After cutting the squash in half and scooping out the seeds, I pre-baked the squash till it was soft. During that time I put some veggies (carrots, broccoli and leek) & fresh herbs (rosemary, sage and dill) in my blender to get it finely chopped. I mixed that yummy stuff with some cooked brown rice.

This pattern was completely free style - I started with a chain stitch that measured from ear to ear, then did a row of double crochet in the chain. Once I had this foundation, I did a variation on picot & filet crochet which included basic chain, single & double crochet knots. Try to make up your own, it's alot of fun!
YAY! On less cold days I can sport this baby by itself... and on killer true winter days I am going to combine this with my wool hat! It's really easy to make and I did it all in one night!!!

( Don't mind me being in pajamas/long johns ... it's snowing today and I didn't think I needed to get dressed.) Isn't Toots the cutest !??!
Winter hats are one of the most popular winter items at The Oko Box , prices ranging from a super de duper low $9 up to a still low $30 - this makes giving & wearing green a whole lot easier! I wear the Spider Wool Hat (4th picture below)- and it rocks!
Click on any of the pictures above to start shopping for some great winter accessories now! :)
