Easy Crochet Ribbed Hat Pattern. Allen Williams I wasn’t expecting to crochet any hats today but this one snuck in to my afternoon.

Easy Crochet Ribbed Hat Pattern

We started Veteran’s Day (Remembrance Day here in Canada) by visiting Michael’s Crafts Store as it was having a two-day sale. I found a 20% off coupon in the local flyer so I couldn’t pass it up. I loaded up on yarn for future projects and then we decided to have dim sum before heading home. Not wanting to take an MSG-induced nap, I decided to put this green and blue variegated yarn to use. I made the hat as suggested in the pattern (size K hook, worsted weight yarn) but I found the hat a bit too tight for a normal adult head. You can really see the crocheted rib style in this photo (and I love the colors in this variegated yarn): It’s only mid-afternoon so I’m thinking there’s time to make one more hat before dinner (assuming I’m not distracted now by blogging).

Although a thank-you is not nearly enough for the work you’ve done and continue to do, I hope you know how much it means to me! Newsletter May 2010 - A crocheted flower brooch. What better time of year for flowers than spring?

Newsletter May 2010 - A crocheted flower brooch

Crochet lends itself beautifully to a number of things, and one of those is jewelry. Necklaces, bracelets and brooches. I love making these small accessories between larger projects. Even if you don't have a lot of time, you can whip up a little something with a beautiful result. This time around, I wanted to make a brooch in the shape of a multilayered flower. The flower here is crocheted in DMC Senso, a fingering weight cotton or cotton blend yarn (depending on the type of Senso used), with a 2.5 mm (US B-1 or C-2) hook. This flower is also the occasion to learn a new stitch: the half treble (htr). This stitch is right between the double crochet and the treble in height, and makes a beautiful transition between those stitches. It is not a common stitch (I had not seen it before I read Suzann's book), and as far as I know, there is no standard symbol for charting it.

So, now you've learned the half treble stitch. Snuggles Project. How to Crochet with Pop-Tops. Crochet a Flower With Pull Tabs For crafters who want to know how to crochet with pull tabs, we've come up with this free crochet pattern that will teach you how to crochet a flower.
