Last fall, I tried my hand at crocheting and knitting hats. Truth be told, although the crocheted hat might seem more complicated, the knitted hat was almost the creative death of me!
John.e is wearing the black hat with the white stripes. That particular hat was made using two needles, because, as I have admitted once before, try as I might, I cannot knit in the round. I would basically knit the hat pattern on two long needles and then carefully stitch up the seam to create a round hat. Now, truth be told, that’s not a bad thing. The hat he’s wearing worked out really well and he got quite a lot of use out of it. I’m sure he’ll wear it again this winter.
I’m wearing the red striped hat. That hat was crocheted. And to be completely honest, even though it looks a little more complicated than John.e’s knit two, purl two hat, it was much easier. I’m not going to spend the time to type out the details, because I followed the pattern over at Playin’ Hooky Designs. It’s a great pattern and very easy to follow.
As soon as the cooler weather sets in, I’ll get back to my crocheting again. For now though, it’s too hot to sit with a pile of yarn in my lap. 😉
