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!

In Between Seasons Cap

This hat is made with the same left over yarn from the skein that I made the Reverser Cap . I was very pleased to see that it was possible o make two caps with the same yarn. This is the first time I used Cascade Yarn and I will tell you that I love this yarn. I cut the yarn too short in one area to do the Kitchener's stitch, so I cut another piece and fused them together. I love good Wool!
The cap was a bit longer once it has was blocked. I was able to cable without a cable needle (Thanks to Krystopher). Some of the wonderful techniques that you will get to practice with this pattern here are:

LT Left Twist
RT Right Twist
ssk slip (as if to purl) slip (as if to purl), then knit two together
K2 tog knit 2 together
Kitchener Stitch
Picking up stitches

Thanks for stopping by!
