Winter hats

I have been busy with my needles and hooks, but just not good about sharing what I’ve done. So, I’m starting to catch up today. I made a crochet hat for a friend with his yarn. It is my favorite crochet hat pattern from Ellen Gormley, called the Driftwood Cap. It can be found in the fall 2008 Interweave Crochet magazine.

It almost looks like knitting.

But I did also knit a cap – this one’s for my nephew in California. This was done with worsted weight yarn and size 3 needles, so it’s nice and thick.

It is knit flat and sewn up from brim to cap. I’m very pleased how it turned out.

I have only 4 projects on hooks and needles at the moment and am trying very hard not to start another project before one is finished. I seem to need to have a variety to choose from at any time. I also always have yarn and hook in my purse to work on a hot pad at any time when I’m not busy doing anything else.
