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!

Corn on a Cap Finished

This cap or hat is made with Kollage Cornucopia Corn Yarn. It is made in single crochet in the "Tapestry Crochet" Style. It has three relief single crochet horizontal lines in brown, and the reversible single crochet edge for the termination of the cap. It is very springy and I will be showing some of my caps later on when I do my Spring Hat Show and Tell Video later in the spring.
Just one touch of lusciously soft "Cornucopia," & you may find it hard to believe that it's sensationally crafted in the USA of 100% corn! With a woven tape construction, I find it hard to Crochet, but not impossible. It was harder to do single Tapestry Crochet points than to work on Double and treble crochet. Also the reversed Single Crochet border was easy to work. I you are looking for something exotic that it is eco-friendly, "Cornucopia" from Kollage Yarns gives you both. I may add that it is machine washable & dryable, great for summer as a cotton alternative or all year long.
I hope that you enjoy the developing story of this hat , it was born out of frustration and through one of the most trying times of my life. May the next hats bring more fun lol! Thanks for stopping by!
