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!

Chartreuse Fall Hat FO

The Chartreuse Fall Hat is a hat from Ruth Sorensen, you can look her up on the Internet, she has a beautiful e-book that you can purchase and you will learn some new challenges in color-stranding knitting.
I really enjoyed the making of this hat and it was a bit time consuming as I was following the chart religiously, I thought right! Well I did a different bottom for this hat than the one she recommends so it became very apparent to me by row number 20 something that I needed to jump up to row 30 something if I wanted the hat to look nice.
My guess was right as the hat came out the right size for me. I really enjoy these hats and working on them can be addictive, but the end product is gorgeous, all you need is the right contrasting color of yarn. I like this kind of green a lot. Well my friends it is a nice fall day and I have my Monday Knitting and Crochet Group to go to, I will ask one of the ladies to teach me how to cast on a toe for toe up socks. Thanks for stopping by!

Chartreuse (pronounced /ʃɑrˈtruːz/, /ʃɑrˈtruːs/; French IPA: [ʃarˈtʁɶz]) (the web color) is a color halfway between yellow and green that was named because of its resemblance to the green color of one of the French liqueurs called green chartreuse, introduced in 1764; whereas chartreuse (the traditional color) is a yellow color mixed with a small amount of green that was named because of its resemblance to the yellow color of one of the French liqueurs called yellow chartreuse, introduced in 1838.[1]
