Hello my crafty friends,
We are in the midst of having a heat wave, at this time of year we are usually treated to a couple of weeks of beautifully warm temperatures. This year however it has been hot for several weeks so the weather is definitely a treat and the thoughts of yarns is usually a distant thought, for me I haven’t picked up my hook seriously for several months so I am enjoying my time with creating a few smaller projects such as hats.I now have a few hats done for the fall season and I hope that I will be able to hit a few craft fairs this fall/winter season. This will all be dependent on my health and if there is some improvements so please send some good vibes to me. So with this new found resurgence of interest in my love of crochet I have become a pinning fool and I am looking forward to receiving a purchase of a Japanese crochet stitch book I found on Etsy. But I probably wouldn’t have been so brave if I hadn’t found a pattern for a hat that I truly love. I think I found this hat on Laurie Wheelers blog and I truly loved it and bought the pattern right away. The pattern for hat is from DaisyEzyCraft shop on Etsy. I just love it and truly enjoyed making it! Please find the picture of the hat I took off of her shop page on Etsy.
This is one of the best patterns I have come across with step by step crochet photo tutorials and excellent instructions that for someone like me who isn’t as versed on crocheting with charts is very great as I have often passed on patterns without the written instructions. As you may have guessed I have often felt a bit intimidated with crochet charts but since following this pattern with such excellent presentation I don’t feel quite as timid as I did before. I did send out my thanks to this shop owner but I just had to feature her design and the hat with you. I do have my second one completed now but don’t seem to have a model around to get its photographed. I will share at a later date when I have one ready and a model. So I bid you a goodnight I hope you all have a great deal of warm weather to enjoy in this next few weeks!
For some time now I have dreamed of becoming a crochet designer. So when I contacted Elann and they gave me a chance, I was thrilled to work with them and their high quality yarns.
