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!

Djerba Moon Hat

Hey everyone, is about that time of the year, the time for Stitches West.  This is the hat  I wanted to share. Work in progress.  The hat is modified from a pattern I got on Ravelry, is a free pattern it is called the "Evenstar Hat".

 This hat is actually all knit, but I am not picking up stitches, instead I am making the top in crochet.   Crocheting the top is going to be done before the night is done. I re charted the hat , so that I had the least of problems knitting, the instructions are not very clear for me, but others may find it easy. It has taken me a long time to make the head band, but before the night is over, I will be done with the crochet top.  The band is made flat and grafted closed.

Well it is done. It has given me a lot of inspiration for a future hat. Thanks for stopping by!
