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!

"Ixidor" A Lace Slouch Hat.

"Ixidor" A Lace Slouch Hat.  

Ixidor Collage 3

Let me present to you the latest hat in my designs.  Ixidor is a unisex lace slouchy hat. The name originates from ancient times. It means “gift of Isis”, a Goddess of ancient Egypt. It can be a regular hat, a slouch or a Tam. It all depends on how you block it. You may see it’s versatility in the main picture, worn in different ways. You.will find your favorite style, then make one for you and one for a friend.

I want to thank Naomi and Kesten for their help in proofreading and testing this hat.  I want to thank Malabrigo yarns for provinding me  with the Malabrigo Arroyo.
