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!

Khloros Hat Stage 1

Hi there and welcome to Stage 1 of the Wollen Mutsen Sonnetto done in malabrigo superwash.  One of the things that you to  have notice is the measuring tape!  Yes when I have reached the approximately length of about 7 inches, I know that I have completed the stage 1 of the hat according to the instructions.  I am using a Size 3.75 mm aka F hook, but more directly a 3.75mm.  This allows me to play around with the texture of the hat by deciding if I want to alternate hook sizes, sometimes you have to.  Crochet as much as kniting is not a black and white craft, you have to play with the greys once in a while.

This malabrigo superwas has more than one filament, but these Addi crochet Hooks are fantastic toi crochet with, smooth and fast.  Now I am in route to Stage two which is bringing the hat down the sides of my head.  I hope you enjoy the Journey of the Wollen Mutsen malabrigo superwash hat.  Thanks for stopping by.
