If I was going to make the hat again I would take two skeins of the same colorway and work from two directions for this hat. Nevertheless I had two colorways that were not the same, which kind of assured me that there were not going to be color clashes or repeats. I like the last idea better, the skeins were very complementary. It took me less than a day to crochet this hat. I used the Tapestry Crochet Technique to be able to make a nice kind of woven fabric. I went up to a size G or 4.00 mm and I have about 6 to 8 yards left, the hat weighs in at 92 grams and that is with a reversed single crochet edging. If Noro could keep the vegetable matter off it would have made for a more pleasant crochet experience.
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!
