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!

Aerilon Farmers Cap

May I present you the Aerilon Farmer's Cap. It was the Palermo Sun Hat, but I changed the name. For those who where following my Tapestry Crochet Hat crochet along, you will finish the Hat continuing the FPDC until the size you want , then you can finish the hat with a reverse single crochet border.. This is the hardest thing to do in the world when is a pattern as complex as this one, to write instructions row by row, it stifles inspiration, so after a while I went free form and thus the end product.
There is a combination of Tapestry Crochet all around, but the fact is that there are lots of Front Post Double Crochet involved as well. Horizontal single crochet can be seen on those lines that are horizontal that make a relief. Finally I got tired of crocheting with an f hook and picked up the stitches with my DPNs and finished the hat with a Fair Isle edge. So it is a combo knit-crochet-Tapestry Crochet Hat. Thanks for stopping by.
