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!

derives from medieval Latin pōmum "apple" and grānātum "seeded". It may be shaped into a regular
hat, a slouch or a Tam. It all depends on how you block it. It has a lot of versatility, for many shapes and  head sizes.I hope that you will discover your favorite style, then make one for you and one for a friend.
