I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Barcelona Tychus, Slytherin Step 4 WIP

Well here I have some more knitting, I have baptized the upper hat the Barcelona Tychus as I am using the colors of Barcelona City to make two hats. This hat is being made in good old Acrylic. I am not a Yarn snob by any means. lol! The picture is not too great but it is a burgundy and blue striped hat. Acrylic never looked so great. You can find the Pattern HERE , it is from Knitty and Brooke Higgings , which is my Heroine when it comes to fast making Kool Hats. I love making the Tychus!

I am almost finished with the Slytherin hat and I like the way it is looking. I did a lot of experimenting with knitting stitches that I improvised on. I made a knit and a purl in the same stitch, I also did a knit and knit below and then K2, to give these snakes a 3 D look on a 2 D environment. The snakes will look like they are ready to jump out and get you.

At This time I am starring the Starry Sky part of the hat to start the decreases. In my opinion a Slytherin hat should be pretentious and very busy and proud. I am a little busier than usual, we have our Thanksgiving Holiday coming on and a lot to do this weekend. I will be finishing the hats before next Monday for sure, thanks for stopping by!
