Beginner Friendly Crochet Hat and Matching Mittens
Robert again, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and Happy 2023!
In this month’s blog I wanted to share two popular projects that remind me of Melanie during the winter season from her archives: Absolute Beginner Crochet Hat – Matches Mittens and Beginner Friendly Crochet Mittens .
Ainsley was so excited to help model Melanie’s hat and mittens and she knew exactly where they were. She has a little cubby with all her mom’s crochet projects.
It was a happy moment for her to wear them as they keep her so toasty and also remind her of her mom.
Beginner-Friendly Crochet Projects
Melanie loved making these cozy hats and mittens!
I remember when she finished them for our trip to Montana a couple of years ago when she accompanied me on a work trip.
It was freezing outside but Melanie put on her warm gloves and hat and followed me all around the snowy woods while I gathered film footage for a HAMMR Productions project.
We snapped some fun photos on that trip for her blog and socials, and it was a wonderful time together.
Busy Hands and Listening Ear
One of Melanie’s favorite things was listening to me, her friends or our children talk about whatever we had on our minds while she worked on her quilt and crochet projects.
These crocheted mittens and hats are such a warm reminder of how much love she put into every project and they’re so cute!

Thank you again for your continued support. It helps us financially and emotionally that you all are still engaging with Melanie’s work.
We appreciate you so much! On a daily basis, I read all the comments on all of Melanie’s Social Media accounts and they bring a great deal of joy to our hearts.
If you haven’t yet watched our film about Melanie’s life and legacy Made With Melanie, it may be a good way to honor her as we approach the one-year anniversary of her passing.
I wish you all great peace and love during this new year.
P.S. I recently started a blog on my website HERE, and my first post is about the process of creating my documentary film Made With Melanie. If you’re interested in that please check it out and stay a while.
