beginner or intermediate beginner. If a crochet hook is as foreign to you as an iron or oven (excuse my projecting), pretty please do not purchase my patterns.

Most projects require knowledge of crocheting in the round and experience reading patterns. If you ask nicely, I'm sure your cougar granny would love to teach you the art of crocheting after she's finished hitting the clubs.

I design hats for the average size head which is neither 3 inches around nor 400 inches around - unless you are the victim of a 14th century curse.

Please check your Spam folder for wayward files and contact me if patterns do not reach your addy within 24 hours.

Please don't assume the pattern is wrong and was designed by someone in a strait jacket. Just convo me if you have a problem before leaving feedback and I will do anything except remove that stuff stuck in your shower drain to help.

Have fun looking!

Love,
Ele aka thnkdfrent

This is a well written, easy to follow pattern. There was only one difficulty. I kept waiting to see the secret thing that would magically shape the hat. Imagine my surprise when I tied off the last stitch, and it was right there in front of me, beautifully shaped, with a firm brim holding its shape. Color me amazed! I had tried other patterns that offered to do the same, but failed to deliver. This artist delivered beautifully.

Not only do I love the hat, but the designer has been very accommodating. I like shopping in stores like hers and I WILL be back.
