Happy New Year Everybody! Yes, I’m still crocheting hats! I’m determined to carry on with my charity hat crochet into 2012. I finished the light and lacy Two Stitch Hat I was making from a pattern in Bonnie Barker’s Noggins & Necks. When I started this hat, Noggins & Necks was out of stock on the Leisure Arts website, but it’s available again now! And at the request of a reader, here are pictures of all of the projects in the book:
Basket Weave Hat & Scarf
Woven Stitch Hat & Scarf
Two Stitch Hat & Scarf
Fisherman Hat & Scarf
Braided Hat & Scarf
Over the holidays, I also finished three hats in various sizes made from the Baby Hat pattern in Drew Emborsky’s new pattern book—Hug It Out! Very sweet and quick to finish! (And I have to admit, I’ve discovered yet another yarn to love—Bernat Cottontots. That’s what I made the yellow hat with. It feels really nice in my hands!)
Finally, I’m a little intimidated, but I’m also contemplating the stitch patterns in the new Kooler Encyclopedia of Crochet-Revised in view of creating a hat design of my own. What do you think? Can I do it?
Anywho…Here’s wishing all of you the happiest of new years! Why not get it off to a good start by doing something nice for someone in need?
