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!

You know by now that I love hats. This hats is amazing , but it is hard on the wrists as it includes twisted stitches and twisted cables. In the end I will say that I will make it again. I don't like long hats, I like to hear around me when I am walking or outside. I made it with four repetitions only, I could have probably used another inch at the brim and fold it if necessary, but the circumference of the hat is perfect. Jared Flood KoolHaas is an amazing project that will guide you through the steps of twisted stitches and twisted cables. This is done in Malabrigo worsted weight with size 6 mm. I started with US 7 DPNs for the brim, yep the other way around as I am contrarian lol! I know how I knit so I figure I need to make sure it goes over my big head. Once the brim was done, I proceeded to make the hat on US 6. Thanks for stopping by.
