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!

Ravenclaw Philosopher's Hat

I decided to rename this hat , The Ravenclaw Philosopher's Hat. It is a combination of Tapestry Crochet , crochet cables and FPdc. If you want to know more about Tapestry Crochet from a teaching point of view you may want to visit the website TapestryCrochet.com
From far the bottom edge in the blue looks like a kitty cat! I used Knit Picks Andean Silk "Slate" and Knit Picks "Blue Ink" Wool of the Andes. I used a combination of F 3.75 mm and G 4.00 mm hooks. The reason behind this is to add texture to the hat.

The hat is very comfortable and it will be followed by a Griffindor Philosopher's Hat. One of the interesting stitches that I used on this hat was the Reverse Double Crochet, which I used to make the edging. It created a very interesting look and texture to the finishing of this hat.

Thanks for stopping by!

Another great one! I never heard of Reverse DC. Is it just like doing backwards SC for crab stitch? Either way, great hat.
