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!

"Hyperion" a unisex hat



hyperion hat collage




Hyperion ("The High-One") was one of the twelve Titan children of Gaia (Earth) and Uranus (Sky or Heaven) who, led by Cronus, overthrew Uranus and were themselves later overthrown by the Olympians. With his sister, the Titaness Theia, Hyperion fathered Helios (Sun), Selene (Moon) and Eos (Dawn).


Hyperion's son Helios was referred to in early mythological writings as Helios Hyperion. He was always distinguished from Helios; the former was ascribed the characteristics of the "God of Watchfulness, Wisdom and Light", while the latter became the physical incarnation of the Sun.

Another beautiful hat in my series honoring the Gods and human divinity, it is timeless piece with some strong lines. Embrace the divine spark within you and wear it with pride. 3rd Treasury of knitting by Barbara G. Walker Patchwork Cable 1 adapted for a circular knitted hat by me.
