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!

Easy Head Hugger by Danny Oullette

Easy Head Hugger by Danny Oullette can be found HERE. is a great pattern to make and it only takes about 50 grams of malabrigo, it took me a bit more as I was not knitting as tight as I Usually knit. I could have gone down a needle size or half a size and that would have taken care of that situation. The hat has a loop at the bottom of the back like most of my hats.

Once I was done with the hat I went around the neighborhood to take pictures and show off my hat. This hat took me a bit of time as I am retraining myself to knit in a different way than before . My new way is a lot more relaxed and a lot less tight than before. It is a pleasure to knit this hat without having to deal with a lot of the tension. The pattern is better suited for a single color, but I wanted to see what it would look like in this Loro Barranquero Malabrigo. It is better in one solid color, but what can I say it goes with the scarf that I am very close to finish.
So there are more Danny Hats to come in the near future, I actually have one for a sweater I will be making, Hat, scarf and sweater combo what a Hoot! Thanks for stopping by!
